Originally known as Boy Without God, Gabriel Birnbaum’s eccentric indie folk project, Wilder Maker, is full of enough noise and passion to live up to the new name. With the help of a large cast of friends and acquaintances, Birnbaum makes each song a journey, weaving a story through bursts of noise and varied riffs and time changes, with plenty of room to live and breath. Then there are pop songs — well, they’re all pop songs, really, but these tight little nuggets have horns that stab in all the right places, just daring you to dance, and maybe even get a little wild.
Featured song: “Float Us Through The Barroom”
