"La Ferrassie" as written by and Wright Monks....
Don't forget to write
Don't forget to write
They buried me
In southwest France
La Ferrassie you know I am

Don't forget to write
Don't forget to write
They buried me
In southwest France
La Ferrassie you know I am

The kids were teething
When they put me underground
No one ever saw breathing
La Ferrassie you know I'm found

    General CommentI wrote this song while I was living in Montreal away from the other guys in the band. Graham had put some instrumental stuff together on his computer and sent it over to me. I took a few seconds of drums and keyboards from the very end of the MP3 he sent and slowed it to half speed (which caused the pitch to drop exactly one octave) and then recorded it as it played back through a guitar amp. This is what I used to make the demo version of “La Ferrassie” and it sounds pretty much the same on our EP. I hated playing this song at first cause it was slow but I’ve gradually come around to liking it. At the start of the Daytrotter version, I’m strumming a mandolin which causes the bass to ring in harmonics which gives a neat start to the song. I was actually having a big Animal Collective phase.

    General Commentit breaks out in the end? It breaks out in the end?!
    i didn't expect that, and it was totally awsome!
    with the running keyboard, it's really catchy.
    and the random screaming in the background is a perfect touch.
    GO TPC!

    General Commenti love this song so much. at first i was like, "ew," and i just skipped over it. how wrong i was!! it's probably the best song on the whole cd. im in love with how it's so melancholy and then all of a sudden it just gets so loud.

    General CommentIt seems like its about someone or something forgotten/Lost just like La Ferrassie the fossil.

    General CommentI was immediately attracted to this song, I think I can appreciate slow songs easier because they help me concentrate better when I'm drawing. Though I love my fair share of fast songs.
    Anyway, I really like the idea of a person being lost or forgotten like a fossil, like Oranje said; but overall it seems like a fairly simple song.
    It's really haunting, and pretty. Until the end when it picks up, which is enjoyable as well.
    I know it's Songmeanings not Songreviews, but there's not much to analyze, I suppose.
