Re: Nur Ein XIV Round One "Shock Value"

Do you like to play music on your computer that lives on your hard drive? Are you passionate about metadata? Does an unordered mess of mp3s in your media player stress you out? Do you have feelings about spaces in filenames? Do you like to view your music collection as albums rather than songs? If ...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Zero "Message Received"

We do have a flaw in trying to get too cute with the challenges. In ‘Trial by Fire’ we added a mythological siren as well as a physical one. 3:20 added ambiance of an Olive Garden. Colorblind ended up being an XTC / Dukes of the Stratosphere homage to a cuckholded Elizabethan. Not the most accessib...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Zero "Message Received"

hello all. I have not caught up on the thread because I've been busy writing my reviews. I really enjoyed most of the songs in this round - congratulations on a great start!!! Note about using the title in the challenge: It is my understanding (and I've asked Nivs and he agreed with me) that you mus...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Three "We Should"

LW/RG- Making new strides in recording! Challenge met. The lyrics are great! I’m very familiar with the lyrical style of Niv, I assume these are Niv lyrics. The backing vocals sound awesome a lot of the time, but they fight the lead vocals in a couple spots. That tag to the verse melody takes me st...

Re: [Meta] Nur Ein website will begin correcting MP3 tags

Yeah, iTunes uses "Album Artist" to group albums. So that would be great if it was set to Various Artists. Thanks!!

Re: [Meta] Nur Ein website will begin correcting MP3 tags

I'm fine with that, though in my own iTunes I make them as a compilation (Artist = "Various Artists", Name = {Round Title} - {Artist Name}, compilation box checked), that might be too difficult to do programmatically. Definitely better than leaving them as whatever random thing the submitter put in ...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Three "We Should"

We're in! Our song is about a person imagining futures with his partner and they get steadily more twisted and creepy. A little bit wacky but still on brand for Lucky Witch. Recorded in the rehearsal studio at Rivington Music in NYC.

Our featured guest is Tom's friend Chris, playing a coffee grinder.

We Should ( LW | RG ) We could find some cash in the street We could buy a lottery ticket We could maybe double our money If you think you want to risk it We could buy a car with our winnings We could drive it out to the sea We could pay off our student loans And put ourselves at ease chorus (x2): ...
