New BC thread, old one just 404'd.
soundcloud, nto a bandcamp, btu same thing, right?
i dog your shit. reminds me of early spring, winter mornings.
if anything, i would make the songs blend together less.
This is all the stuff I put out last year. I've got quite a bit of material to release this year sometime.
>death pop / chiptune
>electroclash / digital chaos
a c f a i i cassettes coming soon!!
How's the full length coming Davey?
It's coming along well. We have one song that we're trying to flesh out but so far the riff for it is pretty cool. I suppose I could put up a rough demo and someone could give me some pointers for how to develop it?
>chillwave // glo-fi // dreampop
Gonna lurk this more, an rec more once it kicks off ;)
>acoustic / electronic
put up a new album recently
>lo-fi, Experimental, Witch-house
NEW ALBUM OUT
>lo fi fuzz pop
>FFO pavement, alex g, elliott smith, i guess?
>based on the lost gospels
feedback appreciated and returned
>atmospheric/minimalist folk, some freak folk
Thanks for listening and downloading everybody.
All new demo up that I'd really like some feedback on so I can improve. I have a fast paced version in mind and a slow one, so I guess I might release two different versions of the song.
>based on lost gospels
This just gets cooler each time I hear it. The only feedback I can really think of is maybe moving that weird screaming in the first track to the background or maybe to an instrumental section, it distracts from the cool vocals. Overall cool as hell though.
>post-rock,drone with lots of ambient pieces, found sounds, and field recordings.
i'll be posting feedback soon
>Minimal Techno, Bare Bones, Weird
other decent stuff:
Thanks dude, really digging this, great 'syrup-y' synths going on. Those That Shape Us is awesome
Cool stuff here too, like Crissy Castles but without Alice ruining it. Love the artwork too
New band with demos for upcoming release
>psych, garage, post-punk
In the midst of recording, so please enjoy tasty live tracks in the meanwhile.
>pink punk, moxy-rock
>ambient, drone, glitch
>noise rock, math rock, shoegaze
>jangle indie stuff
>groovy psych, laid back music to drink coffee to
>star trek comedy funk rock
>sample based psych pop
shallows - citrine
lo-fi, indie, experimental, short songs
ahh I really like this. maybe just lower the volume of the main synth. and yeah i'd definitely like to hear a fast version.
and thanks for the feedback, i think i will lower the volume of the screaming eventually. i'm so glad you dig this man.
Thanks. It's actually just one synth being played at the time and I definitely plan on lowering the volume.
I have plans for vocals but I don't think mine would work at all so I'm looking for someone else to do it. But I have no lyrics in mind at this time.
>23 tracks of atmospheric guitars, weirdly tweaked samples and synth worship
>difficult to classify as a specific genre
Stuff that I like:
God-tier diaspora m8!
>Dark Ambient/Drone/Post Rock
>Black Metal/Dark Metal
reccing. stuff is gewd :)
>trippy psych with a heavy alt rock twist
>emo/softcore punk, philadelphia boys wielding telecasters, we have cool tapes
>free jazz, punk jazz, noise rock, insanity, we've been a garage punk/indie rock band since high school and this is our first dip into the free jazz frontier
>>53027578 here. Just realised I didn't tag my music at all. It's electronic stuff generally.
I've had a few beers tonight since tomorrow's my day off, so apologies is my feedback isn't as articulate as it could be.
Dave, it's as good as ever. I've nothing much to say that I've not already said but that your production has always has a great deal of "savvy" to it, that is, you seem to be very knowledgeable with the process of producing electronic music.
I enjoy your drums more than anything. definite bite to them. rpg8 reminds me of something from Ghosts by NIN.
The production here is really impressive. This doesn't remind me of anything, which I assure you is a compliment. I like how you've taken some of the more obscure elements of certain genres and fused them together, the instrumental sounds different to most stuff I've heard.
As always, very good stuff, personally I feel you should explore slightly different territories on your next release. Look up Math The Band if you've not already and see how they progressed their 8-bit/chiptune-ish sound to their own individual sound. Production and mixing is fantastic though, extremely enviable.
