So, I wrote that song about New Zealand’s not-so-mythical giant eagle, (Harpagornis moorei), but I wasn’t really satisfied with the way the rhythm track came out. And the monks – they didn’t fit once the tempo got halved. That’s the problem with deadlines, even self-imposed ones. Sometimes you just have to get the thing done.
Which is not to say revisions after the fact are out of the question. Here’s a crunchy, Weezer-esque remix. It sounds more like the kind of thing you’d want to hear while being carried away by a flying predator with a 10-foot wingspan. It sounds better than the original (or, if you prefer, the rough draft). I may do another.
