Ten of Spades: Subway Platform: 2:45 am

This week's song is about riding the subway late at night. Very late at night, or maybe very early in the morning. It's basically how I feel now, tired and overworked; but the only difference is that I'm home right now. Which is where I wanted to be in this song.

I did this one this weekend at the space. There are some differences between recording at home and at the space and they each have their advantages and disadvantages. At home, I have reason so I can do fake drums and synths and keyboards. But at the space, I have my better guitar, the ability to play it loudly, and my bass and, basically my better equipment. But the drawback is that the space is home to many bands and it's not the most soundproofed place in the world, as you will be able to hear at the end of this song if you listen carefully. I think it gives it character. But that's because I have to live with it.

Here's a photo of the A Train platform at 34th Street at 2:45 am:
