If you are a big Andrew Bird fan you will want to check out this instrumental bonus disc from the Noble Beast limited edition release entitled Useless Creatures. Just being released separately for the first time, this one brings an excellent listen with a great span of feeling. While we all love his witty lyricism, you definitely won't be missing them here. Chilling and convivial, Andrew Bird once again demonstrates his mastery of the violin and compelling compositional skills in what he describes a an "ambient experimental record." We are able to hear some longer stuff, namely a bone-rectifying 10 minute "The Barn Tapes" followed by a 9 minute "Carrion Suite". Listen to this in very dim lighting.
