    also, maybe some pretty, sad and/or heartbreakingingly human musical moments and these would be like epic musical frescoes. like a punkier, more scummy dire straits or less snide, more raw street level elvis costello

    that was awesome and on point. this is like a punk genesis, just form the clash around this, continue them along their distinct and original frameworks and texture them with other geniuses and you will be bigger than the violent femmes, i have little douybt.

    @Sainte Croix: this could also use some steely rusty banjo work, maybe lap steel or hellish shrieking violins or a low sitting cello breakdown. maybve some eerie doubling female voice work too? would bring so much out of the tone with any of those.

    @The Focussed Distraction: Thanks for the music. You should think about posting your lyrics if it isn't too much trouble. I think itd be worthwhile as the are quite good and deserve a singular display so as to be accessed by those of us who love that part of songwriting as much as I do.

    "New Beginnings: Assembly of God" at 2.20
    on October 06, 2012 14:03

    @Damokles: yeah, overall there is little id change about this cut, but my reasons are largely personal and of course taste is always a factor. (this to say, it says and does exactly as i intended for better or worse.) about to go into the studio, however, to record my bands second album, which will be intentionally less cluttered, with more drive and heart. slightly poppy and compared to all work prior, rather understated, and therefore, in my way of seeing it lately, less desperate to impress and more resonant. my style is not one of insecurity however, though realize how and why it listens that way. it has more to do with the reason I got into guitar to begin with, to recreate the sound of a traditional Appalachian hammer dulcimer rhythm on a six string guitar, hence the cluttered, note heavy feel. It really gets the blood going for us irish folk, and that is the entire emotion of "New Beginnings" I was, simply put, in love. The music was meant to reflect that feeling and in that was quite precise from my vantage point. Thanks for you comment though, there isnt enough critical analysis on soundcloud and entirely too much dick sucking. A good, honest critic can be worth thousands of fans in my opinion and experience. Keep Listening! - iSc

    claptony! i love it! i typically find reggae dull, but this is sultry and filled with texture. add one female voice with character and it will sell no doubt. original and well execured.

    this i refreshing, like a less overtoned (brighter) four tet. was going to add that a low hitting vocal register would really suit it, ala the national or morphine, but then the track read my mind! well played! do you read palms?
