Wow this sounds like Joy Division, have you got Ian Curtis's ghost singing on here? Very groovy though.
very joyful choice of instrumentation and textures and tones ; great pushing of the envelope cheers
Hi Terry, Gibbo and Tomas, Thanks again and again, for all your kind words, I'll try to keep up with all the new songs here at mp3u ASAP!
OMG, Andrew...:)...when the lyrics open with, "I am blinded by the roadkill of your smile..." you know you gotta hang on for the duration :) I liked the vocal placement and treatment...left leaning placement with the bounce on the right...interesting idea...minimal backing works well to start and the build toward 2 min is slow and pensive..the sitar sound adds the mystical vibe over the electronica. cool! :)
A really interesting mix of sounds Andrew, I think I'm getting a bit of Joy Division from this, great to hear the old synth sounds and the sitar is awesome. Thumbs, Gibbo
Very well produced this music, enjoyed all sounds
Hi Phil, Thank you so much, I was actually puzzled about how I actually made the drum parts in this, I might have used the sounds from a Roland SPD-20, but I have no memory of using it in this, the Sitar sounds are probably a sample from somewhere, I like my older stuff than my new stuff, not sure why?
Great integration of the Indian instruments. synths etc. Love, love the ethereal lyrics and cookie beats. Your voice sounding cool on this. Rates frm me sir. - Phil
Hi Keith, Thank you, I actually looked for my scribbled lyrics for this one, but they where no were to be found, maybe some scrap of paper somewhere, since then I've gone back to notebooks!
Actually I quite like the retro sound of this...so 80's...it puts a "roadkill of a smile" on me old mush :-) Love that line! K
Thank you Jet-Black-Brain, I was just going through some older tracks and this one still came through for me, I'll post the lyrics as soon as I find them, and yes, the line was "I am shrouded like a Mummy, I am paper-thin and crying" Another one of my stream of consciousness lyrics!
This has a very retro 80s feel to it.. I'm not sure if that's what you were going for, but I love 80s music so that is no complaint from me!! In places the combination of vocal style and synth sounds recall Depeche Mode.. The chorus seems to be "I'm shrouded like a Mummy, I'm paper thin and crying"? I am a sucker for rhyming in lyrics, so as I listened I was sure you were about to say "I'm shrouded like a Mummy, I'm paper thin and crumbly"... :) Sorry!! I'm not making fun of the song, that's what I honestly thought you were about to say! Obviously your lyrics are more poignant and more befitting a DM song than what my silly imagination filled in. :) Thank you for the download!! Easy thumbs up!! :)
I have been (pretty much) into recording since the mid 1980's, even before I bought my first 4-track cassette recorder (A Tascam Porta-One) I did a few things at a Melbourne based art school where I ran a couple of tape decks, with manipulated sounds on the tapes, just to hear what it sounded like, needless to say it was experimental!
Thereafter I tried to get onto some more serious recording, and tried my hand at steel string guitar songs, I am a left handed person, who plays guitar right handed, so I don't ever need to re-set any instrument, and also the left handed way does not feel right to me, I'm not sure why this is, but it just is!
Recently I have been enticed by all the modern soft-synths and incredible processing availabe to computer aided recording, and I mainly (still) use Garageband when I track, I have tried Ableton Live and Pro-Tools, but I need to learn a whole lot more, the are very intetesting, but I always go back to Garageband, for some reason I find it works for me, and is quite similar to my old Atari ST (running Cubase 0.1!) which I still have, and it still works too!
Anyhow, I try a variety of genre's and I love all electronic music, I also like Ambient, World, Folk, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop....etc
Music is like oxygen to me, I don't think I could ever live without it!
