The Friday Thing: Spare-ohs by Andrew Bird

It's less than 20 minutes of this Friday but here we go: One day, I decided to look up Andrew Bird. Like many bands and singers I read about on various music blogs, I knew nothing about him. So, I went to La Blogotheque, and what do you know, he had a take-away show. Entitled 'Spare-ohs', this song is amazing. The whistling is done with such finesse, and his monotone-ish singing fits the tone perfectly. I am a sucker for folky type things, but I have a feeling he has more great stuff yet for me to find. Enjoy!

He kind of sounds like Bob Dylan, but with crazy vibrato and whistles that sound like they'd come from a...(wait for it)...bird!

Arnie: Yeah, he does. And dir, the song's called 'Spare-oh's' (sparrows) and his name is Bird. He's one clever man.
