What do you sound like on Nu-ILX?

I made this track this evening using Audacity and Reason as a metronome. I've hardly ever recorded music with guitar and vocals, tending to do more electronic based stuff. It's a shame about the hiss, and the fact I can't play guitar or sing very well but I like the song I think.

Pointers and constructive criticism very welcome.

Now what do you sound like?

I've been working on some new songs tonight, but nothing seems to be working right now and I've got to buy a pack of smokes before I shoot myself.

Huh. I'm listening to Spiders right now, and I have to say, very Barrett-y. Your sound quality's better than mine tho (no surprise as I use garageband).

I posted something up mere minutes before old ilx went down the swanney. I described it as "po-faced proto-80's nonsense" and I stand by that.

Having practically clean, loud-in-the-mix vocals is a bit of a novelty for me but its something I'm sticking to for a bit to see what happens.

Lung Vomit and Monitor Nucleosis are my personal favorites.
Opossum is the most accessable.

I'll be doing some covers soon. I need to get the sheet music for one of those songs...but that's another thread altogether

I was listening to Carl Craig's "Televised Green Smoke" and I wanted to make Stevie Wonder's "My Cheri Amour" sound like that. No vocals yet because I feel inadequate to sing Stevie songs I can't be bothered right now.

I don't think so, although I'm not totally sure. As far as I know Phil's moving across the water soon, so he's doing this Wooden Coin stuff with Laura from Harper Lee (and me, occasionally), which might get released somehow, but I think my participation brought about the death of Kicker.

I should try joining bands I don't like, and see if I have the same anti-success effect.

This is a thing I've been working on since finishing MENTAL ILLNESS. It came to me really quickly in comparison to MENTAL ILLNESS. Some of the songs on there were literally years old, but all of the spectral projections songs were created after MENTAL ILLNESS. It's been a really liberating process for me to begin and complete something in a matter of a couple weeks that I'm this happy with. I do feel like, as a whole, this is the best thing I've ever done.

I updated a song I posted upthread. Tried re-recording some of the vocals and tweaking a few things. I'm still not 100% sure it's finished and I guess I never will. It's mainly the vocals I have trouble with - I guess they're deliberately incongruous but I still want them to fit in with the track like they do in my mind's eye

Well, first of all, you compared it to actual, "real", professionally made music, which I take as a compliment unto itself; I record in my bedroom, so yeah. And then, you compared it to one of the most influential albums of the past 40 years (in a positive way), which is amazing.

What service do you recommend?

I was stressed out about it for the first few days, then took a zen approach of nothing lasts forever. Having said that, I needed an outlet for my frustration so I decided to make a CSS for this site just to keep me busy while I plan on what to do next.

i've been using b4ckblaze, it's sweet. unlimited backup, syncs every night or whenever i tell it to. already had to do one large restore with it and no problems (other than isp overages for moving ~3tb data)

css: nite mode plx? :)

Nice! That was Tom's Guide's value pick for 2019. Their top pick was IDrive. I'll give it a few days before deciding which one to go with.

I'm using this particular CSS as a user stylesheet with the Stylus extension on Chrome, and I'm happy with it!

It's not a dark theme but, if you want, I can change the colors on it quickly to dark grays :-)

Cool stuff. Did you drum on those, or are those loops?

We've got a Valentine's Day track too!

I was messing around with a beat I programmed this afternoon and then realised I could have a go at singing Bjork over it, so I did:

DJI- I wish I could play drums! Alas, just loops. I state where they came from in the individual song info on bandcamp.

Here's something else:

so is that the best way to release something that samples someone else's work? i have a song that samples a bar of drums and i'd like to release it as part of my album but i'm not sure if that sort of attribution is enough. doubting it will ever be heard by much more than immediate friends but still don't want to be a dick about it.

Is it an old/classic break or from a newer work? Honestly it doesn't matter these days unless real money is involved, but if it's a blatant/recognizable sample then giving credit is nice, especially if it's from someone who's still working.

yeah, it's a cuban beat... not hugely recognizable, but they are currently working (and well paid i assume). i guess i'm wondering if it ever becomes an issue if i put it in the marketplace like spotify/itunes

Not unless they hear it and want money, which won't happen unless it pops off and, y'know, makes a boatload of money.

I like this Austin. Very dreamy! Nice counterpoint guitar tones. Little bit shoegazey, but not obviously so... Makes me think of something on Everything's Alright Forever, one of those hazy hot tunes.

DJI - this is great too. Lovely sorta Balearic-meets-Krautrock vibes. Really really nice
