The Expected Escape

Well, cortex said to upload anything vaguely musical, but since all I have is this, here's what you get!

Hey, if The Deej gets to upload Garageband tracks, so do I. :) Happy holidays!

Oh, the quality might be a little lower than I'd prefer -- I had to do a lossy conversion. But it's not very noticeable, unless maybe if you're using studio cans.

I am using studio cans, but luckily they are dented.

My favorite part is just before the drums come in and it sounds like The Warriors are getting an all-too-brief respite before the next gang shows up.

I also like when the drums change up at around 1:05, and also the rhythm static that starts around 2:10.

Ooh, if you have some decent cans, you should check out this I posted last month. There's a lot going on in there that becomes much more fun if you can hear it all at once.

I really enjoyed this, for some reason. Spiderwire, I think you are my new favorite band.

Nice, very Amon Tobiny. Would love to hear a high quality version.

Nice, very Amon Tobiny.


Well, you just made my 2007. That may be the greatest compliment I've ever been given.

Though maybe not super surprising since Amon Tobin probably accounts for 50% of what I listen to at any given point in time.... but still.... I think I'm gonna cry

Would love to hear a high quality version.

I stupidly ripped the song to a 128kbps AAC from Garageband, which I could send, but the original file itself is trapped on my old laptop's hard drive. If I manage to retrieve it, I'll re-rip it and upload that.

Well, I drug my guilty butt over here after reading your MeTa post and I am glad that I did. Enjoyed your groove and will now listen for a second time.

I'm using really old Fishers and this sounds right on.

It takes a while to take off, doesn't it? So I made the mistake of manually skipping forward and I discovered the beat already started. Then I went back to the beginning and heard it come in when it should have. Nice one. But it takes a little bit too much to get going, in my opinion.

Not that that is a bad thing.
