Product Notes

The Doomed Bird of Providence's third album Burrowed Into The Soft Sky follows the acclaimed Will Ever Pray (2011) and Blind Mouths Eat (2013). On this occasion, they have discarded Mark Kluzek's vocals in favor of two twenty-minute instrumentals that continue Kluzek's obsessive and singular foray into early colonial history, while also being a significant departure in terms of approach. The underlying themes for each track are contrasting yet tie together via their historical context; a period where indigenous Australian belief systems and day-to-day lives were irrevocably assaulted. The song "Burrowed Into The Soft Sky" is based on a passage from Patrick White's novel Voss (1957). The book is very loosely based on the final journey through the northern regions of Australia by explorer Ludwig Leichardt. Kluzek took a passage from the book where a comet passes over and Voss, his team, and a tribe of Australian Aboriginals engage with and interpret the experience until it is "burrowed into the soft sky". "The Blood Dimmed Tide Is Loosed" takes a significantly darker turn, shining a light on a pattern of atrocity that took place in the north east of Australia at a time where a dynamic of back-and-forth, invariably initiated by colonists, took place, culminating in a "dispersal" of a tribe.
