this one is fresh!
i'll listen to and leave feedback on the first 5 or 6 people to post at least, if not more.
this doesn't mean that nobody else should listen and give feedback. in fact, it mean you should all try to leave feedback for someone.

Hell, I will go first then. Since I've listened to some tracks on your new release I'm save to say that your stuff is "meh". It's not bad; the compositions are certainly really flashy, weird and beep boops are all the way. I kinda like how it is mixed with some aesthetics of more progressive genres; the shifts in progression and sound get me on to listen to you more. But the production completely broke my immersion. It seems your stuff is without a kick, sounding really empty which was worrying. There isn't certain amount of excitement and while I would say whole thing sounds good in out of it self it loses something in me. It is nihilistic, it certainly feels flashy but also it sounds like a background noise rather then a music which I would listen to on my audio system any time soon. Production seems to be a problem for me but I don't know. It certainly feels flat for me. But don't take my word for granted - I tend to avoid electronic music which sounds a'la progressive house/trance and stuff like that so I'm not the best judge...
Hey, there is something with bit more potential. I like that composition style, that fluidness of your work. It certainly feel well put together and thought out. But for no reason at all I HATE that production style. I think guitar is too loud so it makes my ears bleed and scream in panic. Maybe I expect my post rock to be a bit more blurry but that clean production is not good, at least for me. But yeah, the album is superb and I would pay for it. But this screeching guitar make my head numb and it's no fun at all when you get tired after just couple of tracks. But yeah, keep going with that. I believe there is a lot of potential in this idea!
really liking the cut of the drums in the mix of the first song. even when the rest picks up, it all comes through very clearly. a few spots are hard to make out whats going on past the ride, (around 3min) changeup at 3:40 is killer, i'm a sucker for drum parts like this. bringing it all back around was cool, the bass is really well done.
not as much a fan of the second song, it just didn't really say much to me that i haven't heard.
really love the idea of this, i've done some playing around with stuff like this before. it appears more overwhelming that it needs to be, were there no points which you thought could have been separation points? also would have enjoyed it more with some panning and layering. only about halfway through, i'll post again when i'm done.
Well, it's certainly a noise EP, can't argue with that. I got intrigued by that raw data setup and you didn't disappoint in that regard. But then again that's really it, isn't it? Raw data spliced together to make layers of noise... I don't say I felt cheated, you've clearly stated that yourself. But I wouldn't go all in on this idea next time. Why? Because hundreds of noise-wannabies are using the same technique and they tend to use Audacity for maximum laziness and tendencies of being "too hip" for normal music. There should be more flesh in noise, I believe. And on your EP I can only see solid bones but not much else.
Okay, I like that one. Maybe not love it but like it. I certainly has a nice vibe which is always a good thing in my book. The beats are solid, the samples well put together, it's well on instrumental part, all flows very well into each other. My only one complain would be that this piece of music could use a bit more variety, just a tiny bit more.
Klaunska is awesome, sounds like slint with balkan brass influences.
This is nice, reminds me a but of sun araw.
If you're gonna make it this compositionally stale you can might as well add some textural variation, I mean come on now.
not my kind of music, so im not really THE person to give critique but i listened to 4 songs, and didn't even notice they were finished, meaning they were ok. favs: my fear to know and i am bees.
nice. dreamy chilly space rock/pop. great production and the music reminds me of all kind of things - from video game music to chillout stuff. fav: the outer reach
now this is some really great stuff. loving the atmosphere and production. well put together. the delay ambient sound is spot on, not like with some delay abusers.
thanks for the feedback. our production is basically shit, and i know that. the thing is, we recorded and mixed this all by ourselves (not in a pro-studio, but in our garage where we rehearse) with no previous experience.
so i'm trying the short one because i'm trying to help the old of listening to the whole song at least. headpones fell of for a bit at the first but i didn't feel like i missed much. it's getting pretty interesting now though. was that a harmonica? no? sounded like one i dig. barely noticed all the time passing with this one.
>If you're gonna make it this compositionally stale you can might as well add some textural variation, I mean come on now.
I guess you're right but, in a way, it's more of an experiment on drone as a whole. It may come as not really fleshed out or textually varied but so is meditation music in most cases.
Now that we are out of the way of all of this let me tell you why your stuff is... good. Now first of all that post-structuralism tag make me giggle. In what way your music represents that idea? Pretentious? But beside of that tag I kinda like what you're doing here and there. It's upbeat, it's loud, it feels bouncy in places which is rather pleasing. As a shithead in textural variation (hopefully you've listened to my music as long as I've given yours time) I would say that you generally manage that stuff well. But also, I feel that some of your tracks are a bit empty in a background - better look on that aspect. And I can safely say that in large parts of your music your tracks are too loud. There should be a moment of silence, something to break the repetitive loudness volume of all of the tracks which seems to be on the same level. That's about it.
Thanks for listening! I used modified clarinet, synthesizers and some modulated brass and woodwind instruments. Sadly, no harmonica on this one
>fake OST from a fake 80s movie starring Ezio Greggio
>if you don't know who Ezio Greggio is, i'm feeling bad for you
first song was nice, only thing i didn't like that much was the pitched snare runs.
second song introduced vocals in a way that i don't enjoy. but the song was over before i was done typing this so now i'm on the third song and i'm ok with it. i do agree with the other guy that parts of this are kinda too much louder than the rest of the song.
i don't really watch a lot of movies so i'm not sure how this should feel for sure? also not huge into vapourwave.
here's my worthless two cents.
feels like the actors would need to be yelling to be hear over this first song. the sound is so enveloping. the second track is much nice on the ears. i like the little bits of cutting out parts of the beat.
Thank you for your well thought out evaluation of my work! The only thing I dislike about it is the use of the word "pretentious", as I feel like it's nothing but a meme buzzword intended to stifle creativity, but I appreciate your post nonetheless.
Considering how low effort this is I find it surprising that you haven't been able to produce more releases since May last year.
I guess the samples are good but the whole thing is way too muddy and distorted for my taste.
I guess it's creative for what it is but it's not something I would listen to.
Fair enough, thank you for the feedback.

