Another ditty from marshmallow spike. Lyrics inspired by seeing the greying faces of commuting salarymen on the train in Tokyo. And not wanting to become like that.

I really like the quavery guitar in this one!

Yeah, those guitars: how'd you keep the mics dry recording underwater like that? I also like the occasional odd disconnect between the drums and the rest of the instruments, which sometimes occurs at the top of a verse. Everything kinda scatters momentarily and then reassembles, like iron filings suddenly drawn to a magnet! I wanna hear the vox a little more up in the mix though: it's a bit difficult to make out the lyrics.

psssst: If you bring a guitar to the meetup, I'll bring a hand drum...

Ditto on the vox + up. You guys are working it. Nice!

Ah, bass, eh? Hmmm... you could perhaps bring along an upright bass, but of course that might take up about half the joint the meetup is happening at... Anyway, looking forward to meetin' ya, gomichild!

We could always go to karaoke afterwards and warble! Looking forward to meeting you too!

oooh, karaoke! I'm not ashamed to admit that I like karaoke. Cause I like singing! But last train time might cut into karaoke-ability. Anyway, we'll talk about it that night, and see what happens. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu.
