Lyrics


Abracadabra... There's Magic in the Air
Feelings, Emotions, Everywhere
I Don't Know, It's a Mystery
Supernatural... Senses That We Share


Astrological... It's Written in the Stars
Someday, Somehow, It Will Be
I Can't See, Out of This World
Phenomenal... Heavenly Guitars

Really appreciate the
really supportive and encouraging comment Michael. Very pleased you liked it. Vocal sounds are dry mixed with various different presets on 4 auxiliary tracks plus ozone 4 on each. Don't remember a bit crusher amongst them. I just play with all sorts until I get bored or really like the sound. Wasn't actually very happy with the sound of the raw vocal so just played around.
Thanks again.
Cheers

very Len, very weird, very enjoyable. the drums are almost out of place but not really. the song and vocals seem snuggle against certain genre borders, somehow. weird. it is kind of entrancing, but in other ways, can't say which, not. I think the drums play a huge role in my perception, those rolling toms, those little guitar riffs. Weird

Alas, it ended....weird, could have gone on for a lot longer

just a peculiar, sweet song

not so weird
creative yes. at the heart of the song there is a nice ballad.

the creative additions and approach take it to a level all of it's own.

After you sang heavenly guitars i was almost expecting a wicked guitar solo. lol

lengold said 2986 days ago (July 22nd, 2009)
Creative is
such a nice word Vic. I was also expecting guitars at the end. I was sitting with the drums/bass/backing sounds/melody for many weeks and just tweaking and tweaking (and tweaking) with no idea at all how to go further. Then the lyrics/vocals etc came within hours one day and I had to post urgently. I was looking for something to rhyme with stars and thought guitars was interesting. Trust me to not then play them... mad eh?

Tribal
and avant-garde. You march to your own beat. (which is good because you have some of the most effective drum sounds I've heard) .... Your work seems to flow from your consciousness without any pretension what so ever..seems as though your doing it for the right reasons. Does that make any sense? What ever. I liked it.

Alternative Rock Genre

Len,

They just haven't invented a genre to describe your sonic excellence! Love your drum sounds (again) and you've got a good voice going on in there - very melodic in places, holding notes, this works on so many levels. I can play this over and get something new each time.

Love those bass notes right at the end...Entwhistle bedsprings! DL'd to add to the growing collection of LG classics.

talk about edgy. talk about dark. talk about strange.
talk about how cool the vocal is in its delivery, its attitude, and its quality. this has to be one of your most unique melodies - and it works a treat. wonderful!

Judy Garland?
Hahahaha. I was thinking Perry Como or Vic Damon or one of those other Italian crooners from the days of yore. On first listen, I paid more attention to the overall sound and composition than to the drums. I thought your vocal treatment was brave in the extreme, and it pays off. Almost sounds like you're intoxicated, which sets the mood perfectly -- some drunk guy going on about "mystery" and "stars," totally oblivious to the dark undertones of the music. I listened again, and yes, the drums sound great. Exceptionally creative piece of work here.
Check out my latest song called UnerSpizm
lengold said 2985 days ago (July 23rd, 2009)
Bloody Hell...
Perry Como... you know I really hated that TV show, it used to make me want to smash the TV, my parents loved it. Having said that I must admit to loving 'Moon River' big time. So maybe you have hit on something here, I am a closet/latent Perry Como and have just been in denial for years. I prefer 'some drunk guy going on about "mystery" and "stars".
I live next door to a pub and was awoken a few nights ago to a bloke singing at the top of his voice to a vaguely known melody 'I forgot the words' 'I forgot the words' over and over. Although I was annoyed at first, it ended up as one of the funniest things I've ever heard.
Thanks for the great comment and laugh.

Drums
First time I've really used the padkontrol properly. Started of with a loop, played over the top of it, then dropped the loop. Seems to have worked out quite well. Also used the padkontrol for the sounds in the background - loaded it up with an instrument instead and then played that. Gave a good effect, I think, actually playing notes percussively.
Thanks for the comment Tim - very appreciated.

Those deep drums are killer and I love your panning of the percussion and other sounds in here. incredible vocals and the overall creative vision of this piece is just mind-blowing. those bits of pan-pipish flute in my left ear are a very cool touch. this is what you would get if you played all the disney soundtracks together at the same time and put a couple going backwards. very cool stuff here sir.

I was a bit uncertain about the drums at first, but I really like it. A touch of Neil Hannon/Divine Comedy. Love the constant pulling of the different forces.
Great.

You've put a spell on me!
Not strange at all, just creative and open minded. Very interesting composition, with an equally interesting arrangement and choices of instruments. Vocals (and lyrics) are intense, very unique way of mastering the vocals. Nice production. Bam! Thank you!
PS. I used to listen to a band from Denmark many moons ago called "Disneyland after Dark". This song has nothing to do with them, they just came to mind for some reason.

this is more like a musical experience, not really a groove to settle into - no, its more like a wild soundscape to explore as it moves around and past you. Some things whizz by, and you want to get a better look. Therefore, a second play becomes necessary.

Excellent blast of creativity - thanks for sharing!

hello
Just listened to your new song and very impressed with the melody and nice touch to in it.However, I am torn between two opinians: first,I think it would sound alot nicer for the ears if it had alittle less drums,and two..yeahh,it sounds good and unusual.SO,I guess I will leave two opinians.
I like this one,hope it gets lots of fans!!!
Good luck all the way and waiting for another one from you.
Love,Bec

Thanks for the listen Becca, I always take notice of your advice - maybe I should do another version just for you with less drums - maybe I will, then you can decide. Thanks for your honesty. Maybe we can do something together next?

I was on holiday so I could hit this earlier. Really like what you did with the drums on this. Wickedly weird and wild stuff.

Dig what you did. Also, very, very nice production.

Always delightfully different
Weirdness is your speciality and trademark (and yes that is meant to be a compliment) but I think you've surpassed yourself here. Some very original textures weaving in and out, and a unique mystique.

(PS I'll have whatever Paddler's having.)

Something was ringing my bell on this, it finally hit me today. Ave Maria. Another good song title could have been "Ave Cadabra"

Dark? Strange? yep, but true to the Len golden explorations... Well done, Len. I think this would juxtapose on Schubert's classic.... Now that, would be strange...

PaulaMunk said 2942 days ago (September 4th, 2009)
Two elements dominate:
Kick-ass drum beat as relentless as the tribe beating their drums before they attack the neighborig tribe..to steal all their women or their cattle, or both..
and the voice of a very seasoned 1950's crooner: Perry Como, Vic Damone..someone like that.. shat, even Johnny Ray, albeit one having a trip on wild mushrooms.
This is the kind of poison that is irresistable, liike those absinthe drinkers that slowly poisoned themselves onto death.
You know it might be bad for you but it feels so good to be bad. Love it. Thanks.
