Peter Colclasure – current resident of California and erstwhile key-tickler for Ball of Wax friends Smile Brigade and The Foghorns – certainly wins the (nonexistent) prize for the 33-iest song of this intermittently-themed volume. When he first sent the rather involved description of all the 3s and 33s in this song* I thought it sounded cool, but that the music itself might have ended up being a bit overworked, more math than soul. I needn’t have worried. Peter used these prompts and restrictions to craft a gorgeous piece of baroque pop packed with wit, melody, and layer upon layer of rewarding musical tidbits. More please, Peter!
