Now I won't be able to listen to or see him without thinking about Walter whistling in The Muppets.

From Paste:

Quote:
The album was produced at his Western Illinois barn-turned-studio. “We had our front of house engineer Neal Jensen bring his old Tascam 8-track tape machine and Yamaha board (nothing fancy) out to my barn,” Bird said about the recording. “We rolled tape as we were learning the songs and to our surprise we started nailing the songs by the second take. I think we got a rough, unfussy honesty in this session.”

Bird said the sessions for the album were a “mix of distilled, grounded songs and some wild soloing.” The band for the Break It Yourself session included long-term collaborator Martin Dosh on drums, Jeremy Ylvisaker on guitar and Mike Lewis on bass.

The album includes songs like the steel-drum heavy “Danse Caribe,” the instrumental “Behind the Barn” and the lush, eight-minute “Hole in the Ocean Floor.”

So damn excited for this.

Martin Dosh was a great opener. You could tell those two really enjoy working together.

This is very good. First thing I've heard from him.

There's one moment on here where he's a dead ringer for John Denver, in the best possible way.

I mean on my fourthish impression I don't think this holds up against Eggs or Armchair, but it's everything I hoped it would be anyway, beautiful... especially "Give It Away" and "Lusitania"... easily tops Noble Beast.
