i've heard this song live a few times and i like it but just got home from work and listened to this quickly...think i need a few more listens. the tempo stuff in the beginning is off putting or i'm not getting it just yet.

p.s. there's a torrent of one of the Treefort nights here:

found it when looking for the track.

I got to see them play this song live too, and I really like the studio version. Seems like a pretty seamless transition from live to studio, in my opinion. Can't wait for the new album!

yeah i like it after another listen. sometimes it just takes a while for me to hear something right...i have some hearing damage from sinus allergies and too much time spent in my youth standing in front of a Fender Twin Reverb. took me a few listens with the Best Room too.

i am definitely very excited for this record!

seriously grab that torrent i posted, its 3.21.14 Treefort and its the new songs set, which turned out to be Unthered Moon, played as a three piece with just Doug on guitar. its going to be a good one.

Yeah I've got that show already, and all the new songs sound great. I'm disappointed that quite a few of them didn't end up on the album though, like "Fuck 2006," "Crawl," and "Dog Food World."

It's weird. I like it.
