[Glitch-Jazz-blues-found sound-Guitar-Vocals]

As the least I could do. A slightly humorous, yet serious track. For a lovely lady's birthday, Kristen (May 8th [Mate]). Featuring our favorite ring-tone alarm from some shitty Motorola cell. Haa. The whole idea of this track started off with me saying to her: "Just needs a beat and it'll be somewhat listenable". We then proceeded to beatbox to the ring-tone. I then proceeded to take some time and surprise her with proof. We're on the verge of awesome. Samples are of her and I, drinking wine, along the cement harbor stairs with the Chicago city-line as our backdrop. Aw.

lyrics: (which are rather masked during the middle of the piece)
"I can see,
My bones breaking
let it be,
sutures shaking (X2)"

"...Oh no! I pressed the wrong button! Aww shiieeet.."

-This was done last year. I've always liked the way the guitar turned out. I had only showed it to her, really. Guess it's time to share the love.

A lot of your music feel like a mix between Linkin Park and Nine Inch Nails. The sounds that is, I really F***ing enjoy it! Keep it up!

Soothing chaos

It's been a while since i listened to one of your songs.
I've always been a fan of glitchy sounds and soothing songs.
The combination of these two in this song has a real nice result.
Gives me a somewhat nostalgic feel.
Really loving the part with the guitar by the way!

Keep doing what your doing man cause its great!
