Re: I Used To Know You Better

I Used to Know You Better by Lichen Throat I used to know you better when we’d play out in the desert, Ride bikes in scorching weather, and catch lizards in our hands. In dust upon the highway signs, right beside the painted lines, We’d write our names a couple times, then go back to my house. I us...

Re: Gristle in my teeth and a (Pocket Full Of Bones reviews)

With so many entries, I didn’t get to listen to the songs as many times as I normally do, so my reviews are based more on early impressions than usual. Balance Lost—I’m not sure what to make of the weird beginning, but I like the song overall. Your vocal sounds good, and all the instrumental changes...

Okay I can't go on any more - I don't understand the 'Better than kryptonite' reference and someone must tell me. Please?
I assumed it was a reference to the Spin Doctors' "Pocket Full of Kryptonite," but I'm not sure.

Re: Pocket Full Of Bones

Pocket Full of Bones by Lichen Throat I’ve got no bread, and I’ve got no meat, Tattered leather on my feet. Rich men strut in fancy clothes; Laughing ladies stroll with painted toes. As they pass, I see their sneers, All day long I hear their jeers. The time has come to seize the reins, Break the w...

You'll Know It When You See It

You'll Know It When You See It by Lichen Throat Coronado heard of the Cities of Gold, Closed his hacienda, put affairs on hold. Led an expedition to the land up north, Put his armor on like a conquistador. One month later they were hungry and cold; Many were no longer feeling so bold. “Señor, where...

Re: Drifting along with the tumblin' (Tumbleweed Reviews)

Balance Lost—The recording and mix sound great; all the instruments are clear and distinct. I found the first part of the song a little dull, but it gradually picks up steam, even before the big change at about 2:40. There are a few moments where you place the perfect chord behind the vocal (like at...

Re: Ye Olde Lyric Marte

All this week I've been a conference on sediment and hydrology. I got a little bored in one of the sessions on stream restoration, which resulted in the lyrics below for "Tumbleweed." This subject is obviously a bit esoteric, but feel free to use them, in whole or in part, as you see fit. Tumbleweed...

Tumbleweed

Tumbleweed by Lichen Throat Dear Natalie, Today I got up early and drove from Phoenix to Jerome. It was a cold morning, and frost was on the cactus needles and tumbleweeds, glittering in the sunrise. Later, I stopped at a roadside stand to buy souvenirs; they had Old West cowboy stuff, but all of i...

Balance Lost—I love the opening. The echo/reverb/delay/whatever-it-is on the vocal fits very well with the song. This is a good song—probably my favorite of yours that I’ve heard. Vote. Dimetrodon (me)—Well, apparently I don’t really know how to record live instruments. This is David singing and pla...

Dimetrodon I can't really make out the vocals because they're so far back in the mix. The guitars are also really messy. Are the lyrics about saying that people don't need to be visibly queer? Or is it an indictment against folks who want to be an individual, just like everyone else? Either way I'm...

Overall this is a good song—perhaps my favorite of your entries in this Nur Ein. Berkeley Social Scene—The guitars sound good throughout the song; I r...

Lichen Throat- Your vocals are less pitchy than usual, but there’s still a bit to go. This reminds me of
https://youtu.be/hQv6TNS9RG8. Similar groove. Fun song.
I misread the title of the song that you linked to as "I Eat Cannabis." I can see the resemblance to my song; thanks for the link!

Lichen Throat: The samples are a bit hard to understand, but I also just really like the fact that you're sampling The Sugarcubes in a song about Bleak House. (Where did you go on vacation?)
I went to Iceland, which was part of the reason for the Sugarcubes sample.
