Re: Give us some (Love In The Time Of Reviews)

Loving the podcast. I really wish I'd gotten a song into this fight, I love hearing from Alice and Brian!

Pleased that the bird aliens are not forgotten.

Re: Forget Ezra, It's (Better Than Everything prefight)

I got nothing for this one again, but I'm gonna get my gift of music song recorded this weekend and use that momentum to launch HARD into whatever the next fight is. If I say it here then it'll definitely happen. Maybe.

Re: Give us some (Love In The Time Of Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene : mmm, synthbass and drum machines. The general sound of this one is gorgeous, the little lead guitar melody at the end of the chorus especially. The song doesn't hugely capture my attention though, the melody just feels a bit lifeless and uninteresting and the lyrics are just...

Re: My Life

I'm not sure if I'm having trouble focusing due to crisis, or if I'm just as terrible at working from home as I always suspected I would be. Probably a bit of both. My partner has FINALLY been allowed to work from home from tomorrow so hopefully that will help, she's been so stressed about having to...

Cherry Audio have made their VST modular synth free:

Just having a play with it now, some nice sounds and there looks to be enough there to get fully lost in!

Re: Circle of Titles / Gift of Music ?

Circle of Titles: Every participant submits a title, they get shuffled around to other partipants so that you end up with a song for each title (actually I think people generally submit two so that their random partner gets a choice?) Gift of Music: Every participant picks a few (four?) songs that t...

Re: Songfighter Videos on YouTube

Thanks all! Now that I'm familiar with the process (Windows Movie Maker, woo!) I'll hopefully do some more of these in the future. I treated myself to this guitar last year after Nur Ein, my first new one in a decade or so!

Re: Songfighter Videos on YouTube

I was going to play my first gig in about six years today, but: Pandemic. Thought I'd record some of the songs I was planning to play, before I forget them again. Three of them were Song Fight / Nur Ein, here's me playing "Your Discarded Cigarette" and probably looking mildly uncomfortable on camera...

Re: Fixing typos in the archive data

I know it's not a songfight-hosted page, but the dates are wrong on the review-o-matic for some of the recent fights as well. But I don't think they were wrong until Tricked For The Last Time was posted. This probably doesn't help!

First reviews in a while, sorry if I'm rusty, but couldn't resist writing about this Particularly Excellent fight. With so many good songs my vote / not vote threshold is slightly arbitrary so I won't bore you with which ones made the cut! Balance Lost : I already commented on this one over at FAWM,...

Re: SpinTunes 16 Round 2 'Count Me In' reviews

If only the judges had felt the same way! Your song was in my top 3 (with Faster Jackelope and Jerkatorium). I was surprised to see it placed so low. My top three also! Hopefully some consolation that your song was a fan favourite, really not sure how that one didn't get you through to round 3! My ...
