  1. Cell Phone Junkies!

    Thanks so much for your kind comments Dek That last comment about my stuff being very authentic and good for the soul, kind of brought tears to my eyes. That really means a lot to me, so thank you I know my timing can be a little off sometimes, and I had quite a hard time with the chorus for some reason, but I will work on this one some more, cause it's not meant to be part of my style LOL! Mixing is not my forte either, so thanks for the heads up on the guitar and other instruments! I'll bring them up a bit. Maybe I'll put out an EP some day, but I'll have to get the tracks mastered first
  2. Electronic tune with '80s bits

    Sounds really good to me Will. Very 80's...I would definitely dance to this.I think there have been some good suggestions already, that I agree with...like the never changing bass line, which didn't bother me too much, but it would be interesting to hear something a little different in the choruses. I agree with Dek about he vocals, although I really like them as is, but if you want a more modern sound, they need to be sung differently. But I totally enjoyed listening to this track, and will listen again
  3. Cell Phone Junkies!

    Thanks Tom! Your right...gotta have fun and I certainly did with this one
  4. I'll be with you - Mix ok?

    excellent track Dek. I love your vocal on this track, and even though you're not going to change to the lyrics, I like to be able to read along I too agree that the guitar, and maybe some of the other instruments, may be a little too hot. I would like to hear more dynamics, but other than that, I love it
  5. Highs and Lows

    I listened to last version, but I don't know if that's your latest version or not You've had some really good feedback already Gary, but I just wanted to say that, I really like your song. I like the subject and lyrics are well written, and the vocals really stand out
  6. what is this genre?

    Very cool sounds in this track. To me, it almost sounds like an Eastern spiritual chant, but because I don't know what the lyrics mean in English, it's hard to say. But whatever the genre, I quite like it. Sorry I can't be of more help
  7. Cell Phone Junkies!

    thanks so much Jenn...it's suppose to be a silly little fun song, so I'm glad you found it to be so I know some of Kate's songs, and I really like them, so thanks. Those two sections where the music speeds up, were the most difficult parts for me to sing, and I know I didn't nail them, but I'll keep working on them, because I know what you mean about it being a little too much to take in, especially if they're not lined up perfectly thanks for the well wishes fro my health...I'm slowly getting better
  8. Cell Phone Junkies!

    Thanks for listening a leaving a comment Sunni. This song probably take a couple of listens to get what's going on. It is suppose to feel hectic and all over the map, with time changes, etc. It's about cell phone junkies after all, and I was going for a crazy B52 type vibe...but I know it's not everyone's cup of tea. I know I tend to go a little overboard and get too much going on, so thanks for your suggestions
  9. Table for Two (Acoustic version)

    Never heard the rock version, but I sure do like this one. I have to agree with Jenn...great bass line, but I slightly too loud. Sweet guitar solo, and nice vocals and BV's. This has got such a nice laid back vibe, almost Al Green-ish Sorry I don't have anything to suggest...I think it's pretty darn good as is
  10. Mix preference and feedback please!!

    What a gorgeous song Dek! I listened really hard to these two versions, but to be honest, I couldn't tell a whole lot of difference between them, but I think I prefer the 1st mix...something to do with the vocals. I like parts of one, and vice versa a little more than the other, but it's so subtle, to my untrained ears. Sorry I can't be of more help. mix/mastering isn't one of my strong points. I absolutely love the song though
  11. Cell Phone Junkies!

    I guys, Here's one that I've been working on for a bit, but I could use some fresh ears I'm still working on the mix, so please feel free to give me some advice...in any area I know there are a lot of effects on the vocals...can you understand them for the most part? Sorry I haven't been around much this year. I've been dealing with some serious health issues https://soundcloud.com/crystalsuzy/cell-phone-junkie I never leave home without my cell phone It’s a part of me now, like an udder on a cow It’s gotta be with me, both day and night Or something feels wrong; nothing feels quite right I’m a cell phone junkie, dut da da dut da! I’m a cell phone junkie, dut da da dut da! We’re going camping, ya, me and my friends We’re gonna build a fire, so that we can send Secret messages, across the flames Text gossiping's, the name of the game the summer's here and were gonna have fun No one talks; no one hears We stare at our phones, and drink our beer We can text mean things, about a friend But they don’t see it, so we don’t offend Ya, it's summer time and were gonna have fun Me and my phone enjoying the sun We’re cell phone junkies, dut da da dut da! We’re cell phone junkies, dut da da dut da! Off to the beach, where we can suntan With earplugs in, we’re lost in cyber land Suddenly we feel like, we’re in a frying pan Now we all look, like a red lobster-man! In cyber space, we communicate Whether fishing or swimming, in the middle of the lake Our phones are with us, no matter what we do Taking lots of pictures, and self-ies too Walking through trails, takes a lot of skill Starring at the screen, we can take a spill Sometimes we’ll walk, right into a swamp But with the touch of a button, help is prompt We’re cell phone junkies, dut da da dut da! We’re cell phone junkies, dut da da dut da! We can surf the net, no matter where we go Listen to our music, and watch our favorite shows If there’s a fire ban, we watch it on our phones With virtual reality; we stay in the zone It's summer time and the weather is hot We swim in the lake and smoke lots of pot! Cellphone junkies...sell phone junckles Da da da dat da dat da.... Ya, were cell phone junkies, dut da da dut da! Ya, were cell phone junkies, dut da da dut da! Da da da dat da dat da.....
  12. Friday night party tune!! (Electro Funk)

    Hey Will, Nice job on this one. Some really interesting sounds going on, and I like your vocals. As you said, the lyrics are secondary, but they suit the genre. I could hear this playing at a club...it's just a little more chilled than most club tracks, which is fine with me. Not really my genre(if indeed I have one) LOL! but I quite like your track
  13. “Won’t Be Your Tool” 

    Lovely guitars, as I've come to expect from you Tom. Lovely vocals as well, and I like the subject matter, and the lyrics do it justice I found the laughter I bit too busy, but I think if you panned it, that would help. Really nice song

    Well, thanks again Dek, for stopping in for another listen and your kind comment!
  15. Get Me Down

    WoW! This is gorgeous Emily, and what a beautiful voice you have To me, that synth gave the song a bit of an Oriental vibe, which I really liked. I think you've had some good advice concerning the mix, but I have nothing but praise for this track
