Blue Spotted Tail

By Chrisfoo on March 22, 2020 10:54 pm

Talk about speed trash, this one came together in like an hour 15 so sorry for the sloppiness.

This COVID things been pretty wild, I've been working like all day every day this week helping the airline I work at prep to park almost all of our planes.  This is essentially preparing my department to finish the work we need to before we can be laid off too, so thats fun.  But I'm sure a lot of you guys are in the same boat right now, hopefully this will be over soon.

Enjoy the Fleet Foxes cover.

Your voice is killer. Absolutely brilliant job.

Really nice man, as usual! The vocal double/harmony really shines through with simple instrumentation like this.

Thanks man!  But who I'd really like to thank is pitch correction and compression.  Haha, I'm still getting over this flu or whatever (for sure corona virus), so the raw takes were a bit rough but technology is good at covering that up.  Happy I was actually able to sing today though.

Thanks Simon!  Yeah, I'm not sure if you're familiar with the original Fleet Foxes version, but its a super chill acoustic song.  I've been wanting to mess around with a little synthy cover of this for awhile now so I'm glad I got the chance this week.

Yeah killer job on the vocals.  Pitch correction or note, you've got to put up at least a decent performance to get it to sound as good as you did.  I've never heard this song, I'll have to check it out; but you killed the cover as far as I can tell.  This sounds lovely

Yea Foo, these are some crazy times. I didn't get a chance to listen to anyones music last week due to COVID. I was mentally exhausted by Friday. I got to admit, that this track had a calming effect during all the madness though. Your synth work and vocals are just getting better and better each week. The music is so relaxing and your vocals have a certain level of confidence to them. Thats important when recording vocals. Great "speed trash" man. I think Fleet Foxes would be proud.

I've said it before but you have a lovely voice, I think it's awesome that you were able to do this so quickly! I like the synth coming in too smile I hope you will be alright!

Your skill with composition and effects (to pitch correct this in a short amount of time) while having the stresses of the workplace working against you is what allowed you to turn out a quality track. Nice work.

With these vocals, it's never terrible. The background chiptune arps really just make it awesome.

Nice! I've always meant to give them a listen, I'll get on it!

Killed it, beautifully done. The vocals are perfect. So relaxing.

Excellent vocals and the arps just complete the whole song.  Very calming to listen to during these times.  Thank goodness for music smile
