looks like you guys are having a lot of fun in the picture. good vocals.
I like the 2:51 guitar with the vocals the best.

Those are some of the students who are making the short film for which I wrote this song. Thanks for listening!

I like this song, but I feel as if it needs more percussion. I like the structure and the performance is good, including the vocal performance, but there needs to be a tambouringe and maybe a harpsichord.

Great start, but I think that it could be a bit better.

Thank you,

Always a pleasure, man... Not sure how I missed this one before. Very different from most of your others, though. Has a really misty, mature feel to it. I thought I had heard all of your stuff, but this is really different, and rich. I´m surprised -- pleasantly so! I´m not crazy about the vocal effect around 3-3.5, but everything else is pretty awesome!

Any ne works in the works....?

Thanks, Ted,

Gremlin gave feedback to The Middlemen for “Starstruck”:
Very catchy. I like the mixing on this track. Can't put my finger on why though. Just refreshing to my ears I guess.

I like the megaphone type vocals too. My only complaint is I wish the drums were a little fatter in the mix. : )

Great work guys!

Thank you. It was written and recorded during the height of "The Strokes" first album, so that might be the part of the production that is catchy? This one actually got some radio time!

I get more of a Tom Petty vibe from it, like Damn the Torpedos era. Either way, neither are too shabby to be compared to.

Great composition. I like what you did with the vocals. I think that the balance is all around very good, although at times the guitar is a little bit louder than it needs to be, IMHO.

Great lyrics, and the band sounds tight as a tick -- no offense Mrs. Backner ;)

Thanks,

Jazzy! Recording quality could have been a little bit better. Sounds like you were going for a live feel, and that's a good thing, but I think that your music is very good, so I'd actually like to hear a little better recording of this stuff.

Thanks,

Awesome work. The sound just washes over you like a wave of audible heroin. Explosions In The Sky-esque.

At first I thought 7 minutes would be extra boring because I'm tired/lazy, but it went by quickly and enjoyably! Very subtle changes throughout. Super relaxing.

heh yeah ambient can be a bit, challenging, i'd say :) my musical background isn't in this kind of thing so i like to keep things a bit more lively. i try anyway. thanks for listening!

I think the music is really interesting and sounds good. I'm not used to growly singing, soo that sounds scary to me. First song I've ever heard about a sloth. Wow, and talking part at the end. All kinds of interesting stuff going on!
