A Cheery Choon For A Rainy Afternoon

Post by Citizen Dolly » Fri Jul 30, 2021 5:26 pm

This is the first track of a new EP I'm working on. It's kind of a reggae track (the rest of the EP won't be though - it'll be a series of remixes in different styles) though as usual I totally failed to keep it minimal. Anyway, it's about the end of everything, so I'm sure that'll bring a faint smile to your jaded chops. :lol: :P



Enjoy... ;)

Wow! Nice. Great mood on the vocals. Love the tunage slippage.
Bass is s bit dry. Vox is a bit too buried....and thick. 162 hz notch?

The break at the end is killer.

I agree with Marty, the vocals are a tad buried. I really like the multiple rhythm with with the different synths. Could bring the bass up a bit too to give it an anchor on the lower end. Those are all minor though, cause it's a solid tune! Did you use something on the vocals or do multi takes?

Thanks lads! There's quite a few vocal tracks on this: the main vocal is three different takes, two of them pitched up an octave, and the third pitched up by 5 tones. Then there's another four tracks of little backing bits. I assume they're the parts you mean are buried? Or is it parts of the lead? Come to think of it, I didn't really do much EQing on this, so yeah, it's pretty likely the vocals are clashing with other instruments. The slippage out of tune was kind of unintentional: I recorded the vocals first before I had any melody worked out so I didn't have anything to use as a reference to stay in tune, and the other instruments (the bass and guitars first of all) were all worked out by roughly triangulating on the key of the vocals, so yeah... the tuning is likely all over the fucking place. :lol:

Thanks again for the feedback - I'll bear it in mind when I come to do the final mix. :thumbup2:

Loving the pluck sound in the beginning. Cool vibe when the actual song starts. Nice weird sounding vocals.
It has some smokey bar kind of a feel to it. The ending with the piano, plucks and vocals were nice. Cool beans Dolly!
