Part 1

Title: I Swear to you my friend it will be alright
Artist: Noggin
Album: As Yet Unknown
Date: 2005

This one comes up today because it has vocals from my own dad, El Medico / Dirty Knife. So happy Father’s day. He will probably dislike this song because he is not a fan of “rap music”. Well, I’m sorry pops, but if you can label anything a bit more adventurous than the Mormon Tabernacle Choir as “rap music”, then yea, we’ve got a long way to go.
I wrote this song for a very good friend of mine who was just having a bit of an existential crisis. I can’t remember the details but it’s likely because the details don’t matter, it was the overall feeling I was concerned with at the time, and I hope that my feeble attempt to lend a hand through resonances is remembered for nothing more than the crux feeling it was expressing. For as terrible as the internet can be, the ability to collaborate musically with each other, he in San Marcos, me in Praha, was really a blessing.
Here’s to new fathers.
