∆like in the night how the heart becomes the truth∆

   like in the night how the heart becomes the truth  by  howtodresswell

more lo-fi shai from your boyz htdw & cokc dokc.

the first cut samples debussy --- i encourage you to listen to this one super high on headphones. trust me.
the second cut samples AIDS 3D (and is definitely the most straightforward pop song we've done). track three sounds best REALLY loud --- it's good to remember the noise.
track four is an official banger. the fifth and final cut is yet another abstract pop tune. ya.

don't forget the other jams --- they're down there below nate dogg.

friday morning hymnal #2 --- ready for the world

here's another cut from the next htdw & cokc dokc 3" CD called 'friday morning hymnal'

this track is called 'ready for the world'

it's got that whole "you're a little kid in 1990 and your downstairs neighbor just got broken up with by his boyfriend and he's playing sad r&b and you can hear it through the floor and you can hear sobbing between the tracks playing on the stereo" vibe...
