What do you sound like on Nu-ILX?

I made this track this evening using Audacity and Reason as a metronome. I've hardly ever recorded music with guitar and vocals, tending to do more electronic based stuff. It's a shame about the hiss, and the fact I can't play guitar or sing very well but I like the song I think.

Pointers and constructive criticism very welcome.

Now what do you sound like?

I've been working on some new songs tonight, but nothing seems to be working right now and I've got to buy a pack of smokes before I shoot myself.

Huh. I'm listening to Spiders right now, and I have to say, very Barrett-y. Your sound quality's better than mine tho (no surprise as I use garageband).

I posted something up mere minutes before old ilx went down the swanney. I described it as "po-faced proto-80's nonsense" and I stand by that.

Having practically clean, loud-in-the-mix vocals is a bit of a novelty for me but its something I'm sticking to for a bit to see what happens.

Lung Vomit and Monitor Nucleosis are my personal favorites.
Opossum is the most accessable.

I'll be doing some covers soon. I need to get the sheet music for one of those songs...but that's another thread altogether

I was listening to Carl Craig's "Televised Green Smoke" and I wanted to make Stevie Wonder's "My Cheri Amour" sound like that. No vocals yet because I feel inadequate to sing Stevie songs I can't be bothered right now.

I don't think so, although I'm not totally sure. As far as I know Phil's moving across the water soon, so he's doing this Wooden Coin stuff with Laura from Harper Lee (and me, occasionally), which might get released somehow, but I think my participation brought about the death of Kicker.

I should try joining bands I don't like, and see if I have the same anti-success effect.

i've been rehearsing new songs with a band and it's been really exciting and also scary (first time leading a band). it's interesting how knowing you'll have to play everything live changes the writing process. i've been listening to a lot of alvvays and tom petty recently, trying to simplify things a little bit. this is just a demo but one of those where i spent way the hell too long working on it. i'm pumped to eventually play it all really loudly with real people!

nope, or at least not yet! i'm not playing them - sticking to guitar and keyboard. it's still really early going with the whole thing, and at this point i'm still figuring out how to play my own parts. it's really weird to learn how to play your own songs, but even when i recorded old demos i'd just learn it well enough to record and then forget, or programmed them in the first place and never really thought about what scales or chords were being used. so basically i'm doofusing it up left and right
