Thanks for all the songs - I tried writing you some reviews, I hope they're okay.

Abjure! - you know what you're doing. You have clever cheeky lyrics and phrasing and it's all very well produced. Would I listen to it again? Probably not...

Seeseeretc - I'm digging the gentle Imperial March backing. I'm reading Digital Minimalism at the moment, and I misheard your lyric as "the Internet is Bad", and I appreciated that connection. A fun story, either way

ChrisClub - I want more of each bit of this. This has a really strong vibe.

SPoF (it me!) - 69bpm, what a dickhead. I've been trawling through My Morning Jacket back catalogue, and I think some of the reverb found its way into my yeahs.

Johnny Poundsign - starts strong with that synth line. It's not a bad song, but I don't understand the breakdown section.

BSS - feels like we've got a lot of lines that needed to be reconsidered to make them scan better. I'm really digging the chimney guitar on my right side. Bonus points for high jump references.

Manifesto - "don't we all feel a little used" is a great lyric. There are production notes that someone more capable than me could give you, so I'll just note that the drums feel a little 'ploddy' (and yes I realise the inequality of that statement when I'm giving you 69bpm)

You misspelled my name so I corrected it for you (by the way it's written j$ not j£ so the joke, if that's what is, doesn't even work. I have no idea why know why this wriles me so much, to be honest.) Anyway, I wonder whether you are reviewing a different song, as I have no idea what you're talking about! To these broken ears, I didn't write either a synth line or a breakdown section. Yes, there's a synth on the track. Thanks, anyway.

The poundsign makes sense because you is British. Anywho - didn't intend to upset you with my silly names, so I am sorry for that.

Okay / the synth is probably a guitar or something then. That descending line that starts the song, the 'not in a farm shop' lyric - all very nice.

The breakdown - the bit from 30 to 45 seconds - that's then it I can't get my head around.

Anywho - be well, and motor on

Cheers for the clarification. Didn't upset me about the name, just annoyed me. Two very different things, to me at least.
