A cheery song off my new album Out of It.

modern pop rock music that is much better than most modern pop rock music I've heard. clever lyrics, and I like your singing; there is a detached-yet-bright insouciance that shines through.

God, I love this texture. I would really like to get soul-meltingly high and listen to this. I didn't much care for the sparsity of the mix at the beginning, but the shape of the song is such that I found myself suddenly thinking, wow, this is huge! at a certain point. Rock the hell on.

This is really good. Neat keyboard stuff. The first 2 bars made me think of "okay, time to take down level 3 mini boss", but then the song kicked in and I quickly forgot about that.

Another thing that I like about it is that you used a really good dynamic structure. The intensity builds over the course of the track, and then releases in the last chorus. Then we are left to appreciate the melody and fade.

Well done!

very nice, fren! I sense we should work together!

Unfortunately most of my gear is about to be in a state of moving flux, wah.

What method(s) do you use to assemble your drum stuff? It sorta sounds like a mix between real & samples, or triggered. ?

Dobie - what's wrong with taking down level 3 mini boss?? Have some bit shifter why don't ya.

Bitterkitten, I'm confused how you could even think that was in any way either a criticism of taking down level 3 mini boss or the first two bars.
