Andrew Bird

Andrew Bird’s Armchair Apocrypha is one of the most highly-anticipated albums of 2007. Isn’t that enough, doesn’t that make you want to listen to his songs already? Doesn’t that make you curious to know who the hell is Andrew fucking Bird?

Well, it sure did for me.

With his latest album just released in March this year, some claim that it’s the best record by Bird to date. Accompanying his album are tunes like ‘Heretics’ and ‘Armchairs’ which really sees his skills in the usage of a range of instruments such as the violin and glockenspiels. The music he writes are complex and sophisticated yet never lacks to exude the true emotion of the lyrics. When I say complex, I mean it in a way when you compare it to music by other musicians like Damien Rice.

Here are a few songs of the superb record, Armchair Apocrypha.
