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.

    What a great percussive tune. Lots of punch and original ingenuity. Some really tasty slide parts. Writing is outside of the box. Great job guys. I thoroughly enjoyed this to the max.

    Cool track, fun and upbeat. Sounds like something made in Florida, has that southern feel to it....and mentions guns, ha! My opinion it's a bit over compressed causing everything to be at the same level in the mix, leaving no depth in the song and a little fatiguing on the ears but in saying that it's a very well put together song and a great effort by all the musicians and participants in the track.

    Well done!

    ahhh, ahhh, ahhh...

    what an outstanding track...amazing band work here with a fantastic vocalist...good to hear 'live' music here in Loopey, between those trap, rap, hip hop flood...:-)

    all my hats of in front of you and the band, sheer brilliance, handshake, Danke

    Reply by CitizenMofo2

    Danke, Danke, old friend. Very much appreciate it. As long as you use quotes around 'live,' then yes. All of this music was actually played for this particular song by these particular musicians. None of it was loops, which is very unusual for me. A group of fantastic musicians - I couldn't have asked for anything better and it's really humbling for me to hear such skill and talent. So thank you for your response and comment!

    I love the moving bassline on this one. Super creative and well produced. I love it at 1:45 when it just rocks out. Ever-changing and building. awesome tune! And I love the abrupt ending.
    You get two turntables and a microphone for this one.
    great Job .

    Reminds me Whiskey Dick at some point. Perfect work at every point.

    Reply by CitizenMofo2

    Thanks, man. I really appreciate that. I hadn't heard of Whiskey Dick and so went and listened to a couple of their songs with their fantastic guitar work. I am in such awe of people that can play like that. I can't. Luckily I can find some great players to do my songs sometimes and make them sound better than they deserve. Thanks again for your comment.

    Great vocalist & the lyrics are fun. Kudos for that. It's definitely "Americana" type rock & roll, which is great. This would sound fantastic being played by a bar band in the right sort of place. Like a "jeans & ball caps" kind of place over a "cosmopolitans & designer shoes" kind of a thing. The track is exceptionally clean & professional sounding as well. So great work all the way round on this.

    Reply by CitizenMofo2

    Thank you. I wish I could claim credit for the great production but I wasn't even there, to be truthful, this is a crew that did a bunch of my songs and I relied on them completely and managed the process long distance. Most of the time a lot or all of the music was an orchestration of loops but this is one of the few times where it was all original music played in the studio. I agree - this should be done in a honkytonk kind of place, maybe with some sawdust on the floor or peanut shells. Thank you for your kind comment.

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.

Description : Hello Loopies!!!

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.
