Title: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: Der Golem on 31 Dec 2010, 05:33
I know some of you make music, I've heard and enjoyed tracks by a few forumites before, JC, Pat and Khar at least. But I saw no place for sharing/shameless self promoting, thus this thread. So post some links, talk about your own and preferrably each others music as well.

I play in a doom metal outfit myself, called Hylur. We recently uploaded a track called Heed No Warning, off an EP in the making. We've gone to a studio before and been pretty dissatisfied with the result, so we chose to record our EP all live in our rehearsal space, except for the vocals. You can listen to it here; http://www.reverbnation.com/hylur

Your turn

I myself am in a desert rock/jazz/funk band/musical project known as Minimal Effect. It's lo-fi since we're broke students and have almost no money for new equipment, but we've had a pretty positive response so far. Below is our youtube channel.

All my musical projects with material extant are either defunct or on indefinite hiatus. At some point in the new year I hope to return to making music (probably under a new name), but the problem I'm having at the moment is that my songwriting is slipping somewhat ahead of my ability. I need to pick up the guitar again.

My projects which actually have released things:

Halo of Flies (http://www.myspace.com/haloofflies)

Halo of Flies is/was my main musical project. When it started I didn't really know much about electronic music and mostly wanted to make stuff that sounded like Burzum's keyboard albums, plus some EBM influence. As it developed I picked up elements of my own style and became more influenced by early industrial music, and particularly Coil. Most (but not all) of the music was made in FL studio and Audacity, with lots of sampling from movies and computer games. I've become disillusioned with the project largely because of a) conflicts and confusions with the punk band Halo of Flies, whose existence I was not aware of when I named the project. The band/their record label and their fans have been generally complete arseholes towards me, trying to hijack my myspace account, remove my music from last.fm and so on. b) I have a clear idea in my head about what Halo of Flies should be and sound like and I'm not sure I can really do anything more with that sound and visual aesthetic. c) I lost all the material I'd been working on for the next LP, Radio Crowley, in a hard drive crash. Then I lost a load more material when my laptop got fucked. You can download the whole of the two full lengths albums from last.fm though the quality is not best:

The Blasted Heath (http://www.last.fm/music/Halo+Of+Flies/The+Blasted+Heath)

World War Zero (http://www.last.fm/music/Halo+Of+Flies/World+War+Zero)

I think there's also some tracks f


Death Throes (http://www.myspace.com/deaththroes)

Death Throes is a sort of deliberately offensive, noisey slightly grindy thing that I used basically as a repository for all the really overt nastiness and borderline stupidity I wanted to keep out of Halo of Flies. Unfortunately myspace deleted the best track for no reason and last.fm have lost the mp3 files as well so what is on the myspace is essentially all that remains. So it goes.

Ill Met by Moonlight (http://www.myspace.com/illmetbymoonlightmusic)

My first stab at neo-folk. Recorded one demo whilst I was at school then nothing. Enormously hampered by my almost total inability to play the guitar, flute, harmonica or drums, write conventional songs or indeed sing.

Le Morte D'Arthur (http://www.myspace.com/lemorted39arthur)

My second genred post-industrial band. This time much more slanted towards a martial industrial direction. Again released one demo and then nothing happened.

I record with pretty much any instrument I can get my hands on, but I play live shows with just an ukulele, and a microphone running through a Line 6 DL4 and Holy Grail reverb.

I used to play in a joke-y metalcore band, before that I played with an unironic metalcore band.

Now I'm singing and playing guitar for an acousticky thing - all we have right now is a myspace but we'll get music up on our page eventually.

If anyone's interested I can also throw some stuff up on MF.

I am in a band called Feeling Gravitys Pull (http://feelinggravityspull.bandcamp.com/). We play rock musics not entirely unsounding like REM, Neil Young, SKWM, Mission of Burma, et al. The EP on the site is a recording I did myself in March of last year before the actual band convened.

Everyone's making music!

Lummer, I dig the riffage on Armoured Worms. The grindy tracks don't grab me as much. You program the drums yourself, right?

Khar, Le Morte D'Arthur I had not heard before, but I like it, will listen to again. Also, you don't speak highly of Ill met..., but I still spin some tracks off the demo when I am in the mood for some bleak folk.

I though I would like Minimal Effect based on the description, but it really isn't for me.

The rest of you I still haven't listened to, working on it.

allow me to remedy this terrible oversight


for a couple of weeks about a year or two ago, I started making shitty (reaaally shitty) electronic music using a god awful free program that I didn't understand. I don't know jack shit about music and I'm an idiot, so this is what happens when a tone-deaf moron with a lot of heart trys to make music:

yes, I know i spelled tyrannosaurus wrong. that's kind of the entier point: i'm an idiot

That said, my roomate is a musical genius and me and him want to start making music but we're lazy and don't have the necessary equipment yet. maybe someday we'll put our (his) genius to tape or something but don't hold your breath

anyone know what it means when you try to add a song to iTunes and instead of saying "itunes can't import this jive bullshit for reason x" it just does...nothing?

i've never seen it do that before and i'd really like to listen to my shitty jams, if possible. it's been a while.

unfortunately, i have a bootlegged and unregistered version of sibelius, so not at the moment. when i got back to school though they have real copies that i can use to export it. ill post a better version there. ideally i'd like a mp3 of it being played on piano but i cant play it and at my schools comp recital where it was "debued" i couldn't find a good enough pianist so it was butchered. so god knows when it'll actually be played again.

I know I'm a lil' late and all, I thought I'd share some stuff. There's this (http://soundcloud.com/edwardridge/he-will), which features a crazy Reverend, and this (http://soundcloud.com/edwardridge/02-document), which doesn't. I suck at describing my own music, but it's a mix of 'real' sounds (pianos, organs etc) and electronic sounds. The first one I linked to was an experiment to see if I could pound out one chord for an entire song. It sort of does.

Primary Tones
I wrote and recorded a six-song-EP on Garageband over the summer with friends, it's like punk-literate stuff.  Like Dave Eggers meets Jets To Brazil or whatever.  It's available on bandcamp right here: http://primarytones.bandcamp.com

Fireworks For Luna
I'm also in a band with this guy who wants to be both Converge and Isis at the same time.  I wasn't able to record with them on their first release, but joined shortly afterward.  I think he wants to change the band name, as well, which I'm bummed about.  The first release is available here, though: http://myspace.com/fireworksforluna


I'm also in a math rock band that has no name and only one song so far.  So, there's that.

You would probably be better off being a pop-punk band because every slack-brained hipster wankstain and his haircut wants to be the next Isis/Converge/Whatever record Southern Lord sent Pitchfork to review for free last month.

Is that popular? My inkling was that they lost their finger on the pulse of the fickle beard-rock zeitgeist when Wolves in the Throne Room managed to somehow gather critical acclaim without inspiring practically anyone to listen to any other USBM.
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: ALoveSupreme on 09 Jan 2011, 18:23
calling that pop-punk does not seem to register in any way that would make some sort of sense, but neither is calling it converge/isis-esque.  C'mon, guys!

Also, does Primary Tones have two drummers and two bassists? Very Saddle Creek - 2002-ish to my ear, but I think this is the thread where everyone classifies everything poorly so maybe I am guilty as well.
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: leftandleaving on 09 Jan 2011, 22:26
Sean -- Yeahh, Fireworks For Luna formed 2 years ago, but we only played a few shows last year.  Primary Tones, however, formed last year and we haven't gotten past the practice-in-the-basement-forever mode that comes with starting a band.

Also, in regards to Fireworks For Luna: I guess I should've noted that he WANTS the music to be Isis/Convergely, but that's certainly not how it turned out.  Not that it was written to sound that way, either.  Regardless, I like how it sounds and I certainly hear the pop-punk vibe, even if I disagree with that appraisal.

And on the Primary Tones recording, I received help from a host of different musicians for different songs (including a few different bassists and drummers), but the actual core band is only a three-piece.  I've just always wanted to pretend I have an orchestra at a whim, so I do what I can to maintain a healthy delusion.  Also, being compared to 2002-era Saddle Creek is totally great -- I've got some serious love for Desaparecidos and Ugly Organ-era Cursive.


Also, checking out some of these links: Khar, I'm liking the literary-themed album titles.  I named my band, Primary Tones, after a line in the same Lovecraft story that I'm assuming you named The Blasted Heath after.  Pretty great stuff.
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: KharBevNor on 10 Jan 2011, 00:01
Actually the specific reference of the title of The Blasted Heath is Shakespeare's Macbeth, which Lovecraft makes some reference to himself in The Colour Out of Space. There's another reference to Shakespeare on the same albuim, 'The Close Contriver of All Harms', which is a description of Hecate. There is, however, a direct Lovecraft reference on World War Zero, 'A Plain Discourse of Evil Powers', which comes from the pseudo-archaic sermon against the strange noises in the hills quoted in The Dunwich Horror, and was originally going to be the first track on an EP called 'The Dunwich Horror' with the tracks named something like: A Plain Discourse of Evil Powers, None Presided at His Coming, Rhythmical Crescendos of Unholy Anticipation, The Dunwich Horror. One of my many projects that fell by the wayside.

I've been playing music off and on for a while, not really doing much recording. But I just made a demo of a folky song I'm working on for a friend, and would love to hear what people think. The recording was (very clearly once you listen) done in one take on my computer, but hopefully I'll be able to do some higher quality recordings soon, with more than just my crummy voice and a banjo.

I fee like it's popular. Maybe it's just the circles I move in but it seems everywhere I look it's Black Breath this, Trap Them that, Circle the Wagons the other.

Southern Lord definitely aren't the apex of the beardocracy anymore, though, for sure. I'm pretty sure that garland goes to Seasons of Mist these days.

Profound Lore, dude. Profound Lore.
Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Profound Lore ends up pretty big this decade. They have been getting a lot of rising bands, along with a few with decently big names among metal circles. I've gotten three albums from them since the end of November, and there are a bunch of artists I'm interested in on it that I haven't gotten a chance to listen to much of.

Their signing Agalloch (yes, I know that they did the vinyl release of at least The Mantle) makes me kind of wonder if they are hoping to follow in the footsteps of The End. Sculptured was one of the first, if not the first, artists The End signed, and I'm pretty sure that Agalloch was a decent part of what got The End on its feet.

Thanks for the encouragement, but no - you REALLY don't want to hear this. I was just fucking around and figured I'd hit record instead of just jamming to the backing track playback. For one thing, it's extra-horrible because I got the mix wrong - my guitar is way too loud.

