LISTEN: Bird By Snow
By Quinn S.
Somewhere between woodsy folk and mountainous ambient soundscapes lies Bird By Snow, the project of Big Sur, CA producer Fletcher Tucker (Daniel Higgs, Little Wings). There's an evocative chill to his hushed yet encompassing alternative folk. It billows, it ebbs, it flows, it trickles, it floods, but most of all, it draws you in. Tucker has a knack for bottling sounds as vast as the Pacific into songs that convey both an intimate charm and a spacious ambiance; they're sprawling but no less direct.
"Grace" and "Before Names" are from Bird By Snow's new album, Offering, out September 15th via Gnome Life Records. Pre-order it here.
