Lyrics
almost 9am
looks like i'm late again,
this time i couldn't find my shoes
look how you fuss and fret
& how worked up you get
you don't see whats in front of you
wait, did i never show you my anxiety?
king-size if it really wants to frighten me
other times it's like a bedbug bitin me
my anxiety
it tries to follow me wherever i go
could even wreck the magic of a new fallen snow
and just like a ghost who wouldn't stay dead
it comes with a chopper to chop off my head
hey kid, don't be like me
take up tai chi or something
feel the ground you're standing on
give up and let it go
give it some time you'll know
that it was already gone
wait, did i never show you my anxiety?
king-size if it really wants to frighten me
other times it's like a bedbug bitin me
my anxiety - i tried to make it go away
but i guess it's gonna stay
my anxiety

Great track! Great arrangement! Great production and mix. This has a vibe like REM or XTC rocking at their hardest! Great drums Scott!

"orchestra harpsichord", I think from once of those apple "Jam Packs"... in a couple of spots I ran it through a guitar rig distortion effect.... thanks for listening!

I agree with Andrew on the REM, but I hear some Elvis Costello mixed in there too. I like the hook and the lyric develops it really well. Nice job!

the bands I obsessed on in my younger days were XTC, talking heads, elvis costello, REM, husker du.
can't really shake those influences I guess!

three letter words
yeah, I internalized all their music at the crucial time, I don't listen to it that much anymore but it's worn into my brain! I spent a lot of time trying to learn Hendrix tunes too, but for some reason that doesn't come out as much...

Superb Pop
Catchy from the get go. Love the guitar work and how it plays against the smart vocals and lyrics. Perhaps a bit too much treble in the mix overall but this has such a happy upbeat feel to it. Gives me a slight Paul Westerberg vibe which is always nice.

thanks
I'm a big fan of Mr. Westerberg.
Interesting comment about the treble, I found my last post along these lines a little boomy/bass-heavy so I may have overcompensated... will try to get it right next time!

michael2 said 2343 days ago (March 19th, 2011)
cool
this is excellent, and the drums really add to it. this makes me miss playing witha real drummer. cool Husker Du/Who vibe to this, but with a quirky Robyn Hitchcock/XTC thing happening. GREAT track. wish i could have covered this for the covers challenge.

love those backups. the oompah loompas came to rock! great concept man, not easy to write about, especially in a cool seriously i'm joking kind of way. also like the simple piano back there. as always happy to have the DL and can't believe it's free. great stuff!

also...
particularly like the rhythm guitar...your playing has a signature swinging looseness that really shines on this one.

Wow. I missed this gem. Alec your vox both lead and backups are totally on the money. Great tune, wonderful guitars and Scott adds the icing on the cake. Love that little guitar riff before the chorus, very Jason Faulkner. In fact this is vintage power pop up there with anything Jason does. Expertly done my friend.

Anxiety
Sorry I missed this first time around. I was probably anxious about work! This is a fabulous slice of power pop. I just love it.

You write really winning melodies. The melodic kernel here reminds me of 60's am hit that I can't quite put my finger on...a little like "Incense & Peppermints" but that's not it. Damn, well who cares.

Lyrically, I'm so there and so is my wife--she has panic attacks!! Gonna share this with her fer sure.

I just love your hooky guitar/keys harmony parts--and that awesome intro/outro--shades of NRBQ--the highest praise I could give.

Awesome track, brother.

good call on that influence, the combination of harpsichord and jangly guitar was ripped off of their song "it's not so hard" from the scraps album..
