*Track 16 is me and an old friend from high school. On weekends we occasionally stay up all night bullshitting and improvising. Sometimes we record ourselves playing along to earlier tapes of improvisations. All low-fi, maybe even no-fi- recorded on his phone and played on thrift store guitars, keyboards, bongos, xylophones, penny whistles and drums, which he collects during the week. There are endless recordings and buried in all of it are some neat moments where we occasionally hit on something, though God knows we'll probably never have the patience to find the "good" stuff amongst all the fooling round and talking. But I like this little excerpt from last year, it sounds like the Shaggs covering Can while a bunch of elves build a cabinet in the background.
