Congress of Starlings is Aerin Tedesco and Andrea Bunch (whose solo albums you can find right here on CD Baby, too!) Go to cdbaby.com/group/congressofstarli to see all our albums in one place! Albedo is an exciting concoction of traditional and unexpected elements, Albedo features tracks that recently won awards in the Great Lakes Songwriting Contest and Indyindie's Battle of the Bands. Aerin Tedesco and Andrea Bunch's trademark vocal harmonies soar atop original samples and acoustic guitars. Aerin coaxes new tricks out of old dogs as she rocks her antique tenor guitars (1934 Gibson archtop and 1927 Gibson) alongside dramatic cello and violin arrangements. Andrea's innovative use of sounds, from cicadas to cement cutters, brings refreshing distinction to the hook-heavy folk rock tunes. Shannon O'Brien's masterful drumming adds inspired dynamics to Congress of Starlings' politically conscious songs. Their lyrics embrace animal and human rights, feminist and queer issues, historical tales and the occasional nightmare.
