STREAM: Andrew Bird - Eyeoneye
Hyper-melodic, orchestral, innovative, experimental, indie and emotional, Andrew Bird is all those things to different people, and he's back with a new record, Break It Yourself, set for March 6 on Mom + Pop. "Eyeoneye" is more than enough to whet your proverbial whistle (gross sentence, I know). With its sharp turns and pointed scoring, this one could have gone in a different, more difficult direction, but Bird puts songcraft first to create a pop number filled with fluid beauty. It feels, like, alive.
