Since there's only been one post in the last 45 minutes in the previous thread.
Let's get more active with our feedback this time around
>IDM, experimental, microhouse
>experimental pop / electroclash
>chiptune / digital chaos
New EP and ACFA cassettes available now!
Love the chaos and mixture of the chiptunes with vocal samples, no criticism here
I'd like to see more variety within the tracks, maybe with different layers of samples and stuff like that. I like the skull trumpet sample
Loving the 'watery' nature to these tracks, very lush and organic. The glitchy and skittish drums are great too. There's no immediacy to tracks, not necessary a bad thing at all, you said yourself it's microhouse so the minimalism is meant to be there.
99% of vaporwave is terrible, don't feel bad, no only joking - Did you use a Megadrive to make some of this? I always think the Megadrive chip is a very underused chip, so well done if you did. This reminds me of pulling the cartridge out when the game is still on and fucking everything up. There's some good melodies hidden away here though.
>vaporwave >noise >avant-garde
will be dropping in to leave comments later
>looking for feedback on #1 and #4, want to go into solo drone, ambient project
I really like this vaporwave hybrid. Vaporwave can start to be considered a legitimate genre if more artists like you take it in different directions.
I like the lush textures and minimalism, some parts remind me of "The Field".
Instrumentally sounds good, vocals feel out of place on some of the songs imo
>instrumental, garage, shogaze
Let me know what you all think!
>cloud trap, trillwave
"Albeit vastly intricate, this is a playful album - you can tell Arcade City is learning and exploring. Nonetheless, any hiccups should be overlooked in lieu of Biosphere 2’s captivating peaks and valleys. This is a rewarding listen."
Returning all feedback, I'm now producing tracks for rappers ENTIRELY FOR FREE
message me if interested
some big collabs coming up, and we have a maedasalt album and pressing now available!
That was the first song I've ever sung on! Thanks so much, definitely my fav on the album. If you read the description, you'll maybe get an idea of why the mix will never be 100%. I tried my best with it, but its all home recorded.
Any links to wolf parade? I don't know them.
>pop, post-punk, psych rock
One of my favourite albums so you'll know i'm impressed when I say you reminded me of it.
Interesting description, looking forward to getting to know the record, I'll be keeping an eye out for the solo stuff!
They're on sub pop! I am a huge Earth fan :) Listening to it now, its just streaming.
Not sure how I will let you know when the new stuff is out there, but kind of glad to be rid of the singer. Feel free in a way
if you haven't heard my shit, there are only 8 minutes of your precious life if you wanna give me some feedback on this small demo, which i would love!
I finally got the equipment that I need to start a serious project so I'm compiling the old stuff I made throughout the year to practise as a bunch of EPs. it's nothing really good and I can do a lot better now but check it out (repost from other thread sorry)
(anyone know what genre i should lable this as?)
dude this is great, comfy yet hype at the same time
I like this, love the cover art too
So I haven't actually released anything under this name on bandcamp yet but I have a soundcloud (i hate soundcloud) with demos and i'd appreciate it if you fine folks gave it a listen. haven't really showed it to too many people.
>lo-fi pop bedroom post-punk surf bullshit
>mostly demos, some of which were recorded on a broken tape player
i'll listen to some of the great music on here once i'm off work!
>90s, Black Metal, California Rock
>Vaporwave, Instrumental, Yorkshire Knightsticks, Experimental
>doom folk, dark, depressive, baritone voice
I know I have said it before but this guy sounds exactly how I would imagine Ian Curtis would sound like today. The atmosphere of this EP is very depressive throughout and keeps you enchanted with its gloominess. Also, it's really just a guy with his deep voice and a guitar.
