Lee Lucas Hymns for the Careless is a cracking debut album by the Tiny Birds. It's very much an album that contains 8 well written songs with a great sense of humour along its path in the lyrical department, and very well put across with fine vocals and marvellous instrumentation. Its perhaps more like an EP these days over its playing time of 24 and half minutes, but never the less at a price of buy now and name your price it's very worthy of getting. Give tracks 2,5 & 7 a blast I highly recommend this. Favorite track: Decisions.

Hymns for the Careless – the fantastic debut album from Tiny Birds – splices indie-folk sounds with classic pop songwriting. Its eight tracks are short, sweet and relentlessly endearing, suggestive of good indie stock like Hefner, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, The Wave Pictures and Port O’Brien. Previously dubbed ‘sad songs with happy music’, Tiny Birds never so much as set foot in a minor key, but their smatterings of ukulele and thick daubs of techicolour banjo nestle alongside lyrics of nostalgia and regret. The album winds a lyrical course from the beaches of Norfolk to the playgrounds of London, taking in ancient Greece and Renaissance Venice on the way. If you like simple pop melodies and complex folk arrangements then you’ll love this. The cold-hearted need not apply.
