Default The Lost Songs of Jeffrey James

I recovered an old hard drive recently and found some songs that I made a while back and they are blowing my mind. I only have a vague memory of making these and I'm so happy I found them again. Here's a few, but I found 20 total and put them all up on my soundcloud. The ones I'm putting here are the ones I think have a cool psychedelic spooky vibe.

I will get around to this Jeffrey.

You know i'm a big fan of "spell" and that other one you did on the reel to reel. Can't believe "spell" has only being played 85 times, it's a god damn gem.

Hope these don't ruin it for me

high expectations

hah. Well... bear in mind they are b-sides, but I really like the vibes on some of these a LOT. I think you'll like "All this Wild" for sure.

I'm just listening to a couple of these now, and they are very nice. To me the first 3 in the set are like a mellow sonic youth.

Have listened through to 'Saint Imposters' good thing you recovered these songs, they are really interesting.

Listened to the lot, awesome! so infused with a sense of time and place, if that makes any sense.
None of the songs hold a candle to "Spell" imho, "All this wild" is beautfal but "Dimmed so dark" has something, feels on first listen to be a really strong song.

Petsounds!! the brass reminds me of pet sounds, love it. But not just that.. I'll listen again....

...Man that song rocks, It's like early leonard cohen added a track to pet sounds.

Funny msundh should invoke Jeff Buckley. I have an album of Tim Buckleys, which is not far off the sound of some of these tracks, not so much the arrangements as the moods or reflective qualities.

In my very humble opinion.........

Marvellous, all of it!

Make me a download, the money's yours.

Edit:

I don't need 950,000,000,000 bit sampling, I need music !
