  1. Hey guys, I am very happy to announce my (unmastered as of yet) first album is available on streaming services.
    http://www.deezer.com/album/14977945
    https://play.spotify.com/album/3qdMrmi6bo2TQ3qZKM3DaI
    Or search for "Happiness to Misery" on the streaming service of your choice.
    Have a listen to those synthpop/indietronica/indie-pop songs and tell me what you think (PM or here).
    Those were written when I was 21. My personal favorite is the 8th track though track 7 (5:52, longest one) started it all, writing it in a couple of hours in February 2011 and after that delving more into left-field areas after writing more pop-rock stuff, HAPPINESS TO MISERY was created in the following months. The tracklist came together pretty naturally a while later, with the first track being more of an intro ("oh I could be the happiest possible") and each song alternate in the album between more experimental (1-3) and more poppy (2-4). The poppiest song is probably the second one, and I've always had a soft spot for #4 (the second one I wrote for this project) which is the only song here I could call a "love song". The vocals might be a bit hard to take at first, it took me a long time to accept them! I'm just so eager to share at this point.

    Thanks for listening.

  6. Many people on here probably don't know, but I compose musical scores. It has been a long time since I composed anything, but recently I finally got back into it. I made a new score in one day. It's called Buzzle's Temple. It's kind of a ambient piece with a nice chill sound to it. -

  7. I wait for your opinions
     
  8. I have an EP coming out soon, under the name Man of the Minch.

    The sound is a blend of pop, Celtic folk, electronic music and country influences - sort of Taylor Swift meets The Corrs meets Michelle Branch but sung by a man.

    Here is a preview of one of the EP tracks, the sort of electropop sad-banger PJ seems to like:

  9. Love the instrumentation.
     
  10. I've written a lot this year! I thought it had gone out, I think downgrading my meds probably helped. I particularly enjoy the memorizing melodies part which had become a bit of a chore, I scrapped an entire album despite it having some songs I truly liked simply because those were songs I wrote way too long ago and I wanted something entirely new, to see if I was able to do it after a couple of uneventful years, so came a mixtape which I'm pretty satisfied with. The first demo album didn't have much success WHAT A FLOP but on my Bandcamp I've put an updated version of it, the mixtape is a lot more pop with bigger choruses and generally more upbeat than previously but has more of a theme behind it, as hints the first and title track. I'd say my fave is Siobhan followed by Edge of Truth. I also think the vocals have improved a lot, I just don't find them to work well when the volume is too low, might be due to the mixing. Writing songs is my most favorite thing ever, and it's basically the only way I have to be able to make any kind of contact with the world. Nice we have this thread!

  12. I've been taking singing lessons to go with my now-acceptable guitar strumming, but teacher is really keen for me to perform, which makes me want to die. I cannot sing much above speaking volume if anyone else is there (bar her or/and my dog).

  14. Hi guys! So the first track of my EP went up on Bandcamp this evening with the rest of it being available from tomorrow. It's free! Would appreciate if you gave it a wee listen.

  16. Congratulations. I gave the whole thing a listen and enjoyed it. 'As the Haar Turns to Dew' was my favourite - lovely instrumentation.

    'Wasting Time' is the sort of thing I would write myself, another really good song.

  18. Anyone fancy playing A&R and being the Karen Kwak (the executive producer for Glory) to my Britney Spears (I wish)?

    I have a batch of demo songs I wrote and recorded from about July - to date that I'd love someone to listen to and help me choose which are any good, which suck, which need more work, which I should host online on my bandcamp etc.

    Let me know and drop me a PM.

    Cheers
