Not to be a jerk (in other words, get ready for me to come off as a jerk)... but my advice, in all honesty, is to save up for a legit demo done by a professional. At the very least, have the drums recorded by a professional. That's the one thing that stands out the most as sounding like a basement recording, and that's a very common thing when it comes home recording. I say this because I think the song sounds like it has some potential to be great, with the proper treatment.
The guitar tones were a bit brittle, but I'd think a slight change in mic placement further away and further from the center of the speaker cone, and some eq'ing might help that.
I can't really pinpoint it, but I definitely heard a bit of over-compressing going on as well, though that could be a result of a number of factors.
I'm no expert by any means, and I hope you're not too offended, but that's my honest and unbiased feedback.
