Wow! I've been in three Nur Eins as a participant and another one as a judge, but this must be my favorite round zero title and challenge. What do you guys think?

I'm sorry I can't do it this year. But for the best of reasons: my current musical project streams shows live on a weekly basis and takes a huge amount of creative prep time. Also working on a new record. I'll follow along!

Welcome back Carlo!
When Carlo Bruno Jr. is in, you know it's gonna be a good Nur Ein. :)

Sent in a track. The siren in my song is a theremin, doubled by an oscillator VST during the instrumental bridge. Lyric refers to certain scumbag politicians (not Trump, although the lyrical message fits the Orange Clown just as well, I guess.)

:shock: :roll: :oops:

Seems something went wrong with my selfsabotage skills: I made a song titled "Trial OF Fire" and open the Lyrics thread with same mistake. Shame on me!!. That was the literal translation from "Prueba de fuego" in spanish. Hope the judges punish tenderly that shitty opening entry...

Thanks Noma!!, always a pleasure back home in Nur Ein.

@carlo - *crosses fingers* less than 25 entries and it won't matter anyway.

Plus it shouldn't be too hard to overlook such a minor imperfection even if there are 26+

Our song is kind of a retelling of The Scarlett Letter from the perspective of Hester Prynne. Full band recording in our rehearsal studio!

Credits:
R. Brookes McKenzie - vocals, Omnichord
E. Niveous Rayside - guitar, backing vocals
Tom Q. Urwin - bass, mini-synth
Ellen Croteau - drums, backing vocals

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw me enter this competition with both Cavedwellers AND a new joint called Mandibles (Cybronica, Zidong and I).

I guess it’s pretty serious.

Round 0 Listening Party is tonight starting at 9pm EST -
We begin with Round 3 of SpinTunes - they have 13 new songs - then we move on to Nur Ein and a dozen + songs so far.

I'll repeat both contests for those sauntering in a little late. Drop by, hang in the chatroom with the artists who wrote the tunes, and drop some words of wisdom.

The songs will be up momentarily. Just had some issues with two of the songs. Once those are remedied, I'll finish the upload.

Good news to all, there are exactly 25 songs. No eliminations this round!

That's really random. Has it ever been exact before?
