Active Bird Community 

Usually when you visit a band's website, the first page is one giant ad for its latest album, offering up full-screen music videos and easy-click tracks. But Brooklyn-based "slacker rock" group Active Bird Community is different. Though its new album, Amends (Barsuk Records, 2018), dropped just last month, ABC's page opens with a block of text: an impassioned letter from lead vocalist Tom D'Agustino explaining the album and its importance to the band. "To be honest, I'm pretty nervous about putting this out into the world, finally," D'Agustino writes, before going to to assure readers that his band actually "gives a s***" about the songs they've written. ABC's members have been playing together since they were 11 years old, giving them the license to do things a bit differently—a promise born out in their indie-meets-grunge tracks. Packed with quirks at every turn, the honesty of Amends isn't to be underestimated.
