Take a look after the jump.
In a moody follow-up to 2010’s critically acclaimed What We Lose in the Fire We Gain in the Flood, The Mynabirds‘ sophomore release, Generals, is a call for change in uncertain times. Presiding as wolf mother of love over an album of bossy hand claps and drums, singer/songwriter Laura Burhenn traces the arch of revolution from frustration to action, showing empathy to be the most revolutionary of ideals.
Before opening for Conor Oberst in a stripped down solo performance this Sunday (September 23) at the Capitol Theater (tickets here), True Endeavors talked to Burhenn about her first outing without a band, love, cynicism, and recurring dreams.

We’re majorly excited about Conor Oberst‘s Capitol Theater show this Sunday night (September 23) and have been trying to fill our ears with a heavy dose of tunes by the Bright Eyes frontman as the concert draws near.
Though Oberst himself ranks among the world’s best living songwriters, it’s also fun to hear his take on other artists’ work, which led us to this NPR interview where he gives tribute to another one of the greats: Leonard Cohen.
