I started a collaboration with Taylor from the Mars Volta forums.

Kinda noisy rock in the vein of Lightning Bolt, only with guitars.

Let me know if you want better sounding versions, because MySpace raped the quality.

EP is now finished and uploaded a couple of songs, and a couple of live tracks from a gig we had last week, properly recorded versions of these songs are on the ep :)
if anyone is interested in a copy, let me know (the outro to oFFonOff is worth it alone, the rest is a bit crap)

i like the drums for the intro, they're cool :)
sounding fat, good mix. is it getting vocals?

inspired by hp lovecraft / the illuminatus trilogy at all? the backwards bit is cool, i liked that, and the refrain afterwards.

overall, me likes!

Cerpin
22-05-2007, 09:51 PM
It's written with vocals in mind, yeah. But we need someone really good, because we've had so many bad experiences with vocals before.

Thanks for the comments though. New Architect stuff coming very soon

a fresh start reminds me of the knife and you really need to learn to use delays and reverbs, would make it sound alot better and the drums need to be more powerful. and lol at 3rd storey chemist being in your influences.

however, i may be getting cubase SX off one of my mates in the next couple of weeks, which should help.

not my fault i reckon you guys are good.. :$

id be up for getting you to mix tracks, but these ones are always changing. i can never settle on a certain drum pattern or guitar sound or whatever. it frustrates the shit out of me.

Haha, he's only been singing properly (as it were) since last November, trust me, he will only get better with time. We've advised he takes singing lessons if he wants.
As for the Bass, well, the good Bass mix is partially due to me. I'm VERY picky about the Bass in the mix, if it can't be heard clearly, it's terrible. My lines aren't usually lines you stick right at the back of a mix, in No Reply, they're more or less the melody! lol

there is two. one is a rock song and the other is what it started out as.. i wanted to try lots of contrasting genres and these two were my favourites.. tho taste wise i only like the rock one.. i think the other one is still ok.

vocals are too loud...get someone other than your singer to mix it, sounds ok otherwise, i agree drums need to be higher in the mix, not the overheads so much, but definately snare/toms/kick.
guitars are ok, maybe a bit muffled but i think they work.

lol unfortunately in my experience it always happens, whoever mixes it, if they play that instrument, or sing, will always mix it with them in full fledged glory. i'd recommend making the mixes a bit brighter aswell they seem quite dark overall, maybe a bit of a light boost up top in the mastering, guitars are good but i think it might be worth padding them out in the heavier parts either by using just a little bit more gain, or quad tracking, and perhaps boost them in the upper mids so they really nail through, in fact listening again i get that with the clean aswell, needs some more sparkle. there are some parts on the clean guitars where some compression wouldn't go a miss, such as on the song 'this should be night', because the bass notes as you play them are popping out of the mix a lot, a bit of compression would smooth those over. theres also parts where it seems the vocals are clipping aswell. not sure why that is you'd have to check that out, i reckon the vocal track is a bit dry at times too.

sounds like a lot of critique but its only little things in reality, your singer has done a good job, it just needs some little things to make it sound really really awesome.

and yeah the music is cool! i'm really not into that sort of stuff, but its pretty sound for the type! i think it'd be cool if you got some more vocal harmonies in there, would add some depth, plus seems to be fitting for the genre. its good stuff though man :)

just one last thing, i reckon if you listened to some Alter Bridge for some inspiration mix and arrangement wise it would really benefit your sound/style, and maybe even Coheed and Cambria? i dunno i'm not up on this sort of bands, i get lost somewhere inbetween Coheed and Fall Out Boy as to whats going on really. (and no, i dont' like fall out boy lol)

oh god one more thing: on your clean parts, it'd perhaps be cool to play them on acoustic aswell, just a real mild blend underneath, works really nicely sometimes

montgomery
11-10-2007, 04:37 AM
yeah we were pretty limited on the mixing because i recorded the guitars and bass on my computer and sent him the WAVs. the vocals were done in a studio. I know what you are talking about it being dry at sometimes, the most apparent is at the end of "in classic slash and burn fashion" when he yells "this pain inside...". the reason it sounds so thin is because there is so much layering throughout the song that when they climax of the song hits there is only one track and it just sounds wierd. as in more vocal harmonies, we could never get the bassist and singer into the same room to work on that together so when we recorded the demos we just decided we would work on it later because i was heading up to school soon. we did mix the final stuff in protools HD which was a plus.
as for influences, you got one of them right, i am a huge coheed fan, atleast their first 2 albums, im not a fan of good apollo. saosin (especially the "translating the name" ep), at the drive-in, and mineral were my other main influences. our name was actually pulled from mineral's "gloria"
and for alterbridge, i have never actually listened to a full song of theirs.

thanks for the insight.

