a cover of "photograph" from the green album...tell me what you think! :)

hey friends and fellow weezerites (weezonians? weezervillians?)

my band, Gravity Wins Again, have covered the classic green album track "photograph" as a tribute to weezer and have put it up for you guys to listen to over at www.gravitywinsagain.com

unfortunately we can only stream it, but hopefully you guys will like it :) please leave a message on this thread if you listen to the song and want to let us know what you think (please be gentle) :)

thanks guys - by the way, we are based out of cape town, south africa. any other weezer fans from the south on here?

thanks for reading and (hopefully) listening.

Dude, sweet. You guys nailed it.
Good job...it sounds great! How were the drums recorded?
pretty standard drum recording...although we did create a drum tunnel to get a bit more low-end out of the kick. SM57 on snare top and toms, not sure of the overheads though. here are a few pics of the drums in-studio:

Interesting set-up. I've never seen a "drum tunnel" before, haha!

ya, i know its something some bands have done (jimmy eat world, etc.) and we just weren't getting the right sound out of the kick, so our engineer tested it out and amazingly it worked. oh, the kit was a pearl masters series custom kit as well, with zildjian cymbals and vic firth sticks and a dw 5000 pedal, if you wanted to know the drummer-y little details, ha. drummers, they're a strange breed.

not bad... but I would pull back the vocals in the mix, they are a little hot. that's just how i prefer to mix though.

I would 86 those auto tuned backed vocals.

love the name too, btw. is that a reference to futurama?
thanks for your input mate. it is INDEED a futurama reference, nicely spotted ;)

and funnily enough, hardly anyone makes the connection :) that's why i was impressed.
the line is brilliant that most people just simply miss it.
