Boomkat Product Review:
**Gatefold slipcase with insert** "Hands of Glory is an eight track companion piece to his previous album 'Break It Yourself' (Bella Union). The latest album was inspired by Bird's recent "old-time" live sets; it was recorded with Bird's full band, all playing acoustic instruments, gathered around a single microphone in a church and a barn. Bird's live solo shows have been notable in that he uses a multi-track system to sample and loop his own performance. For example, he may record a snippet of his performance on violin, then play a "loop" of that sound. This provides a more full-bodied sound and aurally suggests a band performance, rather than the sound of a solo artist. Andrew Bird is a singer, a violinist and, since 2004, a guitarist, he is also an accomplished whistler. Trained by the Suzuki method from a young age and a graduate of Illinois' Northwestern University, Bird released his first solo album, Music of Hair, in 1996."