Shit, most people don't even want to hear GOOD blues, by talented musicians. And trust me, I'm not getting down on myself or fishing for compliments. I'm just tellin' it like it is. I'll post something sometime, just not this one.

dude no fuck being self conscious about music. even when actually composing and im writing down my ideas, the best ideas come from long jams/tangents. granted, usually i send a lot of time picking apart those jams and deciding what is good or not, i get most of my best musical ideas when im just jamming out to some random ass thing. really its how its done! you can know 200 things about music but the best ideas come from just jammin out.

seriously take for example the piano piece i posted earlier in this thread. the opening bars, that simple little idea, came from just jamming out and then developing even more jams on that simple idea. it is all motherfucking about lil jams.

at the end of the day if you are self conscious exchange ideas and bounce them off people. they will tell you which ones are good and which ones are not. it will make you a better musician.

So a bunch of you know that I'm in a black metal band. I spent all day today doing the vocal tracks for our almost finished EP. I figure there are enough of you who appreciate metal that I should be able to get some good reactions.

Have a listen, tell me what you guys think. Feel free to mention it but I'm already aware that there is little to no bass in the mix, that's because it is not recorded yet. Not in full anyway. The drums are sloppy, they were rushed and we're going to redo them. There are a couple of guitar fills that need to be reworked and we might do some more vocal work when we work on the next two tracks. All that said, I'm really proud of my work on these. I present to you The Corinthian, Four is the Presage of Death and Ihn Fur Noh by Isgahaatt.

You want variable-quality music? You've got variable-quality music!

The Bandcamp Page (http://autosuggestion.bandcamp.com/)
The Myspace Page (http://myspace.com/autosuggestionband/)

The gauntlet is DOWN.

P.S. We have better material, but it's essentially in cold storage. I'll dig some of it up over the weekend. Do something with it.

P.P.S. I'm actually quite proud of "Happy Happy Happy Happy".

Will likely record an EP with my friend in the very, very near future. Not the guy I play Beatles covers with, but another friend of mine.

ETA: I will submit that Bandcamp.com, Soundcloud.com and Box.net all have their own little in-browser mini players (not all of which have their own volume controls, so be prepared for that!). It saves your new audience a step on the way from 'clicking mouse' to 'hearing sounds,' which makes for very immediate promotion of your music online. Some downsides, such as factors relating to bandwidth or storage capacity or maximum file size will apply, but I am far too lazy to Google that shit and make a comparison chart.

Big time lurker here...

I used to post some back like 3 years ago, maybe someone remembers me?  If not, whatever.

If anyone is interested, here is some pretty simple electronic type music that is mostly garage band loops.
http://www.mediafire.com/?0lxqbej3jsq

I know, not the pinnacle of musical creativity, but I'm proud of it.

Like I said, a lot of it is the loops in Garage Band, but some of the drum tracks I made myself and some of the synth I made myself.

That's right, Good Feels does. (http://www.box.net/shared/jqx01xrrg4) Song's called "A.H" and it is about a girl who is super enticing but not really worth any effort whatsoever. We wrote that in two hours this morning. Recorded this draft in a single take on Kabir's iPhone. He's finishing up the lyrics and we'll be recording a final of it in about two weeks.

Look up the Glyn Johns method of recording drums. All you need is a single overhead and a dedicated kick drum mic. Two overheads and a dedicated kick is even better.

Look up the Glyn Johns method of recording drums. All you need is a single overhead and a dedicated kick drum mic. Two overheads and a dedicated kick is even better.

Actually the "Glyn Johns" technique just refers to the placement of yr two (always two) overheads, being placed directly in front and over the floor tom, like so:

(http://danalexanderaudio.com/Micpics/glynjohn/frontview.jpg)

and doesn't really imply anything else. You can use Glyn Johns technique with as many, or as few, close mics as you want. It is a pretty cool technique nonetheless, and I use it more often for recording than not.

That being said, the spirit of Patrick's post still rings true, you can get a fantastic drum sound from just two overheads and a kick mic, as long as you're careful with yr placement. I wouldn't use less than two o/h mics though, unless you want a very boring, static sounding recording with no stereo seperation.

It's definitely one of our weirder songs, but it also features some of the interior album art you will find if you buy the CD. This is personally my lest favourite song off the album, but I'm curious to know what others think. Please let me know, as I would greatly appreciate it.

Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: Patrick on 24 Feb 2011, 02:23
Dovey, that's definitely fair, although if you can't get full-on stereo separation due to a single o/h and a single kick, you could always just pan vocals a little bit one way and drums a little bit the other way. Doesn't make it perfect, but it helps a lot.

If all you've got is two mics, you'll HAVE to have a dedicated kick. There's just no other option really, if you don't you're gonna have nothing in that department. Just raise your o/h higher and make it hotter.

But that chord thing I was texting you about last night, that'll be the newest Havlicek Stole The Ball! track by the end of the week.

Guys, can I ask a little advice? I've got this in two parts now..the first bit starts off Am, C, Em/G, and the second bit goes into D, C, Em/G, but I feel like it needs more and I don't know where to go from there?

Side note: It's all capo 5, mostly appregiated, and clean. Also, this is where I needed to pay better attention in theory..what fucking key am I in?
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: ALoveSupreme on 24 Feb 2011, 06:41
It sounds like you're in Am/Cmaj (or rather Dm/Fmaj given your capo).

The Dmaj chord just augments the 6th tone of the scale (if you're thinking in terms of Am and forgetting you're capoed).  Or, if you're in the major key I mentioned (Cmaj), the "D" chord is a V/V which is a chord that could help you modulate into Gmaj.  Maybe this part you're writing could be a bridge to a chorus in G?

Basically the "D" chord will sound cool (try making it a D7, I've been playing with that lately) if you're in Amin.  And technically with your capo it sounds like you're in Dmin.

Post by: ALoveSupreme on 24 Feb 2011, 13:49
Actually, after looking at the chord progression again, the argument could be made that it is in G the whole time and just starts on the ii chord (Am)...  I guess it depends on what you do with the melody...
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: sean on 24 Feb 2011, 13:53
nah, i think it starts in a minor. i mean, playing it out loud just as 3 note chords it wants to go back to a major, but you could easily get it to go back to g. actually, i guess its kind of an a dorian thing.

Well, I guess it must've been some other shitty metalcore band, then.

Yeah!  I live in College Park, my band at the time was centralized in Frederick, so we mostly played shows in that whole Western-Maryland area.

Regardless, we had a really weird time in Shepherdstown; the whole place kind of freaked me out.  We arrived at the train 2 hours before we were scheduled to play (we were first in the line-up) and there was nobody there... The venue was locked.  So we went to a little cafe closer to campus where I was hit on by an attractive waitress.  On the way back to the venue, some dude tried to pick a fight with my band's bassist for no reason.  Then, the only news reporter in the town told us about how his last story was about a missing turtle and how our predicament could be his next big article.

We got back to the venue 20 minutes before we were scheduled to go on and they were just setting up.  We played, nearly half the crowd left to smoke outside and the rest of the bands were some denomination of -core.  Oh, and it rained the whole time.

You could go back to G. After that, try playing F, and after that I have no other suggestions that wouldn't be obvious.

I did this, sort of. Since I was going back and forth with Em/G (which already has that G) and plain ol' E minor, I ended up climbing the ladder and going Em, F, Em/G. With how I'm actually playing it, a normal G seemed a bit too chimey and bright.

I need to work out one last bit this afternoon, but I'll get it recorded and upload it for you guys soon.

(psssssssssst shane im gonna tell you a secret)

(em/G is just an e minor chord in first inversion. i mean, an eminor chord is e, g, b. all thats done differently is that g is thrown in the bass, not e. so it's still e minor. THE MORE YOU KNOW!)

Quote
I wanna see your name in the headlines
with a lede that says, "He said, 'She said she wouldn't be mine.'"
And up above the eight-point uppercase byline
there's a picture of me, and I'm being led outside

You've been awfully quiet since he came around
but I'm keeping tabs on you, got my ear to the ground,
and what I hear is you're the talk of the town
but I knew that already. I'm keeping my ears to the ground.
His lips are lavish with yr praise, he seems
totally sincere and you are kind of amazed he
hasn't gone ghost like Swayze;
in fact, his permanence is driving me kinda crazy.

Was Regina too cold for you to handle last night?
Did you find someone who would give you a light
and a hand, and some words, and a ride, and a kiss?
You know, it's moments like this that I'm gonna miss.
And every step past an alleyway's a step that I fear,
'Cause every sound is your name, and it's the last name I wanna hear –
But at the same time, I could go on hearing it all night.

There's something kinda crazy about it;
Yeah, I think I'm in love. No, I wouldn't even doubt it –
wanna go up to the rooftops and shout it.
And if I can't live with it, he can live without it.
It's Sunday night, there's nothing to do. I better
pour myself a stiff drink and get some pictures of you.
And what you're feeling is the turn of the screw;
I'm not sure if I'm tight enough but, hey, I think it'll do.

Was Regina too cold for you to handle last night?

I read about the evils of drinking, so I quit
reading
And when I saw your name made the phone start ringing
I picked it up, said "I'm gonna miss you" without even thinking
Of anything except his cum on your sheets
And when you asked what was wrong I had to lie through my teeth,
you said I sounded so fatalistic well
I'll show you fatalistic

Beatles cover. Recorded vocals in the bathroom for the first time ever, and I loved the result. And I recorded the lead vocal part twice. Lots of testing shit out that I haven't done before, and I'm liking how it's working out. Now if I could just stop sucking at balancing instruments and vocals, and I'll be set.

Also if I were less off in my pitch that'd be lovely too.

Thank you, sir.  As a fellow Arizonan, you are one of the few QC fans that actually has an opportunity to check this band out.  (I believe you went a few years ago to see my other band, Thankful Birds, who also have a disk coming out this year).  If anybody is looking to check out the flavor of the tracks without sitting through a half an hour (lazy asses) please try "Tied,"it's easily my favorite track to play.

