I think..
it's real.. just caught the camera flash in the eyes would be my guess. Scott's drumming is particularly animated in this, quite busy.. I wanted to really try sub-mixing all the individual drums tracks (11) and I had to wait to have Logic Pro again before I could attempt that easily, and I was very happy with the results. Scott is a great drummer & percussionist, was a pleasure to have him on board.

Catchy lyrics
The drums/percussion is/are excellent, the tune is fab, and the vocals are superior. Enjoyed the listen, thanks.

Hypnosis (in small doses)- dose IV
The concept is really interesting and the results are charming. I love the soundscape you both produce and Scott's percussion shines. Is that you on the YouRock guitar? You are taking full advantage of your new access to MIDI sounds! You should have posted the lyrics :)

Thanks Andrew!
Nah.. didn't use the "you rock" guitar in this.. didn't have it back then.. this was a re-mix to include Scott's contributions- bit more polished and less overall "dull" production than previous. I didn't add or play anything new at all in this version: all my time went into the production and mixing of Scott's 11 drum tracks + 1 percussion track. Lyrics posted! lol.

Dog stare
Scott is a fine element.

I really like this sound bed. I could totally destroy it with a contribution. I FEEL it. Ask John, he'll tear it up with lead

Thanks H
.. as an "Open collaboration" (still in theory.. dose V, VI etc) anyone can who it interests can join in... some guitar work is an option (no guitar in this so far).. might need to be fairly sparse and repetitive to be accommodated in this. Perhaps you & your bro could work on a part for this together?

oooooooo!
well your na na's absolutely do it for me - sweet, simple, enormously effective. the music swirls with a delicious life of its own - and the percussion is its pulse. and yes, i look like your dog now....truly hypnotized just from this small dose. that was a tasty bite of sound, gentlemen - loved it!

Cheers Anne!
hmm.. I think I should vary the bass part a smidgen in future... simple is my motto... though having said that, it took me a while to get the harmonies in this.. I must confess I like the "ha ha ha ha hey" variation myself ;o) Oh .. and it's not my dog .. but if I had one, it would probably look like that...lol.

Hypnosis
Great tune. Was kind of hypnotic, I got lost in the percussion there. Well mixed.

Thanks Pete
Mixing this was quite tricky .. not mixed 11 drum tracks before now.. always learning here. The percussion is great .. easy to get lost in.

i really like your refreshing and different style, was this intentional? i suspect so. this sound is very interesting with a clever build up of sounds. this is something i tend to look for and you have it. i think you are creative and that draws me to your music. love the indian feel. cheers graham
