Track x Track: U-Melt – Perfect World

For this month’s Track x Track, welcome keyboard wiz Zac Lasher from prog-meets-jamtronica act U-Melt who will share an anecdote or factoid about each track on the group’s new album, Perfect World.


1) Disclaimer — This album was conceived a few years ago when we were reading a lot of philosophical material. We’d all started writing along those lines independently of each other and thought that was kinda cool, we decided to nurture that instinct and specifically set out to write the songs that would become this album with that in mind. One day while sitting in the van on the way to a show, i was contemplating some of the lyrics i was working on, and i realized that i was spouting a whole lot of bullshit — which isn’t to say i don’t believe in the ideas we were writing about, but, you know… who am i to say “You are the center of the universe” anyway? i decided that it was necessary to put a disclaimer onto this album. I finished the lyrics before we got to the venue, and the music followed quickly, which brings me to…

2) Disillusion — This is the companion piece to “Disclaimer.” the initial intent was that they would always be played together, but we’ve since deviated from that. This was a fun track to work on in the studio as we were able to take what was usually a jam with a bit of structure to it, and turn it into a concise album cut. The fade out at the end is one of my favorite bits of production on the album.
