Jon Rooney is the CEO of one-man band Virgin of the Birds, a lo-fi project that is all about the song. The new full-length Winter Seeds is the culmination of his wanderings through the treasure troves of art rock, folk and of course Big Star, Nick Drake and Elliot Smith.
Rooney is a craftsman who knows that you need to polish things but that you need to keep a few rough spots as well. This collection of exquisite chamber-pop songs whispers softly "must have". Winter Seeds is a 101 for DIY musicianship. Resistance is futile.
