Fly Flutter Fall

By CosmicCairns on August 4, 2020 8:00 pm

I hit on a fun little groove and just rode it mostly with guitar and synths.  A little bit of vocals come in at the end.  I just liked the way "fly flutter fall" sounded, but then I discovered it's a little bit of a tongue twister when you say it over and over again. It took me a few tries before I was able to not flub it.

This track is a lot of fun. Love the guitar line. I wasn't sure how you'd fit the vocals in there but they work really nicely smile

Oh this is great. This main melody line, on a synth (?) has a slightly detuned feel that works just perfectly. The mix of the guitar layers behind that is really great, they add an accent but do not get in the way. The chorus like section in 1:40 is very fun. And the vocals around 2:50 are punkish in a way but with the melodies behind, it's such a weird and original mix. I love it!

track makes me feel like i'm not listening to a track in the year 2020, and something more from 1970

I totally agree with this.  The main riff is totally old school psychedelic rock, I love it.

You've definitely got your own sound when it comes to song writing man.  Cant really put my finger on what drives it, but its the kind of music that would score some kind of epic/whimsical adventure.

Fly flutter fall, fear not fair flanger! Super fun track, awesome work smile

August 10, 2020 7:40 am

Great energy coming off it. Did you remember to tune your guitar though?

August 10, 2020 7:59 am

Positively manic! The chant in the end gives it a nice tribal touch. There´s not enough leslie-effected guitar in the music world today smile  A great one...

Great freaky-happy composition. Love how the song gets wilder and wilder. The vocals add so much. I agree with others, that this has a unique sound, more related to sixties or seventies, with a little punkish influence.
Very well done.

Thanks!  The vocals were the last thing I added, but once I heard how they should fit they seemed to fit perfectly to me.

The main melody is played by guitar at first and then joined by a synth.  And thanks for the fraggles!

I may have taken a little trip in the old time machine to unearth this one.

I'm a fan of epic whimsical adventures so that works for me.

Oooh.  I don't even want to try to attempt that expanded tongue twister.  The first three words were hard enough.  smile

Thanks for the reminder.

Thanks!  The effect just sounded good to me so I ran with it.

Thanks!  I didn't know if there were going to be vocals at first, but I ended up really feeling them.

Thanks! It's nice to bring a little wackiness to the table sometimes.

Great track.  I was listening without looking at my laptop and I new it wast CosmicCairns within the first bar.  Trademark guitar and percussion sounds smile. Love all of it but the minimal vocals are the best part. Really fun vibe combined with the chord progression reminds me of the band Madness and then the gang vocal gets kid of punk or oi! Fun fun fun.

August 13, 2020 2:45 pm

That beat is super catchy and groovy. I particularly like the way the guitar sounds.  The tuning doesn't bother me one bit.  Nice touch with your ending vocals too.  Yais i like!

Thanks!  This was a fun one for sure.  And I suppose it's a good thing to have a recognizable sound!  smile

Thanks!  I think I just stumbled on that guitar effect and I really liked it, too.  It seemed to fit the vibe of this song perfectly.

Wow, this sounds like an endless ascension somehow.  Very neat.

August 13, 2020 7:40 pm

Vocals were awesome

August 13, 2020 7:41 pm

I just tried it and kept saying Fly-Futter

Thanks!  Yeah, I was stumbling over it in countless ways at first.  Probably did that and I know I was saying "Flall" a lot too.  But now I think I've nailed it.  smile

FLAILED IT!

LOL!  Also, thanks for picking up my album on bandcamp!  Much appreciated!

I really dig this. It is both weird and not weird at the same. Exactly my level of strangeness.

It's always nice to find the right balance of weird.

That's a quite fun tune. I like how it feels so comfortable, like I'm sitting inside a bar listening to an act. This is so neat.

Thanks!  I would like to hang out in a bar playing something like this I think.

A rollicking song for the fraggle pub. I'm now chanting along! And really, that's not a bad refrain to be chanting in one's home office.

It IS kind of fun to chant it, once your tongue gets used to it.  smile
