Everyone Relies on Time



 Genre: Psychedelic

Get Flash to see this player.

This is a spaghetti western psych song. Much of it was improvised (towards the end), and comes precariously close to falling apart, but we held it together. Didn't dare do a second take, so I threw on some vocals, the spaghetti western guitar, acoustic guitar, and a synth overdub. The synth track on this one gets sick at parts. The Roland SH101 is a truly amazing beast. If you see one, buy it at any price. Seriously. Wish I could find a soft synth that would do this stuff.

Picture Nick Cave jamming with Pink Floyd on the set of an italian western. Like a lot of my psych songs, this one is long (about 5 mins.), but it's not a droney number. This is the last song that I recorded on pro-tools with my buddies.

Mac G3, gretsch guitar amp (on it's last legs), cheap yamaha acoustic, fender jazz bass running through a fender twin cranked up and plugged into a small bass cabinet, harmony rocket guitar with flat wounds, fender tele, there was no fuzz used (that's how the gretsch sounds when you turn it all the way up), cheap mics and rack mount reverb.

fighting words ?
DO i hurt you by saying that the voice somewhat reminds me of Kid A Radiohead singing over a Comets on Fire echoplex. But down with comparisons! I like the way the songs builds up in very dramatic way. fav'd and DL'd.

I really like the way the synths splash all over the strumming guitars. Very interesting artistic choices. I bet the light show was amazing.

Your vocals are really perfectly dark and tend to drag along painfully. They seem so sad.

I like the production and the ending is really energetic and well improvised. I too have fav'd and DL'd.

This sounds delicious. It takes me away, on a nice, dark and halucinating trip. The percussion is very good, fits the song like a glove. Love the guitars, the synth and your voice. The synth tweaking is spacey!!! Loved the connotations I have with it, 60's (freaky) psycho movie. I want to - humbly - suggest a female version of this song, perhaps a woman with experience in her voice, u know...

Two thumbs up

hey there
that's a really good idea. maybe i'll re-record it it, a cleaner version with female vocals would be pretty cool. thanks for listening to my old stuff too, very cool of you to dig into all of this stuff.

Repost this one!!!
This is an awesome song whether it was a first take or not - actually since it was your first take, it's that much more awesome!!! I love diving into your older stuff because it is so much better than a lot of the newer stuff MacJammers are putting out - myself included.

I hopped in the way back machine and found this
very cool track Michael - amazing effects and Felliniisms (if that's a word). The drums are great - kind of martial and carnival at the same time and the bendy guitar is perfect. Excellent.
