Coup D état


Uploaded .

Left over audio from “How to Glu”

This one is about power and resistence.. which I find to be quite sexy when I think about it.

Instrumentation: distorted and clean acoustic guitar, swords, tabla, synth, drum programming, clapping, vocals.

Yikes. I'm addicted to this. I just think this would be awesome to perform live. The driving beat,the gentle guitar,the bongos. Got to quit now..really..I'm gonna quit.

Oh. No wonder this song has been "kicking ass" for so long, it kicks ass. I'm going to go punch Jon Kyl in the back of the head.

@ ic42.. I think the hopes of change after a revolution fades out.. so in a way it's kind of a poetic ending.. maybe not though.. maybe it needs to go out with an explosion.. will think about it. Thanks for the comments.. and that goes for all of you! Really appreciate it!

crunchy steamroller. Delivered with a soft snarl. Great music, especially liked the beauty-break in the middle, falling back into angst for the end. However, there is something ironic about a song entitled coup d'etat, which slowly fades out. :-)

Damn this is heavy! What did you run the acoustic through to get that distortion sound?

the excessive guitar layering that comes in at the first switch is awesome, and the switch back into the main chord progression sounds great. the percussion going on really helps keep the progression from getting too repetitive...but fade outs aggravate me. :)
