about

There was a nest of baby birds making quite a ruckus in the corner soffit directly outside my recording studio room. To regain silence and resume recording, I decided to remove and transport the nest as humanely as one could, and hope the mother would acquiesce and continue tending to her babies in their new location. The melody and the lyrics "(Bird trunk) Three birds in the ground, (Bird trunk) never make a sound" came directly from a dream I had the night after I found the baby birds dead in their nest, apparently left for dead by their mother. The song is a tribute to the ghost of this experience, which haunts me still today.

lyrics

One bird, two bird, three
They don't scare you but they sure scare me
And before I'm eaten, friend,
could you stop this dream from happening?

Bird trunk
Three birds in the ground
Bird trunk
Never make a sound
Bird trunk
Such voracious carnivores
Bird trunk
Quiet evermore

One bird, two bird, three
They don't scare you but they sure scare me
And before I'm eaten again
could you stop this dream from happening?

Bird trunk
Three birds in the ground
Bird trunk
Never make a sound
Bird trunk
Such voracious carnivores
Bird trunk
Quiet evermore

about

Jason Ludwig Austin, Texas

"'Lost In Love' and 'Tanglings' are phenomenal offerings. It's almost unfair that Ludwig — formerly leader of the Rock group Noctaluca — was able to produce two full-lengths as good as these (most people would die for one in a lifetime)."
--Mike Breen, Citybeat Magazine 2011
