OCR01467 - F-Zero "Voices Broken"

Recommended Posts

Reminds me of some of the Pixies instrumental tracks. I like this a lot - not something I would ever expect from JJT, though.

I'm a big alt rock/garage fan, so I dig this. I'd like to see more of this style from JJT; he has a great grasp of the sound/style. Maybe some (more) vocal collabs with Vig? ;)

The percussion should be simplified. There are WAY WAY too many fills where there shouldn't be in the beginning. It just sounds like the drummer's showing off. I can see the intent of the mix, but I really don't like the production/recording. It's confused.

Friggin' awesome work! I'd have like to hear the drums a little less in the mix though. Still, great, great work! Probably my favorite by you.

Rock on.

Yay. I like it!

Its a great tune and theres something very appealing on the production. PUNCHY. AND. CRISPY.

The energy of the song is awesome. And I really like the "garage" approach. Sounds COOOOOOL.

Thanks!

Sounds like Sonic Youth if they traded in Steve Shelley for Matt Tong (Bloc Party's drummer). The guitar sounds almost shoegazer-ish. Maybe the drum levels could've been balanced better. Doesn't bother me though. Great mix!

I was actually trying to model the drumming after William Goldsmith (Sunny Day Real Estate / Foo Fighters / The Fire Theft), but I'll still take that as a compliment.

Oh. Yeah I can see that too. They have sort of similar styles I guess. Matt Tong is slightly more...mechanical I guess.

Either way, the drumming kicks ass.

Yeah, I actually thought of Foo Fighters' drums when I listened to this. That's a good thing. I personally thought that the drums were the best part of this mix. I wish people would turn up the volume on the drums more often.

Quick question though... did the lead guitar at the beginning seem to be playing to a different rhythm at first? Maybe it was just me. Anywho, not a bad thing. It grew on me after a while.
