To Serve Man (LIOLI-10)

Description
We didn't even try to hide the loop on this one. Instead, we exploited it--along with one of Cat's favorite Twilight Zone episodes.

Cat started it off with a baseline instrumental and vox, and Bryn really brought it to life with the awesome space-march bass and percussion, some really groovy production and the episode voice-overs.

We hope you have as much fun listening as we had creating it!

I'm SO glad you did join in, B! The song is lightyears better for it ;)
Forgot to mention your way-cool vox in the chorus, too. It's always a pleasure to sing with you!

Thanks again! :) (And thanks for the Theremin synth!)

A touch of the Residents
For some reason, your singing and the cool/quirky music here brings to mind "The Residents - Harry the Head", my favorite of theirs. Love it.
ttfn,

The loop never sounded so elegant
something about it sounds quite different than it's real self. Excellent idea Cat - and cool adds Bryn. Great track.

No need to hide...
when you put all of these elements on it. Cat is always ear candy to me, and you Bryn, always extrapolate the maximum available from a sound bit.

Kudos

Trippy and spacey
I sometimes wonder where all of the theramin players went after the mid 60s once the sci-fi movies and shows became passe. Now I know...

Cool production guys. Lots of layers here to keep things moving along with the shambling-gate beat (like one of the outer space monsters approaching with improbably slow lurching movements).

It sounds like you had fun with this!

Cheers,
Doug

I don't know if it
was intentional but the vox reminds me of Karen Carpenter and her Calling Occupantsof interplanetary Craft and how ironic given the opposite extremes of the two songs.Dig it ,you sure cooked up a winner !
