Close encounters of the whale kind? After casing off into the dark and ominous waters of DEEP space a chance meeting occurs with some cosmic travelers. Are they a gentle ancient race of space whales on their never ending travels through the cosmic ocean? The sweet melodious MLB Jam celebrates the successful voyage through treacherous seas to calm waters of the venerable race of cosmic nomads.

I love that this goes into El Paso, perfect 180. After that complete mind fuck they end up in that West Texas town of El Paso just strolling down main street like nothing happened at all. The playing is still dripping with those hidden elements of the far out space they just landed from.
