Andrew Bird

Thinking back, I’m not sure if I’ve done a post about Andrew Bird…what a shame, considering the large part he plays in the core of my music library.

Anyway, I was just browsing through Vimeo and stumbled upon this little segment of  him performing “Plasticities” while roaming about Sydney Harbor in 2008.

One of my favorite things about Mr. Bird (besides his mad violin and whistling skills) is the fact that every performance of his is completely unique. At any of his live shows, you’re not paying money to hear something that sounds just like what you heard on his album, you’re in store for a surprise, a variation, if you will…

Here’s the video from Shoot the Player

Also, check out some other Shoot the Player videos on Vimeo. The just put together a video of Scottish band Frightened Rabbit playing one of my current favorite songs “Swim Until You Can’t See Land”. Make sure to hear to studio version of the song too, the acoustic arrangement is not quite as alive.
