Liner Notes: 

@cola plays the piano part here.

This is a song that I didn't end up writing lyrics for or feeling inspired to complete. I made another song, "Guts!", to sing with Cola instead of this one. I almost forgot about this track and I figured I'd put up the instrumental on the last day of 50/90 to really empty out everything I did this summer.

This was meant to be a mix of the Who's take on "Summertime Blues" and the first ending song from Shakugan no Shana, "Yoake Umarekuru Shoujo". It didn't really end up as either. I think I did an okay job on the drums here, the rest of the track is nothing unusual for me. Perhaps one day it will get vocals. For now here's the track.

I reused parts of "Space Colony 309", another unfinished track from this summer, on this song.

Overall this was a decent 50/90. I wasn't very engaged this summer and dropped off commenting in July. My output was a bit weird, "Kaletta" and "Your Nightly World" are two of my very best songs. But a lot of what I did was majorly chaotic and kind of unpleasant. Still I finished another album and got a few collabs in.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

cool piano @cola them Kurtis that guitar smashes it and i always love your drumming although these are gentler by your standards. has a slight latiny feel in there. love the riff/solo and the back to piano. up there with the best instrumentals ive heard.

Fun tune, love where it busts out and the drums arrive. But where’s the piano?

Those keys really pumped in the emotional factor into your instrumental a lot too bad in only shows up twice ): , a bit too long for me to concentrate on though but I did make to the end. That monstrous drum solo at the end really got the adrenaline going which made the listen worth the wait.
