Andrew Bird may not be human

SXSW09_Andrew_Bird@ZackTeibloom I’m convinced Andrew Bird is the descendant of a bird. I’m not saying his mom or dad had wings, but a couple generations ago … there was some bird in there. Maybe his great grandad had a beak. Human beings just don’t have wind instruments like he possesses.

His whistling is as versatile an instrument as he has in his already impressive arsenal. His immense control over it, the range, the power of it. The first time I saw him, I wasn’t in the line of sight and assumed he had to have an instrument other than his mouth to make those sounds.

You’d be foolish to take your eyes off Bird in a performance. He seamlessly moves from strumming a guitar to whistling those majestic bird sounds to striking a xylophone to picking a violin, often all in the same song.

He had Stubbs far more into his performance than The Decemberists had the night before. Bird also wins the award for best stage set-up of the festival. His over-sized gold phonographs framed him elegantly as a double-ended silver phonograph spun to a whirring sound. The whirring sound was coming from the phonograph, but it just as easily could have been the audiences head’s spinning. 9.1/10
