Okay let's do this again.
No More Heroes: Philistine
Interesting dark pop style song so far, the vocal melody is damn cool. Resolves in a bit too much of an expected way though, I was hoping it would continue to surprise me. Instrumental break is fine, it's just kind of repeated what was already there but okay. Bridge section, then a breakdown, pretty standard but the material is interesting enough so that it isn't totally lame. Ooh that breakdown at 2:45ish is great. Modulating into another key, again pretty standard and not unexpected. Is this song actually 9 minutes? I was expecting a loop at around the 2 minute mark. Oh hey this is that loop point I was just talking about.
TL;DR: Not bad and far more fleshed out for a one shot boss song than I was expecting. Decent but not too memorable.
aRTIST oF tHE yEAR - Velour Brigade
Decent start, kind of weird. Likin that guitar. Okay it's repeating again without adding much. Okay here we go. Whoa there is some serious ****in distortion up in this *****. And some glitching shenanigans not bad. More of the same. That pad is nice though. The distortion has an interesting effect on the voice that I am not sure how I feel about in this particular instance. I would've personally lower the pregain just a tad for that setting. More of the same.
TL;DR: Cool and has interesting stuff but isn't that engaging overall.
Phish - Runaway Jim
Intro is an intro, nothing to say WHAT NEVER MIND THIS SONG IS AN HOUR LONG PEACE OUT.
Certainly a valid possibility! I'd be hard pressed to judge something based on live performance though. Those are very different situations. After all, music isn't just about the song, it's also about the situation in which the song is being listened to.
Those are just my impressions for how it is to me without a performance to back it up. I've only been to a few "concerts," them being symphony performances or chamber piano trios or latin jazz performers.
Current "challenge" to those who seek to do impressions on a basis, a little kitsch indie pop tunes covering Hall & Oates; though the band sees it more as a tribute then anything really:
Official Sonic the Hedgehog Fanatic
Film/Music Snob Extraordinaire
Private Eyes - The Bird and The Bee
Nice sound, like it's from the eighties, but with a much cleaner brighter sound present in this century. A nice blend of voice and synths, and the chord progression is pretty damn nice too. This isn't giving me much to say though. One of those "it is what it is" situations. Decent and pleasant, but nothing that would stick out to me in a batch of songs within the same style.
A little preview of my next film review...
My first impression of Carbon Copy?
