Lake Forest is a quiet and very wealthy little suburb north of one of the three greatest cities on the planet: Chicago (Minneapolis and Paris are the other two, btw). Back in 1973, the city saw the birth of Andrew Bird, one of the finest musicians of the last two decades. Bird is based in LA now and has explored just about every genre you can imagine.
His latest effort, My Finest Work Yet, is indeed his finest work yet. The opening track is my pick for the week. Get in touch with your inner Clint Eastwood spaghetti western!!
