“Feel My Pain” – MP3

Kurt writes :

This track was recorded during the first cluster of sessions at Dreamland Studios, May 2012.
(same sessions that conjured up most of album opener “wakin on a pretty day” I should add!)

“Feel My Pain” is a particularly meticulous guitar composition that i remember playing over and over back when writing it and then even more so when i had finished it, sort-of possessed.

We added a lot to this later only to strip it back again favoring the raw to the chamber-pop this go ’round. Spectral arrangement and a mellow-ominous delivery (if such a thing is possible)…

  1. Cool… Also, any chance of a KV compilation scooping up the “Square Shells” EP + singles etc? Thanks! For whatever reason, “Square Shells” is damn elusive on vinyl.
