roger seriously reminding of dylan here. but nicer voice.


i do like whitewash's song very much too, but dang, roger!


Definitely a Dylan vibe. Great lyrics too. I wasn't really feeling it until the "You're the door creaking in my mouth" line, then it sort of falls into place.


With Whitewash, the song was more immediate and really created a nice mood. It has that nursery-rhyme "twinkle twinkle little star" loveliness/comfort factor.


Fuck knows tbh.


Edit: Yeah went with Whitewash in the end. Just really well performed and sounds great at loud volumes. Peaceful. The guitar work adds a lot aswell.

Whitewash - this song is beautiful. Really love piano atm, however much it's used in a song. Love the harmonies with the backing vocals too. If anything, this song is too short, I was in my own little world whilst listening to it and then I realised it had just faded out on me.


Roger - Not a massive fan of this one but the guitar has some nice melodies and the singing's pretty good too. Harmonica has never been my thing though, so ulitmately..


the vote goes to whitewash!

hey man, what'd that guy mean up there when he said "moothie"?


Mouth organ. Harmonica. It's what we call them here in Scotland.


Most Scottish dialects bend "mouth" into "mooth", or even further into "moo" in some places up in the North-East.

it just made me want a smoothie.


i can't understand this moothie hate in here. c'mon, it's got that perfect melancholy, earthy, simple tone to it. maybe i don't mooth as good as i could, but as far as i'm concerned, it's better than no moothing at all.


Awww shut yer mooth. Thir's nae an awfae lot o' moothie hate, jist one wee baw-heid. An' he wiznae ge'in ye jip, he wiz jist tellin' ye whit he thoucht.
