Landfall

August 14, 2010 10:51 AM

Quiet plucked acoustic guitar and vocals. This song completes the lyrical cycle that includes "My Cirripedian Friends" and "A Brand New Fabrication".

one more day and i will,
abandon all hope for landfall

nine hundred days at sea,
you are real as long as i can remember

so long endless horizon and blues
photographs turn to gray and white

in my mind there's home just over it
and in your mind i am just over it

but that's as good as not there at all
like this song's not a call for anything

i am past believing
and you are past believing

I really like the sound of these recordings—someone mentioned lofi in another thread, and it really does make it somehow. The sort of gentle, uninsistent feel of the vocals and the deliberate playing combined with that hiss all just gels somehow.

sunsings2: heh.. am trying!

cortex: Thanks, I have been always the type of person who likes writing, playing and recording to be as simple as possible with minimal equipment and twiddling. Every time I try to do something "hi-fi" recorded with condensor mics and stuff, I end up liking the rough sketches more.

Very nice. I like the way you play, and I think your singing is quite good. Cool music can always be cooler, and it's always difficult to settle in a right groove, what you've achieved here. Thanks ! (I like your other pieces too, both electronica and guitar sampling).

Gee, thanks for the kind words nicolin. And I really really appreciate you checking out my older stuff as well!

I really enjoyed this, thank you. ^_^

It's sad and sweet.

It reminded me of Glen Hansard on the album Strict Joy.
