FLY or DIE II: bird dogs of paradise is the much-anticipated follow-up to composer, trumpeter, and (now) singer Jaimie Branch’s debut Fly or Die, which was dubbed one of the “Best Albums of 2017” by The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, NPR Music, WIRE, Stereogum, Aquarium Drunkard, and more. bird dogs of paradise is the result of a never-satisfied Branch pushing her distinct style of progressive composition to new heights — while also stepping forward as a vocalist for the first time. Her unflinching, unhinged mix of anger and humour, plus searing trumpet piled atop massive down-tuned blues creates a sound that’s unequivocally her own. Conjuring up moments of real reckoning—hopefulness, hopelessness, danger, and joy—Branch dares you to feel again, or as she says, “now sound the trumpets and get ready to roll.” Click the link below to visit their website, or visit them on Facebook: Fly or Die II: Bird Dogs of Paradise by Jaimie Branch
