Bird Show Lightning Ghost
- Words: Fred Miketa
- Label: Kranky
Bird Show might remind listeners of early records by Joan of Arc, but with the ceremonial dissonance of a funeral and wedding taking place simultaneously. Propelled by Ben Vida‘s passion for throbbing percussion and effortless chanting, Lightning Ghost is a quest for a sonic connection with nature, God, and the mysticism of sound. While each track pulses through a number of stages-be it lush humming or schizophrenic noise-the songs rarely exceed five minutes, leaving you refreshed after each emotional trainwreck. Without sounding exceedingly ambitious, it appears Bird Show is well on its way to sublimely realizing its barrage of lo-fi screeches and swells.
