Re: Nur Ein XIII Final Round "The End"

Ha, another killer synth solo!

This one is a lot of fun, although as a Brit there is a certain F-word that briefly made me go "whaaaaaaaaaaaat?" until I remembered that it means something different in the US, haha.

Re: Nur Ein XIII Final Round "The End"

That's a truly epic shadow collab! So much going on in there, I love the mandolin (?), the super-bassy vocal that comes in on some parts and the guitar solo but - most of all - the synth solo which is nuts, and really makes me grin. Great use of all of your voices.

Re: Nur Ein XIII Final Round "The End"

Good luck, Merisan! Your song is extremely pretty.

Enjoying the iVeg shadow too, your voice sounds really good on this one.

Has the Mandibles / Cavedwellers shadow actually been posted somewhere? I only see the lyrics.

Right, finally settled on a mix after repeatedly running back to make tweaks all day. My song is IN.

The End - Vom Vorton I’ve heard it said it’s all about the journey not to focus too much on the destination but it’s tricky not to think about the ending when you’re facing nuclear obliteration so as we huddle in our shelters and we whisper words of solace let our voices rise together and please jo...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Six "Fan Theory"

Reuploaded the Mandible's shadow entry to One Ruhm. Everyone had trouble with the mix, so I messed with the levels. Doesn't matter 'cause it's a shadow, right? Just want it to sound good. :) Definitely sounds better, there's a real wall-of-sound vibe to it now. The melody on the "ask anyone......

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Six "Fan Theory"

I had to look up assonance to try to get a handle on it myself... as I understand it, it's sort of like alliteration but just for vowel sounds, so my chorus hits the "ee" sound repeatedly: sh e and m e , w e 're m e rel y a w ea k fan th e or y And I tried to include smaller examples throu...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Six "Fan Theory"

Strong set of songs! Reviews after a couple of listens to each song: Carlo Bruno Jr. - some really interesting ideas here. I love the way the “middle ages” stuff in the lyric links up with that middle-ages-y lead keyboard (or is it woodwind?) sound, and the change-up in the drums midway through work...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Five "Hazardous Waste"

Sorry to see you go! I had a listen to your first studio album last week, curious to hear what your sound was like without the added ambience, and I thought it was very cool. Farewell to Grumpy Mike and Mandibles also. I had the chorus from the Mandibles song stuck in my head all day today which app...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Five "Hazardous Waste"

Vom Vorton Vocal is a bit strained at times. This is true. I was originally singing the verses an octave lower, then I realised it made the song sound really boring so I moved up. Think I just about got away with it, but one of these days I should really learn how to write songs in the right key fo...

Re: I'll Punch You If You Don't Support (Peace Among Worlds Reviews)

shrts - I'm listening at work and somehow I got interrupted with a question and had to pause this midway through my first listen. Quite impressive for a 35 second song. But yeah, it's short, and it rocks. add - this is a really great bit of indie rock with some good hooks. Love the handclaps. Guita...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Five "Hazardous Waste"

Carlo Bruno Jr. - this is wonderfully atmospheric and I love the glitchy editing (which ties in perfectly to the beatbox elements). Really well produced, interesting lyric. Nothing really to criticise. Grumpy Mike - extremely bassy mix, the little bluetooth speaker I used for my first listen couldn...

I'm looking forward to checking out the new Gruff Rhys (ex-Super Furry Animals) record which is out today, but I'm pretty sure I'm getting it for my birthday on Monday so I haven't taken the plunge yet. I meant to have a listen to Snail Mail today, but forgot. Sounds like it could be my kind of thin...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Four "Never Knew The Guy"

Thanks, Judges! Although I wish there was one more round of immunity, because that beatbox challenge is, as they say, "kicking my ass".

My two favourites from this round got eliminated. Sorry to see you all go.

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Four "Never Knew The Guy"

Inflatable Vegetables - excellent synthing, the mix of synth and guitar at the start sounds really good and the melodies are interesting and unusual. The vocal does sound a bit muddy / unclear in places, the layers in the chorus work well though.
