Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Four "Waiting For The Sun To Fall"

I believe the judges will be requiring us to build a Neolithic circular enclosure for this round. I have already begun work on mine - the distinctive ambience it creates should propel me to an easy victory. Wait, so we're not writing songs about a circular piece of steel, as part of an armour harne...

I didn't get my shadow finished on time, so I'll try writing some reviews to erase the shame of my failure. :D

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round One "Pareidolia"

The Serviettes - I'm sorry to say, this is one of those situations where something is grating on me, but I have a hard time articulating why. In this case, it's the lead vocal. You're not off-key, at least not conspicuously so. You're not phoning it in - I can hear that you're really getting into i...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Six "Homestretch"

Some liner notes for my shadow: I wanted to write about the world entering the homestretch before its destruction and thought it would be cool to try to cram the whole of human history into a three minute song. Unfortunately, a) I've been really busy with work this week, so didnt have much time and ...

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

Some liner notes for my shadow: It took me a few attempts before I landed on what I was gonna do for this challenge. I started off going for a surf tune, which was awful. Then I moved on to indie rock, which was just a bit dull. I eventually settled on doing the whole thing a cappella (I'm sure some...

Some Nonsensical Tangent is next week’s title.

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

Can I just check, is this title some kind of cultural reference not immediately obvious to non-Americans or is it just a random collection of words? I've had a look on the interwebs but can't see anything.

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Four "Carte Blanche"

Some notes for my shadow: I absolutely loved this challenge, as I'm a sucker for some Bond music(especially the John Barry era). Most of the themes have nothing to do with the film they're from, other than shoehorning the title in, so no plot from me for an imaginary one. I've tried to use vst brass...
