This track is a work in progress of Chapter Two of the puppy Dog Tales. I thought I may as well put something up so I can get some feedback on what works in this track. The drums are nothing spectacualr and will definately be changing. I will also be adding some more constructive guitar work to the track and hopefully a vocal. Genre and style wise, without attempting to do so, the track harks to tracks by both Bloc Party and Doves. Your input is much appreciated on this track as it will influence it's direction.

Peace and Hugs

I love it

This song has (as you said) a Bloc Party feeling to, with slight rumblings of mellow Animal Collective and The Bravery.

The drums are a bit out of place in a few spots but easily cover themselves enough to work in the song


now heres a song ive been anticipating for a while, loved ch 1.

now for what i thought, the instruments were gret that intro sound was amazing with the reverb and guitar. as for the drums, i would prefer to hear some mellow rock drums, what was in there sounded almost a little hiphop.

just my thoughts, keep making great songs!

thanks for the review. Yea as previously mentioned the drums are a stop gap whilst i complete the track, this being the first phrase, there are the additions if a 'b' section with more guitar vocals are something that needs to be added to the track as well.

Length wise I'm aiming for about 4mins on the track depending on how it develops it may be longer or shorter. So definately keep checking up on this track as it is nowhere near it's completed from yet.


Rly looking toward it.

This could be a master piece! keep it up.

pitbulljones responds:

cheers fella


not as good as chapter one but i still liked it

pitbulljones responds:

good good, as ive said, it is a work in progress so it's bond to develop and improve into a more outright tune, this is more of a beginning to the track. thanks for the review.


Awesome Intro

Absolutely spot on intro. It is awesome. The drone-y tremolo tone in the beginning is awesome. How exactly did you obtain that sound? Lots of a reverb and maybe a delay? Whether or not, its great. Lately I've been experimenting with shoegaze type guitar tone (Ex: lots of reverb, delay, fuzz distortion, reverse reverb)

When the strum chords come in, I swear it sounded just like Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The drums start off okay, but the song just trails into nothingness. Considering it is a work in progress, that is going to be fixed.

I have not heard anything from you in quite awhile and it it sounding great. Finish this up and I'll take a listen and tell you what I think.

pitbulljones responds:

hey matey, thanks for the review. You're spot on with regards to guitar, flamenco on the string with two seperate deals and a massive reverb. 'Shoegazing' is definately one of my more promient effects of playing, delays and reversed verbs, it's finding the balance so it doesnt totally fill the audio spectrum. Glad you like the chord progression, it started out as a riff which as its self sounds awesome but chords work stronger me thinks. Yea it does peter out into nothingness, this is more the first section of the song, it'll trail off into more lead and a key change. Vocals will come in on the first guitar chord. Drums are just a guide atm, ezdrummer is fucking cubase up for me conflicting for some reason so just using fl for the meanwhile while i suss it out. Keep your ears peeled in the next couple of weeks as i will keep posting updates until the track is complete.
