[Baritone] Vlantis - Green Grass of Tunnel (Múm cover)

Here is a cover I made of a Múm song. It's part of a cover EP I'm finishing up to get me back into music mode and complete my "actual" next release. It's a simple take on the original. I still need to do some tweaking.

EDIT: My youtube vid already has a dislike. It might be a case of sounding better in context with the other songs, or perhaps my self-indulgent singing voice is better suited for other stuff.

EDIT 2: I'm flat when I say "fall asleep." I will be correcting that and a couple other vocal glitches.

after just listening to the original I was hoping for an electro almost vapor wave cover, which is not what I got listening to your cover. Pretty good, but is not what I was hoping for.

Sorry dude, I don't even know what vapor wave sounds like (but I know the term!). I'm very uncool.

When I cover stuff I try to make it as different as I can from the original, since it's more fun for me. The original has a lot of elements and is pretty ethereal (and very electronic), so a straightforward three-chord piano thing seemed like an interesting idea.

Thanks for giving it a listen, though.

I was really hoping for a bigger instrumental climax or drastic change in instrumentation toward the end, but TBH your vocals make the entire track anyway. I checked out the video for reference and honestly I wouldn't even know this was a cover if you hid them far enough apart on a mixtape. Yours is obviously better, but maybe I just don't appreciate the original.

This is totally unexpected from you though, and such a drastic change from your usual style. I'm glad to see you're making a covers EP but I'd be really interested in hearing some originals in this vein, FWIW. I think you've really come a long way with this, in terms of both mixing and singing. This is good stuff.

Awesome, holy shit, thank you so much!

Yeah, it's kind of a relentless three-chord piano assault. I think I need to get some more nuance in there velocity-wise, but that's why I posted it in the LB. Again, I think it works better in context with the rest of the EP, as the other tracks have much more going on.

All of the music is finished for my next release, and I have temp vocals for three songs finished. I lost my my slowly-growing music vibe when I moved in October, but have been getting it back. My IDMf50 submission is along these lines, so we shall see....

Thank you again for the kind words. My style and mixing continues to change, and I quite like what I'm doing, it just takes me longer now.

Edit: I would PM you some stuff, but you have that option disabled?
