    Released Dec 2018? Was it in another form before?

    I hear at least three different guitars: warm jazzy electric, fuzzy lead, classical. What were the guitars and signal paths going on? All you playing?

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    I did all the guitars, bass, and keys. There is the jazzy electric was the Godin Montreal Premier with a 59 and Jazz, surfy sounds, and swoopy distorted parts, were my Music Man, with an Alnico II Pro and Custom Custom. I used a Yamaha nylon string, and a Variax for the acoustic parts. Bass was a Squier Jazz. Mellotrons and pianos were just VSTs.

    Love the slinky guitar lines on the “surf” guitar. Pulled the ear into unexpected places just right.

    I liked the variety of sounds (that I wouldn't have expected in the same song) working together really well. That made it original and very interesting.

    Also, about 3/4 of the way through there’s the big gap of silence. The anticipation was great. I knew “something” was about to happen!

    Oh, that was very nice and breezy! Reminds me of the type of stuff you would hear coming out of Red House Records.

    I liked all the guitar work, but the surfy sounding stuff was a standout. Singer's no slouch either.

    Thanks guys! For something a little different, here is our other single out this month. It uses the same guitars, except it adds a 6 string Adamas and a 12 String from a Variax Acoustic.

    Not the kind of stuff I would normally be into but they're both pretty cool & have some sweet guitar work...especially liked the trade-off between those trem bends & the Acoustic/classical type stuff in the first track..

    The second song is a very solid pop tune, but it doesn't sound as fun to play on guitar as the first. :P

    Actually, it has some fun inversion of the chords, and tricky effects switching live.

    Not my kind of stuff but good stuff. Nice playing, overall orchestration and the vocalist gal has style. What I really dig is the heartbeat groove at the end. Subtle dark touch to complete the story told.

    I don't know if you know me already by forum comments that much but anything softer than Neurosis makes me cringe. The second song is a pop song but it did not make me angry. I'd definitely would not feel the urge to break the radio if it was aired there. Or, if I hadn't smashed the poor thing decades ago.

    Er... You know. Compliments. I was never good at it. I sincerely think these are good tracks and listening them was not time wasted.

    Due to her voice, and the fact that any covers we do (not that many) are from the '30s to the '60s, we always get lumped in blues or jazz. I am closer to a jazz player, although she is closer to a blues singer.

    First time hearing any of your stuff, really nice clean arrangements very tasteful playing well recorded and mixed with good tones overall. Some nice stuff well done.

    Upon a few more listens, I think that the second song is better than the first. :P

    Interesting detail. Not knowing the original songs, I'd completely put your tracks into a contemporary era. A lot of modern touch going on there, pulling towards pop music and I don't mean it a bad way. In the sense that makes you feel absolutely okay thorugh the radio even if you are not into the style normally.
