Wow! Just wrote a song in a day today, called Energy To Burn . That is super-fast by my standards. It's a fast-tempo high-octane gallop through a handful of power chords in the key of E. Only prob is, it's all still in my head! Now, to set about getting it down......
Thanks for putting some of my tracks in your playlist!
Wrecking Ball is a great tune. Great harmonies - kind of strung out vibe. ..reminds me of Ride
Oh, like the lyrics, too. The whole song is 6 lines! That's really cool.
Thanks Colin. I really dig your songs. For some reason, although you don't really sound that much like them, I get a similar feeling from your songs that I get from some James tunes. I don't know if you like them or not, but I'm a big fan of theirs. Keep up the good work!
Wrecking Ball is a great production
I hope we ll hear some more in the future:)
Go and listen to the Grand Orpingtons' "Supercollider" NOW!!! I dunno who they are but this one tune is just mental!! It makes me feel good everytime I hear it!
Thanks for the review of my track Grab The Moment. Syd Barrett and Billy Armstrong eh? I'll take that!
I like your stuff. Sunday has got a reat kind of ramshakle groove and loads of good ideas. I'd like to hear it done with real drums.
Draco sounds like it comes from all over the place! ...and that weird rattling sub-bass thing is mental.
Not so sure about Dead Saguaro, but I get your cinematic comment.
Keep up the good (and slightly off the wall) work!
Thanks for your review of my tune Grab The Moment Kiara. I know what you mean about the scratchy sound; it was done in my bedroom so it's not the best production.
I really like No More Lies; top tune with great vocals and teriffic arrangement!! I think the other two songs sound really cool and contemporary as well, although I must say, I'm not sure about the cheesy bassline on Rockstar!!!
Your name looks great on your URL! A whole load of 'a's and 'i's in one word!! Have you thought about writing it that way as a stage name? I can just see it on the posters! It'd look really original and distinctive!
Thanks for the great review of Grab The Moment, Tom. I'll see if I can bring the vocals up in the mix if I get a chance to return to it.
Your tunes are very atmospheric. There's a definite hint of Dylan in the vocals, which can't be bad.
Supercollider! Brilliant! Now I'm gonna jump about and break something!!!!!!
Have you got any more where that one came from? I wanna hear more.
Thanks for your review of my tune Grab The Moment, D'Simone. I'm glad you liked the guitar line at the intro. If I get the chance, I'll go back and pull it forward in the mix after the choruses, as you suggested.
Liked your tracks Let it Fly and Sleepwalking (especially the soaring chorus on the latter), but Desert Rain wouldn't play. Does it play for you from Broadjam, or is there a problem somewhere?
Thanks for your review of my tune Grab The Moment Gary. It was great to get such positive feedback.
Love your tracks here, particularly Soul Cry and The Quest. I've got some themes along similar lines but haven't ever recorded them properly. Maybe I should dust them down....
Hey Colin! Thx for your review of "I can take you" (over the stars)! You took the time to compliment us and gave true advice. Very much appreciated! This song is a v.good 10 year old home demo, so definitely needs to be rerecorded. Happy you enjoyed it!! All the best with your music! Cheers! Tanya
hi Colin, thanx for your review of Solo So Low...the drum comment makes me want to go back now and check it out--my producer is in charge of all that, i give him usually 4 tracks as a guideline, and he plays all the instruments and drum program, etc.
but thanx for the very talented and thoughtful review...
best of luck, warren hein/songwriter
Listened to Jaded. Here are my thoughts (for what they're worth, which isn't probably much, but heym at least it's feedback, right?). Quite a good song, but the production is very muffled. I like the voice. It has has lots of interesting character but here it sounds weak & lacking confidence. Why? Because it needs LOADS more top end to bring it to the front of the mix (it doesn't necessarily need more level). Then it'll sound crisp and breathier. Thats probably all it needs to sound really great.
Also the clean guitar on the verses is played well but sounds wooly. I'd roll off ALL the bass end of it and narrow the sound to a moderate bandwidth somewhere in the mids to upper mids. Its extreme, but a simple way to to make it keener and brighter. The crunch guitars in the chorus sound fine.
Listened to 12 Months and it sounds better but my above thoughts apply to it, too.
Feel free to think of me as an over-opinionated bastard nobody though, cos that's basically what I am.
thanks collin, the feedback is great. the mixing is a big issue for me, its just me in my garage trying to figure it out. i will try what you said and see if i can get a crisper sound on it all. other than the mix, how was the song? i am pretty new to this whole singing thing and still not sure if i can pull it off. thanks again
I think an OOB here and there can be educational. what the heck is that band i used to love and have a CD of - the lead singer has a voice almost exactly like "one last day" - it's really distinctive and i still love the low.
