Andrew Bird takes you through some kind of whimsical dream with his latest album Break It Yourself. Filled with gorgeous lyrics, amazing harmonies, and of course, Andrew’s signature whistling, this LP is perfect lie-in-the-grass-all-day-eyes-closed-smiling-wide music. His killer violin skillage and soft melodies mask the serious world issues Andrew sings about – it’s almost easy to skip out on the complexity of his whole album. So pay attention. Basically, Andrew bird is the indie folk indie folk Jack Johnson. Except way better. Because I don’t really like Jack Johnson. The only reason for the comparison is cause he’s just so damn good at indie folk tunes swirled with all sorts of beautiful instruments – and Jack Johnson is just so good at uber chill hawaiian lifestyle-inspired tuneage. I digress. I just really love Break It Yourself.
Favorite track: Danse Carribe – It makes me feel like I’m dancing drunkenly while wearing a coconut bra on a sandy beach. I love that.
