The Mynabirds – What We Lost in the Fire We Gain in the Flood

The Mynabirds – What We Lost in the Fire We Gain in the Flood

Essentially a solo album from Laura Burhenn of Washington, D.C.; this is a folk album with a lot of soul.  Chan Marshall, Johnette Napolitano and Chrissie Hynde are all obvious influences…but she takes these sounds and makes something all her own.
