Wow... Really like the song, man. Thank you so much for sharing.

Hey, if you're interested, I liked this so much, I'd love to give it a try
recording acoustic drums with it... (I run a recording studio based
entirely off Linux, and have been drumming for 20 years). If you wouldn't
mind, could I get a copy of the tracks, to mess around with it? *Great*
vocals, man. Just great. Loved it.

Let me know.

Thanks!

So true.

Recently a friend attempted to lure me out of musical retirement by asking =
me to help mix a record. (It was kind of fun, but, alas, I've lost my t=
aste for the detail work, like cutting and tweezing and trimming individual=
syllables out of vocal tracks, etc).

Apparently the trend nowadays in indie pop is to drown entire mixes in reve=
rb (and use old analog tape, so the mix sounds like you're hearing it t=
hrough thick wall of gauze).

On sparse mixes I like ambience, or if the song's feel calls for it, bu=
t if there's a lot going on in the mix, I tend to reduce the reverb to =
asymptotically approaching zero. That was not what the guy wanted, so I don=
't think I'll be doing much mixing for anyone.

Analog fetishism, on the other hand, has been discussed here at length many=
times, and I don't intend to rehash it. However, after recently listen=
ing to Wish You Were Here, I was struck with how much time, work, and money=
the Abbey Road/EMI engineers put into making analog tape sound as clear ba=
ck as digital can get now-- even the cheapest consumer digial gear today ca=
n get that clean today.

In matters of art and taste, one can't really argue.
