this is a magnetic fields song that i first heard years ago. my friend ken played me their album "charm of the highway strip" in a van somewhere on a long drive between gigs (on a tour of canada with radiogram) and its lofi brand of country-played-on-casios-and-cheap-drum-machines caught me right away.
you should buy that record. anyways, this song in particular is a favorite has become a staple of the INC. live show the past few years.
this recording features some bowed banjo (which was super fun to play) and possibly the flabbiest, low tuned snare i have ever attempted.
from the greatest songs i never wrote
released April 20, 2012
