After listening 4 times I can say this is really outstanding. The drums from the Maria Schneider Orchestra really make the difference. If this was an electronic production, there would be less to enjoy musicwise in this new David Bowie song called Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime). The vocals are spot on, and the orchestra builds up frantically while a soprano saxophone somewhere in the distance adds details.
Compare this to what? It is unlike almost anything Bowie did – and that is a hard act to follow. Might remind us a bit of what Bjork did with Big Band settings (It’s Oh So Quiet). And somehow Zappa comes to mind (Grand Wazoo) – if you leave out Bowie’s vocals.
A try out of two new VST’s. The Redtron is emulating a mellotron quite nicely, and the KX-Polm-CSE is a modern sounding synth with an easy interface.
The latter VST can be downloaded from this site:
New on soundcloud – 4 guitar parts, 4 vocal parts and the rest soft synths.
This song is about reading, hearing, seeing the news. It is not alays what you think, and one should be critical of any angle the media and politicans throw at us.
Thanks to Pleudoniem and Mark J. Bennett for commenting on an earlier version.