So this weekend my band the Seedheads is finally recording again (the first time we tried to record the tracks were accidentally deleted in the mixing process due to computer troubles), this time in kindof a fancy studio for free! Hopefully it'll be enough for an EP. *crosses fingers* We made live demos of some our song and sent them to our producer so he's not coming blind into the recording session like in the past. They don't sound the best but I think they're  pretty good for being recorded with two shitty microphones in a drum practice room. Our bassist suggested putting them up on the net anyway, so here they are:

I make music sometimes, usually with a guitar and then I process it and add processed field recordings into the mix. This is a piece called "Widow's Walk," it's the first one I've ever shared publicly. It is named for these little rooftop platforms on some houses in coastal New England and the idea is the wives of sailors would go up to these platforms when the fishing/whaling ships were meant to return to port. Often the women would learn from these small spaces that they were widows because they would see that the ship their husband had left on was not returning. The field recordings in this piece are largely taken from two different widow's walks on Nantucket off the coast of Massachusetts. The guitar was recorded on the island as well.

Okay so Kabir and I have hella shit recorded, he's just being a ween0r of a perfectionist about everything, so the stuff we recorded isn't "ready" or some shit. However, I do have this cover of Elliott Smith's "Waltz #2" (http://soundcloud.com/kimjongsick/waltz-2) if it will help tide you over

I did this in about 90 minutes, the only "effects processing" I did was EQ and pan. I didn't do anything exceptionally unique or interesting with the song, it's a pretty straight cover, but hopefully you like it. I didn't master it super loud because I like things with *oMg DyNaMiCs* and stuff so you might just wanna turn your shit up.

Hey I guess it's appropriate for me to talk about this here? One of my class projects was to develop an 'outdoor gaming experience'. We kind of threw that out of the window and instead made a sonic landscape on Arthur's Seat which you could listen to by using your phone and walking around, and depending on your location specific music would get played out to you.

It was all ambient stuff, I built the app, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. On the presentation day we got about 30 people to come to the place and try it out, and you could hear all the music everyone was making when they were walking around, it was really kind of neat.

Sometimes you can go straight from your amp to PC if you have the right outputs on your amp and inputs on your computer, but it's not exactly the best mode of recording.

A belligerent drunk in Edinburgh on Hogmanay. Do I get style points?

Guys we're gonna record vocals for a bitchin' new jam this morning, but it's not done. I want you to know, though, that I'm really pleased with how the song has turned out so far, and that I'm really proud of my bass work especially. I'll try to squeeze a demo of the track outta my bandmate once that's done.

Also, a new, less sloppy bass track is going onto 'Headband Dream' which I posted a week or two ago. The honors are mine, hoping it turns out well.

My band has nearly completed a bunch of the songs for the upcoming album. Unfortunately they are not all done yet. Some more noticeably so than others. Here be updated versions (http://soundcloud.com/kimjongsick/sets/injun-magic-unfinished-demo) of the songs that we have. Sadly "Headband Dream" needed the entire chorus to be redone, but we left all the artifacts from the previous recording of the vox. It's gonna sound cool as fuck when we're done. Just gotta... get there first.

By all means, give us feedback on anything you hear!

I'm slowly making my through this thread, checking out each of your recordings. I have to say so far I'm fairly impressed. I promise I wouldn't ask you to listen to my music if I weren't willing to listen to all of yours, so I am doing that, but I thought I'd go ahead and throw up my music page (http://www.facebook.com/WilliamRWight) so you can (hopefully) enjoy my tracks while I enjoy yours. At the moment I only have three songs up. They're acoustic tracks with a range from folk ballad to acoustic rock-ish, but all more or less acoustic singer/songwriter stuff.

Also, it's the epitome of low budget recording (a Motorola Droid with these (http://www.skullcandy.com/shop/2011-ink-d-green-black-micd.html) recorded all sounds, then dumped to the laptop where I mixed it with Audacity), so I apologize for the sound quality.

Anyway, enjoy.

Rob

EDIT: Having made it through the majority of music, listening to at least a track or two from each person/group, I thought I'd give my opinions (mostly vague generalities)

Sean, I have to say the two tracks you posted are fantastic. I would love to hear them performed. I know you said the only recording you had of "As Of Right Now" got botched up pretty bad, but if you do ever get some recordings, I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking that would be fantastic.

As to everyone else, I won't go into specifics on each of your work, but I can say the very good heavily outweighed the pretty good, and I can't think of any instances of bad music. Some were not to my taste, but I could still appreciate the art for what it was. This is a forum full of talented people. Hopefully this thread stays around for a while. I always love hearing about music from the people who actually make it.

Spoon. I dig the sound, but I would have to say, especially for the style, you could probably stand to move a bit more. It looked like you were restricted by a small stage, and I know you personally were restricted by needing a mic, those things can't be helped, but I was trying to find a video of a band back home K-1 Royal from Bristol TN. I can't, but they were the shining example (IMHO) of what a pop punk band should be. They sounded incredible live and knew when to really let loose on stage. That comment was fairly pointless without actually having anything to show you though.

But seriously, the music was good, and I'm guessing a lot of your presence was a result of not having much room. At small venues though, don't be afraid to get out into the crowd or push the crowd back a little, unless the management frowns on that.

Keep posting videos though, I enjoyed that one. I look forward to seeing more.
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: spoon_of_grimbo on 29 Jun 2011, 05:09
thanks for the feedback, i have to agree, i'm still getting used to the whole singing-while-playing thing - i used to throw myself around the stage quite a bit with some of my old bands, but any bands i've been in where i've done anything more than the odd backing vocal never got outside the practice room, so it's sorta new to me.  i'll work on it though!

we actually played a gig in the same pub last night - as we were the only band on (and with no popular headliner to draw in the crowds), we had fewer amps, far more stage room, and the kinda relaxed atmosphere (read: mostly empty venue haha!) that sorta led itself to a lot of jokey stage-banter, jumping around, and general tomfoolery!  it's starting to come a bit more naturally i think, but i can't tell you how much fun it is to actually be playing live again after years of not doing so   :-D
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: wrwight on 29 Jun 2011, 16:36
Awesome. I know what you mean about that last part. I still don't have a band, but I've been playing acoustic at a local open mic for a little while now, and I'm starting to finally loosen up and enjoy it. I don't really like the way they mix my guitar, and I tried bringing my own amp, but then they just mix it funny too, so I kind of gave up on ever being able to hear myself play, but I still try to enjoy it, and people are starting to like it, even my originals, so I guess I'm doing something right.

I still wish I could put together a band though. Being a vocalist is probably the most fun I've ever had, and when people I've never met are singing along to the words I wrote, it's the most gratifying feeling in the world.

Anyway, so this post isn't purely nostalgic:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqu2dRwwkks

I recorded and uploaded this the day I wrote the song, so it's kind of sloppy, but so far it's still the best one I have of this song.

If you're not satisfied with the sound you hear in the monitor, tell them! It's their job and they should do it right. The mix onstage isn't SUPPOSED to be the same as it is in the mains, because the onstage mix is for making sure your shit's audible so that your singing pitch is correct. Let the folks know! Be sure to listen to them when they talk about feedback issues with the system, but don't be afraid to let 'em know you need it differently.
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: wrwight on 30 Jun 2011, 15:27
Oh, I'm no stranger to the idea of live sound. I've been doing this a while. It's difficult to get what you want out of some venues though. If I were playing a show, then yeah, I'd be more adamant about hearing things my way on stage, but since it's just open mic, I don't want to be "that guy" that comes to open mic and harasses the guy running it because my stuff doesn't sound perfect. That was my whole reason for buying the amp in the first place, aside from just wanting one, was so I could have a monitor, since they mix out a lot of the mids in my guitar, which I think makes it worthless as a monitor. I don't know really how it sounds in the mains, but it probably sounds alright, since most of the other acts sound fine. It's usually not too much of an issue, since I play acoustic, so I always have at least a little bit of natural sound to go off of.

But yeah, if I ever play an actual show, not open mic, I'll be more particular during sound check to get the sound that I want on stage. For open mic, it's just not that big a deal to me, as long as I can hear enough to sing on key.

We played outside at a pub as support band to a Foo Fighters tribute band on friday night.  We weren't billed on the posters at all, and figured we'd get hounded out of the place by locals expecting nothing but Grohl-centric tunage.  Instead, we got a pretty good reaction, and people seemed really into it, including one 50-something guy who compared us to Slipknot (for reference here, we play pop-punk...)!  So yeah, here's a video of one of our songs, which has the amazingly original title of "New One." (http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10150318686441061&oid=155250761192800) Please excuse my horrifically out of key vocals...

Though this isn't my band, my dear friend has been putting out some good metalcore or whatever you call it music and has been asking me for feedback. I love what I've heard and think it's a shame they aren't more popular, but I know very little about this genre of music. So if metal is your cup of tea, and you're willing to give advice to a fledgling band, check it out. Sorry for it being myspace, they haven't set up an easy download place outside of social networks and myspace is more accessible.

Yeah, even the closest of those is several hours away from me, unfortunately. It's been a while since I've been to a good show. I don't know, maybe I'll make a trip out of it.

Göttingen is only three and a half hours, but I have to work that night, unfortunately. It would normally have been my day off too, but I had to switch shifts. The next closest is probably Chemnitz at like 5 hours, so I don't know. It would be a good excuse to get out of town. I'm only in Europe for a limited time. I need to get out and see it while I'm here.

Having listened to a fuckload of Kid Dynamite, it occurred to me and my bandmates that it'd be fun to write one of those 20 second melodic hardcore songs that gets in, punches you in the nuts/ovaries (we're an equal opportunities band!) and gets out before you really know what's happened.  After all, why write a 4 minute song people will play once, when you can write a short one devoid of repetition that'll make people reach for the repeat button.  

I don't know that we've actually been successful in this instance, and frankly given the rough recording quality (blackberry phone laid on the floor in the middle of the practice room, set to record video) it's fairly hard to tell, but you can just about hear the gist of it.

I present to you, "D.F.N." (http://youtu.be/vL9mfTSoerg) (a.k.a. "Dirty Filthy Nonce"), a song written about a teacher from our old school who was found with 8000 indecent photographs of children on his harddrive.

hey all, let's just say I've been hanging around this forum for a while. Decided to share my project with you all since I've become a fan of many artists through indirect recommendations from this site. It's a genre hopping, ear popping group called Kamikaze Ambulance. Here is a link, download is free, atleast check it out. http://kamikazeambulance.bandcamp.com/

Hey KMKZAMBULANCIA I am kind of digging this. The recording's a little crisp. But that works for this.

