Active Bird Community
Active Bird Community
Active Bird Community is a Brooklyn band formed in 2005 by members Tom D’Agustino, Zach Slater and Andrew Wolfson when they were in middle school. Over 10 years later, with the addition of Quinn McGovern on drums, Active Bird Community continues to enliven the stage with their sprightly slacker vibes reminiscent of 90’s indie rock. While ABC was young and experimenting with their sound, early listeners sensed something teeming beneath the surface. In the years since, they’ve released 2 full length albums and played hundreds of shows to adoring fans and delighted newcomers alike. In that time, their sound has gone under numerous revisions—not out of necessity but out of a tacit refusal to stagnate or sound like anything else. As the members matured, fell in (and out) of love, moved around and made their own way, the lyrics and arrangements of each song reflected both the harmony and the discord that comes with growing up in New York. Though, as anyone who’s seen them live can tell you, their music is so infectious you can’t help but lose yourself right along with them.

Just to let you know. Philadelphia's Mannequin Pussy shred. So if you don't like bands that shred, tread lightly over these next few paragraphs. Tread. Lightly. There are no half measures.

These three shredful people (that's Marisa mastering the vocals/guitar - and how about Thanasi's guitar skills too? - don't even get me started on what Kaleen does to the drums) make the punk rock. You want wails? You got it. Riffs? Check. Thunder booms? Yes, please. Are you also interested in hearing pretty melodies that are sometimes buried under the noise but are there just the same and therefore make the shreds all the more beautiful? How about run-on sentences? Yes. That sounds lovely. I'll have all that.

As of this dynamic writing, the band recently released a new EP (on August 18th in the Year of Depend Adult Undergarment) called "Kiss Me Tender" and I'm sorry to say... it shreds. Those of you still reading who don't like bands that shred have two options as I see it. #1: Stop reading this. #2: Get yer head out of your ass and get into bands that shred. Both are equally good options.

If you chose Option #1: I wish you the best of luck in all your future non-shredding endeavors (although, of course, I'm talking to nobody since you've already stopped reading).

If you chose Option #2: below is the Mannequin Pussy EP that I recently referenced two paragraphs above. You're welcome.

But you really shouldn't thank me. I just copied and pasted the embed code. Tough work, to be sure. A music blobber prepares. But Mannequin Pussy are the ones who created the damn thing. And they are good peeps for doing so.

(Look for their debut full-length to be re-released VERY soon via the lovely people at Tiny Engines, too.)

In summation, I'm not sure if you have heard, but Mannequin Pussy shred.
