Dirty Paws (OMAM cover)

January 20th, 2016 + 1:01 AM  ·  DjSkygrinder

Hi, all:

Spent the past week or so working on this "interpretation" of the song "Dirty Paws" by Of Monsters and Men. The parts don't match up 100% but that's alright in my book, however, I can't figure out what it is in the mixing that separates a recording like this to the top-40 produced track. Any advice / critique are appreciated. (La la la's need to be re-done, I know that much).

A drummer is tracking the percussion as we speak, so one less problem.

Been a while, bandamp. Fiance gone out of the country for a month or two, so suddenly lot's of time to be writing songs about misery

Hope you enjoy.

Let go

Hey all.

Got a new interface recently and decided to put together an EP again.
As always I value the your feedback, and eagerly await your comments & critique.

This track needs serious mixing, and probably a revisit on the vocal recordings.
Another thing I can't shake is the feeling of it all being out of time in the chorus.
Anyways listen for yourselves and let me know.



Live life and let go,
Of hurts you've collected.
You have to move on,
Luck is tired of waiting.

You smoke way too much,
Chasing the last times.
You like to feel pain,
To watch yourself bleed.

Chorus (x2):
'Cause when you fall,
You're so calm and collected;
And when you break,
You don't feel empty handed.

Give back all you took,
The chances you've wasted.
We starve ourselves,
Because sadness is empty.

Turn back the clock hands,
You're scared of it ending.
You clutch the last hope,
But we're just pretending.

Chorus (x2)

I get high

Hey all.

It's been a while. A constant battle between having a career and dedicating time to the art. This is a quick demo recording to show the song to my band mates. It's been a while but your opinion still is dear, BandAmp!

Let me know what you think,


Woohoo youtube here I come
