Description
From "Mood Swings," a CD of entirely original music produced with Apple's GarageBand software. Sobek is independent recording artist from West Chester, Pa. After years playing original music in groups in the Baltimore area, he now focuses more on studio work. His style ranges from folk-rock, to hard rock to electronic. "New technologies have opened many doors for musicians," he says, "but nothing is more important than music that is memorable, lyrics that affect your soul, beats that make your feet move and melodies that make you smile."

Lyrics
Here come the bombs bombs, raining on down
Pushing through the roofs roofs, blowing up the town
Taking away the souls souls, who never did a thing
Looking for the bombs bombs, never find a thing
Take it to Iraq Iraq, finish daddy's war
Run up the debt debt, spend a little more
Dick's got your ear ear, can't think for yourself
Could you do the job job, if he were dead?


We must evolve

Talking to the Lord Lord, got him on the phone
Put him on hold hold, leave the gays alone
Trying to tell us all all, what we should think
He's got his whole team team, pushing out the ink
Religion is the way way, believe or go to hell
You're a bad man man, if you don't do it well
Want to put our cross cross, right on your lawn
Shove it down your throat throat, until your doubts are gone

We must evolve

Welcome to the land land, the home of the free
But that only counts counts, if you look like me
The American dream dream, buy it for yourself
No one else else, keep it for yourself

We must evolve

Unique sound
What a great groove. And your use of GB loops, man this
is what they were made for. You've created a unique
sound in this one that mesmerizes and moves along really
well. Nice interplay of picking guitars. Never would've
caught the lyrics without the text, but now that I see
them, I can understand what you are singing (except the
"We must evolve" which may be the most important
lyrics...) I really like the groove you constructed in this.
Nice.

Unique sound
Ditto to what Tobin said. Excellent groove. Clarity of vocals is so important.
You missed it on this one. Very different from your other offerings, Steve.

Tough to go out on a limb with a political song.
Tends to instantly allienate a large percentage of
listeners. Like loop bias. LOL. I like the rolling
acoustic overlapping sounds. The vocal delivery is
inventive and inspiring. I really like that the lyrics are
fast and slightly buried in the body of this one. The
voices don't always have to be completely
discernable. It's the harmonic expressiveness that
carry this one. My only critique of this song, and a
couple of your others I've listened to, is the endings.
Seems some are abruptly interrupted by the endings.
Can be an effective way to end a song, but only if it
occurs on the right note, at the right time, and in the
right style. Otherwise, enjoying your music. Thanks
for sharing.

On your CD
are the endings cut off too?

Another strong well written song. The vocals work well for
me.

Stevo...
I love your song. It's been my favorite song here for a
long time now. I just downloaded it tonight in case
you delete it.

For starters, I think the way the verses sound is
absolutely frikkin incredible. Great melody. I loved
the thickness of the bass synth, with the contrasting
acoustic drone. The turkish oud was well placed. The
loops worked perfect. Totally great vocals. They were
just so damn good. I wish I could sound like that at
will. Fab treatments on the vocal too.

I tell you we are kindered spirits. We are dipping
lyrics right out of the same stream. You are so damn
tuned into were I'm at musically...it freaks me out.
You've got a very unique sound going though I must
say as well. This is such a great tune though, really.

I hate to just keep saying that over and over...but
damn it's a hot tune. I would love to know more
about your music world. I would really like to have
you check out a song I'm working on called Illogical
Days. It blew me away how much this tune matches
the inspirations I had for Illogical days. I will be
posting it soon here, and have some rough mixes
done already. Lemme know..if you're interested.
Check out some of my tunes here first...you'll
probably hear what I mean.
