    Finally (phooey, three shouts!), since you rec'ed me Black Tambourine ages ago, I feel like I should return the favour with Glo-Worm. Same lead singer(/songwriter?) as Black Tambourine, but a lot more poppy/jangly (i.e. you can actually make out the guitars) and some slight jazz influences too I think

    But yeah, Nicol is definitely into JRPG soundtrack stuff as far as I can tell, he's done a bunch of cover/arrangements of stuff like that, so it makes sense that he'd draw inspiration from that. This is a cool site by the way! I couldn't find too much by the artists in my charts but it is cool of people to map out the chords/melody like that. Excellent for theory nerds. Hey, I was curious, would you at all be interested in contributing something to my blog? It's just that I realised you could have multiple members on extra blogs and you'd be able to bring an angle that I don't have (chiptune, shoegaze, VGM, etc.). Nothing like the thousand word navelgazing that I do, but if you're interested let me know. Speaking of creative endeavours, YOU'RE IN A BAND NOW?! You gotta tell me everything, how'd you get involved with it? Are you gonna play shows? Have you got any original material yet?

    Oh, wow, I wasn't expecting that big shout-dump. Totally cool with it though! I guess you pent up all that commentary for a week and then splurged it all out. Ah, cool, "Subtractive", is that in reference to synths? Nuts that you've (technically) been working on this EP for 4 years now, by the way. And I agree, I'm sure once you get all that extra instrumentation in there it'll sound miles better. I'm glad you like the KS piece. The informal tone is definitely something I want to maintain through everything I write, like I want to write as if I'm writing for a music magazine but I also want it to be very strongly personalised, I'll definitely try and do some other stuff like it. And it's good to hear constructive criticism! That opinion imbalance is definitely something I'll try and correct. And that's really interesting that you think the artificiality of the music allows for a sort of blank canvas, I've never thought of it that way. Maybe it's because those games are older/pixel-y?

    Dude these are all great! There's some really strong songwriting in here. It's like jazzy shoegaze but very lighthearted if ye get me. I love it man, I'm glad those tunes are coming together now. I literally just got back to my uni town today, I start properly in a few days but yeah it's all good, I'm trying to pick modules for this year and it's a very fiddly system so I have to choose between a module where I spend half my year making one huge big electronic composition (which I've always wanted to do since I started) and audio software development (which I've recently become interested in and there's a ton of work there). I reckon I'll pick the composition one just because then I can make a huge Kashiwa Daisuke-style epic which I've been planning for years. How's your college career progressing?

    Oh and guess what? I listened to the Anamanaguchi album, "Endless Fantasy." I loved it! I'm new to chiptune, but I thought it was a really fun listen!

    I apologize for the super late response! I guess you're back at school now for your second year? How have you been? And I'd recommend starting with "The Seer" by Swans. It's a challenging listen because of its length (it's almost 2 hours long), but it's worth it because it's incredible. Extremely dark yet beautiful at times; it was my introduction to Swans and got me hooked. And then, I'd check out the new one, "To Be Kind" if you're diggin' "The Seer." It's just as good as "The Seer" if not somehow better. Also, Swans have majorly changed over the years since they first formed in the '80s. I haven't explored their discography as much as I'd like to, but the albums "Soundtracks for the Blind" and "White Light from the Mouth of Infinity" are both fantastic records from their 90's output. And yes, E&I is so incredible on vinyl! I love the oral history of the album .It means a lot to me. :)

    And hey, I've never asked, do you have a name for the EP yet?

    Thanks about the Unicorns piece, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I've actually been working on the KS piece, I still need to get to the section about my own songwriting but it's pretty well-embellished so far. I'm thinking of cutting it down somewhat because it's kind of personal I'm not sure how much I want to disclose on a public blog (also it's like 2000 words anyway and I feel like I've been neglecting conciseness a bit). Glad you like the designs, too! That trees photo was actually the first cover for that single I did a while ago. I ended up feeling like blurry silhouettes fitted the mood better. I can't wait to see what they look like in physical form. And I really like these Bluelily demos, my only gripe is that all the 7th piano chords can get a little repetitive, but I'm sure proper production and extra instruments will solve that

    Um, and an update. I decided the old inside cover wasn't good enough for me

    Hey Zack, if you're interested, I've been doing some graphic design over the past couple of weeks and I've put together designs for the CD copy and the cassette copy (this has blue turned way up, sorry, I don't know why that is) of Impressions from a Ghost. I've actually printed the cassette cover off and stuck it into the cassette for LLR's First Base compilation (although I had to find a plain cassette for the inside because I got the dimensions wrong and the colours clashed).

    no worries, if you haven't noticed i'm pretty slow at replying c: all packed and ready for school now? agree with you on that BBs song. I haven't listened to the Nothing album yet, but I def should. i've been hearing good things! also, i just listened to some of the stuff on your SC, it rules! i can't wait to hear more! and not really, i'm going to ACTUALLY start bloging hopefully when school starts so that it can become more of a routine. i haven't been listening to much new music lately, just old playlists i've made or on spotify u___u anything recent that i should check out?

