Mimicking Birds

Layers of Us

Glacial Pace

Feb 05, 2018 Web Exclusive Bookmark and Share

There’s always been a fragile air to Nate Lacy’s songwriting, and it continues to underpin Mimicking Birds as they cement their place as the preeminent Pacific Northwest musical environmentalists. The natural world fascinates Lacy, sending him off to his own Walden, the results infiltrating lyrics at every turn. Layers of Us might find him singing of the lonely beauty of coastlines and mountains, or the terrifying power of giant waves.

Sticking to Isaac Brock’s Glacial Pace label, the Modest Mouse frontman offering up backing vocals on “Island Shore,” it seems they’ve found a comfortable home that’s working for them. Perhaps it’s a little too comfortable as Layers of Us doesn’t come with an over-abundance of energy, but when they can roll out a song like “Great Wave” maybe Lacy and his bandmates should just be left to it.

This is also a subtle departure for the band, or an enhancement depending on how you feel about gently misty indie folk. The sound is beefed up, layers added, denser and more fulfilling. Sometimes it runs the risk of floating away on its own melodies, but enough tracks take everyone floating with them. (www.mimickingbirds.com)
