One Thousand Bird Ceremony
Released: Mar 2004
Label: Soft Abuse
Compared to subsequent releases, 2004's One Thousand Bird Ceremony feels a bit thin. That's because San Francisco's Skygreen Leopards were yet to grow into a full ensemble; they were just the duo of Glenn Donaldson and Donovan Quinn when recording this plaintive, pastoral, and often hypnotically stoned collection of California pop. Ceremony unfolds less like a sequence of discrete tracks and more like one, long interrupted high, which kinda means it's like Lou Reed, Nick Drake, and Mickey Dolenz jamming together in Big Sur.
