I love the new EP from Andrew Bird. Actually Soldier On has 8 tracks and clocks in at over half an hour, so calling it an album wouldn’t be a huge stretch. Audio/Visual and Pitchfork have good words about it.
The Soldier On page at Andrew Bird’s site points out that the artwork is by the mighty Jay Ryan. That might is why I’ve include the artwork in this post, and why you might want to visit The Bird Machine.
But back to Andrew Bird and the music. Here’s “The Trees Were Mistaken.”
