Title: If Your Lord Deserts You-Adam Franklin
Post by: Adam Franklin on June 20, 2012, 02:56:03 AM
Here's a track from my new album, 'Til I Hear You Talkin'. It's an 'atheist gospel' song. They say the devil has all the best tunes.....

That's pretty wonderful, Adam. You nailed that 'Faith will see you through' feeling.

Thanks Gumbo, glad you like it!

It started off as a mountain/banjo/dirge thing, which I also recorded. At the eleventh hour, I pulled up this Willie Johnson inspired arrangement.

Thanks again!

Thanks Blue! It's one of my favourite tracks on the album.

Talking of which, your harp inst. on the 'Weenie' cd is great!

I liked this very much Adam, particularly the fast vibrato in your voice. I would have preferred a wood bodied guitar here I think but that's just me. I guess when people use a resonator I like there to be no damping employed at all or it can sound dead, literally like playing a dead cat. You don't sound like you're playing a dead cat but its a risk no one should have to take. :P I liked the slightly confusing juxtaposition between the form and the words. Atheist gospel as advertised. Really hangs with ya.

Thanks O'Muck!

I'm glad you like it, dead cats or not......

.....hahahahahaa. I think everyone should be made to take that risk.......

Thanks for compliments, Adam.
