Pretty nice... thanks for sharing.

Especially after listening to the MBV link you posted, I
think you're pretty close with this sound. (I'll call it
the "guitar" part... even though I think it's a synth.)
Prob. all you need to do is turn down the mids... maybe add
a stereo delay with a very short delay (20-100 ms), and a
different delay time for L/R. (BTW, I'm a guitar player...)

Also, I think you need to turn up the bass and the drum
parts a lot (compared to your distortion sound). Maybe for
the bass part, take off the distortion. This may mean you
have to turn down the "guitar" part a little bit. Also
consider adding a little more motion to the bass line.

The vocals being a little low is fine... but they should
maybe stand out a /little/ more. If you turn down the mids
on the "guitar" part... I think it will help in this area,
too.

I like the reverb on the drums a lot. :-)

HTH,
Gabriel
