Piggy (demo) 04:20
I never was the kind of piggy To cry Oui Oui the whole way home I musta thought I was a little to jiggy To try anything like that They say dance like no one's watching A little hard when you're paranoid Before you start I'm stopping I'm 'bout as social as a cat (cat cat) What lesson do you want me to learn? Or better yet what's your point? This whole goddamned place can burn You just better roll that joint You see I never was the kind of piggy To cry Oui Oui the whole way home I don't care how I get there Right-foot-left-foot-mobile or brougham

about

I'll be brief. Boxer brief.

One year ago today at 11:31 pm CST, I started shaking uncontrollably. 'Twas the beginning of a fantastic voyage known as Covid-19. These are the two songs I was working on that day. Presented as they were then, no additional edits or improvements.

Piggy: Before I became fully obsessed with synths, my primary instrument was guitar. I hadn’t played with any seriousness probably since 2011. Just a simple two chord riff. Distorted and dirty. Lyrics were freestyled. Everything is first take, just trying to get the idea down. I also hadn't sang in about two years due to a mysterious cough. As such it's pretty rough. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Monkeys: Just messing about with the Prophet-6, a tape echo, and a digital delay. That is all.

The song lengths are a happy accident. That it happened to me on tax day and how taxing it's been on my body is some kinda cosmic dad joke. LQTMS.

Thanks SO MUCH for your support over the past year. I love you.

Be kind to yourself, be gentle to others. 😘
