Andrew Bird – See The Enemy

I guess it’s pretty criminal of me but I never really listened to Andrew Bird until recently. I stumbled across this song and was like “Woah! This is great, is this what I have been missing from Andrew all these years?” Well, the answer is no. I picked up his latest, Noble Beast, and there is nothing as fresh as “See The Enemy.” It’s pleasant music, no doubt, but not something I find myself needing to listen to. “See The Enemy,” however, is totally up my alley. A little more pep, some fun word play, epic strings, mention of troglobites, what else does a man need? It comes from the Fitz and Dizzyspells EP in which Bird includes a some b-sides and a few reworkings, like this one, of Noble Beast‘s “Anonanimal.” I’ll give Bird’s stuff a few more listens to see if it grows on me but this song is so great I’m hapy letting it represesnt him in my book.

    I agree completely. I keep trying to give him a try, but I always wish there was a little more pep. This song and “Heretics” are my idea of my own Andrew Bird and no one can tell me otherwise.

    If you’re looking for pep in Andrew bird you should go further back! “Skin Is, My” or ‘Imitosis.” Even further back: “Vidalia” or “Core and rind.” The Fourtet remix of Imitosis is pretty good to.
