Improvised sludge-rock by three people who'd never played together before. Stereo-action guitar pyrotechnics by nylon.
cloeburner and I used to be in an improv noise rock band called cloeburner. When I listen to this song, I think of a majestic bald eagle, sinking slowly into a pool of lava and contemplating its own mortality. I hope you will, too.