>psychedelic folk/noise/ritual ambient/jazz/drone/stuff
>Considering how low effort this is I find it surprising that you haven't been able to produce more releases since May last year
part of why is because i'm trying to not have such "low effort" music, also haven't even had much success making songs that fit well with each other.
(actually wait i have a shit load of effortless bs on my soundcloud fuck)
hi, the muddy and distorted effect were the effect that i wanted to give to the tracks. I wanted not only to do something vaporwave but also give it a very bad quality like an old cassette lost somewhere in your car, that could fix ok to a real bad italian 80s movies, that if you ever watched any of them you can see how poorly they are. It's more a parody of that style

Here's my Bandcamp, and my new single that's on SC which I hope that you'll check out.
It's been a while since I wrote here, or uploaded music.
This new single called "Worth It" has some Toronto vibes, over "trappier" production than what I've previously done.

Feedback? I'm just enjoying listening to it. Personally there are some things I would do differently... but that's just taste more than anything. Overall you have a really solid release (hahah like thick semen).
Fantastic work. I will continue to listen and enjoy myself.

My Recs so far:
I can't remember if you've commented on my stuff yet but hey it's cool you actually provide some in depth feedback
I like the music, your vocals are definitely unconventional but they’re kind of endearing. Maybe work on singing, but overall good stuff.
Your vocals sound kind of tepid and should probably be mixed higher. The music has a nice neo-psych vibe, very Mercury Rev.
I love this song
>synthpop, dance, funk
>”Dance music for people who can't dance. I ain't never heard such awkward lumpy rhythms before.”

I don't know. Noisepop/digital noiserock. First track. worked on this while backpacking around Scandinavia
really enjoyed this

Cassettes are out now from Cellar Door Tapes. 5$ for one! Check it out. I'll also be selling them at my show tonight with Wished Bone and tomorrow night with Drekka.
I assumed you liked it? Thanks for the feedback even if you didn't
Well I already moved on in my soundcloud, doing tons of other stuff now, i'm planning to do a glitch album
That's cool, it was just an experiment I did in August and fully finished a month ago

