really like the first, could i download it? I feel the second would be better without the effects on the voice... But still nice
Intro to Purple Painted Blues made me think of the music of Deadwood. God, I loved that show. I really like the singer's voice. That guitar line is nice and minimalistic, which is a nice counterpoint to the wanky crap I normally listen to. Is that an acoustic bass in the background?

I'm with Tune my fork on the second song. The vocals need to get rid of that annoying damn effect. The really dressed-down sound you had on Purple Painted Blues really sounded great. This sounds over processed and the beauty and nuances of your vocalist's voice didn't come through at all. Just let the lady sing and this song will be a dozen times better.

Speaking of wanky crap....
