“Lighter Than a Grasshopper’s Hiccup” is a pop song disguised as a grape tap dancing in the desert. It’s sad what happens when we take our eyes off the moon when we have cosmic dread already in our hearts. “Lighter Than a Grasshopper’s Hiccup” is an experimental ambient song disguised as a pop song.

They have existed in many forms over many lifetimes, sometimes as transparent blobs of ectoplasm, sometimes as a camel through the eye of a needle. It all depends on the mood. These are wild times, ya’ll. This is a track from the upcoming album “Ambrosia! Ambrosia! You’ll live forever but no one will know ya!” to be released by Baron Tapes.
