Notes

Pomp Under Difficult Circumstances
This is the opening track for the album. I pictured a train coming into a station. The audio is a rendition of the basic melodic idea. This will be less of a song and more of a textured piece of the album (think "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" (the song) but less musical). Honestly, it'll probably just be Aaron doing a fine ass job on the Trumper and a bunch of sounds. It sets the album up.
The Tuber Family
The Tuber Family is what it is. It's light and not super serious and very easy, very melodic. We can get really good at this very quickly. I'd like it to be totally acoustic (except maybe Fuma doing something righteous on the electric if we can get it to fit). Sage can get out the banjo big time on this one, and I'll probably play accordion? Regardless, we already kind of know this one. Here's the brass part
March (of the Daylight Savings Octopus)
This is going to be a really cool track. It's a little non-sensical, but here's it's structure (to be used with the lyric sheet):

Verse 1 --> Verse 2 --> Chorus --> Instrumental (Solo) --> Sampled Verse from EP --> Chorus --> Outro

The two verses, the instrumental solo, and the Outro are all in audio form above, listed respectively.