Erroneous! You're on about the new song yeh? I shall review that with your thoughts in mind.

I downloaded all the available songs of 3rd storey chemist on the myspace, and put them on a cd in the car. I've listened to it twice all the way through, and it's pretty cool. I wonder if you wrote the peices as songs waiting for vocals, or as instrumental peices? What I would say is (bearing in mind i'm being totally honest)

The sound is cool, that's obviously your strong point.

Some of the riffs, synth parts, and basslines are cool, but this is your weak point - there aren't enough of them. You need to bring more ideas into the songs, have more ideas going at once, rather than seperating them into sections. And you should take time to arrange your songs. Demo them, and cut them up on the computer into sections, then cut all the sections in half and play around with the arrangement. Basically, the tracks are way too long for the amount of interesting musical content that's in them.

The main thing I hear in your music is potential, and that's obviously a grweat thing to have!

I think arrangement is one of the most important things to get your head around, and it's also difficult to do, taking out bits you like and etc. If you start writing with other people, you might learn faster? You obviously have some cool ideas though.

Sam - I'm listening to your stuff now. Your mum said it was shit, but it's not so bad! They're all the same kind of thing though, are you going to do anything more upbeat?

If you want to sell your music, I would work on your vocal (if it's you?), and try to get it more upfront in the mix sometimes, otherwise it will be hard to draw the listener in. I don't mean change the style, but, change it up a bit, variation in sounds, as well as musical content can help to give an arrangement and structure.

For example, I just listened to the "I want out" but only to 2.13 'cos it sounded like the same loop over and over.

The drum sound on "heat" is utter wank i'm afraid!

Cheers tom :) Yeah thing is about the tracks there is they're the only ones I've managed to finish in some sort of way. I have a lot of upbeat/acoustic and almost metal tracks but my drummer can't keep up with tempo or hold the song.

I've been meaning to change things around but every time I do it seems to either make the arrangements seem to small or make them sound out of place. The heat track was kinda thrown together in a practice and recorded in a really bad way. The only thing that we got out of it that was good was my guitar parts and the bassists rather catchy bass line. As for the I want out its still getting vocals written so its gonna sound like its going over and over until the vocals are in place. btw I don't do singing coz I don't have teh bawls.

But yeah I will have newer tracks up soon that are alot more rock inspired and alot more upbeat.

Cheers Tom for the feedback :D

No problem, one point that should be made to everyone is that if an arrangement leaves you wanting more (seems to short to the composer) it's generally a much better effect than if the arrangement is repetetive, or boring because of it's length,

that's what i liked about my old band, i would turn up at practises with all the riffs and ideas, then they'd help arrange it. back then i was more useless than i am now.


i think making things intentionally long or short depends on who/where you want to listen to the music. short dance tracks are the worst things ever, milk the thing for what it's worth then move onto the next thing...

Have you tried writing straight into cubase/etc? You can then arrange and layer your parts with instant feedback... Helps with telling if something works or not and you can also see the phrasing and thusly balance things properly.



i think making things intentionally long or short depends on who/where you want to listen to the music. short dance tracks are the worst things ever, milk the thing for what it's worth then move onto the next thing...
You're right in a way but I feel it's important to develop the ideas and reference them later on rather than just moving on to the next thing... Repetition is fine but you've always got to have something moving (often vocals) and the phrasing has to be spot on.

yes and cubase has that song part audition mode where you might define a chorus or verse bit etc.

i like ableton live for doing that, mixing and matching loops and phrases

heh, you add a play order track (like you would add a midi or audio track) and you draw in sections on the play order track with the pen tool. then you can add these sections youve made when looking at the play order track. the 'e' section of the play order track kinda becomes your new transport, and you add the sections by double clicking on them.

you need to make sure you activate play order mode, which overrides how the transport would normally run, its in the 'e' section of the play order track and its a button on the top left of the window near the transport stuff.

when youve decided on an order you like you can flatten it using the furthest right button, which will remove the play order track and your stuff from before and leave you with what you programmed in as the new order. :) that help?

it's just the way i write things, beginning-middle-end... not verse/chorus/verse/chorus/bridge etc.

