Walkabout (Atlas Sound cover)

In which I decide to stop candy butt-ing around it, and attempt to join the reverb drenched, echo cave sound of today. This doesn't really sound like anything I've done before, so I'd love to hear a couple reactions. [more inside]

This is an a capella cover Leah Wilmoth (heard here and here) recorded on my laptop. It's a cover of a traditional folk song, as performed by Jewel. [more inside]
