Description
This is our piece for the space race challenge. .... don't know if it fits the challenge exactly...
alternate dimensions ... heaven and hell ... imaginary or real space?
The Groovehounds usually just record live off the floor so this is a different approach for us.
I had the main acoustic track recorded to a click track which we as a band are not really big on as we feel it takes the live natural feel away ... we always just play. This was Donnies first time playing to click and I think it works well for this type of approach and he did a great job. Rob put down a bass track then we went over to Donnies and he played 2 drum takes and we kept the second ... it al happened quickly. I took all the tracks and added vocals and mixed which was a challenge. All guitars are my Godin acoustic electric ... the lead is the Godin with an overdrive and a bit of flange.

Stan Gadziola guitar vocals mix
Rob George bass
Donnie MacNeil drums

Interesting to hear this. Perhaps a bit more like some of your earlier work without the band? Lovely flowing melody and expressive vocal. Good tight bass, and the drums are their usual solid selves, with some good variety, especially during the solo. Love the tone of the Godin, both during the general song and for the solo. The swirling harmonies add to the mood. Beautiful work, Stan!

It gets a little spacey at times
and I think the clouds in your art work swirled a bit, but to me you all sound pretty good here Stan.

Very nice tune. Kind of a departure for your band project. Love the nylon string. The overdriven lead is outstanding. I can't believe that too is the nylon string. Great contributions from Rob and Donnie.

Epic
Perhaps not the standard SRC song (luckily there are no such thing!) but any genre is welcome and this sounds quite epic to my ears. Groovy guitars, as might be expected, and while there's nothing wrong with the singing, my favorite part was the last couple of minutes with the great guitar solo etc.

A very nice addition to this year's SRC collection :-)

Thanks and take care,
Henke

P.S. Had problems posting this earlier today, hope it works now :-|

Unique
for a space challenge, but I like your music. Has an early Fleetwood Mac feeling. Love the guitar sounds. Very mellow and yet with lots of power. Good job!

Hounds in Space! I Laika it (sic). Great to hear a different style of SRC song. And not synth in sight... I get hints of early Neil Young drifting on this fine prairie breeze of a song. The real drums and bass add so much to the recording. You certainly are in the groove at the moment :-) Take care, Peter.

Such a
great song and performance Stan…..you know you never fail for me. I hear that distinctive voice and those mellow guitars and I melt…..yes it fits in with the space theme…..only it includes inner space in those lyrics. would be nice to see the lyrics, but I'll settle for the wonderful sound you give us, (love that Godin sound ) cheers M

space can take on many meanings. excellent song. maybe you guys are not into a click track, however it sounds to me that you guys can pull it off either way effortlessly

You know...
Everything every one has said in their reviews goes for me too (you guys, seriously, can do no wrong, for you three are obviously well trained and creative musicians) but I have to mention one tiny little thing that I thought was a great touch: that sustained "ping" used for the hook. Little things like that, I notice and I appreciate them when I catch them. Great song, a little sad perhaps because it's a song for reflection, and I truly enjoyed it. All around excellence--and the mix was inventive and just plain neat to listen to. Thanks for presenting this to us Stan!

Nice shimmer to the guitar
I like the mood, has a nice melody, everything sounds great in the mix. Vocals are spot on. Not always predictable which makes this shine. Fine job to all involved.

hi Stan et al: what a treat this is! somebody here mentioned fleetwood mac, and i can totally get that reference. (what i totally DON'T get is the reference to "recycling", but oh well). this is so beautifully played and produced - it's always cool to read about the process. as always, i just LOVE your vocals stan! thanks for the D/L!

And a great track it is too
You guys play like a set of triplets. Nice vocals over the instruments and all the performances were on and tight. I appreciate anyone who can play to a click track :). The introspective quality you were going for came through well without getting too heavy. Kudos all round Stan.
