Re: New Music Friday - 9/13/19

I just finished breathe by Tiny Moving Parts. It is a decent emo record. A lot of the folks I know and play music with would like it. I listened to the entire Metronomy album but didn't think it was all that engaging. They had one song I liked called Upset my Girlfriend: I used to play drums in I us...

Re: New Music Friday - 9/13/19

Green Day - same attitude, new production The Weezer song was like adding rainbow sprinkles to vanilla ice cream, they don't actually taste different,...

Re: RIP Ric Ocasek :(

Yeah, this one is tough as well. Not just for the music, but for his production as well.

RIP Eddie Money

I don't know why this makes me as sad as it does. I don't know any of his songs that weren't played on the radio. If he had only given us Two Tickets to Paradise, it would have been enough. Rock and Roll lost a little something something this week. https://www.npr.org/2019/09/13/760514761/eddie-mone...

Re: Artist interrupts new single with an ad

My initial reaction is that if an artist wants to advertise on a streaming service they should pay for an ad like any other company and keep their music off of it.

True Men Don't Kill Coyotes

For some reason, this song popped into my head this morning, and I've been a little obsessed with it. The structure is fairly repetitive, but it doesn't feel long. Also the production, like the hard panned guitar stabs and high hats. When was the last time you thought about an oddball song from 1984...

so my camera will stop and start every 28 minutes or so if no one stops it sand starts it.
I think the camera was just rolling.
Yeah, I didn't know or didn't remember that. It was just on all night unattended. I think last year I was able to stop and start again between sets.

Re: Online Music Making Challenge Calendar

Here's another one called Weekly Beats where you upload a song a week for 52 weeks. I think this only happens every other year, so no 2019, but will happen again in 2020.

Re: Online Music Making Challenge Calendar

Added links to Sam's list so people could get information about these things easily. Couldn't find Rocktober or Notevember.

Maybe we should just have a yearly section for Songfight and also Album-a-day, things that don't happen once a year.

I also want to say thank you to everyone for a great Song Fight Live Madison. I was exhausted on Sunday and slept most of the flight home and still went to bed early. It was great meeting folks and playing music and hanging around. I look forward to seeing you again soon!

Does anyone have a camera tripod they can bring to the Rigby? I have the video camera, but I think my tripod is at my practice space and I don't have time to pick it up before I leave.
