Are You Serious

Released:
Label: Loma Vista Recordings
The prolific songwriter/violinist’s gentle chamber-pop specializes in lushness without making an analog purist's fetish of it. Bursts of high-tension guitar intrude on the swirls of "Capsized" and "Are You Serious," while plucked strings percolate with a bubbling electronic beat on "Truth Lies Low." "The New Saint Jude" sets postmodern neurosis (“ever since I gave up hope I'm feeling so much better”) to an amiable Paul Simonish melody. And in its graceful slides between lilting folk and intricate instrumental art-pop, "Saints Preservus" is the perfect confluence of Bird's motley skills.
