Andrew Bird released this Soldier On EP last year and I guess it was supposed to just be a European release but they came to their senses and realized that was just silly. It has some remixes and early versions of songs from his amazing Armchair Apocrypha and it also has a special cover of Bob Dylan’s, Oh Sister (which is fantastic by the way)
I am enjoying it indeed…I didn’t however enjoy this Monday, felt like I could have really used another day off…Was it just me?

    Not bad music at all; the first song mellowed me down a bit after a hectic day, the second song sent me to the sofa, totally horizontal.

    Weekends are never long enough when you really need them to be, so I just resort to altering calendars ;)

    I hope you are feeling better; you’ve had a rough couple of weeks it seems.

    LOL “totally horizontal” That was pretty funny!
    Thanks Chris I am feeling better, although this cold has kicked my ass it is starting to subside finally. ;-)

    Haven’t been here for awhile, so hello everyone. Bird sounds good at the first glance. I can’t afford horizontal now though, i’m scribbling my thesis. Thanks for the music.

    hehe Piotr it is nice to see you again and I am glad you stopped in for a little Andrew Bird love. :-) Good luck on the thesis.
