Peter and Leon ...

That's some really cool listening! I particularly like the mix. I prefer the backing tracks to be a little more prominent than many folks do. But they drive this song perfectly and I'm glad you didn't tuck them too far in the back of the mix.

That's some sweet guitar playing and Leon sounds better than ever. Great lyric, too. I think you gentlemen hit every nail right on the head. This song lacks nothing - perhaps a larger audience. Really cool music!

Ok. I'm back. Man, that is a really groovy feel, and a good mix. Well done, Peter & Leon.


Thanks Marty appreciate the comments.

Hi Peter and Leon,

first of all: great feel. Very nice backing tracks and cool vocals - solo and bgv,

Loved the guitar solos, Peter - well, I always do, actually.

Cheers,

Stefan

G'day Peter & Leon
Just had my forth listen . The mistake I made for the previous three listens was that I was rushed and short of time. No - This has to be a chilled, slow burn encounter to fully apprieciate all the subtle nuances on display . All the guitars (RT & Human) blend perfectly and have obviously been assembled by someone who knows his stuff . Great vocals and harmonies round out a fine little ditty that you guys have created.Very enjoyable,well done.

ps I couldn't avoid the - If you leave me ..................... smile

Hi Peter and Leon,

Your song deserved a lot of compliments! It's a nice song with the effect of an earworm. But a nice worm!
I heard a lot of your songs. They all have one thing in common, no two things; the build up gives a (relative) basic feeling. Not much instruments and straight forward. The second thing are your distinctive voices, if you know what I mean with this. I find these very nice qualifications.

But..., I have read Misha's suggestion and I can understand what he is saying. But on the other had, given your style of music, it can be 'too much' to experiment with reverb. But I would certainly try it one time.

Till your next song,
Hans

Great song. I enjoyed my listen but now I have to go and listen to someone else's song so I can get this one out of my head. wink


My music may not set the world on fire but if it causes a glow in just one person's heart, it has all been worthwhile smile

Mesmerizing and memorable tune. It's got its hooks in me.

I like everything about this--the song, vocals, guitar, instrumentation. Nice work!

The sound reminds me of this obscure Australian band...

Excellent sound and performances...the snare splitting across the stereo image was odd but effective.

"Sleep is calling, but I can’t close my eyes..." Oh, dear! Losing sleep, are we? We're talking about the demons of guilt and insecurity and regret taking over your brain, not to mention looking so poorly because of it that people want to get into your business with unbearably prophetic statements like, "Jeez, man, ya' look like your girlfriend left you, or something."

"She’s out there somewhere, wonder who she’s with..." Ouch! This kind of gnawing, throbbing worry-worm can dig so deep into your emotions that it could drive a body to regrettable extremes of behavior.

This is a lyrically powerful song set to music that sounds so good that it washes away some of the despair bleeding out of those lyrics. A good trade-off, perhaps?


Thanks a lot Loren always love reading your reviews.

All the vocal and guitar performances are top notch. And that includes your Dobro.

And the sad but counterintuitively happy feel lyric was excellent. As was the mix.

Fun!

Thanks - look forward to seeing the kitchen dance one day!

We both appreciate the comments (and the jpg).
