Description
i think this mix was a bit to complex for me but i gave it a go anyway.
a total BITCH trying to separte 3 fuzzy guitars, 3 clean ones, and 9 vocal trks.
anyway, October? who cares, Surf's UP!

James Brown (yes, his real name): clean surf-y guitars
Me: bass and all fuzzies.
Drums: Addictive Drim proggin

Whoa! Surfs up! Do they make water-proof face paint? Fine mash of styles, Sam. There is a lot going on but you didn't wipeout on the mix. Classic artwork, too. How is the surf in sunny, old England, anyway? :-) At least the music's good. Thanks, Peter.

Great stuff, man.

NOT too loud!
I have BV's on the brain these days, so when your "shoo ba's" kicked in I zeroed in on them.


BTW that's a hilarious picture! The boards themselves are really beautiful. Made before my time, but those were the days, I guess.

Hey Sammy!
jd here, hey wasup dude? Hope all is well! Just popped in for a very rare listen, nice to see/hear you're still crankin' out quality stuff, one of my all time fav's of yours, like I told Phillip you should be dominating the air waves here! Well done!

I love that floppy bass groove ... you are always slightly off the norm in everything you do ... and thats a good thing! Very creative vocals and EFX ... cool fuzzy guitars and you did a good job of making them sit in the mix... it all makes for a pretty hip tune.
Mix is good.

Pretty...pretty what?! My biggest problem is figuring out how to get those vintage '60s longboards OUT of my unibody MacBook Pro frame after all that surfing. They seal them up pretty tight. Gotta find me a star-head screwdriver.

thanks Philip. but in retrospect, i feel it was just a bit overdone. so much so, i remixed it just to save faith in myself. it was sort of a hypocritical post since i hate overhyped mixing and here i was doing it myself.

Leave it to you to invent a new style of music. Nice spin on surf music, with the cheesy clean guitars hahaha and the classic drum beat. Cowbell, too! I figure that BV means backing vocals (see, I'm not as dumb as I look). Yes, they are excellent. The mix sounds great from here. Lots going on.

mate you seemed to capture that surfers style of music perfectly. Great Mix. The vocals was a definite stand out, the layered harmonies under a fuzzed out vocal was a great way to blend the 'beach boys' style with metal. I like the fact it wasn't over produced, nice and organic. Nice Job...

Cool post - lots of interesting stuff going on. Would love to hear it with a "real" drummer - even though the drums work really well, i reckon a real drummer would lift it even further through the roof.
Great post.

ya!!!
Well you nailed the mix in my opinion as you always do! The boards got me. I think my first board was about that big when I was 12. I could barely carry it. It was a puke green and we called it the surf monster but it rode sweet. Catch a few rides, fire on the beach stay out to 10pm, walk home soaking wet. No wonder I got horrible grades... I was always surfin.

Brings back great memories Sammy. Nicely done!

I can hear every single BV and every single guitar. Masterful job in keeping them all separate and it their own sonic spaces. Totally admirable. That bass is sick thick, too. I can only imagine the automation curves on this baby. The BV's are so killer I'm back for my third listen. DL and fav'd. I can always count on you.

Fuzzy guitars...
No problem to me. The vocals, though, are pretty jumbled and I can easily understand your challenges in trying to get them clear: nine is a bunch! But it's still a pretty groovy song that just cooks along with lots of energy and fire. I love the bridge at 1:55 or so...nice guitar leads there and following. (Suggestion: strip away a few tracks and see what you have left. Maybe you will find the clarity you are seeking.)

And look at those boards! Can you imagine surfing on one of those today? This is a real mix of genres, but it works. It might be considered more "Grung Surf", than "Metal Surf", but what the heck, it still flies.

Totally surfin - or is that also a variant of 60's secret agent music. I dunno but either way you guys are clearly having way too much fun with this one. Great tune, lively and fresh with the mix of styles.

I love the vocals on this one.

The bass around 2:20 sounds extra flappy. I really dig that sound and the fact that all of your tunes seem to have so many different sounds layered in there.

Great work. Wish I had discovered your stuff earlier.
