Andrew Bird, Live on Fair Game, 12-5-2007
Andrew Bird's Armchair Apocrypha is deservedly showing up on Best of 2007 lists everywhere. He and Faith Salie remind us of the beauty in his songwriting, his music, and his whistling, with this Wednesday's acoustic in-studio performance on Fair Game. This version Heretics is so gorgeously fingerpicked, strummed, and whistled, unaffected, or blessed, depending on how you hear it, by a minor error, it's the stuff of immortalization, Jeff Buckley-esque, but God, it's just too bad that it will probably be heard by so few.
