Fortunately I live in the 'exciting' part of Australia, so there's usually things happening. I wouldn't call Aussie life boring, but there are problems (fairly minor ones, though).

Sorry man! I'll reply today for sure, though now I'm kind of busy (I am at work in the morning only, then I'll take the rest of the day off to have doctors' appointments etc.)

New album? Hmmm, that's gonna be tough - I have like 2 tracks ready, the rest is half-assed. And no time at hand.

i'm sorry it's taken me a while, i was swamped and without a method (i've reinstituted pomodoros, a life-saver), and we had a death in the family and all kinds of things but i'm giving your tracks some dedication now, and i've listened to the first one a few times: EXPO 80

so, first of all, i looooooooove the sound of the synthesizer, sounds like something very 70s, vangelis, or something. that fat analog sound, with a slight bit of reverb, that's just fantastic, fantastic. i love that loop and the way it fills the air.

you said treat them like demos and so i found 2 problems for me:

1) the voice of the (australian? australians?) is hard to tell what's he's saying. and so instead of hearing some and then forgetting, the brain tries to figure out what is going on. i listened to this with alone and with my wife, and she's a native english speaker, so it might be the level or something. personally, i don't prefer his voice, it sort of clashes.

i do love the static over the voice though, which for me comes across as a homage to daydream nation's "providence", except that it's not watt telling thurston about his lost weed (i heard that's what that was about) but instead it's some aussie saying something.

with that in mind i do wonder if the fans of your music would know who that guy is and what he's saying? but the vibe i get from him is not pleasant. don't mean to rag on the guy but not knowing what he's saying and his tone of voice makes me a little "nervous" in a way. don't know if that's the mood you want with it.


Oh, dude, wow! This reply is just fantastic and really thorough. Thanks a bunch for this feedback and sorry I had missed it before.

I know what you mean about the voice in EXPO80. It's actually a recording of a Scottish fisherman taken from freesound website. I kind of understand that it's hard to figure out what the dude is saying, and believe me, I've had the dilemma if to actually include it in the recording or not. I tend to like the contrast of spoken word + music, as it usually works well together.
But in this case, I just didn't find anything better.

Thanks again for what you said and that you actually found time to listen to my stuff. Highly appreciated.

and would you - please - let me know your thoughts about the other tracks as well?

yeah, life has its demands. I always desire for new music by myself (ha ha) and for the creative process itself. I just don't have the time for that.

hey Slavo I am looking forward to your set @ https://www.hradbysamoty.org which should be different from what you normally do, I mean to fit to the concept of that festival.
