My track I'm struggling a bit with at the moment. Let me know what you think about the mix and everything else.
quite upbeat and sprightly, that shuffle i feel like theres a weird reverb on the drums though, and they sound too sequenced for the organic quality of the rest of the track. the sub bass is humming along nicely, maybe a tad too strong? feels like it's booming a bit. cool airy chords. the break is really quiet for a longish time, maybe some more stuff to listen to in there would be good. when the drums come back, it doesnt feel like a natural song structure, more like you needed to go there again and didn't care how, a better buildup could fix that. i think i know now what irks me with the drums: the hats are really attacky and harsh, and happy/proud, while the rest of the track is melancholy/contemplative, and it clashes a bit. consider maybe changing the whole percussion im liking the twangy chorus, i feel like it would work even better if you made the twang rarer, restricted it to a couple of effective places. i love it when a track has those unique moments that make you go back and listen to the whole thing again just for that one perfect second.
anyway good luck
