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

Wooo! Thanks for the nice comments and reviews everyone, good week all round. Enjoyed the podcast a lot, feels bizarre to hear The Lowest Bitter and The Spinto Band mentioned in the same breath. They’re actually how I first heard of Song Fight over a decade ago, when I came here and downloaded all t...

Re: Blowing through this town (Tumbleweed prefight)

In! Knew I wasn't gonna be able to find time to record vocals for this one so I've tried something a bit different and done an instrumental, ambient/electronic sorta thing.

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

My third Songfight! Now I have a better idea of the reviewing style here (much more critical than the big love-in I'm used to over at FAWM) I've been a bit more critical in my reviews. Hopefully nothing too harsh here, sorry for any offence. Some really good songs! Before reviewing everyone else, so...

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? I was going to say, if both songs are under the exact same name in the poll is the website sophisticated enough to keep them separate or will votes for both songs get mashed together?

Congratulations Balance Lost! Didn't get a chance to participate in or review this one unfortunately, but I did listen and yours was probably my favourite

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

Busy week! Just to check, there are two songs here listed to The John Benjamin Band, has he submitted two different songs or has someone else’s submission been mislabelled? And if it’s the former is there any way to subtitle the two different songs so there’s no confusion over which one of the JBB s...

Re: Porcupine

This is a song about how I find it difficult to sleep (and I actually mean sleep) with other people, and am just generally quite bad at being cuddly and fuzzy and relationshippy. Who's gonna stay the night with me? It's a hostelry of hostility After you fuck me, I'll just push you to the far side of...

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

Hey, I’ve been on holiday so not had a chance to listen and review yet, will try to tonight. Just a little info about my song; as I posted in the pre-fight thread, after the (warranted) criticism of my vocals for Bend The Knee I spent two hours working on better vocal takes for Hope Against Hope, pr...

Re: Let me twist your arm to write (Bend The Knee Reviews)

Thanks for the kind words, feedback on vocals is fair - I was very aware I could’ve done a better take but *excuses* in my defence I was also moving house that week and didn’t really have time to redo them. I think my vocals for Hope Against Hope are better, although I also think some of it is just ...

Re: Hope Against Hope

Inspired by the book 'One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich', set in a Soviet labor camp in the 1950s. The chorus hook is a direct quote from the book.

Re: Do we have a chance? (Hope Against Hope prefight)

https://i.ibb.co/ys3LBy1/2019-05-20.png So that's me out I reckon. Maybe I'll be able to come back to this tomorrow when I'm less angry but I've just spent 2 hours recording and mixing vocals, which were all inexplicably wiped as I pressed save on the finished project, and at the moment I kinda nev...

Re: Do we have a chance? (Hope Against Hope prefight)

Got a song down but haven't had a chance to record vocals yet, hopefully I'll get them done tonight though. Post-deadline I know but I've been told it's generally a little flexible. 🤞

Re: Let me twist your arm to write (Bend The Knee Reviews)

Really good set of songs! Gotta say as a Songfight newbie I’m impressed and a little intimidated by the quality of all of these. I reckon over half of these will be getting a vote once I’ve had a few more listens Budget Bears : This sounds like a Martha song - vocals especially - which is ace! Drums...

Re: Bend the Knee

Context: A few weeks back in the pub an unknown friend of a friend, on finding out I was gay, smirkingly asked the old “are you the man or the wife?” question. Aside from displaying an alarming lack of understanding of homosexuality, there’s a lot of judgement behind this question, that you are some...

Welcome! I'm tcelliott over at FAWMland. I'm probably out of this fight, but that just means I can root for you.
Ah another familiar face! Thanks for featuring a couple of my songs on FAWMtalk, looking forward to hearing your stuff in future fights

Re: Or else (Bend the Knee prefight)

Hey! Finally giving Songfight a go. Been doing FAWM for 7 years now I think, so I know a few names here (hey @vowlvom @owl, probably some others 👋). Anyway, my name's Jed, I record as The Lowest Bitter, my stuff isn't restricted entirely to one style but I do tend to gravitate towards synth-pop as m...
