NO BIRD SING "Definition Sickness" LP out now.  Reply with quote  



Minneapolis-based 3 piece hip-hop band NO BIRD SING has signed to STRANGE FAMOUS RECORDS! Their new album “DEFINITION SICKNESS” will be available worldwide on NOVEMBER 12, 2013.

3 exclusive SFRstore Pre-Order package deals available here: www.tinyurl.com/DefinitionSickness

Stand outs in the indie-rap haven of Minnesota, No Bird Sing combines the talents of emcee Joe Horton, drummer/producer Graham O’Brien, and guitarist/producer Robert Mulrennan. With “Definition Sickness”, the trio has maintained the integrity of their live-band roots while exploring a more produced sound that ranges from stark minimalism to lush expansiveness.

"AND WAR" is the first video.



The first single, “DON’T THINK” features Sage Francis:

Other guests on the album include FIX collective cohorts Crescent Moon (Kill the Vultures) and Kristoff Krane, Sadistik, Chastity Brown, James Diers (Halloween, Alaska), Aby Wolf, Adam Svec. and Molly Dean.

Good stuff. Good to hear a brand new Sage verse as well. Killed it.

No Bird Sing are great group of guys and I'm glad they're on SFR! Great pairing. Being a drummer first and a "wanna be" producer second, I've been following what Graham O'Brian's been up to for while. I love his darker production and style like on Pray for Paralysis, not to mention Joe's involvement with Mixed Blood Majority. No Bird Sing is a solid group. I can't wait for this release.

Speaking of great, just like Adambomb said, Sage you killed it on your verse. Well done all around!

This kinda sounds like a Atmosphere/Linkin Park collab. I enjoyed it.

I'm really happy to see all the positive comments about this signing and the song. However, part of the reason I haven't released my own album is because I keep doing features. haha. There have been quite a bit in the past few years and if I strung them all together it would make a pretty good album.

It's great having NBS on the squad. We started working with them over 6 months ago and kept it all hush hush until this announcement. Apparently the video they're working on for the next single is one some whole next shit. That next next. I'm getting anxious for it. The pool of talent in Minneapolis and their support base never ceases to amaze me.

It's always nice to get some blurb love from URB:

"My gut is telling me it’s one of the best rap songs of 2013."

with that said all your recent features are nice and refreshing, i enjoy when artists take time to do that because they can be totally free most of the time instead sticking to an "album" all-songs-have-to-go-together-type-deal

p.s. this is an excellent track all in all, looking forward to hearing the rest

Whoa...a little late to the party, but this is really exciting stuff.

Kudos to SFR and NBS for this.

"AND WAR" is the first video.
It is, in our admittedly biased opinion, fucking amazing:

I had put off checking this stuff out for some reason, and am now finding myself replaying "And War" and "Don't Think" pretty regularly.

Everything from the production to the video for "And War", the free download for "Don't Think" with a new Sage verse is like early SFR Xmas presents.
