New Mynabirds video

Laura Burhenn, better known as Saddle Creek artist The Mynabirds, will be kicking off another round of tour dates with her band this weekend.  But before hitting the road she was kind enough to bestow a gift in the form of a video for the bittersweet, stomping anthem “Let The Record Go.”  The clip premiered on Stereogum earlier today and you can check it out on Vimeo as well (feel free to post and share!)  

The Mynabirds have also added a slew of shows in September and October, so if you haven’t experienced Laura’s husky, soulful voice in-person, now is your chance.  The run includes dates with Al Green, Built To Spill, Crooked Fingers, and David Bazan. 
The former George James vocalist is still riding high off her critically acclaimed debut album as The Mynabirds, What We Lose In The Fire We Gain In The Flood.  Produced by Richard Swift, the album name may sound like an old Eastern proverb, but that’s simply because Laura deliberately came up with a title that would sound like one.  Following the breakup of her former band, she began composing new material that fell into two categories: loss and recovery.  As a result, What We Lose takes a decidedly Zen-like approach to healing that anyone can relate to.

Don’t Miss The Mynabirds On Tour!
