Add to that list Glendale, Calif. band Biirdie with their second release, Catherine Avenue, a cohesive collection of sun-kissed pop tinted with ’70s folk rock tendencies about the people and places of Los Angeles. “Who Were You Thinkin’ Of” (“when we were making love last night?”) will remind you of a beach blanket bingo party that contradicts its awkward subject matter, while the dreamy “L.A. Is Mars” will make your heart skip a beat.
But more notably, Catherine Avenue succeeds in recreating ’70s L.A. country-rock, when legends James Taylor and the Eagles reigned over the scene.
Catherine Avenue is currently available.
