Meredith Bragg's "Nest" cover art

Unlike the mother birds that push their young from nests, Virginia native Meredith Bragg is trying to draw you into his. Bragg’s fourth album, Nest, is due out July 19th.

Entertainment Weekly, Magnet and SPIN give the man rave reviews, but you can be the judge of that. Download his first single, “Birds of North America”.

Warning: songs on the album have themes of parenthood (Bragg recently became a father), pulls inspiration from things such as Renaissance architecture and John James Audubon and expands from his sophomoric single-guitar routine to a menagerie of different instruments.

In other words, if you don’t like delicate, orchestral or new sounds…well, you probably shouldn’t be listening to indie music.
