The Doomed Bird of Providence

"An accordion driven exploration of sinister histories, Doomed Bird of Providence bemoans the fate of those whose names and fates have gone on to form folk legends; from the red barn murders, to the first European to hang themselves in Australia, there is no crevice too dark for this mans intense lyrical vocabulary to expose.
