this is why

More of a slow-building groove than a "song." Probably recorded about 10 years ago, I honestly can't remember.

No connection at all to tmcw's awesome This is why, but I saw his song and it triggered a "don't I have song called that?" memory.

Gah-roovy lo-fi drum programming, choco! And yeah, the slow build is good. Stays fun to listen to throughout, what with the constant layering of parts. Nice panning on those vocals, too! And the wah-wah stuff coming in toward the 3-minute mark makes me very happy. And then the unceremonious ending is, of course, the best thing you could've done. Excellent!

Yea, this is great, choco. I love how this evolves and how you mesh funky elements with the more chill elements like the smooth acoustic and the vocals. Very sweet, I don't think I've heard anything quite like it before.

Thaat's why! Heh, song titles. This is excellent - sweet drum programming, and, I think this and some Wilco are the only examples in the world of wah that sounds awesome.
