Some looseness in the playing in spots. But overall very enjoyable. Definitely peaceful. Reminds me of driving on country roads as the sunsets and there's a warm summer's breeze wafting through. Agree with others that a vocal melody could easily go along with this piece.

Hard to make out the vocals and it's hard to tell if they're in tune. Other than that the guitar and drums sound good. Sounds like a good song structure.

Guitar and vocals sound great. The annoying hissing sound throughout does not. Work on your engineering skills and I'd gladly feature this. Not this time around though. 2nd Stage for me... cause I'm in that kind of mood today.

The ending was very blah like you weren't sure exactly how to end the song. I did like the sample towards the end of the song. Maybe use more samples throughout the song. I think vocals would add a lot to this. Also think about changing your snare drum sample. I thought it need more punch and was a little thin. Other then that this kind of music is right up my alley and I didn't think it was terrible but just needs more structuring and a hook or something for the listener to latch onto. Even with those issues I think it deserves to be heard. 2nd stage for me.

Sorry but I'm not digging it. A little too out there for me, and I normally like quirky songs!

Great composition. I would like the production to be a little less muddy but other than that this is nice!

Dark, dreamy, uncomfortable, hazy. This provokes some interesting feelings! Well done!

I forgot to answer what band was the influence to this! Check out Failure's song called Daylight. They used looks of gear sounding noises and stuff for the intro and outro of the song.

Glad you guys enjoyed this one. I'll give bonus points to anyone who can tell me what 90's alternative band I gained inspiration from for this song.

@pocketsandsleeves - of course the tuba isn't real! I wish I knew a tuba player down the street that I could call over and record with!

Seems like the entire music bed gets ducked when the vocals come in. Clean up that and this would be pretty killer!

Some cool guitar sounds in there. I thought the intro was a tad long but otherwise nice song. Certainly fits the 90s time period! This one grew on me as I listened to it more.

That bass is fantastic!! Really full and warm sounding mix. Nice xylo part. Lots of parts going on in this. Nice composition.
