Andrew Bird, Hands of Glory
2012 | Label: Mom & Pop Music / The Orchard

Andrew Bird’s folky, jazzy brand of indie-rock is highly sophisticated – few artists have as much fun toying with song construction, and Bird’s lyrics have always been impossibly literate, reading like tongue-tied mazes of metaphor and sarcasm. But even at his most complex, this whistling violin virtuoso’s tunes have always felt a bit old-fashioned, out-of-step with those of his peers.

On Hands of Glory, a companion EP to this year’s Break it Yourself, Bird embraces this… read more »

25 Bands to See at Coachella 2012

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

There is every other music festival and then there is Coachella, the California-desert weekend that, in many ways, set the template for all that followed. The first U.S. festival to boast big-ticket reunions and all-over-the-map booking, Coachella continues to maintain its distinctive, idiosyncratic personality. Needless to say, navigating such a wide array of music can be tricky. We've picked 25 acts worth making time for. more »

Schizo-Pop! A Guide to Musicians and Their Alternate Personae

By Laura Studarus, Contributor

Whether it's on account of creativity bursting at the seams, or just a desire to try something musically or lyrically different from their previous work, sometimes artists feel the need to step outside themselves and create an entirely new persona. The syndrome that's kept psychologists busy for years has manifested itself in concept albums, live performances or just the occasional one-off single. Inspired by Nicki Minaj's sophomore album Roman Reloaded — where Minaj channels her… more »

Interview: Andrew Bird

By Rachael Maddux, Contributor

Six albums into his career, Andrew Bird has established himself as a man of certain habits - the whistling, the violin, the sock-footed live shows - stuff that'd seem like a heap of geeky gimmicks if they weren't executed so well. Classically trained from an early age, he seems nothing if not a lover of routine and control; even when he's warbling about the end of the world, it's with poise, grace and intelligence. But when… more »

New This Week: The Men, Jenny Scheinman & More

By J. Edward Keyes, Editor-in-Chief

New ones from The Men, Jenny Scheinman and more this week. Let's get to it. The Men, Open Your Heart: Here it is. People, if you only download one record today, make sure this is it. Big, loud, roaring rock & roll that ricochets between scuzzy garage, roughed-up punk and lovely, laid-back country with equal aplomb. Needless to say, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Here's eMusic's Austin L. Ray with more: The album is divided roughly into three categories: rockers… more »

Interview: Andrew Bird

By Amanda Petrusich, Contributor

Multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird works in layers, stacking sounds and rhythms, building lush, heavily-orchestrated pop songs. On Bird's fourth full-length release, Armchair Apocrypha, his classical background (Bird was trained as a violinist) matches wits with his curious eye, and the resulting tracks are rich and delightful, as concerned with melody as they are with mitosis. eMusic: Your tour went green. Can you talk a little bit about your decision to use biodiesel, eat organic food, and recycle? Andrew… more »
