Re: Spin Tunes 18 Round 3 - Tell Me What You Want

One things that I don’t understand is ‘modern mix’. What exactly does that mean? I did a Google and it sent me to a page from 2006, so….. I would really appreciate if you could elaborate for me / you’ve got a very strong production capability and I’d love to understand more of what you’re thinking ...

SpinTunes 18 Final Round - One-Two Punch

It Never Comes by Sober Well every night I lie awake And think about the music that we’d make And all the chords that we once knew But now we only play the two Chorus She plays that seventh, and her bassline starts walkin to the four But it never comes, my darling don’t play the D no more I think b...

Re: Spin Tunes 18 Round 3 - Tell Me What You Want

Governing Dynamics : bzzzzz. Very Deathcab. I love Deathcab. Thin out the kick drum during the chorus; the busy stuff is great for the verses, but the chorus is stadium rock time. The vocal is slightly too out front, and wanting a little more compression. Maybe bring up the band and throw a bit of ...

Re: Spin Tunes 18 Round 3 - Tell Me What You Want

Thanks both for taking the time to write reviews. I have a genuine question about the auto-tuning comments, and I'm going to do something that makes me super-uncomfortable to assist with my question... One thing to get straight right up front - I'm not a singer. Outside of SpinTunes and FAWM, and v...

Re: Spin Tunes 18 Round 3 - Tell Me What You Want

Quick thoughts. For reference, my focus tends to be on production and performance, rather than lyrical content. Also, I'm an idiot. Chas Rock : By Songfight standards, this is top-tier. Drunk groove, very fashionable. I'm very sad about your bass tone. Really needs more bottom end and punchy compres...

For reference: I will be traveling in the UK for these dates, so I will not be able to MC. I'll try to put together a set of some kind though.

Re: Goodbye Blue Lang

An irrelevant question I should have asked Blue years ago but I never did - someone might know… is Blue his real name? Blue is a very common nickname in Aus for people with red hair. I know lots of “Blues”. And it is now quite a common name for young kids - if their dads were “blues”. I don’t recal...

Remember Song Skirmishes? For that matter I think he might have been behind those too!
That was me. I ran and hosted a few, and I think maybe Jon Eric took over from there.

Re: Goodbye Blue Lang

This is terrible news. Blue's relentless, brutal criticism is what drove me to improve for years. He was never out of line with his comments, and he certainly wasn't wrong. I believe I got a "this isn't so bad" from him eventually, and I'm still buzzing on that, 15 years later. Meeting him in SFL Au...

I can co-host a night again if there's a need. Now that I have actual gainful employment, I don't know that I'll be able to contend with Glenn on content again. Long may he reign.

Re: It packs a wallop (Spiked Punch prefight)

Title and challenge lend themselves to the faux irish bullshit I used to sling around here. If I wasn't exhausted from Spintunes I might join in. Maybe I will anyway.

Re: SpinTunes 17 Round 2 Challenge

Mine's coming along ok. Had to redo a lot of the arrangement, as it unintentionally was sounding very much like the Godfather theme 🤦‍♂️

Also trying some things musically outside my comfort zone, so I look forward to being on the cut list next week 😎
