Pascal Babare - Native Birds     Folk, Pop, Rock, Easy Listening 16/03/2018
Babare spent his childhood living between the suburban sprawl of Melbourne and Sydney and an ashramin Lake County, California.
‘Native Birds’ is short and poppy, like Babare’s earlier work, but sonically lush, with horns, synth and electronic miscellanea weaving together to create a melodic lead worthy of Brian Wilson or Jim O’Rourke. Lyrically, every line folds gently into the next, in an approach figurative, melancholic, generous and wry.
