Very good! This is almost an exact parallel with my little life. The cats, isolation, everything but the heat; got lots of that. Your vocals remind me quite a lot of Maureen Tucker; She played drums for the Velvet Underground, and would sing occasionally.

Thank you FB,

I am blushing at your comparison…Velvet Underground indeed….and if only :)

This song makes me thinking and I feel what you feel. My soul going to terra incognita, and come back to dirty town.I love work with your song
Autumn, leaves

Narva! I found your song through Old Dog’s remix. It sounds like you two collaborated from the beginning. Great job.

One thing though, I don’t know if you can hear it, but there’s some highpitched noise interference in the background of your recording. This usually results from interference from your computer monitor. Move your microphone away from your monitor next time you record to avoid this. I’m going to give a try with this song myself, because I love the “I’m fine, how are you” clip. It’s infectious!

Thanks for the review and I look forward to hearing your version.

I really appreciate your advice. Unfortunately, the “noise” is due to a corroded interface on our pre-amp. It fell victim to a tragic coca cola accident. Until our band finances improves…we’re going to have to make do. Our apologies. :(

Like all your songs, this has a simplicity that’s great for mixing because it can go so many ways (as teru points out). And under the simple story there’s always the feeling of another level (unless that’s just me getting overcomplicated!)

Thank you again! As for subtext and layers….it’s what surfaces a couple of months after the writing part is done.

Then again maybe it’s just me overcomplicating things. ;)

I just wanted to ask, a question to which the answer is pretty obvious, but I’m not sure, so I will ask anyway. Did you write this song? I want to ask about the “I’m fine, How are you” lyric, and what it means to you. Really love your work, you have a great voice. Look forward to hearing more!

Thank you so much for your kind words, And as for the lyrics, they are all ours for good or bad.

What the song means to us? It changes everytime we sing it. This’s about isolation. Physical…emotional…media enabled…self-imposed isolation. And the simple idea that a lot of pain and suffering could be avoided by simply reaching out to others and connecting.

So…I’m fine. How are you?

Thank you again for listening.

In my opinion this is like what Carl Sagan did for Science. I hope you left notes of your formula of words.
