Morning Alex!

Richard Spaven - The Self (feat. Jordan Rakei). A wonderful song with a fantastic drum work in it!! Probabily arranged in a odd TS.... couldn´t follow the beat. Great hint Alex thanks!!

I searched further in Internet about Spaven and found this one ( though, it is by Jordan Rakei feat. Richard Spaven on drums! ), and liked it more than "The Self".

Please have a great weekend too my friend! big grin :D

Alex, the song was new to me, I guess I missed that piece of history. I'm glad I finally got caught up. smile :)

Update*

I understand. No problem.

Hi Alex – Sorry for the late response.
“PAVANE – Percées”: An undertow of a busy percussive melodic theme that was not very interesting to be 7+ minutes long. It never really grabbed my mental attention except for a brief moment around the 5:01 mark. As always thanks for WE tip.
Have a great upcoming weekend.

Best Regards,
-Al-

Hi Alex!
I came here to thank you for your kind words on Distance, I'm glad you enjoyed it and I appreciate your ever careful ears.
But I left here listening to Tommy Thomas after reading the messages below. smile :)

Have a great day!

Hi Alex!!

Pavane with Percées: a rythm driven tune, with very subtle and well placed synth sounds. Even a nice melody in it, but it didn´t impress me.... felt nothing special listening to. Sorry. I think Al could like it, becuase of the interesting percussion arrangement ( though I don´t know what TS!).

Wishing you a great weekend too my friend, cheers to the music!

Alex
Just wanted to share my thoughts about Timmy Thomas's song. I Remember listening to this one and was impressed (as was most listeners) with simplicity of the drum rhythm yet having a mesmerizing melody and theme. Glad Spin pointed it all. Gotta go listen to it. smile :)

UPDATE:
yes Timmy Thomas used a very simple Drum-Machine ( there was no computer-vst yet!!), in fact the publicated record (1972) based entirely on the demo Timmy sent to the label studio... it was pressed as Timmy delivered, no further editing!! wink ;)

Hi Alex,
yes Timmy Thomas was the composer of the song "Why Can´t We Live Together". I am afraid that Mr. Thomas didn´t get any other great hits ( even if he continued his musical path ), but this one is special imho: in fact it was the first record using a "Drum Machine" instead of a drummer. As you mentioned Sade covered this song, but also Stevie Winwood, Santana and many others too... it is one of those songs that set a milestone for a particular period. smile :)

Cheers to the music Alex!

Hi Alex!
Hear & Now- Hirundo: strange, bei the first percussion beats I had to think to Thimmy Thomas´ hit "why can´t we live together".

A nice groovy tune, with a lot of space in between to let the mind walk away while listening. I liked your hint Alex, refreshing and smooth, thanks for the head up my friend. big grin :D

Cheers to the music.

Hi Alex -
Listened to "Hear & Now – Hirundo”. I've always been a sucker for odd time signature tracks especially 7/4. Nice guitar work. Thanks for the W,E Tip.
Have a great upcoming week.
