bourbon is my special friend
"It is a project still very much in its formative stages, and will probably remain that way for the duration of the project." So says Bill Baird of SOUND team about his solo project, which goes by various monikers such as loboSunset, Bill Bard, sunset}}}}}}}}}}, and this Friday at The Cavern, "Bill Bird".
The important thing to keep in mind in regards to Bill's solo project, however, is that these songs are genius. In "Bourbon", Bill has crafted something entirely original, bizarre, and totally infectious at the same time, while "Dear Friend" is an aching, echoing Beatles-y romp that fades into a percussive cacophony.
