The Reason I'm Lost

Get Flash to see this player.

The basics of this track have been kicking around my hard disk for a year. I spent the last 2 days working at it, intending to get a modern indie vibe with chiming guitars and some staccato riffs in the background. I'm not sure I've entirely succeeded and the vocal is a bit rough, but as a start point this will have to do as I'm out of the studio now for at least a month.
Lyrically it's about feeling lost because other people, whilst there in body, aren't in spirit.
Lots of guitar parts on this, all played on my trusty red Ibanez. I've not worked out an ending for it yet either

nice indie pop track. those guitars sound great, make me want to pull out a guitar. love the staccato riff that happens for a second after the chorus. this is a great take on the whole Dinosaur Jr. ethos. great work.

Tune and vocals are really solid and worked to pull me in. I dig the guitars, too.

I usually don't comment much on mix issues but think this could be improved with different stereo imaging--Maybe put bass on left, and spread guitars more left and right outside drums. Right now bass in muddy middle with guitars. My 2 cents.

Good tune! Really like the chorus! Your vocals in the chorus shine. Cool guitars. You're giving Vic Holman a run for his money with that cool guitar layering.

this is a cool tune! nice catchy chorus, the guitar layers work well, and the backing vocals sound great.

I'd say excellent as is, but look forward to hearing take two if you're going to take another crack at it...

Indie rock from the sixties
To my ears this is just very pleasant music of the kind I listened to in the mid sixties. The kind that came out of the UK, not the US. Good harmonies, nice guitars, a catchy tune and lots of enthusiasm. Keep it that way. Per

modern indie vibe
man i love how close the phrasing comes to falling apart but never does. it's the matthew sweet guitar solo of phrasing. i also love that buzzy warm tone you've got on the lead, really nice sound. this is a great little song. happily downloaded - a good sidewalk strolling tune. one of my paddy favorites.

I grew up in the 70's and 80's in the south of the UK in an Irish family. I had always loved music but was never given an opportunity to explore making it for myself. About 10 years ago I bought an acoustic guitar and began strumming in earnest. To d... [see more]
