New music: "Love in Wartime"


Birds of Chicago, the husband-and-wife duo of JT Nero and Allison Russell, reassert the simple notion that beautiful words and music can still tap deep veins of emotion. With stark, elemental imagery that feels like scripture, or a lost folk song recovered, The Birds draw heavily on the gospel tradition, and they call their music secular gospel. For Birds of Chicago, every word counts. Every note counts. No gold-dusting, no filler. Music is the good news, and the music of this duo has a quiet but seismic urgency. Birds of Chicago alternate moody rock swagger with ghostly soundscapes. Their music is melancholy but never shoe-gazing. raw and soul-rich. Birds of Chicago have developed a fervent following, touring 200 nights a year since their formation in late 2012. They're coming to Michigan with an ambitious new release, "Love in Wartime," that they call "a rock and roll suite with a cinematic sweep." It's co-produced by Nero and Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars).
