The Wooden Birds just debuted the first video for the second full-length album, Two Matchsticks. Directed and created by animator Justin Goldwater, the hand crafted video for the album's title track follows the magical and colorful evolution and destruction of some very interesting wood.
The Austin-based Wooden Birds is led by Andrew Kenny, who previously led American Analog Set and was a touring member/collaborator with Broken Social Scene in 2007. In creating Two Matchsticks, the band drew on the strengths of their live show, making it more driven, upbeat and fuller than the Birds' previous efforts. The album also features Wooden Birds members Leslie Sisson and Matt Pond who, in addition to singing backing vocals on the album, sing lead and duet with Kenny on some of the album's most memorable songs. Other special guests include Ben Gibbard from Death Cab For Cutie along with members of Ola Podrida.
