BARSUK SIGNS THE WOODEN BIRDS – DEBUT LP MAGNOLIA OUT MAY 2009
Andrew Kenny is a native Texan who after nearly six years in Brooklyn, NY has returned to beautiful Austin, TX. He's best known as the singer/songwriter behind mellow indie favorites the American Analog Set. However, he's also performed as a guest artist with the Album Leaf, Her Space Holiday, Styrofoam, Arthur and Yu, Ola Podrida, and most recently the Broken Social Scene.
His latest project is called the Wooden Birds and is his best effort to date. The Wooden Birds' first album, Magnolia, is due out this Spring on Barsuk Records in the US & Canada and on Morr Music in Europe. Fans of the AmAnSet will recognize his voice and song writing immediately, but the arrangements on Magnolia are more vocal and percussion heavy than anything he's done before.
The Wooden Birds will be touring throughout the year, and will be making an appearance at South By Southwest this March. We're happy to report that Kenny will be a busy fellow at this year's festival, as The American Analog Set will be performing their 1999 record The Golden Band in its entirety [!!!] at the InSound.com 10th anniversary party.
Two tracks are currently streaming on The Wooden Birds MySpace page, which can be found here. The Wooden Birds also includes Ola Podrida songwriter and David Gordon Green, film score composer David Wingo, co-producer Chris Michaels, vocalist, guitarist, and AmAnSet guest artist Leslie Sisson, and Lymbic System drummer Michael Bell.
