Citizen Bird

I’m normally a patient guy. I coach a soccer team of sixteen 3-5 year olds for crying out loud. But I get impatient in two areas: waiting for new albums to come out, and waiting for my rare eBay purchases to arrive. We here at 3hive just love the Swedes; in fact, I’d expand that to all Scandanavians. In the midst of Sam’s Swedish shoegazing frenzy this past week, I finally lost patience in waiting for the new Citizen Bird album to come out before I put them on 3hive. (Plus, I didn’t want him to beat me to them, cause you know, that happens here at the 3hive; insults and fisticuffs have been know to fly.) I’ve read anywhere from spring 2004 to spring 2005 for the release of their sophomore effort. While Swedish but not exactly shoegazers, they do follow in the footsteps of Loop, Suicide, Spacemen 3, Stereolab, and the Stooges, with their throbbing rhythms, pulsing Farfisas, and fuzzy guitars. That should hold me over until the album finally comes out. Now if I could only do something about the USPS…

  1. Ok, I am impressed. You coach 16 small kids and you are patient with them. You have my vote! I don't care what you are running for–you just have my vote!

  2. if your'e not hooked on theese two songs, check out my favourite song with silverbullit/CB – Magnetic City. It doesn't get any better. ever.

  3. Great band, one of the best actually. But, are you sure they should be called Citizen Bird? They have actually changed name once, they used to be called Silverbullet, but changed it to Silverbullit. Citizen Bird is the title of their second album, maybe their best, but last years Arc Light was also very good!
