Mimicking Birds: Shellacked in Tar
Summer will be arriving in a few weeks in the US and some of you coastal denizens and vacationers will be returning home from the beach, discovering that you couldn’t quite scrape the remnants of that washed up stray tar-ball from your heel. I can only imagine Floridians delight as their kids whole feet are shellacked this summer from the deepwater oil rig volcano drift, a readily identifiable mark as to where they spent their time.
We recently featured Mimicking Birds over on our daily blog to much fanfare, and decided to place this track here on the acoustic feed. It eerily seemed to mirror some of the recent events in the Gulf, and well its just an excellent song from the crew’s free collection over on Virb. I’ve tagged on some opening and closing commentary that fits in with the name of the group – enjoy.