Sorry to skip you, but I'm not into this style of music to judge it at all. I can see the effort into the production though.
The sidechain on Vapour started off really nice, the simplistic beat really added to it, though it could have done with a bit more of a bass melody, being a high-pitched sample. Fantastic opening track though.
It's A Lie has a really enjoyable melody. I like that you're singing with the accent of your speaking voice, a la Mountain Goats, which I can only hope you receive as a compliment.
A War of Attrition has lovely guitar production, and a fantastically relaxing, comfy melody. I really enjoyed the vocal harmonies too, those two melodies worked fantastically together
Returning all feedback
> First Wave post-rock, Instrumental, Psychedelic, hints of western
Ey thanks for the feedback, had your album for ages and got your new stuff under the different name too. I kind of like MTB, I think their mastering is always so fucking treble-y though, also I don't really like the guy's voice on a lot of their albums. Don't Worry is a great release by them though.
> got your new stuff under the different name too
new name you say?
I like the ethereal vocals, especially on Good Abandonment.
I'll just repost this rec of an acquaintance’s new album as he's a tremendous artist.
Witch Tapes/Irenaeus/Jeffrey Mockingbird here
On G L O O M the only problem I can find is the hi-hats. The problem is they sound similar to a lot of hi-hats I see in songs of a similar style to yours. Other than that, it's a really good, enjoyable song. Your mixing is great.
>>53027771 Elhagyott Templom II was a little bit metallic for me. I'm not sure if this was the intention. Can I ask (because I can't tell) was this a VST guitar? Because for whatever reason I can hear Fruity Slayer in there.
Arrow is really nice. I like the piano's inclusion on the track, especially after 1:45 or so. The melody does remind me of Elliott Smith, it sounds like something on Figure 8, my favourite sound of his. Also have you heard The Longwalls? They're on bandcamp, you may dig them, specifically Dark Academy.
The guitar on Timothy's Servant is nicely mixed against the drums and bass. The vocal track, I would have liked to see a bit louder though. I enjoyd the track though, there were vibes of Sonic Youth in there (aside from the screaming backing vox)
The reverb here is glorious. This is one of the subtly best examples of it on a vocal track.
I must have forgotten to download this a while ago.
The guitar recordings n The Chicken And The Chalk are phenomenal. But the whole mix after 2:10 is fantastic. Did you produce this on your own? If so, it's quite impressive.
I see what you're edging towards and I think it's interesting. I'd have to listen to quite a bit more of your stuff to give any decent feedback though
Ooze had chords which seemed quite obvious, but a melody which definitely didn't in any way, which made the whole thing interesting. I enjoyed it and was honestly a bit disappointed as I felt it ended a bit early.
Sunshine has phenomenal production, I really enjoyed that track enough to download the album. This is seriously great mixing for a live recording!
Hey have you had a look at making a song from that childhood recording I posted? I'd love to hear something done with it.
Our new album made in collaboration with Polysemy, Daycare Riot and K.
>experimental, dark electro, harsh noise, dark ambient, power electronics, japanese people shitting on microphones
>The guitar recordings n The Chicken And The Chalk are phenomenal. But the whole mix after 2:10 is fantastic. Did you produce this on your own? If so, it's quite impressive.
Yeah, we produced all of it. I'm glad you liked it. :)
Me again, a third time
Fantastically comfy, the guitar against the piano in the mixing on the first track is really enjoyable. The synths on the second track felt meditative.
ADHD song 4 has a pretty nice guitar melody, and the crunchy riff underneath that and the noise on top made the whole thing sound very urgent, which really played to its strengths
Sonic Deity has a nice but somewhat generic pad. Was this one you programmed yourself or sampled?
Sorry for skipping you but I'm not sure how to rank this stuff as I'm not very knowledgeable in the genre.
Moonrocks has a really nice guitar tone to it. It's somewhat carefree, but the melody seems meaningful after 1:06. which adds a nice juxtaposition of sorts. Was this home-recorded or studio-recorded, because this sounds great!
On The LaLa Song, the lyrics seem quite interesting while the flow is fast and interesting and ScareCrow's beat works really well against your vocals.
