Updated track: Silver Lining

Hi,

For you who remember I recorded a track called 'Silver Lining' about 1,5 years ago. It was in the first stages and since then I've worked with the awesome producer Golonac in order to tweak it a new more contemporary direction.  Since it's finished I thought it could be cool to upload both the first and last versions. Have a listen. Feedback apprecierad.

Cheers Marcus

Hi @marcus_jb - I quite enjoyed the new version - not quite my thing but it had a good feel.

And I absolutely loved the original - such a great sound and I'd forgotten how powerful your guitar playing is.

It's the sparseness of this (and from what I remember, a lot of your songs) that I find so appealing. It's something I'm keen to try with my own music - more of a lofi, sparse approach and resist the temptation of adding layers and try and let the song stand on it's own.

cheers

Hi Marcus, I really like the electronic treatment of your song very smart and subtle, it keeps the sensitive touch of the original, the drums are smooth enough and the melancholy of Mark Kozelek's songs fit perfectly with your rough springsteenesque voice !
Cheers

Thank you for listening and taking time to comment on it. Awesome to hear about the connection to Mark Kozelek's work. Truly a giant in many ways.Regarding this song, it was really special to hear my track through the ears of someone else (Golonac). Sometimes you get stuck in a specific genre and doing "collabs" like this really helps to broaden your perspectives.

@Jurgen
Thanks for listening and your feedback. I really appreciate hearing this from a fellow guitarist like you. I think my sound comes from the fact that I've never played in a band or anything. Sometimes it feels like I use the guitar as a piano. Long chords in order to create ambient landscapes. I've noticed that  many are focused on the technuiqal aspects of the guitar but that hasen't ever been interesting for me. I'm instead in envy of guitarists like you. You've really got that bluesy/rock vibe in many of your songs!

All the best and a big thanks for listening

Marcus

@marcus_jb reminds me of matt mays' work, you might like him.  check out "When the Angels Make Contact" album.
I like Matt a lot so this is meant as a compliment.

Thanks for listening and for mentioning Matt Mays. I've never listened to him until now and so far Heroine is my fav on that album. Really an amazing track. Minimal and heartfelt!  ::thumb::

Cheers Marcus

@marcus_jb The beginning of both versions reminds me a bit of the atmosphere you'd find in Talk Talk, later work - Spirit of Eden. Very dark piece of work. I think I like the original best. The emptiness makes a little misty and lonely, much more so than the update.

Wow thanks for mentioning that track. I've never heard it before and I really feel the connection to it! Now I got lots of great music to listen to.

Also a big thanks for the feedback regarding the track. I really like the original as well. I was really lucky to capture some kind of mood when recording it.

A big thanks for listening!

Best Marcus
