Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

Sorry it's even longer than before, but we finally have the New Ugly review for round 2 here: http://podcast.songlander.com/?name=2019-05-18_newuglynurein14-2.mp3. I'm noticing a lot of missing audio, where you guys drop out and its just the quiet track playing and then you come back 30s later, los...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

Niveous, I am in awe of your reviews. The drama! The suspense! As a former voracious reader of chooser your own adventures, I really enjoyed it. Did you mean to leave out Mandibles? I only ask because I really enjoy reading the reviews and try to improve my skills by listening to the criticism. And ...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

Mandibles - I didn’t care for this, it wasn’t catchy and the lyrics were kind of lame. But the biggest pet peeve for me was the totally incorrect use of the phrase “pump the brakes”. The situation the narrator is describing should lead them to pump the GAS, not the brakes! They’re trying to go fast...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

I quit. I quit at everything. On the one hand, I'm bored at work, so I want to pour more fuel on this fire. Same. After extensive analysis, I can confirm that this song is 17/4, expressed as a compound 9+8/4. While there is extensive use of eighth notes, the main beat is with the quarter. :D

Ah, thank you for sharing these! I find this lyric/mumble rift really fascinating despite my lack of knowledge on the genre. My main inspiration was this video:

Hehe, clever!
Just one more link (mumble is around 3:27)
HA that was hilarious!

trying to emulate the sound of mumble rap without actually rapping (since they told us no bad raps lol). Thank you for sharing the inspiration behind the bridge, that's really interesting!

Another strong round! I’m glad we made it in. Hope y’all don’t mind, but I couldn’t let this challenge go by without a nod to Robert Burns. :)

I JUST listened to the Mandibles...and that’s unfortunate for them. This blew my mind because I thought I just heard a really good song on this topic, and I honestly liked everything about this more so than the previous song.
Honestly, me too. :D

And I listened to Alice Coopers first album, Pretties For You, for inspiration... Also listened to Killers. You should too!
Will do!

Ok, now I get the song. Doesn’t do it for me, but it’s really well executed!

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round One "Shock Value"

Nur ein xiv 1 A brief note: we at Mandibles had an extensive talk about how this challenge would manifest. It seemed like it could go in two directions- Dynamics meaning Volume, and Dynamics meaning color. If compression is added to the song, then the volume option is voided. Often in classical sing...

Our song is about the infamous Dr. Milgram Experiments of the ~1950’s. I’d post a link to the Wikipedia article, but you guys should hear the song first. Knowing the whole story might spoil the.... Shock Value. :)

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Zero "Message Received"

Mandibles. Cybronica’s vocals are interesting because it’s blues rock as done with a hint of opera. It’s quirky. I enjoyed it but I can see how it may not be everyone’s cup of tea. The song is a decent li’l rocker, like a Heart b-side. I dig it, though there was no need for those high notes towards...

Sorry for the long delay, but the New Ugly review of Round 0 is finally live! “The Genre wires in my head are crossed” Whelp, that pretty much encapsulates me, all the time.
