Generic pop song about nothing, with too much delay.

Very pleasant song. Your voice, in certain parts, reminds me a bit of Katell Keineg, which is no bad association! Thanks for the listen.

Love it, and love the lyrics (maybe a bit ironic, given the self-criticism within the lyrics). Could you post them? Also did you get a new mic?

"'it's nothing you said;
i don't need more time here,'
on repeat.

can't write good lyrics;
they never do come out.
it's always stupid things like, 'ooh ooh,'
stupid pop refrains that will never get to you.

say hi to maureen;
say hi to maureen.

i saw you yesterday."

I borrowed a Zoom H4N and learned how to use the Delay function in Audacity (for a given value of learn). I used the Zoom for the "Little Boxes" cover, too, sans-effects. It's fantastic. I can adjust the levels! There isn't a tremendous amount of hissing! Magic.

Also thank you thank you.

Sounds great. It's bare but has that bit of magic that just makes it work perfectly.
