I love this Track!. Great production work. :)
Very professional sounding recording. Very professional!
Very nice music,great song. Like the combination of vocals and music. Pretty cool!
This is brilliant... energertic, idiosyncratic, uplifting melody and the vocals are somewhere between Kate pearson and Pauline Murray, very infectious. Not heard you for a while, glad I took the opportunity.
Not been here for a while but the work speaks quality.... Love the guitar work and the catchy bassline... Vox are perfect for indie, cool breaks and build to the hook... I could say alot more and it would be all good :-) awesome work...no more to say!!... Thank you for sharing!
I hope to goodness you guys have been sending "tapes" of this to every record company you can find... deserves to burst out of the confines of mp3u and be heard throughout the world!
Great tune. Production is very pro. I really enjoyed it. Got an REM/Indigo Girls vibe going on...
Hey smudgie awesome stuff.
Hi. I really like "lost my destination". In hit me right in my face!! Got its own kick to it...keep on rockin SMUDGIE! JT
Beauty music! I like that one.
listened a few more times and must say very catchy song, can't get the chorus out of my head, love the 70's /celtic thing going on with the vocals, guitar sound and playing is also superb, smooth production, tho would like to hear it on proper cd format instead of mp3, like the spooky whispered b/vox on last verse, all in all brill

cool cool tunage - great energy - good lyrics - everything spot on - excellent work!!:)
Hi Smudgie, Love the vocal at the start of verse 1, the reverb U use is fab. Actually the effects on the vocals in the whole track are great, especially the whispery undertones at 2.45 mins. Great production on this, nice catchy tune!! Well done :)
Nice tune Smudgie, great vocals and that guitar is amazing. Niceone on the number one spot on the chart.
Well Done on the number one spot guys.
Really, Honestely deserved, a belting track.
Great rocky/pop song, catchy and keeps going with nice guitar break, vocals are great, but there has to be a good song to be able to deliver and this does deliver. Great stuff.
wow i like this right from the start, excellent guitar pieces and vocal is more energetic than usual, great voice with nice effects on it too ;) ... kinda has a rock feel, sweet changes and progressions and sounds really professional, Enjoyed ^_^ Rated!!! , Matt
Outstanding! I can't get enough of your sounds. Glad you were nice enough to comment on one of my tracks otherwise I might of missed you.
This is Great, Did I say that this is Great! Everything About this track Shines, Did I say It was Great! really This song is Great!!!!!
Well deserved Number 1 spot. This is great! Very catchy and yeah, I thought it was a high pitched guy at the start lol. Well it doesn't really matter. It's a pretty cool song. I can't find anything that strikes me as wrong. It's well written, has a catchy hook, great vocals, and a good recording as well. You have some woos in there that work real well too. Some nice harmonies in the vocals as well.
Definitely got a rating from me! :D
Toe-tapper. Cracking chorus, loved the woooh's after the chorus. Excellent performance. Easy track to rate. Nice work.
Great intro, and love the build up to the 1st chorus too.
Vocals are fab,and killer melody.
Dig the solo too, very Lindsey Buckingham vibe going on there, excellent. Brother Pete has done a fantastic job!
Solid songwriting, and a great all round pleasure to listen too! Loved it, and thanks for the download too:)
Rate & nom from me.
Great track, intense and powerful! It sure rocks and is catchy and inviting to sing along immediately. Fine lyrics, one of those I can easily identify with; really cool effects on the vocs. Freaking guitar solo as well - love it. Not sure about the exact genre either, but I can tell when I hear an excellent song and this is certainly one. Bravo guys!
Especially like the 'ooh ooh ooh'.
This is excellent, top guitar work and I need say nothing more about the vox as they are always ace.
This one's hot I would say........liked the macho vocal lol......main vox are absolutely fantastic as is the song. Kevin Mooney
A brilliant song allround. Well done. Catchy, interesting and well recorded.
interesting how this track doesn't remind me of anyone :-) totally original i think killer guitar work and really everything sounds good, the vox the words, the instruments all the way around... well done indie rock!
yep, definitely a rock track.... and a good one at that :) nice guitar solo too... rockin and rated.
great tune... easily rated
yeah thats all female
Thanks so much for the comments you left for our music. I just love this song "Lost my Destination" I've played it all morning and yesterday! A++ on all: vocal are cool, guitar is smoking, drums kickin- just a good feeling song!
Music success to you all!

Smudge from Smudgie
The hook is up there with REM. Great job.That's Canada for you full of rock in the mountains and plains. The song is rock in the best way. Really hooky!!
I listened to this yesterday but was too busy on another site to leave something worthwhile. This is up to the usual high standard, infectious hooks and sweet melodies tinged with a hint of sadness.
The vocals are amazing, I love the waiver on "de(here)stination" and the "Woo hoo whooh!" is just superb. You havent lost your inspiration by any means! Even the 'middle 8' vocal section holds its own.
All other instuments are perfectly balanced, and the lead guitar solo is accomplished without being too flashy. This is why I'm nominating this for the charts, as well as leaving a rating my favourite Indie band :)
Enjoyed this, the vocals and production are brill. and some nice guitar playing. Well done! Easy rated for sure. Sonya Stewart.
Great track! Love the acoustic start that gives way to the rock guitar. Lyrically, vocally, awesome! The guitar solo is perfect for the song. The mix is strong to my ears .
Just an all around great song
I love the melody in this one. The vocal track and effects are the strongest point of the song. This is a rock song for sure. I'm glad I decided to have a listen before I headed off to work.
cool stuff, great vocals and really nice fx on them :) cool guitars and over all solid performance and production :) very much enjoyed "as always" one my new favs from you guys :) i thought it was a dude singing @ the start but reading your track description i changed my mind
I would agree that is in the "Rock" genre. Love your vocals on this got me foot tapping!! lol. Loved it all . Full of enrgy.Rated for sure.
G'day Smudgie,love the lyrics, love the guitar, love the vox and loved the way it's put together,Great effort! rated.
This is definately rock...great rock, that is...Very powerful performance...I wouldn't change a thing about it. I can see where some would hear a Bobby Baker influence on the guitar...Hat's off to you...
Take off eh...
Man, what a great rocker you and Pete have put together! Excellent arrangement, a tad reminescent of the 70's music, but this has got a vibe all it's own, you've got style! Points for production and performance, lyrics too, this is an easy rate and highly recommended.
Loved the vox...male and female both, guitars are powerful, production sounds spot on...and I really like the drama in this song, the way you use short and long lines, short and long words to change the emotions, as well as the vocal.Really ace you two!!
Very strong track, everything sounds spot on to me, took off my critical hat and just enjoyed it from start to finish :) Rated
Excellent song. Great vocals, great arrangement, great production, all spot on. Rated.
Acoustic work is great. Vocals are spot on. Very catchy indeed. Production to me is seamless. I am far from an expert in this field but I know a big hitter when I hear one. I know for a fact this will hit the number one spot. Rated without doubt.
Hey smudge... great structure to this one and the lead guitar work is fab. Good to hear you rocking out ;-) Can see this one having pretty broad appeal. Nice indeed.
Catchy as f#ck girl. Nice one!! Excellent lungs on you and some nice old skool rock touches on leadwork and those thick guitar chords. Yeah good song and damn good construction. 1st nom of the week!!!
Get a Tragically Hip vibe from this! Good solid rocker! Lots of energy and like the whispering in the break down! Enjoyed this!
