Even More New Demos

Recommended Posts

I guess you're right. It seems natural for him to write about tough times.

 

You could be, but you should still stay here. ;)

Oh don't worry, MG is the reason I started posting here, but he has nothing to do with why I stuck around.

That saddens me, Christine. Matty is so amazing ;)

It's not that his music isn't well written, it just never suits my mood anymore. I miss his more aggressive side I guess. His music used to make me feel stronger, but now it seems to do the opposite.

im hoping for more stuff along the lines of hopeless tidalwave and keira anne

 

some days some of his songs are too depressing but on other days those same ones just feel right with my mood anyway

 

in the end im just happy hes still making great music

Finally I got to hear some demos. The first one was pretty good, the second wasn't memorable, I can't remember anything about it.

Yes!! For the first time I had the chance to catch 'em!

But as the demos aren't online anymore I'd be delighted if you call them by their names, because I'm confused when reading "the first one" and "the second one".

Thanks!

I wonder out of all the demos he has released...which ones we will eventually see on the next album - if any.

That's a good question. I guess he won't be recording until the full band tour is done, so there could be hundreds of demos to choose from by then. I think it's really nice how he's introducing his music to us beforehand, though. That's what the internet is for. And as Ben Folds says, someday artists will circumvent record labels all together and upload their music direct to iTunes. haha.

I agree with Amanda... it's great that he's giving us all these "pills" with new stuff before we get a new album in the future... and the quality of the demos is pretty good... a pleasure to hear to his new stuff! ;)

It's a great gift when he posts his demos!

I have 7 demos right now. But I don't really know, which ones are the current?

I'm slowly missing his MGB style... or at least the style he had before Hospital Music. - Not that I don't like that record, but I prefer Avalanche and WLR&RR.

Rock/Southern Rock + Orchestra!

Maybe he can leave his sad undertone behind and bring rock back.

Maybe it's because his voice is more raw out of studio and the doubling/multiplying helps cover it up?

Or because almost every modern rock recording features vocal doubling, it's just a matter of making it blend well. If the drums on the new demos were done on a keyboard (as I imagine they were, given the off-timing of the fills), I doubt he's going for production value on these, so +rep for sharing them with the MG community anyway!

I could probably host the two mp3s (assuming someone ripped them while they were still up) if someone wants to send them to me (e-mail to reub/at/reub/./org).

 

I'll post the link here if someone sends them along.

I believe MG asked that we don't share them like that, at one point.

Yeah, he did, which is why people haven't been posting links. Also why I've stopped sending them out, among other reasons...

On Nights Like Tonight and SAITT are both wonderful. I've enjoyed all the demos he's put up that I've heard, but those 2 are my favourite.

As long as it has cake.

 

That's not my main reason for not sending out the demos, it's just the only reason I'll post.

In my opinion, if you post something publicly on the internet even for a few hours, and even if you ask your fans not to do so, expect it to get distributed. Theend.

do what you want, i just don't want the forums getting shitted up with more "plz send me the song. thx"

 

the demos might show up here eventually but that'd be after the album comes out
