About me: 
✎ Edit Kirk Gremlin: all vocals, instruments, and production.

Influences: Low, Ryan Adams, Neil Young, Gram Parsons, Westerberg, Tortoise, Jobim, Charles Mingus, Harry Nilsson, Jackson Browne, Velvets, hip hop, lots of metal from Cinderella to Pantera, and pretty much any electronic and alt-country I can find.
I know a lot of those don't come through really, but they give me ideas, and inspire me to pick up the guitar or sit behind a keyboard.

I appreciate you stopping by for a listen. Hope the day (or night) finds you well, wherever you are.

All tracks are available for free. I will upload some more demos in the future. : )

Is this a two-man band? I like this one. Very boppy.

Great rhythm track.... On another note, I forgot about the shortlinkin... How did you figure out you hacker you? What does it mean 'street sweeper', I'm probably missing the obvious meaning but I'm not on top of my game right now ;)

Also, it's weird because I think the other vocals are 90% as good as this but these are better/good/gooder. Still, I am always like "This track of mine is AWESOME" and then someone else is like "Amateur Hour" and vice versa...!

Thanks man. Oh I think I went to delete it and there was an option that said are you sure you want to delete it or do you want to upload a revised version and I selected that. Um basically just a commentary on our lives at the moment. The road that we’re on is full of hate...we could use a street sweeper to clear all that out and make way for the love. It’s admittedly a silly concept. Yea they sounded fine to me until I listened back on monitors and then I realized oh crap and re-recorded them. It’s not a dramatic diff but it annoyed me. Haha same for me man

Makes sense. "We Can Work It OUT" LennyMack references etc. Not to be "That guy", but I did a song about a week ago and it's an 'OK' recording which also has a similar reference to the MerseyMen: https://www.feed-forward.net/w.7235_The_Paperclip_Song_I_Make_the_Time_For_Y

I used some microtonal singing techniques, just trying to play around with some things. The rhythmic, lyric, and guitar flubs are just flubs, but the vocals are supposed to be that way for the most part.

OK, now the shortlink makes sense. oh, $will always with the golden nuggets ;)

Weird tune -- in a good way -- street sweeper eh? Here's a rube-goldberg-ish piece of cover art for it:

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Gremlin for “The One Who Waits”:
Guitar sounds especially strong -- have you been practicing your scales, YOUNG MAN???!!!!

I dig the effect on the vocals as well. Is this just regu_grem or sleeping_ships?

Haha I have not man. Unfortunately I’ve had the flu, then a sinus infection, and now am dealing with fungal infection due to my wrecked immune system. Just been compiling some recordings for a vault release since I’m not well enough to actually record or play at the moment and this is one I uncovered. This was an intended sleeping ships jam but bandmate felt it didn’t fit with the last album so we left it off. Just been sitting on hard drive til now. I like the herky jerky middle section best. How have you been man?
