Listen Hear! Jimbo Mathus & Andrew Bird reunite and bring us "Sweet Oblivion"

Reuben Cox

  listen hear!  spotlights a song we like and think you will too!

Former Squirrel Nut Zippers bandmates Jimbo Mathusand Andrew Bird are working together again for the first time in decades!   “Sweet Oblivion” is the first taste we get of their upcoming album, “These 13”, due out March 5 th via Thirty Tigers. It’s a lyrically repetitive, simple tune with a county-folk vibe. Bird takes the lead vocal and fiddle duty while Mathus shines on guitar. Bird said of the new project:  “It’s been my dream for years now to make this record with Jimbo. Just guitar, fiddle and our very different voices.” Catch the listen hear! song of the day each weekday morning at 11:10.
