After a few years spent dabbling in folk music, layered instrumentals and covers of Handsome Family songs, Andrew Bird makes a return to violin-driven rock on Are You Serious. Filled with clever wordplay and jaunty whistled melodies, the album signals a return to the experimental pop songcraft of 2007's Armchair Apocrypha without sacrificing Bird's artistic growth in the subsequent years. Expect a career-spanning set (and his signature spinning speakers) that takes advantage of the finely-tuned acoustics of Pritzker Pavilion.
