Episode 46 : Andrew Bird

This week we have an interview with the music world's foremost whistler, Andrew Bird. Even just listening to his recordings, it's clear that Bird has been playing violin since four years of age. But his music is so much more than impeccable technique—and his brand new record, My Finest Work Yet, taps into a vibrant, labyrinthine inner world of heady emotion, obscure reference, and brilliant songwriting. Host Lior Phillips and Bird work through his elaborate career—his first performances, seeing Japanese noise rockers Boredoms as his first concert, his time with the Squirrel Nut Zippers, and all the way up through to his latest release. Plus, just two days out from My Finest Work Yet, we've got an early taste of the record in the form of the dazzling "Sisyphus".
