"A rock-solid power pop gem.” -PopMatters

“Feels very much like an artist who is stepping outside of his comfort zone.” -AXS
"In his current incarnation as Bird Streets, Brodeur is knocking the ball out of the park." -Blurt

"1960s guitar jangle, 1970s guitar crunch, sharp lyrical wordplay, and hooks hooks hooks. Glorious." -CD Hotlist
“Betting On The Sun” is the debut single from Bird Streets, the musical endeavor of New York songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John Brodeur. The self-titled debut album contains 11 tracks written and performed in collaboration with Jason Falkner (Beck, Jellyfish, Daniel Johnston). It’s a dynamic collection of introspective indie-rock and power-pop that draws liberally on the music of decades past without being bluntly nostalgic, with Brodeur’s voice like an old friend you’re meeting for the first time.
