Bowerbirds (Amy Pearl/WNYC)

Ornithologists will tell you that bowerbirds are known for their unusual courting behaviors – which includes building complex and brightly colored structures to attract mates. On their latest record, the North Carolina band Bowerbirds takes inspiration from their namesake, layering onto a base of vocals and guitars plenty of strings, brass and electronics. The result is the album “The Clearing” – and the band joins us to play some of it live.
