I came back from Austin City Limits fest late one night and put down a bassline1 and it all eventually led to this pretty off-brand song for me.

I wanted to do something more electronic for funsies, and started playing with the bleep bloop machine just because it felt so out of left field to my naturally folky/singer-songwriter style, but then I got attached to it and ran with it. And here we are! Bleep bloop bloop.

I also got to put one of my favorite quotes from Mad Men in here (2:20), and I’m real glad I could turn rewatching seven seasons of that show into something good.

  1. It’s not even the one on this track, it’s just how it started.
