We'll see if I can stay awake that long, but if I manage it I'm in :)

Do it! It's a wonderful book. Convinced me to pick up 3 other Pynchon novels and really get into it. And if you're still not convinced, or if you want to hear more about it, check out this podcast episode, "Thomas Pynchon and the American Reconquista."

    After years' absence, persecution by all the predictable authorities, several instances of thoroughly unelective plastic surgery, and a set of geographical switchbacks that would leave you physically allergic to the sight of a straight line, DEATH IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER triumphantly returns with Thomas Pynchon's Inherent Vice, the "counterculture" as a recco map to its own streamlined reconquest, and the same old evil agencies just biding their time, returning on a scale even they wouldn't have dared dream of when they had to take their last little planned pause.

I'm so upset by the name Niceferatu. Mostly because I did not think of it myself.

This sounds nice though!! Makes me wanna make some music too. The one thing I might suggest is chopping up a bit of the static from the Nina interview and putting it under the instrumental between the two samples-- the transition on both ends is a bit abrupt otherwise. (Check out, for example/comparison, how Saba & Phoelix handle the same sample on this Noname track, starting around 1:35).

PS Am I hearing shades of Shigeto?

Same to both of those things!
