This is what my basement sounds like

Bouefcake has 9 or 10 proper original songs by now. It's pretty hard to share songs that you've lovingly crafted with a skeptical public. Songs can be very personal and it's easy to be self critical about even the smallest recording mistakes. Usually we'll work out various parts for weeks, trying out different ideas and someone will spend days coming up with lyrics.

That's not the case with these two songs. These ones basically came out as is, with Kevin improvising the lyrics. In fact, with The In Security Song, we literally made it up about twenty minutes before this recording was made; what you're hearing is exactly the third time we played it through. Somehow, it is so much easier letting go of things that you didn't try hard to create.
