In 11th,

Adam submits Never Cry Wolf by Dark Time Sunshine

Score: 7.1

I thought the first 40 seconds of this song were really interesting and then the song kinda headed in the opposite direction I wanted it to - as in becoming something more standard than fluid. Overall, it was okay.

In 10th,

Gadarene's GF submits Sugar Water by Cibo Matto

Score: 7.3

Quote:
I do like the various dreamy elements of this song - the vocalising parts and those reverberating organ notes that show up sparingly. I really like the bassline for this too for some reason. That chorus though... Surely you can do better than lalala. Bleh.

Re: A Roman Walrus - Reveal

relistening to my submission right now and, based on Roman's expressed tastes in this category, bracing myself for the expected antipodium

I wasn't expecting my song to have the strength to podium so I was starting to wonder at what point I should start worrying...

Re: A Roman Walrus - Reveal

i probably should have gone with something from Stereolab or Galaxie 500 but I was worried about the point deduction for familiarity

Don't have much to say about this song. Slow and stripped back piano + electronic. It was done well.

Walrein submits Skydiver by Ruby Rose Fox

Score: 8.1

Quote:
First, I loved the opening - just had to mention that. And contralto vocals! I think they sound wonderful here and make the song come across as grandiose (in a good way) during the louder parts.

This sounds like as if some little lonely and shy boy has nothing special going on in his life but in his dreams he lets his imagination run wild and it's beautiful and adventurous and i cri evrytiem... Love the section that starts at 2:30.

Everything is too damn high. It's actually grating. This would instantly double its score at the very least if everything went down an octave.

In 1st,

Gadarene submits It's For You by Out Hud

Score: 8.6

Quote:
Interesting sounds. The song is fun and quirky and I'm still sitting here wondering what the hell that 'something' they're up to is. Some sick synth in here and when the guitar shows up is definitely my favorite. So it's coital breaths this time, but I'll let it slide.

Looking forward to next reveal. Think that was the category with the best pool of good songs.