In other news I have just about 8 million shows booked.

i really like that, Chad - the instrumental parts reminded me of the "calm before the storm" parts in 90s screamo songs, really atmospheric.  your vocalist has a pretty distinctive voice too, she reminds me of someone, though i can't think who...
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: Chad K. on 22 Sep 2011, 07:10
Thanks.  We definitely have some 90's emo influences from bands like Sunny Day Real Estate and Mineral.  We normally hear our singer sounds a little like Natalie Merchant crossed with Beth Orton, which I think is a fairly apt comparison.

I checked out the Godamnits.  I liked it.  It reminds me of some of the Fat Wreck bands like Lagwagon and No Use For A Name.  Very cool stuff.

Here is a video of my band The Goddamnits covering Dear Landlord's "Three to the Beach." (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmBBMN8mTd4)

This is at a gig in Norwich the other night.  It was a good laugh, although we didn't soundcheck and the levels were a bit wonky all night (and I didn't help matters by being almost allergic to singing in key for most of our set  :S ).  Still, it doesn't sound the worst ever.  If you listen through headphones it sounds okay (I think at this point in the set we hadn't realised that the guitar and bass amps needed turning up a LOT).

@Chad, I will, thanks man! I'm still a hair uncomfortable about overall quality, there's still mic pop everywhere, but we'll get that sorted in future recordings.

@Dan, that video sounds pretty damn alright to me. I dig the hell out of it.

Post by: spoon_of_grimbo on 05 Oct 2011, 18:39
Thanks man!  We've got a few new original songs, one in particular that I really wanna get a decent recording of (we are in talks with a mate a coupla hours' drive away who might be recording us soon though!), so hopefully there'll be more up soon, even if it's literally just a video recording from band practice.

Just listening to the Injun Magic tracks - really liking them, you guys sound like a chilled out Braid, awesome night-time music (as I type this, it's dark and pissing it down with rain here).  I'm repping your bad selves on facebook now, you got any more recordings other than these two?
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: Patrick on 12 Oct 2011, 11:35
Sorry for the late reply, Dan. I appreciate the reppin' and the kind words! We've got other recordings, but they're either unfinished or in post-production. The problem with the latter being that the guy we had doing it managed to get his computer stolen. Fuuuuuk.

Fortunately we still have all the raw tracks, and we're still waiting on that live recording (we might even release the damn thing as a live album) but I still have yet to hear from the guy who recorded it.

We're going into a proper studio omfg on 5 November (we'll remember to burn something in effigy, of course) and we'll get some older stuff recorded as well as some newer things we've been working on. Got a new song we're working out called "Slacker's Jaw" which I'm really excited about.

me too!  i converted the other guys to dear landlord with the sole purpose of covering that!  thankfully, they're all about anything with a bit of gang vocal action, so they were up for it immediately.

and yeah, that's a the new squier vintage jag.  thanks to delivery problems from the site i ordered it from, it arrived the day of the gig and i spent the preceeding hours frantically trying to break it in a bit (did manage to bargain a fairly hefty discount for my troubles though!). 

it sounds great and plays really nicely - i'd been put off squiers by my first bass (affinity p-bass), but having been told by a couple of reliable sources that squier basses are often better than the mexican fender ones (which are usually most people's first port of call when they see the price of the american fender models) and cheaper to boot, i tried one out and loved it.

I bought my first acoustic guitar from a friend the other day; should be a nice challenge as in the past, whenever I've played guitar rather than bass, I've relied on distortion to cover for my general sloppiness.  Also, I suck at any chords that aren't power chords.  And to top it all off, I have a sore throat.  So logically, I figured I'd try and cover a hardcore punk song all acoustically an' ting.  Here's my take on Paint It Black's "Memorial Day." (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDcAkVsN_hg)  Turns out it's kinda hard to make up vocal melodies for the shoutier bits.  Fun though, and I feel like it didn't turn out too bad.

If you were being sarcastic about the attitude, I fully understand it. I really should be better at keeping up, but our singer is a perpetual whirlwind basically.
He is without a doubt the most furiously ambitious and single-minded person I have ever met. He doesn't really have a life like normal people. He lives at home (he's 23), is single and he works for his dad's company so he can take time off any time he wants. He has never really understood how things work for people with real jobs, and actual commitments like rent, bills, relationships, making sure the cat at home is watered and fed, all that stuff.

But regardless, he gets shit moving. We're really going places with this, considering how niche the music is.

And thanks for the kind words!

My friend Jo has a band called Sticklips. I posted some of her stuff here before. Here are two new, full band tracks she recorded in studio. It's strange hearing her like this since 99% of the time that she performs, it's just her and an acoustic guitar. Somehow - maybe because I'm more used to it - I like those stripped down versions more. But she's a really talented songwriter and lyricist and singer so these are well worth a listen: http://sticklips.bandcamp.com/

I've posted some of my stuff here before. Basically, what I'm doing musically has morphed over the last four years from industrial-sorta rock to something like New Wave and 80s rock/pop. Maybe some alternative rock thrown in. I'm not really sure.

I've been on Bandcamp for a while now, and although I like their setup, people continually complain to me about the lack of a volume control. I decided to just give all my music away, if that means getting more people to listen to it. So, if you're into that sort of thing, you can download every single track I've ever released at www.ianmarquismusic.com (http://ianmarquis.bandcamp.com) by clicking "Buy Now on an album page and entering 0 for the cost. The newest album is the best, to my ears, but some people liked the first two as well.

I'm in two bands at the moment (with some overlap in members).

The main focus is on The Lazarus Sign. A 3 man doom/sludge metal band, but we don't have anything on record yet as we are still working on material and trying to really get a grasp on playing in the genre. First few songs are practically ready though, so we're going to practise a lot to get them up to stage performance level.

The second is No Articles, a fun cover band of punk and rock bands like Greenday, Rancid, Foo Fighters, etc.

Recording Guitar/bass/drum machine/sequences and vocals all live. This is the part where I get nervous. Been totally cranked up with work to do at my day job.

Also our do-or-die effort to record a CD was somewhat thwarted because my ace bass player was injured in an auto accident just as I arrived in the City. We just heard she'll need surgery on her right wrist. At least 2 months time off. I tracked my part of 12 songs but my heart/head was not all there.

Post by: Lummer on 02 Mar 2012, 05:52
Thanks for the kind words Patrick :)

Just gonna copypaste what I said on the Bareknuckle Pickups forum, where I summed it up pretty much:

Quote
I got asked to leave, because I didn't value the touring aspect enough, so it was done politely enough, but the end result is still the same :p

I was going on about how we should really put writing new material as a priority, instead of doing more and more tours on the old material from the EP. Going an entire year plus a few months with only one new song ready seems a bit silly to me. They have a Russia tour lined up in April, and a MONTH AND ONE WEEK LONG TOUR WITH NO DAYS OFF AT ALL in the summer, plus a whole bucketload of weekenders in between. Plus probably some other stuff in between. All that will be on the back of the same 5-6 songs we've had for almost a year now. But apparently that's just how it's supposed to be, and now they've booted the main songwriter (riffs, that is... I take no responsibilty for the lyrics) so yeah, good luck with that.

Of course, there was the fact that I've hated the singer's guts from day one, and that in turn made me unnecessarily grumpy and cantankerous while out on tour. Of course, it's not fair that the others, who are great guys, and people at the venues have to put up with the "mr. Hyde" version of me just because one guy gets on my nerves.

________

It did come very much out of the blue for me, seeing as I'm conceited enough to think I was indispensable. I mean, I wrote all the riffs! A large part of the reason we were so well received, and the reviews were so good, was because of what I contributed via writing the music. It sounds egomaniacal (because, well, it is) but that's how I felt. But in the end everyone's replaceable once the songs are written.

________

(On being asked "What now!?"

Yeah, I'm gonna start a new band ASAP, since I love playing in a band. However, this one will be a bit more on my terms. I am tinkering with the idea of starting from scratch, assuming the role of "Band Captain" and pushing it forward from there. However, I'll do it without the callousness of my old vocalist and his relentless ambition.
Each two bands I've been in recently have taught me lessons:

Hexis has taught me, that if you run your band like your own little kingdom, and basically just disregard the sentiments of the band members, you will run the thing into the ground. I am 110% sure that Hexis will fall apart pretty soon, simply because I don't think anyone keep up with the pace set by the vocalist forever.

The death metal band me and Madsakre had, had a lot of potential and some truly great material, but we were just too fucking lazy and unfocused, so it just fizzled out and never got anywhere. At all. So the lesson learned there, was that you've got to work at it or else it just falls apart.
Also, me and Mads didn't really agree on which direction to take, since I wanted to do all this experimental, arty-farty bullshit and he just wanted to do some rockin', straight up swe-death with a healthy dash of D-beat. 
However, seeing as I've had more than my fair share of being pretentious and weird-for-the-sake-of-weird, and I've gotten so much more into oldschool death metal, crust punk and that sort of thing, I'm sure we'll see a lot more eye-to-eye if we bring that thing back from the tombs. So that's one option to go for, which I'd be very happy with.

Another idea I'm toying with, is something I've wanted for a while: A bass-less, one-guitar Grindcore/Powerviolence/Thrashcore  sort of thing. Kind of like Pig Destroyer trying to play Nasum and Discordance Axis type stuff but still throwing in the odd Nuclear Assault riff. This has the distinct advantage of only having to find a good drummer who can hammer out a mean blastbeat, and some solid, caveman d-beat. Vocals I can do myself, or maybe find a good vocalist.

In both instances, the tired old cliche of "Back to the roots" screams out. That said, I can't run from the fact that it's probably best to just play what comes naturally to me. In Hexis' little universe, I was always a bit of a stranger because I knew fuck all about that scene. I think I did a decent job, and I'm proud of the songs I wrote, but it still never really was really "me". It was more "me trying to do something that'll finally satisfy that control-freak of a vocalist with an unhealthy Celeste obsession".

Said straight off: Now I just wanna fuckin' tear shit up and stick to what works. I'll never be the guy who's gonna re-invent the wheel, so it will be refreshing to not have to try now.

Me and my best friend Mads are forging ahead, and forming a grind trio. Stoked. We have a drummer so we're good to go.

We have a drummer

Hella jealous, ours isn't flaky on gigs he says he'll play at but he can't play at a lot. Super fucking glad you are getting something going again though, and especially so soon. Back in the saddle like it weren't no shit.
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: Lummer on 15 Mar 2012, 03:26
We were actually pretty spoiled for choice on this, believe it or not.

