New Demos Going Up (Chaotic Neutral)

Recommended Posts

That part at around 2:45 is cool.  Sounds a bit different for MG.  Groovy.

 

Agreed, really enjoy that part. Hopefully the final version has more of that in the track.

Sounds pretty good. The part I like the least is the chorus. It's pretty bland compared to the rest of it, it doesn't really have a strong hook to it, nor does it stand out. The bridge part before the second chorus is the best part of the song I think.

KID DOWN THE WELL

The lights of fire engines
the neighbours standing on the grass
parents clutching their own
fighting heart attacks  
and the kid down the well
that’s me  

Listen from the bottom
voices floating down like bees
helmet spotlights throwing lifelines to the deep
and the kid down the well
that’s me 

Always said you’re gonna get yours
you keep going near that thing
like the missile in Strangelove
drifting in slow motion

In space you don't need your legs to walk it off
don’t feel your body
just a giant waterfalls
and the kid down the well
that’s me

And the walls spin cause you know it’s all been coming

Always said you’re gonna get yours
you keep going near that thing 
like the missile in Strangelove
rifting in slow motion

Sooo, I wonder if he is still starting recording this month, and when?


I'm really liking Matthew's singing in Kid Down The Well.  it's reminding me of Avalanche or older singing in a way.  The "and the kid down the well, that's me" part is excellent.  The song in general kind of reminds me of a MG classic like Apparitions or something.  I hear a little Life In Spite Of Itself too.  I think I'm hearing another must have choice to make the album.  So far I've got:

 

Los Alamos

Cold Water

Night Orders

We Have Done This Before, We Will Do It Again

Tiger By The Tail

Kid Down The Well

 

Harridan is on the lesser end but still the best out of the few songs I left out.  I don't care that much if Moment, Girls In Black and All You Sons and Daughters don't make it.  I wonder if Hornets is still in question?

Moment is my favorite because it hits so many sensitive spots for me.

 

It's probably the most radio-friendly out of the bunch, almost like "Us Remains Impossible".

NO LIARS

 

Caught under a spell

you know they’d call you on it

every time we meet, yeah the secret’s on again

feel you move like you’re meant to, closed caption eyes

four walls, a door, making suicide

yeah, we’re no liars

 

Pinned under a spell

the jaws of life to cut it

stare at the windshield a while, let the fire spread

try and move like you’re meant to, all by design

one city, two fronts, and bunker cyanide

yeah, we’re no liars

 

Somewhere fine

it’s somewhere you shouldn’t mind

 

Caught under a spell

you know they’d call you on it

every time we meet, yeah the secret’s on again

Sit and read Jailbird, got nothing but time

yeah, we’re no liars

I thought it was upbeat and I liked the doubling on the guitars. I only heard it once though. We'll see how he updates it.

I really enjoyed No Liars too, actually. Definitely more upbeat and has some interesting progressions as far as the song structure goes (the verse to chorus switch is great). As usual I loved the stripped down indie sound- almost has an Underdogs meets Ryan Adams feel to it for this one. Also, not sure why, but I really liked the lead guitar. 

 

The only thing that missed me about it was the end. Felt that it could have led into a decent little rock out at the end and instead it just ends sort of abruptly.

Loved "No Liars", I was hoping that the album would pick up a bit with some upbeat material.

So many new demos it's awesome! I can't wait to hear what the album is like. It's always fun seeing which songs he actually uses. So far I hope all these demos are on it.

Not sure how different the lyrics are yet.

I'm so excited he's doing Cloudbusting.

I like how "Kid Down The Well" has it's tempo sped up, but it might be just a tiiiiiny hair too fast, needs to go down 1 or 2 bpm so it doesn't sound like the vocals are being rushed, needs that natural flow.

I've been staying away from the demos this time unlike the past two albums, I want that new material experience I had with Hospital Music and Vancouver... it seems like overall impressions are good. Do we know for sure if the album will be named Chaotic Neutral? I hope so, such a cool album title.

looks like mg's recording soon!

 

not sure if chaotic neutral is the official name but it was one of the ones he was thinking about at one point. maybe he can chime in on this when he's got a minute?

It's so fucking beautiful...

The funny part is "Cloudbusting" could easily pass off as a Matthew Good song. 

I hope he plays the piano part properly during the studio version though. 

 

No guarantee this will be on the studio album, it’s definitely good but still sounds more like the original than I believe Matt wants.

 

It must be very difficult to try and re-do a classic like this. In my opinion very few artists are successful in completely re-doing a cover, the best I have heard is Greg Dulli’s She Loves You (The Twilight Singers album), he also did a good job recently (with the Afghan Whigs)  on a cover of Every Little Thing She Does is Magic by the Police :

Matt’s on the right track with this one…

Matt Good (I believe) has an alternate FB page and on it is this picture so maybe that is the title?

I like this title, obviously need to hear the album to see how it fits, I wonder if this is a prievew of album art too?
