AND, 7: Trio at sunset

The seventh track on AND is a personal favourite. The track was recorded for Naviar Haiku but, like many, it really was just the excuse to record the riff I was riffing on that week.

The haiku started me thinking about roosters and I ended up thinking about Westerns. It was a bass driven riff but the aesthetic chosen by the gunslinger image really shaped the result. I recorded the guitar and then the drums, which aren't the strongest but mostly work. For a while the track didn't seem to sit right and then, when I was re-exporting for the album, I changed the reverb and it seemed to all fit together properly. That was an interesting experience, hearing how my perception shifted.
