Katsumi Richards gave feedback to The Middlemen for “Starstruck”:
Definitely a strong Strokes vibe courtesy the distorted vocals. A fun little indie homage to some late 2000s alt sounds. Some professional recording and engineering would set this off.

Goos call on all fronts Katsumi! This track was even recorded in 2002 in a very Strokesey time in my life. Thank you for the feedback.

Hmmmmm! Great intro. Great sound sounds as well. I love electronic guitar. The way you twist it really shows maturity of guiterist man.

This song to me has a bit of an Alice in Chains circa Jar of Flies mixed a bit with some of the early Bob Mould solo records like Black Sheets of Rain or something and then topped with some Joni Mitchell. Nice work. Keep the demos coming :D

Oh thank you :)
Right now I'm recording my debut album Morula. It will keep the same attitude like this demo, but it also will have a lot of different styles.
Stay tuned
Alice

Alice,

Powerful voice, powerful lyrics. I imagine that this is a relatively early draft for your album that you mention in that notes. One thing that I hope you will add is a bit more of a drive from the right hand, especially if you are accompanying yourself/without a band. I am a singer/songwriter too. I know that it is a lot of hard work. Kudos to you for putting it in, and it is already paying off!

PS: If you don't have PayPal, sell it for Ads, I would buy a copy.

Thank you for sharing,
-Sho

This week I will start recording with my team. I really would love to play in Pittsburgh, I just don't know if I could effort the flight.

Gremlin gave feedback to The Middlemen for “No Reply”:
This has a Sonics/Kinks/Paul Revere and the Raiders feel to it. Dave Davies would be proud of the main lick. The simplicity of the lyrics works great with the arrangement as well.

Cheers!

Paul Revere and the Raiders. Very nice. That's definitely what we were going for with these tracks -- a timeless, mid sixties garage-band sound.

Thank you!

I dig the lyrics and the crescendos. Very nice man. This song suits your voice quite well

thanks budday! lol yeah found the lyrics in an old note book while cleaning, what was supposed to be too different songs or poems I joined together make this. thanks for listening as always!!

I like this opening riff, Bojko!
Sad lyrics, but a powerful tune, nonethless. Vocals sound very emotional. I think this is one of your most powerful ones I have heard so far.

Danke,

For sure. Well One from my old band "The Closers" called Lolly comes to mind: http://www.feed-forward.net/w.1004_Lolly_ Can you guess what the spell rock part is, though??????

shoham gave feedback to Bojko for “Everything is Winding Down”:
Hey there, fiend. I had not heard this track b4, but it is definitely an interesting one -- I like its lyrics, even though I cannot completely hear what is going on -- still the story comes through, and it is a nice chord progression as well.

You are probably tired of hearing it from me, but I wish you would team up with somebody a bit more often so we could get a better recording for these tunes -- you owe to to the world, yourself, and most important, to me!

yeah gotta save money or work with legit engineers, all these are just me and a hand held recorder, cause every time I go to jam with someone they just wanna work on their stuff, and don't care bout anyone elses stuff, and are like oh play some good bass to my stuff then when it's time to work on some of my tunes they are all out of work ethic for the session so I just do my thinkg to get it out, but I feel ya 100% .... go Hawks!

rocked out with an engineer I used to work with and he wanted to make a band instead of produce record, and he wanted to do it all with a group of people who never shouwed up so it was me and him sitting in his basement and me showing him songs I'd wrote "demos" just and him riffing out guitar chords and saying "I wanna make something outta this" but never doing it or letting anyone else throw him ideas, a lot of the peeps I encounter are like that, only want you to add a layer to their stuff or pickup 50% of the slack, but then not pay it forward
flag (Jun 20, 2013, 04:04 EDT)
Bojko 
but they never try an idea, win or lose you gotta try, but they don't even try, like i know i can't do it all alone, and have it be good, just need to network the right people or add layers and tell others how to write stuff, "just go for it see how it sounds, come back to it A.S.A.P." lol

* him riffing out chords of his original tune, and saying he dug my stuff but never going anywhere with it, and not even up for my idea "let's just write new original songs together or something like that****

That IS sad -- but too common, sadly :[ Most folks are way too self absorbed -- is it the culture, or genetics? Either way, you have to start with something, and you are doing just that. I am sure that you are moving at the quickest and best pace, so when the time is right, then you will team up with the right people... What about you and Tom Clark???

shoham gave feedback to Bojko for “but now she's gone”:
Needs percussion! I like the lo-fi flavor, as usual, but I think that you will sound a lot stronger with a lot more percussion. Does Tom play the tambourine, or anything. It doesn't need to be super strong, but just something to keep the head popping a little bit more :]

I could add something?

Danke Shoen,

no he just plays guitar bass and some piano, but we should try percussion we don't jam that much cause he's a busy dude, if you wanna add anything, or want to add to specific tracks and want better recordings to add to let me know what songs
