“Burroughs” is the first track from a session recorded in the wilds of Western Massachusetts in the springtime of 2012. It was inspired by the last words of the gentleman who wrote the most significant experimental novels of the late 20th century (Naked Lunch, Soft Machine, The Ticket That Exploded etc.) - writer William S. Burroughs (“Love? What is it? Most natural painkiller what there is.”).

“Burroughs” was recorded and mixed May 18-20, 2012, by Justin Pizzoferrato at Sonelab in Easthampton, MA.

Not sure how I missed this when it came out last month. After one listen, I kind of like it, but feel it pretty much said everything in the first 2.5 minutes.
