Description
This is a song from my band "Theoball" newly released ep "Theoball EP". It is Now available for purchase on CDBaby!

http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/theoball2

We started recording what we thought was to become an album, almost a year ago. The recordings took place in a studio, and our ambitions were higher then our capability. After a weekend in the studio we had recorded som nice songs, but weren't overall satisfied with all the songs. We therefore decided to put that album on hold, and started the recording of an EP insted. This time we were recording it ourselves and not in a studio. This way we felt that the expression of our music came out in a much more energetic way. It seems like that was the right thing to do, because now the EP is ready and it got five songs that we are very happy with.

How did we record it?

We recorded using an 8-track hard disk recorder. Drums were recorded with a SM58 on the snare drum, a CHEAP! Behringer Condenser microphone on the High hat, A cheap samson Microphone for the Bass drum, and a rodeNT1a for the cymbals.

After the drums were recorded in our rehearsal room, Stig and Angelo took the recordings home and started working on the arrangement of the songs. They are becoming a great producer duo.

In this recording you will hear:

Stig: Acoustic guitar, bass
Angelo: Keys, electric guitar, backing vocals, mixing and mastering
Fredrik: Drums
Magnus: Vocals

Lyrics
I wish there was something i could say
The pain will forever stay.
What should have been the greatest joy of all….
Is what made your world so small.

The feelings burn inside you But none of them are joy
You feel like the saddest toy
For way to long time now you have been afraid of death
Is that why youre out of breath


Dont you just want something else?
Something that will make it right!
You say the damage is done
Theres no reason left to fight
Tonight
Or any other night



I wish there was someplace That you could go
When youre sure there is nothing wrong?
The real solutions they are so far out of reach
Common sense is so hard to preach

Dont you just want something else?
Something that will make it right!
You say the damage is done
Theres no reason left to fight
Tonight
Or any other night

I wish there was something i could say
The pain will forever stay.
What should have been the greatest joy of all….
Is what made your world so small

perfect
love that little lead line in the verse and the soloing under the chorus, it's a great combination of loose and tight, reminds me of pavement one minute and matthew sweet the next. very cool. vocals are great too, you've got the perfect indie voice, little bit of weakerthans, little bit of clem snide. really nice song, perfectly put together. Thanks for the DL and i'm going to head over to CDBaby for the rest...

Magnus - really good post!
Your voice is sounding better and better these days - live playing must be giving you confidence and experience. This is nicely recorded and the band adds significantly to the song (as they should). I like the changes and the use of instrumentation - obviously some thinking going on about how the song will sound. I especially like the light and shade you all bring to the song.
Nice mix Angelo - good balance. Like the riff.
Great song Magnus.

so far
reading what you used to create this, I'm a little in awe at the finished product. It shines. The drums in particular sound nicely centered and punchy. Fabulous vocal effort. Glad the home recording route payed such great divedends

It's so good
to have you back in da house Magnus! You and the boys in the band did an excellent job on this. Especially love the electric guitar work...both the sound and the feel. And of course, I always dig your vocals.

The whole package works for me.

Be well friend!

Pro job

the mix sound very good to my ears. Your voice is as good as I remember it .. and that's "top notch". The song is a little "twee" for my tastes .. a kinda pop meets indie-rock .. but not quite gelling quite right for some reason. It kicks in well but somehow left me wanting more. The guitar leads are a little "stiff" to me- like over-restrained, but never-the-less solid performances all round.

this is great. i dig the drama of harder rock style coming in against the acoustic verses. extremely well done resulting in a excellent song. also great vocals and harmonies!

Sweet
For a low cost production, this sounds like a high end mix. The song is ready for release, the only thing I would like to hear is a fatter vocal track. That sweet voice at time is over powered by the band. The harmonies are well balanced . . .

This is terrific, Magnus...
The production is the best yet. Great thickness in the bass on the bottom, and the acoustic guitar has brightness but body...

Your vocals are really strong, and sound professional on the one hand, and pleasantly loose on the other...

The song itself is very strong....

Love that part towards the end when the multi-vocals come in...

You guys can be really proud of this...
