7. breath of the bloodsucker - this song was recorded by simone rubi in the apartment we shared in oakland in 2005. we recorded this the night before i was leaving to go on a two week tour of america with sam flax and our friend willis stork (sorcery). simone recorded and mixed it on her computer and also sings on it. this song appeared on a tour cd-r, “hums”, made and sold on that first and only birds of america tour. we went from california to indiana and played 5 or 6 shows on the way. it was a month or two after the album came out in 2005 and it was a good trip, the highlight of which was staying with our friends chris barth and seth mahern for a few days in bloomington. we played a show, wore dashikis in a thunderstorm, and recorded an improvised freak out with everyone in the basement. music! friends!