About a week after I got the boot, we had a first trying-shit-out jam session, where we actually got a full* song written. That was with a really, really good drummer who had to bow out in time for the next rehearsal, due to having two other bands to juggle, so that was of course fair enough :)
He had a really unique style which would have made for something very interesting. He was/is immensely technically gifted, and could just as easily pull off complicated Jazz fills as he could do gravity blasts and other shenanigans. He is a bit out of practice currently, due to a long period of not drumming so much, so he didn't hit as hard as he once did. But hey, that stuff returns quickly for a dude as absurdly talented as him. He will be touring Europe with a band called Shaped Like Swans this summer, and his other grind band Piss Vortex (best name ever!) are going well ahead too. So yeah, no hard feelings for him backing out :) I'm just glad that he's busy playing again, since it would be a crying shame for someone so talented to not use it.

Now, the other guy I haven't heard play yet, but he has a pretty good pedigree. He's a longtime friend of the vocalist and I've met him a few times in the last few weeks. I like the guy! Solid, down-to-earth dude, and he's DEFINITELY into it  :-D
He's practically been begging to get to play some grind for quite a while now, since his current bands are standard-issue death metal. He's played with Konkhra and Panzerchrist, two well-recognised death metal bands in the scandinavian scene, as well as some others. The fact that he's played with Panzerchrist does show that he can play absurdly fast in any case, and that's good.
From what I know, he's not a very flashy drummer, at all, but that's pretty much what I've wanted. I want to do this thing as a seriously fast, pissed-off, stripped-down grind/powerviolence kind of thing with a solid dose of Death Metal in it too, so I think this guy will actually be better for that style.

*DISCLAIMER: "Full song" is in a Grindcore context here, so we're only talking 1 minute and 30 seconds, with 3 riffs. Not rocket science, though one of the riffs was pretty tech, and based on a fucked-up, odd-timed drumbeat the drummer came up with.

So, my new Grindcore band is forging ahead full speed (pun intended), but we're kind of torn between names. What do you guys think is best?

- Gestapolis
or
- Samaritan

Now, Gestapolis is the more overtly political "FUCK OPPRESSION ANCARHY 4 LIEF" one, but I'm not sure that will fit with the lyrical content all that well. Sure, we have some political stuff, but it's more satirical and sarcastic than sloganeering. We for instance have a deeply sarcastic song about how some people support charity only for the self-promotion (ie. most famous people, Bob Geldof, Live 8) and another that lambasts "Facebook Activism" like KONY2012, but we also have songs about other topics. We even have a "goregrind" song, albeit one that is a bit more realistic (short summary: "Dead people are pretty gross. Yuck. Ew.") and a song about being a real huge dick when you're drunk, so it's a far cry from what this sort of stuff normally is. That said, it's still a badass name, so it'll work.

Samaritan appeals to me, because the vocalist and I came up with it first, due to us thinking it would be cool to make a band that was more or less "posi-grind" with songs about self-improvement and being a good person and all that. Also, the name is atypical for a grind band.

So yeah... Wat do!?

Pat this sounds really great. It is hard to believe you've only written 2 songs. I wrote something this weekend that made me so sad I cried a lot and started drinking shots of really cheap vodka at 4 in the afternoon. I'm not sure if that is good or bad. It is a double-edged sword/slippery slope writing about your own life.

Well it is hell of bad recording. Wife records the bass+drum machine on her $20 mp3 player. She emails that to me and I play it back over the pc while singing over it on my phone. All this digital tech and I think a pair of tascam portastudios would sound better. :D But you cannot beat the immediacy of working over 500 miles apart like that. Anyway, not ready for prime time. 3rd album stuff. Not even in the demo stages. Isn't that what you hope, that something you are saying is universal enough to touch other people? Or maybe I'm just a big baby?

Well sometimes it is just 1 other person. O just finished read Le Freak, Nile Rodgers biog. While being almost completely raised by junkies, he grew up in an environment where he learned to be extremely technical as a musician. But he would over write parts. His long time partner (bassist) Bernard Edwards would listen and then promptly chop most of it out, making into something very palatable. I was recently talking to a guy I worked with in my first two bands. I guess you could say we were the two principal writers. But invariably we'd have something worked out to the nth degree, take it into my smokey basement and something very different came out of it. I work with only one person now. And frankly I get my nards handed to me on a regular basis. But now I'm tougher on myself than I ever would have been. In my personal first example, I didn't have to work with someone "better" than me. Just someone who wasn't me. :D In my latter example; well that's evolution.

Also 'thead'.

I tend to write super complicated pieces which are then scrapped in favour of like, I-IV-V-ish pieces that almost always sound 10x better (and also more fun to play, really - it's easier to get into the swing of enjoying music when you're not trying to be a wanker about it).
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: doombilly on 13 May 2012, 19:05
What I've found out about chord progressions...is don't write from them. If you want to force some math, do it melodically and forget about what chords are going on. The reason I, IV, and V are so "fun" to play has a lot more to do with our biology. Don't fight it. Don't feel like you have to suck it's #$%^ either. You can always figure out what chord/key changes are going on in the aftermath. I think it is a lot like getting good at odd meters (not that I am). If you can make ii-vii°-iii-V sound not out of place you are doing it right. Same goes for 12/8 or any odd meter.
My point is making an odd piece of music sound odd is really only for your own self enjoyment. Making an odd piece of music sound normal is bad-ass (IMHO).

Yeah, truth be told I doubt we'll make much selling music. Seems a hard life. But we've spend a LOT of money, not including medical bills to get this far. We recorded the 1st one ourselves but went to a pro for this one. I don't know. Everything else in my life has been a complete fuck up. This should follow the trend. :P Honestly I just want to sell some songs to asshole pop stars with money. Or smart film makers. Either/both.

Lemme get the ball rolling with Matt on the Kickstarter thing. Although we did talk about it on Saturday before the show, and he made a very good point by saying that it'd be a smarter business move to do strictly CD release first, then vinyl later. We're trying to have the Kickstarter cover mass-production and tour startup expenses, and given the overhead for vinyl, that just wouldn't be practical yet. We WILL press it to vinyl eventually though, assuming we're successful enough to make it happen, and I promise I will get you a copy.

Everything else in my life has been a complete fuck up. This should follow the trend.

Frankly I think you're being too hard on yourself, and unless you're an indiefolk musician, that ain't gonna sell records. :P

^ This is a really rough recording of a song I've sort of half-finished writing.  A combination of dead strings that need replacing, lack of a decent tuner, and my cack-handed inability to fret full barre-chords means the guitar sounds shite, but this would be intended as a full-band song anyway (and I'm just the bassist haha!).  A little bit more laid back than the stuff I usually write, but I think it turned out kind of okay.

That would not be our fanbase in any way at all, or us for that matter. I am assuming NF is short for National Front here, btw.

The name is first of all because it's got a ring to it, and second because it's an old Noisear song title. That way the crusties can tell from the get-go we're their kind of thing :P

Also, we're going to be provoking the fanatics on the left just as much as we're going to be talkin' dat smack about Fascism. We're all very left-leaning, but we're very much against fanaticism, which seems to run rampant in our scene.

Right Lumz. I assumed all of that, except the bit about being a song title because I obviously don't know much about this genre etc... It is always a fine line and one worthy of treading on to take something that can really set people off whether it be a symbol, or a phrase. I was once in a performance art troupe that used Thomas Pynchon's phrase from Gravity's Rainbow: The White Visitation, for our act. Our position was not too different from yours. But it sometimes can be hard to explain to the Gospel group going on after you at the Ayden, NC Collard Festival.   :angel:

Thanks Patrick. Yeah re: dissonance riffage... hmm probably the diminished chord. Maria likes writing in the locrian mode = me playing diminished chords. That particular one I think allows me to hammer a note to make it pop a bit more I think.  Also as far as a drummer goes, once we can buy one and keep him in the cupboard with a ball gag in... :) also will need a horn/string section. Honestly I think it would be unfair to put someone in the mix w/ us being married and pretty set in our ways. But I would never totally rule it out.

I don't think it'd necessarily be unfair for a drummer to get into the mix as long as you guys are open with 'em from the start on how set you are in your ways. If they're not okay with it, they won't be in your band. A friend of mine was honest with me about that when I auditioned for his band last year, I thought about it, declined, and he found a great guitarist for the job. And we're still friends, and they are definitely going places!

Patrick, yeah, well the day may  come when we DO work with a drummer again. She's facing a year of physical therapy to get back to nearly the strength she had prior to this. We have a bunch of other things going on too. I'm really just sharing the simplified version of our saga. :))

This isn't MY music, but it is a friend of mine who is REALLY talented. She's one of those artists where I really feel like it's only a matter of time before she gets signed to some indie rock label and quickly makes a name for herself.

Wombat, that album is phenomenal! Did you mean to misspell "Outer" in the opening track? Really cool instrumentation.



I just finished another three songs of ambient/drone/soundscape instrumentals. The compressor I used added a whole lot of chips and clicks, which I thought was cool enough to leave in. Free or whatever. http://drogue.bandcamp.com/album/3-weeks-in-europe

Thanks! Really appreciate that. I was thinking of making something like 50 CD-rs with handmade packaging/artwork and selling them for $5 or so, but considering how long it took me to get this thing out the door, I'm not sure I'll ever really get around to it.

And no, I didn't mean to misspell "outer," thanks for catching that!

Bear with me cause I have a ton of bands to sort though. In the meantime if you guys can spread the word on the site that would rock. The more popular the site gets the more eyes that see your band so its a win win for all of us.

Does the Reel Echo have a tap tempo? By far the best feature to have when you're putting delay on arpeggios, since you can dial in the perfect tempo for your chords. Actually, one of my favorite features of the TC Electronic Nova Repeater is the fact that you can cut up the tapped-in tempo into half and quarter notes: then all you have to do is key in the base tempo of your riff and then cut it until it syncs with the arpeggio.

See, I'd actually love to get a simple, 3-knob analog or tape echo, but I don't think I'd ever use it for simple delays. I've just always loved seeing guys tweak the shit out of MXR Carbon Copies to get weird noisy symphonies.

Not technically my own music, but my friends' band who my band played our last gig with (all the way back in November, man we need to get our shit together!) have just recorded a new song.  They're called Not Penny's Boat, the song's called "Transition Not Tragedy," (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPzzZPCiiOc&feature=player_embedded) and I'm personally getting a huge old-Banner Pilot vibe from it, which is pretty awesome, and apparently is what they were aiming for too!

