Lyrics
Flat lands through which I drive my being further than me
cold white mountains grows threatening inside of this
black and empty space that surrounds us
sad though always magical badlands

[chorus]
we are just down here
to transform energy into emotions
we are sensations traders
and that’s all

weird times when you chose digital better than natural
where then is your heart if you lie even to your
blinded greedy jealous fearful head
complex toy to entertain someone else

[chorus]
we are just down here
to transform energy into emotions
we are sensations traders
and that’s all

interchange
inner change
interchange

Flat lands through which I drive my being further than me
cold white mountains grows threatening inside of this
black and empty space that surrounds us
sad though always magical badlands

[chorus]
we are just down here
to transform energy into emotions
we are sensations traders
and that’s all

Mike you write these
arrangements that are just so easy to work up! I am sure Nacho agrees. Like you said everything just fell into place on this. A total joy to work with you guys! If it keeps going like this it will not be long before we have a cd finished! Total teamwork!

Thanks Freddy
This turned out really excellent. You guys totally rock. Thanks for fixing the guitar tone. The dynamics of the percussion, the spice of the fiddle and Nacho's great feeling in the vox made this pretty awesome in my opinion.

Another real quality offering, boys. I really like the opening. Everything about the song, the vocals, the arrangement, the musicianship and the mix are top drawer. When are Curtain Call touring Australia...? Must have D/L. Thanks, Peter.

Thank you so much
It has been a great pleasure (like always) to do this song with Fred and Mike. And it is true that maybe is the best that we have done together! Everything worked fine, we are building a band sound. Thanks to everyone for listening and for the kind words. We all are here just because we love to make music, but is great when awesome musicians tells you that they like your songs.

A real stunner!
Well done all of you. Great music and lyrics and percussion and production. The vocal delivery is most unusual (to me, and my ears) so it's a good thing you posted the lyrics, but since I've taken a d/l (thank you) I imagine they (the vocals) will grow on me ;-)

Love the
spicy flavor. Nacho De La Rosa has a beautiful voice and I like his accent here. It makes the song sound more authentic. Spanish would suit it just as well. Freddy is so terrific that he drives the beat and compliments your sultry guitar and bass perfectly. Love it. Thanks.

I couldn't have said it better
about Nacho's accent. he has been embracing and working on his English, but I myself have told him yes go ahead and work on it, but not to try to sound American. He should just embrace his accent IMHO. I am pleased that you feel the same way about it. It actually helps set him apart, and gives it spice. Not a problem for me to read the lyrics. He uses good imagery with his words, and sings with such conviction, and intensity, sometimes it hurts, and we have no choice but to feel it right along with him. He tells me he agrees to just embrace having Spain, in his blood, and to be proud of it. Mike has even suggested that nacho do some tunes in Spanish. So far he wants to work in English. I could not have said it better! Bravo! I read along as he sings with no problem!

finkeldink said 732 days ago (October 27th, 2012)
Yes
I did suggest that Nacho sing this one in spanish. Some of the song has a bit of a Latino vibe to it, but it is ok that he would rather work in English. His accent provides a unique delivery that makes the song very interesting to listen to.

Thanks Chris
Thanks for the kind words. I think in this song I had the gain a little higher on the bass pre (Universal Audio LA-610 Mk II). Normally, I have the settings a bit cleaner.

That means a lot coming from you. Thanks bro!

Thanks Dick!
Nacho and Freddy really made this come alive.
I think that the Martin guitar I use has a really rich low end and a good twang as well. I also use a tube mic and a tube preamp which gives the recording tone quite a bit of warmth.

I still struggle with getting the recording tone just right but it is getting a little better with time.

Hey, great song!

Overall this sounds good. 1. The fiddle could be slightly thicker. Give it some stereo echo or so. 2. The congas completely disappear. I would pan them pretty far out because now they're buried.
