Mine was a nostalgic Christmas pop song but I realised I was just copying this and making it more Christmas-y.
show


I have another idea that's just piano chords and me singing that's also nostalgic, but I may get out the ukulele and write one of those cheesy Hawaiian Christmas songs. Which the way I described means I'm already ripping something off.

I worked on this some more and I know exactly what I want it to sound like. I'm kind of sort of ripping off that song still but it will be a Christmas song obviously, and I will play some mariachi style guitar and have bell samples going. It sounds so good in my head.

If we could just get at least four songs this will be good.

I'm done for tonight, but once I come up with a solid melody this song will take off.

bandcamp sounds good to me.

who wants to put everything together? i will if no one else volunteers.

just send whoever is the put-everything-together guy wavs and then they'll post that shit to bandcamp.

Mine won't be done for two weeks probably because I take myself too seriously. Right now I have the instrumental bridge written (or the rough draft that is), and ideas for the rest of the song. Prepare for loads of cheesy major scale melodies.

We could do bandcamp. We should make a bandcamp for all the B&A albums.

I have some rad sleigh bells. It's truly strange how good they sound. I don't intend to participate in this thing, though.

I have been listening to Ty Segall quite a bit lately, trying to understand why such a mediocre person/musician/artist is so popular. I mean I get why people could be like "hey this is neat stuff, I can vibe to this," but I don't get why he has received sustained hype and (presumably) has people who are exceptionally fond of him. Is it the cardigans or smth?

That's kinda what I figured. Rocking hard is just numbing for me tho, and 'garage' bands that 'rock hard' are a dime a dozen. Idk, maybe before he was on the scene there weren't so many would-be-college-boys rocking hard?

His s/t album is really great, so if you haven't heard that you should. I didn't have a lot of time for his albums from this year though, I'd rather have had one album that was a lot better than those three that were subpar for him.

I don't know why so many people latched on to him this year. Seems weird because, like I said, all three albums he put out this year weren't that great.

i saw him on letterman (or maybe it was snl) and thought it was pretty lame.

i was thinking about getting into him a while ago, but i decided i didn't want to keep up with his discography so i never did. [:

I don't even know who this dude is.

Not only do I not play guitar, but I also basically do not listen to music anymore either.

Like, the only time I listen to music is when I am driving and even then I am usually too busy trying to be Daoist abt the traffic on Mass Ave to actually hear anything.

I've always been a slow consumer of media. Sometimes I wonder if there actually are 24 hours in a day as people insist. Of course when you are employed full time there are really only 5-6.

Yeah I saw that too, via youtube, via local twitter chatter. It was lame & reminded me of Cage the Elephant (except I sorta like Cage the Elephant cuz they're super goofy—they feel to me like Rancid trying to be the Pixies).

Ya the 2012 album I listened to earlier was really lame & he's a sellout for making an album w/ modern mastering which we know he doesn't like. The one with White Fence wasn't as bad but it was still like, why should I bother listening to this?

I've listened to his earlier singles and Lemons enough that I kinda like them in a quaint "sew 2009" kinda way. I've sunk this far, might as well check out the self-titled. Ugh.
