Stream Andrew Bird’s Noble Beast & Useless Creatures

When we gave Noble Beast its Premature Evaluation, we noted Andrew Bird (here with flyaway hair) hasn’t been shy about previewing album tracks live and via streams. The record — along with the instrumental deluxe-edition disc Useless Creatures — is out in a couple of weeks (1/20) and the previews have gained momentum: Catch Noble Beast in its entirety at NPR and those Useless Creatures at Bird’s site. Contrary to the titles, the Useless instrumentals are more interesting than the Noble collection.
