"Alone to themselves, Bird Names has been singing a strange sweet song for four years. The song tells about the horror and wonder of truth in an acid-scrambled brogue pieced together from old pop and country music. In their singing they celebrate the honesty of the grotesque, the spirituality of ambiguity, the joy of singing. With Bird Names Sings the Browns, the group's fifth album (following a 10" EP and April 2008's Open Relationship), Bird Names has made a statement of their artistic resolve and capacity. It is a moody pop album scribbled in loose, intuitive musicianship, kissed with love and friendship, built by the power of radical unconscious play. The band produced the album themselves (as they have most Bird Names albums), engaging their 1/2" tape studio with the amateur's imagination, inspiration and crudity. Sings the Browns is folk in its frankness, privacy, melancholy; psychedelic in its conjuring the displacement of drug experience; pop in its melody, stickiness, demand of obsessive listening."
