The Mynabirds - Generals (2012)

In place of the Zen meditations found on The Mynabirds’ first album, "GENERALS" is filled with armies of stomps and claps, sweeping full spectrum orchestrations, and moments that range from intensely personal pleas to shout-out-loud protests with teeth.

GENERALS is both a protest record and concept album. It’s fueled by a full decade of Burhenn’s political frustration and aimed at finding a revolutionary yet pacifist way in a world where, these days, it seems warring comes quick. Lyrically, GENERALS sings the voice of the collective frustration, then moves beyond that. 

The album’s name comes from a Richard Avedon photo entitled “Generals of the Daughters of the American Revolution.” The lineage of women that have stood up to injustice for well over a hundred years, women like Sojourner Truth, Rosa Parks, Gloria Steinem, Naomi Wolf, they get their hands dirty. And Burhenn wanted to pay tribute to that.

In conjunction with the release of the album, Burhenn is launching a portrait project called The New Revolutionists ( In an election year when so much time, energy and money will be spent on political contests, Burhenn wanted to shine a light on women making a difference, often on shoestring or even nonexistent budgets, in their own communities all over America, whether they’re making headlines or not.
