"Much of what Birdcloud does is reactionary to what country music has become — those dirt roads and the trucks that drive 'em — but also to their experience growing up in the South: the obsessive religious indoctrination, the caged racism... Those types of songs — true-to-life, with a healthy dose of humor — are actually a longstanding country tradition." - ROLLING STONE "Raunchy Country: Inside the Genre's History of Comedy and Irreverence." Apr. 2016
“Jasmin Kaset and Makenzie Green of the Nashville duo Birdcloud are completely fucked up. That said, we hope that they show up to every fucking party we ever throw for as long as we live. They’re bound to say and do things that are inconceivable and all kinds of wrong. They will get loud and stand-offish. They would drive a car into the pool, if we had one, they would get naked and they wouldn’t likely do something that they’d always be remembered for. Odds are the nudity and the car in the pool wouldn’t even rank in the top five most memorable moments of the night, when it comes to what the two members of Birdcloud are capable of.” -DAYTROTTER
"The mystery that animates Birdcloud’s best music is a dialectic of identity, a cruel compassion... What it does do is give the loneliness of an anonymous woman a couple of absurd moments to strut and fret in your mind before disappearing once again into oblivion. Historically, this is what country music has always done best." -VICE Noisey "Southern Hells: Redemption and Ridicule in Birdcloud's America." Mar. 2015
Stage notes: band needs 2 d.i. boxes for acoustic guitar and mandolin, and 2 mics with boom stands center stage facing each other.
Today Material Girls tease the internet a bit more, releasing the B-side of the record with CL’s premiere of “Tightrope.”
Though the dark vocals and signature trumpets and saxophones remain, the song reveals a jauntier and more sardonic tone. The energetic bass and spoken-word lyrics (“I ask for advice / I fuck it up twice”) evoke influences ranging from the Talking Heads to Ought. The band members spoke with CL via email about the B-side, social media ennui, the allure of the unknown, and what’s in store for Material Girls’ future.
