DeathDirge gave feedback to Rabies Clinic for “Rabies Clinic - Vagabonds”:
Sounds very 70's which is good. Too bad about the recorder
 Mar 20, 2012, 18:27 EDT


Yeah, I like this weird thing you have going on with the synthesizer early on in this one, awesome :D

Very cool guys, keep it up, how many of you are there?

I think again, that one of the toughest things to do is to make sure that everyone's on the same page when it comes to drums interacting with everyone else, especially in a jam band like you guys have. To the drummer and bassist of Rabbies Clinic: Make sure you're providing a good pocket for everyone else to bounce out of, whatever it takes. The payoff will be very big, for sure!

Usually there are 4 of us. 2 on guitar, 1 bass, 1 drum. Sometimes we'll mix it up and the drummer jumps on keys or sax, the other guitarist on drums. Vagabonds is the only one with that mixed line-up that have been uploaded so far.

Played one show at a house party with a few other bands, and looking to start gigging as much as possible in the near future

Nice! Get out as much as possible. It's the only way to really hone your craft. Don't have too much pride to play open mics, these are great for getting experience with one another in front of a live audience!

Rabies clinic?!? Weird name, cool jam! Very mellow, enjoyed it. Reminds me of Vicious Fishes, if you know who they are.

Drums were a little bit out of sync with the rest of the band at first, but you guys started to really take off after about 2:35 or so.

Guitar solo sound really nice guys, just always remember to support the lead, and from there you'll be fine. Oh, and give everyone a chance to lead too!!!

Thanks for the feedback and the ears! Most of our recordings are improvised so the first minute or so is usually us kinda figuring out the direction we're gonna go...definitely working on getting some drum and bass solos in our other stuff. Thanks again!

I'll have to check out Vicious Fishes too, and if you dug that song I just uploaded some more...love to hear any thoughts

Pretty neat stuff, guys :D Sounds like the more you guys jam together, the better and better you're getting at doing what you're doing!

Could use slightly more variation somewhere in the mix, like a little more exploration in what you started at 2:35, but like you said it's a WIP. Otherwise, a really good start!

Thanks for sharing,

Thanks! This one is just me playing drums and guitar. I just overdubbed the tracks.

Ted Kindig gave feedback to WalaWalaWala for “Anchor”:
This is a really cool song Shoham! That unusual, somewhat dissonant guitar riff is quite interesting on its own, but it also serves to make the release in that garage-pop "na na na" part hit even harder. The vocals are a perfect blend of emotive and technically strong; always great to hear WalaWalaWala on the front page!

Right on, Ted :D I'm quite proud of this one -- the riff actually came from Angkor Wat in Cambodia, where I was one time years ago. The second part of this piece is called "?" (as in "What" -- get it? Anchor ? (What) Angkor Wat, haha!). Kelly B made a video for us for it here:

Computer issues have kept me from recording lately, but I've got a couple of new songs on the way. I've also been doing some practices with a band, so hopefully we'll have some fuller rerecordings up at some point too!

WalaWalaWala gave feedback to Ray Chmielewski for “Vicious Fishes - 21”:
Happy birthday, don't spend it all in one place :D Mainly I'm buying this for the name of the (upcoming?) album -- this is genius! The performance could have been better I think, but I liked it, kind of mellow...

Has some nice gypsy vibes which I enjoyed at the end. Themes worth exploring, perhaps...???

I can't thank you enough, man. I'm completely broke and out of a job and you just helped me get a loaf of bread.

I'm not too sure about what's going to happen in the future of this album (it IS the upcoming one). We've been talking about putting down The Vicious Fishes name and starting a new band with just me and Brian making music that we've been writing. This would probably end up being the first album by that band.

We didn't write this one though, I just liked it. There's 2 or 3 more songs that are already set to be on the album. I just have to figure out what we're going to do before I actually put the whole thing out.

You can hear some of the other stuff we've been working on here: http://soundcloud.com/fshsvicious

Well I mean TECHNICALLY we wrote it, but we didn't plan it or anything we were just jammin.

JZC gave feedback to Ray Chmielewski for “Vicious Fishes - Low”:
very cool cover art. nice and relaxing. for some reason I couldn't hear any music for until a minute in. Very good guitar work, the drums were a little slow. I had a hard time hearing the song. Is it far from the mic? I just realized I commented on this song a while ago too :)

Ray Chmielewski 
The volumes really low at the beginning, hence the name "Low". I put the mic up near the ceiling and recorded it. It wasn't really far away at all from any of us.

This album and our other albums are just us jammin (except a few songs on "The Blue One"). I've been recording our music since the day we started playing and I've ended up with a bunch of music, so I took the stuff I liked the most and put it on albums.

Very weird tune -- in a good way, though. What 'key' if any is this actually in? Vocals sound stellar, and as a composition it's really cohesive. I especially like what I think is a maj 7th at the end? That's a great way to end songs, I think, and reminded me of the Jazz era!

Great job, Rebecca! Thanks for sharing.

WalaWalaWala gave feedback to ABCD for “(deleted)”:
Nice and mellow tune, contrasts your other stuff very nicely. Any more in the works?

I like the way that the drum beat syncopates off of what is going on with the guitars, keep on making music :D

Thank you for sharing!!!
