Intended as entirely electronic blip thing. Guitar and bass got bored and took over.

AVAILABLE AT:
$1.00

Conceived with an odd but persuasive growling rhythm on a Vermona DRM drum synth, using an interesting analog sequencer, in 2008. The whole song existed in a mind-only state for 4 years, and was expected to be almost entirely sequenced and synthed, perhaps slighly a la LCD Soundsystem. So what happened? Nobody knows. It didn't work. It wouldn't move. In frustration someone picked up a guitar, destroying the entire original conception - but salvaging something, at least. The drum synth was quietly unplugged, the bassist invited back into the room.

We didn't know #ghosting was a thing when we wrote this. But it's definitely all about that.
