Re: You can see quite clearly from up here (Black Mountain Reviews)

I suck at auto-tune (you might say I suck at singing to need to try and be good at auto-tune). This is one of those cases where I should have listened on other systems before submitting. I was rather horrified by the auto-tune affect when I listened in my car and at work. In the project with my hea...

Re: You can see quite clearly from up here (Black Mountain Reviews)

Bridger - I really like the way this starts with the arpeggio and vocals. It’s never quite as appealing to me once the big guitars join in but it’s well-written and performed. The vocals feel a little too dry to me and they get a bit overwhelmed by the guitar as well, but that may well be a conscio...

Re: Gift of Music 2017-2018

Here's my version of Regina Spektor's song "The Calculation", for Micah.

Thanks for picking a bunch of great songs, Micah! I really liked all four of them, and hadn't heard any of them before this.

Re: You Learned To Like It When (You Stopped Fighting Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - I really like the mix of the guitar parts on this one, the chorussy clean in the left ear and the crunchier stuff in the right ear. There are a few moments where the vocal melody maybe follows the instrumental a bit too closely and it sounds uninspired, but mostly I really l...

To date I've received only one submission, and we've only got a couple of days left. I'm going to extend the deadline to April 2nd, which is the first Monday in April, after which time I'll post what we've got.

Thanks!


How are we doing? A decent enough number of submissions?

Re: Proud to be the Envy of a Glutton of reviewers. (I'm A Sinner Reviews)

Vowl Sounds- Wow! That's a great song! Thanks! Reviews: Berkeley Social Scene - I really like the light-but-crunchy guitar sound and chord sequence, and the guitar solo / group vocals at the end are excellent touches. The song itself feels like it’s missing something to make it really memorable tho...

Re: Nur Ein XIII

This looked super exciting last year just when I was starting my illustrious* SongFight career and therefore I am also in, despite being On Holiday for most (but crucially not all!) of rounds 2 and 3.

* who am I again?

There's a Vowl Sounds song incoming for this fight, but I won't have time to mix it until tomorrow - hopefully that will be alright!

Sorry to hear about your computer woes TC, I hope you can find a fix / replacement. I'm tempted to have a go at some art, maybe...

Re: Gift of Music 2017-2018

Thanks from me too. I keep catching colds and the song I'm covering may or may not have a high note in it (NO SPOILERS) so I appreciate the chance to sing it with (hopefully, at some point) a fully functional voice-box.

Balance Lost - I think this is the first BL entry since I started songfightin', and since I've known you for a while I don't feel like I have to hold back with my criticism so I've been looking forward to being SUPER brutal. So here we go: I like this, it's good. You dick. Classic layered guitar ri...

Re: Get Out Your Telescope For The (Gamma-Ray Burst Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - I like the live energy to the recording and the chorus is punchy (although the backing vocals sound a little shaky). Good lead guitar work too. Dark Side of the Son - some nice guitar work right from the start, and the lyric is an interesting take on the theme (way better th...

(Vom Vorton) a day like any other that's the way it seemed until the earth was caught directly in a cosmic beam what was once green and red soon turned grey, cold and dead the cause of this sensation? intense distant radiation it can't last this world, you know what remains in the afterglow? nobody ...

Re: Can you see through the spam for the (X-Ray Specs Reviews)

2 Guitars and a Bass Live - this is extremely odd. Some amusing stuff in your fantastical ramblings and I like the conversational style. A fun listen but I guess a little too abstract for my liking. Jonathan Mann - I like this very much indeed. It has that soft, intimate indie-pop quality that Yo La...

Re: An Ellipsis is a series of... (Dot Dot Dot Reviews)

BSS - this is energetic and sounds like it would be great live, but I'm not that into the shouty vocal style so it doesn't quite hit that BSS sweet spot for me. The super-melodic guitar solo is great, though. Bombernaughts - absolutely love this one. The drum beat has a great swing to it, the synths...
