Couldn’t agree more, not a winter person myself.
The song is exellent and totally hip, had me foot stompin’ from the start, the rap is tight and the production feels very “mastered for Itunes”(it’s a compliment) and above all, you’re a lyrical genius. Many, many, many :s

***High Five!*** Winter stinks!

Thanks for all your kind words, Per. It’s really nice to hear the bit about the lyrics… this is one of those songs that didn’t come together naturally. I actually researched and made a long list of reasons why snow sucks and used it to write the rap. Fun fact, I guess. :)

Almost January and still no snow here. Heaven on earth if you ask me:)

The hard work resulted in a very enjoyable piece of music. I love the piano and the trumpet and must admit to have spent a closer listen to the bass after reading your description.
Very well done…

I’m so glad to hear that! Props go to smilingcynic for the piano and trumpet. :) The little bass is a ton of fun to play. Here’s what it is if you’re curious. It’s the size of a baritone ukulele. It’s easier for me to play than a regular bass… less space between the frets. Thanks again!

I love angry, pissed off songs and this is so clever and funny and as cool as … snow (which messes up one’s hair as well. Unforgivable). Your delivery and the lyrics are brilliant. I just love it, that’s all.

Ahhhh… I’m so glad you said “funny” because that was certainly intended. You’re so right about snow being detrimental to hair, too… missed that one! If you throw on a hat- smashed hair! If you don’t cover up- frizz head! (That’s what mine does anyway…) Another damn, catch-22. Thank you for listening, dear Ciggi. I’m so happy you like. :D

Seriously funny rap/hip-hop about something so mundane and natural. I like it. (I also like snow though.) Reminds me of this one.

Thank ya’, Speck. So… you’re one of those, eh? ;) Truth be told, I do find it beautiful. I actually had a verse about that and how sometimes snow emergencies make going to work illegal… so that’s pretty cool. That verse had to be cut, of course. Gotta stay hard-core.

Awesome that you mentioned that song. Are you familiar with Bitch and Animal in general? They were a major influence when I was writing that first TSAN album. They put on a crazy-fun live show. Broke up, but still do solo music. This album is hilarious (and a warning: explicit).

Well I am from Michigan, where you either like snow or you move to Florida.

Came to Bitch and Animal through my damn near adoration of Ani DiFranco. Croquet was the first thing I heard from them. Remains a favorite to this day, but I haven’t really looked any further. (‘Cause how could anything else be as good?) Now I will check out that album. Thanks for the nudge.

Ahhh… Ani DiFranco. She competes with Joni Mitchell for the #1 inspiration spot. Cool, cool, cool. I think you’ll enjoy B&A. Their solo stuff is fun, too- but they were magical together.

Great song in a wide, open and great-sounding mix! I like your voice always, but especially when you sing several voices! Very nice.

Excellent lyrics Kara haha and a fun tune. All snow means to me now is shoveling.

I like the image of “fighting with this song”, it happens, those words are well-aimed :D. I have to say for my part that you’ve won, indeed you are the champion!. I enjoyed listening to the song and follow the steps that are followed with great skill on your part ( Vocals , bass, all ), I also like the sound. really good!

A “funny” true story, I love it.
Very catchy arrangement! I like the sound of the ubass.

Congrats Kara for your innate musical skills - amazing

:D Thank you, dear DICE! I’m very happy you like!

I think you’d enjoy playing the ubass… it’s a ton of fun and really rather easy to play. I’ve been walking around the house with it the last couple weeks. :)))

I love it. Something of the Laurie Andersen about this. And that’s a good thing.

Cheers,

Just excellent,
no more words.
Falled in love with this piece.

(edit: sorry for the little play button,
i’ve been agressive with it, may be 7-8 times ,
i will never do it ,
just to re-listen the d├ębut with the
piano and “singing” together)
A piece of art.
