    The full real saying from some famous poem is only thieves and lovers like the dark. But i used that recently so did a slightly cheat version.

    Ah Yes, but if I had of added those cheezy strings, you would have thought that the shadows had actually written it. Those cheezy strings were just a leftover from the 50s. When the "Ventures" started to compete in this new genre we started to get that Americanized Surf song, and then the Beach boys took the whole thing into doing Nip-ups in the sand. But hey... we love it all no matter who we are or where we live.

    These several years I've been following you here - I wasn't sure if you were "Angelina Powersuit" or "Angel in a Power Suit." Now I am glad to know. Either way, it's a wonderful name.

    Thanks for listening to The Raven. The mix is not finished but generally I put the vocals louder in the mix because...I like it that way! 😁

    There was an after thought of Syria with the lines “were still living here”.

    Thank you for listening / commenting on bleach my bones. There is no specific meaning that I know of, it just sounded good and alongside other words gives off a good vibe. The lyrics tend to get their own meaning when they are finished.

    I like the Earnest Hemingway way of writing whereby each word should sound good.

    I still get butterflies when I play live. Only during the first song, though. After that I seem to settle in & enjoy the music & the experience. That's the trick. Enjoying the experience - whether recording, rehearsing or playing live.

    I've done a lot of improv & live-to-tape stuff. In fact, it's my goto M.O. & it feels a lot more comfortable to me than sitting down & writing out sections of songs (which I also do). I find closing my eyes & focusing on an image or idea really helps. Then I just start playing. The biggest thing I've learned is that what I rationalize as a "mistake" while playing (or listening back after I've recorded) is not really a mistake. That off-note or rhythmic stumble is there for a reason. I might not know what that reason is. But its part of the experience. I see recording as capturing a moment in time. Songs, therefor, are always evolving. I neer play a song the same way twice. And I like that. Thank you so much for your great comment on Shadowspawn. It really means a lot.

    Thank you for your kind words about #27 - here’s a stripped back version with the two ukes, knee slaps, and vocal.

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments on "Our Souls Lament" Mvt I. I will get back to listen to your songs in short order. This Fawm has been difficult so far.

    Long time no hear.... I can relate to your FAWM timeline.. 😀

    Thanks a lot for your nice comments! Much appreciated! There are SO many songs here so I am amazed every time someone take time to listen and comment on one of my tracks.

  • @majordanby  1 week

    Thank you for stopping by and listening / commenting. Yesterday’s Clothes does indeed sound like something else, I just couldn’t get away from it. It was the first two chords that came to hand. It started out with no serious intentions but was great fun in the end.

    Sorry for the late response and getting to your party late: great tunes, just catching up now.

  • @kenficara  1 week

    Hey... Just wanted to make sure to say that I am SO glad you are back! I already listened to your song, but apparently didn't leave a comment. I will fix that. Have fun! Hi there!!!!!! 😀

    Hey...thank you for checking out my second. I vaguely remember the Flaming Lips. I'll check 'm out, gives me something to do 😀

    Thanks for your kind words on my Ricky Martin's Corpse song. I've always seen FAWM as the perfect place to push myself beyond my comfort zone & really try out new things. I guess that's how I ended up writing an EDM song this year. Whodda thunk LOL. Again, thanks for the comment!
