Description
This one's a little dark and experimental for me. Everything but the vocals and end guitar are effected GB loops. I won't deny the Radiohead influence... really into them lately. Best listened to with headphones!

Lyrics
THIS EVENING AFTER SUNSET
I WILL SPEAK TO YOU

AND I WILL TELL YOU
EVERYTHING DEAR
THAT YOU NEED TO HEAR

THEY ARE WATCHING
THROUGH THE CAMERAS
THEY ARE VERY NEAR

ALL THE VAMPIRES
HAVE ALL DIED OFF
IT'S JUST YOU AND ME

WE ARE FLOATING
DOWN A RIVER
WE ARE DRIFTING OFF

WE ARE WATCHING
ALL THE ANIMALS
AND THEY ARE WATCHING US

Thanks andrew
The Snowball always kills. Thinking of getting a backup just in case. Where'd you pick up yours? You got a good deal right?

sounds good
I really like that backing you have. the reversed drum (and whatever else you've got) sets the jam up pretty well.

Killer album art. Spooky as sh*t.

I like the sparseness of this one. Not overdone. Quietly disturbing. The effected loops are decidedly tasty. Cool lyrics, too.

Twist out of the box
This is pretty different from the tunes I am used to hearing of yours. Nice stuff. Your vocal mix is especially sweet. I listened to this several times in a row and it got better the more I found the little bits.

Thanks for the download :)

I really appreciate the multiple listens. there's a lot of subtle things in this going on that you might miss on first listen. Glad you're catching them :)

I'm getting more of a Reznor vibe than Radiohead, but either way, it's vintage Ridd.

Cool percussion going on there.

Great stuff!

I feel I'm being watched...
Eerie, strangely effecting song. The atmosphere you have created is so in keeping with the dark lyrics and the great album art picture. Very creative work. Take care, Peter.

Cool, dark and mysterious. The reversed drums sound like the scrabbling of claws on stone.

concept reminds me of
that weird little dark part in fantastic mr. fox where he's riding out of town and he stops and watches a wolf howl on the hill and there's a sense of impending revolution. really like the little claps and the tambourine.
