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

Balance Lost - I was honestly pretty excited to hear an extended-length Balance Lost song, but the Radioheaddy stuff... eh, I dunno. I guess I just prefer your songs that are influenced by any other band in the world, they've never been my thing. There's plenty of non-Radioheaddy stuff in here too ...

Re: New Music Friday - 7/12/19

I have checked out:

Purple Mountains - S/T (David Berman from Silver Jews new band)
Tycho - Weather
Bleached - Don't You Think You've Had Enough?

Really enjoyed all three. Will have to give Imperial Teen a listen too, have really liked some of their stuff in the past.

Re: Don't get pricked on all of the (Porcupine Reviews)

That was excellent, sprawling and extremely detailed. I am fully down for more detailed post-Nur-Ein analysis (I hope that Niveous+Brookes recap still happens) and the commentary on the fight songs was good too! I feel like I'm missing out every time there's a podcast and I don't have a song up for ...

Excellent podcast again, super-detailed reviews and interesting to hear some tales of Olden Days Song Fight, when the reviews were brutal and Nerdcore reigned supreme. Probably. I really appreciate the effort you guys put into discussions of the songs, researching the topics and getting right into t...

Re: Massive X

I've never used Massive all that much either, but I tried out Massive X and it has some pretty nice sounds in it. I found the UI confusing at first but it quickly started making sense as soon as I started messing with it, which is a good sign. Some of the presets seem very CPU-heavy but I guess that...

Re: New Music Friday - 2019-06-28

I had a listen to the Freddie Gibbs / Madlib album. Not really my thing but the production is really nice. Also there's a new Whitney Houston song for some reason! So I listened to that. It was OK. Seems like quite a weak week for new stuff, although I guess I'd feel differently if I liked Thom Yorke!

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

Also I will volunteer to be a guest on the Songfight podcast whenever you need one, because I enjoy listening to those too, and I think you should do them for all the fights. I second this. We could even both guest at the same time for a Two Vowls, One Sound extravaganza maybe, if that's not a logi...

Hostess Mostess is in. Lryics by my daughter. Fathers Day songwriting and recording session.

It has been a while.
Did this song go missing? Or was it posted under a different name? Why am I suddenly thinking about this now?

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

I love it! I've always wanted to be a Muppet, and sing the best two songs of all time (Rainbow Connection and Message Received by Boffo Yux Dudes ;) )

And I also liked your last song, even if nobody else - including you - did! And I'm a Champ so it counts double.

Excellent final podcast, thanks Jerks! Sorry to hear it's been an exhausting experience but it really did help motivate me to work harder and turn out better songs, so thank you for that.

Re: Don't get pricked on all of the (Porcupine Reviews)

Don't get mad. They're just my porcupinions. Balance Lost - I had one vague criticism for this one about your voice sounding slightly tentative on the first verse or so, but listening back a few more times I'm not sure there's any problem with it at all. That's all I've got, everything else is great...

Has anyone heard from any of the podcasters recently? Everything has gone strangely quiet.

Does songfight.org still have that bug where voting for either one of those two songs will count as a vote for both?

Re: Finishing "No Memory" by Merisan

I listened to the new mix, then went back to the old one, now listening to the new one again. Definitely feels like a solid improvement to me, everything feels a little punchier but very much keeps that killer video game synthpop vibe. Definitely prefer the updated instrumental section without the g...

Finally finishing up my long-gestating reviews because I’m visiting family and they’ve decided they need to watch ‘Love Island’. ​​ ​​ Inflatable Vegetables - this is charming, funny and I think these are some of your best vocals - I love the layering and there are some great harmonies.

Re: The Guitar Doctor Is In

Thanks for the info, mo! Good to hear that it’s a decent guitar - I did basically buy it just for “the look” back when I used to perform live regularly so there wasn’t much thought given to how it would sound when I inevitably stopped leaving the house when not wholly necessary, a decade or so later...

Hey mo! This is a good idea thank you for your time. A few questions have been buzzing around my head of late, and I keep thinking about maybe buying another guitar but I'm not really sure I need one, so maybe you can save me money!
