Bird a.k.a. the musical wonderkid Tim Crane is the gravel-voiced
front-man of criminally underexposed Texan heavy funk and soul
BIRD & THE BREAKS who released their debut album "Learn
About it" in 2009. The band have dropped a number of
breaks-heavy funk nuggets since itīs release and now "T Bird Is
Good For You" sees Crane stepping out on his own.
Given that hes a man who loves his hip-hop as much as his funk
and soul, its no surprise that Crane ends up at the place where
G Love, The Beastie Boys and indeed his own band intersect. The
album is a walk through the garden of P-Funk, Oldschool Hip-Hop,
Dr.Johnīs Voodooed landscapes as well as Gospel Hymns and
Soul/Garage 60īs style.
All in all itīs a fantastic album rooted in the whole American
Music Underground culture from the 50īs and up to this day. An
evergoing party. Itīs good for you.
