Under The River

One of our favorite songs, an epic number about the soul of a city resting under the river. Sarah goes on to list the numerous types of city workers and people who frequent this place and know of it’s worth.

#023: Horseradish


Steve: Vocals
Virginia: Guitar
Michael: Vocals, Bass

The hazy, muddy moans of horse. Steve is singing gibberish. It`s not horse radish, but jabber rash. Doesn`t jibberish sound like jabber rash? He caught some jabber rash on his arm with some gibberish. You plant a horse and you get a radish. Steve was saddle-sore on his chest and it didn’t hurt. Things were riding his chest all day long. Riding it wrong, all day long.

#022: Skyway


Sarah: Vocals
Jason: Ukulele, Harmonica, Backing Vocals
Skippy: Drums
Michael: Bass, Piano & Keyboards

A trippy jam about a pilgrimage to the sky. We end up staying on a G chord for six and half minutes and meander through a few tempo changes, with Sarah`s narrative being the glue that keeps it all together.

#018: Mosquito


Michael: Vocals, Guitar
Jason: Bass
Virginia: Vocals

A very mellow (creepy) acoustic tune, ending up with Michael whispering about mosquitos over only Jason`s awesome basslines and Virginia’s buzzing fly sounds. It’s a bit more serenely disquieting than that description would suggest though. Fun fact: the last five seconds is Michael`s audio interpretation of a fly being caught on a windshield with a wet rag that was in the middle of waxing the car.
