Re: Say when (Seems Like A Little Too Much reviews)

Lunkhead - I'll just add that to understand you have to try singing backups over Smalltown's vox - it's a treat in itself. :) Thanks for the comments. No doubt Rich is a monster singer though - his album is a mainstay in our house.

Re: Chug! Chug! Chug! (Bottle Neck reviews)

What a fight! Lots of good and great work in here - nothing that totally sucks. Right on! Micah Sommersmith -Love the reflecting on life and it’s journey vibe - the music fits the oeuvre of the lyrics. The opening was a little worrisome, but it came together nicely. Being someone who reflects this w...

Re: Pedal to the metal (Corvette reviews)

Toby Roktot The intro didn't sell it well - but once the song settles I dig it - cross between Dylan and Bruce Cockburn. The refrain just puts me off because the intensity of the playing makes the timing get sloppy. I keep hoping for the third part. Needs a third part. This one is charming. The Magn...

Every once in a while the schedules line up and Gert dusts itself off for a tune - really awesome to jump in the ring with those cats. Looking forward to this fight.

DJ Ranger Den Awesomeness: Short and sweet. Your voice has a really nice quality to it - simple, pretty. I like the picked out guitar work.

Re: Because We're All Horrible People (No Good Can... Review

The Hip Cola Lots of interesting sounds here -- the record sound at the end, the broken up guitar at the start, these are all really nice flourishes that add a lot of color. The gruff angry prophet distorted vocals are somewhat at odds with with the one planet one people kumbya message and are too ...

Re: This cocaine didn't do anything for me. [No Rush Reviews

Last half of my reviews: Berkely Social Scene Awesome: reverb on the guitar is awesome (stereo guitars collpasing to a less stereo ghost) - vocal character is great. Nice and tight! Not So Much: nothing - this is a great song all around. Nice work! The only quibble is sometimes the guitars sound out...

Re: This cocaine didn't do anything for me. [No Rush Reviews

First half of my reviews: Hillbilly Awesome: This is pure awesome. Namecheck works. Purring noise made me LOL Not so much: WAY too short. Overall: I'd consider voting for a longer, more realized version of this. Nice work! Toby Roktot Awesome: Pacing/cadence of the vox is spot on. Not so much: lack ...

Re: Gonna write her a song, eh?

Nope - only the ones who emigrated from Oz. ;)

No self-respecting Canadian Girlfriend plays Bryan Adams at her wedding. The especially cool ones go the added step of reviewing the DJ's set lists in advance to catch those things.

yah.. I didn't even think to link up videos and stuff. Maybe I should.
