NOTES on The Fringemunks' Epis. 4.12 "Welcome to Westfield"

It just so happened that the song for "Welcome to Westfield" was another welcoming of sorts: It was my first song to produce in the music studio of my new home in Covington, WA. The instrumental had already been recorded at the former studio, at my parents' residence in Seattle. But the vocals were done in full at the new place. I made the song a bit quick-paced on purpose, as I wanted the "frantic" urgent nature of the episode to be reflected. Incidentally, the percussion instrument heard at the tail end of the first chorus was a pen tapping on an empty wine bottle - that wine was given to me as a new house gift. The lyrics took a while - moderately difficult.
