Hi there, sorry for not posting since Sub Pop Week. Hopefully, you have had enough time to listen through the mix. I’m going to keep this short, but just in case you live in a shell and didn’t hear, Andrew Bird’s new album, Armchair Apocrypha, came out yesterday. It is, by far, my favorite album of his to date. It is also going to be one of the best albums released this year. I discussed the album back in a January post when I first heard it and fell in love with it, but have since then fallen even more in love with it. If you want to stream the album, I’ve got the inside scoop of where you can hear it–AOL’s Spinner— scroll the albums at the top, and you’ll see it. Also, if you get a chance to check out his new site, it’s pretty neat. While you’re at it, he’s currently on tour so check out if he’s coming to a city near you–a friend was kind enough to get me a ticket for the Chicago show, so hopefully I’ll make it to see him.
Be sure to support Bird by purchasing this album. Listen out for tracks Simple X, Heretics, Plasticities, and Cataracts. All songs are great, but these are probably my four favorite. Have you guys heard the album yet? What are your thoughts? Favorite tracks?