2-track single. Sample-based ambient, melodic and cinematic soundscapes
Here's a little bit of feedback
You're obviously very skilled in electronic music and production, your sound is very tight. Good stuff.
I love how much space you take up in the mix, hardly any empty space. You have a great sound. And the art also matches the sound quite well.
Usually when I see "bedroom" I expect a shitty recording and eq but I love this. It has a very "cabin fever" legitimate bedroom sound to it. I'll take note of that. But yeah, good stuff.
I've said I liked this a lot before. You have a very unsettling sound to say the least.
I love this, I've said it before
I've had your stuff downloaded for a while and it grows on me every listen. Especially your s/t album. Definitely looking forward to some releases this year.
This flows very well. I think the vocal recording could improve a bit more, though, they could be a little more vibrant.
I'm a sucker for things like this. The first track sounds like a much more up front version of the background guitars on the quiet moments of "Bring the Sun" / "Toussaint L'Ouverture" off of Swans latest record.
I liked the first track, but god damn the second one is so well executed, good shit. I love the very South American atmosphere it has to it.
Experimental/Electronic/Rock from NY
stuff that i'm liking so far
>>53027578 me AGAIN
I really liked the synths. They had a subtlety to them, which I feel didn't match the drums to the same degree. Although I feel on the first track the drums may have been the emphasis?
IHOP Group Therapy reminds me a of a lot of Emo I've heard in past years, but in an odd way there's a maturity in the song while keeping the whole song tied up which is really nice.
Sorry for skipping but I can't quite judge the stuff on here.
I loved the production on Pits, as well as the vocals, I'm downloading this, and as sharply-produced acoustic emo stuff as yours is rare. Reminds me of Owen.
P.S. has a really nice rhythm to it, I love the guitar harmonies here, it all adds up to a really brilliant track.
improv II 042714 has some nice drones, pretty clean, which is what a lot of drone rock lacks. Lo-fi to a certain point, which makes the listening experience very much like an Eno ambient track, in that it's performed in the way standard lo-fi rock'd usually be played, but to this ambient/drone degree which is very interesting. Sounded a bit Fripp-esque (minus the effects) towards the third quarter.I preferred improv III 042514. It felt simpler, which is not meant in a bad way at all.
MTB's mixing has a lot to ask for, I own a few of their releases on vinyl, and especially on the electronic stuff there isn't much bass to be found. But I was referring more to the newer sound on Stupid And Weird, where, they seem to have abandoned the Don't Worry sound and gone mainly original. that is somewhat original based off analogue synths and guitar instead of "Andrew WK meets 8-bit". I was wondering if that had any relevance to you due to your obvious interests in chiptune.
Not a new name as such, just a different artist name to identify a different project and differet stye of music. There will be another Witch Tapes album (that I'm working on now) in the next few months though.
>RAW lofi hiphop beats
>also cal chuchesta
first track is a bit trying,but i`m listening to This Is Love and so far im digging it,like a Beefheart/Doors combo.
I liked Tiger Chant and im liking Ms.Zinc.7/10
>art punk,stoner rock
>recently re-re-re-re-re-re(TARDED!)ecorded DEMO,its alriiiight.
Thanks dude Telecom's got a cool industrial vibe the somewhat dissonant bass in the background is a nice touch
This was a very entertaining listen goes straight for the gut diggin it
a few songs im releasing before my debut album.
>metro-ko, downtempo, post-rock
Not mine, but something i want to highly recommend
Batfinks - Stema Tarnyt
It's really experimental and weird.One of my favourite albums. vocals are cheesy though :I
>acoustic, anti-folk, folk punk
Thanks man, They're both a lot of fun to play live.
I really dig Sad Space Mango, You make the quality of the recording work for the song, it really takes you somewhere once you get into it. Ever listen to Beak>? thats what it reminded me of.
Tell him from me if you can that his production style's extremely original and intriguing.
Sunconscious Echoes has some really nice synths playing both the higher end and bass parts. The samples/vocal parts are really nicely mixed in and add a great harmony to the bass/synth parts.
Gloomy Mondeus had a nice glitchy feel to it. I see where your production from about 0:15 comes from, it has a really nice original vibe to it, especially when it gets to 1:06 and goes back at 1:22, I like that.
