Here is the Broken Social Scene inspired tune from Food for the Saints – recorded on garageband. I apologize for fake drums and horns, but you get the point. I will post lyrics and a little commentary soon. Tim will post his glorious song shortly as well. What do you think?

Food for the Saints – Pixelated



  1. When I 1st heard this song it blew me away, in a number of ways.

    1. I thought we’d just be recording rough mixes of these songs, you know just guitar and vocals.
    2. Garageband is better than I thought. I mean it’s not perfect. The drums are a bit fact and so are the horns, but it does a really really good job.
    3. The dynamic’s of the song are awesome and very broken social scene. A lot of builds and then at the peek…it doesn’t rock super hard, instead it turns back to an awesome groove or drops off a ton to a low-fi vocal tone.
    4. The song makes me feel sad and contemplative for some reason. Maybe it’s because of the works “Hang your head” or the idea of not seeing clearly.
    5. I love the bass motivated section at the end of the song, it make a very Brendan Canning sounding part.

    Loved it!

  2. Larz,

    Thanks for sharing your gift. I’m looking forward to some background and perhaps seeing the the lyrics writen out. My crappy speakers didn’t allow me to quite grab the low-fi vocal section Tim is referring in previous post. I’m always a sucker for a good Lars riff and I certainly wasn’t disappointed… (is this the same key as bobby brady? it’s a good key for you šŸ™‚

    much love.

  3. So the music was impressive keeping in mind that it was created by musicians that are 400 miles away, sweet use of technology. The song felt like it dragged on for me, i wasn’t a big fan of the same music and lyrics repeated for that long. I would shorten up the song, but thats just me. I also didn’t feel like the music fit the lyrics that much, upbeat music with somewhat somber lyrics. But overall decent, i’m looking forward to future additions…

  4. Hey guys,
    If you are using Garage Band, what are you using for an audio interface?

    The song sounds good, a little bit like Love Cars. I’m excited to see what else you guys bring to the table. I was telling Tim the next evolution will be for you to share raw tracks so you can feed off of/into each other’s songs.

    Maybe in lieu of King Hippo, the convergence of your two side projects could be known as Soda Popinski or Don Flamenco. Just some suggestions. Think about it.
