***Last night in Seattle***
If you've ever been to one of his shows, you know that Andrew Bird's live music is a completely different treat from his studio stuff.

Miike Snow is a new band shaped out of Swedish production team Bloodshy & Avant then blended with Downtown Records producer Andrew Wyatt. The handful of songs they've released have a tendancy to slide through your eardrums like silk, you'll definitely be hearing more from them in the future.
