Re: Don't bring me down with your (High and Higher reviews)

Congrats, Pannacotta army! Well deserved win. :) Thank you also to everyone who wrote reviews! Mandibles : This immediately has very Musical Theatre vibes. It’s feel reminds me a lot of the song “Ring of Keys” from Fun Home. Your vocals feel a little low in the mix, but that being said, I can clearl...

Re: Don't bring me down with your (High and Higher reviews)

Reviews: Phlebia: I like what you did with your vocals. They are indecipherable, but the PinPointable tunefulness of them Balances out the organized din of the rest of the arrangement. Higher and higher is really pretty. Whispering interludes is trippy and cool. I voted for This, mainly because it w...

High and Higher By Mandibles Screaming Laughter, untied Shoes Summer sky’s awash in blues Loft plans lie just beyond Before the day has come and gone I feel the wind rush by Kicking my legs into the sky I’m swinging high And higher are my hopes and dreams In the sky Their guiding light is taunting m...

Re: Last warning: (Please Scream Inside Your Heart reviews)

Ok, it took a while, but here’s my reviews, no particular order: Robyn Mackenzie: the best part is when you add in the layered vocals. From there to end it much more interesting. The solo vocal sound a bit exposed, and under supported. It really emphasizes the pitchiness, too. The pitchiness isn’t t...

Cybronica – ...I mean I can’t fault the production or the technical ability, it’s all performed and put together superbly... Woo hoo! Honestly, I wrote the song in an evening, and spent the rest of my time making this a case study for working to improve my production skills, so I am delighted by yo...

Coming out of the woodworks to say that I am IN with a song that was mainly done to practice my mixing technique (thanks to Grumpy Mike for the feedback!)

Right now I'm re-constructing Mandibles' song and documenting it. Maybe at a future date I'll reveal a shiny new rendering to Abigail during a podcast? Seems like people might be interested in that.
Im totally in!

This is great! I mentioned this elsewhere, but I just want to say this is my favorite song of yours. It’s beautiful, with a good momentum and a lovely swell, and the way you incorporate the photo’s back story into words is really well done. Thank you!

Re: NUR EIN XV - Homestretch

Mandibles This song grapples with the feeling of hopelessness when awful things are happening- a broken relationship, a crisis of self, and the dispelling of the vision of the life you thought you were going to live. People keep telling you that it will be ok, that things will go back to normal, tha...

Hey, Mandibles sent in a shadow just before midnight, but I’m not seeing it in the line up. Did it get left off?

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Five "North Beach Vampires"

You know how when you haven’t properly gone outside for a really long time (Like months) and you lose any glimpse of a tan you might have had and you joke about Being a vampire because you haven’t seen the sun in so long? Also you know actual vampires? Yeah, that’s what Mandibles’ song is about.

TBH I’m delighted that that’s your big takeaway, and even more so delighted that the big takeaway wasn’t that I’m a giant freaking nerd. I had a really lovely time on the podc...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Four "Carte Blanche"

Cybronica, I'm sorry to bear bad news, but you were incorrect about my having been in a choir. I have spent a lot of time hanging out with the choir and musical theatre kids, and know a fair bit about the theory of vocal technique... I am again corrected, but this time I sit for it. And, as far as ...

In terms of my recording setup, I took a picture for you! I’m definitely a stand-upperer, currently in that tiny space between two printing presses. I have historically been terrified to sing in front of anyone, but am definitely aware of my faults and trying to work on my delivery. I think/hope I’...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Four "Carte Blanche"

Thanks for the reviews, all! I really enjoy reading them. :) Mandibles - This started out as a very promising song! Those verses are excellent, but I do not like the chorus at all. You have written half of a song that is a very good Bond theme. The horns, and overall instrumentation are quite good. ...
