Fast, dark, gypsy-styled folk punk from Santa Cruz, CA. Earlier, I compared Hail Seizures to this band. Apparently Blackbird Raum is often seen busking in their hometown - I wish we had buskers this amazing where I live, because I'd probably spend a lot of time on the street watching them. Accordion, washboard, washtub bass, banjo, singing saw, screaming! They definitely have their own sound going on here, and they sound like they're having incredible fun doing it.
