Paco del Stinko First Words : Love that open ringing snare in the intro. What I dig: Overall sound and composition – fantastic. This is class PdS stuff – left turns all over the place. I imagine you love doing what you do – so good. That lead synth section is fucking awesome. LOTS to love hear. Gre...

Re: Let yours fly (Freak Flag prefight)

Fussy Britches (me, Smalltown Mike and Leaf62) are up in this fight with a sweet little number that's sure to delight. :) Final mixing was today as I literally had to start tearing the studio apart 'cuz I'm moving this weekend. Finishing touches tonight and we're submitting. I suspect this will be ...

Re: Let me twist your arm to write (Bend The Knee Reviews)

Congrats to Gert! I just wanted to say thanks for the reviews everyone! Also I didn't know until now, but in regards to Gert... I found Song Fight! in 2008 thanks to Deshead (I think he had a blog or something about home recording and linked here?) and the album "SOUNDTRACK" by thehipcola was the f...

Re: Let me twist your arm to write (Bend The Knee Reviews)

Chthonic Doom First Words: metal! What I dig: The riffage. The name. The killer switch from the riff to when the vocals come in. Unexpected and totally awesome. That the guitars and bass weren’t so distorted as to lose their percussive drive when the vocals came in. What I can’t: The ending seems p...

Yah for sure - I've got to jump on Leaf's comments with a big +1. The podcast reviews are seriously cool and you guys do a great job. I love listening and arguing with you about almost everything - good naturedly of course. Opinions right? I super love that you love having beaten Gert. Cool twist. S...

Re: No escape from the reality of (Is This Real Life Reviews)

Great fight so far - here's half my reviews. More to come later. I'm half of OG Lawn Darts this time - thanks for the comments. ROCK. Paco Del Stinko- I dig this right away.. slippery and greasy. The semitone up the verses is cool. I like the lead break, especially the climb into it. Hard time to ma...

Re: It's Gone, Ruined, Broken... (So Much For That Reviews)

Wreckdom - classic Wreckdom. Not even sure what else to say. Music is dope enough. Vocals lost me after 20s. Lichen Throat - echoing the suggestion of trying to sing in a higher register... the music arrangement is cool - but the vocals need a bit of life, energy and with those, you might find the p...

Re: Hold me closer, Tony Danza (Hugs review thread)

Lichen Throat Is that an acoustic guitar sample? It's oddly stilted - not necessarily bad - just unexpected. I like that this piece is soft in it's vibe... I'm hearing bits of the melody coming through - keep working on it - it'll happen! I don't mind the music at all - it's calming somehow... cool ...

Re: Do You Have A Plan (on how you're gonna get your reviews done?)

Lichen Throat - loved reading the lyrics while listening. I dig some unexpected chord changes... keeps it fresh. Cool! Find the singing to be unfocused melody-wise, but that's either intentional or you're working on it - cool either way. Brisbane Social Scen e - moody, and I like it! Great vocals, ...

Re: Do You Have A Plan (on how you're gonna get your reviews done?)

Hey Chumpy - yah, you got it right with those backing vox - I throw them in a few different rooms, pick one (using Valhalla Room usually - great room verb) and play with the mix sit them back a little. Sometimes I throw a touch of izotope widener after the verb in the chain to spread 'em out. Andy (...

Flaming Tiger just sent in their submission Lunkhead - totally late. If it gets posted - we love you!!! If not - we still love you and will probably post it in the review thread for kicks anyhow. Thanks for all the awesome you do 'round here!

Re: Don't forget the torches (Pitchfork Nation Reviews)

The Pannacotta Army - I dig the drum sounds right away, kind of a “Cecilia” vibe. Ha - the singing/lyrics fit perfectly with folky vibe - love it. Great work. Pepper Jane - Really love the lyric pattern.. awesome. Not a fan of the telephone voice - feels too jarring/distracting. But the main sung ly...

Re: Five hours less than two whole days (Forty Three Hours Reviews)

'grats Jerkatorium. Well deserved win.

Someone commented on the melodic vs shredding guitar solo on Flaming Tiger - totally agree 100%. Problem is I can't shred at all. Not yet anyways. Working up to it.
