Stoner rock song triggered by doodling with Steinberg's free Nanologue synth on an iPad Mini through IAA (Inter-App Audio) from within Garageband. Quickly started jamming with Garageband's guitars (riffs and lead), then added drums. Final mastering with AudioMastering.Artist's website: https://soundcloud.com/bad-maxton
