NP: "The Birds" - Elbow

Decided to start a 'Now Playing' feature on my blog, because I need an excuse to use it more.

Take this helluva song from Elbow's newest record, Build a Rocket Boys! "The Birds" is easily one of the best tunes I've heard all year. In terms of songs utilizing strings, I haven't heard much better.

Euphoric? Check. A superb build-up? Check. A great opener to a great album? Another check!

In the future I'll write a bit more. Til then, enjoy the music.
