New! Andrew Bird – "Effigy"


This is some new Bird from the upcoming Noble Beast, out January 20. I love Andrew Bird because he seems to be unconcerned with what’s cool, and that inadvertently makes him the coolest! He plays the violin, he whistles like the Bird he is, he writes almost overly intelligent lyrics, and he creates some really beautiful music. This will most likely be the last post I’ll do from Noble Beast, because I don’t want to spoil it. Check it out.
