Dreams Mr. Troll

the overall sound isn't horrid - for what appears to be a live recording. the guitar could use some eq work to eliminate what appears to be a cheap pickup sound but the mix with the vocals ain't bad and the fact is - it's so simple and intimate, and the guitar is just support for the vocals - that sorta makes it ok

speaking of which, the vocals are the song. simple, pitch problem'd simplistic but in turn - it's accessible and pretty charismatic. the lead singer needs a bit more microphone experience (presence) but he has some pretty nice lines lyrically that fit so well into a very very americana vibe here.

to add to that - the backing vocals, pretty authentic sounding folky shit there ... maybe a bit overdone in the mix at times but if that's the live sound, must be the band (duo + 1?) likes it that way. I know I found it relaxing and pretty laid back cool. easy to listen to. simple and pure.

it's endearing. and enticing. and an easy winner for this round of 2, on songwriting alone - much less the superior performance. this song feels real. and natural.

and that'll win over poeple.
