The People's Republic

The People's Republic by Lichen Throat Three months gone, And it feels so wrong Not to have you by my side. I get perplexed About why your texts Leave me so unsatisfied. You write about Your adventures out In the smoggy, crowded streets, But I can’t dismiss That you’re quite remiss Of asking about ...

As was alluded to earlier in the thread. You have to vote for a minimum of two. So... whether you like it or not... if you vote... we both get it.

:twisted:


At least I'll finally get a win on the board.

Re: And Florida, and the islands, and... (Pray For Texas reviews)

Well, listening to the songs for the review didn’t take long… Dimetrodon—I composed the first draft of this song and wrote the lyrics,mainly with the intent of squeezing in as many references to Texas-themed songs as I could, from Americana standards to obscure They Might Be Giants songlets. All the...

Re: Pray For Texas

Pray for Texas by Dimetrodon I’m rarely down in Texas, So please don’t look me up. I eat my steak without a sauce Of blandly spiced ketchup. Don’t have to own a giant truck; I drive a little car. Don’t need to smell a yellow rose; Or wear a single star. But still, Pray for Texas, ‘Cause they need yo...

Re: Put Lipstick On A Pig and (Kiss It All Goodbye Reviews)

Dark side of son: I like the guitar tone and the sinister vibe. You've got some good melodies in there, too. The acoustic guitar is too quiet and doesn't seem to match the rest of the song. Deadnettlez: Kind of impressive, but not my thing. Lichen Throat: I was so focused on having a danceable beat ...

Re: Kiss It All Goodbye

Kiss It All Goodbye by Lichen Throat I’m the fattest of fat cats, Got money to burn. A bona fide plutocrat; Eight figures I earn. I don’t eat anywhere Without five stars on Yelp. Got a house that will become A museum about itself. But if I miss my margin call, Then you can kiss it all Goodbye. I put...

Re: Dredging Up Some (From The Depths Reviews)

When I read vowlvom’s review, I was struck by how he seemed to have already expressed my exact opinions on all of this fight’s entries better than I could have done myself; we must have similar tastes. But here are a few supplemental thoughts: Berkeley Social Scene—I didn’t pay attention to the lyri...

Re: Dredging Up Some (From The Depths Reviews)

Lichen Throat - Ok, I could be totally off here, but I’m pretty sure you're using midi notes within your DAW (GarageBand, logic pro, Ableton, etc.). Nothing wrong with that, I use in-house synths for 95% percent of my sounds. Problem is, its painfully obvious its fake (now if this was your goal, yo...

From the Depths

From the Depths by Lichen Throat Half a mile down and three miles back, Five tiny lights in a world of black. Glad I’m not down here all alone, Nothing but water dripping on limestone. Cavern after cavern to explore; No one’s ever been this deep before. One more climb and we’ll call it a day. Grabb...

Bone Saw

Bone Saw by Lichen Throat I was born in old Kiev, Came here on a boat. Moved in with my uncle Lev, Owned nothing but my coat. Now I work in the packing plant Got used to the smell. Wash the blood out of my pants In the tenement where I dwell. I run the bone saw; I make twelve bucks a day. The stray...

Re: No sunlight in sight (Black Days reviews)

Balance Lost —I didn’t like this the first time I heard it, but since then it’s become more enjoyable with every listen. Lots of good lyrical lines. Good rhythm, too. A couple of the lines (“but nothing got fixed” and “how the hell did they reach that conclusion”) seem to break the lyrical meter; w...

Re: Black Days

Black Days by Lichen Throat They’re selling amulets down at the market. People are boarding up windows and doors. They say the plague has come back to London; Those are the words that no one can ignore. Heard there’s an outbreak out in the West End, Heard that it started on Drury Lane. All of my nei...

Re: Listen Through The Static For Your (Cassini Reviews)

2 guitars and a bass live—This is pretty unfocused and never seems to really get going. Each individual component sounds good, particularly the bass, but I don’t think it comes together into a cohesive, purposeful song. Huygens—There are a lot of little things to pick at here: the mix is too loud, s...

Re: Cassini

Cassini by Lichen Throat [Alien 1] What is this metal device? Where is it from? Why is it here? [Alien 2] Perhaps it’s sent to spy on us. Launched in ‘97, I’ve been out here for twenty years. The sun’s so distant. I’ve gotten so lonely; So dark and cold, never going home. Call me Cassini, But I can’...
