Not a very awe-inspiring name or one that necessarily makes you want to explore further. But you have to take MY word for it. These guys are good. Mighty damn good. One of those bands that their whole album is good, not just a few songs. All in the neofolk vein. Think: good melodies, good harmonies, good acoustics.
Now. Go forth and multiply, er, um, explore! You can hear them at all three of the links I've included below.

Bowerbirds are Beth Tacular, Phil Moore and Mark Paulson from North Carolina. They make leafy folk-pop with guitars, accordions and violins.
Their first full length album, Hymns for a Dark Horse, was released in Spring 2007 on Burly Time Records. Their fluent, characteristic style, marked by wonderfully skilled songcraft and bucolic imagery, has since earned them several positive reviews.
Their latest album, Upper Air, was released July 7, 2009 on Dead Oceans.
It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com.
I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed.
Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
