If you're still confused by how Kicksville operates, The Commissioner sums it up for you: "The Mayor and I are the starting point for most of the music, and we  run most of the business side of things. The City Council is made up of folks who have been at the heart of our creative process - they're the core of the live show, and help out with production and business matters. The Citizens of Kicksville are people who have written, recorded, or worked with us creatively in one way or another."

Notes from The Commissioner
This track marks the first appearance in Season 2 of City Council member, Aya Peard. According to Aya, Touch the Ground is about "...keeping your head down and wits about you.... It's a no-worries song: move forward, follow through, commit, and don't get trapped!"

We started working on Touch the Ground during production rehearsals for last summer's tour, which makes it one of the first songs we were able to write with the City Council all in one place at one time. We brought in Tim Gruber and Amir Alam to overdub some tasty extra bits, but the majority of the recording is pretty much the City Council, giving the track a very "live" feel.

The Music
The song is really built around the bass line - I started playing the progression, and everything else just fell in place on top. The bass on the final mix was actually recorded live (first take, too) as a scratch track for the initial sketch of the song. There might be a few minor clams, but overall the part had such a good feel it didn't make sense to re-track it. And although we've mentioned this before in Season 1, it certainly bears repeating: guitar + E-bow + Filter Factory = seriously hot aural action!
