I'm eagerly waiting for the podcasts.
Has anyone heard from any of the podcasters recently? Everything has gone strangely quiet.

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

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...

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

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. It might not...

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...

Re: The Guitar Doctor Is In

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! I play an Eastwood Wandré, which looks like this (but orange), it h...

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

Thanks Frankie! Thinking about giving judging a go next year but will definitely be around in some form. Does anyone have a favorite song of the whole Nur Ein? Like if you had to pick one song that in hindsight, now is the "best" single song, what would you pick? I've got a few favourites, not sure ...

Congratulations to Agony Sauce for a superb final song and to Glenn's dogs for their featured vocal that carried us to victory and also to Max for writing considerably more songs than everyone else.

I remember getting similar comments re: vocal doubling before, most notably in the TMK Kim Deal entry, which had a pretty shit vocal performance and I've taken note since. This time, I've listened again, and while I acknowledge it's not Taylor Swift-perfect, and I probably just about had time for a...

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

Thanks Sam!

Really enjoying the final songs and the shadows. Amazing work from Max Bombast! And do I hear clav and synth arpeggios on that Mandibles song? Jerkatorium will be after you for stealing their sound ;)

Mildly tipsy reviews between Nur Ein mixes! I listened a couple of times when they were posted and now listening again as I write. Balance Lost - love the music on this one, there are a load of interesting jangly guitar layers that would put this musically on the Balance Lost top tier for me. Vocall...

The Vegan Wigs were actually our main political party in the 18th Century, if I'm remembering correctly.

Re: Acting on Song Fight feedback

This is definitely an interesting question. Music is so subjective that I've often found the idea of constructive criticism in this area to be quite tricky - I think I generally try to phrase my own reviews / comments in a kind of "I liked these things but not these things and that is why this one d...
