Ya, it is cluttered. The rhythm guitar and rhodes are fighting for space. Take off that stereo chorus and trem on the Rhodes, and pan it to the left. The Rhodes needs to be a much smaller sound, because it's only a padding part and just 3 chords cannot hold interest. Dirty up the ryhthm guitar too.

I like the rough sounding bass guitar loud in the mix like you have it. It's very nicely performed, there's great energy in it. I would dirty up the drums big time, use a break beat, or mix and match elements from a few of them, and put them through some low bandwidth effect. Take care not to loose the nice groove that's going on with the bass!

The style of the track is pulling in two directions- clean modern house (which I hate BTW) or a grungy Royksopp/ Zero 7 type of thing. I'd go with the grunge myself.

Lastly, that little picked electric guitar motif is buried. Bring that forward, it's nice. You could easily develop that into a hook line.

Now, rant mode: I hate that style of clean drum machine sounds and big wide Rhodes with the same 3 jazzy chords ad nauseum. It's boring. I just don't get why it's so popular.
