One of the most frustrating things about music is the act of finishing something you are really proud of, and realising that those 2 minutes and 40 seconds is the entirety of that idea. You can’t use it again. It seems like such a waste. Could I drag it out much longer? Sure. Would it work as well? Doubt it. Imagine if Paranoid was a 15 minute prog rock song.
This one is supposed to sound like a lonely central-ish American desert. California, Nevada, somewhere around there. I have a desert fetish. I find the sparsity and desolation attractive. It’s fun to try to translate into music.
