Yeah, he did. Kino is pretty out there, cause it's just so good.
And right, that crude sounding guitar sets a mood no matter what you're doing while listening to it, and a mood which is just nice. Even if it's melancholic, it's simply right. Works to ease the mind. That much is easy to gather from it, but I think there's also that it feels very personal when it sounds so raw. It's as if you're in the same room as him and he's just playing some guitar to you because he simply feels like it, and you're both bored so why not. Even if in reality you're just staring at the computer screen, you kind of get the same mood that you would as if that really were the situation at hand, do you not? It just sounds like having company. Like this song in it's exact form isn't really something that thousands of others than you have listened to also, even if it's obviously the case. You do consciously realize that you're still just doing what you're doing though, so, I guess that adds to the kind of sad feel that somehow you enjoy.
A lot of acoustic tracks give the same feel of comfortable melancholy, but most of the time, at least from what I've heard, they still have some sense of production and "this song was made so you can listen to it later through a music player" feel to them. Does that make sense? Kino's track just makes me feel as if he's playing for his buddy only for the moment and isn't thinking anything of it, and letting his voice out as if that really is the situation. There are imperfections and all, but that just doesn't matter, it's simply making your time a little bit better and keeping you company. I guess that's why it feels as it does.
Even now while listening to that second song you sent, I like it and it gives me a feel that I like and all, I'll actually save that, thanks, but it doesn't give off the same exact mood. With that particular piece it just sounds completely raw and on the lower quality side, so, I don't know, I guess that makes it feel close to you and easier to connect with. But enough rambling.
I really like how the vocals are done on the second one there, I actually thought it was him mouthing things rather than talking at first, but I see that it's Spanish or something, no actual idea. But, listening to guitar accompanied by a language I don't even know is just such a comfortable feeling, you don't understand what's being said, but you definitely comprehend that it flows really well and comes out sounding great, it's like scat music if it were way slower paced and more meaningful, even while still being gibberish, lol, does that make any sense either? Sometimes I think that it would actually take away from listening to things like this if I did actually know the language. Being a stranger to what's being said but accompanied to the music is great, you get intimate with the sound if you listen to it enough, and you take your own meaning out of things like this. It's actually kind of an illusion break once I give in and look up the lyric translations for songs like this, because the meanings tend to stray away far from what I had subconsciously given the song. Which isn't a bad thing every single time, but, yeah, two sides of a coin. It's as if you were somehow best friends with someone and understood each other while not even being able to speak a language both of you understood. There are things in the world you really wouldn't be able to enjoy the same if you knew everything and anything, and maybe that's your one up over any god.
