Working on an older track, hopefully to improve and get it "done" for releasing some day. Have always liked the melodies on this one. Features some lead keys and guitar from Creatures Once collaborator AM Faulks. This was one of the earlier ones we worked on together. Have tried it slower, and with more and less instruments. This one is a little faster, with newer middle section feature more of his original guitar playing from this session, and stripped back to just percussion. Also added some Djembe, more drums and some vocal sounds. Don't love all the vocals, so buried them a bit, but was fun experiment.
More of these collaborations on our EP here: https://creaturesonce.bandcamp.com/releases Working on getting these onto streaming services soon.

Some great instrumental work and awesome percussion as always.  Are there some fingersnaps at one point?  I think the buried vocals work.  It gives it a bit of a mysterious quality.

Nice track, it's pretty fun to try and follow everything that's going on as I listen to it. You're pretty good at bringing things out and back in at just the right time to keep things interesting. The vocals sound alright to me! I'd love to hear them more clearly!

Interesting track, as mentioned, cool percussions. AM Faulks did great guitars/keys. It works good.

This is cool. There's a decent amount of stuff going on but lots of space for everything to breathe. I love your vocals as usual and Faulks' guitar sounds great. The rhythm is chill but there's still some upbeat energy to it.

Another great collaboration, guitar sounds great, also love how there are lots of different elements but everything remains cohesive, as always cool vocals.

Snappy snap, I think there are some snaps, though some samples, not my fingers. Thanks much, glad you thought it worked!

Awesome, thanks. Mission accomplished if someone follows along wink . Appreciate the feedback about bringing things in and out to keep it interesting. Someday I'll bring these vocals out more, maybe smile

Chill with upbeat energy is a happy place! Glad a little breathing space was felt!

Really catchy guitar line that goes along with the excellent percussion.  Had my feet tapping along smile

This definitely sounds familiar. That guitar is very distinct. This one feels better though, the tempo's nice.
