Re: Red Warrior Needs Reviews Badly (Blue Woman Yes reviews)

Wow, with the exception of mine, everyone’s songs sound so professional this week. This is a really strong fight; probably the highest percentage of songs I’ve ever voted for. Berkeley Social Scene—The vocal sounds good, as do the guitars. I like the contrast between the verses and the chorus. Solid...

Re: Now with more colors and genders! (Blue Woman Yes prefight)

I'm in! I had to record in a hotel room using the microphone built into my IEMs, but I made it.

Re: Blue Woman Yes

Blue Woman Yes by Lichen Throat Hey there Christine, How could they be so mean When you were just fifteen? Blue woman, yes. I cannot know your sorrow, As sharp as a saguaro, Not now, and not tomorrow. Blue woman, yes. Time goes by so fast. The decades have elapsed, But you transcend your past. Blue...

Re: Automatic songs, automatic reviews (Yes, You're A Robot reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene—I think I’d like a higher density of percussion notes; it might make the song seem faster without actually increasing the tempo. In general, though, this is a solid, enjoyable song. It’s also among the better BSS vocal performances, in my opinion. glennny—This reminds me of Pin...

Re: Where's The Shredder for the (Tearing Down History Reviews)

Lichen Throat - This is really quite compelling. Your vocal is working with the music for me this time. I've been playing around with this on my guitar today because I wanted to get a better handle on its construction. I think it'd be neat if the final time through the chorus it ended on an A major...

Re: Where's The Shredder for the (Tearing Down History Reviews)

Of course the Cinnabon reference was from last fight's podcast! I put that in just for you guys; the hard part was making it fit into the song in a way that made sense. I enjoyed this week's podcast quite a bit and found most of the comments insightful, both for my song and all the other songs. Spec...

Re: Where's The Shredder for the (Tearing Down History Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene—I like the piano in the chorus. In the mix, the vocal sounds almost like it’s separate from the rest of the song, especially at the beginning. I’m not grooving on the 70s guitar sound, but the solo is really sweet. Glennny—The gradual buildup throughout each verse is very well ...

Tearing History Down

Tearing History Down by Lichen Throat Thank you, Mr. Gorbachev, For tearing down this wall. No more concertina wire And bright graffiti scrawl. No need for a crowbar, No more eastern blocks.

Re: I Hope You Get A"round" to your (Square States Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene—The dreamy tone of both the instruments and vocals sets a good atmosphere. The chorus doesn’t quite follow through on the buildup in each verse, but this is fun overall. (And houses in Denver are definitely not cheap.) Duckman—I’d like to hear the higher pitched guitar playing ...

Square States by Sparetooth We drove out of Laramie With the rodeo cashbox. Bought a crowbar in Sinclair To break off the lock. Stuffed fourteen grand in Donna’s purse At our motel in Rock Springs.

Re: Red Warrior Needs Food Badly (The Strong Button Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene-This is among my favorite BSS tunes. Good melodies, interesting arrangement, pleasant vocal: what's not to like? Lichen Throat-I had to rush to finish this before my vacation. Consequently there are more rough spots than usual, and I would have liked more time to work on the ve...

The Strong Button by Lichen Throat One last day, until you leave here. I begged you then, “Don’t volunteer.” Gone, gone away, to the colony. Don’t cry when I’m left in agony. Drifting through the stars, Will you think of me? When you set your foot on Mars, Where will I be? I still wear The sweater ...
