Birdcloud is Jasmin Kaset and Makenzie Green, a pair who met in a place called  Murfreesboro and who, since 2009, have used things like booze and sacrilege to make very modern country music. The duo write songs about what Sarah Palin deemed the real America, that unsung republic of countrified interstices stretching from coast to coast between cities. Kaset and Greens America is a nation of indulgent reprobates and boastful imbeciles, laughing maniacs and horny high school dropouts the desperate, absurd place we all inhabit in one way or another. The bands music is the ravenous id of todays commercial country sound, and in place of the pandering and polished banality of Nashvilles Music Row is a savagely honest depiction of real Americans, where a teenage evangelical designates her vagina (alone among her orifices) to Christ; a Desert Storm veteran dispenses ancient wisdom while driving drunk and toppling birdbaths in the suburbs; a coked up blackout drunk on a spree fellates a rodeo clown and tells her friends children that Santa doesnt exist. These characters are characters in both senses of the word: 1) eccentrics with notoriously outsized personalities, as well as 2) complex three-dimensional literary creations. The complicated sensation of listening to Birdclouds musicthe simultaneous urge to laugh, vomit, and maybe break down and cry a little at how familiar and sad and true it all ishas won the band fans across the lower 48, stupefying and sickening audiences in equal measure.

Boasting a strong YouTube presence, Birdclouds un-unseeable videos resonate beyond the continental U.S., with a slew of fan-versions of songs available online as well as an odd amount of unauthorized re-releases of official Birdcloud videos with Russian subtitles.  Birdclouds third and darkest EP was released in spring of 2014, and their follow-up record launched in the summer of 2015.
