Lyrics
I am not the kind of man
that you have come to know

I am very different
when judging eyes are closed

You would not like who I am
when conscience burrows deep

When everything is meaningless
it's treasures that I seek

So bear with me as I collide
with broken thoughts of suicide

Hey thanks. Glad you like. I find Lo-fi makes you focus more on the music instead of all the bells and whistled of a fully produced mix. I dig it a lot.

thankya! Not currently playing outside of my basement, no. Been really busy with work. I'm hoping that will change in the fall though - at which point I'll attempt to get the boys back together for practice. I'll keep ya posted

works for me
i like your lo fi stuff. you're a real child of grunge, not the blown up bit of it but the 'band playing for friends in the basement' aspect, we're a naval gazing angsty society and grunge was such a nice outlet. do you remember that feeling in the mosh pit, that quiet, calm center as you crashed into everyone? that calm was always at the heart of grunge, and you've captured it just right here. i like it a lot.

Suicide
Somebody told me not to say that word in public in this country or you could end up going to the lunatic house. This is liberating.
Lo-fi, but the energy it's all there. Great idea of using the guitar at that freq range so the vox goes through nicely (I think I will steal that). Love the touch of the tambourin. Love the bridge too.

Ah yes
some U2 moments in the guitar and sort of laid back late 60's early 70's psychodelia in the lyrics and vox.....it definitely grows on you,like a Norwegian wood...........wait a minute .....ah yes a bit 70's Beatlesy.....nice job ..

wonderful song
The only issue I have with the song is that I'd not call it "lo fi" at all... in fact I think it is one of the better produced songs I've heard here in quite some time. Sometimes 'simple' is actually harder to mix than complex... and I think you've done a great job carving out frequencies so that everything shines through nicely. wonderful 'up front' vocals.

i hear ya, but it's definitely lo-fi by my usual standards. was pretty liberating to leave it this rough. glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the comments

Stripped down guitar/vocal works really well. Angst themed lyric is driven home by the long phrases in the vocal. Hope you get time for a second verse!

This is lo-fi? It may be sparse but I don't think it's lo-fi. Great song in need of no elaborate production!

Great as ever
... Ridd you always nail any sound you reach for. Love the chorus with its dropping melody and screamed backing vox. Top class 90's musical stylings with lush yet lofi production. Great stuff man.

This begs for a hi-fi version. Stereophonic sound. The works. Huge and panoramic in scope, all achieved with one acoustic, one tambourine and a couple vocal tracks. Well done. Taking notes.