"Transition Not Tragedy" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPzzZPCiiOc&feature=player_embedded)

This was a solid listen, I enjoyed it! I miss when Livermore's scene had stuff like this, but alas, everybody decided to go post-hardcore and then the scene died after venues got sick of it. Also I reeeeeally have been slacking on getting you that recording I promised. I've been somehow slacking my life away while being insanely busy at the same time, no idea how I manage to do that but there you have it.

So here it is, in all its meager vocal glory http://soundcloud.com/tuathal/gale-wont-you-go-away
Need to find a vocalist or something, because I'm incredibly shy about singing, even when recording stuff with nobody around.

Dude, your vox are great, you just need to enunciate dem words. And preferably put more of them in yr songs. I finally got around to listening today, and I instantly thought of Elliott Smith, who I'm sure everybody's already tired of hearing my praise for. Quit bitching about flaws :D

Just don't ever put Elliott on if you are already in a sad mood. You will die.

Thanks, btw, I probably spent an entire day just making sure the levels were all okay. Re: the solo, I really love the original (the smooth growl of that guitar sends delicious shivers down my back every time), but I decided I wasn't going to play it electric because I wanted to make an entire song happen with no electric instruments whatsoever.

THIS * infinity.
Sadly, there are far too many clubs that have ceded their business responsibilities to a revolving cast of dumbasses that sift through a bunch of emails and call themselves "booking agents." These lame motherfuckers have no skills and have never even met anyone who gets what you are saying Patrick. Sadly I am here to tell you that they are now the rule and not the exception. Whether it is pay-to-play or "What is your draw?" The WIYD crowd will book you at 7pm on a Tuesday, charge $10 and say if you don't bring X amount of people you can't play there again.
The good news is, if you don't like this kind of joint, wait. That buttmunch will go out of business soon. The other big scam is the battle-of-the-bands/showcase crowd. A lot of times they are combined. The only way to win is not to play these things. Typically you see 12 acts, all of whom are very young and could never get into a club (age restrictions) for a normal gig. They prey on them to bring mom, dad, uncle, class-mates. Whoever has the biggest family/circle of friends wins. You could literally go onstage and poop. They don't care. I once was invited to play one of these and accepted because it was a charity event AND I already had all the gear packed up for another show. When I got there and they asked everyone how many tickets I pre-sold I spoke up loudly "None." Dude got so mad at me, claimed it was a "Charity" and somehow I was hurting children that had cancer. I had previously asked if this pre-sell was required to play. Promoted heavily. Told the guy since he could not guarantee a specific time slot- that my people would show when they showed and buy tickets at the door. It turns out your presell decided your time slot. He told the clup owner's goon to kick me out. I let him know that the dude specifically lied to me and is lying to him. That I would under no circumstance ever play/enter his club again (I'd been there in other bands and had seen several real shows there). Big surprise, I met up with a couple guy that were at that event and played/coerced all their fam to come out and support with pre-sold tickets, they even bought a number of them themselves. This guy went all over the country and when it got to the end of the tour (featuring his ugly no-talent kids)- it turned out the charity was bogus. He kept all the $ from ticket sales as "expenses."
This guy sold this bullshit to the club owners. But I blame them for being scammed. If the budweiser truck pulled up and the driver handed them an envelop that said magic beer powder, just add beer- it is their own fault for falling for it.
Sorry for the tl;dr post.
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: VonKleist on 08 Jul 2012, 05:51
Whoa. Okay that IS pretty shitty, I guess :-(


I gues it´s not that the owners don't care about promoting their club or the draw of a band. As Doombilly pointed out there are hundreds of bands who would kill to play there, so the club owners get theirs anyway so they don't have to do jack.
We haven't pushed far beyond the circle of friends etc. in so far as audience, also the weather was nice and this weekend is CSD so there was a lot of other stuff going on, so I wasn't really surprised.
Playing was a lot of fun anyway, though I couldn't hear shit on the monitor.

My other band Sun Kin, however, has just put our first album up for free on the internet, and I think it's pretty dang rad! We've got a broad range of influences, from Mark Knopfler and Todd Rundgren (mine) to the Dirty Projectors and Animal Collective (Kabir's).

Me and Eric Cook were in Frocky Jack, and The Blots. Eric Cook was in 'thank you, spaceman.' And I recorded some of their early stuff. Scott Thompson was in the 'thank you, spaceman' but before that he was in 'borghal rantipole.' Scott also recorded a bunch of early Frocky Jack stuff. I'm pretty sure the live version of 'a cage' was 1 of his recordings.

Nice tune, would totally go see you guys.
I like that the backing vocals only come in at a few well choosen places. Provides just the right accentuation.

Somebody told me my music should be in videogames.
http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/494532

Agreed, as in, I would play that game and I am not even much of a gamer. Sounds like fun shit to play a flight sim along to.

Thanks for the words, guys, I was super stoked to find out somebody got it, even more stoked that it came out as clear as it did, and even more-er stoked that the bass isn't inaudible.

I also just found out somebody got video of my homage to Hendrix from the 4th of July show. Several beers and an AMF were harmed in the making of this film (http://youtu.be/rJS3on5DLTY)

I know I don't post much anymore but basically I wanted to spam my musics at you.

I sing in a black metal band in Sydney, Australia. We had our first gig in nearly 4 years on Sunday and someone took a video!

You can look at it here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wgp1nOYTLk)

I'm very proud of myself at the moment even though I was nearly shitting myself from nerves on the night. I forgot how not to be nervous during that time between gigs.

Thanks for the positive thoughts, guys!

And, Valley, I assume you mean Joie?  Haha, yes!  I left the band after our highly publicized "last show" and moved out of the country.  Part of me is glad I did, because I think this may be my favorite album of the year, and it would be really lame of me to like an album that I recorded on that much.  Does this make sense?  Because that sentence was atrocious.

I'm whoring my stuff out a bit here in my opinion, but that's fine cause that's what this thread is for, right?

So I sort of came up with this today and here's my first attempt at getting it recorded, probably the only one until I get moved into my next place, so I'm a bit impatient. I'm not sure what genre this is, but it's delayed pretty heavily and contains some light distortion.
Comes ungllued at about 2 minutes, so you might as well stop listening there.

Hmm, is 5ish songs the generally understood limit? Our list is, like, 15 songs... Also, how crazy out there do you want to get? I would've loved to do, like, a Tom Waits set or something, but there's just no way we could've done him justice.

Given our tendency to rush a little when we play live, we usually fit at least 10-11 songs in our sets. Our entire 9 song album is only half an hour, and the norm at almost every gig we've played has been an hour (including setup/teardown).

As for the costume, I've got short dirty-blonde hair and about a month left to grow a blonde beard, and I'm a rather thin guy with super defined facial features. I considered being the guy from Trainspotting since I look a bit like a heroin addict, but since one of my bandmates lost a close friend to heroin I thought better of it...

Good day QC Forum. I broke my wrist 2.5 weeks ago. Show tonight in lower Manhattan. Hopefully there won't be too much storm damange/flooding/insanity. Playing with a cast on my left hand. Worked 3 days with a broken bone because hey, no money, no insurance, etc.. Lost 2 days of work when I got the brace on, had another cast put on by begging for a reduced Dr fee.  Been spending 6 hrs a day trying to commute to/from work since there are basically no subways in a city of millions of fuckers. Yeah.

The fracture isn't bad. I get this cast off in just under 2 weeks. Maybe a brace after that. NY is cool, but this City really only loves the rich. I didn't lose anything but money to Sandy. But the MTA doesn't really appear to have any kind of plan. That has me worried. The water just won't get out of some of these tunnels.

I've discovered I can record directly into the line in on my computer. I have major latency issues so I have to re-align it every time, but that hasn't been a huge problem so far. I can't record anything that sounds good, but I decided I'm going to record a cover just to get my chops back in before I do some kind of lo-fi demo.

I've found the perfect song to do. 'Who Do You Love?' by Bo Diddley. It's the most insane bluesman braggadocio I've ever heard ('I wore a cobra snake for a necktie/I got a brand new chimney made on top, made of a human skull') and I think that a lo-fi, insane demo which doesn't even have any drums on it since I don't have any drums, could really work.

So yeah, that's gonna happen. Maybe even tomorrow.

Fuck it, I made a soundcloud and put the remnants of my woeful songwriting on there. Most of them made in collaboration with my buddy Thomas Mawson under various pseudonyms, only uploaded the ones with me as primary vocalist so that he can put the other ones on his page sometime in the future.

http://soundcloud.com/gareth-hughes-13

For those in a hurry, here is the best thing on it:
[soundcloud]http://soundcloud.com/gareth-hughes-13/im-hardcore-holly-how-do-you[/soundcloud]
It's a semi-ironic tribute song to a pro wrestler, who is seemingly a total dickbag. Also features a spontaneous vocal harmony that I wish we'd done other times in the song, but I tend to force Thomas into single takes and refuse to record a second time.

Post by: Soulsynger on 22 Nov 2012, 05:38
I've spent a lot of time in the past five years making my own electronic music using Reason and Ableton Live and broadening my horizon in the direction of ambient, dark ambient, industrial, noise&rhythm and glitch.
Recently I've discovered the music of industrial act Stendeck (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DG0Xh4VY7xE&list=PLWvKN-K69-8ccoGmcUYPoDyX2M9pLdcfi&feature=plcp) and have started experimenting in that direction while trying not to loose my vision of mixing industrial and chillout music.

This is my latest work in progress and together with a more industrial track I will be uploading in a few days (which might be my best work yet) I feel I am on the right track to finding my own style at last.

Relaxed industrial by Hirnfunk "Filtered Thoughts of dizzy Birds"
[soundcloud]http://soundcloud.com/crae/filtered-thoughts-of-dizzy[/soundcloud]


(I should say that I have never received any training in mixing, composing or mastering. I took singing lessons for about a year and a half to develop my inner ear for notes and harmonics but that's it. Everything you hear is self taught without using any pre-existing beats or melodies.)

PS: I know this isn't what people on this board seem to usually listen to. It's a shot in the dark. :)

edit: I can't get into the discussion right now. I'm at work and my break's not long enough. Oo

I still have no good mic, and fucked latency. This was recorded meticulously by plugging my guitar pickup directly into the computer, then playing over it (deleting little jots of silence to line it up) then singing over it using a microphone that cost me $20 five years ago. Also, my vocal sucks.

