I might be around for the odd tune but highly doubtful it'll be full FAWM. Just too busy with university I'm afraid!

**I am super super busy so, apologies for being rubbish - this is a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has left a comment**


    Leave a message. Log in to FAWM or sign up first!

    Haha! Oh it's so very sad isn't it. Always well up a bit in the dialogue around the song title... when she says "....everyone [shoves Joel] -fucking, except for you!"



  • @fuzzy  Feb 28

    Thanx for sharing your awesome music this FAWM!

  • @xfloorpunchx Feb 27

    You are so clooose ! Good luck @frenchcricket ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @thelowestbitter  Feb 27

    I won't pretend I know much about vaporwave, I just know that I LOVE Skylar Spence and when I came across some of his old fans who were angry he does proper cheesy pop songs now instead of just slowing down old disco hits I ended up down an intermittently enjoyable vaporwave rabbit hole. Skylar Spence is worth checking out though, harmonies in this are ๐Ÿ‘Œ

    Did you not read the bit about the spaceship? He was a dick.

  • @mungus  Feb 27

    Haha, that's cool, what kind of sampler do you use, if you don't mind me asking? If I ever sample I just mess around with it in my DAW, but a dedicated controller might feel more, like you say, like an instrument?

  • @mungus  Feb 25

    Hey! Thanks for the message and for listening, I'm glad you enjoyed it, I was quite anxious about that track. I agree, sometimes they can sound quite grand and archaic like a harp! My Nylon is my go-to for noodling ideas

    Whats your primary writing instrument?

  • @adforperu  Feb 24

    Oh yeah, duh. I guess it was less a running commentary and more an instant review! Maybe I could chat at the end end of each verse, that'd be good. Crikey, and did suggest doing that at all times?!

  • @adforperu  Feb 24

    Ha, for lyrics you mean?! Julie always asks me what I mean line by line... can get embarrassing when it means fuck all........

  • @tunecat  Feb 22

    Thanks so much for your comments on my track "Waking up" I'll check out the Tuneyards.

  • @paulh1237  Feb 22

    Note to self: Name tracks better, people do sometimes use the magic download button

  • @thelowestbitter  Feb 22

    Ha yeah I ended up with a fair few โ€œjazzzzโ€ tracks too and thought about calling the song that, but I liked that cryptic clue as both a title and lyric so just kept that. Definitely tagging it #jazzzz though

  • @judypie  Feb 20

    I have played with auto tune on garage band but hate the effect! I always turn it off, literally prefer missing the note! And as stupid as I may sound, I genuinely didn't know that practising scales would help me with this so I will get on that when FAWM ends thank you! Assuming there's a YouTube vid to help me?!

  • @cnidaria  Feb 19

    Got it! Just sent you back some feedback.

  • @cnidaria  Feb 15

    Got it! Iโ€™ll take a look at it in the next couple days and see what I come up with.

  • @hanley  Feb 15

    Ha, I would like to teach the kids my new song but thereโ€™s about 10 chords for them to learn so it could take a few years!

  • @paulh1237  Feb 15

    Haha - it's my infamous zoom pedal! I love my zoom pedal. It makes my guitar sound like an old Casio keyboard trying to sound like a guitar.

  • @cnidaria  Feb 14

    Yeah, send them my way as is.

  • @shortdan  Feb 14

    Oh no, that one is still sitting there half finished! This was literally something I put together when I got home tonight. Iโ€™m on holiday from tomorrow afternoon so the real fun starts then! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @cnidaria  Feb 12

    That sounds perfect. Wasnโ€™t familiar with Broadcast, but I looked them up and liked the sound. Will have to check more of their stuff out later.

    Feel free to email me once you have something. My email is linked on my page.

  • @cnidaria  Feb 12

    Glad you responded to my collab post. Writing it was partially inspired by stumbling upon some really cool electronic stuff on here this morning, yours included. Was there something you have already you wanted to add vocals too? Or were thinking of starting fresh?

