I'm thinking this will be the outro to my first album, or possibly come right before the final song.

Intro? Outro? Whatever, this is sweet. I love that bubbley/warbley trill that accompanies the piano.

Intro? Outro?

Middletro? Well, anyway, in my experience, sequencing an album is a very tricky and somehow mystical affair. I'd say it's pretty impossible to do until you've really got all your songs together and finished (and I mean really finished: for example, Electric Winter, you've mentioned you plan on vocals for some of these?). Only then, and with repeated revisions of the order, listening, revising again, (lather, rinse, repeat), and so on, will you arrive at that golden sequence that makes perfect sense, that flows from tune to tune like a bee from flower to flower in the merry month of June.

And then, of course, after the album's released, you'll discover the mistake you made. How if only you'd opened it with track 5, or switched track 3 and 4. Or that the whole fucking thing is totally wrong. Then you say, "what the hell", and start recording another album!
