Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Karmawimp for “Deep Breath”:
You guys are getting stronger, especially rhythmically. Very impressive. Also, I notice a lot of new strength in your vocals and songwriting skills, not to mention your production quality. Its like really high quality pop-punk, now!

I think that you could continue to improve how you are incorporating the vocals. It might be my headphones, but the vocals sound too soft for me...

Thank you,

Thank you for the feed back! It really means a lot. Since we don't know any drummers at the moment, we have been looking into alternatives. For this song I was able to find an artist who sells albums of drum tracks for people to use in their own music. I have also been really looking at the art of recording, trying to get the most out of my instruments with what I have access to, which isn't very much!
In regards to the softness of the vocals, you are probably correct. I'm still trying to figure out this whole mixing business!
As always, thank you for the support!

Yes. I'm still in California, and Roger is still in Arizona. By now, we have definitely gotten a better grasp on how to go about our recording and such. We have a few more songs we are working on at the moment that we are pretty excited about.

Well, slow but steady as they say. Good work, guys! $Shoham

Rhythm guitar sounds very tight, fellahs. I think that the unison vocals tracks could be a bit tighter, though.

I like the pace of this cover!

Thank you, -Shoham

Karma(wimps) (pronounced just as karmawimps) started out as a little joke roger and I had. Radwimps (taken from the phrase "superlative cowards"), a japanese rock band, is one of our all time favorite bands. We were karma, but started calling ourselves karmawimps as a goofy little tribute, and it just kinda stuck. As we used it more and more, it developed its own meaning. To us, or at least me, it runs along the lines of being afraid of your every action. Being afraid of the consequences that might come. You start doing good actions to shield yourself, rather than doing good for the sake of doing good. However, this all may just be ramblings of a sleep deprived college student!

I got you! College student? I thought you were in Middle last I checked!?! Very cool-- I would even say it might look better w/o the parentheses. My two cents...

The other Memmott, Andrew the bassist, is still in high school. I'm the big Memmott! And I'm not sure why we do it with parentheses, to be honest. Your suggestion is noted. We've already gone back and forth a few times haha

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Stellarator for “Drunken Neighbors”:
Great grooves, dudes!

I like the vocals, a lot, but if anything, I would say that maybe you could add some more harmonies...

Still, you guys are grooving well togther, and I can appreciate that. Very progressive, but jammy, nice!!!

I gotta get up to Madison, for sure.

Thank you,

tawmy gave feedback to The Airvents for “Faulkner Said Don't Move”:
Reminds me of raw Ramones.
Faulkner preferred classical music, but I'm sure he'd never heard anything like this and may have appreciated the sentiment. It had no 'fiddles' so that's a plus ...

Faulkner probably had an aversion to old time fiddle music or perhaps the sound of it reminded him of an ugly part of Southern Culture. A black character, Tommy ("Tawmy"), from Faulkner's Sanctuary who is mistreated, ridiculed, and eventually killed, is the focus of this line with a unfavorable reference to "fiddle" music:

"From time to time he would feel that acute surge go over him, like his blood was too hot all of a sudden, dying away into that warm unhappy feeling that fiddle music gave him" (93).

Wow! Awesome quote :) Tawmy, where you been at? Hopefully making new great works of art! I was thinking about your Christmas song this Christmas! Tawmy, can we hear you? -Shoham

Sounds like you guys are having fun here. Overall sounding good. Need to get in a studio and get that polished sound.

This is the beginning of a great punk song, guys. It has an Ataris sort of vibe to it. I'd love to hear a bigger, fuller version with even more crunch and energy. Keep it up, for sure!

Awesome to hear you guys are still rocking! Been following you guys since the early days! Sounds like you've started developing a slightly more guitar heavy sound. Is this a different line-up from before? Less harmonies this time around I think. Anyway, the new logo is cool as well. This really is *your song*!

Thanks for rocking,

I liked the energy on this tune, I still think you guys might want to pick up a second microphone (a cheap used one shouldn't cost more than $20) so that you can mix the song a little better after you record. I like the energy and the song itself, though. Thanks. -showie
