  1. guess he's out of power..
  2. been thru quite a few.... worst was Hugo. no water for 2 weeks.... and when we DID get it back, it tasted like pine sap. no electricity for 6 weeks. 6 weeks. i had a pignose amp and a bag full of batteries, thank god. 22 foot storm surge. yep, 22 feet. and i get 70 mph winds in my backyard! downhill from Mt. Olympus, it can get crazy. hang in there!
  3. heheh thanks... took it down now. getting final mastering tonight
  4. well thanks so much gary, glad you caught this one, focal trios, i'd love to move up to a pair of those, alas, i'm mixing on $200 speakers!! heheh
  5. hi leadfoot! i'm glad you chill with this song, that was kinda the intent.... a tune that can make you reflective, or just space out on the tones, or think about becoming an astronaut!! LOL
  6. hey douglas! thanks man, yea, i dig the acoustic stuff too, i do a lot of acoustic work, but folks mostly miss it.
  7. heheh, hey tom, appreciate the listen and comments, thanks.

    the backing track sounds very similar to some tunes off of Bucketheads' album "Colma" dig the guitar overdubs... sometimes the pick sounds on multiple parts step on each other with the maracas, i think.. it only happens when everything piles up on each other. i dig those parts at that moment, but collectively it does't work, as there's too much info going on at one time. love the juxtaposition of the acoustic against the electric. i think the bass could come up a snidge. nice performances!

    man, wookiee, you REALLY tripped out on this one... its the perfect soundtrack for hang gliding over the mountains, it needs a sailing guitar melody way above the slower sections...😁 but love the flute solo. that is bad @ss. what is the genesis of the mellotron samples on this one? they DO sound very reminiscent of the strawberry fields recordings, maybe not as wobbly....
  14. thanks so much andy! you got the gist of the song, the journey. and didn't even mind the amateurish slide guitar!
  15. i think this one is close! this will be one of the songs on the new bats brew album "Elemental".

    really dig this one starise! i like the fuzz on top of all the acoustic stuff... nice mix, and i like the tempo you chose. it's got a lively step to it, even tho krakens can slow things down quite a bit. until you feel sullied and unusual. LOL
  17. well, you don't have to do it that way. it's your choice, no one else's. always use your ears, not meters.
  18. dig this cover! nailed all the parts! excellent effort here, my only issue is that the guitars all sound a bit fuzzy, and the overall level seems too hot, like it was mastered too hot. all issues that can be addressed in the mix... carlos alomar would be proud! 😄
  19. wookie's got that right, Old Joad... these are 'working' mixes, meaning, they're active... in fact, usually an early mix i put up, like this one, is obsolete by the 3rd day it's up!! LOL so, just so you'll know, i posted EVERY song on this new album, right here, looking for help from my 'peer' group, and in most cases, i got GREAT help! sometimes i posted early mixes, and then later, final mixes, just to get enough feedback to dial in the songs, so at this point, i have 10 finished instrumentals, my first album of instrumentals.... i have 4 other full length albums of vocal songs... this album will be called "Elemental", doing album art right now.... tweaking final mixes.... then very light mastering, targeting -14 LUFS... then off to the cd printers, and they usually take a week to turn it around... off to Amazon, once that's done, i'll put out some links. hope you pick one up!
  20. howdy ho, gary! i don't know how different this one really is, but it's cool that it hits a new chord... hi hat too hot, check. i've completely edited that hat, new hat choice, new eq and level the rhythm guitars, are all mono, and hard panned... the solos are a mix of mono and stereo, typically i don't pan the stereo solos, and soft pan the monos, depending on where the balance is required.
  21. hello douglas! i'm glad you dig this stuff.... hi wookiee! glad you caught this one too, it will be one of the last things posted, time for me to wrap this project up. i'll be beginning final mixes tweaks, then start mastering. meanwhile, i have original artwork to begin before sending it to the printers for a batch of cd's.
  22. hi paul! thank you for listening bass was stepping on the synth bass, and vice versa, so i worked on that quite a bit...
  23. https://soundcloud.com/bats-brew/neon-blues this is the first mix of this tune, 1st time i've posted it. need some feedback on the mix in general. mix is kinda 'faders up', so i'll be tweaking the mix quite a bit, so feel free to include your ideas. this is song #10, of a ten song instrumental album by Bats Brew, called "Elemental". hope you enjoy it! Neon Blues
  24. U MISSED one of the best ones! 🙉
  25. alright, i took this one down now, it's just gathering dust, i do want to say, i appreciate EVERYONE who has helped me put this project together, with insights and comments and suggestions. i may have one brand new one to post, that has never been posted, but then that's it until the discs are printed!
