Ping-Pong Drums

I’ve got to say, I’m infatuated with Nobody’s Tar, Nobody’s Feathers. (yeah, yeah, I know, I always love them…. whatever)

I won’t tell you how many times I listened to this on repeat, but it’s a lot and it spanned more than a day. What I found addictive (mostly) is the “AHHHHH-AHHHHH-OHHHH”s at the end. I have no idea why it is that I love that part so much, but I find it so incredible that it makes me want to hear it again. and again. and again. It’s just perfect, the way the music flows, coupled with Kristin’s “AHHHHH-AHHHHH-OHHHH”s and DAMN, it’s just the greatest thing I’ve ever heard. (yeah, yeah, I know, I say THAT all the time too)

The first thing that struck me in this song, however, was the ping-pong drums. I love how as Kristin sings the words “ping-pong” Rob makes the drums sound like he’s pelting ping-pong balls around the room. That’s so great.

I love this band. These 4 songs have surpassed all my wildest dreams for what this album would bring to the table. I’m immensely happy that it’s going to be more than the EP as first planned, and that they’ve recorded more songs to make it a complete album. The even better part? I have NO IDEA what those other songs are or what they’ll be like. I’d like to keep it that way, til it’s their turn to make it to the CASH Music download page. I can’t wait to hear what they’ll be like, having been written and recorded a year after these first several songs. I’ve found these songs to be so individual and diverse, which makes anything else unpredictable. Exactly how I like it.

I love surprises.
