This track is all about the restorative power of nature, music and friendship.
One day several years ago, after receiving some particularly troubling news, we went on a long hike on the Hixon Forest nature trails here in the Driftless Region of western Wisconsin. Immediately after we made a beeline for the studio, hit the power, plugged in and played.
The improvised, free-form jam you hear was done in one take, totally unplanned and off the cuff. No overdubs, no punch-ins, no post-production trickery. Just a bass, a piano, a loop... and the energy we were feeding off of in that moment. We call it "Quiescence."
