Presenting to you a track from the upcoming Deftechnixks album "Reliefless"! It is going to be a study of repetition - each track is the same motif repeated over and over for 2:30 mins. The only changes result from human mistakes and boredom on my part. Do not worry, in fact there are minor changes within each track, but only noticeable thanks to the repetition. As it appears, you grow more and more focused and wary of every little change as the track progresses... So I consider it a very rewarding listen! Enjoy, here is "(Marks In The) Sand (On My Porch)" - track number 7 on the album, so the drums, bass, guitar, keyboard and vocal line each consists of 7 notes.
