|#10: Grackles, gunpowder ice cream, shearwaters + heard mentality in "Sardines"||
12/22/2020> The 10th tune on Herd of Birds is "Sardines," another # that started out w/ us messing around w/ loops + noises + we was about to scrap it but our bedder-½ said she could hear sum Fiona Applesque sorta singing over it so we wrote sum lyrics + she turned it into a song. We have no idea what the lyrics are about, the image of running a marathon w/ an Elvis impersonator (think it was in San Diego) popped into our head + how even tho he wouldn't win he'd look cool doing it + then we got to thinking about herd mentality + sardine bait balls, how they all fight to get into the middle of the pack to avoid getting picked off + then we was reflecting on Cannery Row + Steinbeck + the year we spent living in Monterrey + scooby diving there so spose it's about all of that. The noises that sound like dolphins are actually birds, grackles + then in the interludes that's a channel-billed cuckoo + a Cory's shearwater. The looping drums we sampled from an old Korean drum album (Samul Nori) we had + embellished on top of that (banging on our blender filled w/ water amongst other things) + then just added some guitar twangs + a wandering bass line.
no 1 wins dressed as Elvis
witch 1 added chlorine?
