Product Description:

Sparkling to life in a manner unlike anything they've done to date, Portland, Oregon trio Mimicking Birds spread their wings on their third LP, Layers of Us. While retaining just enough of the soothing, pastoral spirit of their first two efforts, the band inject much-needed energy and vigor to their sound, resulting in a more engaging and immediate experience. They shake off the titular sediment on "Dust Layers," a pleasant ditty that finds the Nick Lacy-fronted group expanding their sonic space with production flourish and rhythm. Here, they're less Bon Iver or Fleet Foxes and more Midlake, War on Drugs, or the Shins. The rest of the album follows suit, as the driving "Another Time" and the upbeat "Sunlight Daze" jolt Mimicking Birds to life. Aaron Hanson and Adam Trachsel's rhythm section are put to work on the aforementioned tracks, as well as the urgent "A Part" and the loopy "Island Shore," which features their label head, Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse), on the Primus-esque vocal breakdown. It's a clear spiritual departure from the campfire acoustics of Mimicking Birds and Eons, and yet they've lost none of their earthy soul. Layers of Us melts some of the band's delicate iciness with a warm, beating heart. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
