Musicians Thread: Post your tunez and discuss

The primary forum for general discussion of Hipinion.com

Postby animefilm » Mon Dec 11, 2017 5:00 am

Here's my take on the most recent posts. Sorry that I liken every song to another preexisting artist

Nuetraleyez - Soft: Really like the mixing on this track, the bass line is satisfying and rich, and the vocals are silky and overall catchy. Reminds me a little bit of D'eon or more experimental electronic acts influenced by hip hop.

Pink Lady Mitsu: I think Meeker Sleeping is your best track. The arhythmic stepping works well with the ambient relaxed mood. It would be a nice listening experience to hear a few songs like this one strung together. The other songs sound like Merzbow

Steve Frankhouser - It's cool to see a very consistent quality in your songs, focused guitar playing/ fingerpicking as the main driving point for composition is working well for you. Mark McGuire is a musician you may like if you haven't checked him out, hes released some good guitar based ambient albums.

Sunsettes: Both tracks you have posted are great, and I agree the mix is fine. Theres some interesting instrumental deconstructions and sonic changes that allow the songs to sink in to their maximum extent. If you had more aesthetic artwork you could probably do well on the fringe vaporwave/citypop circuit.

African Cave Recordings from the Lunar Surface: This too spooky, but it works fine as nice background music. Sounds at points like stoned high schoolers recorded an album in one night, wearing halloween masks. Don't lose the lo-fi charm!

Hop On Pop: I only skimmed the surface of your discography but theres some really excellent variation here. rBGH (1994) is a great introduction and holds up really well as a punk album. As Drawn by Ethan, Age 2 (2002), this is excellent, somehow you changed your sound to early 2000's indie pop effortlessly... kind of could fit well on the Elephant 6 label. With your newer work, you still have the pop sensibilities like on 'Break My Heart', which was my favorite from what i heard on the new album.

Thanks for the feedback, animefilm!
Even though I only posted my 2 newest tunes, I appreciate your taking so much time with so much of my discography. Thanks!
I am old and cranky.
Here is my music.

Here's a couple ambient tracks I wrote today. I dusted off the Juno 60 for the first one and was reminded of how incredible it sounds, clean or muddled with effects

not new, but nearing a year later this is pretty close to my favorite track I've ever done I'm just gonna do a replug of what's probably my favorite release I've done too:

Kiedis recalled of the situation: "We started finding some magic and some music and some riffs and some rhythms and some jams and some grooves, and we added to it and subtracted from it and pushed it around and put melodies to it."[14]
