Re: You can see quite clearly from up here (Black Mountain Reviews)

I will say that you gotta figure out a place or time where you can sing louder. It's very Songfight to sound like you're trying not to disturb mom in the next room. Aside from making me laugh, you have a good point here. When I was recording this, I was torn between trying to make it sound sad and ...

Black Mountain

Black Mountain by Lichen Throat Hillsides glimmer in the dark of the night From the fires of the moonshine stills. I spent all day breathing anthracite At the back of a six-inch drill. I went underground while the dawn was just A wish in the eastern sky. I’m covered from head to boots with dust, An...

Re: An unearthly place (Black Mountain prefight)

I somehow permanently deleted almost all of my audio files from the last year this morning, so all I had to work with was a demo mp3 version of the instrumental portion of this week's entry. This situation didn't do the mix any favors.

Re: You Learned To Like It When (You Stopped Fighting Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene—I’m digging the guitar tone, and I like the left/right separation in the mix. I can’t quite figure out what the lyrics are about. Good song overall. Bridger—Well crafted, except that the transition from the intro to the first verse is a little jarring. The synthy stuff works we...

Re: You made up (You Stopped Fighting prefight)

I'm in, late again. I tried a new compositional process, which turned out to take a lot longer and led to weird problems that will shortly become apparent to you all.

You Stopped Fighting by Lichen Throat Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. You already have one foot out the door. On this cool October night, We should be getting ready for a fight. But you stopped fighting. Just shrug and close your eyes, And nothing rectifies All I’ve done to make you so sad...

Re: Can you see through the spam for the (X-Ray Specs Reviews)

Lots of great choruses this week. 2 guitars and a bass live—The Superman stuff was funny. The emphasis seems to be more on the spoken-word elements than on the music, so it’s hard to comment effectively on the music. Jonathan Mann—The songwriting here is excellent. The chords on the “Take out the ga...

X-Ray Specs

X-Ray Specs by Lichen Throat They’re piling up pallets and tires For the bonfires, Marching through town in dark suits And orange sashes, Giving no thought to who must Clean up the ashes. Don’t have X-ray specs to see which bloody side you’re on Or to see the rot inside your heart. Call your local ...

Re: You won't appreciate a kind review (Until It Happens To You reviews)

Lots of great songs this week. Berkeley Social Scene—Good lyrics, if a bit on the overt side. Very solid overall. I like the bass line. In general, all the instruments mesh well together. dark side of the son—I like the tone and delivery on the vocal performance, as well as the rhythm guitar. Fracta...

Re: Until it Happens to You

Until It Happens to You by Lichen Throat Anna went to Moscow, Danced at a fancy ball. On her way home, at a snowy train station Vronsky spoke the words that gave her palpitations. She said, “No,” at first, But from then she was cursed. You never know what you’ll do Until it happens to you. Levin wa...

Re: (Don't be a) Lazy Boy (or girl and do your) Reviews

Berkeley Social Scene—Okay, that organ bridge was awesome. I like the lyrics. Good mix, particularly with the guitars. I wish the chorus was catchier. James Owens—The lyrics made me laugh. This is not my favorite genre, but you do it well. Nice vocal performance. Lichen Throat (me)—I was pretty happ...

Re: Don't Have a Cow, Pig, Goat or... (Our Forfeited Friends Reviews)

Really nice guitar work on the bridge. dark side of the son—The reminds me of The Bats, particularly at the beginning. (That’s a compliment.) You’ve somehow managed to make a so...

Re: Take A Deep Breath And Smell Those (Foxglove reviews)

ARSEnal —I’m not sure how seriously this was intended to be taken. I kind of like the weird ending. The lyrics are amusing. The vocal is hard to make out on some (but not all) of my speakers/headphones. Berkeley Social Scene —I keep changing my mind about this one. I like the chorus. Some of the lo...

Chthonic Doom—I inadvertently listened to this at 1.5x speed the first time through, and it sounded awful. It’s much better at its proper speed, however. Nice guitar work. I’d like more of an explosion of sound after the “burn, burn, burn” part, but there are parts of this that I quite enjoy, even t...
