Biography

The Lord Dog Bird is the solo recording project of Colin McCann, guitarist for Jagjaguwar artists, Wilderness. While the band was on extended hiatus, McCann kept at it, documenting his feelings about life and music at home on his four track. The result is a gritty, tactile document of a time spent in self-exploration and flux.

Through droning repetition and the unmistakable hiss and clip of four track cassette, a warm and engrossing atmosphere develops. These songs are buoyed by melodies that are at once sad and hopeful. The listener is immediately drawn in by their intimacy and honesty, with vocals imparting a sincerity and intensity that often borders on vulnerability.

While The Lord Dog Bird draws it’s influences from a distinct set of predecessors, music itself seems to be it’s main inspiration; a human attempt at honoring beauty; a music to help bring about healing and to celebrate change.

    If Wilderness are done, then I hope Colin McCann puts another Lord Dog Bird album soon. New albums by both would be best!

    I'm surprised I haven't heard "March to the Mountain" in a movie yet. Very dramatic and stirring song.

    His voice sorta borders on Bon-Iver-y flaccid indie songster territory that I absolutely loathe and avoid like the plague....BUT HAVING SAID THAT the songs are really beautiful and the entire record has such a distinct atmosphere. I like what he does with the guitars.

    I love his voice and how it breaks ever so slightly when he gets loud. Gives me chills.

    a year later and this album still has its hooks in me. March to the Mountain gets me everytime.

    VVVVVVVVVV.. it got a 5.0 on pitchfork and they kind of poo-poo'd the album. But really, who takes pitchfork seriously anyway. They are just a bunch of ignorant snobs.VVVVVVVVVVVV
