    Your vocal is def the star TA...like the acoustic guitar you should do it more often...its one of those things you can just stick a mic in front of & play...does have a dark vibe...flowing mainly from that low/fat piano I think...I`m hearing really nice production values all the way...actually the whole thing is really well put together...placement (nice stage set from L to R & front to back)...I don`t mind the sudden end at all...beats that lazy fade that a lot of us (including me) use....I think its one of your best my friend....great job....Ed

    Love that into. Your voice reminds me a little of David Sylvian on this one. 2:40 that sound section is brilliant. I can hear echoes of Bowie as well in this one and even a touch of Bauhaus. really cool stuff. great job

    Hey TA, funeral doom may not be your thing but I'm sure you can appreciate this ending :p https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfOq05Y_vwA

    It's not bad. I listen to a lot of Cradle of Filth and Opeth (seen both of them live a couple of times), so I appreciate dark melodic metal.
    The ending's kinda cool. Loving the solo at 3.27 more :)

    I'm back. You may have noticed.

    "Your input, however hurried, is highly valued"

    Cool but don't forget to answer your older track comments. You have loads that remain unanswered.

    Great title.

    Anyway: intro has changed and is unspectacular but effective. Still not sure about kick drum choice. Too much treble, not quite the right tone with that piano.

    0:52 subtle guitar is quite cool. Before then it's all about your vocal.

    1:12 start of a pleasant little refrain section. Sounds a bit like mandolin but I guess it's guitar.

    2:34 and now drums take off properly.

    2:59 vocal sounds quite different. Different reverb? Lots of good panning on it.

    Overall: good, effective slightly melancholy music that sounds very acoustic.

    Hi Statmad.

    All responses have been answered. I try to keep up with things as best I can, my phone doesn't always show things in order.

    Glad you like the title. I "appropriated" it from a 60's underground art film I saw at uni. I can't remember anything about the film itself, but its title really stuck with me.

    Thanks for your review. I'm still working on the drum sound. Was sort of going for David Bowie's Cat People for the intro. Will keep messing around with it.

    Thanks

    I like it better with the piano opening :p You have a guitar? How come we never hear you play it??!! Oh yeah, love how it develops further. The guitar is a nice addition, as you know how much I love guitar. No download :'( You forgot the disgusting SPLAT at the end, when your brains hit the wall and slowly slide down. Awesome TA!!!

    Reply by toastedavalanche

    Sorry for not allowing download. There's still work to be done. I haven't even added the splat yet :p

    And yes. The first instrument I ever learnt was guitar. I only play acoustic though (the lead to this was played on an acoustic guitar).

    "Written and recorded in an afternoon" - that's the beauty of making songs, you can get that instant gratification. I really like the sound of this. Drew me in and held me. Love what's here but I feel it needs to be longer. Basically you seem to have one verse that's repeated. You could have two different verses, a chorus, and a musical bridge to develop the ideas and music and take us on a longer and deeper journey. Slow songs like to be longer. There's no shame in a 4 or 5 minute song, so long as the variation is there to carry the listener. Anyway, that's what my gut told me when I got to the end - "wait, that's it? But you're just starting!" One man's opinion - hope it helps.

    My friend popped over and said "you're not ending that shit there!". He then picked up my guitar and... well, I'm updating the track now. Thanks man.

    Very nice done ! Great Dakness in it.You shouls start with piano alone,not drums indeed..I first tought about David Bowie's Blackstar..or Lazarus Lyrics
    Fine mix also..

    toastedavalanche
    Reply by toastedavalanche

    Hi man. Thanks for your response. I have now started with the piano instead and agree that it works better.
    As for the Bowie thing, I kind of get the Lazarus comparison. I believe the opening to my song is just half a step up from it. Thankfully I added the 7ths at the end :P

    Even before the vocals began, I started thinking of more recent Depeche Mode works. Then as your vocal work began, the feeling just got deeper! They are one of my all time favorites, so this is comforting to me. The bass styling also brings to mind New Order or Joy Division, but not exactly Peter Hook... since New Order has proven that they can do it without him. I'm not in the state to pay deep attention, thank Jah, but still I could feel the conveyance of the piece, and I love it! Big Fave!

    I love Depeche Mode as well. I've been listening to there album Delta Machine a lot recently, so I wouldn't be surprised if that worked it's way into my sound.
    Glad you like that track. And thanks for your feedback.

    Hm.... It took a minute to grow on me but I like it. I think you should have more of a creeping or anticipating intro though. Still, it's good!

    toastedavalanche
    Reply by toastedavalanche

    Hi man. That's a fair point. Though I wanted to start the song as stri[[ed back as possible. To kind of set up the space, so that I could fill it as the song progresses. Glad you warmed to it though. Thanks for sticking through it and for your reply.

    Toasted yos!

    This is great stuff though maybe it would be better to begin simply with the piano rather than the sparse drumbeat.

    It all comes together when you start singing. Soothing stuff that I don't hear as particularly dark. Mildly melancholy but that's fine.

    I'm in a real rush now but will return to give my customary detail. This 1 minute review will still be longer than many you get.

    Congrats.

Try to tell myself that I am done, that it's all over
I have no other options left, So I guess I won?
Maybe I would feel the same if I was sober?
These little stabs at happiness,
They aren't too much fun.

I feel I might be sober now
I fear It's almost over now.

I feel.. sweet nothing..,

Description : I wrote this song some time ago when I was living in Florida. It's even more true today.

Vocals by Arthur Granquist, guitar by the great Kevin Lysen, drums by Marc Karmatz, also the recording engineer.

The idea musically was to take some rock and some bluegrass elements, mash 'em up and see what happened.

Every day is a struggle to do better in a crazy world.

Description : This is my newest creation, at a stage very near to completion. No third-party mastering or mixing, as with all my tracks. Just have to fix a few tiny things. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO MIX EVERYTHING IN THE SAME SESSION. This song has all human-played instruments - no quantization or MIDI! My brother does all the vocals except for the interlude part, which I do. My other brother plays the rhythm guitar (a Gibson Les Paul Custom - only one of 12 in the world!!) and I play the accompanying guitar (a Johnny Mar Jag and PRS). He has a lot of guitars :P A good friend of ours, Ronnie, plays the bass and another friend, Freddie, plays the drums. The drum track was done in one take (had to use an electric drum set due to time constraints - but acoustic kits are so much better). Overall, pretty satisfied with the result. Let me know your thoughts.

This song was supposed to be a Bedlam Kids track, but due to the low (none) interest of Pete on continuing that project, I'll upload the remaining tracks as instrumentals as soon as I can.

For now, here's a song written almost 7 months ago, it's called Simple Things.

Hope you enjoy it!!!

Description : The first track I sing on. Cheap stage mic & no fancy plugins. Heavily guitar laden to the point it's got a bit of a shoegaze thing going on. I pulled the lyrics out of my ass & yes, they're a bit silly.
