The first rip-rocking, smash you in the face, 2 minute roller-coaster ride single from the upcoming album, River Kid.
This song is an entire 14 piece rock band recorded using only the built in microphone and voice memos app of the iPhone 4, then edited in Garage Band before being transferred to an analog studio for mixing and mastering by Next Level Games audio designer and techno wizard Scott McFadyen. The entire album is being recorded this way.
