Post by GlennCase » Fri Nov 30, 2007 4:30 pm

Vote for your favorite "Soft and Wet" Purple Reign submission.

Feel free to talk about the songs in this thread until we're smart enough to create our own message board.

Votes will be tallied until roughly 11:59 PM (PST) on December 15th, 2007. The songs with the highest vote count from each title will be featured on purpletapes.com as the "voter's picks" on (or around) December 16th, 2007.

The compositions with the four highest vote counts will be featured on the purpletapes.com myspace account unless an artist that created one of the top four doesn't want it on Myspace.

Sausage Boy - If I were Timmy the Tapeworm i could probably take some lessons from stuff like this on how to make sound-art paltable to those people who want to like the artsy side of thangs but can't put up with total ear-spunk. That said, it's possibly a little long for what it is? I mena, oh gosh, I liked it, but I was kind of glad when it was over, which is meant to be a total compliment.

Wages - Oh yeah, I love it when you do this lou reed style stuff (well i hear lou reed anyway) - i can hear do-wopping feamle backing vox under the chorus. This is great, and almost certainly has my vote. Sexy and sad is always appealing to me.

TtT - actually this is my favourite thing you've done in this thing so far. It has variety. That said, it's still not very good.

CLMG - not as cute and charming as maybe you think it is. But cute and charming nonetheless. I think i am being a little unfair in comparing everything you do to terms of the 9 songs you recorded, but my feeling is this - had the other songs you'd done been more finished up and tight, I would have been much more well-inclined towards this one. I hope you take that in the way its intended, an honets bit of helpful criticism, not just glib sourness. Hey I voted for you once, it's gonna take a lot to get anyone onto my compliation twice!

Sausage Boy: Quite a scarey little number, strangely enough I can hear this done in a really ethereal poppy kind of way, think I may stick this on my 'to do a cover of' back burner, interesting soundscape, probably needs something in a higher register to keep the ear interested, otherwise it's a little long. 6/10

Wages: Very plaintive and distant vocals, not the usual wages style, and I have to say I'm liking it, the spoken style reminds me of the blue aeroplanes, with a touch of pulp thrown in for good measure, slightly sexy undercurrent too. 7/10

Timmy the Tapeworm: I'm so glad your stuff is short! 4/10

Chopped Liver Meat God: Absolutely gorgeous but at least 2 minutes to short, what you've produced there would make a stunning climax to a good pulsating indie/rock masterpiece, problem being you forgot the indie/rock masterpiece to go with it. 6/10

This one was a tough one and therefore the first to justify a post to go along with my vote. Although I've liked the Wages and CLMG I have heard previously I wasn't feeling these as much for some reason.

Then left with Sausage Boy and TtT there was a clearly superior track, Sausage all the way.

As an industrial / noise man myself I absolutely agree that TtT could learn from Sausage boy. Noise does not mean random garbledy-gook. A fax machine could've made that. On the other hand Sausage boy had some great additive arrangement and noise subtleties that would make Throbbing Gristle proud. All I'd add would be a breakdown somewhere around 1:30 to 2 minutes to break the monotony.

Sausage Boy - What a sad, sad state of affairs when statements like "clearly superior track" and "take some lessons from stuff like this" are applied to sausage boy drivel.

Wages - This is alright. I'd like to hear this once j$'s wopping female vocals are installed.

Timmy the Tapeworm - Nice and short again... and the introduction of 'vocals'. Ah, the evolution of the artist.

Chopped Liver Meat God - Is this supposed to 'connect' to your song Baby? More diaper changing references are needed.

"Soft and Wet" Reviews

Sausage Boy: Aww, a beach day. But wait, there's guns. It's like the beginning of Saving Private Ryan. Soft and Wet wounds. Points for going in a very different lyrical direction than most would. This song has its good points but it's lyrically very repetitive and never feels like it really gets off the ground.

Wages: Acoustic sex rock, huh? I'm just not digging it. Did you say "Fuck the duck"??? What the hell? Now it's just silly.

Timmy the Tapeworm: The most inspired TtT song I've heard so far. I think if it was longer, this could be something. There are some squeaks of girl voices as if you cut up a porn and made it noise. Potential.

CLMG: An otter. That's cute.

Vote goes to Sausage Boy

Sorry, all I could find is this one of Caravan Ray, but he's an Aussie hillbilly, so it should work. Image

He's going to show up and complain that you're once again confusing Aussie and Kiwi.

Sausage Boy - Seagulls? An elevator from SimTower? Guns and explosions? What is going on here? What are you singing? Sorry, dude. This is dangerously close to complete garbage. Okay, so it gets better as it goes. But uh...this is rough, man.

Wages - Yeah, you're not really selling the acoustic sex angle. I'm not sure about starting out a song talking about "her mound." Weird how you emphasize the t at the end of twat. Lyrics are just...bad all around. Oh, man. Fuck a duck? Seriously? What is wrong with everyone on this round?

Chopped Liver Meat God - Well, this one has pop sensibility. Unfortunately, there wasn't time to make this a full song. As Nigel said, this is the climax to an indie rock masterpiece that doesn't exist. Well, bloody hell. I don't mind listening to that as much as the other stuff, but I'm not going to use up a public vote for self on this snippet of junk.

What a shithouse fight. Too bad Jute Gyte didn't get a song done. I think the real winner of this round is Prince. Have you listened to what he did for this title? Great stuff.

This is all awful, so I'm voting for Phil to try to force a tie...JUST TO BE DIFFICULT (TIE-IN, YES; BONUS POINTS FOR ME).
