Another song by my band the christian science monitors. We are currently on hiatus as we live on different sides of the continent. I hope you like it.

I really like this. It has a Joy Division/almost Nick Cave vibe. What do you play in this one?

I sing and play the numerous layered guitars. Thanks!

Me too. The voice reminds me a bit of Morrisey, who I can't stand, but the song kept me listening. Please don't take it the wrong way, I didn't mean it as a criticism, 'cause there is nothing to criticize about it, you sing it really well and it is a very good song.

Now, don't let distance get in the way. You guys are a good band. The people in my band actually only lived in the same city for about two years, now we live in 4 different countries. It ain't the same, it's a bit slow, but we continue to do music (and I don't have to be in the same room as the vocalist when he takes off his shoes which, believe me, is a great advantage)

Thanks micayetoca. I've actually heard the Morrisey comparison before.

We continue to work on stuff, albeit very slowly. We have a lot of unfinished stuff that will be finished over the next while, but I can't see any new material being worked on at such a distance. In some ways, recording this way is better because it becomes all how things sound and getting the right takes but I often miss the ramshackle spirit of the jamming shared experience.