  • @thelowestbitter  Feb 11

    Thanks for the comment! Yeah, the queer gig scene in Glasgow is great and filled with awesome people who are in no way elitist or (for the most part) cooler-than-thou, I know it's mainly me projecting my own insecurities on people who just happen to have better clothes and hair than me!

  • @vomvorton  Feb 10

    I have indeed seen Click, but hadn't thought about it in years (I agree that it is Quite Poor) - the concept had potentially been lurking in my brain since then though, stirred from slumber by hangover.

  • @stephenwordsmith  Feb 6

    Hello, again.

    I have decided to move the release date of the album back to March (it was getting a little too late in January - my audience's focus was more than starting to shift towards the preparing of studios and other such tasks).

    If you can find some time this month to send me a file for So Far, So Good, I'll be able to make my final preparations. Thanks again.

  • @shortdan  Feb 6

    Thought so! I loves it too ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @vomvorton  Feb 6

    Immediately after commenting on your first song my phone buzzed to remind me that it has been six years since Flash a Shine of Light. Where does the time go!?

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 5

    welcome back, and hope you have time for at least a few songs this fawm! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @tobermory  Feb 1


  • @owl  Jan 31

  • @alboe Jan 31

    Hope you will be able to find a bit of time, I always enjoy your music.

  • @cts  Jan 31

  • @shortdan  Jan 30

    Ha... well not far off!!

  • @tinattd  Jan 28

  • @cairobraga Jan 27

  • @shoehaze Jan 26

    Awesome seeing cLOUDDEAD as an influence. And Chelsea! Definitely following for whatever you do this FAWM

  • @nuj4x Jan 25

    Thank you for your response on my thread! I got beats, risers, drops, beeps, and bloops! I shall bring them forth unto this FAWM and leave an audio footprint on your cricketโ€™d noggin! ๐Ÿ˜

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 25

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 25

    Cheers! Great picture! And I hope if time allows we will hear some of your awesome music!!!

  • @krayzie003  Jan 2018

    Hope you get a few songs in. Would love to listen.

  • @karlsburg25  Jan 2018

    Bloody uni hey!! Still greetings x

  • @stephenwordsmith  Jan 2018

    Awesome. Thank you. Look forward to it.

  • @expendablefriend  Jan 2018

    Ah....busy times...can't argue with that. Here's hoping you find time for a few "odd tunes" along the way, though ๐Ÿ˜

  • @stephenwordsmith  Jan 2018

    Hi, Anya.

    Couldn't find your e-mail on your profile. I noticed there was one on your C-is-for-Calculus page, but wasn't sure if that was current.

    The upshot was that I am planning to release a free-to-download compilation of my favourite recent collabs on Bandcamp, and would like to include 'So Far, So Good on it'. If you're happy for the track you made to be a part of it, I humbly request the following things:

    1) Your assent
    2) Some details for the liner notes, i.e. how you'd like to be credited, what you played on the track, and your website so I can link to you from the album
    3) A copy of the track (mp3 or wav, I can convert it at my leisure).

    You can send everything to me at


  • @stephenwordsmith  Jan 2018

    Hi, Anya. I've sent you a message through the 5090 site re: our collaboration 'So Far, So Good' and my awfully big plans for the track.

    If that isn't a useful way to get in touch, let me know via soundboard and I can use whichever channel you prefer.

    Hope you're well and not too busy.

  • @balancelost  Jan 2018

    S'up Anyaaa. Make music. It's the only way.

  • @shortdan  Jan 2018

    Anya! We skipped our annual collab last year didn't we? Hoping we can go back to business as usual this time around ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @writeandwrong  Jan 2018

    Best of luck to you during FAWM 2018!

  • @adforperu  Jan 2018

    Come on Anya, time to put all that uni work in a drawer and forget about it for 28 days...

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2018

    Anya!! I'm hoping you can find the time to make some music!
    FAWM wouldn't be the same without you!!
