New Recording!: "Sourheart"

This one's a love gone wrong song and marvels at how people keep on trying to find love after multiple miserable experiences with it.  The mating instinct is strong, I suppose, not to mention the general human need to give and receive affection.  You can read what I wrote about the song when I wrote it and listen to the demo version here.  For the rerecording, it's the usual voice, guitar, keyboard as bass, and drums here.  To spice it up, I used some slapping my thighs for additional percussion and had some fun with the synth settings on the keyboard.  The song has an early 1980 rock/new wave vibe that seems to call out for stuff like that.  After all, Fad Gadget's not around anymore to make new tracks, so someone has to do it.  I like how it came out.  I dig that heartbeat bass drum sound.  This would be the single if I were the record company releasing the album (since I am not, they're all singles since parents love all their children).  

Thanks to The Tinnitist for featuring "One By One" on a recent playlist!

For more Wred Fright music, listen to the Yeast? 7"!

  1. If Weird Al Yankovic ever parodied this song, it should be called "Sauerkraut".