However, I feel like I achieved something, because I recorded something for the first time in months. And the guitar instrumental bit may suck ass, but I think it's worth it for the harmonic it ends on.

Just don't compress your end project so much. There are other, better, ways to achieve volume equalization.
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: Thrillho on 04 Dec 2012, 23:50
I didn't compress it. At all. That's just how bad it sounds to plug in directly with no pre-amp.
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: VonKleist on 05 Dec 2012, 03:22
Sounds good to me, Gareth.
Certainly doesn't suck.

What kind of guitar is it? SOunds a bit tinny but then again that´s probably the lack of an interface/preamp.
VOcals are cool, might be somewhat clearer in some parts, but whatever floats your boat.

Re-record with interface and it´ll come out fine!

Got the first mix back from the producer and it is boss. Keeping all the stuff redacted because I want there to be a clean slate when we release this stuff for real, whenever that may be. But in the meantime, just know that this is song #1 from my band's first record.

Dear you guys who donated to the Kickstarter,

We're trying to mail all our shit out so it'll get to you by Christmas, or at very least the New Year. We're signing every poster we ship.

Love,

You can download it for any price you like on our bandcamp site-http://theriveras.bandcamp.com/

Thanks so much!  We all really appreciate it. 

This is actually part of a larger project to write, record, release and make a video for one song a month for the next year.  We're doing it in conjunction with the studio we use, Arcane Digital as part of what we're calling a "studio residency."   At the end, we'll be doing a full length release party with all of the recordings and videos on one thumb drive rather than a cd.  It's sort of two experiments- one in writing and recording under pressure, and another in seeing the difference in taking ownership over the release of our music, rather than using the standby method of paying to produce a cd and then having a cd release party. 
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: Thrillho on 08 Jan 2013, 09:50
To be arse-honest about it, I didn't really like the vocals very much. But that's my own hang-up, because I can appreciate how beautiful a piece it was and how well the vocals fit into the song, almost like another instrument rather than as the focal point. Great production and mixing job on it too. You should be proud.
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: Chad K. on 08 Jan 2013, 10:41
Thanks!  No worries on the vocals, we understand it's not for everyone.  We always mix the vocals low so that they act as another instrument, rather than a focal point.   For that reason, we tend to have very few choruses, or even consistent phrasing in verses.   Both the singer and I are big fans of a bunch of 90's Kansas City and D.C. indie rock bands and labels where the vocals are usually treated that way.
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: Thrillho on 08 Jan 2013, 11:26
It's a good choice. Adds to the sound rather than subtracting from it.

Heyho..

anyone care to check out these drums we recorded yesterday and give me a quick opinion on the overall sound? :)

It´s a work-in-progress thing so you´ll be hearing a click/guitar-track with the raw drumtracks and some vocals for the drummer's orientation.

Recorded using:
2x Overhead Sennheiser
1x SM57 on Snare/Hihat
1x Behringer Bassdrum Mic

Set in a slight panorama (Overheads are turned way left and right and the rest in the middle), no EQ or Comps or anything yet.

Show tonight at The Bowery Electric. (http://www.theboweryelectric.com/map-room/) Ugh, both of us have been sick for so long I can't remember when we were well. Kind of nervous because I may have work people coming and they are just used to seeing me wear an apron and memorizing the PLU's for organic produce. Juxtafucked. Also Lummer,  YOLOCAUST= genius. Do it or get scooped. Don't be a Yolocaust denier.
My left wrist bone is healed but I do not have the range of motion to do a lot of things. Playing guitar isn't one of those. So it will be lack of practice kneeing me in the groin tonight not distal radial fracture. My schedule suxxx00rz. Sleeping has been hard to pull off effectively.

So I've recently joined a band which a sort of hybrid between oldschool Black Metal and melodic Funeral Doom. Mr. Doctor would probably like this!
It's called Eldjudnir, I've already played my first show with them, and yesterday me and the dude who's written and recorded everything so far sat down at his place and pieced this song together:

https://soundcloud.com/eldjudnir/lilleper

95% of the guitars are written and recorded by me. Bass by him. We're both very pleased with it, and look massively forward to recording it for real, and debuting it live!

Keep trying. She has a flaky internet connection, and so often gets WAY behind on her correspondence. Plus, well... she's a musician... and fits that part of the stereotype far more than she should.  :roll:

Next time I talk with her, I'll let her know that she should make this happen! BTW, the music video I've been working on with her and Musical Charis is just about done, and we've set a release date of the 10th for it.

Anyway I have some demos for my 3rd wave progressive black/doom band, Isgahaatt, that you might dig. The first track is inspired by Raymond E. Feist books and the second is about I think mermaids/sirens. Oh, I'm on vocals bee tee dubs.

So here is a song from the band I joined about a month ago. They've been together for a couple years before I joined and this recording isn't me on bass, but you get the jist. Playing some very old school sounding rock music, which is great fun. They've had problems before with bass players that range from sheer inability to an overabundance of showboating, so with me they've found a perfect happy medium. Anyway we're just getting really tight now set-wise and are booking loads of gigs over the summer, so I am super excited!

That would be...cool as hell! I mean I don't expect that he'd like it but hopefully he'd appreciate the sentiment. It's not about stuff that he wrote specifically but it's very heavily inspired by A Darkness At Sethanon, especially the fall of Armengar and Murmandamus and all that stuff. But now that I think about it, since it's basically about modern earth being overrun by demons etc... It's also heavily inspired by the rest of...everything he's written? At least the Midkemia stuff. Anyway, yeah that would be so cool, thank you!

OK, he listened to it. Based on what you said above, I assured him in my post that it was inspired by, not derived from, which is a very important legal distinction that allows us all to avoid an awkward situation of his publisher sending a lawyer-gram, and that's what he's referring to in the 2nd sentence.

Quote
Thanks.  Ya, that kind of would be awkward.  I don't think I quite get
it.  "Doom Metal?"   "Black Metal?"  I'm not even sure what that's
supposed to mean.   Sort of a Metallica thing going there, with some
rifts that remind me of Sabbath.      Mostly, though, reminds me of
Gwarr.

Best, R.E.F.

So like you guessed, not his cuppa, but at least you can tell your mates he's heard it, and the fact that it's out there is in his mental database (and I wouldn't be surprised if he asked his kids what they think about it).

I hate I am never anywhere I can check out anyone's music on here. But I love the fact that I'm so busy I only get on QC every now and again. One day I'll pop in and find out you've all been raptured or are replacing that guy from Slayer wot died. Today I interview for a move up at my job. I'm not a favorite in this race. Tomorrow we re-record "Needle" (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/67766/illicitizen-mp3/FAW/320/08%20Needle.mp3) in hopes that some pop-tart wants to record/buy it or they need it for a Cialis commercial. Kind of amazed after listening to the whole of our last record that would be the one they'd pick. Oh well money down the drain, I'm sure it'll sit on an electronic shelf and collect metaphoric dust.

Me and my mate Thom did another all-live, all-acoustic album! Our band name is Keithoats this time and the album is called No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service, No Woman, No Cry. It was written form scratch and recorded in five days, hence the occasional appalling guitar solos and vocal flubs. We're rough and ready, what can I say?

For a preview, here is one of my favourite tracks from the album, 'An Open Mind.'

Good to hear you guys are keeping it up. I've got some news myself, Troubador just spent Sunday's practice recording demos of almost all of our new songs. Recorded all 12 or so demos in the space of under an hour, too. I'm incredibly excited about this and can't wait to start work on recording the next album, which is what these demos will help us do.

Hi! I'm still new, I guess. Mostly been posting my drawy stuff over on some of the other forums. Figured I'd throw in my hat in this thread as well.
I play in a danish Viking/Battle/Folk metal act called Vanir. We've released two albums so far, and I guess we're what you'd call underground-big in our own country. We recently had a pretty major line-up change, so that was fun. End result is that the music on the upcoming album will be a tad more on the melodic death side (with a bagpipe, still)

Fro anyone who's interested, my band got quite a nice write up.  There's a link at the end to our newest stuff.  We have a new song out called "Black Box" on there.  It's once of my favorite songs we've written.  Check it out-

So I wrote a song. It's recorded appallingly (my terrible mic seems to actually be getting worse somehow) but I think it's one of the best songs I've ever written. If I ever made an album (or just got a decent mic) I would happily just re-record these exact parts on it and wouldn't feel a need to overdub anything else.

All of my music is over at the appropriately named aliensporebomb.com.

I spent over five years writing a crazy rock instrumental record, writing, recording, playing, producing, doing the art, everything here:
http://aliensporebomb.bandcamp.com/album/this-is-aliensporebomb-special-edition

Then I started an ambient music project called Ionosphere Casting Shadows here - which has one release:
http://aliensporebomb.bandcamp.com/album/a-passage-from-the-vault-of-hours

Which lead to me doing a documentary soundtrack here:
http://aliensporebomb.bandcamp.com/album/the-life-and-artwork-of-solveig-arneng-johnson-the-ambient-soundtrack

And my experiments in progress are here:
https://soundcloud.com/aliensporebomb

I'm in the process of writing another rock project which should probably be my midlife crisis recording since it's a lot more guitar heavy than any previous release.
I'm also probably going to do a project with my wife (who is a vocalist/keyboardist) but not sure what will transpire there, probably songs set up for her soprano voice.

None of this has lead to fame or fortune, it's just something I enjoy that leads to gigs here and there and occasional amusement.

depends on whether or not you're doing overdubs. if no, fuck it, just get your ideas down in a form where you can access them later without relying on your own memory. if yes, well, that's a little different of a story, but there are such things as demos.

I have been trying to do the overdubs, and that's part of what's causing me problems, but even with the rhythm part I'm being overly prissy and perfect about it. I think I need to realise that these things are for me, they're not going to be heard by anyone else any time soon, so I should just chill out.

The worst thing is it's now making me question myself as a guitarist, I'm by no means amazing on the thing, but I know how to play the way I like to play, and I sit and come up with my own things more often than I sit and try to learn the solo from Paranoid.

Albums take like a million takes of every track to get done. That's why it's always such a big deal when a band says 'we did it live in one take!' Which is most likely bullshit most of the time anyway. Not being able to get it done in one is nothing to do with musical competence. I can do perfect single takes of my songs all the time... until the red light's on, and then I screw up left right and centre because of the pressure, just like I sing better when I'm drunk in a club than I do onstage because I'm in DGAF mode and so I just let my throat open and the words fly.

