The release of ‘The Crooked Mile’, sees Birdengine produce his first full length album. 10 exceptional songs that take the   listener on a remarkable journey. From strange lands to bizarre   outsider characters, drowning monsters and villages swallowed by the   ground. Tilbury’s beautiful and somewhat strange vocals enhance the   eerie, unsettling quality of the songs. The medley of instruments   employed on the record are almost exclusively, with the exception of the   drums, played by Tilbury himself. Abandoning the hushed, purposefully   plucked guitar of it’s predecessor mini-album ‘I Fed Thee Rabbit  Water’,  ‘The Crooked Mile’ sees him encompass a much fuller, larger  sound with  lo-fi noise, spanish guitar, accordion, organ, double bass  and a whole  plethora of noise based harmony.
The  album was recorded at The Well  Studios in Hove, Sussex using completely  analogue equipment and  recorded to half inch tape by producer David  Ringland. Drummers Tom  Marsh (of Brighton based lofi pop outifit ‘The  Robot Heart’) and Danny  Green (of folksters LAISH) lend their skills to  tracks ‘Phantom Limb’,  ‘The Experiments Of Dr Sarconi’ and ‘No Arms And  No Friends’. 
Tilbury  has said of the album; “I wanted  to move away from the rougher, quieter  sound of my early work, keeping  the experimental noise and melancholy  melodies, but transposed to a  full band sound. There are still some  quieter moments on the album, ‘I,  dancing bear’ for example, the first  song I wrote for the LP, has a  softer sound and ‘Ghost Club’ has strong  echos of my earlier work, but  tracks like ‘Phantom Limb’ are a real  departure from what I was doing  with ‘I Fed Thee Rabbit Water’. This  album tries to engage with the  idea of not belonging to society and the  senses of alienation that  accompany feeling as though you are an  outsider.’
Birdengine  is Lawry Joseph Tilbury,  whose unique music has been described by The  Independent as ‘beautiful,  backwards weirdness’ and by WARP Records as  “an unknown supernatural  force”. Despite every new  recording heralding a marked shift in  style and delivery, his unique  ‘birdengine’ sound always remains  identifiable. Having released two EP’s  of early experimental work on  benbecula records, described by Stylus  as, ‘The first relevant work of  freak folktronica’, he then went on to  produce his mini-album ‘I fed  Thee Rabbit Water’ described by The  Independent as ‘a 25 minute  pastoral masterpiece’.
