Album To Check Out: The Mynabirds – Generals

The Mynabirds is the solo moniker of singer-songwriter Laura Burhenn, former member of Georgie James. Recalling 60s old soul roots and country influences, Burhenn has a looping hypnotic voice that she projects onto her songs which is meant to soothe yet challenge your soul.

Generals, The Mynabirds‘ sophomore album, is meant to be Burhenn’s protest album. As such, it is a much livelier and grittier record than her graceful debut, What We Lose in the Fire We Gain in the Flood. Amongst the grit though, hints of loveliness and beauty shines through in the album thanks to Burhenn’s heartfelt vocals and emotions.

Stream the anthemic rollicking title track and watch a teaser clip for the amazing, powerful Mightier Than The Sword, a true highlight of the album.

The Mynabirds are coming to St Louis on 7/1 to play at The Firebird. A fine way to spend your Sunday evening (tickets here)
