I did explain why I'm submitting as Budget Bears in response to the last fight, if you're interested. I feel like even Micah would have done this particular bit of research ;)

Excellent podcast again though, Brian and Alice are such great guests!

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

New Ugly review of round 3 went up last night! http://podcast.songlander.com/?name=2019-05-22_newuglynurein14-3.mp3 Fun listen as usual - my apologies for angering you both by having a spare 45 minutes to send in a shadow song, thus undermining the integrity of the competition!

This song is like that 1 friend everyone has, that you really like, but he never knows when it’s time to go home.
Haha. I'm weirdly pleased with this criticism.

Also (not related to these reviews) I just woke up this morning with the BSS song looping in my head.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Four "No Memory"

I saw Jason from Grandaddy do a piano solo show last Friday! It was great, he's definitely one of the best singers I've ever heard live! He didn't play this song. I've never really considered their stuff to be chiptuney but I guess the lo-fi synths are close enough to count. Title: F . This song is ...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

Really interesting round. It didn't have the "every song is great!" factor that the diss track round did for me, but all of these were interesting and I really enjoyed listening, with a few particular standout tracks. Really good shadow entries, too! Abominominous - this is easily the weirdest song ...

Congrats Rain! Funny that you win immunity for the chiptune round in the week that you’ve revealed your chiptune expertise, I hope you’ll still submit a song! Some real surprises (to me anyway) in the judges scores again, looking forward to hearing / reading reviews! I’ll hopefully get mine posted l...

Yeah, really appreciate the detailed reviews, Leaf! I do a lot of in-car listening as well and it can really make a difference to hear the songs on headphones / decent speakers too.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

Vowl Sounds - Haha. Haven't heard that Robyn Hitchcock song in a really long time. Your voice sounds a little Sandy Denny-ish on this one. Or maybe a slightly less edgy Joni Mitchell. I like that the sample is built into the song (as I said earlier to someone). That's the best way to do this, I thi...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

Since it probably won't be obvious from listening to the song, I think it's important that I note here that I mixed and submitted our song while wearing this t-shirt.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

Thanks for the kind words, New Uglies! In terms of the Vowl Sounds process, the way it usually works is that I'll create a basic track and send it to owl, who will write some lyrics (and ask for any structural changes if required, e.g. this song was originally under two and a half minutes long becau...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

I'm curious to know who your original target was... although I guess if they weren't up for a dissing then you probably can't reveal that either! But I guess you'll have twice as many reasons to diss them now ;)

My most anticipated album of 2017 was 'Matchy Matchy' by The Ballet, which didn't end up coming out in 2017, so I guess I'll roll that one over to this year! Hopefully it's just delayed rather than cancelled, they don't have much of a social media presence so it's hard to know... Their last album, ...
