Thanks Jan! I really need to make a list of all the comments on the mix
and redo it. But we're first going to focus on recording songs.
The song itself is stripped to the bare essence, that's the way we work,
we write songs, strip them completely and then reconstruct them. This
time it resulted in a short song, but the songs on our first album for
instance all go way past the 3 minute boundary :)
The band is called Soda P : http://www.sodap.nl/
