Thomas Paine once said, “reason obeys itself; and ignorance submits to whatever is dictated to it.” Fits of Reason, the new self-produced album by Brown Bird, raises its hat to Mr. Paine in a flurry of cerebral themes that surface in the album’s eleven songs. The band’s two members, David Lamb and MorganEve Swain, build their sound from the foundations of blues and American roots music, using the simple foot-percussion, violin, cello and upright bass for which they are known, while expanding Swain’s vocal presence and flaunting Lamb’s lyrical mastery. Recorded in their home-state of Rhode Island at Machines With Magnets, Fits of Reason is inspired by the writings of Omar Khayyam, Christopher Hitchens and Plato, among others, and grapples with the human condition in a smooth but unapologetic departure from the band’s previous release, Salt for Salt. With the introduction of electric guitar and electric bass, and a more prominent display of the band’s Middle Eastern, metal and psych-rock influences, Fits of Reason delves into heavier territory and invites the listener to hear with discerning ears. Brown Bird spent most of 2012 on the road, supporting Trampled by Turtles, The Devil Makes Three, Yonder Mountain String Band and Horse Feathers, and wowed the crowd at the Newport Folk Festival with their first main-stage appearance. The band will continue criss-crossing the US in 2013, with a full US tour planned in April and an appearance scheduled at the Sasquatch Festival.
