I was listening to WKSU NPR today and they were interviewing Andrew Bird. His new album, ARE YOU SERIOUS with Fiona Apple just came out. I'd never heard of him and I can't say I liked all of his singing, but it grew on me. I loved Chemical Switches. He played it live with whistling (which he is unbelievable at doing) and plucked violin (which he is also unbelievable at doing). The sound was so amazing that if I buy it, I'm going to be furious if it's not the same. Bird voiced "The Whistling Caruso" in THE MUPPET MOVIE. You won't believe someone can actually whistle what he did. And if you think whistling in sappy, he'll change that feeling forever.
