Banjo + Trombone = Awesome? I'd love your feedback on this new project I am a member of (trombonist). Kind of "new wave bluegrass." I hope you like it.

Wow. This works a lot better than I expected. The trombone is what really helps pull it together. I do kind of wish the electric guitar was a little more distorted and forward; it would allow more for the vocals to open up a little more. It feels like the vocalist is having to hold back a lot.

Also, for an unknown reason, I really love the pronunciation of biographer.

The sound has a lot of energy, a nice unique combination of timbres, and is most assuredly a good thing.

Yep, it works fine... but I'd like to hear that unit in a live context. Excellent !

The trombone is tasty. Keep it.

If I would suggest anything, drop the electric guitar. There's something about it in the left channel that feels like a bug buzzing around me ear. Too distracting. Or ignore me and take askmeabout's advice.

Very bouncy. I agree with nicolin that this would be fun to hear live.

I hope this project works out. This song has a lot of potential live for some flashy fills and extended solos from everyone. Possibly even showcase material. Good luck.

Yep, this absolutely kicks ass. The trombone rocks...well, everything rocks. This is quite a joy to hear.

I love, love, love all of it, except the way the vocals sound. I think because everything else is so wonderfully raspy and tinny, the vocals feel a bit like a photo of a person photoshopped into the foreground of a pencil drawing. I would like to hear the same person singing through a megaphone instead.
