Curve – Shotmaker

I’m going to go ahead and call this my favourite Shotmaker song, and feel good about making such an assertion. It has been hard to, pointless to, but i’m going to pick this one out.

It’s me delaying sleep by trying to figure out how to sound like them on the guitar that’s lead to this morning, but that’s no reason for them not to be here any other morning prior. And it’s the instrumental song. October 22nd. 1994. Either this was the date this song was written or recorded (or both), a day of personal significance, or a day of other, broader significance that all the “On This Day” websites fail to offer memorial.
