Re: Don't hit me with a guitar (Brace Yourself reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene: The guitar tones are sweet – nice variation in the playing/panning/placement. The chorus is simple but the harmony and call + answer in it goes a long way.

Re: 2022 hopes and wishes

I hope you get that tooth.

I've been reading more, finding solace and escape in fiction mostly. I would also like to be more active in the new year. I also want to learn something. Maybe take some guitar lessons or something.

Yeah, I am thinking about it. I like that I have week for each thing. A daily thing just seems like too much pressure.

Re: Songfighter Videos on YouTube

I had a lyric video made for Winter Wonderland by Berkeley Holiday Band, which was basically a Tiny Robots/Berkeley Social Scene project we did for fun 10 years ago. Feel free to add it to your holiday playlists or whatever.

Re: I bought two lottery tix but (It Wasn't My Good Fortune reviews)

Since Silver Lining was made up of 50% BSS members, it is kind of like we won 1.5 of this fight. Congrats all for making really strong songs this round. Well done.

Favorite Music of 2021

Hi All,
What are your top songs, albums, etc. from 2021?

I bought a lot of albums on vinyl this year, but I think the one I listened to the most is Obviously by Lake Street Dive. I just keep going back to this album. What about you?

Re: Extra postage needed for (The Weight Of My Heart reviews)

Here are some quick reviews on my first listen on my laptop. There are some really good songs in this fight! Berkeley Social Scene : This song came out good. I like how collaborative this track was for us. The first draft of this song was 6 minutes long. Glen and Martin cut it down to tight 3 minute...

Re: Novembeat

It looks like folks just upload bandcamp album sites. Am I understanding that you don't upload a beat a day or anything like that?
