All Real Instruments. A bit of a shoe-gazing, dreamy song, features a delayed bass-line during the chorus. It took several weeks to write, practice and record; I'm fairly happy with the way it turned out. Probably one of the few downbeat songs I've(we've) written. I appreciate any honest reviews, thank-you.

Lyrics -

Staring over the vantage
To get a minor advantage
Watching dotted snow flakes
Stirs up my headaches
All the people have formed around bits of dust
They spend their lives being pushed around
By every single gust

All your life will go
Your Home won't be your home
The names will hang around
The words will slip and fall down

Mumbling over the sleet
The words cut across my cheeks
Moving farther takes me further
From the peace
Without a place my pace seems
Far from complete
The blank stares the steady looks
They move me to my feet

I have to disagree about the drums. While I generally tend to prefer faster drums(I listen to a lot of Punk), I think the drums in this song fit the style perfectly. Besides that, I prefer to pay attention to the more important aspects of a song, such as the guitar and vocals. I thought the singing was really well-done in this song, as well as the bass. The guitar was a little simple, but I liked it. Lyrically, I don't really understand it, but maybe the lyrics are a bit deeper than my mind can go. Either way, it gives a bit of a haunting feel. Awesome job.

Hey Jon, I really appreciate the review. We don't write many songs like this so I'm glad you dug something a bit slower and more minimalist. Haunting and melancholy was what we were going for. I still love hearing the delayed bass line during the chorus. This song and On/Off were recorded in the abandoned gas station we use to practice at.

I'm diggin' the vibe home slice.

Great song, alternative music at it's best. P.S. The lyrics are my favorite part of the song. Kudos.

Not bad

I like the lyrics but the drums drive me crazy.. being a drummer myself i could put so much more into this song then your drummer does..

DreamsfromGin responds:

I bet Meg White drives you crazy, haha. Agreed though, The drummer we had at the time took a minimalism approach, this has changed for our recent release. Thanks for the review!


wow, I'm just impressed by how many good songs you guys have. this is stuff I've been looking for for years. simply amazing.


The rhyming of the lyrics in the chorus seem a bit forced, but it gets better as it goes along. And musically it's pretty solid. I think it may just be syllabic stress, but I'm not sure. Not something earth shattering, but good.

DreamsfromGin responds:

Hmm...looks like I'll have to find another way to shatter the earth then...