    Hey dude, just wanted to post the finalised version of the Unicorns post here

  • mindbattery

    So I've done my final draft of the Unicorns post. I'm surprised with myself actually, before today it was sitting there at like 500 words and I don't know why but today I've just been writing and working at it all day. I was actually planning on this one to be a little shorter, but I've actually surpassed the Rose Melberg post because this one's sitting at nearly 2500 words. Anyway, I'll probably publish it tomorrow once I've gone over it a bit, link's still the same if you want to check it out. By the way, those Bluelily demos you've posted on tumblr are mega cool, I can't wait to hear how they sound when it's all put together. It looks like you're having some trouble with the recording, so I'm going to wish you luck from overseas, I'm sure you'll be able to get it all done in time!

    Ahh, that's fine, I'm about as late as you anyway. And nah, it's OK, my classes aren't THAT bad, they can be a bit boring at times (worksheets, spider diagrams, etc.) but there's mostly fine and I do really enjoy some of them. And anyway, now that I'm going into my last two years of high school, I don't know if I've explained this before but the way the education system works in England is we study for GCSEs through what is the first two years of high school in the US (speaking of, I just got my results for those today and I got top grades, yessss), and then you can leave or apply to do A-levels which are what universities care about, and since it's higher-level you get to narrow down your courseload, so I've cut out half the classes I was doing before. So now I can focus on the stuff I like (english lit), the stuff that's helpful (maths), and the stuff I haven't had a chance to do before (economics, politics). So I think once I go back it'll be much more interesting. Tougher, though.

    And by the way, on the topic of hard work, I've decided I'm switching topics for the third post on my music blog to The Unicorns' reunion; it's more topical and I've not really figured out how to write the KS thing yet. I've done a short ~300-word draft intro if you wanna read it (ignore the links at the bottom, they're just for personal reference)

    Oh, not too much! Currently trying to get organized before the upcoming school semester. I'm really digging the new album! There are a couple track that I feel kinda. . don't fit the atmosphere, but I don't think they're necessarily bad songs. But other than that, I love it. Some real jams on there. How did you like it? Anything new you've been listening to lately? How's life? Nyanpasu!

    Oh and thanks for the recommendations! I've been meaning to hear Bilinda Butchers for quite some time, and I know that the other band is one of your absolute favorites. I'll check out both, for sure!

    I'm glad to hear you've been well! What kind of job have you been working at part time? I haven't bought tickets for the Slowdive show yet, but I need to. I hope I can go. That sounds AMAZING. I have a feeling seeing them will be a worthwhile experience, so hopefully everything goes according to plan! As for new music, the new Cymbals Eat Guitars album "LOSE" just leaked and I can already tell it will be in my top 3 albums of the year. It's BEAUTIFUL. They're a band that is heavily influenced by Modest Mouse, Built to Spill, Pavement, and shoegaze music even while still incorporating their own style. The singer has a voice that reminds me of the vocalist from Cloud Nothings, only the CEG singer has more of a wide range and an incredible falsetto. I think you'd dig them a lot!!! Also, the new Swans albums RULES as well as the sad, yet life-affirming Sun Kil Moon album that came out several months back. So many excellent releases thus far. Sorry to gush. :P

    Well, you have the EP, and you also got into Grinnell so I think we can say you have at least two productive feats to your name. And your farm looks really cool! I can't imagine living on a real life animal-having farm, I'd think I was in Wizard of Oz, but really, looks very cool. You're kind of right about it being claustrophobic, it must be nice to have all that land in front of you, but I kind of like the suburbs anyway. Cosy, I guess. My brother was telling me last week that if England were a US state, it would come 2nd in population density, so that might explain our mutual astonishment. Also, that would probably explain why you guys have still got dialup. Those art/music classes sound great! My high school environment is still pretty clinical so I've never had experience with classes like that. Thanks for the birthday gift by the way! I wasn't expecting it at all, I really appreciate it! I listened to it earlier, it was likeable, if a little formulaic. The last track was lovely.
