12. new snow - in 2009 i moved back to indiana. i really wanted to keep playing and recording music with people but wasn’t sure how to do it without sam, pat, and amy. i’m still not sure how to do it. old friend seth mahern now runs a recording studio and tape label out of his house in bloomington called magnetic south. seth is always in a ton of bands and is working on something. i recorded a tape for his label called “the slow wish” and this song appeared on side two. it was recorded live with seth playing the bongos and shaker while also engineering the recording. this song grew out of the second recording on this compilation “untitled”, a melody i’ve been playing and fiddling with forever.


from What Was Birds: 2000​-​2011, released July 1, 2012