Versprochen is very nice with the chords it presents and its sound. Your "sound" sounds much better after 3:35. I like your approach to production very much.
Polynia seems as well produced, as it generally does in Macc so a definite recommendation here in terms of effort into production alone. Sounds like a BoC tape track, which still means it has some originality to it, in a lo-fi digital ambient sense. Not to mention the composition.
What are you basing that off? Because personally I'd say I'm quite amateurish
This is stranger that I thought it'd be, which is a compliment. The vocals are definetely very nice, but I feel that around 0:30, the crunchy guitar fades out, which was unfortunately my favourite part. If I'd give you any way to improve, I'd say look at the songs on Guided By Voices album, Motivational Jumpsuit, I feel your style played in that way could make some fantastic music
Graveyard Rockshow has a nice vocal melody. Can you tell me if you'll be expanding your sound at all in the future at all?
I'm not quite sure about this release is but its sounds lie quite nice between chopped-and-screwed beats and normal modern hip-hop. Production is enviable here and is seriously thought about in a way that seems to be combatable to any way that is presented by a challenger from previous years in terms of soundtracks
>Production is enviable here and is seriously thought about in a way that seems to be combatable to any way that is presented by a challenger from previous years in terms of soundtracks
I don't even know what this means but thank you
Soundtracks are something I just got a little confused in tagging. I have some potential soundtracks uploaded privately which played after yours so I basically meant your sound is challengeable in recent releases of the same genre of instrumental hip-hop.
I really enjoy the stuff you've made though it earns respect by itself.
yo thanks for the feedback man, about to check you out
>just released a new track
>kinda like if sonic youth, lydia lunch, and big black had a really ugly untalented heroin addicted child
listening to witchtapes and this is really fucking good dude. at first i thought it was going to be some generic ambient shit but when those bitcrushed drums came in i was pleasantly surprised. only disappointment is that i wish it had more progression.
GET IN HERE AND VOTE FOR THE /MU/ COMPILATION PLENS
awesome stuff and great people
Myself, that is the projects witchtapes.bandcamp.com, irenaeus.bandcamp.com and jeffreymockingbird.bandcamp.com again on this feedback.
This is very interesting, I really like bass on the 2nd track, and I liked the synths and samples.
Your stuff uses guitar in a really interesting way, in ways being emo rock to its fullest but then adding interesting production at the end of Sad Space Mango, which was really cool.
This is a bit more left-field than the stuff I usually listen to. I love the production however. I think the way you put this together is incredibly detailed, which really can't be denied. The vocal samples here are really great. The Bells here are also fantastic, they sound a little bit less loud than the ones on my album, Fairies: irenaeus.bandcamp.com/album/fairies
Dakker is a great electronica-almost-reggae track, this is really weirdly original.
Coffee Eyes is a pretty decent folk-punk track, the chords you put together are pretty nice, but for whatever reason don't really work all that much in the actual mix.
Just listened to Needles and Nightmares, there's quite a bit of reverb on there don't you think? I can't honestly see a balance between the two artists, which is what I generally like to see/hear.
Thanks very much man, the first album, as far as I'm concerned isn't that well produced. Hopefully there'll be a second, better produced album, this spring or summer
I'll make sure to remember to look out for it
This style seems to work for your sound, in my opinion.
That means a lot man, Telecom's one of the tracks I've worked hardest on. Not sure if that's a good or a bad thing.
The second Witch Tapes album is aiming to be even further away from generic ambient shit, but thank you anyway for your feedback. I also wish I could add more progression to the first album, but what's done is done I suppose.
>there's quite a bit of reverb on there don't you think?
hmm.. i don't hear much reverb honestly, i didn't put any on the tracks besides the droning guitar and the vocals.
>I can't honestly see a balance between the two artists
what two artists?
and thanks again for the feedback
>The "I've never listened to Cherry Cardinal Hotel before" starter pack
>not a greatest hits comp. Just my favorites in the CCH canon
new album woo
It's literally just a personal ideal/recommendtion,
I'd advise you lean a small bit from it but move on from any electronic ordeals or issues that include any issues arising with other people in the future; just don't get into our personal affairs, nosey macc forest people.
