Re: Another black eye (I Had It Coming reviews)

Were I the Olympic Committee, I would give the gold to V. Vorton, with the silver going to S. Toad. I'd grant J. DeSantis the bronze, though if you were The Cars that synth woulda popped back in at 1:25ish. Honorable mentions to Ken overall and Lichen Throat for one of the best background musics I'v...

Re: It hurt anyway (I Had it Coming prefight)

Kind of a shameful rush job, but I'm in ripping off Front 242 using nothing but 00-04 fight titles as lyrics. The real question is "which era"? All are acceptable, but I don't think 5:22:9:12 Off has left my regular disc rotation for more than a few months at a time since I swiped my dad's copy lik...

If I get a chance I'm doing something with ONLY titles from 00-04.

Re: Stop saying (I Am Very Busy reviews)

Cthonic Black: I think something about the sound of the cymbals is bothering me in this track; whenever one hits it feels like the whole song has gone sort-of wavy (not sure that will make any sense). Kids, let Neutron Flow's words be a lesson to you: don't over-compress your master bus. Granted, i...

Re: Talk trash and (Take It Outside reviews)

S. Toad. Mr. Toad. The production is super interesting and I'm curious as to what you're sampling here. These lyrics would be okay if it was someone else's guitar-over-fruityloops type track, but coming from someone with your lyrical prowess it seems a liiitle like you kinda dashed it out. No sampl...

Re: Talk trash and (Take It Outside reviews)

Wow, lots of people channeling psychedelia in some fashion this week. Including us, I guess. Good work, everybody! Brown Word, et. al. I would love to hear a mix of this without the synths. I think the trem guitars work real well with the bass tone here, but I'd bring the drums way forward. Solid me...

Re: You can't restart if you don't (Shutdown reviews.)

Cocteau Twins used a Yamaha RX? Weird, I always thought they used Linndrum, but maybe I'm getting them mixed in my mind with someone else. No dude, you just have excellent ears. The early EPs were totes Linn. Then I think they went 707... Blue Bell Knoll would be the classic RX record. That's about...

Re: But wear a mask (Take It Outside prefight)

Jealous. I wanted to have at least eight tracks of vocals but I think we only got six. The trick is to double track everything! If only you knew... The real trick is to get a singer who doesn't feel like they're dying while trying to get at least a single decent take... ;) Dude. You always sound st...

Chthonic Chthock : Feels very Flight of the Conchords . I want heavy gated snare. Ha! See, the heavy gated snare was my first thought as well! But... it just didn't sound right. So we went for something else from the 80s. Instead I opted for a (slightly water damaged) Yamaha RX drum machine from 19...

Pretty happy with my mix right now. Drums a little louder, and all 10 tracks of vocals sounding good.

I'm sorry I don't word well. These are more reactions than reviews. Thank you all for submitting! Brown Word + Big Whine. I dig the 80s/90s vibe. I wish I could rock like this. Alas, I cannot. G.

What a time to be alive. Truly. Like, we learned in school about the cultural significance of radio when it was introduced. But I don't think I really got it until I was old enough to look back on the explosion of the internet and recall that eye-opening sense of wonderment that you alluded to. "A ...

Re: You're a winner (Kissing Contest prefight)

I AM OFFENDED BY THIS TITLE. "Kissing Contest" is the name of the band that crafted the greatest SongFight! entry of all time. Their name is sacred, and should not be used wontonly. Hear my tale: When I was an undergrad in the time before time, all sorts of regular people started getting on the int...

Re: Is it all in my head? (My Favorite Monster Reviews)

My favorite monster was Vom Vorton . I was humming it to myself at work today -- well done! My second-favorite monsters were Third Cat (with their swankadelic wonderland) and Heine (who attempted something reasonably ambitious and pulled it off). I'm always jealous of the superb musicianship that ap...

Re: He lives in my basement (My Favorite Monster prefight)

I'd like to thank Ujn for helping me relive my teenage infatuation with Screeching Weasel.

I'd also like to thank Owl for letting me know that Pete Shelley died... but... only sort of. Homosapien is one of my all-time favorite records. Everyone should go listen to it.

That being said, if the contest were simply to appeal to me, I'd give James Owens the first place medal. That was j...
