Epic garage rock for fans of The Band, Nick Cave, The Drones, Dylan, My Morning Jacket, Neil Young and Wilco..
Roving Cannibals, a fugitive de facto and a sparrow or two. Talk about a rogue’s gallery. Not to mention lost ghosts, drunken ship captains and an estranged stock broker.
They’re just some of the misfits that inhabit Brown Bird, the new album by Brisbane’s best kept secret MEXICO CITY.
Coming three years after the release of debut album (2006’s critically applauded Black Comedy), Brown Birdfinds the four-piece simultaneously refining and expanding on the template set down by the previous record.
The band said goodbye to longstanding member Mick Elliot, who was eventually replaced by Matt Tanner (GIANTS OF SCIENCE, MARY TREMBLES). They also big farewell to their first record label, to start anew with Brisbane’s Plus One Records (GIN CLUB, BLACKWATER FEVER, TEXAS TEA).
Brown Bird triumphs over these disruptions in thrilling fashion.
