>>61685824 Okay, this sounds promising. I like that shoegaze-y vibe to this track. And I believe this is a good start. I will keep my eye on your EP. The only thing that I have problem with is volume. The guitar feels too loud for me but I guess it's a really small adjustment, not a big problem.
>>61685824 >https://beachweather666.bandcamp.com/album/going-nowhere I can imagine how dreamy and beautiful this would be to hear live. The long build-up was almost a little much until the other parts came in, especially the "breathy" percussion, that's a great touch. The vocals are just a little muddy but in the context of the piece they rest in the mix very comfortably as the genre demands. The lead guitar bit that comes in later was very warm and pretty. Overall, this gives me hope for the new EP, kudos man. Simplicity executed like this is always charming, and from one lo-fi artist to another, I can dig it.

>>61686645 Some of the lyrics leave a lot to be desired, but I think that style is pretty popular now adays. Anyway it's good stuff, I wish you took yourself a bit more seriously. At least enough to get out of lofi. These songs would reach a much wider audience if only you recorded properly
>>61687090 This sounds promising as hell but it's too long for any normal review to come out from me. But I believe that I'll like it. If I would come across you and would have a chance to listen to this fully then I'll give you a more or less a review of some sorts. But I like the first track anyway!
>>61686857 Really radio-friendly sound. I'm not digging that at all but mostly because I'm an arctic caveman waiting for the world to become more then shadows. But I really have to admit that you can crank up a very nice melody! And a well fit compositions which is always a OK in my book. And I'm surprised that this is recorded on a 8 track - it sounds really really nice at times. I'm sure this is a way for you guys, send it all around, somebody will embrace it. You have a really nice sounding recording - and that's most important!
>>61686206 This is great. Beleaguered is a big step up from the previous album. I enjoy the wide panning and I'll be downloading this to listen to while I study.
>>61686346 this is very promising, the vocals aren't exactly my taste but that's not saying there's anything wrong with them. My only suggestion is to sit farther away from the mic when you record guitar because I can hear the pick in the background (that probably just bothers me because it pisses me off when I hear it in my recordings lol). Other than that good job!
>>61687484 >>61686439 What parts exactly do you guys feel are too loud? Just the guitar? Also do you think I should reduce treble and bring up low end? I listened in my car and heard little to no low end EQ.
>>61687536 Thanks man! I'll be touching up/tracking more vocals and doing some more guitar tracking later today so those things will be taken care of in the final mix. I actually heard the picking in your piece too but honestly I find it endearing in other people's work.
I'm mostly posting it here to see if the writing stands out to people, to be honest, I was going for something a little more riffy/catchy/raw with this piece, was hoping that came across.
>>61687615 I believe this is only a matter of scaling down a volume on a guitar a bit. I don't know exactly what seems to be a problem but my speakers are getting that problem of the foreground being too loud in comparison to the background. Sure, you can reduce treble and see how it goes. How can I put it... It feels like noise shoegaze. But not really all that pleasant
>>61687760 >https://skydivedubai.bandcamp.com/ I'm listening to the ATMOS album right now and, this may sound odd, but it reminds me of what Imagine Dragons could be if they were more forward-thinking and focused on experimentation rather than accessibility. The mixing is phenomenal, I'm a huge fan of the arpeggiations used and the particular timbres (especially some of what sound like saws though they may just be razor-sharp and gritty pads, I'm not sure). Wish the percussion came in a bit earlier in "dive", I loved it.
But "the atmosphere" made up for what I was wanting more of in the intro track. Reverb on the vocals is delicious, and I love the vocal overdubbing. Very pretty progressions.
>>61687090 >https://lostsaltbloodpurges.bandcamp.com/ The album cover compelled me to listen and I was far from disappointed. Evocative as hell, a refreshing mix of dissonance and atmosphere so far, definitely bookmarking. I'm only 3/4 of the way through Oneiric at the moment but I'm sure I'm in for a treat.
>>61687090 Wait I remember you! The Voids We All Long For was one of my favorite albums last year! Excellent to see you haven't lost your touch. I've made it some ways through Only The Youngest Grave and I'm in love with the direction. The chants are visceral in nature, and the guitarwork/pianowork delicate as always. Stunning album from you, friend.
>>61687951 A bit of hate first. Oh God, this is something eerie familiar in a lot of ways. Oh, I remember it sounds exactly the same as a lot of IDM-esque guys! That's my only real criticism to be honest. Which is really a shame. I wanted to be surprised with some hook, something of your own. But I can only see copy after copy of the same ideas over and over... But the production is well. The timing of the tracks are really pleasant. It kept me going despite that "same-ish" style. I look forward to your next release, hopefully less influenced by other anons and focused on your own mentality and ideas!
