“The Blue Jay’s Dream” is Bird People’s second LP on Dead Vox and the first vinyl release to document the project’s new, predominantly acoustic direction.
In the winter of 2014/2015 Rois and Roy Culbertson III (Burlin Mud, MAHTPA, Metal Mangs Orkaestra) started recording duo sessions of improvised, acoustic drone music using instruments like esraj, bowed banjo, mountain dulcimer, electric organ, oscillator, sruti box, fiddle and singing bowls. All the tracks on this album were recorded live in one room. No overdubs were used.
