Re: Porcupine

Porcupine by Lichen Throat I’m a porcupine. I’m a porcupine. Don’t drink no wine. I’m a porcupine. Watch out for my quills. Watch out for my quills. I don’t wish you ill, But watch out for my quills. See me in the forest, And see me on the streets. I see you stepping backwards Every time we meet. I...

Balance Lost—I love the opening. The echo/reverb/delay/whatever-it-is on the vocal fits very well with the song. This is a good song—probably my favorite of yours that I’ve heard. Vote. Dimetrodon (me)—Well, apparently I don’t really know how to record live instruments. This is David singing and pla...

NUR EIN XIV - Round 6 - Survival

Survival by Lichen Throat shadow entry Hello Miss Ada Clare, We’ve never met before. You’re sweet as an eclair And lovely to the core. Hey, will you marry me? Though we are orphans, both, I’ll pledge my love to thee And take the marriage oath. Let our lives be intertwined; Troubled days are far beh...

Dimetrodon I can't really make out the vocals because they're so far back in the mix. The guitars are also really messy. Are the lyrics about saying that people don't need to be visibly queer? Or is it an indictment against folks who want to be an individual, just like everyone else? Either way I'm...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Five "Where The Streets Have No Name"

Agony Sauce—The intro immediately grabs my attention. I’m not sure the backing vocals add a lot, but the lead vocal is good. I like the vocal melody. Overall this is a good song—perhaps my favorite of your entries in this Nur Ein. Berkeley Social Scene—The guitars sound good throughout the song; I r...

Oh but where in Iceland though? And did you eat hákarl?! We stayed part of the time in Reykjavik and part in Akureyri, with lots of day trips into the countryside. I did not eat hákarl or notice it being available anywhere. I was, however, surprised (and a little shocked) to see minke whale on the ...

Lichen Throat- Your vocals are less pitchy than usual, but there’s still a bit to go. This reminds me of
https://youtu.be/hQv6TNS9RG8. Similar groove. Fun song.
I misread the title of the song that you linked to as "I Eat Cannabis." I can see the resemblance to my song; thanks for the link!

Lichen Throat: The samples are a bit hard to understand, but I also just really like the fact that you're sampling The Sugarcubes in a song about Bleak House. (Where did you go on vacation?)
I went to Iceland, which was part of the reason for the Sugarcubes sample.

Re: Ohne Ruhm

I missed round 3 while I was on vacation, so I decided to submit one song that includes both the round 3 and round 4 challenges. The vocal samples are from The Sugarcubes' "Delicious Demon."

P.S. Yes, it's another Bleak House song.
