Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Zirconium wanted to be a 70s rock kinda jam. But the rest of the band stayed home so it's just me with the Epiphone SG copy and the overdrive and vocals. And the mic placement is all wrong so the sound is very lo-fi-bootleg-tape-from-the-70s.

#40 on the Periodic Table.

Lyrics: 

golden hued gemstone
is how it's found most often in nature
golden hued gemstone
is where it gets is nomenclature

zirconium
means golden-hued element
zirconium
means golden-hued element

in its oxide form
it can appear much like a diamond
in its oxide form
cubic zirconiums are not diamonds

zirconium
means golden-hued element
zirconium
means golden-hued element

in its metal form
it's widely used in nuclear plants
in its metal form
it is non-toxic and safe, give it a chance

zirconium
means golden-hued element
zirconium
means golden-hued element

used in all types and sorts of things
because of its strength and light weight
let's hear it for zirconium
number 40 it's really great

zirconium
means golden-hued element
zirconium
means golden-hued element

The words are really cool and bring something new to a song in a way I haven't seen them brought into a song before. I think it's clever. Definitely a rock vibe for these words. Good title 'Zirconium" and I like the way it repeats. Good vocals.

I'm definitely a fan of this grungy lo-fi sound! I like the nature/nomenclature rhyme, too. Another great addition to the periodic table collection!

Ooh! Nature/Nomenclature rhyme. Yasss. All about that.

Love the rawness. I feel like I've accidentally tuned into a clandestine AM radio station moored in Wellington harbour. And as much as the lyrics are pure Schoolhouse Rock, the individual words leap out in their rock-solid jaggedness and nuclearity and sit very well with the genre.

nope, that's great mic placement! I like it when I can hear the strings!!!! especially when the playing is worth hearing, but I'm probably in the minority of opinions on on that.
boo the unreliability of bands.........will always be a big pet peeve Biggrin
