Alternative artist name: Guileless Contradiction

As I kept writing songs, I realised that some of my songs are written in a quite different way than the normal ones. Their main focus is not on immersion but rather on the exact opposite: purposely introducing a glaring contradiction into the make-up of the song, mostly just for the heck of it.

Additionally, some of the songs, while staying clear of contradictions, still deviate from normal songwriting practices by deliberately doing things songs wouldn't normally do: be extremely mundane, convey nothing at all (and unlike some other songs that convey nothing, not even try to do that).

Reception of these songs has been rather mixed. I guess this kind of meta-humour isn't everyone's cup of hot water. Therefore, I have taken them out of my main catalogue and introduced a new artist name to publish them under. I give you: Guileless Contradiction.
