I like that too.

I like call and response stuff or whatever it's called when the response is a harmony. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GaYq...etailpage#t=37s

I like when you have people singing different things at the same time. I don't really know how to say it :/

Kind of like when the lyrics overlap. Protest does it a lot on Kezia.

This song has a little bit of it



Idk really

I think i know what you mean and i agree. Its not an overly done cliche and it sounds cool if the lyrics are cool.

the use of the word 'funk' as the primary lyric in funk
EDIT: detuning the bass/guitar to fit the last chord of a song

harmony parts between a male and female singer. dunno why, but these tend to rescue songs that i otherwise wouldn't like at all.

I'm a sucker for gang vocal "whoas" and audience participatory "heys." In fact, anything where the audience is encouraged to wail along tends to sound pretty epic.

I also like straight-eighth 4/4 snare hits right before an epic part.

Key change bridges are cool.

Clean intros as well.

And the acoustic section at 4:25 is awesome.

I love the acoustic sections from this band.

It's almost like the acoustic guitar sound is only there for the strumming pick attack sound, it just blends with the distorted guitar to make such a unique, smooth and pleasing sound

Actually, it may just be a recording of an unplugged electric or something, but the effect it makes is just so cool haha


So now I have to listen to that whole album.

When a rapper/hiphop artist tell "the producer" to drop the beat and it works very well, ala:



Also, i LOVE tasteful use of guitars in rap/hip hop music. The Northern Lights are really awesome about it. Some of the songs are instrumental (ala Explosions in the Sky) with some sweet guitar solos and some are awesome hip hop with great beats.

I looked up the definitions for 'gimmick', 'songwriting techniques', and 'music theory'.

Turns out they're not synonymous.

edit: @ dreadnaught: nice find that song sounds really nice
