4 stars The mid nineteen eighties in Boston was a terrible time and place for good music. Punk and new wave were still getting most of the gigs in the clubs. Progressive bands, despite a huge college scene, including one of the top music schools in the country, were nowhere to be found. Except for one strange exception. Birdsongs of the Mesozoic played regularly in Cambridge, just down the street from where I worked in a record store. Their ability to get gigs probably was because two of their members were originally in Mission Of Burma, an extremely popular punk band.

Anyway, this EP perfectly captures the spirit and creativity of this bizarre chamber rock group. Blending RIO, electronic, classical, and just about any oddball sound they could find, Birdsongs created their own genre.

Highly recommended.
