Legend of Biff Butley (Teaser from the new cd!)
« on: January 16, 2010, 05:02:20 am »
This is a TIMGUL exclusive. I am not posting this anywhere else. Why? Because this is a track from the cd we are going to be putting out around the end of next month...and I mean from the actual *cd*, as opposed to an unmixed demo, like many of the tracks on our Soundclick page. Yep...the f*cker's going on sale soon...sort of. Details to come...

Anyway...this is a late inclusion, entitled "The Legend of Biff Butley". This is "just" an album cut, but it's not a filler track to say the least. Put a lot of work into this bad boy. Dana did a good portion of it, but I did my fair share, and Raymond had some parts in there as well also.

Comments are indeed welcome!

good work man. I really like the bass and little breathy melody too especially at around 3:30. The bassline kinda of reminded me of the tune during the chase scenes in the 1st Terminator movie.  Good stuff...

Cool! Dana will be real happy with the Terminator comparison, as that is her favorite movie series.

Wasn't sure how this tune would go over as it is one of our less accessible numbers (saying a lot for a F2S track :lol:) and my own work ended at about the 53 second mark, aside from a brief reprise or two of my section and the little interlude at around 1:52 or so. My personal favorite part comes around the 4 minute mark.

There's some unusual time signatures in here too. Although technically it is 4/4 (due to the limitations of the software the beat always falls on the quarter note) in actuality the beat itself on this particular tune seems to stray from that and doesn't seem to follow a set pattern. I'm the only trained musician out of us three  yet I imagine this would be a motherfucker to transcribe.

Some truely haunting music here. Cool drum arrangements, and like the deep bass. Really like the section that starts at 2:47, kinda reminds me of some of the music in the old 'Twilight Zone', great melody at 3:41- 3:59. Great ambient sounds as well, which is what gave it a nice dark and haunting atmosphere. Really cool work.
