B-Side #4: So-So (Original Demo)


Get “So-So Original Demo” on iTunes

B-side #4 is also a familiar tune from the “Fresh Pair of Eyes” ep. But this particular recording of it is much older. It’s the original demo of the song recorded a few days after I wrote it (spring of 2006). I was still in college at the time and my buddy had landed a new job working at the small studio in the music department on our campus. We snuck in late one night and recorded this bad boy in one take. I love recording songs after they’re newly written – there’s a freshness to the whole feel of the final product. I used to put this song along with a few other demos I had at the time on homemade CDs (with cardboard, yarn, and stamp packaging) and sell them at shows before I ever made a real release…diy!

If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
