Once again, for those who missed my last thread, Lexicon Artist is:

 

Dana - Vocals, Guitar, Piano, Trumpet, Tambourine

Matt-Guitar, Vocals

Owen-Drums and other percussion

Stacey-Bass, Guitar, Piano

 

Here is our myspace address where you can listen to the 3 originals we've recorded, as well as check out a few pictures from our first gig. Please please please lemmie know what you think, as we're desperate for some comments.

 

Lexicon Artist

 

the songs are:

 

A Dog Named Happy: A really cool acoustic song. Nice highlight of Dana's voice.

 

Noah: A very interesting and quirky song. I love the lyrics.

 

Well it Seems to Me: We haven't put drums on this yet, as they take FOREVER with the program we're using. But it sounds really really good when it's rocked out a little.

 

If you guys have trouble listening to the songs, lemmie know, and I can probably YouSendIt a few of them.

 

I really hope you guys like us, please post some comments, questions, criticisms, etc.

 

Edit: Also, if it's not too demanding of me, try to limit posts made on the myspace page, as most of the ones on it are from local fans, etc.

Cool shit. I love anything acoustic so I enjoyed those songs.

 

The lyrics were interesting.

 

The only real criticism I have is that Dana sounded very restrained in the songs. she can obviously sing, you can hear that in Noah where she really belts it out. but her volume is in and out too much.she's pickin and choosing parts to emphasize.

 

I think it would help the songs if you broke it up a bit and have interludes, or just instrumentals for a bit,verses where she is not singing. it's all go go go stop.

 

seeing as how your songs seem to be full of so many syllables - which is fine - it might work well to try something more up tempo. it almost sounds like she's slowing down her singing for the song,waiting to sing , if that makes sense. ( listen to the end of Noah, you can hear how tight it got when the tempo changes a bit)

also if she held notes longer for a chorus or somethiing- overlapping instrumentals- it would make it more dynamic.

 

I don't want to sound too critical cause you guys are cool, I'm just offering suggestions like you asked. and I can't sing half as good as dana.

 

bass would add alot.

 

more distortion and solo's (just kidding) though her voice would sound good with distortion.

 

 

 

those are my suggestions.

Yeah, I agree with most of your points. She sings a lot better live for some reason than on these recordings, and they're all mellowed out. The climax of Well it Seems to Me is amazing. Listen to her belt out "it won't buy you anything but a greyhound tiiiiickkkkkeetttt....". In the recording, it's all leveled out, but when we were recording, she was like, screaming it and it was fucking amazing.

 

I'm very VERY eager to get a recording done of a song we do called Lady Luck. It's very rock-ish, up tempo, plus I wrote the lyrics.

 

Thanks a lot for your comments. ;)

Well, from someone whose avatar is 'Rap Traxx' I'm not really surprised...

I'm just wondering how you recorded this, cause the sound qualtiy is pretty good. I'm looking to record stuff but my microphone on my computer is crap.

We used the program Garage Band on a borrowed Mac laptop. And yeah, it's pretty decent for our purposes.

Pretty cool stuff, sir. I haven't really listened that hard to the lyrics, yet, but the vibe on Lady Luck is really cool.

Nice, I'm liking Lady Luck! Of course you know I've heard your other stuff before. Good singing & playing. Still pretty laid back, but really nice. I love the parts closer to the end, after 3:30 with the guitars, and then when they both sing together. ;) Awesome work!

Hey, this tune has a really nice vibe and the recording quality is pretty good as well. The lyrics can't really be understood at the beginning but it gets better. Wow, that girl can sing! I'm adding you to my friends list.
