So I am searching for Kraftwerk inspired tunes and hit play, not looking at the artist,... player launches,.. I KNOW THIS! What a pleasant surprise 😀. Your friend Binary R ❤️
@G-Guest: A reply hefted into the past by six years: Just wait until you reach track 80.
Ah Someone else who is fed up of the usual mainstream dross. Hope you find what you are looking for.
I like here how certain elements of the track seem to weave in and out of sync with the main tempo of the song. It gives the track this precarious balance, like somebody standing still while riding on a unicycle.
I like the melodic progressions of this. The colorful 'Arpy' synthesizers have an Ed Van Fleet feel to them.
I wonder who SHE is? I can think of a couple ppl, only one is not me...
OK I get it, just refresh the entire browser tab.
Why is it that when I want to start over and listen to this track from the beginning that it always starts from where I left off, even if I go listen to another track, even another album, this makes no sense. Araghhh!! grp
You sound like Bowie in the beginning of this track. This is very interesting listening while playing games. Did you crack your voice on purpose??? love, grp
Brilliant~~ Love G
I'm so confused, but I just woke up but I'm only hearing 15 syllables here, what am I missing, is this a different form. This is G here, if you hadn't guessed.
I wish I could understand the first couple lines of this.
FAR OUT MAN!!!
That last comment was me, by the way.
I'm always amazed by the sounds you artists can create. Great transition into the body of the song. Are lyrics soon to follow? (Not that it needs them... This is beautifully arranged)
This should definitely be grown further
This is the first time in nearly seven yrs that I've listened to Evan and Elle again. I actually listened to all of the tracks. I was surprised that I enjoyed them more than ever. I think I was angry (more than I could admit or be aware of, HA) 7 yrs ago I think, in particular, the idea of taking an entire month to create this album was blowing my mind and annoying me (but I think I was VERY well behaved and considerate regardless) especially considering everything else that was happening in our lives. So a funny observation I have is that I thought I was the Evan of your life but obviously I was the Elle since that's the female, and I AM known as some version of elle in other places around the world of the web. And just for fun I'm not making this a private comment so if anyone else reads it they can wonder. I suppose you can make it private. I have NO clue!
Have been listening all day,.. great while working. Excellent track and looking forward to hearing the rest of the CD when when it's done at the end of the month. Thank you posting!
Hi, this is great like all the influences (kraftwerk, vangelis, Jarre + Tangerine Dream) without actually sounding like any of them. Fantastic piece!!
@Ed: You're welcome & thank you!
@vaisvil: It's an SCI Six Trak. Yamaha CS-series are awesome. I love what Vangelis did with his 70(?). It's all over the Blade Runner soundtrack. Killer stuff.
Cool setting for an awesome poem. Thanks for sharing! :)
Interesting alternate tuning there. :)
That's some heavy-duty office intrigue. Dig the backwards guitar.
Interesting stripped-down version, Reg. Great authentic vocal. You weren't holding Mr. Waits prisoner in the basement, now, were you? ;)
Hey, what are you trying to pull here, mister? I already listened to this on RPM!
Tee hee. Nice one. I'm ineptly playing along on harmonica. :)
But I don't know the words. :(
It's catchy, though.
What's supplying the percussion? It sounds as if it's an old analog drum machine, but played live?
Laughing me arse off. Good stuff, Reg. :)
Brief, but awesome. Lovin' it.
1:46 OMFG. Nice harmonies followed with crazy hoedown riffing! 8) The lyrics are hilarious, too.
Hee hee hee! The band name is AWESOME. Lovin' it. Oh my--bluegrass hip-hop? Could it really be?
I really enjoy the ascending "acoustic guitar" line about 20 seconds in (and all the sequenced falderal which surrounds it). Well, it isn't really falderal--I just can't think of a more suitable word!
This captures perfectly how incredibly creepy falling in love can be.
I keep hearing songs about meteor- or star-gazing after going out to view the Perseids on two recent nights. Hmmm. This song captures the experience perfectly in a decidedly folksy manner; unfortunately, real life had far less of the Venus action going on.
In response to your rhetorical question, not mad at all. ;) I'm glad you did it.
James, why so many versions? I'm not complaining; they're all very good listening.
Oh, I'm not sure those are steel drums at all. What the heck are they? Awesome, in any event.
Good, solid blues! Dig it.
Color me ignorant--I do not know the original. *googles* Oh, it's Clapton. I hang my head in shame! Great job, FDR.
A pleasant "boy lost girl" ballad. Nice harmonies.
