Description
Another song for my Blind Dog Sky thing. I'm still on a lo-fi heavily filtered kick, but this one clears up half way through. I used a totally out of tune kids acoustic guitar for this just because.

Lyrics
When the sun resigns
Behind the mountain's side
Then you will be my bride
and we we will sing

We will drink our wine
We will dance all night
The moon will be our light
I'll be your king

Then I'll take my bride
Up into Heaven's arms
We will live forever there
We will be as one

The day is coming soon
When I will be your groom
The Heavens will make room
For you and me

There will be no sadness
Nor hatred or violence
We will learn to love
and let it be

I'll take my bride
Up into Heaven's arms
We will live forevermore
We will be as one

One of...
...my favorite paintings. Spent lots of time in front of it at the Louvre.

Cool tune...I like the lo-fi to hi-fi switch and the way you kept the instruments in there, throughout. And the birdies, of course.

Lyrics are so fine...

Ridd - I don't think I've ever heard a song of yours I didn't absolutely LOVE. The organ in this is positively inspired - you're just amazing guy!

well karen, it's only a matter of time before you do, so keep listening! seriously though - thanks. i like the way the organ turned out, too. i can't play piano at all really, but i can fake it. im not even sure what chords i was playing or if i played them right, so don't listen too closely

One of the
best productions I've heard. Love the lo fi (very authentic sounding) and then the very precise and professional sounding second half.
Lovely love lyrics and great songwriting. Superb musicianship too as always. Impressive.
Cheers

Who Wants A Blind Dog Sky Shirt?
I do!

Ridd, you're amazing. Love the sliding guitar sound and the lo-fi/hi-fi switch like anyone else with any sense at all. You are also one of the most underrated tambourinists here.

Love the lyrics. I coould've used 3/4 of them in my Cloud song with Vic!

You rock buddy.

T-Shirt Guy
I might be the first one because I might be the guy printing them!

Enjoy your slightly broken in Hamlet Machines t-shirt. It hurt me to part with it, but I have the feeling it will heal whatever is ailing you. Is something ailing you?

Thanks for the download, Ridd.

I love slide
This is cool, makes me want to try one of the cheap-o's around here, like the Univox hollow body in my daughter's room.

oh yeah, I forgot - I can't even play a good guitar, LOL

Like I said, this is really cool. Thanks!

Sweet!
WOW! The lo-fi sound and the slide creates a positively awesome vibe. Really really cool stuff. The shift from lo-fi to high-fi is really cool. It definitely gets the broodiness of alternative rock with a roots feel in a way lots of bands tried but often fell short of the mark, which is very impressive!

brother where art thou
you know it kind of takes you back to a bygone era of the 30's (not that I was ever there of course). the small kitchen radio at the beginning blooming into the church of dog sky. break out the hymnals and turn to page 364.

sh*t
Man, the early part recording on this sounds incredibly sh*tty.

Well in a astounding genius kind of way.

The rest is stellar as usual and amazingly crystalline is comparison.

Great exploration and killer song. Nice slide, too.

anthology
The beginning seems straight from the Harry Smith anthology. the switch to a clearer sound, with the organ coming is, really unexpected and effective.

The birds are great,
And the whole tune is fantastic. I like the switch. The whole tune is really laid back and confident sounding. Lyrics are great. I can ponder those while I look at the picture, too.

ridd
totally blown away man. the beginning is great, did you use the radio setting for the guitar or did you do that with EQ? aside from the awesome production chops you always display, this is just a great song. wish it had gone on longer. really great track man, stand up and be proud.

I know
I just said it, but I love when you bring it down like this. Don't get me wrong, "In My Head Again" is still one of the top rock tunes of 2008. Whatever you do, you do well. Thanks for sharing your talent with us!

Another awesome tune, Ridd. I love the beginning of this one and then the transition into the full sound. Great lyrics, great instrumentation. Pretty much what everyone else has said!

Divine
This is fab. Not sure why you used an alternative spelling for divine, tho. When you voice comes in clear, it is like the heavens open up and the light shines down. Another conceptually breathtaking moment. Well done.

Anyone who hears this tune is a better person for it.
I completely understand why you'd use the "kid" guitar -- it imparts a sweet-and-sour tone. I like everything about this tune, it just plays, and fits, in the pocket. I'm completely with Tobin on this one. And speaking of being in good company: It's an honor to have my comment on the same page as this song.
