boygenuis: After listening to this on repeat a bunch, I think I can find a place for this in my collection.

You almost won me over on the sloth photo alone! I love what you're working toward here - I can really hear it. Really sweet song - keep working on refining those vocals, focus on supporting your voice with breath and getting on top of the pitch. I think a a great mic would make an incredible difference. But seriously, I can totally see myself flying down the road with this blaring through the speakers :)

Umm. Oh my. Well what a great welcome back to Red Fizz - this is why I love this place. Because you find musicians who are unafraid to try anything. A-nuh-y-thing-uh. And this, well, I get that it's a concept thing. But, yeah, I definitely feel like I'm overhearing someone tooling around in their basement. Not a finished product of any sort.

Film Noir on acid. To be sure. Quite the musical journey, my friend!

Oh yum - I love the vocals. It does wander a bit, though, and I'm dying to hear this with better production value (the e-drum kit is killing me). Love how it really opens up at the end. This is pretty great pop.

You two have both said it beautfully:) While arp is fairly dead on in my imaginings of the situation in this song, the inspiration was something more along the lines of what PT heard - not a lover, but a "friend' who once told me that as much as I thought I was a unique and unusual individual, I was really exactly like every girl he knew and I would be so much happier in life if I'd just admit this to myself. A complete #@&%!, and I told him as much. I defnitely wanted the songs to have that apocolyptic dreariness that you both detected, so I'm glad that's working. Thanks to both of you for sounding off on the lyrical content!

Why thanks, arp. I was wondering when anyone was going to mention the lyrics. I've had several musician friends here at home argue over these. Some think they're too vague and meaningless (I heartily disagree), others found their own interperations (some which I find possibly even cooler than what was intended), and others really dug them. So I'm wondering how valid the complaints of the "I don't get it' camp are.

Ha! I was about to ask you to have a sense of humor, SMTF, but the last part of your comment had e laughing out loud, so it appears you have one:) I'm really cool with whatever people have to say on here; your comment just sounded perhaps a little pissed off - hence my joke to lighten the mood. (Which apparently did not go over so well). i do have to say, i'd love to see more comments on the actual craftsmanship of songs (lyrics, progressions, etc). We get a plenty of production feedback, but not much about the song itself sometimes. Anyway, off to work.
Cheers,

Thanks so much for the comments so far. Here's the story on this track - the guy we worked with on this session recorded 4 tracks for us, then as he was in the process of mixing, had a major software crash and is having trouble getting things back together. We've been told all is not lost, but he was only able to give me this unfinished mix for the moment. So your input is much appreciated and will be taken into consideration when he's up and running and ready to finish the track. Oh - and my bandmate Leah would like to interject that the instrument you're hearing is a viola. And you're right - it's a little dry as that's the raw track you're hearing. He hadn't made it that far yet. Thanks for the feature!

Queen? Really? 'Cause I'm hearing definite B52's (minus the chicks and maybe a little more pissed off... about bikes).

I'm with Lurker. From the first strummy measure, I thought i knew what this was going to be, and then that voice jumped in.... fantastic vocal harmonies, genuine lyrics. I love the '"and another thing" lines. Some people try too hard to sound angry in their song. This is beautiful, effective bitterness in the vain of Dylan wailing "don't think twice, it's all right..." My one pet peeve: the pronunciation of "face" with the extended 'c.' I have no explanation besides it bugs me (apologies). Brilliant work.

Evanescence worked because Amy Lee blew us all to the wall. She was a little undeniable even if you don't fall for the genre. This voice isn't quite strong enough to carry the entire song.
