    I have been absent from this site for probably close to two years now, but I was just thinking about these compilations. I miss doing them, so I may try and submit a short song. Just have to decide what to do. I think my lost comp was Originals Vol. 3.
     
  3. this is a busy week but I'm gonna try to do a cover of Soil Soil by Tegan and Sara

    Submitted an original and a cover of 100 Dollars. Stoked because I didn't think I'd actually have time to do either initially.

    ended up triggered after I wrote about this manic episode I had. Every time I start recording it I almost feel like I'm disassociating. It's prolly that bastard demon Mara trying to kill my vibe. I'll check back later.

    I re-recorded a song that I wrote in 2002. I'm including my original 2002 demo and my brand spanking new 2019 version, haha.

    As it turns out, I don't have it in me to write a short song. My brain instantly comes up with ideas too big. Catch me in the next comp. :worried:

  16. “Middle finger did up-flip” is an incredibly 2002 lyric and I wish I’d thought of it. In 2002 I wrote “I’ve got a simple one-hand gesture. 8 fingers down doubles the pleasure”
    Lol

    @David Parke - Such a cool idea to do all these nursery rhymes! I used to have a similar idea, but I never got around to it. I was going to do a bunch of church in a punk rock style, but then I realized I don't know any church songs... I want to learn your melody to the "ABCs" song so I can memorize how to do them backwards. And I love the "Aliens Exist" riff in "London Bridge."

    @EmoEmpire - Your songs are so cool! I loved all of them. They reminded me of songs that would have been on the album Anywhere But Here by The Ataris, especially "Fine." "Life After The Band" is so good. Love the switch to 3/4 in the second half of it. That song reminds me a lot of MXPX.

    @mad - I love your cover! Tegan and Sara are sooo good, and I don't listen to them enough.

    @aoftbsten - Your voice in "Distant Star" gives me some Anthony Green vibes, and I'm into it. The ManOrch cover rules too. I've actually never listened to the original version of that song, so now I need to so I can compare.

    @therookielot - From Autumn To Ashes is a name I haven't heard in yeeears! Cool to see a song by them on here. Your cover rules.

    bradsonemanband - A little bit about my songs: "Turn It Down" was written and recorded in 2002, when I was 15 or 16 years old. Back in high school, I recorded sooo many songs, and I've had this idea recently to re-record a few of the better songs, so I decided I'd record an updated version of it this weekend to kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Re-record an old song for that project, and also have a song for the new compilation! ----- The other 3 songs on here are by my old silly project called Ohio! Ohio! All of those songs were written and recorded back in 2006. The whole album is like 32 tracks and is less than 40 minutes, haha. "JAWBONE" is in reference to this crazy homeless guy my friend and I met at a Wendy's once who told us the world was ending soon (back in 2006, remember) and he had this theory about the end of the world called "the Jawbone theory." He told us to hurry and build a boat so we would survive... Cool guy! "Electronic Gurl" is about meeting a cute robot or something. I don't know what I was thinking. If you want to hear that whole album, here it is.

    I've listened to the whole comp 3 times already, haha. This is in my top 10 fav comps we've done, for sure.

    @David Parke Nursery Rhymes as punk songs is just a kick ass idea. If I ever have kids, this is how they're gonna hear them haha. Little Miss Jill sounds like a punk version of Devil Went Down to Georgia.

    @EmoEmpire Your songs rip. I'm getting some Alkaline Trio vibes from them. I could see myself moshing hard to Fine.

    @mad I've never actually heard the original, but I love your vocal delivery in this. I really need to listen to more Teagan & Sara

    @bradsonemanband I love the evolution of Turn It Down from a garage band sound to full on punk anthem. JAWBONE, I laughed way too loud at that in my office haha. I'm gonna check out the Ohio Ohio album.

    @therookielot I have not heard that song in forever. Your voice is actually similar. Really well-done cover.

    I had recorded three different versions of "Distant Star" and kept going back and forth on which one to go with. One was similar to this one but tuned half a step-down and at a slightly faster tempo. The other was more of a typical acoustic strumming version. Ultimately decided I liked this final version best.

    Also almost submitted "Blood and Wine" by Dustin Kensrue, but I was tired and kept screwing up when I was recording haha. Oh well, I've got that in my back pocket for next time.
