Re: DRIFT Episode 5 "GAME"
one other thing, the drums on the EP version of Tree & Two Chairs are crisper and more in the front of the mix

Re: DRIFT Episode 5 "GAME"
i thought it sounded a little more spare than i remember but i couldn't place it.
tbh i don't know if i miss it. it takes some of the floating points jazz out of it and makes it more ambiguous to me.


i've really fallen for toluca stars in a big way. could've still workshopped that beat a bit more but what surrounds it is just gorgeous.

Re: DRIFT Episode 5 "GAME"
admittedly my astonished first impressions got the best of me- Tree and Two Chairs is just as excellent without the keyboard. that's what being fanatical about this band does to you 😅

Re: DRIFT Episode 5 "GAME"
Thanks for th recap. I was just reading this thread and thought, "someone should compile these differences"

So, to recap:

Toluca Stars and Tree and Two Chairs with the missing piano parts are available to stream or purchase (up to 24-bit lossless) in the digital single versions.

The long version of Mile Bush Pride is available (in 320 Kbps MP3) as the free download.

Give Me the Room with the wonky stereo imaging, and S T A R with the last verse aligned to the downbeat are only available on the YouTube videos.

Re: DRIFT Episode 5 "GAME"
A fine episode, indeed!

What I'm really enjoying about the Drift EPs is the unique vibe. Despite disparate tracks, each episode has a distinct feel, like any curated album, like the awesome RiverRun series.

Am I applying coherence where none was intended? Maybe. Some albums and EPs just have a good flow and evoke a certain response collectively that the singles goes cannot. Hearing individual tracks, we have favorites and those we're not fond of. Put them together, and sometimes the sum of the parts is stronger.

That's what I've got from Drift. Not just 5 or 6 random tracks grouped for a release, but a consciously selected, thematically/emotionally linked (?) Collection. Mini albums in the classic album style. I give R&K all the credit for this genious. It could very well be that they just scrabled to get a new track each week, and the conceptualization is my own bias to love the band!

Re: DRIFT Episode 5 "GAME"
I'm guessing that's mostly planned. We know these tracks weren't just put out as they were completed. I agree with you, they mostly flow really well, although #4 still feels like a kind of random selection of tracks to me

In the film version, starting at about 6:30, the high bleeping line that comes in has a strong left channel presence through the end of the song. On the EP version, it's been centered much more. Also, Karl's looped vocal fragment that comes in at about 8:00 also has a strong left channel bias in the video version. In the EP that's been moved to a mild right channel bias.
So, I A-B'd this track a little more carefully, and I noticed several additional subtle differences. The chirping noise that comes in at 0:50 has a different pattern throughout its appearances between the YouTube version and the EP/album version. It's really easy to miss, and I almost had to map out the pattern to realize it was different in a lot of places.

On the EP version, the kick drum takes a two measure break at 1:53, while the YouTube version powers through.

On the EP version, a chuffing sound begins gradually fading out at around 6:35. On the YouTube version, it continues full strength until the string comes in at 6:51.

On the EP version, the string sound at 6:51 fades out much sooner at about 7:02. On the YouTube version, it continues until about 7:45.

I think the YouTube version must be an earlier version with the EP being a later, more refined version.
