If you scooped up those delicious Andrew Bird instrumental tracks as part of a deluxe bundle of 2009’s Noble Beast, good on you. If you didn’t, fear not.
Next week, ere Bird will release the 9-track Useless Creatures as a stand alone LP, and is so graciously making the rounds with a free have at of 7-minute tune “Hot Math”.
Taking influence from West African and Chinese isntrumentals, “Hot Math” is a meandering, gorgeous tune which, despite its subtly of nature, really claims some bravado.
The entire record is filled with some ambient, fast fingered, violin-driven diligence–and will be available starting 10/25.
