Re: which song is coming out of your speakers right now, the sequel

Ozric Tentacles - Humboldt Currant (Solstice single), from their upcoming new album. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xbYNvnzGMg The Ozrics are in very good shape. Very nice groove, psych synths wooping around, great bass groove. If it's not broken, why fix it ? The Ozrics are basically 'doing the s...

Re: Face Value

Thanks for the comments. About thew mix: I find that the bass notes shouldn't always be that long. They take a bit too much place. There's too much 'room' in the guitars, due to the microphone and acoustics. The solo guitar, indeed, can be more expressive. It gets better by the end as everything mov...

Face Value

Now this one is threading on common ground. As such it should be more apt to comparison with same kind of tracks. IMHO, the mix is not right. I won't be listing why now as to not influence listening, although I find there are areas to improve in order to sound more like this type of song would be. A...

Re: Linux Musicians Playlist

It's not easy to come up with one piece. Here's one. It didn't get close to 1000 listens as others did, but it does use exclusively (apart from the drums) a free synth that runs on Linux: u-he's TripleCheese: "A Case of Käse Part Deux : Planet Gorgonzola" https://soundcloud.com/nominal6/a-case-of-ka...

Fiori - now mastered by a SC machine

Now mastered by the soundcloud mastering machine (provided by Dolby), Clear Sky type at 42% https://soundcloud.com/nominal6/fiori jam735-fiori.jpg I did not leave the original in place as this is a quick test, not really meant for comparison. During the mastering process one gets to choose which sty...

Re: Saunter

Thanks ! Yes, some Krautrock was part of my uprising so to speak, most notably Amon Düül II and Can. At one point I had all the albums. Still like to listen to these bands from time to time. The bass tone was saved in extremis, at the last minute. It can be difficult to take a step back and listen w...

Not sure about the mix.

A relaxed piece, taking its time.

Re: Harmonium - "Comme un fou"

... others did pop (like New Trolls), in general I'd say it was a self-contained movement because aside from (occasionally) PFM, you don't hear much about those bands nowadays. And PFM went rather pop (in a good way I find) with "Passpartù" and "Suonare Suonare" which I think helped them to come ba...

Re: Harmonium - "Comme un fou"

One of my favorite bands, glad someone else likes them! And from Italy I like Quella Vecchia Locanda, Locanda Delle Fate, PFM, Maxophone, Synthonia, Il Castello di Atlante and especially Deus ex Machina. Italy and Québec were two centers of progressive rock creativity. I specifically use Québec and...

June 24th is Québec's national day. Here's Harmonium, a very, very popular band from the late 70s with "Comme un fou" from their double LP "L'heptade" This Harmonium double LP is considered as progressive rock. It was remastered on CD recently. Quick translation is from Caroline, found in the commen...

Something akin to that indeed.

Re: Uneducated

I think we vastly underestimate the value of tempo fluctuation as a dramatic device to convey emotion, those infinitely varying milliseconds of "human-timing" are just as useful as the microtones in a guitar string bend or a violin vibrato to say what we want to say authentically.. I totally agree....
