Description
One of the things I love about working with Matt is that he often does interesting things with the vocals I send him. This song is an extreme example of that. A few weeks ago, he sent me this really cool piece of music with vocals already on it; after a minute or two, I realized it was me, but I couldn't figure out where he'd gotten the audio. Apparently, Captain Packrat had stashed a couple of minutes of talking I'd sent him when I got my new Firewire interface to show him the difference in sound quality and he had sliced and diced it to make it into something completely different.

After massaging the song a bit, he added some beautiful music on the outro and I begged him to let me sing on it. This is a little different than our usual thing, but I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do.

--Lisa

Captain Packrat here. This song evolved out of an experiment I tried in 5/4 time that sounded like crap. Smooshing it down to 4/4 gave the groove this odd, lilting feel to it that reminded me of Thom Yorke's solo album, and since I want to steal everything that Thom does, I went with it. This is a tune that evolved and changed and demanded to be finished. There's talk in The Orbiting camp about an extended version at some point because Lisa's vocals at the end are so cool. So maybe it's not finished.

I guess the lesson is: don't send me any audio files you wouldn't want in an Orbiting song. BTW, the end atmosphere was recorded on my Zoom H2 in downtown Seattle during my trip to visit Lisa this summer.

And as usual, stick around for the end. Or you will miss the end.

Lyrics
It's all a war
for the future.
I will be your whore.
What do we battle for?
What are you asking for,
and do you want it?

It's all a war.
This futurewar.
I couldn't love you,
I couldn't love you more.

(brace yourself)

Your futurewhore.

I couldn't love you more.

Brace yourself, brace yourself, brace yourself.

I couldn't love you more

You'd better just hope...
that Mr. Packrat doesn't have any photos of you stored away anywhere. No telling what he might come up with.

It's funny you mention movie soundtracks because I was saying to Matt that there's something about this that reminds me of the Brimstone and Treacle soundtrack, especially as it segues into the outro.

Thanks a lot for the kind words, Allen. It always means alot from you.

Ok, "soudscape" is written in one word with an "s" at the end for the plural.
Tut... tut... tut...naughty spellchecker !

You were on an iPhone, weren't you!
My iPod Touch does that to me ALL the time with the changing of the words on me at the last minute.

Thanks, Christopher! Maybe it saw the word "Captain" up there and gave Matt a cape. :-)

This is a....

I love it that Matt gets a chance to be out front with this one, but I AM glad he let me squeak in at the end.

Thanks for saying you love it, David! You're always so supportive!

I knew
I knew that this was going to be fantastic before I even clicked on it....

And man was I right.... once again amazing track.... one of the better here at MJ..... The Orbiting always deliver the goods.... hats off.... always a joy to see a new track from you two....

Let the record show that I am convinced that Lisa is the finest female singer at MJ.... maybe not technically the best but you convey what the others fail to sometimes.... soul and light

Excellent work

Peace and Future.... Ian

two for one
very cool.

all the signature layers are here, which is a treat in the phones unto itself.

i also dig how the song changes when Lisa's vocals come in later in the piece.

excellent work Matt & Lisa.

someone needs to invent a blender plug in, to save all the time of slicing. if the blender plug in could also make a great home made salsa that would be aces too!

Had to get out the best headphones...
...to truly experience the low end definition and throbbity whomp on this...

This is sort of the lead off track for the Captain Packrat solo album, featuring assists from his supergroup partner...

Dedicated to his spiritual master, Ron Popeil...

Captain Packrat
I'm loving that this is catching on. Thanks for the support, Ed. Captain Packrat sounds like a really cool prog/experimental supergroup from the 70's. I'd say that's just about right for Matt. ;-p

It's sad how much the words "solo project" rip my guts out.

Superb!
I fancy myself a creative-type, but I feel like a total stuffed-shirt compared to what you two create, time and again. You never fail to deliver something unique, interesting, thought-provoking, and yeah, beautiful!

Nicely done. As per the norm!

Love You, Stacey!
Yeah, I'm pretty much just rolling with Captain Packrat. He's a crazy genius and I'm going to milk him for all he's got. ;-)
Seriously, though, it's Matt that makes all the unique and interesting choices and I'm lucky to share band space with him.

Love the sounds and dubby effects. Has an almost oriental feel as well. Really cool track and nice singing. Very well composed, like Everything but the Girl but much better.