>Noise Pop, Post-Punk, Shoegaze, Dream Pop
>indie rock, experimental
Slightly post-punk influenced. Most tracks have this lush, dark atmosphere to them, also sets off a somewhat depressive feeling. The instrumentaion is very eccentric and feels absolutely fresh. The German lyrics are also interesting, that is, of course, if you are able to understand German. Favorite tracks are 'Vor der Imbissbude' and 'Er erzählt'
>garage rock, psychedelic, lo-fi
This EP came out last year in November and I still listen to it on occasion and it still feels very fresh. The production is very bedroom-y and lo-fi, but that adds to the overall aesthetic that I love about this EP. Absolutely worth a download.
one last one before I head to bed
>post-punk, dreampop, shoegaze
To be honest, this record doesn't add anything new to the table of Shoegaze/Post-Punk, but that is completely fine to me. It's a great album you can enjoy while getting into your zone. Overall, it sounds as if The Bilinda Butchers went into a much darker direction instrumentally (even though I feel like the new The Bilinda Butchers album is rather dark in itself already)
This album was released as part of an trilogy. The trilogy was meant to express three different types of folk-rock, from the pompous to the traditional.
>folk-rock, garage-rock, americana, old west saloon
reccing this, but to be completely honest I cannot imagine your tracks being rapped on. still, I'm interested in any potential outomces of that.
>queer noise, outsider shit, guitars, a home made synth and two drum kits atonally improvising really loud. also includes a Story So Far cover at the request of the woman who booked us
Thanks man. I'd call your stuff a mix of like, experimental and garage? I dunno. It's really fucking good though, I'm gonna download. How did you get that synthesized singing on "Though I Admire You"? I've been looking for it for a while
fuck this is good. It's heavy and abrasive, yet easy on the ears. Really digging it, although I wish the tracks progressed into something more
None of the stuff on my bandcamp was made with rapping in mind. I have more material put aside strictly for rappers who want beats, which WERE made with vocals in consideration
>None of the stuff on my bandcamp was made with rapping in mind. I have more material put aside strictly for rappers who want beats, which WERE made with vocals in consideration
Well, in that case, looking forward to hearing your beat production
>Jesus, that guitar riff on Juniper is sublime, m8. A little unsure on the vocal mix but still most positively reccing.
Groovy shit, good vibes, warm instrumentation, couldn't be more chuffed at the impressive bulk of songs available for free download. Reccing.
>hip-hop, chill, [bump music]
full EP is dropping within the next two weeks, just wanna say thanks to all the people on /mu/ who supported me throughout the whole process :3
thanks a lot man I really appreciate it! the singing is from the speech synthesizer that you get with FL Studio, the preset is Choirboy (I it on there at the last minute because I felt the track was kinda empty)
This is my first full release. Feedback is appreciated. I will give others feedback as well.
In case any of you were wondering, yes, I will be posting this till the day I die.
Good shit from some local kids I know.
>jazz rock, alt rock
>surf punk, garage rock, lofi
lemme know what you think, kind of rough
noisey experimental electronic avant-garde
been a while since I posted...
3 Albums of effected stoner noise and indie improv, not for the faint of ear.
Prepare yourself for a full of shit!
>let's get more active with our feedback this time around
>SIKE let's post our shit and leave without adding anything of value to thread
seriously fuck you guys
Ralph Danger - Flail
>dream pop, psych pop, sounds metallic and blue, like majical cloudz meets youth lagoon
Really cool feel you've got going on here. If you made it more full and made the strange whooshing sound higher in the first some it would really sound claustrophobic which would fit the music so nicely, so that would be cool. But cool ideas and cool synth line. Also you could work on getting some better, warmer sounding synths
This is really pretty man. Reminds me of Tunng or Efterklang. I love your voice, especially falsetto. good work
This is incredible. If you could get someone wiht a low baritone voice to sing over this, it could be some of the best stuff in these threads. It's still great instrumental but i can totally picture what this would sound like with more vocals.
This isnt me but its my two favorite bandcamp finds, not /mu/tants, just my favorite shit
Jerry Paper - Feels Emotions
Homeshake - Dynamic Meditations
What makes you think I only made one post? I posted like 4 "recs" or "love this" in this thread.
Even if I didn't, how is posting content "adding nothing?" Believe it or not, you nor anyone else is entitled to anyone else's opinion or time.
