Bill Baird

San Antonio native Bill Baird is a master of setting up imaginative concepts and executing them to their most creative potential. Take Baird’s 2011 tune “Your Dark Sunglasses Won’t Make You Lou Reed.” It’s a little 69 Love Song with massive reverb and space-tone keyboards, in which Baird trash talks some wanna-be bohemian. Hey white boy, those shades don’t make you look like Lou Reed. In fact, they don’t make you look like John Cale, Sterling Morisson or “even Doug Yule,” the “Jesus”-era replacement for Cale. Baird’s 2011 effort Goodbye Vibrations rocks a similar commitment to execution, in addition to being a great riff on the Beach Boys. Over eight tracks, Baird eeks out a vibrant world of acoustic pop, with just slight variations on the plucking rhythm that ties the album together. With Creatura, Shiva’s Medicine Chest, Delenda, Femina-X.
