The Skinny: We want to introduce you to a Brooklyn-based rock band called The Falling Birds. Their sound has been described as “grungy rocker”, “blues infused”, “country with a whiskey roughness”, “punk too limiting”, and “melting pot of American music”. Either way, it’s fucking bad-ass and you need to hear it – listen to their song “Sweet Things That Kill” now!

“Sweet Things That Kill” is the first single from their upcoming EP, Til We All Fall Down. Their musical range, creativity and instrumental skills defy easy categorization. They are consummate storytellers. They spin tales of joy and heartbreak, honed in the cauldron of life growing up in Albany, New York and the rural Mohawk River Valley observing first hand their inexorable economic and social decay.

On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
