The result is predictably great. What’s not to like when that voice meets minor-key rock bombardment?
Heron Oblivion contrasts the fragility of Baird’s vocals with fiery dynamics, and while the associations might be a bit gothic for some, the album also dips right into a steaming cauldron of 1960s guitar psychedelia that never gets old, because it’s so seldom referenced in any serious fashion.
If this is your cup of patchouli, it might be worth a dip into Espers’ II or Comets On Fire’s Blue Cathedral.
