Odd name aside, the band called Baby Birds Don’t Drink Milk is really just a bunch of regular guys playing some compelling drone-ish electric folk. The band is originally from Lawrence Kansas and has existed for ten years (minus a bit of a hiatus). This year finds a new release, a full length due in March called Burritos (Fire Talk Records). But for this Palisades show opening for Oneida, the band concentrated mostly on last year’s “mini-LP” release Kill The Fuzz with four of the six songs performed culled from that 2015 release. The thirty-five minute set offered a bunch of different looks at Baby Birds, including the quiet intro, some noisy segments, some folk harmonies and ultimately a little bit of psych. There was even a little drum solo. But the takeaway is that this band is very easy to like, and they will be showing up on these pages in the future.

Eric recorded this set with the AKGs mounted on a stand at the front of the stage. I mixed that with the fine soundboard recording and the results are quite excellent. Enjoy!
