Blynd Birds is a rock & ruin band from Austin, TX. Created by Jared Blair after years of playing loud indie-rock, the band is genre-bending, sharp-toothed, and honest. Their sound is familiar and atypical in tandem. The live show combines elements of local punk and blues.


The full album, FIND YOUR CONSCIENCE, BABY was recorded and produced in Austin, TX in an innovative way. All songs were recorded at Signal Hill Studios by Patrick Herzfeld and each song was sent to 8 of the top producers in town based on the sound of the song.


1. My My My - mixed by Stuart Sikes (Modest Mouse, White Stripes, Cat Power, etc)

2. Vice Veins - mixed by Jim Eno (Drummer for SPOON)

3. Not Gonna Stop - mixed by Mobley (current artist playing Lollapalooza)

4. State Line - mixed by Adam Odor (Ben Harper, Reckless Kelly, Court Yard Hounds)

5. Already Spent - mixed by “Good” Danny Reisch (Dana Falconberry, Black and White Years)
