Andrew Bird previews Useless Creatures

Although I think most of us would prefer a full preview of Noble Beast, Andrew Bird's upcoming album, you can at least listen to the album's instrumental bonus disc (available with the deluxe version), Useless Creatures, in its entirety for the next two or three days here. It's a very avant-garde set of songs with lots of noodling around on the violin like you might expect, though its definitely the most experimental music he's ever made, at least as far as I've heard.

Also, because January 20th still feels like such a long time to wait, make sure you at least hear Noble Beast's first single, "Oh No," on Bird's homepage.