My personal record for "most takes required to complete a song" is 106 or 107 (took me at least 6 hours and I swore a lot), and it was for the bass line to this song (http://sunraykin.bandcamp.com/track/rust-2). The most irksome thing I've ever experienced was getting the finalized masters for it and discovering that the part right at the end of the 2nd verse got cut by accident. How in the actual fuck does a mistake like that happen in the digital age? And to be totally fair and honest, this song is not perfect.

Still, I'm incredibly proud of this recording, and all my contributions to this song specifically. It brings me back to the whole 3 days we spent on this song alone. My bandmate had kinda dropped out of the song a little bit emotionally by time we'd recorded it (he got over his feelings for the situation that inspired it) and it had become a lot more relevant for my life due to things that transpired during the recording process. Kabir wrote the song and did lead vocals and the acoustic guitar track, and I either tracked or wrote every single other individual instrument/vocal part of the song.

It's been almost 2 years, and in that amount of time, I regret less the minor imperfections, and more the fact I can't ever make it out to Berkeley like I used to in order to go jam and record with somebody with whom I have done work I'm still just as proud of as the day we called that album done.

So stop being so hard on myself? It was so much more fun with bandmates I have to say.

shit, thanks! I can't say the whole thing is quite as good as that one (I feel like we got rushed in a number of ways in the final steps), but there's some that I'm damn proud of. "Slacker's Jaw" is probably my favorite. we used just our voices, guitars+amps, stomps and claps, and a weed grinder, and it sounds more like the real deal than some of the stuff we kinda half-assed with more conventional rock instrumentation. second favorite is the one linked before, and then "Bittern Suite" and "A.H" tie for 3rd.

Having listened to it a few times, I can agree with what you said, Rust really does stand out to me as a great track, not that any of the album feels like filler or is bad in anyway, it's actually brilliantly coherent and consistent. It really reminds me of Oh, inverted World by The Shins, in that I love listening to the whole album, but my ears always prick up when Pressed In A Book starts playing, it just has a certain something that catches me out and I love it.

Altogether, you should be proud of the album for sure. And now I need to start listening to Troubadour a bit more.

Thanks! I am definitely proud of it, and I agree that there's lots of good ideas on there. I just think that for all Kabir's incredible creative talents, he could stand to be a little more patient during the recording process. I feel like some truly excellent songs (Headband Dream, Good Feels, and most of all Rotten Rotten Me) are marred by some very avoidable slop that I just can't get over, for some reason which is inextricably related to my obsessive perfectionism. In some of the newer demos he's showed me, though, his overdubs fit a lot tighter than ever before. Maybe me bitching at him like a nagging spouse to use a metronome finally sunk in. ;)

And feel free to listen to whatever of mine you want, you'll hear nothing but thanks from me. Y'all are too kind.  :psyduck:

So I've been doing a fair few covers recently for my radio show, one of which is from Patrick's band Troubador - I covered their song Sunday Morning, and to be honest, I think it's one of the best one-takes I've ever done:
https://app.box.com/s/l61ycih0bjd698cvus2c

Also last night my band did a one-take of Bloodbuzz Ohio by The National, which I am incredibly happy about.
[soundcloud]https://soundcloud.com/the-best-worst-idea/bloodbuzz-ohio-cover[/soundcloud]

Still trying to write some more originals, particularly lyrics - i'm almost tempted to go full on Cream and just have random lines that make no sense ('but the rainbow has a beard' et al)
Title: Re: This is the thead where share and talk about our own music
Post by: Thrillho on 23 Apr 2014, 10:26
I hope you're partly tempted because I keep trying to get you to do it. I wrote one of my absolute best songs that way and I'm working on another one where I plan on doing that. You can always rewrite the lyrics later, at least get a vocal melody in there.

And sometimes the words take on more meaning than they first appear ('she's eating her fingers like they're just another meal') and sometimes you find transcendent lines in amongst the wreckage ('you're the kind of girl I like because you're empty and I'm empty').

Likewise. Chad, it probably goes without saying by now, but I appreciate the fuck out of your band and your collective efforts. Please don't ever stop.

Tonight I got drunk and decided to write a song about an airliner I watched as it passed over my hometown. And it reminded me of my dad, who is aging a year per month, it seems. So I decided to write about the airplane, and my feelings regarding my relationship with my pops just decided to show up out of nowhere. I got lucky tonight.

Anyway, here's a rough demo of the song (https://app.box.com/s/69pfssnlw4lqybppm9sk), and since the recording quality is POTATO~~~ the lyrics follow below, spoilered for the tidiness of the thread:

The double standard is strong with this one. So what if people want others to check out the stuff that they or their band create? Noone is forcing anyone to click any links here. It is all voluntary. Popping into a thread just to bitch about the basic idea behind the thread itself just seems way more attentionwhore'ish and selfcentered than anything you're accusing anyone else of.

I'm glad that you're taking your music to those that will appreciate it more, Pat. That Troubador album was amongst my top 10 favourite albums.

You and I need to get on board with some sort of international collaboration. You know, like that band thing we were going to do  :emotrex:



In the meantime, I recently purchased a badass new acoustic. Today I finally managed to get my recording gear out.

What came out is a cover of Gareth's song Warm Suburban Autumns. Very little mixing, no effects added, done in one take for each part (staying true to the original author :P )

Enjoy.

Post by: Thrillho on 26 Nov 2014, 01:48
So I've now listened to it and uh... I really shouldn't love a version of one of my own songs so much... but it actually brought a tear to my eye to hear Luke doing this.

I mean Luke knows I know he's covered one of my other songs before, which was 'Slip Underneath,' a pissed off song about my divorce, but that was pretty much a straight piano cover of it - not that that's a bad thing at all.

I feel like Luke's really put his own stamp on this song, and in some ways I think improved it; my version was always meant to be a love song/murder ballad where the lyrics subvert the song's tone, and Luke's version is a lot more wistful and relaxed than either of my versions. The backing vocals really add a catchy element to it.

In short, I fucking love it. Thanks Luke!

So upon further discussion and reflection I have realized it wasn't Matt that was the weak link, it was Paul. Great man, but he wasn't excited to be in a band, and Matt naturally fed off it. And ultimately it got to me too.

We started working with a truly brilliant new drummer named Will, and although it's 2/3 of Troubador, we won't be playing those songs anymore. New material now, there'll be a new name too.

I'm excited to say I'm back in business, and there'll be songs of my own in this new project.

I love bands with two distinct writers. It's one of my favourite things about the band dynamic. Even as early as in my first metal band, I felt that the friendly competition ('I'm going to write a song that'll beat the shit out of your song') really adds an edge to the proceedings and brings out the best in you both. In my duo with my best friend Thom, it's even better because we both sing, so we have our distinctive voices that both fit, albeit completely differently, into our material.

Post by: Patrick on 15 Dec 2014, 23:02
I feel like it was time to move on. As moving as it was to watch Matt while we played that song, I know it hurt him to keep playing it over and over. It is to him what "Fire And Rain" is to James Taylor; a song about losing your best friend.

Which, as a cruel twist of fate, is far and away his biggest and best hit, in the case of both artists.

How did this happen?  :psyduck:
I like it though

This is based around a bassline I wrote when I was about sixteen and never did anything with, so in recording it, it kind of turned into a bass duet with accompaniment by guitar. I oddly like it. Needs a bit more work to get some mistakes out and I need to get rid of that hiss, but otherwise it's everything I dreamt of at sixteen

Not my music, but my step-brother-in-law's.  He's solely responsible for my 4-year old walking around singing "Strawberry Fields", and he does all his own music and art.  He says he's influenced by The Beatles (obviously) and Dr. Dog and a few other local bands in the Maryland area, but I think he sounds a fair bit like Women (and Grizzly Bear, from time to time).  He's actually pretty good, for an 18-year old kid, and I'm not saying that with even a hint of nepotism.

So, a while ago I applied to get into a Sound Engineering degree, using a mixture of covers from forumites and some of my own music.
It worked, I got in, and the course is great! So, here are said songs.
I honestly think this version of Warm Suburban Autumns is one of the best things I've ever recorded.

I've been inactive for decades, until April last year when I got Caustic for Android; most of the stuff I've made in the past 12 months has been done in Caustic.

Last December I got a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface and Ableton Live 9 Lite, so I hope to soon be making more stuff with real instruments like my bass guitar, my Yamaha keyboard, and my Chapman Stick.
And also record better-quality vocals - existing stuff was either recorded with my tablet's microphone, or with a Radio Shack vocal mic plugged into the Windows notebook's mic jack.

Anyway, here's my page: https://soundcloud.com/stephenkarnas
There's a mix of electronic, rock, and rap there; some covers and some originals. Plus a live band recording from 1992.

Tell me about it. 90% of what I record is made up on the spot. That is a gift in itself if you're part of a jam band, but I'm not.

It also explains why I never go back and rerecord things.

I've been up to some stuff too!

Recorded another all-live, handful-of-days album with my best friend. Him and I, acoustic guitars, nothing else.

This is our shamelessly poptastic R'n'Bish song, the only one we co-wrote on this album. I'm the left speaker, he's in the right.

It's only temporarily on my page until I can get a proper band page running, because I want to try and make an attempt to actually monetise our music.

 Olivia De Havilland Mosquitoes? Brilliant! :lol:  They fly very fast, and bomb and strafe Warner Brothers.

My band did a thing.
Metal where I could understand the lyrics! :-o  Is that even allowed?

I took today off work with a view to writing, recording and putting online some new music (https://garethmhughes.bandcamp.com/album/g33ked). I wrote two songs from scratch. I was aiming for four and I managed two more half-songs that weren't worth finishing, so here's these two.

I may have ripped off Big Star a lot for the first one.

I've never recorded any music and only played in front of an audience a handful of times. I mostly just do it for myself for fun, relaxation, and personal edification. When it comes to music my hobby is trying to create solo acoustic guitar versions of harder and heavier songs.

Its funny I only get comments on the name from guys 50-70+ yrs old. I may have been too narrow in my cleverness, demographically.  :cry:

I made a new thing! (https://soundcloud.com/stephenkarnas/ralph-bakshi-thetatr0n-remix)

This is a remix of a hip hop track "Ralph Bakshi" by Kabuto the Python. I added a 16-bar verse of my own as SHLF LIFE, and completely rebuilt the instrumental.
There is no sequencing or looped samples on this track - it's all played by human players (my brother played the drums and I played everything else.)
