Round 3 - Herein there be rap!


Round 3 of Nur Ein IV begins at midnight tonight, and my new song "Silver Tongue" will be among the thirteen entries posted. One artist has already declared he won't be able to get his song in, so there will be three cuts this round. Will I make the grade? Hopefully the stylings of R. Mosquito and my new Roland P101 should help.

The non optional challenge was "Guest appearance. Guest must rap in your song." I didn't want Reve to feel all alone on the mic, so I rapped too. Fair warning.

Hear the song here.

UPDATE: Out of 13 songs, I finished 8th. Not stellar, but enough to continue to the next round. See you there!

Round 2


Round 2 of Nur Ein has begun! With three acts having missed the deadline, there will be only two cuts this round. Will my song make the grade? You tell me.

The title was "Schadenfreude," and the non-optional challenge was "Song must argue two sides of an argument."

Oh, and one more thing... I've been trying to keep it relatively clean, but this song happens to have a dirty word in the chorus. If you're particularly sensitive to the "f-word," then I'd advise you to steer clear of this one.

EDIT: The results are in, and I finished in 5th place!

New Songfight collaboration


Jon Eric has teamed up with Nigel "Sp00n" Clements to form Generic Sp00ns, the new band that is sure to dominate this next week's Songfight!

...For certain definitions of "Dominate."

It all started when Nigel posted this lovely set of reviews including one for my "Back from Juvie," which read as follows:

Maybe I've said this before, maybe not, but with a touch more humour you could easily forge quite a following via sites like Fump! you have a definate style that would sit easily with Dr. Demento fraternity (i believe), Possible Vote!

I contacted him and said "If you can bring the funny, I can bring the sunny." The result was this silly little number complete with an intentionally bad guitar solo.

New equipment alert! This song marks the maiden voyage of both my new Yamaha YDD-60 and my new MXL 9090 condenser microphone.

Enjoy!
