Really nice stuff.  You're usage of reverb continues to be top-notch.  I like the tape-hiss like sound also.  It gives it a warm lo-fi kind of quality.

Second the comment about the reverb and the lo-fi. There's a lot about this that is beautiful and haunting at the same time. It's awesome.

Lovely piece and I like the drifting vocals amongst the hiss.

I am washed away by the reverb and hissing........... a beautiful piece again.

The texture is great as usual, and I absolutely love the focus on lyrics in this one. Very expressive.

i'm really enjoying just listening to this, i feel like there is not a lot of ambient style tracks here. nice to hear this.

Really pretty and intimate song. I like the way lyrics correlate to the rhythm being played (speeds up, slows down, stops and stutters). Your work sort of reminds me of the electronic artist Leila Arab and/or some of the early maudlin of the Well records (they're a metal band but they have their moments that vibe this way)

I love the way hiss and noise can become such indispensible elements to a track like this. I really enjoyed it.

Beautiful work! Wonderful reverb and processing, and I really like the keyboard arrangement as well.   It descends and drifts gently like an all-pervading mist!

Thank you!!! The hiss is me being to lazy to plug in an audio interface & nice mic - that's what you get when you turn garagebands recording mic waaaay up smile

Thank you - I struggle with that part! Just tried to let it flow & not overthink on this one.

It's already been mentioned but worth repeating, the atmosphere layout in this one is spot on big_smile

Lovely! Change on the horizon is good.

Wonderful vocal performance.

Yeah what they said!  So verb-fi!  Your vocals as always sound so lush.  Well done!
