Big Awesome – Birdfeeder 7″ Available For Pre-Order
Big Awesome self-released Birdfeeder online earlier this year and now the EP is being given a proper release via Baby Moon Records on 7″ vinyl. Pre-Orders are now live and vinyl will be shipping in December. There are a limited number of transparent orange and coke bottle clear records. The first 60 orders will receive colored vinyl. Your pre-order comes with an instant digital download of the EP. Falling somewhere awesomely between Algernon Cadwallader, Minus The Bear and Samiam, Big Awesome’s brand of punk infused emo rock stands out as completely memorable in an oversaturated genre.
The good folks at If You Make It featured Big Awesome’s Birdfeeder in their albums section. You can download it for free (donations encouraged!) HERE. If You Make It had this to say about Birdfeeder: “It’s the perfect record for a beautiful fall and helps fill the void created by Algernon Cadwallader’s recent demise.”

Big Awesome’s smooth, melodic layers and delicate sense of dynamics verify that technical control can evoke more meaningful emotion than animalistic abandon. And on Birdfeeder, the band’s self-released four-song EP, they demonstrate this with a dexterity that is both obvious and difficult to define. In a genre that capitalizes on harsh, startling aesthetics to express itself, Big Awesome makes music that combines power with finesse. No, it’s not necessarily as loud, but Birdfeeder feels denser and more memorable, more dynamic and meticulous, and captures more accurately the complex nature of emotion. Sure, those harsher songs may allow the listener to express something primitive; Big Awesome’s songs summon the same, but add to it something more cerebral, making these songs, perhaps, even more human than the most barbaric tracks.
