I gotta admit, I've never been to a clambake, only ever fish boils... which are similar, except for clambakes usually involve mollusks and giant sea-bugs, and fish boils involve fish. Also, clambakes are more steaming and fish boils are more boiling. You're more likely to see Green Bay Packers jerseys at fish boils, and more likely to see New England Patriots jerseys at clambakes. This music is west-coast, though... The more I think about it - the less useful this descriptive paragraph becomes. Uncompressed download comes with a couple mild variations, including "Psychedelic".

What's the difference between a dead frog in the road, and a dead trombone player in the road? The frog was probably going to a gig! Hah! Get it? Well... it took me 8 years to get it, so let me explain. When you go out hunting frogs, that is called "gigging". Gigging is bad for a frog. When you go out playing an instrument in a band for money, that is called "gigging". Gigging is good for a trombone player... but man, you gotta be good. You pretty much need a bass player and a drummer... not many people need a trombone player, so they typically don't get many gigs... Did I explain that right? Wait, let me start over...

Welcome to the tropical paradise of Port Horizon. Not much to do here but listen to the short wave radios and play guitar. There is also food and drinks with those little umbrellas... Other than that - not much. Except snorkeling. Snorkeling is pretty cool. Oh, there is also Art Night on Tuesday - where you get a volleyball and some paints and make yourself a friend! Beach chess... I forgot about Beach Chess. Don't play white against Todd, though - he plays all-Hedgehog all the time. Come on, Todd - just once, seriously ONCE could you play King's Indian or... you know what? I'd even take the French Defence; Exchange Variation, you boring symmetrical jerk.

So many big drums! All the big drums in all one place! Bonus; Extra people banging on gamelan metals! Uncompressed download comes with a version with just the drums... I'm not sure if this of for non-musicologists who may not like the gamelan - or specifically for musicologists who think I've used the gamelan improperly.

Picture a pixellated medieval village... cause that's what this is. It is the kind of music we think they played back in the day. It is not historically. But I'm okay with that, because we also didn't have lich-kings, lich-mages, lich-illithids, lich-warriors, or lich-archers. We did have lichens, though... I like lichens!

Hey buddy, wanna buy a ferret? How about a trained ferret? Okay, I didn't really train her... she just has a predisposition to things. She stuffs squirrels into boxes, feeds them sugary treats and then empties the boxes though mailslots. Well, if you're not going to buy her, how about some nails... to keep your mailslot closed.

Player One Up! Ready! Go! Health 100%. Weasel Gun Equipped. This is sort of how I imagined 80s electronic music people tried to copy the distorted guitars of the day, but with 8bit sound sources. It doesn't sound like guitars at all, but it does sound like people trying to sound like guitars... and that's a thing now.

Some beautiful rural americana-type music. I mean, just listen to that! It is an 8 piece ensemble, and everyone is playing a lot of notes, yet it remains so simple. Okay, the violins aren't playing that many notes... had to pick up the 2nd violin off the waiver wires, and there wasn't enough time to get her up to speed on the offense for this piece. So we made an executive decision, and kept things simple. We should still be able to get some good yardage here, and hope to win on defense.
