working late at work this week, plus the usual procrastination left me with not much time to flesh out this idea or mix, but hey it's something

It's more than something. It's a lovely jam. Keep it up!

thanks for that input! you've made me realize i don't think enough about general feel when listening to my own tracks, i get too caught up with the technicals and theory of the harmony+melody

Thanks, hopefully the free time contributed to that. you post some really creative songs, what's the first thing that comes to mind that you think is missing from a scratch track like this?

As a lounge song, it's not really missing a whole lot other than an ending. As a jazz song, drums. As lofi, a high pass filter. If you're asking what I would add to it, what I personally think it's missing, I would have to go with a square wave.

sounds like something that would be in a wes anderson movie or something along those lines.  im really into the second half of the song.  ( great riff in first half no doubt)

Lovely little ditty.  Very enjoyable.

Oooh gorgeous! Sometimes the last minute weekly beats end up being real gems. This is super nice. I love how the second section is contextualised by the first. Feels like a lovely, thematically connected scene change.

Very nice! Quite cinematic in it's own way.

its true, i also find the less time you spend on a song agonizing over small details, the lower you build up unrealistic expectations. thanks for the thoughtful comment
