Album: Maximum Balloon (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from the self-titled debut solo album by producer and TV on the Radio guitarist Dave Sitek, recorded under the guise of Maximum Balloon. This song features Ambrosia Parsley. Sitek told The Guardian: "Ambrosia sang for this band called Shivaree, and she's married to one of my best friends. It's always been in the back of my mind to use her on something because her voice just grips you. It makes you feel like you're inside of some crazy movie. She can sing without any music and you're like 'What the hell?' There was a lot of unmixing going on after I got the vocal tracks. I was able to take all my s--t out and just let her voice hang there. That's the sign of a great performance."
