Back Home To Blue - HB Mix
Had a listen to quite a few mixes before posting and I was surprised how many different arrangements there were. Love mixing this band as the lead vox is great and the songs are nicely crafted.

Listened to a lot of Natalie Merchant's album "Tiger Lilly" as a reference - hence the fairly bright country rock feel. Left pinched harmonics on the bass at 0.24 and 3.44....50/50 call on whether to remove...

RE: Back Home To Blue - HB Mix
I agree, the songs are great and I love how they were recorded. Like what you did with the DT track. Didn't think of using it that way in my mix, I opted to used it as a reverb/delay source.

There are a couple of moments in the song where the bass plays a harmonic, you need to take a look at those as right now they do make a gnarly popping sound (there is one around 3:44). Other than that, I'd lower the kick some and take the both the overheads and bass down a notch. It is punchy though.

The mix overall is pretty bright, it's nice to see how everyone does this differently for sure Smile

RE: Back Home To Blue - HB Mix
hey whoosh -thx for listening and for your comments Big Grin .

I wasn't a fan of the pinched harmonics on the bass - It feels like one is left hanging somewhat as a listener....and i agree that they sound pretty terrible. I was going to replace them but figured the band liked them enough to include them in their track list.....and i sort of forgot too Blush....but for sure, in a commercial situation i would strongly suggest getting rid of of them

Yeah, they do sound nice on the recording, but making them work in the mix was kinda hard. Like the new version!

that's a good way of putting it....i thought they sounded pretty good soloed too.....but in the mix....a big fat pop. Glad you liked new version.

cheers
