Berkeley Social Scene - "When I die and they lay me to rest, I'm gonna go to the place that's the best." ;-) Your influences are worn proudly on your sleeve this time around. I really like your chorus on this one. It might be the hookiest thing you've submitted so far. I especially love how the bac...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Two "Drag Me Around"

Dear Jerks - BSS with "the most boring and repetitive chorus I've heard in a long time". Well, I didn't intend to go that far with it, but I was surprised that you didn't make the leap to connect the repetition with the title and and theme of the lyrics. Oh, poor me, another misunderstood artist. O...

doting owner + all the delicious meat scraps you can eat though?! Doesn’t seem too bad for the most part.
When your owner is clearly unraveling, so obsessed with his gross hobby that it results in your physical danger, it's taken a downward turn, no?

Re: Planning a full album, or how to inject excel into every part of life

Everything serves you as the artist and your vision. Can you explain what this is? Like others have said, it's a project and and all projects are are constrained by the iron triangle of budget, time and scope. And scope isn't limited to the audio - there's marketing, promo, distro, publishing, perfo...

I guested on a BSS track or two some years later without ever knowing what SF even was. Years later (2019) I finally started playing more regularly with BSS and even started s...
