This seems to be generating a lot less interest than the cover compilation did. People must really enjoy covers?
I think it's just that with covers, you can instantly recognize it and it piques your interest? With originals it's more putting yourself out there, I guess. Just basing it on the stats, there's about 1900 plays on the covers while the originals has 1400 as of today. However, soundcloud and bandcamp probably have different criteria for what counts as a play or something.

Hmm, well I guess it's fairly even then.. I thought I remembered the covers comp getting a lot more comments, but my memory has never been very good.

But I think you're right, it's easier to take interest in something you're already familiar with. Although I don't think that interest lasts as long as it does with an original song / something new.

It also might be due to when I set it to come out. I'm sure quite a few were gone on holiday, and I should've waited for a different day. Hopefully it changes for the cover comp/future comps.

I love the build up of this. The opening feels like the start of an epic Nike commercial. Gonna have to work my way through your albums, because this is right in the wheel-house of what Ive been listening to lately.

Good stuff, you do that!

I know I'm way late for this, but I didn't really know where else to submit originals for the next one, so here is a tune I put together tonight called "In Your Bones". It's got kind of a weird Brit-pop feel to it.

Here's another one I did as well called "Maybe", its more in the vein of How To Dress Well kinda stuff. Both songs are kinda unfinished ideas.
