    Thanks. We have some other stuff lined up through january, but we're waiting for confirmations.

    Plus, we got accepted to be on iTMS through the CD baby thing, so that'll be good. It's fun and something worth looking forward to. :)

    I know you were being sarcastic. Just was saying...

    I hope people like it. We're trying to do something a bit different than the usual loud guitars, screaming vocals thing.

    So yea... I'm always curious for opinions.

    agreed

    the band sounded pretty good. a new style of music for me. so it'd take some getting used to. but at the same time, it's got a different sound

    and i like the girl's voice.


    might i also ask... what's the name mean/from/etc?

    the name is an african word, western nigerian, or yoruba to be exact.

    It essentially means "Serendipity" or being in the right place at the right time

    i really liked it, i thought it was nice and soothing. i might have turned the opening drone down a db and turned the vocals up a db but other than that i really liked it, i think this will be in my currently played playlist for a while. i'm also interested in getting a cd into the iTunes Music Store through cdbaby (once it's finished of course) , let me know how that goes for you!

    I liked it. I would have shortened that opening drone by a bit. It just went on too long otherwise it's a fine effort.

    Jello-Man, you're all over the place. Take a nap, or have a hamburger or something. :D

    Damn, there's me waiting for the quiet verse and shouty semi-rapped chorus with f**k' off loud guitars and someone scratching da' wax in the background.... :p :p :p

    I agree on the opening sound being a bit long. The others think it "establishes" the riff. So its all good. ;) Not preferred but not offensive.

    Once we start doing the iTunes thing (we're going to re-record this and 4 others for an EP) i'll let you know how it goes. It was like, $75 bucks I think for each album.

    And you have to submit a demo or something before hand.

    It certainly wasn't bad.

    And I agree the first part was a bit long.

    I don't really like the woman's voice, but my sister would love it. I tend to like female singers that have good voices in the conventional sense. Like Celine Dion or something (although I don't really like her).

    It's funny you say that about emily because.... this is the second band we've been in, and in the first, her singing was a bit more "coventional" in the sense that she sang more accessible melodies. But i've noticed with this project, she's trying to convey a mood...I dunno if that's what you mean... or if it's something in the timbre of her voice....

    I must admit, Celine has a fine voice. But she wasn't available to sing for us. ;)

    If you wanna hear a REALLY unconventional voice, check out the cocteau twins-- beautiful and operatic, yet SO darn unusual and original

    Yea. I have. it's pretty darn good. the chick (who's SO SO SO SO SO hot) was in Mono for awhile who are stellar...and i think her pairing with Robin Guthrie is a great move. Oh. and she's HOT. and her name is what, like Sibohan De Mare or something.

    :D

    BUt yea. I do prefer Liz's vox from Cocteaus. And she's hot too. :D

    I still think the intro is a bit drawn out. I also agree on the tone of it, but that's just me. The rest of it sounds good, the vocals come across nicely.

    But then again, who am I to critique. I'm not a musician. ;)

    Dude, how many times have I said it--non musicians make the best critics.

    Plus you have the musical taste to back up your critiques

    Sibohan... *dreamy sighs*... I remember hearing Violet for the first time and been blown away.... really dark music... and I mean dark in a proper way... none of this kiddy reznor/goth stuff.... :eek: :p :p

    Mono.... nobody mentions Mono any more... :(
