“Anemone” (Brian Jonestown Massacre)

“Cute Little Echo”

“House of Satan”
“Single Politician”
“Reading Rainbow”
(Horelick, Kleinman & Weir)
“The Whole Planet What?”

This was a rehearsal for the March Pilot Light show.  Only Megan, Nathan and myself were able to make it, which forced us to embrace minimalism.  We did so electronically.  David showed up for the last two tracks and filled things out for new levels.

I’ve posted most of these songs a million times a million ways, so instead of a song by song run down, I just want to point out a few things.  First, as already implied, this is kind of a dark, electro session.  Something of a Hypencrunk / Never Sorry hybrid.  This version of “Blue” is rare in that Megan sings the vocals, as Rachel was not present.  Also, that’s David on the vocals for Reading Rainbow and bass for the epic, “The Whole Planet What?”

Hypencrunk is an idea that originated with Nathan Brown back when we still played in Obadiah together.  He would apply the title to any rare touches of upbeat electro we would explore.  However, it was never fully realized back then.  It’s undeniable, though, that this session is hypencrunk.

Nathan is going to join Never Sorry for our show at the Pilot Light on March 25th.  This session was supposed to be his first with everyone else, but everyone else bailed on the session for various legitimate reasons.  So it ended up just Nate and I.

We did two songs that Never Sorry often does, two dubstep improvisations and a slowed down cover of the Reading Rainbow theme song.  We did have a microphone and there were vocals when live, but I forgot to turn the channel input up on my board so they never got recorded.  I actually think this may be to the benefit of this session.  Maybe.

Nathan described this session as “two computers talking.”  Hence, we’ve named it the Skynet Session.
