Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Gear Info

My keyboard has various glockenspiel-like sounds but I don't have a real one.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Musicians Exchange

I could pitch in on a couple of sets if anybody wants to try to throw something together. I will even learn your songs in advance, make and bring my own charts, etc. :) I am primarily a guitar player, secondarily a bass player, and less so a drummer, keyboard player, and backup vocalist.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Curds & Chords (Madison WI US 8/2-8/3)

OK, any other preferences on who plays when?

Also, Micah, you mentioned earlier you might not be able to make it both nights and/or later in the evening. How is that situation looking?

Also also: there was some mention of people maybe needing practice space facilities. Who needs what, and when?

Yes-- I started working on a poster yesterday, but haven't gotten too far yet. If anyone else wants to do it, let me know, otherwise I'll continue later... p.s. In other important Madison-related music news, I was looking up Metallica's "Of Wolf and Man" today for reasons and found out that it is th...

Oooooh I didn't even realize this was coming up so soon! I've been out of town a lot over the last few weeks. I'll try to get my butt in gear with promoting as soon as I can.

How does the live fight title work? Do we agree on it and tell you? Or just post it here? When?

If anyone is still looking for housing, apparently on the 24th you'll have a chance to book the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile on AirBnB.

Re: Drifting along with the tumblin' (Tumbleweed Reviews)

miscellaneous owl—This gave me a chill the first time I listened to it, in the first verse; I don’t think I’ve ever experienced that on my initial listen to any song before. I think the whispering at the start was very effective in drawing in the listener and creating anticipation. I love the vocal...

Re: Drifting along with the tumblin' (Tumbleweed Reviews)

miscellaneous owl The vocal is nice, but it feels a bit more delicate than the arrangement behind her. Maybe put some reverb or delay on the vocal to make it sound more epic? I like it when the full harmony comes in. DEFINITELY spend more time writing a guitar solo please, the song deserves it. I d...

Re: Finishing "No Memory" by Merisan

Nice! It sounds great. Congrats on being done with it. Also, sorry to have given more feedback than you wanted! This was definitely Picky Mode since you asked for input and I was comparing the two versions listening for the changes, definitely would not have bothered mentioning most of these things ...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Curds & Chords (Madison WI US 8/2-8/3)

Yeah I was going off "Historically everybody has generally wanted to play for as long as possible."--> which to me, might mean they want to play for 2 hours :) The 30-45 mins I mentioned is usually on a 3 or 4-band bill, too. So playing for less time is totally fine. I just don't want to say "hey re...

I have not yet listened to either album, but Saturday night I went to a joint album release show for these two bands: Spirits Having Fun (Deerhoof-esque angular pop) and Hex House , some good friends of mine who just released their debut album (math and post-rock tinged post-hardcore). The bands wer...

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

If the semi-related things are butter and syrup, that sounds pretty OK. Or muppet extravaganzas.
