Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

it is with a heavy heart that i must report that I have had to visit my local a&e department, and now have my arm in a sling, following an extremely cool skateboarding accident. apologies for not being able to get one in for this round, it was going to be an absolute banger, but it means that there'...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round One "The Handbook"

getting my comments in early. what a ROUND though. really good, right the way through. again, not something to say about everything here, but standouts for me are: frankie big face - big fuzzy bass! big fuzzy vocals! I love the falsetto "ooooo", and I like how everything sounds wide and full. really...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round One "The Handbook"

I do not have liner notes for this song, other than that I kind of set out to make a bit of a goofy tribute to the best genre of the early 00s. And then as I was making it, it became an earnest song about a real thing, which I am just chronically unable not to do, it seems. So now it's just an earne...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Zero "This is Fine"

here's some assorted thoughts - I don't have something to say about every track, and just cause I didn't say anything, doesn't mean I didn't like it, it just meant I had nothing of value to add. ANYWAY, 8th grade team - bopping instrumental, and I really like the vocal treatment. I agree with vowl, ...

NUR EIN XV - The Handbook

rain - the handbook step 1, if you’re gonna try and get out of this mess you’re in, you’re gonna wanna steel yourself - cause this one is your fault step 2! yeah, you gotta get a little introspective, a little bit detective, and then you’ve gotta work out what you done if you’re looking for a voice ...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Zero "This is Fine"

oh cool, liner notes! uh I'm not super happy with the clarity of purpose on my track, but I had something very shaky happen in the past few days that reminded me of Someone Bad, and it was just like, if I'm not writing a song about this, what else is there? essentially I wanted to capture the why an...

Re: NUR EIN XV - This Is Fine

rain - this is fine I don’t like to be compelled to think about it. So I don’t like it when it comes crawling to me. But it happens all the time, it’s stuck into my mind, and now everything i hear is out to get me. Close my eyes and yell until I can’t hear anything. and you have to know that you’re ...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Six "You Too"

hey folks! thanks for the kind words again, it's been a real pleasure writing songs; just some parting thoughts! when writing this week's entry, i felt very much that the simpler song was just a more honest thing to do, and people have noticed the production/arrangement/songwriting being, less compl...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Four "No Memory"

if i'm reading back on the nur ein website right, weren't all the songs ranked in previous competitions regardless of immunity? and then it only impacted the knockouts? i could definitely be wrong

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

frankie! thanks for the kind words! the sample is indeed the "i missed out" part, it's from a song called old kid (that you can find here - https://rainrain.bandcamp.com/track/old-kid-3), so it is like, a part 2 song? it was the only way i could imagine tackling this challenge really, it felt so nat...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Four "No Memory"

i have been feeling weirdly prophetic about all of these challenges, yknow, writing a diss track before the diss track challenge, sampling a previous entry before the sample challenge, and last round's entry had this little chiptune synth line... very curious, niv, very curious
