Was just checking some reviews on peavey amps and ended up listening to this great song...could listen to songs like this all weekend long. Great job -
This is cool with an occasional nod to a reggae beat. Your bass parts are very pronounced and on the spot and the reggae beat has returned.... Police!
A sense of Roxy Music in this and for a home recording has a very nice present feel Ben. Congratulations on new work after a year long, it happens, sometimes as in my case with another muse coming to surface. I'm glad you returned! Thanks too for your recent listen to my ukulele piece and the kind words.
Hi Ben! Thanks so much for listening to my music and the thoughtful and kind comments on my music. And it allowed me to discover yours! I like the dramatic sound to the guitars on this track. It should be a action movie soundtrack. Excellent lyrics too!
My name is Tim Aandahl
You didn’t go to University of Missouri- Columbia. I’ve been looking off and on for years for a Ben Niven. The one I know plays your style of music.
Very respectable recording! Props to you, man!
Great stuff! You’d all fit right in here in west Texas!
i keep on telling people those little peaveys are really cool little amps...good stuff
What a voice. I get ALL of the lyrics! Relaxed with an tiny bit of an edgy rhythm. Keep 'em comin'
I got here from ss guitar. This one rocks! Nice.
Very nice! Really dig that LO Fi guitar sound in the solo
I wrote it, but I have to say the other three guys in the band more than pulled their weight in the performance of it. It was one of those deals where I came to practice with an idea and WHAM; everybody got it immediately and from there on out it ws just polish and tempo adjustments. Great group of guys to play music with...
Thank you, CV and SS. I don't think I have been compared to Fleetwood Mac before, but it sure played on my parents' hi-fi quite a bit when I was a kid...I must've absorbed some.
I look forward to checking out your music(s)...
Woah, pretty sweet licks here! This is glorious!
SO fing fleewood mac man!!!! good shit!
Oddly enough there is some sonic youth in there also... pretty chill all around....
Cool song, cool mix, nice work!
Love the ambient treatment, tremolo manipulation and combination of swelled vs abrupt sounds. Sounds like a meticulous and detailed composition.
Beautiful singing and great accompaniment!
I’m working my way—slowly—through your songs here and am taken with your clear, precise singing voice on every one. You put that ukulele to good use too.
Also, thanks for your kind words about my stuff the other day; it means a lot!
In a world of what I hear as weird pop vocal affectations, your precise singing clear enunciation is refreshing to listen to. Nice guitars and ukulele on these songs too.
This is cool in the same way that Bill Frisell’s album “Is That You?” Is cool.
Diggin the bassline!
Niiiiiiiiiiice work! Love the slow evolution and build of the arrangement as it goes along. Nice vocal sound and melody, and lots of textures to check out. That sort of whacked-out lopsided tremolo on the guitar sound around 4:00 was cool!
Nice! In terms of textures and space, it's a little like some of Bill Frisell's work. The foreground guitar has a nice, natural, non-piezo-acoustic-electric sound that is appealing.
I am digging your style, guitar sounds and overall mixes; kind of lo-fi garage-y but blues-informed too. Loud, rude, bright and in your face, in a good way.