Mainly a difference between Witch Tapes (since they had a baby coming out) >>53027578 and has a second album coming out in the next year.
Hey man I won't steal shit if you won't.But the weight tricks are becoming easier to steal and run away with. Be careful man! check your men, your men's powders and your men's class that they can do that PARTICULAR trick that you showed MeI cleaned up at least 6 members' spelling)
always dug your stuff but lurked too much to comment about it
>new album, electronic folk for the most part. a lot of it is about a recent trip i had to a rainbow gathering and how i felt miserable then great and back to miserable... that loop lasted the whole time. anyway aside from the story there it'd be great if you'd take a listen :)
oops forgot the album cover
>what i said up there^ :)
Nice, only recommendation is try to find some cooler sounds, some of the stuff sounds like default kits. Mixing and mastering is really good, especially with the vocals.
First off, I'm not hearing any jazz here, free jazz is not just people improvising without chords or time. That said, I like the experimental lo-fi sound on this thing and I think you could do more cool stuff with noise-influenced music. I would almost download it but bluntly, your sampling suck and it ruins the whole vibe for me.
Cool stuff, I think Der Tag danach is my favorite. The others are too one sided in my opinion either too intense the whole time or too light. A great avant garde/noise album for me is one that contains the perfect arrangement of insanity and peacefulness.
>jazz, post bop
>melodic, blown-out portland punk
>my friend calls it 'rainpunk'
this is garbage.
>BROKE AND BAROQUE POP
GET READY FOR THIS SHIT!
thanks for giving it a listen that it means a lot to me, glad you liked it :)
i love collaborating, you can shoot me an email on my bandcamp and see if we can figure something out, and thanks for giving it a listen
>post-rock, shoegaze, doom metal
> Raw Black Metal, dark ambient
aww man thanks man,
yeah I love the cover too,it`s a sheet of metal I saw one day at work so I took a picture of it.
>Post-rock/ Psychedelia/ Ambient
Hey man, thanks for giving so much good feedback to so many people in this thread, not enough people are doing that these days. Listening to Witchtapes because I wasn't sure which of the three to start with so I picked the first one in the list. Telecom is structured really nicely, especially the build in the beginning before the drums come in. The pitchbending and detuning is neat, but I think the track might work better if it was toned down somewhat - that would push things a little further in a pop direction though, which you may be trying to avoid IDK it's your call. This is good in either case.
Jesus your playing and tone is so smooth and cozy I really don't have anything to criticize here it's perfect. Have you tried working with vocals? Some whispery, reverby vocals might work with this but seriously it's great as it is. Downloaded. Also points for making it free that's a cool dude thing to do man
>lofi, indie, folk, ambient, bedroom pop, noise
>label, cassettes, handmade with love
>the one on the left is a compilation of a bunch of artists (lots of different genres), the one in the middle is me (folk) and the one on the right is an album by a noise/ambient artist named Jack McConnell
>experimental solo garage/blues/punk rock
finally got that shit uploaded.
Good morning! RI:SA here.
The title of the first track made me laugh, I made an avant-garde/cybergrind album with my friend many years ago that ended with a similarly titled song: http://www.last.fm/music/mit%C3%A4/lo+EP
The start of the second track reminds me of some "weird finland"-bands, like Kemialliset Ystävät: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pk59vw3X-A
Irenaeus' Fairies has some good moments. Good blend of minimalistic IDM and trip-hop. Sluagh Sídhe, Sublunary Lovers and Gawain stood out.
Easily one of the best things I've heard in these threads production-wise. Those terrifying pads in The Chicken and the Chalk are beautiful. Don't know if you have already, but you should make an all-ambient album. Wasteland and Nothing, ever shows you know how to make that "dungeon synth"-like deep sound.
>Dave, it's as good as ever. I've nothing much to say that I've not already said but that your production has always has a great deal of "savvy" to it, that is, you seem to be very knowledgeable with the process of producing electronic music.
MY FUCKING SIDES
Concept album about the sounds, thoughts and feelings that come with a sleepless night in the city.
