Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 5 - Nur Ein XII round 4

Heya Ray, So I took your Elevator Man mp3 and I ran it through Ozone. I only applied the 'Maximizer' to it, which essentially limits the dynamics of a song and cranks up the gain, making it louder. I used IRC IV mode, and set the threshold at -7.0dB. When you play with Ozone next, try using just the...

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

I often listen to repetitive minimalist music while working, I find it soothing and easy to concentrate. Some of it is hauntingly beautiful too.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Three

Man, such a hard challenge, two , guests vocalists! Nobody would fault you for just not submitting a song this time around, it'd be totally understandable. It's Saturday night here in the US, and you should be out drinking and not working on your song. Seriously, you can work on it tomorrow, go have...

Re: NUR EIN! Tired of Talking lyrics

Tired of Talking by Jerkatorium When you're tired of talking, you sit on the couch and you stare at the walls, and you let yourself slouch and you think about her, and the things that she said 'bout your awful B.O. and your misshapen head, and how you were rude when you said you were done with the h...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round One

I like the drum sound a lot. What software has those drums? Normally our drummer is Kyle, who Ryan likes a lot, because he plays straightforward rock beats, keeps his mouth shut, and mostly does what he's told. This time we thought we'd audition Nikki, who according to her profile plays "bounc...

Embarrassingly enough, mine is Heartbeat Break since it was all over the radio in 1987 during a particularly magical time in my life. My wife will also say Pretty in Pink.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round One

73 Keep it Beautiful - This song puts me in my happy place. The counter melody reminds me of Elliott Smith. Balance Lost - I like the spoken word bits, interesting lyrics, spoken convincingly. Not sure the song itself really hangs together though, it seems like the different elements don't really je...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round One

Just a reminder that the After You listening party is happening right now on YouTube. Of course the actual songs don't start for another 30 minutes, but the pre-show is actually pretty great, where Tommy spins a bunch of his favorite SF and Nur Ein songs. Good stuff.

Heh, I felt exactly the same way Lunkhead, if you want a co-host, let me know.

Cool, thanks for looking into it. In the meantime, would it be possible to temporarily drop the mp3 files into a public directory so we can listen to the songs? Thanks!

Currently: listening to CDs, getting excited for Sebadoh and Tobin Spout tonight and thinking, "well, their recordings are even scrappier!" In as of this morning. Fuck ya! I listened to a lot of Sebadoh during my 90s lo-fi period, and Tobin Sprout is one of my favorite songwriters ever. I...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

Your melody on "Cross my heart and hope to die, / I had my fingers crossed each time" is straight from the Beatles' "All My Loving." Heh, yup. I was terrified that Ryan would realize that and at the last minute and we'd be forced to change it, but luckily he didn't. I'm calling ...

Re: Why, hello to you!

Howdy Wendy, welcome to SongFight!

Historically the phrase applied to new folks here is "please be awesome", but having heard some of your stuff you already seem awesome, so please cary on. Hope you have fun in Nur Ein and stick around for some of the bi-weekly fights here.
