I love that hit at around 1:45. This is a cool tune. I really enjoy this.

This is some rich instrumentation going on and brings to mind a street scene with some pedestrian activity. I really like the violin part, as for me, a bowed string instrument motif brings another dimension to a mix. Well done!

Wow, this is a really cool song. Melancholy. Chill. Nice vibe! When the violin comes in the energy shifts. Cool drums too. Nice work!

Listening to that 5-note figure go around and keep the wheel turning but always off balance is super cool (and totally good for broke down vehicle story). I like your dry violin tracks a lot. Most people add a ton of reverb to strings, not that that's bad or anything, but you kind of miss out on the sinew, which I think should be experienced once in a while, to remind us of real things.

I was waiting to hear that violin and was not disappointed at all! It sounds absolutely amazing! As does everything else. That melody line is sticking with me even after it is over.

I've never had a nice vehicle so I all too well understand the broke down vehicle poor boy blues.

Love this mood! A bit o melancholy with a bit of hope. The bass is *chef kiss* the drums are dope the violin is very cerebral. Well done dude! We gonna collab this summer? You’ve been on my list for a while now lol I’ll play bass or whatever you want

I'm liking the somewhat distant sound to this; like I'm in my room with the window open and this is drifting up from the street and I stop what I'm doing and just stand there so I can fully absorb the unexpected introduction of this music into my life.
Gosh, the violin line is so great.

That guitar sounds really cool. I was rocking in my hammock and absorbing the vibe. Another five minutes and probably would have drifted off to sleep, and I mean that as a compliment. I’ll just hit play again…
