Re: Aren't we all just (Screaming Into The Void prefight)

I'm in with what strikes me as a mediocre song. I was trying to work on vocal melody, but I don't see much improvement so far. I did, however, fulfill the Spalted Rhyme Challenge.

Re: Screaming Into The Void

Screaming into the Void by Lichen Throat Drills and sanders have long assaulted Wood with figured grain or spalted. Thrumming bandsaws rattle and growl; Whirling saws make banshee howls. Screaming into the void, My tabletop was destroyed. Yelling next to spinning blades, Can’t be heard above the la...

Re: And now you see (How It Comes Apart reviews)

Abandoned Banana—I quite liked the opening chord sequence, and I like the chord progression in the chorus. I’m less a fan of the scratchy-sounding component of the rhythm section. This song improved for me on subsequent listens. add—This is well-made and well-performed, but I wish it sounded livelie...

Re: Don't wink at me (Eyes In The Dark reviews)

add—Nice mix; everything sounds very sharp and clear. This reminds me a bit of a band called Bishop Allen; I think the resemblance is a combination of your vocal, the xylophone-like instrument, and the chorus melody. The verses sometimes feel a little slow, but I like how the chorus bursts out so en...

Re: How It Comes Apart

How It Comes Apart by Lichen Throat My daddy went to jail For brandishing a cake knife. Then my mummy died, And he married a new wife. We live in a castle With a bridge and moat. My life is a hassle Because we’re always broke. My dad is a writer who can’t write. My sister is lacing her girdle tight...

Re: Don't wink at me (Eyes In The Dark reviews)

Lichen Throat : Are you abusing auto tune in the bridge? Is it on your voice the rest of the time as well? I don't think I'm abusing autotune. At least, I hope not. It's on a fairly modest setting that's the same throughout the song. I made a conscious decision to sing the lower portions at the end...

Re: Hold your breath for (The Smoke Is Rolling In reviews)

add—Very smooth. Nice mix, too. There may be a bit of a mismatch between the sound of the music and the lyrics; it sounds too lighthearted to be a heartfelt song, but the lyrics are too serious for a lighthearted song. Maybe the problem is simply my inability to take this kind of old-fashioned count...

Re: Eyes in the Dark

Eyes in the Dark by Lichen Throat Camelot on late-night TV, With a loaf of bread and butter. Around the street light I can see Moths swirl and flutter. My eyes in the dark See the clean, pure night, The sky full of sparks, And the city lights. A frisbee duel at 1:00 a.m. By Monte Vista Hall. Grab m...

Should we make a foolhardy attempt at an EVH tribute cover fight?! Maybe if we each tackle 1-2 measures and spend a month listening at 1/10th speed we could do a collective cover of Eruption? :lol:
I would be willing to do that or a more conventional coverfight. Either one.

add—I thought the synthy instrument was a little distracting. The song has a pleasant melody, and I like the vocal performances and arrangements. The mix feels clear and open, though I wish there was more low end on the drums. Balls To Monte—I like the churny guitar and the earnest vocal. The vocal ...

2017 My last "official" songfight entry (shocking I know). Though I have written a song for every title since then before deciding I didn't like it much.
I am strangely impressed by this.

Re: Your music creation history

2015: In a motel room in Columbus, Ohio, I had a conversation with two musician friends about music theory.

Lichen Throat - You’ve got into this MIDI-fied New Wave vibe lately and I’m loving it. You’re also getting better at getting melodies worked out, you’re getting better at creating songs that flow and mix well and have accessible structure for the most part.

Re: Get the duct tape (Broken Heart Syndrome reviews)

Balls to Monte—Nice forlorn rock vibe on this. Some 60s feel mixed with more contemporary atmosphere. I wish there was a little more going on, but I like what’s here. Brown Word and the Big Whine—I like the guitar playing and tone on this. Cohesive in sound and lyrical content. Could maybe use more ...

Re: Song Fight! Live(Stream) - September 2020

Did we ever get live Lichen Throat? I played a cover of one of Lichen Throat's songs, but otherwise not yet. Wow, I'm honored, and I can't tell you how much I loved this. Your version is an improvement in many ways, not least of which that you can pronounce "Natalie" so it doesn't sound like "Nelly."
