Let Tijuana Hercules Tell You "The Way It Is"

John Forbes has this to say about the track:

I'm predisposed to the unprepared and the greazy, but every now and then I need to leave the house. Yet, this is a constrictive moment in history: A modern nervous sweat through a 17th-century frontier prism.
The majority of the track was recorded at my Frogg Mountain Studio in Chicago. The percussion resulted from people stomping on metal plates in a four-story-tall freight elevator shaft which served as a wild echo chamber.
I sent the track to a rhythm section I know in Marquette, Michigan, because there's a 5/4-vibe there that's all its own. (I suspect the isolation and natural brutality that is the root of the unique human nature there.) Despite being cut off from civilization at large by sheer geography, Marquette maintains more top-notch drummers and astute musicologists than anywhere I know. A true yaba yum.

Forbes also created this art to visualize all the musicians who contributed to the track:
