70’s psychedelic pop. Warbly guitar, bass, human drums, some simple piano, male harmonizing vox. Lyrics generally bitter, music from sugary to downer.

+1.medtempo, leave the rat race
2.mid-slow, tired
+3.mid-slow sweet on the surface, creepy on the inside
+4.slow, bongos
++5.mid-slow, dreamy love song
++6.midtempo, Beatelesque minor key rhythm guitar FCC: fuck
7.slower, overly dramatic
8.downer, gets a little better.
++9.Days of dissolution- nice drug combo! More upbeat than title suggests.
+10.Slinky. Rhyming a bit forced but nice conceit.
11.acoustic guitar+nearly whispered vocals, pretty & sad
+12.midtempo, tremolo guitar, melodic singing, bongos
