Hi Davy

Super polished guitars as ever, and yeah, the Big O meets Van the man on the vocals. Lovely tune, easy listen and very nice all round.

Ha! I'm a product of my era,Derek,though I preferred the warmer tones of Fujichrome.  :D

PaulAds

Thanks Paul,yes it's Logic's drummer,plus I added in a beats loop for extra punch in places. It gave the song a bit of a stomp.  :)

Jamie

Sums it up Jamie,we all do it because we can.  ;D

Mikey

Ta Mikey. If it's the vocals at the end you mean,I did them purposely in the background. Maybe sounds to you like  I messed up? I'm always fiddling!  :D

Love this! Would you mind if I toyed with some additional lyrics for it?

I hear so much Neil Young in your music.

For Kodachrome, vibrant world would fit.

Why don't you take your clouds
And blow away
Stop casting shadows
And raining decay

You're a human Supernova
Vacuum of light
Consuming optimism
Joyless parasite

You're a buzz kill
On a bar high
On an open sore
You're a botfly

Go away pest
Get a move on
Or I'll grab my can of
bug-be-gone

 :D

Just having some fun. I'm off for a walk in the summer sunset. Toodles.

As a lot have said the guitars are great but I actually liked the synths just as much - nice understated break in the middle and they add a lot of texture throughout.  I also dig the effects you've put on your voice a lot. The whole thing has a lot of poise and is balanced just right, nothing too overdone.  Great stuff Skub.
It's all too beautiful.

Title hooked me in straight away - felt very innovative with many different genres mixing.
The overall country feel is so 'not my thing' but I found it an enjoyable listen and it had a certain catchiness and radio friendly feel to it.

I really like this. My favorite line, and one I wish I'd written, is "you're like a sunset, on a rainy day."

Hope it's okay to pull up the oldies. I'm new around here, so they're all new to me. I heard this one when I first joined, but didn't comment.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.

Rock on!
