(2011) This is the solo debut from the lead singer and songstress of The Ragbirds, and it is a real departure from the percussive upbeat sound of Zindle’s band. It’s an 8-song journal of a feathered traveler. The songs are private moments scooped up with two small hands and spread out in layers of strings, voices, piano and words. Zindle, who is known for her creative energy and endless smiles, has taken the listener into a smaller quieter world where pain slips through the cracks and the raw edges are left to show. The songs speak of strange experiences, loss, internal wrestling, forgiveness, family, nature and despair. With the exception of a guest bassoon and bagpiper, all the instruments are performed by Erin herself. “Scenes From The Fragile Agile Avian World” is full of imagery and feminine musical textures without drums, bass and guitar.
