Andrew Bird dropped by the David Letterman show Tuesday night to strum his guitar and whistle his way through this track off Noble Beast. Mehan Jayasuriya says of the song: “‘Fitz & Dizzyspells’ skews closer to the Armchair Apocrypha model [of Andrew Bird albums], favoring layered (though mostly acoustic) guitar lines and propulsive drums, though there’s a brief pizzicato coda at the one minute mark.
