Description
This is a song I started working on this morning (which means I once again put pleasure in front of REAL work)... Anyway, not much to say about this one really, it is still a sketch... Like always, I am trying to communicate something (read the lyrics)...

This is a song made upon both loops and real instruments. The real instruments are much more present, while the loops are (hopefully) nicely embedded to the mix.

There are a few guitar scores on this one, as well vocals of course.

Thanks for listening!!!

Very tidy and well pressed
I think this is the best production on any of your tracks to
date. Great mix. I got a kick out of the whole package: the
art, the lyrics, the backing vocals, the neatnik organization
of the stanzas. I really like when songs have a tight
concept, and this delivers. An anthem worthy of my old
haunt in the West Village. Smiles all around. Good track.

It's all about the concept
Thanks you Tobin, as always your comments are very
much appreciated. I am glad you notice the production
value as well, although I am an artist that are rarely given
myself the time to produce and mix - and rather chose to
express - I am also getting a better understanding of my
tools. The production itself has always been a hurdle, a
wall between what I want to express, and what I am not
able to express. Like the Berlin Wall, I am looking to tear
it down, piece by piece.

I am in a great musical moment right now - where I am
discovering new music styles, but also are finding ways to
bring other art forms into my music...

Thanks for listening!!!

great!
I was thinking it would be cool to have something in there about James Brown, since this is like the answer song to "It's a Man's Man's Man's World", and songs where you list things or names are really cool. Very good production!
