Same Dark Road

It's the same, dark road. The same, dark room.

I love the haunting tone to all your work. The percussion you've chosen particularly underlines the feeling of the piece. Well done.

chococat, not ONE of your songs has left me feeling untouched. THIS particular song strikes me down. My very thin and pitiful soul can only take so much.

I must go pace in my garden now and reflect upon...

Beautiful! Great warm recording as well...

Beautifully mournful. That almost sounds like a kettle drum...?

I waver between wanting to take up a collection to buy you one of those special lights for people who live without enough daylight during the winter, and wanting to withhold such devices from you because they would prevent you from being blue enough to write such a lovely song.

This is really good stuff. Thanks for sharing.

Extraordinary. The recording is so warm and the guitar playing so tight and well captured. The vocal performance is excellent as well -- I've been feeling your vocals more lately. But most importantly, it's another killer song with what record executives (R.I.P.) would call "replay value." If they had any sense at all, that is.

I am actually working on a song at the moment that would sound better you singin' it than me.. :)

this, by the way, is flamenco awesomeness. Your productions are always so lush and tight. Thanks for writing music and putting it here.

chococat, how many talented people's souls did you have to steal to become this talented? I'd wager it would have to be somewhere in the millions, right? Because this song is clearly the product of either one million dark, tortured, talented souls, or one extremely talented individual.

Ah fuck it. It's so very obviously the latter. You're awesome dude!

Lovely. So...expansive.

Yeah, it's that bum-bum-bum drumming that clinches it on this one. Love that!
