i think this is fairly self-explanitory…it was inspired by a line in The Brothers Karamazov, which went on to examining myself and my tendencies as a sinner.
what you shouldn’t do with your life.
i met a lady named Cathy. she has been through alot…one of those people who needs so much.
i’ve always enjoyed driving for the sake of leaving.
an instrumental track.
the voices/screaming/giggling in the back are Melissa Akkurt being tickled by Buddy Fick.
one of the songs i’m most content with on this album. written along with several in the bowling alley (aka basment) of my highschool dorm.
i’m not sure if i like this song. it has a ruff sort of flow and recording. i was thinking of adding some mellow synth backing to help it sound full but i don’t want to start that now, so i wont.
This song originally bored me. but i found out how to modulate and bend the sounds in a way that i enjoyed it. also listen for the appearance of my lovely Dumbek drum. :) enjoy
to my brother and sister. sometimes you don’t realize who you were until you left. i value family so much, but somehow i don’t live as if i do. i want to change this.
lots of left and right stereo, lots of back and forth of right and wrong. my conscience is clear.
i didn’t intentionally sound like i was dying. i just lost my voice around the time we had to record vocals…and it was a pretty high range for me…so i decided to belt it out.
Peter Hochstedler did some background yelling towards the end…
we could have been a metal band.
A Kurt Cobain growl!
hey! some percussion!
Slick and pro. Very cool indeed.
very nice! I like the minimalist treatment. Not crazy ‘bout all the lyrics but that’s just personal opinion. Great mix and build-up.
if you think that song is ghetto wait till you hear the acctaul raps beats for my neighbor! haha
