An echo-laden psych rock number! Drums might be a bit loud on this mix but what the heck

Those drums aren't too loud.....they are just way big! I love all the echoing guitar lines and textures. Cool melody. I really dig the chorus!

Love the drum sound (and volume) Steve
Shades of Bowie in the chorus. My usual comment about bass applies, and maybe a little more variety in the drums would be good ;) I reckon this would be a killer song to do live - very nicely put together, and you know I love your guitars and vocals a lot! The lead section sounds particularly good.
Cheers from Oz,

The drums are beefy, just like I like 'em. I agree there is definitely some Bowie going on here, and I'll throw in some Sisters of Mercy as well. Very interesting guitar progression; I like how it's all just gelling together to create a sound bed for your vocals. Good work. Thanks for posting.

good drum sound
great title - (worth checking for that alone) - dont quite get the bowie references that others are mentioning...but the vox are great...agree with jiguma about this being bass light (of course if i got a hold of it, it would be bass heavy in no time)

Far out man!
Great sound. Very 80s but more U2 than Bowie I thought. Just need that insistent bass in there.

Despite the echo and reverb it's a really clean production with some neat playing.

Excellent work.

I really like the lyrics and the dissolute delivery.

Cheers

I hear Nick Cave
Shining through strongly here. That is a damn fine thing at that. How have I missed you for all this time?

I think you

I dig the drums and the Bowie-like groove. Excellent layered guitar work. Very hooky bit of writing. Vocals great as usual. Cool rave-up and dissonances at end! This is fab, Steve.

Hello Steve
That's awesome, it honestly reminds me of DAvid Bowie and Bono for some reason:)))) I loved it, great job! It would be on my ipod!

Ouch!
Didn't expect that opening drum Steve, but it turned out fine; it was the guitar volume against the vocal (which I thought was a little low) that i thought might need a tweak, but who am I.... love the intertwining echoing guitar and the song.... really spacey, regards M

nothing wrong with the drums
Always dig the sweat tone of your guitars and voice. Dreamy and mellow.

Again, great sound.

The guitar ends up being the treat again...
It's interesting how you're using the delay on this. I also enjoy how you get a muscular guitar sound out of what are fairly delicate and chimey tones.... Your lead approach is really distinctive--you are one of those folks whose leads are identifiable sight unseen....

The
drums are nice and up front, not too loud and sounding big and full, just right for this wonderful song.
Really great guitar playing Steve with a nice melody and good use of effects.
Love your lyrics and vocals, excellent work and very much enjoyed.

industrious with the best intention of the adjective intended - optimistic. like
a sky-blue-aura-ed happy worker who loves his work.
