Little track I made today, largely inspired by Codeine

Slowdive, Codeine, Low, Red House Painters, My Bloody Valentine, all good music I've had a chance to discover over the years and I think this track is indeed a nice nod to all that '90s anti-grunge slowfest psychedelic pinkaboob jazz and what-not.

This is really nice and I enjoy the layered guitars making it all very sweet and gentle, but I can see Quarl's complaint here: you decided to put a fade-out during the song's atmospheric climax basically.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm no elitist when it comes to fade-outs or repetition or whatever other convention or musical trope, but I think here you could have added like an extra two bars, spiked the volume at the end a little bit, and then just left all the guitar + reverb tail. It's very '90s, and indeed a very logical conclusion to such a laid-back tune.

But hey mate, it's pure nit-picking. Keep making this stuff and now I'll get back to Low - Shame.


This was excellent. Made my bad day feel a bit better. Thank you

Beautiful, its always take me to a deep feeling when its go slows and smoothy. The mood is pretty well constructed and I like the wierd effect you give and its turn soft. Kinda bring me memories from movies of outspoken scenes. Anyways you did a great job

lol, slow core. You kids are too hip for me. Great timing for atmospheric rock, I'm just getting back into Explosions In The Sky. This doesn't quite have the same explosive climax that their work features but it was still really good. Not everything needs explosions and climaxes btw.

I'm one of those people that detests fade outs though. And it was just when the guitar was like "I'm here guys! Hold on, let me plug in my amp... wait... where is everyone going??"

SineRider responds:

But Slowcore is from the early 90s maaaan

Thanks for the review Quarl, I may go back and make a better ending. I couldn't figure out a good way to end it so I just did a fade
