Bird Streets is the musical endeavor of New York songwriter John Brodeur. The self-titled debut album, out now on Omnivore Recordings, 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.

BIRD STREETS will be on tour this December
