last one has one feet on the grave. here's a new one for you.
My debut release, I spent a long time working on this. Enjoy.
don't say you'll return feedback. give feedback and link your bandcamp. then hope others will return the feedback
NEW ALBUM OUT NOW!
>influences from ambient,avant folk,shoegaze and emo
>two post punk tracks
>one Oh Comely inspired track
>for fans of Giles Corey,HANL,Teen Suicide,The Microphones
Easily my best work yet and I’d say it’s way better than my previous album,Tired of Me. I hope you enjoy and I’d love to get your feedback.
It's not all that bad, the album cover is beautiful and I like the fat guitar tone a lot, but I do however feel like it could use some more variation as you use more or less the same chord progression throughout the entire album, and it definitely needs more of the juicy distorted parts and less of the shitty clean noodling, because let's face it, you're a terrible guitarist.
shut the fuck up

ouch that last bit hurt
the chord prog is more or less the same throughout with exceptions of tracks 3 and 4 because (incoming pretentious shit) the album was meant to be a concept album in the most abstract sense. i have no lyrics and i have no other instruments, the only way i can really create that sense of cohesiveness is by playing similar chord progressions throughout.
my next release will be entirely different, expect absolutely no metal and very little drone.
i listened to the first two movments. i enjoyed Eighth Angel but i just feel like it draged on for too long tho the way it ended was kinda nice and refreshing and i dont think i would've felt that if the noisy guitar hadn't gone for so long wich then favors The Descension wich gives the big burst much more impact tho i feel this one, too, drags for too long but in this track that time feel like its needed to fully flesh out the song, unlike Eighth Angel. might check out the rest of the album later.
i listened to the early years (sweet name dude). nicklebackbient (great name) has a really chill vibe to it and yet it has a lot of interesting sounds scattered all around it, it also has a good dynamics without going overboard with them. on pretend weekend is great how the melody shifts through the song and at the end come back to the starting point. cool sounds from hell (this thing is full of awsome names) would be my favorite track if not for the "boing" sounds in the begining (i don't know if im making myself clear here but whatever) it does really pick up by the second half a lot, wich is great. intestinal exorcism guaranteed is good but it gets boring by the end, thankfully it is a very short track. cool album all around.
>industrial hip hop, electronic
> psychedelic rock
> post rock
> experimental rock

Throwing a bunch of noise into a track isnt music
Gay as shit
Gay as shit as well
Shittiest voice I've heard in a while with bullshit instrumentals
You're a bunch of faggots
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.
I return all feedback!
>pretentious sound collage
I can't listen to any of you people's stuff because Im in transit and don't have any headphones
>ambient, piano, experimental
>available on Spotify
"Porno" is pretty interesting, I like this kind of music.
Really cool cover art. Music is also very good. Deep and atmospheric - the way I like it.
I would only consider Eighth angel as ambient for a darker bar kind of scene, or maybe that kind of party.
Fucking around with the 12th fret on an electric for the first part of the song makes it sound like you're tuning up for the first 1:30.
You need to ask yourself if you would listen to your music on a regular day compared to the music you already listen to. If you wouldn't back to the sound board. if you would, publish. The most honest person on the planet will be the person looking back from the mirror. If you need to ask other people for approval/opinions consistently, it won't do you any good.
Reminiscent of free form jazz but much more abstract. You would be the abstract expressionist of music, and that can be taken two ways.
Not what I'm into so meh, and this work seems too abstract to judge, as in "its better than before", but that's just me. In essence, you do you.
First bandcamp song I listened to that I didn't stop after 2:00, I liked Savior however:
I wouldn't recommend putting "name your price" it shows a lack of confidence, I would recommend practicing English pronunciation so it comes through clearer, diversifying lyrics but not trying too hard when it comes down to it.
Some of the song names seem generic to me as well, I know you can do better if you can make the tracks the way you do.
I can imagine Reload the Clip in a horror music video kind of thing, as well as in an under ground club/DJ with drugs every two steps you take. Liked it, took a generic beat and made it your own.
How many songs should I write for a first release if I'm an aspiring musician?
I just want to start out with simple feel good songs, then hopefully if my head is screwed on straight I can study Music Theory beyond what I teach myself.
one man band, every release is different
>depressive black metal
>I liked Savior
>I wouldn't recommend putting "name your price" it shows a lack of confidence
i want as many people as possible to download it but if they also want to give me money then ya sure
>I would recommend practicing English pronunciation so it comes through clearer
it's a deliberate erusure-esque euro drawl, not my real accent dummy.
>Some of the song names seem generic to me as well
obvious =/= generic, young thug is for example not a generic name even though it's an obvious one.
yo i'm gay, hit my line.
I about to move on to a new project but to really close up things with my last one I'd like to sell out of all the cassettes for my last one first. The cassette is my first two EPs together as one package. I'm not sure if or when I'll return to this project but for the time being it's done.
I released another mini EP after the one that's out on cassette so be sure to check that out.
Thank you for all the love and support and god bless.

