Track Of The Day: Tweak Bird
Tweak Bird might sound like the name of a Sesame Street character, but they’re actually a psyched-out, groove-heavy band – and they provide the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all the Tracks Of The Day.
The band feature the Bird brothers Caleb (guitar) and Ashton (drums). The American pair mysteriously claim to have been influenced by “everything good you’ve never heard; our influences don’t exist, they’re made up”. In reality, it comes down to Kyuss, Melvins, Morphine and Tool. In fact, they toured last summer in the States with Maynard James Keenan and his quirky crew. They’ve also been out with noise craftsmen Big Business.
Tweak Bird’s debut album will be released in August on Souterrain Transmissions. It’s been produced by the Deaf Nephews (Dale Crover from The Melvins and Toshi Kasai of Big Business).
A single, Ah Sun (Ahh Ahh), is released in seven-inch format on June 7. But right now you can download this song for free.
