I’m very happy to announce immediate availability of the newest Catbird Records release; it’s Brooklyn’s Forest Fire, returning with their full-length follow-up to last year’s sold-out Psychic Love Star EP.

Forest Fire have a number of new players on the album, including fellow Brooklynite Sharon Van Etten, and Portland’s Nathan Delffs (Castanets, Shaky Hands). FF still have that old ramshackle, carefree flavor, but the new blood has really helped enrich their sound. Here are my 3 favorite tracks from Survival; “I Make Windows” is a great example of their new, fuller sound, “Slow Motion” is one of their classic live staples, and “Fortune Teller,” which we’ll call ‘the single,’ is, uh, ‘different:’

I know 3 tracks seems like a lot to give away on a new release, but listen up: the release model for Survival is different from anything Catbird’s done before.
- You can buy the CD for $5 from Catbird Records
- You can buy the album digitally from:
- You can stream and/or download the album from:
- And of course, you can also stream and/or download the album in its entirety directly from this Catbird Records page. You can even “Pay What You Want” there (but we both know you’re not going to)
Oh, P.S.– there was one more format that Survival was available in: the newest Catbird creation, the “Giant-Size” CD:
This is a CD with 12″ sleeve and giclee print cover insert (archival inks on 310gsm German etching stock), in limited-edition of 20, for $15.But don’t get too excited, because these sold out in a matter of minutes. This is exactly why you should sign up for the Mailing List, people.
