Re: Tasting the (The Sugary Goo Inside reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - this is my favourite BSS song for a while. The slightly unusual drum rhythm left me feeling like it was in a strange time signature the first time I listened, but then I realised that it isn't... which isn't a positive or negative, I'm just rambling here. I love the twinkly ...

Re: SpinTunes 15 Round 4 Challenge (Final Round)

Vom Vorton - One Turkey Sandwich I would have went with a different title, if only to make it easier to look up later on. It was called "Office Christmas Party" right up until I submitted but I suddenly got paranoid that that was too generic. Titles are hard, especially after getting used to the So...

Re: SpinTunes 15 Round 4 Challenge (Final Round)

Sorry glennny, I copied and pasted all the artist and song names from Bandcamp because I'm lazy. So at least I can blame our SpinTunes overlords.

Re: SpinTunes 15 Round 4 Challenge (Final Round)

Thoughts after about five or six listens... Zoe Gray - My Typewriter and Me - this is really, really good. Just the right amount of cleverness, wistfulness, emotion... I love how the dynamics shift and build up but then there are quieter moments later on too, and the shift to the minor key for the l...

SpinTunes 15 - Round 4 - It Grows On You

Re: Cutting corners on your mix? (They Know reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - this is the most frustrating BSS song that I've heard. I like the punky energy but the shift to the slow middle-8 and solo totally shoots it in the foot for me. If there was ever a BSS song that didn't need a solo, it's this one. The gang vocals at the end are great, in my F...

Re: Cutting corners on your mix? (They Know reviews)

I've been listening in the car today. Really interesting mix of songs, I love it when there's a good mix of guitars and synths and a few stranger entries. I'll write some reviews after a few more listens.

Re: Spintunes 15 Round 3 Challenge

Thanks thirdcat! Excellent work making the final! I thought I was doing a really good job with my song up until the point where I added the vocals, I just don't think I found a way to get the right level of RAWK into them and after a couple of takes it hurt too much to try again (which is probably a...

Re: Spintunes 15 Round 3 Challenge

Good Guy Sojabe - Ahab - this has to be one of the best takes on the challenge. If somebody had played this to me and said that it was Moby, I'd have totally accepted it. I like the downbeat vocals and general vibe. I may have missed something here. The only Moby album I'm really familiar with is '...

Re: Spintunes 15 Round 3 Challenge

I think this was the trickiest round yet in figuring out which songs did the best job of fulfilling the challenge while also being excellent songs in their own right. I mostly listened in my car again, in order to make sure that any subtleties and nuance were eradicated by the hum of sad engines. Br...

Re: Let's all work hard on (Nights And Weekends Reviews)

That was great fun. I'm quite glad I didn't get my song finished (or even started really) as it was going to be a lament for wasted nights and weekends where I partied TOO hard, and also I have not one ounce of funk in me. That said, I really liked the funkified theme tune and the funk version of Pa...

Re: Let's all work hard on (Nights And Weekends Reviews)

James Owens - the guitar riff kinda reminds me of Taxman by the Beatles? Which is quite appropriate for the workin'-man lyrics. I love the instrumental interlude bits, the way the synths glide in is beautiful. The song as a whole is not 100% up my street but only in a personal taste kinda way as I ...

Re: Spintunes 15 Round 3 Challenge

Sweet! Can't wait to hear that. I love 80s new wavey synthpop stuff! I figured that the safest way to ensure I was going way out of my standard sonic zone was to go heavy, so I'm aiming for stoner rock, with a particular focus on Californian cult rock legends Fu Manchu. I've been listening to them o...

Another enjoyable one! I think the weird percussion you reference must be the distorted drum loop thing I mentioned above. Guess that didn't really work out!

Re: I only work days, and (Nights and Weekends prefight)

I was hoping to get another late entry in but I don't think it's going to happen this time. I second the praise for this title, though. It inspired a lot of ideas in me that I've been too busy and/or exhausted to follow through on
