Hi All,

I'm continuing my journey into simple lo-fi madness… smile

Anyway, here's something new - this is called Girl In The City.

So easy now

I’m over my head
In this subway car
I’m gasping for breath
I think I’m in too far

So let me tell you girl
Something I can’t forget
I guess I missed you more
Like I just said
I miss that girl
Girl in the city
Yeah I miss that girl
Girl in the city

I’m running the street
In worn out shoes
I’m wearing out feet
I got nothing to lose

So let me tell you girl
Something I can’t forget
I guess I missed you more
Like I just said
I miss that girl
Girl in the city
Yeah I miss that girl
Girl in the city

I’m dazed and bruised
In a world of hurt
I’m looking for truth
I'm on high alert

So let me tell you girl
Something I can’t forget
I guess I missed you more
Like I just said
I miss that girl
Girl in the city
Yeah I miss that girl
Girl in the city

So let me tell you girl
Something I can’t forget
I guess I missed you more
Like I just said
I miss that girl
Girl in the city
Yeah I miss that girl
Girl in the city

Bob,

I love this sound. It is one of my favorite sounds--stripped down, gutsy, jangly, emotional and pure.

If we lived closer together I would say we need to do some giggin'.

smile

Awesome song. It just keeps better with you man.

Hi Bob,

Your songs are always so cool! You have a truly unique style and delivery - and it's captivating! Those drums are something special and the minimal backing tracks have exactly the right amount of fill and not a thing too much. Totally loved it! Love your style, Bob! Wishing you the best ...

Alan

Bob,

Cool sound . . . gravitating, magnetic vocal . . . clean and vibrant throughout. Love how you handle the volume of the instrumentation throughout—all the right touches. Ain’t got nothing else . . . just beautifully done from start to finish!

My humble regards,

Deej

What's lofi about it?
Rhythm heavy and uncluttered is perfect for a song that has good bones.
I still haven't become used to the heavily effected vocal but I'm getting there.

Excellent! Doesn't sound lo-fi to me, unless you mean something else by that.

Sounds like a well written, well performed (that signature vocal!), and well mixed song.

Your music is always just so good, loved this!

Really well done! Nicely catchy and really good progressions on this. The solos fit perfectly, and the tone of the song matches your gritty vocals perfectly. A lot of emotion and sincerity is behind this one, you can tell.

Thanks for sharing smile

Great song, mix, vocals, & production...
I liked the lyrical images... especially...
"I’m running the street In worn out shoes
I’m wearing out feet I got nothing to lose
"
Nice vivid lyrics...
I really enjoy listening to your creations.

Gotta quote DS here: "I love this sound. It is one of my favorite sounds--stripped down, gutsy, jangly, emotional and pure."

That sums it up so well. It defines what we call Americana. This is a quintessential example.

The vocal and the mix is absolutely perfect for the stripped down lyric. Nothing left to add and nothing left to take away.

Outstanding!!!

J&B
