hey kids! here’s song TWO from “catchup with life week 2008“.

it’s about you!

also, by all means, visit www.jonsteinmeier.com for the complete song of the week cataloged streaming mp3 super player power box thingy!

————-

this song is a bit of a style study, inspired by chicago band “devil in a woodpile“, who’s performance at the hideout this week made me very happy.

i took my memory of the elements home after said show, filtered them through what i am able to play, and wrote this little dood. guitar, bass, drums, and melodica (i love me melodica). veering almost inevitably from the original sound i started stretching out harmonically a bit, and writing chromatic, and not particularly “catchy” melody lines. ah well. 🙂

thanks for listening!

until “then”
