Re: Take A Deep Breath And Smell Those (Foxglove reviews)

ARSEnal - super lo-fi, but appealing in a strange sort of way even if I’d like the vocals to be a bit clearer. Berkeley Social Scene - really interesting chord progression, but I’m not hugely into the guitar sound and the vocal melody is a bit dreary. I like the shift to the higher register for the ...

Re: NaNoWriMo

I signed up for this challenge a few years ago but I've never managed to get started on anything concrete, really.

Does anyone from the SongFight community get involved with the musical version? I'm attempting a fully electronic album this month, because... well, why not?

Re: Flame On! (Flamethrower Reviews)

Flamethrower reviews The Older Brothers - I like the upbeat vibe, and the mix has a nice mix of clean and crunchy sounds. Just sounds like it could do with a bit more work on the vocal melody, especially on the chorus, or maybe a harmony line or something? The bass / guitar interplay on the solo is ...

Re: The Good Place

I just finished the first season a couple of days ago. I'm not in love with the show as a whole, but the plot twists have been superb so far (and incredibly audacious, especially for a sitcom) which will definitely keep me watching a little longer.

Re: So You're Saying You Like Me? (Darling, You're Strange Reveiws)

Berkeley Social Scene - really like the unusual rhythm and the layers of guitar fuzz, and the general sort of contemplative vibe. I’ve heard other BSS songs that sound more “immediate”, but this is a good one that I can already feel growing on me. D.A.H. - this is great fun, especially on headphones...

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

Vom Vorton - Your instrumental performance is top-notch. Are those drums live or sampled? If live, they’re really well-mic’ed; if samples, they’re really well-sequenced. Your voice is pretty darn good, though some of the high notes (e.g. on “poor sound quality”) are a little squiggly. The lyrics fe...

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

Friends of Olaf - I really like the spoken-word-and-chugging-guitars vibe. The vocals remind me of Slint, but the music has more of a punk edge. The mix feels a little odd, maybe a bit over-compressed? But not enough to spoil my enjoyment, this was cool. Micah Sommersmith - really gorgeous! Lovely p...

Re: Floating away in the (Zero Gravity prefight)

I totally missed the Nocturne bonus challenge until after I'd finished my song, but hopefully I accidentally crammed some subliminal nocturne vibes in there without realising. Under all the guitars and synths. Somewhere.

Pigfarmer Jr. - solid riffage, and it works surprisingly well with the antiquated language, but it does feel a bit rushed. A fine listen, but not one of your best. Ken’s Super Duper Band n’ Stuff - I’m torn between loving the stripped down arrangement (the chord sequence remind me a little of Pants ...

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

Pigfarmer Jr. - agreed with lichenthroat, this is a really good one. Really propulsive and melodic, and I really like the guitar and vocal tone / FX you've used. Dimetrodon - even as a Texas know-nothing, some of your lyrical references made me smile - you've done a good job of making it a compellin...

Silver Sack Gorilla - hahaha, amazing! What a way to start. The surf guitars and organs sound wonderful and I love those tom rolls. The vocal gets a bit drowned maybe but I dunno if that’s intentional - that would be my only critique anyway, this is rad. JB & Hugo - extremely charming and retro:...

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

Praise Muzak - love the instrumentation, really unusual. I can’t quite place what this reminds me of - maybe Bright Eyes? But the vocals make me think of Modest Mouse. Anyway I thought this was pretty cool. Dark Side of the Son - congrats on the win last time out! I liked the lyrics in this one (the...

Re: One last dance (Before the Music is Over reviews)

The Overambitious - the pitch-shifted vocal is cool at the start but I think it’s a bit overused over the course of the whole song. Killer musical touches as usual - I like how you integrate the guitar sounds into the electronics. The built where it builds up to the shouted line is really effective....

Re: Dredging Up Some (From The Depths Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - BSS songs always seem to grow on me. In my review of Forest Full of Graves I said I didn’t like the chorus that much, but by the end of the week I had it solidly stuck in my head for a couple of days! I’m already liking this one more on a second listen, that main riff is a re...
