Re: I don't care about your (Checkered Past Reviews)

Brown Word and the Big Whine : Churchy organ is comforting, and then the bizarre vocal and metal guitars chime in. This is like a lo-fi Mr Bungle. I couldn’t handle that in the 90s and can barely get through this one now. CazaroTaro : This reminds me a bit of Devo, especially in the chorus. It’s li...

Re: New Music Friday - 2019-08-08

One of my best friends from way back is based in LA. His band released a new single. Their debut EP came out earlier in the year.

Which Wave - https://www.whichwave.net

LA psych rock, with bands like Love and the Brian Jonestown Massacre as touchpoints.

Re: Prepare to elucidate (The Way It Isn't Reviews)

Coming in after the starting gun went off, I felt I really needed to at least contribute some reviews this round... Balance Lost - This is so shimmery and slick sounding. You maxed the loudness pretty high. I took a look at the wave form, and as I suspected, except for the brief intro, outro and bre...

Re: Your favorite music podcast?

The Trap Set, which used to focus solely on drummers, is solid. Marc Maron often interviews musicians on his WTF podcast. The Talkhouse also has great moments.

Re: Nur Ein Site Redesign

Been using this lately to re-acquaint myself with songs from this year's competition. Overall, this is a nice upgrade. Some feedback: o It is not clear how to play a track. Can you put a play button right next to the song in the list, like in SoundCloud? o The site itself is very narrow, but the pla...

Re: Acting on Song Fight feedback

There are some really thorough and thoughtful responses here. Thanks, everyone, for contributing. Fundamentally, it gets to the heart of what Song Fight is about, at least for me.

I started working with BSS and doing my own submissions only this year. In that short amount of time I have noticed themes in feedback I have received. Some of it I agree with and want to act on and some of it, well, the constructive feedback anyways... even if I agree with it, I may actually consid...

Re: Would You Believe..... (Hope Against Hope Reviews)

Thank you both so much for taking the time to really listen, take notes and write in-depth reviews. I am going to try to ...

Re: Would You Believe..... (Hope Against Hope Reviews)

This is a collection of hippy dippy songs. Mostly. Cybronica - You have guts to put a long, minimalist, slow, tender piece on SF. You have done some solid work with your lyrical layering. I feel like it would have benefitted from varying using a single vocal at times and not just harmonized vocals. ...

Re: Songwriting competition judging mechanisms

Seems like you're asking two different things - one is how to arrive at more consistency for judging in general and another to bring over more enthusiasm to SF. I think a conference for judging is unrealistic for the reasons you state, but I also think it could be bad because some judges will be bet...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Five "Where The Streets Have No Name"

Berkeley Social Scene ...so I guess the one thing I’d like is for the lyrics to be smoothed out a little more. For instance “terrible place”...”terrible face”... I'm not sure if I'm getting you here, but the use of these specific words in this way was intentional - it's a reference to Where the Wil...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Five "Where The Streets Have No Name"

This is a really solid round. Not a clunker in the bunch. More than ever, the judges are in an unenviable position. Nit-picking it will have to be, and, clearly, because of whatever seemingly arbitrary criteria they use, hellfire will be sworn up and down the boards at the result. Judges, whatever y...

Berkeley Social Scene - "....Not sure exactly what the story is..."
This is why I posted a painting of a minotaur along with our lyrics.

It's the story from his perspective; the labyrinth is where the streets have no name.
