  2. Jules! It's been way too long, how're you doing? :) So I was wondering if I could ask you for something; Lana (indanomati) is in Germany at the moment and she called me today. She would like to get in touch with you but she has no internet at the moment, so she has asked me to ask you for your number so I can pass it on to her. :wacky:

  3. :lol: I love this post. But seriously, thanks for the tape, I did enjoy it and for the band info as well! My name's Mo btw, nice to meet you :nice:
  4. Hi :awesome: Sorry you had to change your plans haha (I say haha a lot too :wacky: ). But thanks for the tape, though. I did enjoy it and will check out Five Iron Frenzy, Deas Vail, Relient K and Anathallo! Cheeeers
  5. OK, here's my review. Sorry it's a bit late! :embarrassed: 1- Slow build up with chimy guitars and female vocals. A man's voice joins in along with some drums. Quite enjoying; I like the drums and the backing female vocals. Oooh trumpets. I love trumpets! Cool start! 2- Rockier start to this, with heavy use of synth. I quite like the guitar part in the bridge parts. I can imagine listening to this while I'm driving. Not something I'd normally listen to, but it's not bad. 3- Slightly electronic start to this and a strong synth beat. Electronic vocals. I found the vocals a little annoying the first time I heard it, but after a couple of listens they're quite catchy. Reminds me of 80s pop, maybe it is from the 80s? Again, not something I'd usually listen to but it's quite good! 4- Woop rocky. It's a bit too mainstram-y for my liking, though. Sorry :\ It sounds like it's trying to be heavy without being heavy, if that makes any sense :blank: The breakdown around the middle is pretty cool, though :wacky: 5- Another slightly electronic track. Not sure how I feel about this, the chorus is quite catchy, but it isn't really my thing again. It's OK, the lyrics are good. 6-Enjoying this; I like the guy's almost laid back vocals and the strings that start after the halfway point. Cool song. BTW, the name of the song popped up on Media Player, no band name, though :) 7- Oooh, I like this. I'm really enjoying the ska-like trumpets and the bass. My favourite song so far! 8-Another track with the song name showing. No band name, though! I like this, too, especially the synthy outro from 2:30 onwards. 9-Acoustic guitar with some strings in the background, mellow start. Vocals sound familiar, hmm. Quite a relaxing song, good for the late nights. 10-A more upbeat love song now. This is fun, vocals sort of remind me of Ben Gibbard at times, is it him? I'm not that familiar with his stuff so I might be wrong. Anyway, nice song. 11-I don't really have much to say about this, I'm afraid. It's OK, not really my cup of tea. Sorry :\ 12-Is this Mew? I don't really know them too well, but I think it is..I quite like it anyway! Good way to end the tape. So thank you, mixtape maker. I enjoyed listening to your tape. I think we might different tastes in music, but I appreciate that you put stuff that you like and got me listening to stuff I wouldn't normally. Tracks 1, 3, 7, 10 and 12. Cheers :nice:
