Hedgehog Tennis! Wow! What a classic! This was written
at the start of summer 2021. It was the second to last song in a really
consistent songwriting phase (phase?) which lasted from September of
2020 to May of 2021. I believe I recorded it, along with its bside which
I'll get to next, towards the end of the summer. Hedgehog Tennis
was going to have a music video to help promote it, but I hate making
them so I didn't. Similarly to the other songs I wrote at the time,
Hedgehog Tennis has pretty vague lyrics, so you can interperate them
how you'd like. That guitar part at the end is for people I don't like.
Kimura's Monkey Puzzle Tree isn't that good! Let's be honest! I was
going to try to make a Brian Da'Ddario esque 3/4 ballad since I realised
I only had like one song in 3/4 at the time, but I didn't fully commit
to this and made something very simple instead. Idk there's not really
much to say about it. I'm no good at recording quiet songs yet and this
song is the best example of this. It sounds like shit.
The BBC liked Hedgehog Tennis. Slow Motion Panic Masters gave it a good
review. Maybe it should have been called "Hedgehog's Dilemma" instead.
Hedgehog Tennis was mostly influenced by
MGMT's "Flash Delirium". Kimura's Monkey Puzzle Tree is uninspired TRASH!
