A song written by Petra.

We'd been working on this since the first days of 2008...just finished the mix.
Petra's songs are always inspiring...i wanted to forget about our usual "gentle folky ways" for this one...and looking for some kind of VU & Nico vibe.... I hope it works for you all.
Thanks a lot Petra.
Peace.

Petra : lyrics and vocals
Me : other noises and vox.

What beauty - very theatrical, in some ways, but lyrical rather than dramatic, and certainly not over the top. Excellent songwriting and poetry, and a very neat production. I am enjoying thgis, and I'll hang on to it.

Gives me pictures. Amidst the smoke in a dark french coffee house, in a corner booth, sits Nick Cave deep in conversation with Leonard Cohen. A strikingly sensual woman comes down the stairs and their heads turn. She pulls a chair up to their table, puts a shapely leg on it and adjusts a stocking ... their eyes move from her knee to her face. She blows a cloud of smoke ... and addresses both of them ...
regards

You captured the VC/Nico sound perfectly, with perhaps Nice Cave and Leonard Cohen chiming in as well. Petra's vocal is mesmerizing and Dylan is full of soul. And the whole tune has a very fresh, original feel.

Very nice song Dylan. Petra really adds to the song, and I totally think she is Nico reincarnated. The guitars remind me not only of Velvet Underground but also Garbage ( the band not trash).

This must be a Leonard Dylan production!!!! but it is quite okay to dig Cohen!
Dylan you always make such high quality recordings, and the man/woman constellation
as vocals in a song, always gives the tunes an extra dimention I think...
And Petra is full of soul in her voice! BRAVO again!

Listener Interpretations: He spills his glass if white whine on the coffee table next to his mistress. The liquid rolls off the table onto her white evening gown. She turns quickly towards him, her white blonde hair shimmering under the halogen lights above. His apologies to her were deeps then she smiles as she places her index finger against her lips. Splay, across his face she screams, I Cannot Do This Anymore. She then gets up, takes the bottle of whine on the coffee table and pours it all of her body and looks straight into his eyes and then says, Hold Me, I am Cleansed!

Match made in Heaven!

Pros: Very, very Well Written (Structurally, Musically, Dynamically & Vocally)! Powerful, Imaginative and Breathtaking you two! Soothing & upbeat rhythm section (bass, rhythm acoustic & electric guitar and drums). You both have beautiful voices!

Cons: Very minimal, cymbals EQ is a little too much on the high end, there is also some ticking I believe is coming from his acoustic strings (your using a pick?). In addition, just a little hissing (more noticeable towards the fade-out)

Suggestions: Lower the EQ highs (just a smidgen) on the drum and/or percussion (cymbals) track and try applying a Denoising Plug-in.

This is a really nice tune. Very good track.. Petras songs and singing is blessing, so is yours, Dylan..

I don't know if it's my speakers, but the volume of drums could be a bit lower.. especially snare and the hihat on some places..

Great collab !

It is awesome when I can notice Petra's influences in Dylan's singing. And viceversa. This can only happen here.
You two are one of my favorite duets. I mean, each of you have a strong personal style, and when you sing together... you just make it work.
More, please.

i also here the cohen influence...which is a good thing, as his material is very dear to me. this is a wonderful duet. i can see the VU and Nico attempt here, but i think you two went WAY beyond them to greater places. i love VU, but truthfully i never heard them put out something this good. now, that's just my opinion...not trying to knock them, just saying this is an excellent tune that i couldn't see them pulling off. nicely done both of you, love it!
