The Friday Thing: Tenuousness by Andrew Bird

From the Basement is a fantasic show shot by Nigel Godrich where they take a band and have them perform with no audience. Recently, I've been getting into Andrew Bird, so I decided to watch his set from the episode he was in. He is a one man show-he loops his violin, he whistles, plucks a guitar, and sings-and words cannot properly describe how beautiful the violin looping is. There are so many layers that are perfectly placed together. Andrew Bird is a genius, and if you didn't know that, watch this performance of "Tenuousness"-you'll understand!
