My home is cold right now

This is a lovely lazy piece; I love the sound of the fingers running the length of the strings, it lends a chilly intimacy to a simple progression. I can totally picture bright winter sunlight illuminating a cold floor.

But I have a question: what is synthfolk?

(Hope your place gets warmer soon!)

Feels like a nice companion piece to "I have dreams of going through tunnels" -- in my mind the protagonist in that song has now made it to their (cold) home. :) I like the guitar layering -- is that a chorus effect on the multi-guitar rhythm tracks, or are they multi-guitar rhythm tracks without chorus?

What a head-bopper. The arpeggio guitar line is a great armature for this baroque watchmaker's tune. Guitar tone and the interactions of the parts are really clicked-in. I could stand a full 6-8 minutes of variations on this.

Yeah, I like this! It's the not so much the (rather nice) "dum-duhduh-deer, dum-duhduh-deer"s as the little appended "deer-deer"s which help break up the whole piece and stop it being too loopy/repetitive. Good stuff!
