And we’re back again with #9!
Continuing the trend of albums from 2012(as well as more of my Andrew Bird section), here we have his album “Break It Yourself”. Considered to be one of my top albums of the past year at the #2 spot(along with companion piece “Hands of Glory”), this album has a little bit of everything. The acoustic folk textures Bird is so well known for, the electric inclusions(as seen on “Armchair Apocrypha” only more squared down here), and more of that ever-brilliant violin playing of course. Throw in a guest spot from St Vincent on “Lusitania” and brilliant songs like “Lazy Projector”, “Eyeoneye”, “Give It Away”, “Hole In The Ocean Floor” and “Desperation Breeds”, and there’s still no reason to state any other thought but brilliance. And still one of the best that last year had to offer.
