There's No Coffee in Hell

This track is influenced by an era of 60's kitschy jazz a la Henry Mancini, Herb Alpert, and many others. As someone who at one time was a very serious jazz student, it took me awhile to appreciate this style, but now it's one of my favorite things. It's inspired by the world of Archer, Venture Bros, and anywhere else there's a debonair spy set in an ambiguous era.

People are often confused by the title. Despite the light, smooth nature of the track, it was actually written to be a humorous underscoring for mornings when everything goes wrong. You oversleep, your shower breaks, you realize you forgot to buy more coffee beans, you can't find your keys, you miss your train or bus, and by the time it's noon you have said the F word out loud 436 times. It's like being in Hell where, on top of overall general horribleness, there isn't even any coffee.
