Mainly submitted for the next NAC 2012: misery.
Recorded with Logic 9. Must be a 50 layered project.
Try to listen the songs on your monitors instead of your apple headphones ^^ -> i have the feeling it's missing a lot of low frequency if you do.
Guitars played by Sander Tijburg. Drums played by Jorn Juist. Bram Juist was drum engineer on this one.

Follow me:

‘Above the Basement’ combines interesting classical harmony with a modern indie rock style, all with smooth voice and an incredibly well-polished production. The melancholic mood of small orchestral arrangements, gentle guitar riffs, baroque keyboards, clean vocal harmonies and borrowings from Jon Brion and Brian Wilson makes it easy to visualize film scenes when listening to the tracks. This is not strange when you know an orchestra of talented international musicians has been summoned to record the songs. ‘Above the Basement’ might be compared to listening winter-songs on a hot summer evening, or listening summer songs on a cold winter night. Either way, after listening these songs you are left with this particular emotion of both hope and melancholy.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I like the instrumentals, but the vocals might use some work, there seems to be a bit too much "stuffy nose" going on for my tastes.
