coffee and cake

Description
I used some springclock drums, its mainly about when I used to work in the bronx taking care of deaf mentally ill patients at The Beacon of Hope House I was an on call councilor, I got the job because my parents were deaf and I knew sign langauge, what stuck out to me the most was cake time always followed medicine time, anyway past experience makes for good songwriting I think

I wish I
could use my experience as working for 4 years (and counting) in asylum for old people.I am not very good as using concrete facts of my life in music or writing...
Slow burning stuff you have here Tim.I kept expecting it to explode but i didnĀ“t.
Great tension control!

coffee and cake
just too weird in the timing. i generally eat sensibly and avoid too much junk, but once, maaaaaaybe twice a month i'll allow myself a pastry or some icecream--even if jus tto prove to myself that i like being healthy but not a "health nut." today was that middle of the month i allowed myself a piece of poundcake with butter cream icing along with a cup of coffee, and today was the day i saw your song. the timing was so uncanny i had to laugh. anyway, all that just made the song that much more enjoyable, like you had a psychic connection or somethin.

Food related songs
You are the king of food and music! Love the way the basslines just kind of hang off the beat. Loose and tense at the same time. Excellent medicine.

I love food
Funny how you know there is more than one bass line yeah I built the bass around the drums,
Thanks again smokey

ominous
soundbed coupled with gritty vocals makes for a very engaging piece. I really liked the drums, and the delayed guitar (it IS delayed, right?)

You certainly
got that right Tim.... there's nothing better than 'experience'; it teaches us so much. Another piece full of interesting sounds and it's all 'cake' as far as i can hear.... nothing at all to leave a nasty taste in the mouth, regards M

It does indeed provide good story lines for for quality song writing, as in this case, Tim. Creative use of tension that holds nicely throughout the song. Regards, Peter.

coffee and cake
I agree, past experiences do make for good tunes. Another trippy journey with cake and that cool bass and bottom end guitar. Cool drums ... strange timing. I hope you don't take this in a negative way but on my drive today they played a Wilco tune and I thought it was you. Anyway, another cool tune.

Excellent track Tim
the meandering backing is so cool - and the atmospheres layered in really add to the vibe. The message is pretty intense as well.

wow... what a great song. for starters, the coffee and cake sounds delicious. (hopefully it was).
Those drum sounds are awesome, as is the bass/guitar/synth tones you got. Cool riffs, great singing... Downloaded! This one will go to the iPod...
