Five Questions with Birds of Avalon

Five Questions with Birds of Avalon

I’m not even going to try and explain the artistic philosophies behind Birds of Avalon’s latest, “Uncanny Valley.” If you want to know all about the robot theory that inspired the album’s title, go here  or, better yet, here. Or, perhaps most appropriately, put some headphones on (not ear buds, dammit, actual headphones), close your eyes, crank it up and absorb. Then get ready to watch BOA take everyone in the Pour House to Uncanny Valley during this Saturday’s CD-release party. Bass player Dave Mueller answered five questions about the new CD and the band’s on-the-road dining habits for New Raleigh.
