THD’s *Sleeper Daze*, reviewed

Crazy looks like fun
Good riff and vocal. Quite catchy and motors nicely. Middle and end waffle a bit.

It’s gotta line up
Great bass sound, great drums. I thought the riff was weak.

My bartender
This has the advantage of getting going straight away. The riff was Stones-y and good. Chorus frenetic and end weak.

Outside the door
Great live drums sound, good chorus and nice bass sound – guitar6?

Sleeper daze
Great big sound, but otherwise I didn’t engage with this one.

Jimmy says
Good chorus on this, although the tempo ramps up. Solo weak.

32d floor
I liked the sparse sound on this one. Guitar6 bass again? Simple effective riff, nice atmosphere.

Defenseless
This was the stand-out song for me.Excellent bass, strong moody atmosphere.

Your adrenaline
Wonderful thumping drums on this, but not much else

Wow, thanx for taking the time!

Outside the Door – Hohner headless w/ EMG’s into a Zoom MS60b w/ dynaflanger patch to Ampeg BA108 mic’d with a PV520I into The Brick and dbx 160xt, with a Meek VC3Q DI in parallel, panned 11:30 and 12:30.

32d floor – Hohner headless w/ EMG’s into aTech21 VT Bass and Ashdown Octave pedal to Ampeg BA108 mic’d with a PV520I into The Brick and dbx 160xt, with a Meek VC3Q DI in parallel, panned 11:30 and 12:30. Drums came as two-track from Snarl; I used EQ and gating to isolate the kick in mono, and brought that back in parallel under the original.

Your Adrenaline – Android phone mono recording of drums, heavily processed; “Sleeper Daze” has similar drums.
