Re: Kiss It All Goodbye

Kiss It All Goodbye by Lichen Throat I’m the fattest of fat cats, Got money to burn. A bona fide plutocrat; Eight figures I earn. I don’t eat anywhere Without five stars on Yelp. Got a house that will become A museum about itself. But if I miss my margin call, Then you can kiss it all Goodbye. I put...

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

I finished an album in April that I keep forgetting to tell people about. https://micahsommer.bandcamp.com/album/the-bottleneck-and-other-stories It includes (variously reworked versions of) five Songfight entries, one Circle of Titles entry, and five songs I came up with all by myself.

Re: Dredging Up Some (From The Depths Reviews)

When I read vowlvom’s review, I was struck by how he seemed to have already expressed my exact opinions on all of this fight’s entries better than I could have done myself; we must have similar tastes. But here are a few supplemental thoughts: Berkeley Social Scene—I didn’t pay attention to the lyri...

Re: Dredging Up Some (From The Depths Reviews)

Lichen Throat - Ok, I could be totally off here, but I’m pretty sure you're using midi notes within your DAW (GarageBand, logic pro, Ableton, etc.). Nothing wrong with that, I use in-house synths for 95% percent of my sounds. Problem is, its painfully obvious its fake (now if this was your goal, yo...

From the Depths

From the Depths by Lichen Throat Half a mile down and three miles back, Five tiny lights in a world of black. Glad I’m not down here all alone, Nothing but water dripping on limestone. Cavern after cavern to explore; No one’s ever been this deep before. One more climb and we’ll call it a day. Grabb...

Bone Saw

Bone Saw by Lichen Throat I was born in old Kiev, Came here on a boat. Moved in with my uncle Lev, Owned nothing but my coat. Now I work in the packing plant Got used to the smell. Wash the blood out of my pants In the tenement where I dwell. I run the bone saw; I make twelve bucks a day. The stray...

Re: No sunlight in sight (Black Days reviews)

Balance Lost —I didn’t like this the first time I heard it, but since then it’s become more enjoyable with every listen. Lots of good lyrical lines. Good rhythm, too. A couple of the lines (“but nothing got fixed” and “how the hell did they reach that conclusion”) seem to break the lyrical meter; w...

I'm finding that although many words rhyme with "saw," surprisingly few of them fit well in my song.

Re: Black Days

Black Days by Lichen Throat They’re selling amulets down at the market. People are boarding up windows and doors. They say the plague has come back to London; Those are the words that no one can ignore. Heard there’s an outbreak out in the West End, Heard that it started on Drury Lane. All of my nei...

Re: Listen Through The Static For Your (Cassini Reviews)

2 guitars and a bass live—This is pretty unfocused and never seems to really get going. Each individual component sounds good, particularly the bass, but I don’t think it comes together into a cohesive, purposeful song. Huygens—There are a lot of little things to pick at here: the mix is too loud, s...

Re: Cassini

Cassini by Lichen Throat [Alien 1] What is this metal device? Where is it from? Why is it here? [Alien 2] Perhaps it’s sent to spy on us. Launched in ‘97, I’ve been out here for twenty years. The sun’s so distant. I’ve gotten so lonely; So dark and cold, never going home. Call me Cassini, But I can’...

Re: In our final orbits (Cassini prefight)

I tried to write sort of a techno-country song. Unfortunately, the song had a mind of its own, and it went crazy, ending up as neither techno nor country. So it's an extra weird entry this time.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round One

Just a few thoughts on my favorite two songs of Round One: Skub--I am not predisposed to like anything about this song, but it's really impressive. A rhythm that makes me want to shake my ass, great sounding bass, excellent vocal performance. This is now my all time favorite disco song. Congratulati...

After You by Lichen Throat After you went to your cottage at night, I stayed awake in the silver moonlight, Relived every memory again in my head. I should have slept, but I daydreamed instead. After you, after you, I chase after you, And I’m pretty sure that you chase after me, too. After you kiss...