Single from my upcoming album Quarry To My Conscience, Vol. II: Relapsus set to release through Burn Ward Records.
Buttons available here:
Will be checking out those of you with whom I'm not already familiar. Stay gloomy, folks.
This is our most recent release as a duo, a 'mini-LP' with songs from 2013 and 2014 that was recorded and came out in 2015.
>noisy/sludgy alternative rock
We recorded an album over the summer with two other members which is being mixed currently (it's a slow process but it'll sound great) that is gonna' come out in the first half of this year most likely. AND we have another album that was recorded in these last couple of weeks that should be out maybe in the last half of this year. We'll see.
I've been up to a lot of music stuff recently, one of the guys that was on the 'summer' album and I are recording an album together sometime, and I'm in another band with him as well which has been working on a full length.
Check out BIRCH BARKS and Joplin Rice on bandcamp
>electronic, instrumental hip hop, fuzzy, scifi
Fuck all y'all
almost perfect except for the last track titled "solar" was bad though. the main high range synth is annoying on this one track.
edgy. your bait worked i guess because i listened
This Is Not Utopia - II (Metalcore from Germany)
I'm guessing lyrically this is kind of a joke... it's too insincere to have appeal as a freestyle. the beats are cool, but not too memorable, the atmosphere is dope though
I only listened to Post, but it's really good and I ought to listen to more later
it took me a bit to like both the lyrics, voice and music, but I think I really like them all after all. unique style and good production. I don't really hear any of the genres you mention other than hip hop, though. maybe goth? I sort of see what you're getting at with doom I guess
First, I love the album cover. I only listened to the first four minutes, and found it well produced and texturally interesting. however, it wasn't evocative and near the end of those four minutes the increased consonance and crescendo made it sound a little sappy to me
aesthetically this is right up my alley; reminds me of sensational or lucky dragons. it's not great, but it's cool and trippy
cool music video I guess, not too engaging music or lyrics though
I don't like the production much- I don't know shit about production but maybe it's too compressed? I didn't really find much interesting about the music either.
nice production and atmosphere. I like your voice too. The riff's pretty good but gets a little repetitive after a bit. I wouldn't really consider math rock, although it would lend itself to becoming math rock if it only it were mathier. the only thing I dislike about it is the synths and maybe that there's too much reverb
really good ideas, but I wish the production was more immersive somehow. at first I thought the repeated chord was too "normal" to be of much interest over time, but it grew on me (didn't listen to all of it, as a side note, so this may just refer to the first ~half)

Bumping the hell out of this old thread
I wanted to take this seriously but I could only picture opie doing the vocals. Kuhn Poker was pretty tight though.
About to do a new release which I think is my best so far so posting this in case anyone is interested.
>sad girl feels
I've spent two years on these 5 songs. I've written recorded mixed and mastered all myself. I'd love to hear what you think of the first song! It releases officially Jan. 11! Free guitar tabs if you preorder!
Check out a guitar play through here.
listened to Hot Dog really good intro on that song, extremely tight playing. Fantastic Soloing, really good mixing throughout the track. Very, very solid track here.
Listened to Smoke and Mirror first, loving the drums, like the guitar, the vocals sound nice but aren't really my thing. This is well put together. Also listened to Talk, still liking the drums, really the guitar tone on this track. I noticed an improvement on the production between Smoke and Mirror and Talk, keep up the good work.
Listened to The Flyover first, very crisp production, liking the strings and the vocal sounding synth in the background. Also listened to Oscillate Me, loved the intro, very nice. Whatever you're using for synth software, keep using it, these pads sound amazing, plenty of detail in the sound. Downloaded.
listened to the Wedding first, neat music concrete intro, nice depth when the music finally kicks in. I'm guessing since this is vaporwave you're usin samples? like the hint of distortion, cool saxophone. Listened to UFO sighting as well, very thick, very cool, shit was pretty spooky, I like the shifts as the song progresses.
First I listed to Boredom Leads to the Bottle, love the vocals, absolutely love them. Nice break from the usual stuff in these threads, very well put together track. Listened to Xanax and Cigarettes as well, if I had to be critical, I don't like the fade in, but otherwise the track is pretty good, liking the lyrics a lot. I really like the guitar tone in this song. Phenomenal work.
I'm not crazy about the production to be honest, but as far as Punk goes this is pretty damn legit. I just listened to the whole thing, consistent throughout, I'd like it a lot more if the mix wasn't so quiet. Still enjoyed it quite a bit though.
>>61564401 <-- Favorite ITT
Gonna give this a listen later. Seems interesting judging from the first two tracks.
Is the rest of the album gonna be like this, because I am really enjoying this track so far.
Well, I'll answer that question by saying that in my discography of 5 albums so far, only one of them had a consistent style genre-wise. So maybe? It depends on which aspects you're talking about; a few tracks will feature some of the kind of "urban" melancholy feel, but a lot of it is going to focus on doom metal and atmosphere. The only thing I can comfortably tell you for sure is that it's going to be full of surprises :)

