Comments

  • Telepathy is the supposed communication of thoughts or ideas by means other than the known senses. It was a major field of research for scientists during the early 20th century and into the Cold War. [1]
  • Joe Clay: "A garbled, time-stretched vocal that sounds a bit like Vincent Price on 'Thriller' counts up to ten over warm drones. He's saying something that sounds a bit like, "This is quite pleasant", and other stuff that is hard to decipher." [2]
  • Is the telepath instructing us to modify the release's track sequence? Does "up & down" refer to the passage of time? (e.g., This track's book-end, Sundown.)

Samples / Lyrics

0:04 "Testing. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. Up and down, I think." (background) six, six, nine.

0:20: (Second voice) "On repeat. Give me a count."

0:23 "Going to start with it very low, the one on the right and then turn it up, while I'm counting. One... three, four, fi-ive, six, seven, eight, ni- (garbled)"

0:43: (Second voice) "It's too loud."

0:45 "Well, this is quite close to me. Let's play it back and see what it sounds like."

(Second and third voice) "Could I get the one voice?", "Nervous!", "Don't be nervous."

"One, two, three, four, fi-ive, six, seven."

Trivia

In one sequence, the number six is repeated in the background, the result sounding more like "666".
