Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Media

This was my (Micah Sommersmith) intended setlist, which as far as I can remember was the actual setlist as well (I didn't go back and watch my whole set but I don't remember changing it):

Whichever Whenever
Working On It
You Are a Guest
Cannibal Town
Let Them In
Glue
Incandescent
Dad Joke

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

I have a new album! I had copies at Song Fight Live a couple weeks ago and now it's online too, for pay-what-you-want download:

https://micahsommer.bandcamp.com/album/you-like-me

It's got five Song Fight songs, four SpinTunes songs, and five songs I wrote all by myself.

Re: Meet me at (The Supper Club prefight)

I have submitted the recording of my song from the Live Fight, bar noise and screwups included.

Thanks to fluffy for an excellent quality recording, and for the incredibly quick turnaround in trimming them and sending them all out!

I want to practice mixing. Somebody send me tracks!
I have an entire album (14 songs) that I'm not super happy about the mix of. That may be a bigger project than you're interested in though! It's mostly accordion/acoustic guitar/bass/drums/vocals, with the occasional other thing.

Re: Meet me at (The Supper Club prefight)

Is it an issue to have identical filenames for entries in different fights? This one will be identical to Sacred Coward. Probably it's happened before and our very intelligent Fightmaster knows how to deal with it, but I just noticed that.

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Gear Info

Hey Micah, the two mentioned already were mine, not the Rigby's. Would you be able to bring 5-6 total just so all the ones there are yours and we don't have any mixups as far as whose stands are whose? I left my church before I saw this request and won't be back before Sunday, sorry! But my stands ...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Gear Info

Just to confirm what was discussed in the main SF Live thread: I will be bringing four music stands from my church. If the Rigby already has two, I imagine that will be more than enough.

The music stands are of this general kind:

How many music stands will there be again? Sorry if that was spelled out already. I could pack one in my carry-on. We might want to have four total if possible.
I can bring some music stands. Good solid ones, not garbage wire stands. (No offense.)

I know some of you better than others, but if there's anything you'd like me to know for introduction purposes - biographical details, other musical/creative projects, how you came to Song Fight...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Musicians Exchange

I'd be happy to help out on your set, fluffy. I can play bass as long as you're not looking for super complex bass lines. I could play rhythm guitar or keyboard too. My chronic pain issues are still being a problem for me and so I'd appreciate more folks being able to help me out if possible. I'm li...

Ooh, Micah, we'd love to have you play accordion on one of our songs if you're game: https://soundcloud.com/sdouglass/merisan-excuse-me There's a little bit of my extremely rudimentary right-hand-only accordion playing in the interludes, and it could probably also benefit from some playing in the p...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Musicians Exchange

Wow, it's July already and I have been completely forgetting to check the boards about SF Live. Bad form! I can play keyboard or accordion for your set, or, in the event that terrorists take all the talented people hostage, guitar or bass. I'd also be interested in guitar, bass and drums, and maybe ...

Re: the words, Thank you for this reply. I hope my review didn't come across as an attack on you or your political stance, which I am sympathetic to.

Re: Would You Believe..... (Hope Against Hope Reviews)

Not Blue Dolphins - I like the intro, with that catchy lead guitar melody, and the chorus with doubled vocals is pretty solid. I’m not sure if I’m missing something stylistically with the lead vocal in the verses but it’s a real struggle for me, the timing is so weird and the lyrics feel kinda poet...

I've been listening to and enjoying this fight since it was posted; I wanted to write these reviews earlier but life has kept me busy.

Re: Songwriting competition judging mechanisms

If the goal is to have better rankings in general, everyone should be required to judge every X Nur Eins. Perhaps extend the round duration such that judges can put more thought in. How many times have you heard “I would have ranked this one higher if I could go back...” To me, the short turnaround...

Re: Would You Believe..... (Hope Against Hope Reviews)

Should "Possom Sauce" be "Possum Sauce"? The latter is how it's spelled in the ID3 tag, and there's (presumably the same?) artist with two earlier SF entries.
