Bill Baird - "Wino Strut"

Matt Oliver of the great TV Torso recently linked via Twitter to the Bandcamp page of his former Sound Team bandmate, Bill Baird. Waiting for me there was "Wino Strut," a woozy, warm, and ambient bit of psych-rock. This song has seriously crept it's way under my skin. I don't know much about Baird, just that he releases songs under his own name as well as the Sunset moniker, and has a serious knack for experimenting with analog recording. "Wino Strut," uploaded to Bandcamp just last week, was recorded in Austin at Baby Blue Studio by Quentin Stoltzfus of the band Mazarin (Stoltzfus wrote the incredible "Another One Goes By," popularized by The Walkmen). I highly recommend snagging Baird's "Wino Strut" from his Bandcamp and then exploring the musician's rich and eclectic catalogue over at Autobus Records.

Sunset - "Loveshines II" (from Loveshines But The Moon Is Shining Too)

After the jump, watch two absolutely far-out Baird videos, one of which is wonderfully lo-fi.
