Description
Here's another take on Linda's 'Psycho' vocal line ... I feel a little late to the party as there are at least 2 other excellent songs that have used the same sample, but, hey, never too late.
Not much else to say ... it was great singing on the same song as you, Linda! Hope you like this.

A song to have break-up sex to.

Only other thing to add is that I played about with the bass for ages ... still not happy with it ... but it's out there now ...

Your voices blend beautifully and I really like your high notes Steve. Superb production - especially the drums. Great song. No need for lyric printing because your diction is so good too. Fantastic.
Cheers

No lyrics
Actually Len, some of the lyrics were done, er, on the fly, as it were. I tried singing the choruses the same register as Linda, which actually suited my voice, but they clashed too much, hence the higher harmony. First time I've mixed female vox ... it's really different (and difficult). Good ol' AD drums - the verses are the 'ping pong' setting ... don't have eat up processor time, though. Thanks for the kind words. pal.

Great
This is refreshing and awesome! Once again PJ Harvey comes in mind, don't know why - although it is only a positive reflection. Your vocals works very good together; blend as one. This is a very good collab! Now I just need to find a good reason to break up.... :)

Hi Mikki - listened to your latest this morning - absolutely awesome track, can't wait for the cd.
I never thought of PJ, but with Linda's voice, and especilaly the mood of the verses, I see what you mean. First time I've done a 'duet' - We could be the alternative Elton John and Kikki Dee.
Really appreciate your comments.

Alternate take
I loved your take on this Kenta - our versions are very different - yours is a lot darker. it's interesting to hear the different tracks people have made with this (Seca Mode has posted one as well) . Maybe we should instigate a Loop it or Lose it contest using one of Lindas vocal lines?

thanks for stopping by and checking this out

Shirley not
hey KTB - funny, I was trying to work out what this sounded like, and did think of Garbage - its a sweet vocal, with a touch of venom. The original vocal line took me in a slow, quiet direction, but as so often happens, the song had other ideas - I just do what I'm told.

Thanks for the thoughts

Masterful!
You ever turn on the radio, at some odd time of the wee hours of the morning, and maybe in a major metro area, or maybe, not so metro, but some smaller part of the world - and a tune comes on, that feels like it was made for you. And you listen intently, w/ disbelief that you caught this moment - You listen intently, and to the end, just praying that the dj would name the artist, but they don't... And maybe, you were able to get to the record button to catch just enough of it...

You spend the rest of some time, wondering..., who was that... You say things to yourself like, I knew that this was a place that I was supposed to be, if not to catch this tune, and maybe now, forever...

It was a rare find - You can't seem to be able to buy it - Definitely, a timeless event - A very intimate moment - It was made for you, and likely, no one else... And you're almost kinda glad, that the dj, didn't mention a name, because you just knew, that this piece was only for your heart and soul and that if were ever to lay upon the ears of the lessor deserving, that some how, you might have to share this moment..

No one will ever put things together in this way again, but this band might... But doubtful that they will because it is likely, that this was just a moment for them too. A moment when all things in the universe aligned...

Steve, you did a beautiful job of aligning things on this. And what a stunning job, Lida did, performing this. Strikingly beautiful. Her writing... Your writng...

Your singing!... Your playing!...

My chills!... My god...

I did take a copy and it is okay to remove the download option because truly, this was only meant for a deserving, hurting soul..., - A strange thing... to be selfish w/ pain...

Thank you. Macca

Thank you.
Macca,

I almost didn't reply to this, I didn't know how to.

We write music, mostly I think, to express how we feel at that moment, to communicate and share, and send it out into the digital world, hoping it'll mean something to someone else, that someone will listen.

Thank you for listening.

I like when you sing low against your own higher voice in the break. When you and Linda kick it together it just soars. Excellent production and "near perfect" bass. Sorry I couldn't help myself. Thanks for posting.

Hey Bud - listened to your new track today ... sort of thing I hear and think ' why can't I get my stuff to sound like that' ... mixing envy??!! You do such a wide range of great stuff.

This started off experimental, but, as so often with my stuff, wanted to be liked so we had to have a chorus. Anyway, yeah, it was great singing with a girl, even if she was only virtual. Glad you liked it, thanks for listening and commenting.

Oh, and the bloody bass ... it just never sounds right to me ... i ended up putting 2 in the chorus!

Hi Steve - the intro is kinda misleading - i wrote the first verse with a different direction in mind, then it just seemed to want to rock out a bit - I like the intro piano as a little bit of misdirecton. I don't seem to be able to write anything over 3 1/2 mins these days, but, hey, short and sharp ain't bad.

Rock on yerself!

