This is the first track in the Lo-Fidelity Singles series. I decided to record some new material the way that I used to in highschool: 4-track recorders, drum machines, synths, direct guitars, running every level into the red, doing vocal takes through cheap guitar pedals, and so forth. I'm doing this for the nostalgic feel because it takes me to a happy place.

Track Name: I Don't Wanna Keep You Down
Hate to break the news
There's nothing left to lose

I don't wanna keep you
I don't wanna keep you down

Hate to be the one
Not fooling anyone

I don't wanna keep you
I don't wanna keep you down

Sick of starting over and over
