New Disclaimer song: "(The) Hale Boggs/Bopp"



Here's a new Disclaimer song I recorded, "(The) Hale Boggs/Bopp." Figured I should share something, since it's been six years since I've "released" a new song, and I think this is the best one I've ever written. (I know, it's a stubby yardstick against which to measure, like saying, "This is Eric Schaeffer's most enlightened work!" or "Chad is the least repugnant human being on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange!" Still.)

Disclaimer: "(The) Hale Boggs/Bopp"

Lyrics, if you're interested:

Something unknown has curdled the waters
We are inured to licking flyswatters
We're conditioned to react by cocooning
Weapons mistaken for spiders ballooning


This one will likely be the last song on the potentially forthcoming new Disclaimer album, They Burned for 18 Days, so this is what you'll miss when you turn it off early in exasperation.

CURRENT MUSIC: There is Love in You by Four Tet.
CURRENT MOOD: Amused by snoring puppies.
CURRENT EVALUATION OF OUR THOUGHT LEADERS' NEWEST VALUE PROPOSITION: A big "win"!

fflo: okay i hope you don't react badly to this but

i just played the /Bopp while meandering through chatroulette a bit. more people seemed to stop to talk to me than usual! and not the masturbators!

I don't know what Chatroulette is except that Ben Folds is evidently somehow involved? Can they hear what you're listening to or do you think the song had more of a cosmic magnetism? :)

The Ben Folds connection is basically that someone put up a popular youtube video of them improvising songs on piano for people on chat roulette, everyone thought he was Ben Folds because he wore glasses and could play piano, then the actual Ben Folds did the same thing in homage at one of his shows I guess.
