Armchair Apocrypha: Andrew Bird

When Maggie and I went to see The Magnetic Fields at The Old Town School Of Folk Music the opening act was some guy named Andrew Bird. So this skinny guy in an old thrift store suit walks out and starts playing the violin, recording it, then playing it back while playing a saw, recording that, then playing them back together and then he starts whistling and so on and on. But this was no novelty act, this guy was just simply amazing. So I got his new album Armchair Apocrypha.

Amazing! Here's one of my favorites: Imitosis. And yes, that word is an A. Bird original!

Here's another song from the new CD: Spare-Ohs
