For those of you who don’t make it out to festivals, this may be the only look you get at the documentary Andrew Bird: Fever Year. These hybrid concert footage/documentaries are all the rage these days (check Sigur Ros’ Inni), but this one looks particularly interesting as it documents Andrew Bird’s sickly touring lifestyle: “Have I simply been ill this year or am just turning into another type of animal?”
The footage takes a look into his home recording studio and even has St. Vincent’s Annie Clark making a guest cameo. Bird owns all the rights to the film and currently has no plans of commercially releasing it. Hopefully he’ll change his mind, but for now, check out the trailer below:
