Someone is reliable but grouchy. Something very bad might have happened. I got my neighbour to play the accordian.

I really like this. I could see this being used in a good movie, during an emotional scene... there is something about the sound of it that is deceptively gentle/simple, but it feels powerful underneath the surface. Kind of like those Aimee Mann songs in "Magnolia."

Also, please convince your neighbor to play accordion on my songs too! Sounds great!

wait a minnit--is this you, BGM?

thanks for the ego strokes, I needed that.
ya, my neighbour is an awesome multi-instrumentalist who actually does stuff with his music, as opposed to me, cowering in my basement.

saul: yes.

well, hello again, then--we've met before, in a manner of speaking. way back when audiogalaxy was still around, we corresponded a few times. i was in a band called tangemeenie at the time; you sent me a copy of the CD with Like Sun and a bunch of other great pop songs on it. anyway, i was just thinking about those songs again the other day, and suddenly here you are. weird. nice to bump into you again, and i hope all's going well.

I really like it. Mellow-funky deep.

Terrific; the phrasing and time sig. are really attention-getting. Sweet.

This is a beautiful, expressive song. Seconded on Miko.

My god, this is mindblowingly good. It bears a startling resemblance to Elliott Smith's work, but it's not at all derivative; the accordion adds a fantastic and unique touch. Great job!
