A song about how humans fool pests to kill them, from the pest's point of view. Made today in 2 hours.

One of those creative outbursts where I started something on a whim and couldn't finish until it was a complete concept. This is my first time writing lyrics.... as it probably shows. They were mainly a placeholder so I could play with the talkbox and autotune plugins I downloaded.

4 tracks, Done in 2 hours (not including the previously recorded drums) with ableton live, reason, a mic, and an old drum set.

You had me at the intro. I was reminded of Brian Eno while listening to this. Some weird production tricks going on, but I quite like this.

I, on the other hand, was pretty sure I wasn't going to like this. I kept it playing while I was reading something in other tab, and then the drums came in. That was the first surprise, then the "voice" came in, and by then I was thinking I have to check out the other stuff you've posted.

I really like this song, it goes in an unexpected direction and it's very well crafted. Congratulations, onehalfjunco.

Thanks! I guess I have to work on my descriptions.
I've been making instrumental electronic music with another guy for 5 years. We're moving in a more organic direction, so I've been working on learning guitar, and recording. Hence the cover songs. More original stuff on the way.
