It was time, Andrew, and it didn’t disappoint.
Andrew Bird’s latest album Break it Yourself released this week. A notable departure from the more up-beat and lighter 2009 Noble Beast, Break It Yourself is rich, complex, a return to Andrew’s more thoughtful, reflective (even pensive?) lyrics–woven beautifully with imagery, “holes in the ocean floor,” questions of time, memory, history.
Yes, all of this–with a whistle.
Paired with a rainy day or heavy cloud-covered skies, you’ll be ready to wander the landscape of Andrew Bird’s world, thankful.