Excellent!!!
Its always good to see the process of an artist, in this case we know what you started with and we can enjoy what you have built around it. Nice notage youve added to those few singing notes you were provided with...I also believe your voices compliment eachother well, well done champ!
echoroom said 3764 days ago (July 3rd, 2007)
Scary!
this was quite ... I'm surprised i got a song here, as Linda didn't know the chords, and I only know 4 ... and it turns out the root notes were black keys, which i tend to avoid.... anyway, this was a really interesting challenge , and we got a bouncy toon out of it, so it all ended well! The problem with having the vocal line is there's sooo mnay ways you could take the song .... hence it ended up a bit schizo ... but then look at its' parents!

Cheers bud

This is awesome!
What a great build-up and foundation this is to Linda's original track.
Your voices sound fantastic together and complement eachother so very well.

I really admire those who can take a separate vocal track and build underneath it, as I can't do the same. I always have to put the vox over the instrumental foundation.

Fab collab! Kudos to you both! :)

Hey Mysti ...
...many thanks for the kind words. i usually tend to start with vocal lines on my own tracks, but twist it around if I can't figure out the chords, so doing this really stretched me. it took a looong time to get the two voices to sit well ... I think it's okay here. Thanks for the kind words and for taking the time to listen

The vocals work well together - I really like the verse parts. I know you're really busy, but will take you up on the offer on singing on one of mine in the near future. Thanks for your support.

Someone's to blame...
Ironically when I was submitting my comment to your song Crash, last night, the site crashed as well. Now I'm not pointing fingers.....anyway

a slightly different thing from you. a duet non the less. it works out really well I might add. the chorus is just killer.

Elton John and Kikki Dee. Nah
Sonny and Cher, Nah
Captain & Tennile, Nah
Steve & Eddi, Nah

Well I guess you two need to do your own variety show. And don't forget Muggs the cigar smoking chimp to come out between acts.

Heck, i would even show playing guitar while riding on the shoulders of a bear driving a motorcycle.

James
I remember the english band James saying that whatever they called their album, it refelcetd what happened in their lives, so they called one of their albums 'Millionaires'.


Unfortunately it didn't sell.


Anyway, the variety show thing could be great, although Linda is a lot younger than me, so it may look a bit creepy .... though we could appeal to all age groups, I suppose. I could tap dance, she could juggle .... you're booked to play guitar, but Muggs will play rhythm.

I'm just off to ring NBC .... sounds like we gotta winner!

Steve,
Amazing. The lead guitar (?) synth (?) is blow-away, really well done. Your voices are perfectly suited for each other. Now I know you are a perfectionist---the bass is fine--don't touch it! I think you voice is totally healed--this cut shows it, fantastic falsetto! Love the splashy/flappy cymbal on the bridge. This thing goes so many places all at once. You are a busy guy, the stuff you have been putting out has been outstanding.

... now to be fair Phil, i was actually pretty happy with the synth guitar on this, and in fact, thought the mix was okay ... then I listened to 'So Invisible' and wept.

I appear to have bought a shoddy version of Logic, as what comes out of my mac sounds very different to what comes outta yours!

Seriously, thanks for the comments ... i've learned a lot in the short tine we've collab'd and will continue to pick that big brain of yours!

Have fun!!! Look forward to see what you come up with now :)

My one suggestion is to start out with a preset which sounds OK (there's one called "CD master" I think) and then run it with a song and just mess with each of the 6 sections separately to see what they do. My biggest mistake was to get carried away with the amount of gain I could get on the song, to the detriment of the detail (listen to Ledeb and Jim's latest versions of In The Garden to hear an example).

Have fun

Great sound. I like your guitar parts especially.

Yeah, it was about 4 months okay you said to check Lind's work out, and here we are, joined in vocal harmony. Dorseymatchmakers.com ..... could definately be a winner, as you've already paired up Estellie with JC.

For a complete musical eejit like me, it was really tough setting Lind's vox to music, and involved hours of prodding around bass notes on the keyborad to find root notes, but in the end, was worth it ... sounds like Thom Yorke meets the Carpenters to me..It's also the best two fingered guitar solo I've ever recorded, and utilises Logic pros Space Designer reverb set to ' the biggest delay setting possible'.

Lovely to have you back on the site Bob - welcome home!

Just amazing ..
.. you are on such a roll Steve .. a flabbergasting song
you built up here around Linda's vocal .. and I don't say that often (partly 'cos I have to look up how to spell
'flabbergasting' ..lol). Such passionate energy,
excellent production, radio ready, should be snapped
apon for commercial success real soon. Such high
quality output from you these past posts.

It's kinda "Garbage-some electronica" meets INXS(I've always heard that a bit in your voice/delivery haven't I?) in some way, if I was to place the 'overall' sound/vibe. What a combo. It would be 10's across
the board. Inspiring and such high standard setting as
ever. I'll be giving you a tinkle on the dog when I
make the switch over to Logic Pro.

Thanks Alannah - I think it would be great to do a LIOLI with one of Linds vox pieces, although unofficially that's what's happened.

