Andrew Bird

Indie-pop sensation and avid whistler Andrew Bird is releasing his new album “Break it Yourself,” and his recently released single from it has received mixed reviews. In Bird’s previous albums, his voice rang loud and clear, his whistles were as sharp-edged as whistles may be, and violin and guitar sounded clean and polished. In his new album, however, Bird seems to be taking a different musical flight path (aha), and experimenting with a more raw sound. In the new single “Eyoneye”, Bird’s voice sounds more like it would if you were in the room with him – it’s got a raw edge to it, a front-porch flair. What’s for sure is that the former, younger Bird has left the nest. I guess we’ll find out on March 6 how this paid off.
