Singled Out: Spacecamp's Miko D.T.B.

Today Jon Wiley from Spacecamp tells us about "Miko D.T.B." from their brand new EP "Alibi", which was released today. Here is the story:

Miko D.T.B. started off as a jam session in our rehearsal space I'm pretty sure. Or maybe it started off as a jam that Steven, Chris, Omer and I would play on stage at soundcheck during some Adam Green tour we did as his backing band. I can't remember which. I think the first part of the song, the versey-chorusey parts were put together long before the whole crystal-cavern-disco-outro part which probably just came out spontaneously after a joint or a lemon-ginger tea from Pies and Thighs, our favorite snack spot across the street from our space.

The problem is, we've had that song around for a long time but are just now releasing it. That's why it's so hard to remember exactly how it evolved. It's a weird song so maybe it doesn't matter when it was written. The recording doesn't really feel like it fits in any particular two year-pop-trend-pattern-cycle that industry stiffs like to believe exist, maybe some combination of Jan '76, Feb '86, May '96, Sept '06 (what a weird month) and a few weeks ago. Who knows.

Lyrically, the song is about a boat captain who is running a shipment of guns and narcotics from Brazil to the Keys for export to the states. He is betrayed by his lover. His boat is boarded by a group of very good soccer players. They carry golden revolvers and fight valiantly for their heroine (not the drug), Sister Crystalline, also the Captain's fraudulent bed-mate. Her actions are sanctified by the fact that she is the leader of an ancient-mystic-shamanistic-psychotropic religious society. Her motives are unclear, even to me. If only I had a few more hyphens I could probably figure it out. She probably means well, even though she behaved badly.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the EP right here!
