You guys
are great to work with. I think the email updates during this collabs was as much fun as doing the wind fx and vocals. Great turtle shell, Andy, and instrumentation by you and Jim. We are having way too much fun in here. (grin)

Yeah!
Classic inspirations contribute to this fine art rocker. Nice intro. Then it gets trippy, or is it ghostly? Love the slight change up after Roxy's "Hahahahah"...Sounds like it was taken off an old LP. Enjoyed!

Be well all!

they call the wind sirocco
This is awesome you three... I love the music here, wild, loose, and compelling like a sandstorm... great rhythms... the spoken prose, with the echo-fx, was nicely written and whispered-spoken... and Roxylee's performance was excellent, wow Roxylee, I have NEVER heard you singing little Middle-Eastern descending mordents like that before, that was bewitching! Love the wind sounds :-)

As for technical critiques, of course, it is hard to record whispers about a raging sandstorm without perpetual-plosives, but maybe a windscreen would help? :-) And the mix sounded like it could be tweaked a little (e.g. at 1:53, the music level drops too quickly to give room for Roxylee, maybe more gradual fade, etc.)

Overall, this is great, just blew me away! What a nice trio-of-4 you are (where was Maureen anyway? Oh, preparing for guests, that's right!) Faved!

ttfn,
Drakonis

Guys
Great instrumentation and haunting vocals. The only thing I didn't understand was the mix. I know that you had to do it on purpose because you are all experienced musicians/producers, but I did not get the whole effect where it sounds like the song is playing on a stereo in the other room (room effect echo?). I wanted to hear the song in full fidelity instead I found myself feeling as though I was being held away from the music.
Its an excellent song and the performances are great,
Stephen
