Abbreviated w/Bud,Particle Dots and Lennon 714

Description
This is an ongoing mess. It originally started out as a simple little Omnichord track, and then I went nuts programming drums, synths and delay effects. Particle Dots gave me the lead vocals, Bud added 1 of the (3) bass tracks, and I threw on a guitar track that Lennon714 had donated awhile back for something else. THEN I asked Five Extra Arms to sing on it (which he did a great vocal track for), but at that point I was in totally over my head. I shelved 5EA's part for the time being until I could sort this mess out, and I will try and do another version with him singing as well as Bryn and hopefully that will be a little different.

When I played it originally for Bryn (Particle Dots), we were thinking Kraut Rock, but obviously it has sort of drifted away from that. Decided not to call it an APOD track as it is, well, I'm not so sure it even needs to see the light of day. But the work ethic dictates that projects get finished, regardless of the outcome. So here it is.

Abbreviated
Honestly, I loved this number just as you sent it to me.

Particle's vocal part totally perplexes me. I immediately responded to sad little phrase repeated over and over.

The grooving bassline and the little electro sounds create a very relaxed moody sound.

I'm here in spirit! LOL!

How can something that sounds so simple sound so complex at the same time? Most importantly it's just sooooooooooo cooooooool!

Excellent mix Michael
It's so easy to get lost in the deep end at times isn't it? Still - this is as cool a version as any and there really is something about this tune that pulls you in. It's great how Bryn has taken off as a vocalist lately.

this is great
you you abbreviated it?

perfectly acceptable mix/version and the work you did on it certainly shows (and pays off)

excellent

thinking about your work ethic comment
at the end of your song notes

we may be in trouble! i think that APOD has got at least as many unfinished fragments as those that we have we have finished/posted

that is one of the ultimately bottom line cool things about APOD for me...there is never any pressure to get stuff done 'now' (except of course when we did the RPM challenge)

the other point worth considering...is anything ever truly ever finished (and if it matters, who does it matter to)?

I can't think of a reason to dislike this on my side. It sounds great, and if you had told me it was a finished product, I wouldn't have thought twice about it. I dig it.

For me has a Euro feel from the 80's which is fine with me
