““Night Trip” sets a tone of contradictory nostalgia, as alluring as it is frightening. Imagine a recurring nightmare you haven’t had since you were a child yet which now pricks at your desire to see it with waking eyes. This is the ouroboros whose songs are documented herein. “Ordered and Filed,” on the other hand, is cloaked in a honeycombed past.

Tonight’s songwriting started out with an attempt to make something renaissance-faire sounding but ended up turning into something more along the lines of a horror movie soundtrack, so I just went with the flow.
