Padding Down



Liner Notes: 

This is the first Splittown EP tune!
It's supposed to be for a funny spy-themed video game. Biggrin
Hm, maybe?

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

Perfectly in character for the theme. Your playing is immaculate. Clarinet is a great contrast, it's such a tragicomic sound. Smile

I like the change up at around 30 secs in, adds another dimension to it Smile

Boppin'. Fun track, sounds like a nice theme for a loading screen actually, and oddly enough I imagine some Sponge Bob misadventures here. For some reason. The guitar sounds good and the instrument change at 1:06 was a cool trick.

I love the bouncy nature of this tune, and the flighty lead guitar line on top of the rhythm. Reminds me a bit of "Misery" by Green Day, one of their more unique tunes. I also totally see @Barry Goldman's Spongebob comparison. I also agree with @Kraftec and @Barry Goldman that the change in 30 seconds in, and the instrument change at 1:06 really add a lot. You could've kept the groove the same, but switching it up makes it much interesting. Great work!

Cool sounds! Kind of like surf meets the carnival. I also like the instrument changes. Fun Smile

LOVE THIS !!! THE OPENING NOTES HOOKED ME INSTANTLY. I was tapping my toe and snapping my fingers and really dug this. Got that whole blues n jazz vibe going. Nice use of multiple instruments too. It was a shame this track came to an end. It finishes much nicer and tidier than song 1, which kinda had a jarring end. I would've had maybe 4 or 8 more beats to the ending as it slowed down, so you could travel away with the music into silence. Great work, I dig you dude!

Very nice-- I could hear it with fiddles in place of guitars for a klezmer feel. A very summery feel.

Oh great tune. . I really enjoyed this one. Flows great and gives an intense warm feeling.

This is fun. It has a sort of tango-ish feel to me. This could be a really versatile composition for someone who's a good marketer. Spy movie, video game, comedy act, etc.

This is my favourite of the ones I've heard. I love this sort of music. I can imagine Tom Waits vocalizing over the top of it. Bravo! Excellent!

This has a "kick" to it! It has a happy feel to it...warm and friendly. Sounds great!

Feels like an insane carnival surf-clown polka, something totally off-kilter about this, it works very well. Nice riff, and I dig when the ride comes in for the B section, great tone on that cymbal. Feels like a clown smiling a little too large with one extra sharp tooth and some other teeth missing. Was that melodica?

I love that melody. It's humorous to my ears but sounds so tasty.
