orient yourself
hi farhang and bamdad. i love this...it has so much happening. you have put it in the hard rock section....but i think it is much more interesting than that. it's a bit short - did you run out of ideas? have a listen to RP on here (reggie pole)....i think you will like his stuff....and of course there are plenty of opportunities to collaborate. welcome to macjams.....look forward to hearing more of your unique sound.

Coolness
Okay, this is different, which is cool! The track is really awesome, has a lot going on, but isn't overwhelming. Is that you singing/screaming or are they samples? Whichever it is, I like it, adds a chaotic coolness to the song.

Great first post & I definitely look forward to hearing more of your tunes!

Assalom aleykum!
Is that right, not Turkish is it? Should be Tajik. That's some raw experimental rock in a good way. Who's playing what? Maybe bring up the drums some more? I think I'll be watching you guys in the future. Still thought it was a pop love song, tho.

you've made your mark here with this opening number.... I would have liked to hear the vocals clearer really though..... I like the way you spell Squirrel too.... you even put your own spin on that as well, regards M

Orient... looking east from California...
You got my attention! :-) Unusual, this is not a folk or jazz song, I agree. But it is also not quite a "screamo" song, which is good since I don't really like screamo :-) It is weird, sparkly, alluring, and strangely intriguing. It made me smile.
ttfn,
Drakonis

It Orients
I've listened 3X and am getting oriented.
If this song is the first on your album, I happily anticipate hearing what's coming next! I'm into it from the baseline at the
beginning - feeling like one of those people in the photo where there's an audience in a movie theatre, and they're all wearing those old fashioned 3 d glasses... I look forward to hearing your next.

I love a bit of chaos. The main vox is mixed a bit high, in my opinion, and could do with some plate reverb or something. Other than that, killer stuff! I love the silliness you guys put into it.

I had to listen to this one after hearing Fiery Death. This is just bizarre. Where do you guys come up with this stuff. This song reminds me of a madman's funhouse. The only thing missing is the out of tune musicbox winding down in the background.

Orient Yourself
I am thinking that my face needs a bass in order to be rocked off. Kind of Wean-like in it's playful jamminess and lack of any kind of real structure. But if your goal is not to blend in, you are "winning" as Charlie Sheen would say. Keep it up. MJ needs more craziness and genre-benders. Personality plus. My vote: +.

For experimental, I think this is really good. I'd love to see this performed live. The music flows along nicely, which allows the listener to wander through the sounds without being interrupted by drastic changes in the music. I enjoyed this song. Thanks for posting.
