As their name suggests, Breathe Owl Breathe give a lot of consideration to our animal friends, both real (parrots, lions) and imagined (dragons). So it makes perfect sense that frontman Micah Middaugh has written and illustrated (with woodcuts, naturally) a children's book to accompany their new 7-inch "The Listeners/These Train Tracks." But don't let the innocence fool you. This is not your typical indie-pop trio: Andréa Moreno-Beals plays cello at the same time that she weaves operatic vocals over the top of catchy pop melodies and Middaugh's sincere, deadpan lyrics. Breathe Owl Breathe's whimsical lyrics and eccentric stage personas may alienate the more cynically minded, but you get the feeling that they're too preoccupied with crafting sophisticated music to care.
