The Arthur King Presents series has another release under its belt, this time from prolific experimental artist Bill Baird. Called Owl, the new record is Baird’s third this year alone, having released dozens of others in his nearly two decades as an active musician. The ten new tracks ruminate on—what else?—owls. Sometimes the title is a dead giveaway (track six, ‘Strigidae’, for example, is the Family classification for True owls) while the lyrics may point you in the right direction.
