We’ve discussed Andrew Bird here before, so there’s really no need to rehash the love we have for his music. Staying in yesterday evening, I revisited some older tunes, and both remixes I have of his songs popped up. They aren’t mash-ups or complete re-workings; both stay fairly true to the original songs (from Armchair Apocrypha), and both are excellent. “Plasticities” is fleshed out some, so you can hear the layers of the song better, and the Four Tet remix of “Imitosis” loops in some drums and plucking, and drops a lot of the strings.
