about

The songs on Magnificent Bird’s second record Every Little Thing She Does Is Tragic are not populated by happy contented people. Norman songwriter Nathan Lofties instead is interested in broken vessels. Misanthropes, cynics, and alcoholics, bitter men made meaner by failure and age who shake their fist at an absurd and overlarge universe. It’s a bleak noir of sad diary entries, it’s paced expertly, and occasionally pauses to let a little light in in the form of a beautiful humming string crescendo.

With drummer and studio wiz Steve Boaz, Lofties brings these sad tales to a creepy sort of life, whether they’re plucking a banjo, or summoning a ghost chorus from the other side.

-Matt Carney, Look@OKC

Songs on Every Little Thing She Does Is Tragic resemble the dreary, acoustic guitar-driven storytelling of Elliott Smith and the gentle orchestrated flourishes of a Grizzly Bear record. Tracks often start quiet and sometimes build to a cathartic, noisy endings like on the haunting opener "Don't Give In." Quieter songs on the album never meander, they just rarely get in a hurry.

-Nathan Poppe, The Oklahoman

about

Magnificent Bird Norman, Oklahoma

Magnificent Bird is a compulsion. Something seeping up from the earthquake-fractued clay of Oklahoma, brooding and bruised, at once virgin yet familiar. A small band’s dedication to the failing light of their 20s and the washed out visage of the future
