It has a really fun ramshackle quality to it.  Kind of reminds me of early Beck or something.  Love the acoustic guitar percussion.  I've done that before, but I think yours sounds really good.  Plus who couldn't go for some cheesecake?

Really cool idea for the percussion.  Lol kinda silly vocals but as usual they sound great.  I really like the lowkey way you sing.  Nice work for being quickly done.

Haha damn it. Now I want cheesecake. How did you go about getting your acoustic drums to sound like a drum machine? Im a fan of the tone.

The percussion is totally awesome.

Thanks! Started with the guit percussion and it is basically sliced samples placed and copy pasted... And damn I miss that cheesecake from job cafeteria, and I changed job so I might not see it again.

Merci beaucoup! Sliced samples snapped to grid then copy pastes... A little bit of saturation on the "snare"

Eating CHEESECAKE is fun, so should be playing music smile . I was just messaging Gab Manette and asked him for a special request and he asked for a song about that lovely cheesecake.

I don't have much experience recording acoustic guitars so it was good to try to make the guitar sound ok. I don't have a great acoustic guitar, plus I am not too good of a player but I think it kind of work.

Again thanks a lot for the comments guys as this exercise is getting a little harder now.

Have an excellent week!

Last night before bed I was walking around singing "cHEeEeeeEEEeeeSseCaaaaaKe" to my dog and he was utterly confused big_smile

Cheesecake still exists, thank goodness. And now this song does too, thank goodness. Great guitarplay.

The percussion is great haha, so much fun to listen to. Also on team cheesecake, This track is making me way too hungry.

The acoustic instruments and sweet twisted sincerity of the vocals has a Violent Femmes vibe. Nice work! Now I got to get some cheesecake smile
