Liner Notes: 

The kind of song to return to with lots of time intervals.

In between working on this, a week ago or so the line 'he was sent to walk on a timeline' popped up in my head. I decided to sing this line in the song.

I have a lot of catching up to do and I will. Music has been a second priority this edition of 50/90.

It's like a big pool of songs to swim in and dive into. I look forward to it, after this 50/90 is over.




Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

What a rich and cool soundscape you've got going here! I love the sections in the middle where things thin out to a few clearer parts and then back to a big production. Overall, the buildups and dropoffs are smooth and hold interest really well.
An intriguing sung line as well. Awesome all around!

What a great full sound and energy in the rhythm. The guitars are great with the other layers - from the synth to vocal samples creating a wonderfully delicious richness!

First off, love the title. The music has a very ethereal feel, as if plucked from a cottony cloud in a psychedelic sky. Reversed guitar sounds really good! I like all the changes, particularly from guitar heavy to more dreamlike and synthy. Nice bass as well! 2:58 is my favorite part, when everything clears away and you're just left with the guitar riff before everything plunges back in. Thanks for all the comments this year, by the way!

So much really cool and interesting guitar work in here, and that vocal bit sits in it so nicely.......really had me tranced out, really enjoyed my listen!!

Oh yeah I'm liking the wordless vocals.
Your usual excellent production.
So many great sounds mixed in there.
Lovely guitar line.
This tune is almost soundtrack-worthy; I'm thinking it needs some sort of visuals.
Really nice headphone mix.
Another winner for sure.

very cool song. It is kind of part shoegaze and part retro synth pop, to me anyway. Takes me back, actually!