This is very melodic and interesting but it could really use some mastering.
Damn, this is some good stuff I can really hear the OPN influence in your work.
I'm not really sure what to categorize this as, I'm not even sure if this is for me, but i can recognize the hard work and talent that went into this piece
I meant generic, not obvious. Generic as in, I've seen it lambasted in songs, as song titles, in pop music, over a trillion times so when I see song titles like that I begin losing interest. Maybe its just me.
Regardless, keep up the good work, its the songs that matter in the end and I'll follow you nigga.

Stay gloomy, folks.
Listened to this in full, and overall, I enjoyed it.
Moshi Moshi was a cute intro, and I don't mean "cute" in that condescending "oh haha yeah that's cute" way, but more like cozy and comfy and adorable. In Memory of the People We Used to be, In Memory of How We Used to Feel was pretty and I liked the samples, the noise was a good touch (and is throughout the album), I feel like the build up of tension it uses could be better executed with some sort of release in the form of a breakdown or drop but that's me. Not a huge fan of Room With A View to be honest, I feel like the direction it has in the beginning with the beat captures my attention but then it falls flat with the silence, but hey! Maybe there's an artistic intent there I'm not getting; maybe the emptiness post-buildup is intentional, in fact now that I relisten to it I'm getting the vibe that's the case. Teen Movie fucking rules. The progression is gorgeous and the lead through the static-y haze is phenomenal. Vocals would serve well here. The pads and arpeggiation in My Biggest Fear are nice touches, the shift in atmosphere modally is a good change of pace to add color to the album. Birds carries on with this change and ties the shift elegantly, the sample is poignant. If you're not using vocals, I'd like to at least hear more samples, your choice in them is great. Ugh, especially the one at the beginning of 1,000 Love Notes. What started as beautiful and uplifting ends dismal and regretful with the final track, reminiscent of failed love.
This album is damn good, at least a solid 8/10. Good stuff man, if I had money I'd pick up a cassette.

