Andrew Bird : Noble Beast/Useless Creatures

'Noble Beast' is the fifth solo album by multi-instrumentalist (and expert whistler) Andrew Bird. Musical maturity is apparent with Bird's songs walking the line between expert craftsmanship and innocent playfulness and experimentation. Traditional influences of folk, blues and baroque grapple with a penchant for electronic techniques and repetition, culminating in confident and bold masterpieces that stand out from otherwise standand singer-songwriter fair. Coupled with the limited edition version of the album is the all instrumental 'Usless Creatures', which further explores Bird's sonic experiments over nine tracks.