>>61688318 >https://soundcloud.com/srealtft/sreal-worthit Your vocals are great as always, man, super pretty <3 Fuuuuuck the bass is siiiiick though, I love it. Your production game was always strong but this is a new level for you. Kudos.
>>61688632 I'm doing the same thing in terms of writing and production so I feel ya, man! You're definitely making strides though, it shows. Not that you even really fucking needed it though I mean even your earlier work is pristine as hell, haha.
No rush on getting back to me on my stuff, I'm kinda used to getting overlooked in these threads so it's no biggie, but I guarantee you're gonna like it if you do check it :)
>>61689519 Okay it's cool you guys keep reccing me, but is anyone reading my post? I'm looking for feedback on the writing. Recs are cool and all but that's not why I posted my track here, and I don't mean to sound ungrateful, but simply saying "rec" doesn't give me any indication that you listened, or tell me what you enjoyed, what you didn't, or address any of the things I asked to be addressed in my initial post. I'd rather be completely ignored, honestly. I know it sounds bitter but this happens every time I post here. I give detailed/semi-detailed responses to a good majority of the thread and all I get is empty recs and maybe one or two instances of feedback (usually about aspects of my music I wasn't even asking for feedback on). Can we please go back to the days where everyone gave detailed feedback and returned it when given it? They were real, I was there. I know I sound like a colossal douche and it's not something I mean personally against anyone in particular it's just a problem that's been going on for a while and I wanna see it fixed.
But I'll check your stuff out, too, man and I do appreciate the gesture of reccing me. I figure even if I don't get what I came here for I still get to hear some rad music, so I'm listening and will be back with feedback.
>>61689738 Like I said it's not you in particular, I don't want anyone to take personal offense, it's just, if you're reccing it, there's obviously SOMETHING you liked about it that you can put into at least a simple, brief sentence, right? That probably sounds condescending but like I said, it's not a statement about you in particular, just a general feeling in these threads.
>>61689606 I like the textures used throughout, the melodies are interesting if a bit formless, and the percussion has a nice crunch to it. The composition seems a little chaotic, like the timbres and modes you're using would demand more direction melodically, although with the addition of vocals I could see the composition being fine as-is; the kick back in at 3:16 is dope and I could hear a cool vocal part coming in there too, maybe a layered choir effect?
Definitely a strong start, and do take my opinion with a grain of salt as I'm not incredibly versed in electronic music. You seem to know what you want for your style so don't allow me to detract you; fine-tuning, however, never hurts. I see good things for you.
>>61689519 Mirroring my statement to the guy above, take what I say with a grain of salt, as I'm not versed in this genre. Listening to the newer release "reap (what you've sewn)" I'm encountering an example of what I was trying to tell the other guy to emulate. Simple progressions with compelling layering, again, interesting timbres. This has solid direction and I dig it. Choices in percussion, particularly the shake-hat on Opacity catches my attention. The wubby bass parts are nifty, kind of dub-esque. Trancy synths. Yeah, this is solid. Again, I'd like to hear some vocals but as a vocalist I'm always imagining vocal parts so do with that what you will. Good stuff, mang.
>>61686346 The songwriting on Quarry To My Conscience: Relapsus is very well done. Each transition really keeps you listening. But what I love most from you is your album Lovelace from 2015. The instrumentals are so warm on every single track and the arrangements are all wonderful too.
thanks for the kind words! very thrilled someone could feel this way about my tunes. made my day :)
your tunes, damn! makin me feel some evil vibes. 'deciever' has some really tight, curnchy drums and the vocals sit great over everything. 'quarry to my conscious' has some really solid psych chops happening. very nice music, art, and overall presentation of material. definitely deserves more recognition.
>>61690019 Fuck I didn't realize people even remembered Lovelace, thanks man. That album is very personal for me, but god damn I hate the decisions I made production wise on it. Glad someone appreciates it, though, thank you. And thank you for listening to Quarry, that one is also very personal as it's a musical adaptation of a poem my father wrote. Coming from a musician of your caliber it's quite an honor to hear you enjoyed it.
Did you, by chance, listen to the song I posted in this thread that I was looking for feedback on? I hate to sound like a broken record but I'm really trying to get a feel for what people think of it in particular, I'm past everything else at this point.
>>61690048 "Evil" is what this album, or at least the first half is all about, so I'm fuckin' doin' something right, I guess, haha. Thank you. Your feedback is much appreciated, and I'm glad the weaknesses in production weren't too much of a deterrent for you. I'm glad my vision is at least somewhat shining through it all.
>>61690077 Well the drums sound really nice and punchy when they come in. Also the background ambiance Is a good touch too. I don't think any part sounds too repetitive. It's sounds pretty good already for a "rough demo"
