Description
This song has 2 distinctive parts but a sound that unifies it. I have been working on this for sometime now, trying to get the levels right and the mix down. I think its a good song and I hope you enjoy

A lot of good stuff to chew on here.
Love the scattin' parts, which are driven well by the low vocal track that anchors it. But when the lyrics come in I;m thinking of sticking int in a playlist with some Tom Verlaine stuff. Then again it's got the "head" of an early Roxy Music or Bowie (pre Diamond Dogs). Great drone on the guitars in general. A lot to dig here for attitude, originality grooveability.

Now thats new,. I always get the Janes addiction comparison.Roxy music and early Bowie have been a big influence, Thanks allot I appreciate it!

Like
the guitar riff a lot in this. Vocals being as low as they are work for this song for some reason. Keeps the highlight on the guitar and the swing. Transitions to a more straight ahead beat after that, reminiscent of shattered by the stones. Fun song, enjoyed it!

took my Shabba Ranks name drop... Relic is a cool guy. As cool as this song. This is bad ass. Tons of attitude. This would sound so good on vinyl, if that makes sense. The mix sounds tops in my head phones.

Clean production Tim
Most up-front vocal I think I've heard from you Tim - it works well (maybe you could try this more often). This seems like a real step-up for you - I' not sure that the words "more accessible" will be well received, but this certainly fits those words. I really like this - like all of your stuff, it has a really original approach. I suspect you're probably a pretty original sort of guy.
Best wishes for 2010!

Hey Ive been working on them vocals. My next song follows this mold but it takes allot for me to produce it. My computer is old and I can only go so far with GB, I have logic 7 but I am clueless on how to use it. I think Im just an ordinary guy but my mind could be deceiving me. Hey you take care and all the best in 2010!!!!!

This is a cool overall sound--I can tell you worked on crafting the mix. I like how the song progressed from part #1 to #2: a lot is happening here across 4 minutes!

Cool gritty guitar. The doubled vocals are working well in the mix here and conveying just the right amount of attitude (feels like Jagger to me too). All the parts are sitting nicely in the mix, but the track has a very live feel to it. Nice job!

Hey Tim,

this one is really something special for me. You've got such a rich body of sounds rockin' out.

Your vocals are sounding great and the mix is perfect in the phones. I like the piano parts poking in.

Great job man!

good mix of sounds
I'm catching up with some stuff. This is really good - again it's a good mix of off kilter vocals and drifting sounds. It shouldn't all come together, but it does. Very complex but effective.

Cohesive
This sounds a lot better than the other song that Mr Mason reviewed. The instruments gel quite well here. The vocals are a bit up front. Maybe a tad more delay/reverb? The piano sometimes gets snowed under a little, but one could also consider it to be just another spice to flavour the mix. Yeah, let's look at it like that. After 3:00 it definitely fits the mix nicely.
