Andrew Bird’s new album, Armchair Apocrypha hits record stands today…And my, my, my ladies and gentlemen I do believe Mr. Bird will steal your heart away. This 12 track album is composed in a way that only Mr. Bird could make. The album is a mix of cool jazz rhythms and classical melodies that are so refine, it is beautiful. Andrew Bird is quite honestly a singer songwriter who is in a class of his own.

Unfortunately the closest show of his is at Coachella 2007 in Indio, CA and well that sold out in like 2 minutes…So unless I find tickets to Coachella growing on some fabulous Coachella Ticket Tree or I take a road-trip to San Fran…I don’t think I will be able to catch him this time around, which is just a tragedy…Wouldn’t you agree? Enjoy!

Armchair Apocrypha 2007 Get it

Oh and check out the new Google Personalized Home Themes at the right hand top of your page…I am using the Sweet Dreams theme of course because I like Van Gogh think that the night is much more alive than the day…“I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.” Vincent Van Gogh

How was every one’s St. Patty’s day?

    Andrew Bird is magnificent and Cataracts is easily an early contender for song of the year. Btw, I got my Mouthful of Bees CD in the post today and I am loving it.

    Well, You could always make the six hour trek to Tucson and see Andrew play a general admission show at the Rialto on April 27th.

    MJRC, I think Lucinda’s “West” has been out for weeks…
