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...

Re: Flame On! (Flamethrower Reviews)

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...

Foxglove

Foxglove by Unsharp Mask I used to read my local paper every night. But then I got mad and canceled my subscription ‘cause of what they write. I don’t trust the liberal media; no, I don’t trust them at all. Don’t touch nothing without my Fox glove, Fox glove, Fox glove. Don’t believe anything you d...

Flamethrower

Flamethrower by Lichen Throat Flying overhead, Fill the sky with dread. People feel their lives just Hanging by a thread. Pointing at the sky, They’re all gonna die. Little children scream and The grown men cry. I’m a flamethrower. Now I’m flying lower. I’m a flamethrower. Run, run away. You’d best...

Bishop Allen. Their EP-a-month-for-a-year project was reminiscent of Song Fight.

Re: But in all seriousness... (Zero Gravity reviews)

Lots of good songs this week. Berkeley Social Scene—I thought this was one of your better songs. I love the guitar tone and the transition from verse to chorus. I actually like the synth strings. Making the chorus a little more exuberant would be the cherry on top, but overall it’s a very good song....

Re: Tom Petty Coverfight

I sent mine in. This exercise gave me even more respect for the genius of Tom Petty. It would never in my life occur to me to use this chord:

Re: It Ain't Plato's (The People's Republic Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene—I’m not sure the vocal needs the deliberate harshness, but otherwise, this is quite good. Clever lyrics, all the instruments sound good, lots of variety, nice mix: good work! Vote. Heuristics Inc.—This is a cool idea, and I like the “vocal”. More variety would be welcome, thoug...

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.

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

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.

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 ...

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...
