    "the wild animals", 2nd mix

    Sign in to disable this ad


    geek stuff:
    a non mastered file, i mixed this into a Limiter across the master bus, and output at 16 bit 44.1khz.
    it's about -12rms.

    mix issues working on:
    kick-bass-snare lock
    low end tightness versus fullness
    how much more high end does this need.

    sounds great to me. I think once you tighten up the low end a bit more, the highs will fall into place.

    I think your bass tone suits the material and fits well with the guitars. I'm not hearing any deficiencies in the high end. Great job as usual on vocals. My only nit is the snare sound is a bit flat and plasticky. It's a cool tune, nice job

    hey musicgeekand lvr, i'm working on tightening that low end now, and also clearing out some blur on the rhythm guitars,
    that is opening up the high end a bit without having to change/add anything.

    thanks for listening and commenting,
    i'll post an updated mix soon

    Hey Jeff,

    Haven't listened to a new Bats Brew tune in a while ... Fun song, with a touch of t-rex ...

    I like the snare sound, IMO it's too forward and could use some taming
    I'd hear the drums drier, reverbwise, but that's an opinion
    I wish you'd post the lyrics, because they're terrific
    The sound of the bass guitar is the best I've heard on a rock song in awhile

    In the end, nothing to complain about, great guitar sounds!

    Timbo
    I've got a fun new Christmas song out, The Elves Christmas Song!

    Another cool tune. Got a great 70's -ish vibe. Thanks for sharing.
    Wow, now I feel really stupid. Thanks.

    lyric by request:

    The Wild Animals

    Just because they smile, and grease back their hair,
    Doesn’t mean there’s any kind of heart in there
    They’ll give you pellets of poison to put in your tea,
    They say there’s nothing phucking wrong with me

    Please, do not feed the wild animals
    Better left alone, the wild animals

    It’s a kick back, kick YOU, nothing you can really do,
    If you give em a chance, they’ll chase you into the
    Afterlife too!

    “lets book a trip to the Riviera, Sarah, bring the doctor along”
    “nobody will miss us back home”,
    When the sh!t goes wrong

    Please, do not feed the wild animals
    Better left alone, the wild animals

    It’s just the modern chemistry, the artistry of grabbing by the short hairs,
    They stay awake at night, and they count their money til the
    Morning light

    It’s a cautionary tale… that we all can relate
    It’s a taste of a real time devils delight
    At the cocktail party, or the local church family affair
    The poison pellets are playing truth or dare.

    Please, do not feed the wild animals
    Better left alone, the wild animals

    hey bulls!
    thanks for the comment on the bass, i've been working on that more than most anything else...
    problem is, i don't remember what i did!!
    LOL

    like, maybe i should keep a notebook, for h3ll's sake!

    i've started over with snare, as you suggested, it needs more meat and body. i'm on it!

    hi yellowdwarf!

    thanks for coming back for a listen...
    droppin' "T rex", whoa....
    i mean, i guess he was never an influence, but damn, he's been there all along, in most of the stuff i like from that earlier time period...
    everybody was influenced by the electric warrior.
    cool.

    lots of comments on the drums, as i expected, and most of them have sent me off in the right direction..
    i've changed the entire kit a bit,
    i'll post an update.

    hey fuzz, thanks for listening, yea, i was influenced by a lot of 70's rock,
    but this one was more directly influenced by, say, QOTSA