So fuck off.
Shit forgot album artwork. Repost

>dream pop, psych pop, sounds metallic and blue, like majical cloudz meets youth lagoon
It's okay. Just think about my feelings next time.
right up my alley love them noisy guitars
Yes I really did :), I just finished it up: http://dailyunknownalbum.wordpress.com/2014/07/30/flail-by-ralph-danger/ I gave it a mostly positive review with some advice in there.
Well thanks a lot! You're the first person to have reviewed my album, it feels pretty cool. I think the beef you have with the beats makes a lot of sense because the entire thing that set me on this path of songwriting was Age of Adz, which is my favorite album of all time. And I was fascinated by how the drums were the centerpiece of the song and the music almost complimented the drums instead of the other way around. So i spent a lot of time trying to make full, intriguing backbones to the songs. But I can totally see how that could get repetitive. Thanks for the kind words though. Means a lot.
I LOVE THIS SHIT. do you guys play with heaters??
I'm in hoops.bandcamp.com
>dream pop, garage-gaze, post punk
We are playing this weekend (saturday) in Grand Rapids at the Powder Room maybe ill c u there.
Yes thank you for appreciating that. Not many people have. I really wanted to help people through my reviews rather than just saying it was good and pushing it to the side afterward so more people will like me and my website more than the music.
I think people just get offended easily. Also, i read through a lot of your reviews and, even when you can tell you really like an album, you're quite quick to point out the parts you DIDNT like above the parts you did like. For instance, for Flail the only positive things you noted are that you like the dreaminess i'm going for and the singing is great but then you spend more than half the review talking about the beats. (I'm not trying to complain at all, I'm flattered by the review and I can tell you enjoyed it a lot due to the rating and the fact that you even cared enough to post about it, which is super cool) So maybe people will appreciate constructive criticism a little more if you go a little bit more in depth with the positive aspects.
Just some ideas for how to improve! I hope you don't think I don't appreciate it or, more importantly, that I'm pissed off about the review because I'm totally not.
lul thats my album what are u talking about
> wants people to be more interactive
> only shows up to bitch and complain
Glimpses of Lemurian and Aphex Twin, beckoning towards the surreal drifting sentiments of these artists. Thought provoking lyrics as well as some sick beats. This is gold. You're gold.
>Lo-fi, shoegaze, garage rock, pop punk.
Pretty moody stuff. You've got a sort of Ian Curtis thing going with your vocals. Some sort of harmonization vocally might be nice on the softer tracks. Dinosaurs is really good.
A Lavender Painted Sky is really good. The guitar tone throughout is very good. I like the really reverbed out guitar about midway through in particular.
Sound pretty Beatles-y. Pretty lo-fi as well. Not exactly my thing, but the vocal harmonies are well done.
>electronic, ambient, experimental, droney soundscapes, noisy
Alternating long and short songs. Emphasis on texture and atmosphere.
>lo-fi pop, sad pop
I made this today its short. trying to get an honest critique.
also bumping with the discarded cover of my EP
>noise, alt rock
released my debut album "eating mirrors" after about 6 months of work
tell me why it sucks
>Noise, IDM, Ambient
>experimental psychedelic dreamjazz
>experimental hip hop
Hey guys, been a while since I've posted, released more covers, still working on the concept album thing
New work in progress cover album (Johnny Hobo, Swag Ninja RIP)
And the concept album I've been working on
So far I have one album (The Proletariat) and an EP (Deficit) out now. They are both very different. I'm currently working on my second full length entitled Baathe which will be sort of a concept album about summer feels, and will be more of a freak folk/shoegaze piece of work. More updates coming soon.
>experimental, electronic, spooky glitch
This sounds so good guys like fuccck
>A multidimensional expression of elegiac saudade, benign monolithic dynamism, and jubilant, sensuous organic order. A stream of consciousness collective, bringing to life the nuances of the subconscious through the composition of sound.
it's rock music
>experimental, influenced by hella/skinny puppy
