Music Geek Track Of The Day: ‘Tin Foiled’ by Andrew Bird
By Becca Gleason on June 5, 2014
Andrew Bird released a new album this week (yay) and announced his new tour (double yay). His album, Things Are Really Great Here, Sort Of…, is not your typical album, dear nerds. It’s comprised entirely of by the folk duo, The Handsome Family, recently famous for their 2003 song, “Far From Any Road,” the True Detective theme song. Bird is famous for his one-man-band + a drummer format. He’s able to loop songs with ease, making you feel like you’re listening to a giant orchestra when it’s really just two dudes, having a good time, rockin’ out.
“Tin Foiled,” is available to stream and it’s the perfect dose of Andrew Bird we’ve all been waiting for. Bird and his band are calling themselves Andrew Bird & the Hands of Glory and will be traveling the country this summer.
