Re: Two Bits To Pay The (Toll of the Inferno Reviews)

Macaque Attack: I love the instrumental and the production. The vocals are maybe a little up front. The lyrics would be a hit at college, but they're a little on-the-nose for me. The piano is good though. This track definitely has it's musical catharsis, but the lyrics just didn't pull through it. M...

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

I wrote two songs this weekend. One was for the Toll of the Inferno fight. The other was this one: Megaberth.

Re: Toll Of The Inferno

"Toll of the Inferno" by Praise Muzak Burning tables in the back yard Ash floating like your dumb bard Fresh kids in the dead leaves Petting dogs and the dogs' fleas Eye crust when I wake up Got meds so I take some I'll depend on my thinking to be better in the next life In the fur Inferno It tolls ...

Re: It burns! It burns! (Toll Of The Inferno prefight)

Just submitted my song (Praise Muzak). It's my first in a long time to not feature an acoustic guitar and the first ever to feature a plastic "piano horn" that is meant to be used as a child's toy but actually sounds pretty dope, imho.

Re: Tyrants' tantrums (Kiss It All Goodbye prefight)

I think I might be in this one. This will be the first thing I've recorded in my new house. It might have a little extra noise due to not having figured out a good recording situation yet, but who has time for that? I'm feeling a little Bill Callahan influence in this moment.

Re: 10/31/16 What's your spookiest song?

That's really cool. If Trent Reznor ran a haunted, polka house. :o

This one is probably the closest I've come to a "spooky" song. Nothing supernatural about it, but the vibe + lyrics have always felt like the kind of feeling that occurs when reality blurs.

Re: 28/9/16 Where are you?

Some friends of mine just moved to Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. I don't know anything about it, but they said it's the Australian equivalent of moving to Alaska. At least that was the word of a couple Americans who had yet to set foot in the place. Anyway, I live in Athens, Georgia, mayb...

Re: 9/6/16 Are you on Soundcloud?

I've considered hosting individual songs on Soundcloud but haven't made the decision to do so yet. What are the upsides of using Soundcloud vs. putting everything on Bandcamp, which is what I currently do?

So, if last week's entry received any votes in this week's fight, can I maybe save those votes as credit for use in future fights? 8-)

Re: Where's That Damn Remote? (Turn Off Your TV Reviews)

I just noticed my song (Praise Muzak) from last week's fight is posted on the Turn Off Your TV fight. I don't know why that is, though it should be taken down since it was written for Turn Off Your Phone and participated in that fight.

Hmmmm. I only see four submissions in the fightmaster mailbox. I see BSS, Paco, The Grim, luntar. No sign of any songs from Sober or Pepper or praise muzak or whatever. If you've sent your songs in and aren't BSS, Paco, The Grim, luntar, you should probably resubmit. Dang it. :/ Just saw this now. ...

This is my first fight in quite a while. It's good to see new faces, and a few old, here at Songfight. Overall, I really enjoyed the variety in this fight. It speaks to a healthy community that so many songwriters are submitting so many different types of songs. Speaking of which, here we go... Maca...
