Ian Marquis gave feedback to The Middlemen for “Don't Cut Me Out”:
One second into this track and I absolutely love the rawness of the mix. The guitar is sharp as a knife; the bass is tight, and the drums are punchy. I'd maybe like to see the vocals occupy a bit less space in the stereo field (they overpower some of the instrumentals), but this is good stuff.

Yeah, I have NEVER liked the vocals on this one. We did it sort of 'last minute' and I didn't even have any lyrics ready when we got going. Thank you for the ideas. If you want, give it a remix! Thank you for listening, Ian!

Do you have the stems? I'd love to do a mix!

The Middlemen 
Sadly no. This is from a number of years ago at this point. There was a problem with the hard drive so we lost the stems and a bunch of tracks for the album we were making!!!

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 ;)

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.

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.