hey man, thanks for listening my music, i used a lot of samples from youtube videos.
The intro to Empty Hands was great but the meat of all the songs is super generic. There were a couple really abrupt tempo shifts that i appreciated for the variety they added but overall I wasn't that impressed. It wasn't actively bad but it wasn't great either.
The guitaring on this is fucking fanfuckingtastic. I don't really like the drum production, it feels very robotic compared to how full of life the guitar is. The low end feels a little empty, like the bass isn't high enough in the mix most of the time. I still fucking love it though.
>One Man Band
Thanks for checking out hot dog! I checked out some of your ep. I think you have some great ideas going on there. I thought the vocals were a little on the loud side and could use some post processing. Music is solid, my concern is mostly mix-wise. I could do a master on one of the songs for free if you are interested!
Thanks for the constructive criticism! Glad you are digging the track! I'll definitely reevaluate the low end on hot dog and get some last minute mix and master polishing before the official release on Monday! Hopefully you'll check out the rest of the songs on Monday if you are into hot dog!
(I'm the gulls)
Thanks for some realistic feedback, thank you for the offer as well but I think I'm all set, I might do a remix anyway as I'm always looking to improve my production skills, mixing vocals is still my weakest skill.
>indie, ambient, gaze
[spoiler]don't take my critique too serious if you're not serious about your music and its impression on random strangers[/spoiler]
fascinating sound. you got my attention but booooring chords in the chorus. why no stereo? engineer asleep? would buy this if it was in stereo
quit music now
decent.. none of you know how to keep in time
way too simplistic but good songs and lyrics, you could probably take this somewhere
many of the tracks are absolute dog ass, fuck you for getting me intrigued and making me listen to them
quit music now
[spoiler]I don't judge vaporwave badly on a whim, your stuff just sucks, especially that clipping[/spoiler]
zzzzzz... wait what? not boring drone/shoegaze? I love this. good soundscapes and great guitar playing mate, would definitely buy a cassette of this, but fuck off with the noisy parts and control your god damn levels
why no stereo
>bad bandcamp access
>"the third track"
go fuck yourself
decent stuff, are you trying to kill me with those levels?
>members don't know how to play in time
go fuck yourselves
no stereo.. getting REAL tired of this meme
great singing and lyrics
> Acoustic jam rock
Here's another artist from my home studio, 10Bels. A little more mellow than my personal ep I posted earlier in the thread but I really enjoyed working with Jeremy.
Here are some play throughs for the 2 songs as well!
wow. good stuff. not a huge fan of the style but i get the idea, it's a good idea and you've got everything going in the right direction. 15 years ago this would have been tearing people up [spoiler]don't take that as an insult[/spoiler]
needs more material for a purchase
good bass playing
really want to like this but too much white noise bullshit
mix your guitars lower
eat fucking shit
put out a cassette. fantastic.
learn to control your levels you fucking retard
good stuff. tell your engineer to take it easy on the low-mids, you're not a sludge band
good stuff, terrible stereo placement
quit music now
no stereo!!!!!!!!! good songs
no stereo, bad
great stereo placement, good songs, good lyrics, too much bass. Love your stuff
Go fuck yourselves you pretentious bastards
VERY good stuff, put out a cassette
good guitar tones but your engineer is a fucking retard. too much compression, music is barely listenable because of that
your vocals suck no one will ever like your music
>(inb4 inevitable contrarians)
if you just quit music now it will increase your chances of getting laid by 1000%. you are 10x more likely to get laid if no one knows about your music
>New York Shit

