Andrew Bird has been a favorite of mine for quite some time now, though I have no idea what got me started on his music. His style is incredibly dynamic and evocative. I adore the emotion behind his music.
I randomly came across a breathtaking performance featuring him with Annie Clark (St. Vincent). It’s what seems to be an impromptu jam session type of concert recorded in a Parisian hotel room in April of 2009. Not only is the music fantastic (of course) but the video was beautifully filmed. About half way through, Annie Clark steps in… and her voice somehow reminds me of butterflies. Anyway, watch it here.
