Weekly updates from BLDG 25


have you guys heard of birdie busch? she’s a philly native whose atmospheric folk music and whimsical voice are starting to gain wider recognition.  her myspace page describes her music as “weird and winding: she sings about magic, luck, the universe, the human heart speeding off on dangerous missions like Inspector Gadget. An intimate partnership with long time band mates has assured that her records are cohesive and remarkably mature, a dreamy Americana too warm to be made in this decade but too grounded and aware to be made anytime else.”

she has just released an EP of four songs inspired by her hometown (philadelphia) called “everyone will take you in” and our music coordinator gave me a copy last week. i was immediately intrigued by the packaging alone, it’s really lovely. it includes vinyl and cd versions of the EP as well as a stack of vintage looking postcards with song lyrics on the back and a letter from birdie explaining the meaning of this project. i wanted to share some photos just because i thought it was so nice!










she’ll be playing at johnny brenda’s in philly this friday so if you’re in the area stop by and check her out! here are a couple of her songs, check out her myspace page for more!

I didn’t realize Free People promoted music. I’ve been a long-time fan of Free People, AND of Birdie Busch, so this is a match made in heaven. Seriously, she’s one of my favorite singer-songwriters alive. I caught a show at a lovely old blue church-turned-house-and-venue in Santa Rosa with The Spindles. Go Birdie!
