about

First of all, please understand that we don't actually expect anyone to pay $1000 for this collection of songs. We set the price deliberately (insanely) high to discourage folks from downloading this in its entirety. Simply put: we'd like for you to listen to it, but we don't want you to buy it.

Now that that's out of the way... here's why we created this BandCamp page:

We have an affection for demos.
Some are just too terrible or embarrassing to share, some are slightly cringe-worthy but interesting (when you can hear the germ of an idea), some include vocal gibberish or soon-to-be-abandoned lyrics, and others… well, sometimes a demo version becomes a released song. Most of “Volunteered” Civility and Professionalism were demos, and when we tried to make more legitimate versions, we just ended up liking the demos more. The lo-fi appeal wasn’t to garner cool-points in the Indy world; we legitimately liked those versions better. As anyone who’s been in a band knows, songs tend to change with each performance, but a demo captures a distinct moment that usually can’t be recreated.

These are the demos for "Real Lessons in Cynicism". They are listed in the same order as they appear on the album, and we’ve added a few more for anyone who really wants to dig deep. The text accompanying each song should provide contextual detail.

Thanks.

Soccer Team Washington, D.C.

Soccer Team is an unpopular band from Washington, DC. They are largely ignored by their target audience and pretty much ignored by their close friends and peers.
