Andrew Bird...

Here's a quirky singer songwriter for you. Andrew Bird writes what I describe as dense, meticulously crafted songs. They're lyrically very strong and deep. You've gotta listen close. His choice of instrumentation is always a little off beat but the songs shine, they really do. He's preparing to release a new record in February called The Mysterious Production of Eggs, which is as much as anything else an indication of his skewed world view. Not skewed in a bad way, like deranged, but skewed in the sense that he sees things differently, processes them differently and comes back with songs that sound just a little off kilter though hardly unpalatable. The more I listen the more I like, always a good sign.
