Short on time, long on excuses. Guess I'll just have to sleep less.
Happy FAWMing, everyone!
Update 12/02 - pausing for a breather, more songs later in the month...
Update 19/02 - I've got a couple more collabs that I'm aiming to finish off, but otherwise that might be me done for this year. I've got a big, one-off project that's overlapping with FAWM, and it seems I don't have the energy for both. Apologies for not pulling my weight with commenting this year; I'm sad about that. I'm hopeful I'll find a little more time yet before the end of the month.

Coming back to check out the ones I missed. Hope you are good, EF.
Ahhhh thanks a ton man! I can't wait to start listening through all your stuff next week; glad to see you cranked out a ton of stuff this February!
Just wanted to let you know - I was out waking the dogs this morning, and I couldn't stop singing the chorus of 'Hiding In The Bathroom'. I've also been having the same with the chorus of 'Yeah, You're Going To Struggle' (especially the harmonies on "yeeeaaah") at various points over the weekend. I only heard them a few times, and that was back on Friday or Saturday.
Hey IndispensableFawmer - looking forward to your new tunes - they always spark joy!
Just listened to all yer tunes in a row. Fabulous. I'll get comments in soon.
By the way... in 2016, NancyRost, Standup, Pfoo and I wrote a 4-track collaboration called "Hiding in the Bathroom". But that is not why that song of yours was my favorite of the four. 😀
I FB messaged you a song... See what you think. No worries either way. 😀
Hey, shot you an idea...via FB
hello and happy FAWM! I'm very excited to see what you come up with this year, it is always a delight.
Thanks, yes it is quite a journey.. Even now with fawm, still struggling to release the first song. waiting to see what you are preparing!
Oh the pink unicorn latte is all too real. ‘The magical drink is a pink hot chocolate (made using white chocolate) finished with whipped cream, sprinkles, raspberry sauce and topped a with a “big fluff of candy floss”.’ 😱
Excellent tag line this year.
“Guess I’ll just have to sleep less” has always been my informal life motto, for better or worse.
Came by to ssy hi..and to hear your wonderful music
I'm so so so looking forward to your songs!!!
Happy FAWM to you! 😀
Yup, that’s pretty amazing. I loved it!
Thank you thank you! I may have listened to it, but sometimes a good example is helpful to me.
I'm not sure how I feel about calling pizza disgusting... Could we say that it is definitely better with vegetables on it. That, I can get behind
I feel like we need to write a GdJ song about pizza - or pizza imposter.... Let's write a song about calzone
Have a great FAWM. Always a treat to hear new EF.
Aww, thanks for the positive post. Here's hoping I can get some stuff written. If I don't (or anything listenable) have a great year!
Hi EF, you're right, I'm hoping to be more active this fawm. Let me know if you fancy doing a collab btw!
Would LOVE to collaborate with you again. Name the time and topic. I even took some gear out of some old boxes yesterday, may actually have a recording set up too if you fancy a longer percolating piece. I might experiment with a midi keyboard I had buried under a blender.
Closer all the time...
Hey, Jacqui! I wanted to say thank you. You really helped me a couple of months back, when I was struggling. A few words you said made a big difference to my musical approach. I'm more grateful than you could ever know. I hope you're doing ok.
THE. SAME! 😀
Good to see you too! 😀
Hiiii! have a great february. Waiting to hear you.
«Oh allright, I might go for a few tunes,» the viking said, lazely glancing over the bloody battlefield. «England was a rather easy win.» said Bjolnor, his mate and Axe-sharpener. «Aye, it was» said the viking «we should probably write a song to celebrate. Lets find some locals who haven’t had their Vocal chords ruined by too much mead». And so they wandered across the fields, cursing the rain
I humbly invite you to beat my dumb ass to the finish line with whatever spare moments you have ♥︎
the shortness of time only amplifies the intensity of the presence!
Here's hoping I can get something written this year. But always looking forward to the new Expendable Friend stuff!
Why thank you! As always looking forward to your tunes 😀
Gotcha! All-cat grunge-pop comin' atcha!
Good to see you're here!
You grab the even ones :3
Hopefully I’ll do better than last year! Any recommendations for predominantly lyric fawmers would be appreciated 😀
Thanks for your soundboard message 😀 I just spotted that you included Iron & Wine in your influences - I just discovered them last year, and "The Creek Drank The Cradle" was "my" album of 2018 (yup, just 16 years late!). It influenced the songs I managed to write/record last year, which I've just released on my Bandcamp. Great taste 😁 See you here in a few days!
Ooh this biog looks fresh!
I wasn't intending to be quite so stealthy 😝
Hmm. Let me think about it..........Ok I thought about it. I'll do it. :-p
10x10 4 this year?
Oooo. Just listened to a song on your Soundcloud EP. That is some sweet stuff you have there. Watchlist'd! 😁 Hope to hear more from you! Happy FAWMing.
Hi, thanks for popping by. Yes, have a great February.
I'll be tucking into your ear candy as usual...seeing as you're out of toffees
Hope you're back in full force this year! Looking forward to hearing your work!
Hope all is well with you and you find the time to make some incredible music this year. I say it every year - but I don't care about being a broken record when your music is always so freaking amazing. Maybe a collaboration will happen someday. A guy can dream, right? 😀
Hope you're in this year. We all need songs that teach us if we're turning into a dic...I mean parsnip. 😛
EF, I appreciate you. I can't predict how you're going to blow my mind this year (as is the nature of mind-blowing), but I suspect it will happen. Thank you in advance.
I WAS HERE FIRST.
... Do I get a toffee or something?
