about

At some point between when I figured out a chorus and when I finished the the song, I had recorded a bunch of extra parts for "Maraschino Shelly" to continue my exploration into "lush instrumentation" that had hit fever pitch with "Live Más, Die Young."

I guess this has a bit of a Black Lips-meets-Beach Boys vibe? The dueling, not totally in tune/in key jangly guitars is definitely something you'd hear on 'Arabia Mountain' or something, while what they're playing might feel more at home buried in a pre-'68 Brian Wilson composition. I dunno, I kinda wish I had released this version instead of the more sparse, driving version that made it to the final mix, but I guess it would've been trickier to make it sound as commanding as the final "Maraschino Shelly" does with all those slippery licks.
