Re: Cutting corners on your mix? (They Know reviews)

oh yeah; on the file naming I realized I had been sometimes (on about half of my entries so far) been capitalizing my band name like ThirdCat instead of thirdcat, will fix that for future entries. James Owens - yes my ending bit is kind of just tacked on there and doesn't really fit the rest of it, ...

Re: Cutting corners on your mix? (They Know reviews)

OG Lawn Darts - Love the groove. Nice mix of keys and guitars. The overall sounds nice & open, everything is clear. Vocals sit nicely in the mix and have a nice bit of attitude to them. Really nice touch having the vocals doubled at certain points ("they know" "we know") to make 'em jump out. Reall...

Re: Cutting corners on your mix? (They Know reviews)

Just listened to all of the songs straight through and I think this is one of my favorite fights so far, lots of cool stuff. Will do some reviews after more listens. James Owens stood out for me again - this time reminded me of David Bowie a bit. Cool topical lyrics that drew me in too. But really t...

Re: Let's all work hard on (Nights And Weekends Reviews)

I'll take it! definitely wasn't expecting it for this one but I'll take it. the cat takes what he can get. guess it's a bit easier to get a win(tie) when there's only 5 entries. congrats to James Owens for real though, thought his song was pretty pretty... pretty good. (/larrydavid/)

Re: Spintunes 15 Round 3 Challenge

Not sure how I would have ranked 'em as a judge but I think Vom Vorton's was my personal favorite of the round. Appreciate all of the feedback from the judges, the in-depth reviews are interesting.

They Know

"They Know" - Third Cat I'll keep pretending I'm the man that you wish to think I am. But they've seen the video so they know it's all for show. If you look too close, it's all dark. If you look too close, it's all dark. If you look too close, it's all dark. (with just a spark you can see the mark) ...

Re: Let's all work hard on (Nights And Weekends Reviews)

Love your new intro music. Listening to your podcast now to unwind from working on my spintunes track (and getting it in with 30 minutes to spare). On the optional challenge; I haven't really tried to do any of those optional challenges, I guess I am a jive turkey. Dig your funkified version of the ...

Re: Spintunes 15 Round 3 Challenge

We're deep enough into this thing that I figure I can reveal my "in the style of" target. early '80s New Wave. more particularly: YAZ (or YAZOO) - in particular their first album Upstairs at Eric's and even more particularly their single "Only You." I've mostly got my instrumental done and my melody...

Re: First they live, now (They Know prefight)

Love this title, gives me ideas right off. Don't have anything down yet but definitely plan on getting something written & recorded for this title. Seems like a title that will bring in a lot of entries, but of course I thought the same thing about "Nights & Weekends"

Re: Let's all work hard on (Nights And Weekends Reviews)

BSS - I like the groove and the feel on the intro. I also like the verse vocal melody and the tone of the vocal there is pretty nice. But I do find some of the vocal tuning a bit distracting. Although I realize you have to rush things with these songfights (I usually find myself in a similar positio...

Re: WTF Are The Modes?!

Mixolydian is good, Dorian is lovely, Phrygian is nice for getting an "exotic" sound I think, I've used it a few times for guitar solos. The other two I haven't found much use for yet. Agreed with the idea that it's best to think of them as major or minor but with one scale degree different, that wa...

Re: Let's all work hard on (Nights And Weekends Reviews)

Nice small fight! Will be easy to write in-depth reviews of everyone's songs this week. I thought there'd be more entries with "Nights & Weekends" because it's a great title, but all good. Just listened to all of the tracks and I think they're all pretty strong. Probably the bit that most stood out ...

I really liked the Faster Jackelope song, that was my favorite of the round. Lots of cool stuff but that one was really up my alley I think.

Re: Spintunes 15 Round 3 Challenge

Already chose my artist & song I want to use as my guide. I think it's far enough away from my usual style to satisfy the judges on that account. This should be an interesting round, and yes a challenging challenge :!:

Re: Let's all sit down and read (Poetry In The Streets Reviews)

First Impressions: Paco: This has quite a different vibe from the other stuff of yours I think, I really dig it - it's got a sort of off kilter psychedelic pop thing going on. Just so much going on here, I think it would take me more listens to really catch it all. Based on my first listen this is a...
