I released this song on YouTube. I thought I'd share it with you guys on NG.

Before the pandemic, I would wander downtown Chicago listening to heavy shoegazing music. I tried to mimic the vibe I got from the music I listened to in that city in this song. I imagined a montage of the Loop district during a bright sunny day, where the camera watched the CTA trains go by and observed the busy streets and storefronts. The beginning welcome message was put there because I imagined a group of people who wandered into Chicago and met someone who knew the city well, who offered to show them the ropes.

Yeah, I know it's esoteric, but that's just how I hear it, heh.

I create YouTube videos where I screencap myself during the time I write music and speed up the footage. You can find a video like that for this song here:

Hey that's pretty good. Can't wait until the pandemic is over so I can visit Chicago more often.

OHHHHH, this is like Dark Country and western blues or something like that.
of course at first is almost like a presentation of a Radio Show, it has certain Noir vibe to it too
