I’d follow animals around all day – squirrels mainly – and use it to add a soundtrack to their lives. I think it would be the perfect time as they’ll just be starting to forage for nuts, and I believe a pulsating synth backing track would really spur them on.
There’s a new Mars Volta album meant to be released next year, along with the final part in the Marmaduke Duke trilogy. A new Glassjaw album would be nice but that’s never certain.
