Texas Platters Finale

Bitter Birds

"Blacklist"/"The Hawk"

When not running Gallery Black Lagoon, guitarist/vocalist Singer Mayberry and her drummer/vocalist husband David Lujan crank out black-hewn indie-pop alongside the latter's bassist brother, Marcos. Foreboding basslines serve as the fulcrum for both tracks here, providing an effective emotive counterweight to Mayberry's resolute high-end vocals. Sparsely deployed guitar and drums finish out the trio's tasteful arrangements. Paired with exquisite silk-screened cover art, Bitter Birds deliver a complete package.
