Description
I have a friend whose mom is a dominatrix that runs a bed and breakfast in Jamaica (tax shelter or something). the place is really more like a run down ranch.

anyways, this song is a close to 10 minute long, slow,simmering,psychedelic ode to wanting to be free in the warm waters of a place or a feeling like Jamaica. (think My Bloody Valentine and Gary Numan jamming on Kashmir). There is no guitar on this, but it's still heavy (pretty much a wall of sound).

As I said, it's 10 minutes long, but goes through a few moods and I think the length is perfect. Live, we've played this for over a half an hour. Scott is playing drums, and Io is playing fuzz bass.

live we
might break it down to drums with a ton of echo, and the synths just droning while I pick up a guitar or the theremin and make some noise. we've had a section with fake flutes. flanger sounds and slide guitar. nothing is ever planned on this one. actually though, i don't play live much anymore (i prefer to leave my stuff in the house). i'm glad you like it.
