these guys recorded using their own mics, programs, computers, instruments, and everything all in their own garage. I thought it was pretty good considering. Any advice? Thoughts?

The bass guitar sounds pretty horrible, the pop is too loud and it's as loose as Jenna Jameson's minge.

It's an OK mix. There's not enough high end, and it's a little sparse for my tastes.

Vocals and guitar sound nice though.

Still sounded pretty amateur to me...

And the singer is god awful. Bleugh.

I'm a girl, and I'm really good friends with the bassist. Thought I'd try getting some second opinions on Antipode. I think that they're really something.

Yes, Ibanez guitars are "siick". I play a tele though. What's a good guitar for recording?

It's not that hard to get "pro" results at home with the right gear and some know-how. These tracks are hardly exceptional though.

Would you do it?

Wow... did the vocalist even try? Seriously I was listening to one of the songs and the drummer's cymbals were off. Lyrics weren't to hot at times also.

The live video they have isn't that bad though, I think it sounds better then the "studio" track.

Rule #2 of rock and roll.
NEVER try to inflate your ego by being close friends with the bass player.

Stop slacking, and put those shelves up!

Just kidding, but of course there's the old stereotype that bass players are big and clumsy and are only good for putting shelves up.

Kinda like Roger Waters in the 1960's, I suppose.

Although by that logic, I should be a bass player as well. And If I could play bass, which I really can't, I'd play like John McVie.

Ugh. Where to start? The drums can't be heard, the bass is clipping, the guitar is dry as a bone and sounds tinny, and I can't even begin to describe the awfulness of the vocal track. I don't think he hit a right note the entire song, besides the fact that it sounded like he was singing through a $5 radioshack mic.
