Some art..

go here to check out acoustic clips of two songs i'm working on and tell me what you think.

EDIT:  songs taken down. 

the first clip is the bridge and a little bit of the refrain (the la la la part)

the second clip is about the first 30 seconds of the song.

discuss.

Nice! I like it; you've got a bit of an Adam Green/June Panic/Ben Lee vibe. Your voice actually works really well for the type of music that you write. I'd like to hear a whole song.

If I can figure out how to make Myspace work, I'll try and get a couple of my band's songs up for people to check out.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

I was about to say Belle and Sebastian, and then I saw that it was listed on your influences, so that explains that.   :yabbse-wink:

What does My Bloody Valentine mean?  Is that a group?

EDIT:  I just checked them out for the first time and they dont seem to bad, so I guess its kinda a complement.  Do you think it sounds too much like them?

No, not at all. And it is a compliment. Your voice sounds similar.

I hear it.  More in the music itself than the vocals.

Adam Green plays really offbeat (really offbeat), melodic acoustic music.  He's somewhere between the Beatles and Ween.  He uses a lot of sevenths and ninths in his chord progressions and sort of builds the melody through the guitar part a lot like you do in the two bits I've heard.  Vocally and lyrically I wouldn't compare you with him at all (like I say, he's very offbeat), but in terms of the music I hear some similarities.

okay so this is the last "clip" i'll post.  it's christmas time so we've got enough good equipment to record our songs full.  i use to only record bridges and clips of songs without drums and send them to my friend to show him how i think a certain part should go.   this is one of those.  next time you hear this song, it will have bass, drums, everything.   

i don't know why i am choosing to post this, maybe it's cause i did it using my new microphone.  but even from this small clip, i think it shows  i'm getting better at harmonies, singing, instrumentation etc.

within the month i should have a couple full songs up.
