Spacerock!

Hi guys,

this is the first single of an album production we did this year.
Mastered by Robin Schmidt at 2496 Mastering, who did a great job on this one!
We're really proud of it and so I wanted to share it with you guys.

Hope you enjoy it!

Cheers,

Chris

Good rock song, but I'd work on the bridge, doesn't have the quality of the rest of the song, in my opinion.

This has been my favorite song today. You cut out and left me wanting more.

We thought the bridge was a good transition and kept the mood of the song. Sounds a bit reminiscent of Love and Rockets, no?

Great song. From the first seconds Bowie came to my mind, and I wasn't wrong at all. I really enjoyed the tune.
Keep the good work and keep me posted for new stuff!

Sounds good to me. I'm listening on my crappy computer speakers and it sounds really nice there, so that's generally a sign it'll sound good almost anywhere. I liked the balance between the heavy low end and the lighter guitars, and it left plenty of room for the vocal in between.

Couldn't make out a lot of the lyrics, but I don't personally find that a problem. Lots of great songs had somewhat mysterious lyrics, and I find the modern obsession with super-defined vocals to be kind of counter-productive a lot of time. Let the listener try to figure it out, and sometimes read their own meanings into it.

great stuff and an even greater endorsement for "pro mastering." the song has a great commercial polish to it

how's he supposed to work on the bridge for a finished song that has already been mastered?

I like it better than the first track, because the vocal is less forward and I don't really care for the vocalist...sorry

Really great production all around

conversely, i didn't care for the 2nd track and found it to be very chaotic sounding.

Largely out of ignorance on my part, does it work in the Spacerock arena to have a four minute song's subject matter begin at 1:38, as it does in the Ballet Of Promises track? While the clarity s good, the baby to bath water ratio for the entire track seems way out of balance to me, but I readily confess ignorance of this Spacerock genre.

I agree that the singer's voice is pretty special and for some people it certainly needs getting used to. Besides that the band never cared about common song structures like A-B-A-B-C-B or choruses starting not later than 0:30. But I hear where you're coming from.
By the way, it was often really tricky to let all the (sometimes 100+) tracks have their own space and sometimes the band didn't even want it to be clear and open. There are parts where they wanted me to go for a more chaotic feeling mixing-wise...

Cheers,

Chris

P.S.: The commercial polish is one of the many things a liked about Robin's mastering, too.

Really good tracks. Can you give us a rundown of what was used in production and mastering?
