I asked Instagram and Twitter if anyone out there who could read music would be able to tell me what the melody was that is depicted in the Sunset & Vine Trader Joe’s parking lot mural. I received many responses, mostly jokes (expected), a few “this is just gibberish”es (had a suspicion) but! A couple tries at actually playing the thing!
Here’s a response from Superego's James Bladon. This is a haunting melody! Take that, The Social Network soundtrack and that one Philip Glass song from Battlestar Galactica!
Thanks also to:
Matt Kalb (with lyrics)
Be sure to pick up Superego’s country album, Mount Us More by their alter egos, The Journeymen!
AUSTIN, TX: This Friday. Two shows. Me. Superego. LIVE.
That’s all you need to know.
I beg your pardon, there is actually some more information that you need to know. Times and location, things like that. I apologize for my presumptuousness. ANYWAY.
