This track switches between three time signatures, and features an intro with a style of singing I guess one could call very vaguely eastern. It's a slow and gentle affair with softly distorted ebowed guitar, piano, and xylophone. It also includes a guitar solo in which a single note is played repeatedly. And lyrics that are pretty silly.
I wrote and recorded this probably over a year ago, but it's been sitting on my hard drive waiting for me to somehow finish it off. In the last couple of days I dusted it off and added a background vocal. I was going to add some kind of percussion beyond what's already there, but I gave up/decided I liked it as is.
In light of my recent demo postings, this is probably a good example of an overthought and overwrought recording. Still, I rather like that intro vocal performance, and how the sections flow into each other, etc. Posting it here is a way of telling my brain to move on to another song!
