“We listened to music of great expanses and found the places they emanate from led into one another. Themes from western movies fell into alignment with the oceanic spirit of surf rock, the Wall of Sound behind The Ronnettes gave way to the eerie machine babble of science fiction. We went looking for a path to lead us through these places within places and found a hole in an evergreen tree. Placing our ears to the tree, we heard the ocean singing, ‘Be my, be my baby now…’”