wow actual good advice. I get why everyone feedbacks and such, but thats more for soundcloud in my opinion. bandcamp is built for releases, there is no point in putting something on bandcamp that you arent 100% comfortable with
Trufax. Feedback is always good but BC is more the place for your finished products. Always ask yourself if your music is the kind of music you'd listen to; fuck, that's my primary motivation in music. I make shit I wanna hear, and just hope for those with shared interest to gravitate to it.
>synthpop, dance, funk
>”Dance music for people who can't dance. I ain't never heard such awkward lumpy rhythms before.”
Returning all feedback
forgot album artwork
recs to the only real musicians in this thread:
I can definitely cosign it, it's stupid twinkly math rock shit with some emotionally immature pussy on vox (no disrespect to you personally, I don't know what kind of person you are but that is at least how you come across in this song) and a dumb childish hand drawn album cover. The lyrics are pointlessly and verbosely abstract sentimental garbage that don't mean anything and there's literally no reason for anyone to ever listen to this instead of every other band in the genre. I hate everything about it and the uncreative black hole of mediocreness it represents.
>show us some of your stuff :^)
Even though you don't contribute artistically to a specific medium you can still critique stuff within said medium as harshly as you want. I know you didn't explicitly tell him he couldn't give you criticism, but I do dislike that kind of rhetoric in general so don't try to point out any non-existent fallacies. I'm the best and you suck.
This is me btw >>61738331
If you don't reply I win :P
just released my fourth album
Savior is a cool synthpop track with an awesome guitar solo that reminds me of the solo in St. Elmo's Fire by Eno. otherwise, these beats seem pretty stylistically disjointed, and that and the fact that they aren't mixed or anything makes it hard to get in the album's groove. I also wonder what's post structuralist about it; I could see how different tracks might be trying to deconstruct certain styles, but they don't develop enough to do it effectively
sorry you can't find meaning in it for yourself. But as the vocalist/ writer I can tell you it isn't meaningless I refuse to write without purpose.
Also I write and sing in; Infrastructures and The Vex Project. between all these things you might find something that you like or not.
Sorry for not touching you in anyway but I just wanted to go on record and say that my lyrics aren't meaningless. Thx.
was posted before, but whatever. working on a new release, with every bit improved
moody and atmospheric stuff, but kinda repetitive. I think it lack some percussion and culminations of kinds
just listened to a couple of track and decided to dl, it sounds pretty good to me
I'll take my time listening to this now, looks like my medicine
this is too slow and mopey for me. good stuff, but I think I'd have to enjoy doom more. not that I'd have to be more depressed but I'd have to be depressed in a very different way
not crazy about the production, but it doesn't really detract either. I like the instrumentation though. I feel like your songwriting will improve with time but you have a good grasp on construction and arrangement and stuff like that
I don't know man, I kept feeling like this was a great intro to some screwed up beats that never came. not gonna listen to it all right now to see if the atmosphere holds up on its own
not going to deny their meaning like the other guy, but your lyrics don't make a ton of sense to me. nice guitar work and production though
nice, really reminds me of elliott smith a lot. recommended
Alright, I've listened to Deceiver and I really liked the riffing and the guitar tone sounds great, but I feel like the vocals might be a bit of a turn-off for the diehard fans of the genre which I know you're trying to appeal to. Don't get me wrong, I love your vocals, but I feel like they'd work better in a metalcore or punk setting where you can let your emotions loose a bit more. That's one of the things I love about you, you've got this really playful/childlike attitude to music/art and self-expression in general that appeals to me and I know is fulfilling for you, but on the other hand I know you want be conventionally accepted and I'm not sure the completely unrestrained emotionally expressive nature of your work is doing that part of it a favor. It almost feels like you're "playing musician" at some points and simultaneously making a caricature of yourself and the sound you're trying to capture. I'm not saying it's immature but I'd be lying if I didn't say it might come off as it. But yeah you know I'm rooting for you and I think you're a very talented songwriter/instrumentalist and a great person.
This is very interesting, I like the use of autotune and the vocal phrasing really appeals to me a lot for some reason. The drums sound like absolute crap but the background pads and effects as well as the marimba all sound great. You seem like an interesting enough musical persona, contact me through bandcamp if you ever want to discuss making something or just want to discuss art in general.
>but they don't develop enough to do it effectively
I disagree, but thank you for your comment.
Well at least you got me riled up, seriously though don't be sad, I'm sure you have a lot of potential.
Man, I'm not upset. I just know how we sound and as the bands producer I'd like to add something to make us stick out too. So seemingly talking down my favorite part (lyrics) kinda gets to me. To better explain the song we even made a video to show what it's about. (not a plug, but ... a plug.)
Best of luck man! (also I was forced to make that car drawing)
Definitely appreciate the detailed response and I love how honest you are with me all the time.
In all honesty, the caricaturized vocals are an purpose. You'll see how it fits when the album drops in full, it's a conceptual sequel to Quarry To My Conscience, asit explores the severely fucked mental state I was in last year and the symptoms of mental illness, this is like a personification of that mentality of "If you fall for me get ready for me to fuck you up 'cause I've stopped caring about most things and you're an easy target for me."
Half the album will explore all the "demons" a man deals with in modern society, and the second half showcases what happens when you learn to slow down and isolate what really matters in life. It's an album that has the intent of offering solace for troubled minds. It'll be easier to see how Deceiver fits into that concept when the album releases, like I said, but for now I'm just showcasing the music. Thank you so much, man. I appreciate everything you say and do.
>5 track EP
not really sure what to call it, but i hope you enjoy. constructive criticism greatly appreciated
Quit shit talking behind a computer and drive to Michigan. I know you think you're some sort of "cool internet persona" because you find it necessary to have a tripcode on an anonymous site. Listen egomaniac, We are going to battle. We have been combatting over the world wide web for too long.
Hey guys. I run a small net label and we're currently accepting submissions.
We release experimental electronic music, with our origins in vaporwave. We are trying to move away from vaporwave and build up a more extensive sonic catalogue.
Check us out!
i can hear the potential you have, its impressive that you do this all by yourself. to my bookmarks for sure!
people saying this is generic, yes, it is. but its still really good!
i dig the "wave" stuff here! keep it up.
the vocals ruined it for me, cus the instrumentals are great!
this is dull as fuck, c'mon at least add some drums or synths! spent a long time doing that? i dunno
this is the best thing in this thread. going to download it later! thanks anon!
>Noisy/sludgy alternative rock
Thanks for listening
This is me, just chose a few albums at random:
i should probably have mentioned. first album is electronic hip-hop, instrument. the second is breakcore, noise. the third is glitchy breakcore, but more melodic.
