Re: To see the truth, don your (X-Ray Specs prefight)

I'm not in this fight -- not directly anyway.

It's a great title, but what with one thing and another, I didn't come up with an entry.

Re: He lips his (Dot Dot Dot prefight)

I'm sorry to have to do this, but I sent an updated MP3 just now. The other one sounded OK on headphones, but I discovered that on my PC speakers it was really earsplitting. I had to do a remix, and since I was in there, I made an edit or two. The result is a slightly smaller file with a considerabl...

Re: Dot Dot Dot

You know some things are better left unsaid But what if the things start to speak for themselves And then you have to block your ears and sing 'la la la la la' But that annoys the elves who live behind the cabinet And they come out at night and they hit you in your sleep, yelling Bang, the world is ...

Re: You won't appreciate a kind review (Until It Happens To You reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - Brisk, tight, and clean, with a solid vocal performance (good performances all round, in fact). The appealing commercial catchiness is interrupted by a less accessible musical moment or two, but overall this has crowd appeal. dark side of the son - This runs a little long fo...

Re: You won't believe it (Until It Happens To You prefight)

Wreckdom - the music isn’t yet posted so I’ve not heard it, but regardless of what it’s like I’m voting for you based on your lyrics alone. Truly awesome :) Since you bring it up, I was going to give Lichen Throat a shout-out for outstanding lyrics. My wife liked them too, and she actually read the...

Re: (Don't be a) Lazy Boy (or girl and do your) Reviews

Berkeley Social Scene This stands out for the curious church-organ intro and the doubled leads, first on guitar and then on synth. Also for the good groove, helped by the steady exchange between the synth punctuation at the start of the bar and the rhythm guitar punctuation a little later. The acce...

Re: Two Bits To Pay The (Toll of the Inferno Reviews)

Dark Side of the Son - . . . I think this is a James Owens live side project, not that different from Squirrels in the Attic, but tighter and slightly more focused. I had nothing to do with this song ( EDIT was "unless I was its inspiration" -- sorry, I had a brain fart, that would be &qu...

Re: Take A Deep Breath And Smell Those (Foxglove reviews)

ARSEnal -- The lyrics take an imaginative approach to the title. I don't know if they require the disembodied vocals, but it's a riveting effect. The music is very layered, a little muddy, but with a rich, full palette. The top layer of the music feels a bit arbitrary near the end. Berkeley Social S...

TPP, Canada, and Australia and New Zealand

As a Canadian, I'd like to know how the recent Australian and New Zealand reports of our prime minister pulling a no-show at the TPP the other day are playing on the ground down under (assuming anyone there noticed).
