Description
Ive recently moved house and been commuting from Lancashire to Cumbria and its involved walking up hills alot - sometimes difficult but a worthy challenge,and this is approximately about doing that.Theres a bit of a chord change there that reminds me of Jeff Buckley but it wasnt intentional.Thanks for listening - Rich!

Plugins: mda epiano,subdelay,vocoder,rezfilter,edirol orchestra

Lyrics
Violet Wine

She slips off that summer dress while I climb
Above the city and my heart is aching so
I have but one desire,but work is never done
Heavy like a loaded gun

I feel those hills of eyes upon me
Stones whispering the names of those
Whose steps I follow now
The Iron axe bores down,our Kingdom to the ground
Our fate written in the stars

We roll in fields of wine and thunder
Rain sweet between the lips you are the women I believe
Can take away the pain,I'll try to do the same
To blow the fire back into life again

The Wheels of industry keep moving
Round and round they never seem
To make enough to rule the world
But you hold it in your hand
You light their shadowed lands
They're crying for the skies you command

Upward
Love the poetic, impressionistic ode to landscape. Actually, it makes me think what a collab between Buckley and George Michael might sound like. I like the electric piano dreamy work a lot. Made me think of heather blowing in the wind, rising up to the stars just beyond the strong and covering sunlight. Had me thinking upward, which I appreciate. Thanks for translating this experience into music for us to share.

An honour to hear from you Tobin - takes me right back to 2004 - still guess i should stop 'livin in the past'!.Yes indeed - those images are spot on,well apart from ripping ones trousers on barbed wire fences that i forgot to mention.the fun bit of the electric piano was choosing which bits to add some reverb and wah to,great way to spend a lazy afternoon.Upward has definately been the theme of the last few weeks,though downward is sometimes easier on the legs

a real treat of a track Rich. Dreamy pulsating bass line, tasty rhodes work and a way cool progression. Your vocals are always soulful and spot on. Nice production to tie it all together.

Neat mix of feels and grooves...
Clean acoustic guitar, bits that are distorted in the main riff, all sorts of keyboard bits, and a really nice vocal sound... All adds up to ear candy... Neat to listen to, interesting on all levels...

Modern Groove
Commercial recording quality, no sketch here. Pleasing keyboard rides and rich harmony, take a bow, this is a very well produced ballad. Soulful vocals as well...

rhodes and roads
Richard,
Like the counterbalanced textures in this, the smoothness of the rhodes the edginess of the saw-toothed synth, the jangly sunshine of the acoustic, the silky warmth of the luscious vocals. Very rich and very seductive. I didn't get the Jeff Buckley influence though, did get Steeley Dan and Mellow Doors-ishness at the end. Dig the heavy beat break at about 4:35. Great cut!

Back With A Vengence
I love it. The solid almost industrial backing overlayed with a bubbling fender and a hint of folk. On top of it all solid lyrics delivered in an original vocal style. Your new home must suit you, all that Thaiwtes's.
