Go Listen to Andrew Bird . . . Now!

Well ladies and gentlemen, I’ve run into my first must-hear album of the year. It’s Andrew Bird’s new one, and it’s called “The Mysterious Production of Eggs.”

As with most albums I really like, I can’t give a good description of it. But you can check out a track for yourself. Go ahead and download “A Nervous Tic Motion of the Head to the Left” or check out Andrew Bird’s “listen” page to hear some more stuff.

UPDATE: You can go to his label’s site (Righteous Babe) and listen to a streaming version of the entire album. Isn’t indie swell?
