RIYL: Beirut

Label: Loma Vista

I whistle all the time. Part of this is because I didn’t use to be able to whistle at all and then one day I read an interview with Andrew Bird. The interviewer asked him if he whistles nonstop and he said, “Constantly, event when I’m eating.” I took that advice to heart, and I am always amazed when someone recognizes the tune that I am whistling(often it’s John Cena’s theme music), because I honestly think of myself as a subpar whistler. “You could tell that’s what song I was whistling??” I respond excitedly.

I am a much better record collector than I am a whistler. And let me just tell you that Andrew Bird is back, and this album features Fiona motherfucking Apple and friggin Blake Mills!

The box set includes a book, the deluxe version of the album, a 7″ and a 10″ that is exclusive to the box. Get it. Get it now while the getting is good.