The tone of the verse is what I originally had in mind for the song - dark, jittery beats, but then the song took a bit of a left turn and started bouncing around a bit, and I always think it's better to go where the song wants to take you, rather than where you think it should go (they're stubborn little buggers).

Thanks for your thoughts on this, rock goddess

Hey
Do mean there are other kinds of sex than break-up sex? Now you've got me thinking...

But enough of that! This is yet another song that I am discovering somewhat late, but I'm sure glad I found it, 'cause it's exceptionally well done. Very intense -- love it!

coming back...
to review your latest song, Steve! Been busy as always and haven't been here for like eons, so it is always great to get an email notice about your latest!

This is a great melding of your voices. Linda's voice is one of the best here in Macjams and you infusing your distinct vocal and musical style just pushes this piece several levels up. Very bold, unorthodox and unique in so many ways. The musical production also definitely showcases your all-around skills in music-making.

Truly a great song, with a cracking dual vocal, excellent production, the works really. I'm very impressed.

Hey Mike..
...good to hear from you - you've been doin' some amazin' work lately. I had a lot of fun on this, and spent hours playing with different reverb settings in Logic (hence the backwards sound .... dial up 51, big f++k-off reverb). The voices work pretty well together, and the song kinda wrote itself ... it's nice when that happens (rather than the usual sweat n blood involved).

Amazing
Sorry I'm sooo late getting around to commenting on this one Steve, but I've been working away from my computer a lot the last couple of weeks.
Anyway, this is just bloody amazing, really love the bass line, and the bloody piano. I know it's been said by others that there's a Bowiesque edge to your vocals, and there is, man there sure is here, and it sounds incredible, you really let it rip. Mr Bowie was my first major obsession I bought Ziggy when it first came out and was a huge fan for many many years after, I'm fairly familiar and fond of his vocal range and style. Here you sing like Bowie does only on his very best stuff. Fantastic.
Linda's voice is beautiful here too. Great blending together.

Thin white Steve
good to hear fro you Willie - away from the computer - how do you cope?? I'm away on work for a few weeks, so i din't know how I'll survive without the Mac! I got into Bowie with the 'Scary Monsters' album, and Ashes to Ashes is probably my fav song of all time... I think what it is, alot of singers I was influenced by (The Bunnymen, Nick Cave) were also influneced by Bowie, so it sort of filters in. Odd thing is, i don't really hear it myself ... probably self-denial.

Anyway, thanks for the comments ... it's good to get the feedback 'cause after working on a track, I completely lose perspective. I guess it'll be a while until you post something new then?

Oh, and i've ordered a Black Angels t-shirt - totaly into them!

Quick landing?
As usual, I really enjoy the mix of electronic and acoustic sounds in your tunes, Steve, and the vocals are great---makes me think of X or Velvet Underground a bit.

Though, I thought that the ending was abrupt. Perhaps a fade out while repeating that final crescendo section?

Lovely track, in spite of my picky ears--DL'd.

Hi Greg ... thanks, I always thought when i wrote solo stuff it'd be fully guitar based ... then i realised how difficult the guitar was, and how much I like electronic noises ... I also seem to use a piano on everything now (thank god for quantising!).

This song I think is a bit short - just over 3 mins, and as the chorus only appears twice, i could've got away with repeating it, couldn't I? Fair point - I think with some recent tracks, I could've developed them a bit more ... too impatient! Good comment .... i think I needed someone to tell me this!

cool collab
The intro part doesn't quite do it for me, but once you get to the chorus the song really takes off. Great inflections in your vocal line there Steve. Your vox in the chorus sound great with Linda's.

Some of the production in the verse doesn't really resonate with me (I like the more organic drums rather than the heavily effected drums), but there are parts of this song that are incredible. I don't mean to be overly critical, because this is awesome work, I'm just having a bit of trouble digesting parts of it. Guess I have to listen to it a few more times to really absorb it.

You dont have to love every little bitty!
Hey Mason - real interesting comments, as the song was originally gonna be pretty down and moody, like the verse all the way through, and then it kinda took off in the chorus. If the song had the same mood as the chorus all the way through, it'd probably be a lot more 'accessible', so i think i get what you're saying... the parts work against each other to an extent.

Interesting take ... what happens when you only like bits of a song, do you fast forawrd through the other parts!?

Appreciate your critique .... much better than saying you like it all and lying!!

It's starting to work for me as I listen to it more.

One of things that I love about listening to music is finding stuff that I didn't quite appreciate the first time around and starting to "get it" after several more listens... I like to challenge the listener as well. Some stuff isn't meant for immediate digestion.

BTW - great work on the new McBoy tune.

The blend of your voice with Linda is a perfect balance; the differences only strengthen the likenesses. The production is... well, maybe Rik should just go bang a stick on a cardboard box for a while. This is polished without losing any of the blood and bone that gives it strength.

Awesome job, Steve. Sorry I'm so late to the party.
