HIS DEBUT ALBUM, THE BIRD AND THE WORD, WILL BE RELEASED ON DREAMBOAT RECORDS IN JULY. AFTER AN APPRENTICESHIP ON THE BRISTOL SCENE IN BANDS SUCH AS KOYAANISQATSI AND AZALEA CITY PENIS CLUB, ALLENDER BEGAN TO RECORD HIS OWN MATERIAL IN 2004. A SUCCESSFUL SELF-RELEASED DEMO, A GROWING LIVE REPUTATION AND AN ONLINE BUZZ BROUGHT HIM TO THE STUDIO IN 2006 AND 2007, WHERE HE PUT TOGETHER HIS DEBUT ALBUM. THE BIRD AND THE WORD IS EXPERIMENTAL FOLK, WITH HUSHED VOCALS, UNUSUAL POP ARRANGEMENTS AND THE SLIGHTEST HINT OF PERCUSSION AND OTHER INSTRUMENTS. ALLENDER PERFORMS BOTH ALONE AND WITH HIS NEW BAND: ALEX WILKINS (GUITAR), SAM TARBUCK (BASS) AND DAVE COLLINGWOOD OF GRAVENHURST (DRUMS). HE IS ALREADY WORKING ON A RECORD WITH HIS FULL BAND.