very very good, will be keeping an eye on you
quit music now
fuck this is bad
no engineer? are you high constantly?
singing is painfully bad
good synth ideas but you need way more practice, stop cluttering up bandcamp until then
Engineer is asleep on this one
Really good stuff, you guys are cohesive. I'm not even a fan of the style but you're convincing as fuck
quit music now
Oh god! So fucking bad it's good, would buy a cassette just for the fucking rush of it
WHY THE FUCK is everything 35% to the left?
no stereo, good lyrics, bad songs
quite "quit music now"-core
no stereo, good vox, fun stuff going on here
quit music now
what a fresh breeze. very very good, I like you
quit music now
good stuff, needs engineer
quit music now
fuck off with your shitty paulstretch experiments and try to make an actual track, be it drone or not
and stop fucking with my ears
bad stereo, engineer is asleep
good gazey stuff
Care to do a little recap putting all of them in little ?/? boxes
It tells really good to have someone say you're better than someone else
(You didn't even gave me a good review but whatever)
Cassette (and pin) I got from one of the bands on here
I've been getting email notifications about your releases, but I've been busy as shit this break. I'm listening now and The Devil Shook the Boat sounds awesome so far.
This reminds me of me, but with more low-end static. It's a little lacking in development for the lengths (in my own personal taste), but I'm digging it. The sheer volume of BWR still baffles me sometimes.
I'm eager to hear more from you! I enjoy your stuff.
To everyone else, there is an accompanying video for Frost that I enjoyed along with it. Call me a fanboy, but Rest You Sleeping Giant makes some pretty awesome stuff.
Your tags got me to click your link, but this doesn't fit my definition of ambient. I am disappoint. Synaptic doesn't sound terrible, though.
Very Eno-esque and very cool. I dig it! You have a knack to have progressions that make me feel pretty reflective like I would when listening to Stone in Focus or An Ending (Ascent). I gave you a follow and I'll try to keep track of your stuff. It seems like my Gmail is always swarmed with releases.
>noise, ambient, experimental
Really interesting stuff hope to see more of it in the future
Going to be real i found it fairly repetitive without any low end on it, i would add some reverb and maybe w=switch around the track a bit
I LOVE jam stuff like this
I didn't know you went on here my dude
(i like the stuff)
I feel like you need to compress your bass drum more often, it becomes over baring in a few of your songs
this is me
this was really psychedelic. the guitar was excellent!
listened to the first track and it was really great, I'm gonna check out more of your stuff :)
I really like this track, it was really weird and really made me pay attention to it with it's originality
the lead guitar tone reminds me a lot of Interpol but the rhythm guitar gives it this metal drive to it, I like this a lot! I like how the vocals seem to emerge from behind this wall of guitars and carry this real desperation. Gonna check out more of your stuff :)
wow I love your guitar work, and I luv me some post punk with drum machines. I listened to Post and I was really impressed with the atmosphere you create. Your vocals complement this atmosphere well.
this is really good. your stuff reminds me of some of the better Black Flag songs but that's probs because I was listening to them earlier today. The guitar tone on Kuhn Poker was excellent and reminded me of some of the sounds Steve Albini would make with his guitar with Big Black.
this is me
really love the drumming on The Lorax and the guitar was really catchy. Also the mouse was really cute and 100%
the guitar definitely reminded me of Slowdive and the backing vocals really helped with the atmosphere. really great stuff here
sooooo much atmosphere. the droning sounds really draw the listener in and lead them to the insides of their mind. Keep it up :)
thanks for the feedback :3 listened to Alien House and it was pretty cool. I really dig your synths and the drums were really nice.

I really just want Hater-chan to bumrush me and tell me I suck dog dick. I bet he's an artist who post frequently and is afraid people would tear into his stuff. But I bet they wouldn't. I bet his stuff is pretty good.
this is me
pretty good brotendo, really love the chillness of your vocals. The Owl sounds like if The Gift was 2 minutes and the riff sounded like Sweet Jane instead and it's pretty cool. Adulthood was weird but hey so it adulthood as in the real life thing. I really dug the synths?brass? that opens up Satan. The backing vocals throughout Dashboard and Police Officer were glorious. overall this EP is pretty darn good. THUMBS UP :D :D :D
Here are all of the releases he said were terrible with no feedback. I'm trying to find a common theme... maybe he's the exact opposite of me.
I'm way too full of myself to pity myself desu senpai. Normally people react the other way and are successfully baited into listening. Here, just for you, a big long overwhelmingly positive review someone wrote of my stuff. http://theheavyaesthete.tumblr.com/post/135475952543/the-antioch-antioxidant-accident-heart-eraser
Thanks for your feedback. I think your right on your part. We´ll try to better the generic parts in the next album.
Thanks man ! What do you mean with "engineer fell asleep?" What exactly do you not like about the recording ?
I'm only a bit into the first track but I'm in love with the concept and the sounds are incredibly lush so far. Will tell you what I think of the whole thing when I'm done, but it's pleasant so far.
No problem,man. I really dig this. Your choice in the first track to place the synths in the high-range and the lead lower tonally creates a very deep and warm vibrancy throughout the piece, as I said, "lush" is an apt word to describe this. The way the lead just kind of glides through the synth progression as opposed to soaring above it tonally is very comforting and evokes a warming, euphoric sensation, which I'm guessing was the intent given the theme. And the keys towards the end, while somewhat free-form, still create a lucid dream-like quality much like the feeling of falling in love.
I'm halfway through the second track now, and I'm fond of the tonal shift from the first; rich, ghost-like low-end synths I can really get behind. Your choice of timbres is exceptional, I'd love to have tones like this myself.
I'm always here to give support to unique artists and those who deserve praise, man. Your work is beautiful, I've bookmarked the album for future listens. I thoroughly enjoyed the full album and anticipate further releases from you.
LSBP guy here. Thanks for the casual feedback. Sorry you didn't like the noise (not sorry tho), but volume levels and dynamics were created purposefully to all sound even on the same volume. If it gets too loud at some points, you're probably just listening to it too loudly. The dynamic range was created very meticulously with the listener's needs in mind (nothing I hate more than needing to adjust the volume constantly when listening to an album).
