Lyrics
Home Sweet Home

Where I'm living now don't make no sense to me
Where I'm living now don't feel like home to me

Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home

Where is my home
Where is my life
Where is my home
Where is my life

You couldn't get me to live here
If I didn't live here now

Mix sounds really full here. There is a lot going on, but everything sits really well, and nothing steps on anything else. Vocals and harmonies are particularly nice. The music has a very relaxing and comforting feel which goes with the lyric very well.

What a great track, very laid back. I like the vocals a lot too, you blend very well with the background vocals. All around "homely" feel to this. Terrific collab!

mixed with the pop song elements, which maximizes the sonic pleasure.
can't go wrong with the combination of talents.
hearty applause!

thanks relic67

i guess i was aiming for a kind of 'baroque pop' feel with this with all the vocal layers

hope i succeeded

Great work Bryn - really like what you did
with all of the contributions - excellent blending. Guess I missed the boat while this was in the pod - too much action on the home front.

blending
as you know from experience kevin, there is always room for more ingredients in the blender and the concotions can be remixed and reheated many times

cheers

I dig this alot, nice subtle, mellow, and the lyrics are short but powerful.

Couldn't agree more - I think that's why its so effective (not to mention the help I got from my fellow contributors)

Roy Orbison
something in the chords and your voice reminds me of him.

Great ensemble piece. Good composition, good performances.

There are some weird noises, around 1:45 something buzzing and later some high frequencies. If they are intentional, I'm not quite convinced....

Roy Orbison
I can see that and take it as quite a compliment (although Roy was not in my mind in the slightest when I was making this)

The buzzing and the high frequencies are entirely intentional in the places you mention....sorry I didn't convince ya

WharmtonRise said 2517 days ago (July 6th, 2010)
Yes
Wonderful longing feel to go with the lyric. I like beepy, buzzy one might say 'grungy' sounds so I'm convinced, especially on the fade (though I know from comments I get that they are not everyone's cup 'o tea).

simple is effective

Parichayaka said 2515 days ago (July 7th, 2010)
original and bubbling with creative energy
Love the way you put this song together. The uncomplicated songwriting is the perfect setting for the various fertile layers to grow happily (had to google 'farfisa'), with the vocals happily walking on soft grass. The multiple voices sound and work great by the way.

It drove me crazy to figure out which song it reminded me of! Then I figured maybe I mixed up Echo And The Bunnymen and Coldplay.

Home doesn't sound like a bad place to spend some quality time! Nice artwork too.

google farfisa
thank you for your kind and thoughtful comments

i had never thought of coldplay or echo and the bunnymen in reference to this, but now that you point it out, i can clearly see how/why you make that comparison

Gaylen75 said 2515 days ago (July 8th, 2010)
wtf
This has the potential to be one of the greatest tracks I have heard on here and it is stubbed. I want more lyrics. Oh my god I love this it needs to be fully realised. MORE! I will dl it and always wish it had gone further.
Check out my latest song called Dont Go Now
particledots said 2513 days ago (July 10th, 2010)
it is stubbed
i have never heard that term before in a music context...i assume you mean the song is too short? i did toy with the idea of adding a few more pieces/sections/instruments....but decided that after doing this mix, leaving it for a good few days and then returning to it, that it already had a gem-like quality that could potentially be ruined by new additions - so i left it stubbed


im curious...do you have any thoughts on how this could be more fully realised? if so and if you are interested, i would turn the 'master tapes' over to you to see what you come up with

Depth aplenty for this great tune.
Bryn, I missed this when you first released it, but saw that guygrooves did a re-production of it. Before I listen to his, I wanted to hear your original. I don't think this needs a remix; I really like the sensibilities you brought to it, it's got so much depth. So it's going to be very interesting experience hearing what Guy does with it. See that sone for my comments. (http://www.macjams.com/song/66176)
