Days Come Down

Recommended Posts

Listened to Days Come Down on Spotify for the first time today. I absolutely love it, however, the balance of the audio seems off. Matt's voice seems to be much lower than the instruments.

Just curious if anyone else has noticed it or maybe it's just Spotify....

I also use spotify and didn't notice.  There is already some discussion going on about the "fade out".  I'll listen again and see if I notice anything.

Sounds good. Yeah, the mix seems to be kind of tinny, it could just be spotify's version...I hope. It's also quite quiet compared to other tracks on Spotify. I hope it's just a lower-quality compression or something.

 

EDIT - Good song, though! Very upbeat.

I'm waiting for the album to hear this. I've already heard the singles. There's only 7 songs left!

I've been listening to it on Apple Music, and it sounds great from where I am. Maybe you've got an equalizer function on Spotify or something that's making it sound lower in the mix? I dunno.

I mentioned this in another post but there is a version in youtube now. The vocals seem a bit low but I believe it to be intentional.

I caved. Bought it from iTunes. I like the urgency of the song.

Do we have lyrics for this one yet?

 

Some is hard to tell, others just don't seem right as they sound to my ear. Like the second line there sounds like ladders, but letters seems more correct in the context of the surrounding lyrics. Someone correct my attempt! haha

 

 

 

you buried me in a suit

made of old letters
magazines
mostly pages of mother tones in the nation
better living
bits of patience
which you need
 
drove away in the Valiant
my old man that he gave me
slant six
busted tail light
ivory green
 
when the days come down
when they run out
catch you catching me
when the days come down
 
i was interred in a church without no ceiling
with a (bear?) who was out ???
watching from the trees
 
as i stood upon the water
there silhouettes my daughter
waving back at me
well sometimes i get it 
what it is i came for
like the screaming of your firstborn
sounds like singing
 
when the days come down
you laid right out
catch you catching me
when the days come down
catch you catching me
oh oh

catch you catching me

I had mentioned the exact same thing about the mix in other thread (I'm on Spotify as well).  I've actually noticed this on all 3 songs released so far, it was one of the first things I noticed about Bad Guys Win and it's continued through the other two songs.  I'm not an expert in this type of field, but the drums seem very prominent, the vocals are a bit drowned out and sound a bit muffled to me.  I think it could be a intended effect to bring the drums out a bit more, the vocals I'm not sure.

 

I really like all the 3 songs so far though, interested to hear some of the deeper cuts on the album though.

 

EDIT: I'm listening to the version of Days Come Down on YouTube now and it does sound better.  I'm not sure if it's just because the overall level is higher, but I think the vocals sound better too, still a bit drowned out but not as muffled, I actually like how it sounds on YouTube.  I'm not sure if this an attempt at a Steve Albini-esque mix?  Think Nirvana's "In Utero", The Pixies' "Surfer Rosa" or any album by the The Breeders.

Too bad it wasn't 'old adders'. Would be a sweet take on a snakeskin suit.

I get the same thing. The 'bear' line sounds like "with a bear who was out eating watching from the trees".

 

I can't make out if he says 'old letters' or 'old lotters' (which doesn't exist) or ladders (which doesn't make sense). So letters seems right, just pronounced differently.

I got the same bear line as you. The first line sounds like "old lighters" to me. Will be interesting to see the official version.

I can hear that "old lighters" now that you've said that, which makes sense as fire starter material to go with the following lines

 

bear who was out eating just seemed like such an odd line so i wasn't really sure if that is what is was haha

Maybe it's "They buried me in a suit made of old lattice"?

That could also make sense! Great find!

That could be with Matt's propensity for lighting himself on fire, figuratively speaking of course.  ;)

I played the song on Spotify a few days ago on loud while cleaning my room. I remember constantly looking over at my phone in confusion "Did my phone just freeze?.. did the song skip?"

 

There's definitely something subtle but ebrupt with the mix.

Just wanted to correct some of the lyrics. It's:

 

magazines
mostly pages of Mother Jones and The Nation
Better Living
 
Mother Jones, The Nation, and Better Living are all magazines.

ah good catch!

 

it's like when you need a second pair of eyes to check something, but instead in this case we need another pair of ears. 

 

I'd never heard of the magazines (besides Better Living) so that'd never have crossed my mind

The vocal levels on the spotify mix don't really bother me, but then again, Source Tags and Codes by and you will know us by the trail of dead has the vocals buried in the mix as a creative choice and I've listened to that album hundreds of times:

Nice.  What do you think about the "suit made out of old lighters/letters" line?
