Cardinal Rule

"Gorgeous as a fingerpicking-type song, we started breaking apart the internal rhythms to be voiced on various 'things.'" -BC, SP Nexus 2014-03-28

"Was able to turn the corner on it by stripping back the busy/arpeggiating figures taken from the original guitar part; until all that was left was a simple chimed guitar and strings." -BC, 2014-03-29






Song discussed on the official SP site in spring 2014, possibly slated for one of the 2 albums planned for 2015.
