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!

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
