Andrew Bird - Break It Yourself

A veritable treasure trove of a record,
Andrew Bird - Break It Yourself
With ‘Break it Yourself’, Andrew Bird is taking his first steps out into the sunshine. His last album peaked at number twelve in the Billboard Chart across the pond, where he looks likely to attract some attention with this album. This is clear to those who have witnessed the bright, drive time friendliness of ‘Near Death Experience’ or the tender balladry of ‘Lusitania’, on which Annie Clark, AKA St Vincent, features as a guest vocalist. A cornucopia of ideas and influences, here, Andrew Bird has created a veritable treasure trove of a record, where to equal the bare sum of its parts is a momentous achievement.
