Here at the Send Me Your Ears studio today, we’ve been listening to the latest single from one of our favourites, Spyderhuff. We’ve listened with interest as they’ve released singles from their SIN7 series of tracks, taking us through wrath, pride and more, and with this track, The More That I Get, the band reflect on Greed. The More That I get is released today, 24th March 2023, and this superb Detroit-based band have pulled it out of the park again with another highly infectious earworm!

The More That I Get focuses on greed and points out to the listener that it’s not just rich people that can be greedy – anyone can! There is some cool stereo and panning in the introduction, and an almost trip-hop-like drumbeat leads the way over a bluesy/funky electric guitar solo that just oozes attitude and confidence.

Heavily panned layered vocals fill the soundscape at one point, leading to a male vocal that sits clearly in the mix. The accompanying lyric video is superb and shows how Spyderhuff are constantly considering every aspect of their presentation and not just creating great music!

The rise and fall within this track is done well, and there are some fun stops with panned instruments and vocals, and throughout the track, there is always something vying for your attention.

The guitar soloing is sooo funky!! We loved this, and the deep strutting bass keeps everything moving along. If you’re not slow-nodding to this one, we’re not sure why!! This is super-cool infectious music.

The More That I Get is a great soundscape and perhaps more of an album track than some of their previous work. It is a song that we would highly recommend Spyderhuff seek out sync opportunities for, with a view to being placed in a movie or TV show to help increase the band’s fanbase.

With a long fade out, this is a song that you can just sit and mellow out to.

Ideas from our ears

To our ears, a high shelf boost set around 9kHz would increase the brightness and presence in the track. Also, a light compressor/limiter and maybe 3dB of make-up gain would add a touch more volume. A boost around 160Hz could add some extra depth and thickness to the bass too. As always, these are just some ideas from our ears.

Final thoughts

We are constantly impressed with the creativity and musicianship of Spyderhuff. This latest single is a Detroit-groove fan’s idea of heaven and one which will stick with its listeners for quite some time to come. A great funky earworm!
