Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Four "June Moon"

@arby I really like that wallpaper!

Thanks for all the additional liner notes/links/thoughts. Super interesting to know more of the backstory and intentions as far as your lyrics.

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Four "June Moon"

Reviews!!! This was a really hard round to rank, a lot of very strong songs and I kept changing my mind on rankings as I went through these... I do think a lot of the rankings this round came down more to judges' personal musical preferences rather than any major issues with the songs/performances/w...

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Five "Novel"

I would find that totally acceptable (but again, would love an explanation in your liner notes). I’ll let the other judges weigh in if they feel differently.

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Three "Can't Let It Go"

I'm sorry again that I have been terrible at reviewing so far--it's been unexpectedly really busy for me since Nur Ein started, but I had a big work thing wrap up last week, so I'm hoping I can do a little better with giving feedback now. I'm determined to actually finish this round of reviews and p...

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Five "Novel"

Hey gizo! No, the intent with the phrasing was to exclude pre-existing audio libraries or sample-based virtual instruments/VSTs. Please take careful note of the "non-musical" recording part of this--the intent is not to have you chop out the hook from a Motown classic and build a song around it, but...

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Zero "Friday the 13th"

Reviewssssss Sorry I've been so slow getting these done, it's been busy! Adam Adamant - I like the general sound of the instrumentation here, particularly your guitar, and including that kind of messy falling-apart ending, and your vocal delivery kind of reminds me of David Bowie. Catchy chorus, but...

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round One "Deified"

However, I will be looking for a complete phrase. I don’t think I’m going to care if it covers a whole bar or not, or if it lines up exactly to start on a particular beat, but regardless, Mike has expressed his preference and I guess you all probably will want to please as many judges as possible.

the engine of more - miscellaneous owl album

It’s Bandcamp Friday! I wrote ten new songs in February for FAWM (two were also Songfight songs!) and you can find them on this new album:

Re: Or you could lift me up (Strike Me Down reviews)

I'm doing February Album Writing Month this month, so have no time for this really, but I feel like I'm behind on review karma on Songfight as I think I never finished reviews for the last couple of fights I entered, so I wanted to write SOMETHING. I only have ultra-short first-impression reviews he...
