CD Review: Rusty Willoughby “Cobirds Unite”

Remember when listening to music turned into your own personal soundtrack? Well, Cobirds Unite, born from a collaboration between Rusty Willoughby and Rachel Flotard, would be the perfect soundtrack for a road movie. Fresh off of her album with Visqueen, Rachel Flotard is at it again. The union has spawned an album of clouds and imagination that is perfect for travelers, dreamers and all-around music lovers.

This album is chock-full of goodies. From the swampy guitar on “Cobirds Unite” to the melodic strumming on “Crown of Thorns,” there is something for every person and every mood. The folky melodies are perfectly complemented by Flotard’s harmonies, giving the whole album a float-y, dream-like quality.
