Stream: Andrew Bird

    Without having ever seen him perform, I am sure Andrew Bird is a talented experimentalist. This live rendition of near-perfect track "Tables and Chairs" imprints delicately on the mind. While listening I have the craving to watch him on the stage, as a true maestro of his instrumentation. His violin takes top billing, the swells both heartbreaking, poignant, and uplifting. "Tables and Chairs" is never the same twice. Especially in a concert setting, it fills an imagined space with pauses and crunchy electric guitar that surprises even if you've heard it countless times. Each instrument places a different shadow. Andrew Bird is an exponentially rare talent; he astounds and learns something new about himself and his abilities in the thick of crafting an experience.
