Man, I love how he can basically just create his own orchestra on-the-spot with the help of a couple loop pedals. Whether or not you dig his songwriting or vocals, just the technique and timing of this kind of thing is something to be admired. There are plenty of other musicians making good use of loops in their live shows, but I don’t think anyone is doing it quite like Andrew Bird.
