This batch of songs was recorded over the past 2+ years. Notice the far-from-perfect recording, the uncorrected mistakes, the doing-it-on-the-fly sub-par mixing. The Hover Mothers do not believe in recording and re-recording until something sounds perfect. We are not Fleetwood Mac. We like noise. And fuzz. We rarely worry about tuning. Traditional song structure is for the upper class elite. Our collective attention span is dreadful. Greg and Sam are talented drummers. Mike is not but he makes up for it by being a really good speller.
1. This song is about a stranger getting lost in the middle of a barren swath of America only to end up in an opium den.
2. This next one is about a band of carjackers who are infinitely more interested in wrapping the so-called American dream around a tree than they are in driving fancy cars. Aside from driving, cars are silly.
5. Finally, we have a song about the co-creator of Tetris, Alexey Pajitnov, being kidnapped and forced to create a product that will 'hypnotize and brainwash' the west into allowing The Cold War to continue. This never happened.
3 and 4 are instrumentals about whatever you want them to be...but 4 is clearly about space exploration.
IMPORTANT: The Hover Mothers don't care about money. We care about community. This means that the release is available as a free download. If, however, you wish to contribute, please be advised that your donation will be passed on to various social programs in Carlisle.