what i meant is develop all the ideas in a song, so those are done, then on the next song you can concentrate on the next thing and develop that and go somewhere with it :)

I think that while you're writing the song, you need to be developing all of the ideas to their fullest potential, but, when you feel satisfied with that, it's (almost) always a good exercise to go through the song, chopping repeated bits or bits that don't need to be there out.

we only recorded the vocals in a studio since these were just rough demos. I recorded the guitars at home using my recto pre. I programmed the drums since we dont have a drummer. Honestly they sound damn considering how many loopholes I took. Also the singer didn't do a very good job at the final mix of all the instruments, I had him correct the drums volumes a few times because he kept mixing them so damn low.
thanks for the comments though.

Ahhhh, I thought you'd mixed it! Vocalists won't be able to mix their own tracks IMO. You should get the data off him and re-do it.

yeah sure certainly.. all criticism is definitely welcome as long as its useful!! (especially mix wise, as 9 times out of ten its me doing the mixing)

Cool, well here goes:

Coercion: Is the title spelt right? :-p The starting sounds really good, then it kicks into the chorusy type bit, but the drums don't kick in with the rest of it. It sounds like you have tried to do some stuff - more reverb on the snare? Stereo width on the kick drum? I would try some overdrive on the snare, or just compression if you don't like the distortion. Same with the kick really, just try to force some more level out of it 'cos at the moment they're not really driving the song like they should be. This is only for the chorus/heavier bits though.

The other thing is the vocals. Are they doubled or just copied and moved/chorused? Do you think there are some phasing issues? If not I would add a lot more compression, and think about some distortion 'cos the vocal sound is what makes it sound like a demo IMO.

I really like the song - it's quite like oceansize

Erasure: This kicks in really well. The vocals aren't as bad sound wise, but it sounds like you could be getting more of a performance out of him. This is another part of being a producer remember! You need to subtly turn down the mix in his headphones, give him motivation through the talkback etc.

The kick, snare, and toms are all kinda getting lost in the chorus, which is weird because the chorus really drops out.

In the 2nd half of the 2nd chorus, the guitars come in louder, and extra layer I presume? This is what all the chorus' should sound like, at the start. If you want to kick it up after half of the chorus, just add an extra layer ontop of that. It really drops from the verse where the synths are there right across the stereo width at the moment.


Glitch: This is really good, but there needs to be more dynamics between the verse and chorus. I think it's in the drum sound again. It should go from the cool electronic vibe you have at the moment, and kick into an acoustic kit playing a strong beat. That's not really a mix opinion though. The mix is pretty much spot on really.

I won't bother commenting on the rest, because I think these are all kind of general points.

The bass isn't great in my car, and I was going to say it needed to go up overall, but listening on headphones, I think there's maybe just a bit of mastering missing. Do you have the C4 compressor? You can bypass the other bands and have really tight control on your low end. I've found this really useful recently.

Let me know when you have a midlands gig! I really like the stuff!!

the_man361
29-12-2007, 03:35 PM
well thanks a lot for the pointers, and yes youre totally right about the erasure chorus, i did 2 guitar tracks for the first parts, but then bought in about 6 or something for the second half.. did want the second part to sound heavier and all, but didnt want the first to sound thin, so ill look at that.

and yes, good idea for the coercion drums too, ill look into making them a bit more raw in the chorus, as i think thats probably whats missing (we did that one quite a while back, its being worked on atm actually). cheers for the feedback :)

They were pretty much standing at their pedalboards (obviously thats a given when switching effects)...the bassist has his own little headbanging thing going on, the drummer was good, and the guitarist seemed like he was really nervous and didn't really do anything impressive (his guitaring was quite good, but other than that...). Don't get me wrong, I listened to the whole song and enjoyed it, but I didn't watch the video while I was listening.

Remix of my band up now... It's nothing like muse :)

Edit: Oh and here's a little something just for shits: http://www.turboupload.com/download/KJ9tr5rkWtWY/carcrash.mp3

It's almost as if Bang Camaro, Ladytron and Soulwax all got rolled up into one, with a large helping of coffee :happy:

Some unmusical, poorly recorded junk. I think it's all fairly good in a horrendously repetitive sort of way.

Plus I sampled some Erik Satie which can only be good. Except it's impossible to synch it with a drum machine because he didn't use time signatures on most of the pieces that I like! Still, the out-of-time thing works with Satie, I think.
