this was an excellent fight!
bax: haha. i had to restart the song so i could hear the opening
'come on' again. it feels very authentic. great chorus. "party
until you bleed" is a great line. the vocals have some great
moments, but the more talky ones are not as compelling. overall,
bewells: this is beautiful, but a little too slow. it's pulling me
into a pit. under other circumstances, that would be fine. This is
a wonderful performance and has a kind of tindersticks quality to
brainpipe: this singer sounds like a complete studmuffin. nice beeps.
corn on the cob: these vocals are great, and the arrangement is
wonderful. that is an incredible solo, and the part leading up to
that is awesome too. damn!
cow exchange: i love these sounds. that gritty keyboard down low in
the mix, and that harp thing. its all so bright and vibrant. i
don't know what you're talking about, but that's ok. yeah wow.
dankins: this is pretty neat, but i submit that this has nothing to
do with the title. it was probably not even done for songfight
originally. what's neptunian kit? welcome to the FAQ. I vote you
most likely to friend-flood the win.
dr. water: i love your voice. it reminds me of a country diamanda
galas. the mix is weird, but interesting.
en passant: there's something pretty good in there somewhere, but
sorting out all the things going on is really annoying me.
excuse the production: i like the acoustic sonic youth moments.
yeah this is surprisingly great for being so minimal. it's catchy.
i'm only halfway through the song though, so that's not an official
verdict. ok, i never got tired of listening to it, so it must be
his name is dan: weird intro! what are you making your beats with
nowadays? i love the falsetto stuff. this is pretty good dan,
dan. and i like dan. what a sensitive lyric: "everything is alive
in your eyes". definitely a step up from wiping old mens' butts.
hostess: your vocals are like a subtle vacuum cleaner, sucking tears
from my eyeholes. the minimal percussion is great too. and yes nice
playing, but those vocals. man. great.
Jim of Seattle: this is an internet craze waiting to happen.
beautifully played and still ridiculous. Kudos! This belongs in
the dinner-party scene in a Tron-like movie about guys wandering
around inside Windows. In the final scene of the movie, everyone
will die, but will have no clue how it happened. Some other music
will play then.
Jim Tyrrell: This is really great. You have a knack, my friend.
The kick drum sounds weird though. We should totally manilowfight.
something about this song (probably the high-quality songwriting
craft displayed) reminded me of that.
Johnny iBook: I have a serious weakness for your vocals. The
production on this is great too. i like synthy-jbb a lot. Your
lyrics are always a treat. Great.
klownhole: love the wailing. this is very
faith-no-more/melvinsy. not too keen on the talking parts, but
that's no dealbreaker. love the guitars. love the sludgy
directionlessness of it all. i don't like the fact that the outro
noise is all in my left ear.
luke henley: no time to come up with a feeling here. it's a bit
merisan: you guys are an inspired pair. wonderful vocals. great
guitars, though the rhythm throws me off in a few places. it's not
a playing problem, just a disconnect with my expectations. that
goes away later in the song, so you can probably safely ignore that
comment. still very good. niiice solo.
phunt: i'm sure this is very nice, but i'm anxious to finish these
reviews and I don't have 12 minutes to give you right now. Perhaps
pigpen: this music sucks, but your voice is pretty good and you
definitely have some flow capabilities.
puce: that synth bass is the highlight of this song. what is it??
and yeah the sample is clever and awesome. thank you for including
your high vocals on this. awesome. what a surprise. it is weird
that the first half of the word 'welcome' sounds like you're trying
to be angry, and then it goes normal. 2:00 onward is particularly
awesome. i want that sample louder!
posyden: i like the music a lot. but this recording is weird. "the
shit that i spit" is a funny line. i might have to vote you
raised by wolves: this has a great mood to it. it is definitely
very elfman-y. that modulated voice reminds me of Sir Nose from
parliament's "motor booty affair", which is probably not what you're
going for. pretty cool regardless.
ross durand: this is very cutesy, obviously. i'm sure my kids would
sausage boy: you come up with the weirdest yet mindswallowing
grooves. i like the weird synth, and the warbly effects, especially
on the whistling,are cool.
steve durand: sweet horns, again. everything else is fine, but not
really notable. but yeah the horns make it good. the structure is
taco conspiracy: those drums are very annoying. it sounds like
you're stretching them too far. yeah this is not good.
tiny paws: i am interested in this glitterstomp craze of which you
speak. the lyrics do mostly make sense to me, in case you were
still concerned about their transcontinental relevance. anyway,
this is a great groove. all the various parts are really good and
they fit together well. i especially like the "ahooo" and that
crazy synth. this is super. though it sounds more like J$ than
wreckdom: i like that bass sound. this is good weird.
