I was listening to Gary Newman and was struck by how he could be edgy and dream-like

A double entendre between electical shorts and missing cables. All analog.
I went a little crazy attempting to recreate the wonderful sound of Strange Cargo.
Nowhere near as precise as they are (nor as good).
The first thing I did with the Pittsburgh Modular (all sounds except the drums).
Another partially successful attempt — hence the "too" — at sounding

A smoke filled room, some guitars, and a drop of base.
Ah, yes. Moogs and that Tangerine Dream sound...
This entire song was done in one take, so all the sounds you hear and all the
changes between sounds were done live by just me.

voices, one synthetic and one electric.
Special bonus track: (Almost) entirely one voice from the Moog, playing the
Prelude from Bach's Cello Suite #1.
