Birdlips is Cliff Usher (vocals/guitar) and Lindsay Pitts (keyboard/vocals). The duo met in Charlottesville, VA while finishing school at the University of Virginia. Cliff was studying art and Spanish and had just gotten back from a year abroad in Spain and backpacking around Europe. Heâd taken his guitar along with him and written a number of songs about his travels. Lindsay was writing her thesis on the changing face of indie rock and the two hit it off at a local pizza joint.
Cliff brought Lindsay into the studio to record electric piano, organ, and backup vocals on a couple of his songs. They ended up co-writing several new tunes. Birdlips and their first LP, Cardboard Wings, were born. Cliff and Lindsay are already working hard on material for their next album, tentatively titled Drift. United by their mutual love of sixties psychedelia and fascination with the hope and vitality of that time period, the new songs are reminiscent of the impassioned folk of that era.
The new full-length album, Cardboard Wings, is about finding oneself in a foreign land. The dark, introspective lyrics chronicle an existential crisis: having the ground you once thought was solid swept out from under you and finding that the "truth" that kept you grounded in the first place was as one-dimensional as a stage prop.
Cardboard Wings was recorded at Monkeyclaus Studio in central Virginia in the summer and fall of 2007 and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side in New York.
