In June of 2014, a band from San Fransisco named Wreck and Reference released an album called "Want." In September of the same year they released a collection of samples from "Want" called "Spill/Fill."
"Things Will Be Better in California" is an original composition built from some of these samples. Every sound you hear (save the vocals) is from "Spill/Fill." Below are a list of the samples used:
Worst Sample on the Album
Snare: Breakfast Burrito, the Second
Hi-Hat: Dancing coins (delay)
Synth: Coils (percussive)
Stagger to the Podium
Voice Synth: And My Heart Pounds…
Face Separates from Eyes
Bass: A Dull Pain
Ambience: And My Heart Pounds…
Charon’s Cruise Call
This song is not part of the Gentrification series.
The artwork is inspired by (steals from) the album art for "Want."
