This song is so cool! All the different crazy sounds flow into eachother so smoothly. So vintage it's futuristic . . .

You know, that's a good point. :) I realized I'd been slacking and needed to put up some more of the songs I'd been working on - I was asleep at the wheel!

I totally agree with JZC, another awesome 80's-type track! I also liked the little bit of what I think was an Indian flair at the start.

I can definitely hear the Robert Smith influence on this one -- and that's definitely a good thing :D

I would love to hear some vocal harmonies one this track, too!

Thank you.

Thank YOU.

I've really been hitting a stride recently, upgrading my sound, and I realized I hadn't put any of my recent work on Feed Forward. I decided to fix that, because I think these new songs are some of my strongest work to date. I'm completely stoked that you agree!

They are strong! Then again, I liked the older ones too! We're glad to hear you back in the swing of things. Have you brought your stuff into WUPI, yet?

I am gearing up for a big promo period, but have been so busy I haven't had a chance to reach out to many stations yet. I want to send out a ton of letters and copies of The Man Forgotten, and then turn around in a bit and hit everyone with the new album when it's done. Also, I am planning some experimental videos.

It sounds like a well coordinated strategy. Definitely keep me abreast. Make it two, actually...

Good production! I like the bass-line and drumbeat especially. As always, a really well thought through composition, and a really well executed recording. Post production is coming through as well in these headphones.

Stereo, what a concept :D

Who is this young Siren singing with you, or did you just add a track with a lot of effects on it??? Great chords too!

Either way, it's really good :D

Hey, thank you! I really, really appreciate your support - seriously. This is probably the song I'm the most proud of so far from the new setlist for my in-progress album. There's just so much going on. Oh, and the backup vocals in the chorus are all me. To get the higher ones, I shifted the formant of my voice, as well as the pitch, up for a higher harmony. It's something I'm playing with a lot more recently. Glad you liked the result!

Awesome! And I DO like the results. Keep on making great music :D Also, did you ever get to any of your college stations in ME -- I'm absolutely sure they'll put you in the rotation.

Strong showing as usual, Ian. How is your ground game going? Hopefully you're getting your due on the local airways!

Any time I listen to the top 40 radio and then hear your stuff, it reminds me that when you get your shot, your stuff is going to blow up on there!

By the way are you getting to play out live much, if at all?

Thanks, man. I've been working lately on getting some local stations to play my stuff on their indie blocks. WTOS is going to drop one of the songs next week, and a tiny station in Rockland played a song last week. It's slow going, but every bit counts. No live shows yet, but I am considering forming a band if I ever find the time.

Cool. Keep pushing with the local stations. IT's a headache, I know, but keep pushing. I promise you your suff is ready to break, but you've got to make sure to get it out there to these local stations. If possible, visit in person. The college stations, too. You've put in the work on composition and recording, the last push is often the hardest, but keep pushing!!!

This is really fucking cool. I like the guitar tones you got going on in this track and how the verses just go full on 80s. Very nice.

Digging this. :)

I like the contrast between verse and chorus- both instrumentally and vocally. I'm not sure if you've changed the mix since Shoham's comments below but I like the effect/style of the vocals during the verse.

The chorus is hard-hitting.. the way the vocals and guitar groove.. and I like it, but I think I may actually like the style of the verses a little more. :)

Nice piano/string break around 2:15.

Great tune mate.

What's your guitar setup for this?
 Apr 23, 2012, 23:30 EDT


Cool beans, bro. I like the harpsichord patch you're using on this one. Again, a cool 1980's vibe on this one. I really like the style, and think that you're continuing to get even better as time goes by. I wouldn't mind hearing a little more syncopation at times and maybe even a little more variety somewhere around the middle of the track -- some kind of buildup, but I like this tune a lot. Good choice of textures (I guess instrumentation is a good word too). Did you ever heck out k78? Thanks for sharing, -Shoham

I actually haven't yet... I'll make sure to do that tonight :) And I'm actually trying to take a step away from the builds. They are more typical of newer house, and if you look at the music from the 1980's, there wasn't much building. Just a lot of swift transitions.
