"the wild animals", 2nd mix

https://soundcloud.com/bats-brew/the-wild-animals-1
 
 
geek stuff:
a non mastered file, i mixed this into a Limiter across the master bus, and output at 16 bit 44.1khz.
it's about -12rms.
 
mix issues working on:
kick-bass-snare lock
low end tightness versus fullness
how much more high end does this need.

    Great stuff Rob. Cracking groove, sounds simple but loads of little details going on. Really like that ''grab 'em by the short hairs'' section into the breakdown, then back to the groove, excellent stuff.

    What can one say, the production quality is top notch and this deserves more recognition than the number of plays on Soundcloud has given it. Nice on Rob and keep em coming.

    lyric:
     
    The Wild Animals
     
    Just because they smile, and grease back their hair,
    Doesn’t mean there’s any kind of heart in there
    They’ll give you pellets of poison to put in your tea,
    They  say there’s nothing phucking wrong with me
     
    Please, do not feed the wild animals
    Better left alone, the wild animals
     
    It’s a kick back, kick YOU, nothing you can really do,
    If you give em a chance, they’ll chase you into the
    Afterlife too!
     
    “lets book a trip to the Riviera, Sarah,  bring the doctor along”
    “nobody will miss us back home”,
    When the sh!t goes wrong
     
    Please, do not feed the wild animals
    Better left alone, the wild animals
     
    It’s just the modern chemistry, the artistry of grabbing by the short hairs,
    They stay awake at night, and they count their money til the
    Morning light
     
    It’s a cautionary tale, that we all can relate
    It’s a taste of a real time devils delight
    At the cocktail party, or the local church family affair
    The poison pellets are playing truth or dare.
     
    Please, do not feed the wild animals
    Better left alone, the wild animals

    Listening on a crappy pair of earbuds so it’s hard to offer in meaningful suggestions.
    But as always I love your stuff!
    Keep rocking!

    Hey, Rob, How's it going, brother?  Hope you're doing great!
     
    Guess i already missed the first mix, but you've got a very cool, rocker with excellent songwriting, great playing and vocals, as always, and a nice clear, wide mix!
     
    Lots of cool tasty tidbits popping up throughout the whole song, and I really like the little solo adlib fills after the break.
     
    Anyway, great stuff as usual, Rob, and I'm always glad to catch a of new Batsbrew production while they're fresh out of the oven!
     
    Have a good one, buddy!

    hey james!
    thanks for checking this one out..
    yea, lots of stuff going on, over a pretty straightforward beat.
    that breakdown, yea, once the last cymbal hits, i blend in 3 guitars feeding back in unison....
    almost sounds like a keyboard break

    appreciate that biodiode!
    well, it had only been on the soundcloud for about 15 minutes before i posted it!
    so, since these are working demos/songs, i don't like to leave them up for more than a few days,
    but i'll post updates as i get feedback and make changes accordingly.
    i mean, i don't do everything that everyone suggests,
    but i read every suggestion, and if it's an eye opener, i run with it....

    really very good Bats. Great hook
    I don't believe it needs any more high end.
    There is a tone somewhere that is ringing - maybe tightening up the low end would remove it.

    As always, the recording, the vocals and the musicianship is awesome. The song itself is great little rocker. I like the one-off stuff , especially some wacky timing and musical events that caught me off guard around the 2:15 area.

    The fact that a 69 year old dude likes this could been seen as a negative thing - but that’s life - this is good stuff.

    This sounds quite close here Bat's, did you use SD3 on this? I am sure the few tweaks it needs will become obvious to you.

    Kudos on the arrangement, which always keeps the listener's attention . . . "what's next? what's he doing now???" - super original all the way through. The sections are excellent, and you don't run too long with one idea, before another excellent one pops up.
     
    and, kudos on the performances. Cracking guitars, drums, excellent vocals. Very real and powerful performances.
     
    that is all! nice work!

    Just took a second (and third) listen comparing my new DT990's to my ATH-M50's.
    Lots more detail on the 990's (open vs. closed back?), will have to take them out to the studio
    and compare to the 770's.
    But back on topic.
    If I was mixing it; couple of very minor changes, just a "season to taste" thing-nothing important.
    If you have a performance issue? (if there is its probably only something you hear) Fix it.
    Then Master it up Bat!
