Chris Meck and the Guilty Birds
It’s 4 A.M. Somewhere
The power of Chris Meck and the Guilty Birds’ debut comes from several places at once, but is exerted with a devastating focus.
First, there’s the precision of its fine power trio. Calandra Ysquierdo’s prowling, menacing bass and agile backing vocals explode off Michelle Bacon’s relentlessly pounding drums and splashing cymbals. They bolster lead singer Chris Meck’s more fragile bravado and provide ample space for his sharp, clean, ever-reaching guitar.
