Released:
Label: Mom & Pop Music
A companion EP to Andrew Bird's 2012 album Break It Yourself, Hands of Glory sees the singer and multi-instrumentalist at his most folked up and stripped down -- it was recorded with his band and just one microphone. Not only does this enhance his wistful and warm vocals, it really shows off some incredible string skills, from plucky acoustic to the haunting swoon and squeal of Bird's own violin. Alongside new track "Three White Horses," they dig into the vaults, covering artists like The Handsome Family and Townes Van Zandt, and exquisitely capturing the minimal eeriness of old-time folk.
