This is an album I've been working on for a while; my biggest influences here were my favorite music of the '60s: The Beatles, Van Dyke Parks, and of course The Beach Boys. Take a listen, comments appreciated!

Very interesting. I'm definitely feeling the 60s vibe. I didn't listen to every song though- anything you would specifically recommend?
One thing I would mention, and this is not to disparage the work at all, but I'd love to hear a bit more sloppiness/human feel, I think it would really benefit the songs. But I really like the songwriting, and there is some very interesting mixing going on!

Thanks for Listening! I would reccomend "and i know", "without her", and "1000 miles off the ground". appreciate the suggestion, definitely something I've thought about, thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Maybe I put too much faith in atmosphere

I've just listened to it all the way through and it sounds brilliant to me. You should be very proud of it.

And... I would say the human feel is definitely there.

Look forward to hearing any changes/improvements/whatever you may decide to make...
