    Karl!!!! I think I figured it out...!!!.. Richard Butler from Psychedelic Furs 😱😱😱😱😱 (god, I was obsessed with new wave! it was everywhere in the underground where I grew up in New York and the city. if someone had told me that new wave was poison I would have gladly died from it. πŸ˜† I know you guys can get a new wave something together with your vocals on it, Karl. consider that a request! lol)

  • @sueawesome 6 weeks

    so sorry you guys, I couldn’t be a better supporter this feb to you two. so glad I got to catch up on comments.. you’re deserving of many more.

    as always.. thank you for sharing your incredible talents. I always walk away from downloading all your songs every year feeling like I just stole all the candy in the candy store.

  • @gm7  6 weeks

    Thx for listening to my eclectic music repertoire this FAWM. I enjoyed your style of music very open and personal. Hope to see you back next year. Stay safe fellow FAWMer .

    Wow I see that you’ve had a super productive FAWM- that’s fantastic! I appreciate the generous words and Thom York - wow- you’re right, what a compliment. Thanks! I think this year there were a lot of various things pulling me away from participating much - but I am recording with my brother this month and releasing a new album on 4-11. So stay tuned πŸ˜€ Thanks again for listening and checking in. I always enjoy listening to your tunes as well and it looks like I’ve got plenty to hear yet! Peace! ✌️

  • @jeff9  7 weeks

    Many thanks for your kind words on "If Anybody Cares" and "Heartache Town". ALL your stuff is fantastic, so I'm especially flattered by your complimentary comments.

  • @sbs2018  7 weeks

    Ah, thank you so very much for taking the time to listen to my DJ track! I so appreciate your comments. Btw, I added the track list under Lyrics (couldn't add it to MixCloud due to their 4 track per artist policy). Thanks again for your awesome support!

  • @nadine 7 weeks

    Thanks for your words on "Nuff Said". They mean a lot to me! This song will be rerecorded with real instruments. I hope you're interested to see the result when it's ready in some months.

    You asked me how I did this. Basically that's 15 years of writing rock music and lacking of guitar, bass and drum skills! The first years were hard, but after having that funny idea to found a internetband it started to work! These guys make my dreams come true! We record some of my songs with real instruments and I learn how to mix these. We also write songs together or I arrange things in a style the other members want. So I talk a lot to people who play other instruments and try to understand how this works and what is playable and what not.

    Still it is my dream to play guitar and bass, but I gave up after two months. Maybe I'll try it once again someday.

  • @gm7  7 weeks

    Thx for the comments of Some Fuzz Guitar.....it had to be done. I'm 67 and as long as my fingers hold out I'm going for it !

  • @karlsburg25  7 weeks

    Wow i love the way different people can interpret different lyrics with completely different musical ideas. Still love to hear that demo. And i tell you what it was the easiest time i had doing that tune. It literally fell out of me. In fact it was so worrying i thought i must have stolen it. Well its not unique in its type of course but i'll wait to see if anyone sues πŸ˜‰ / Seriously loved it. Cheers loads

  • @maesparrow 7 weeks

    Wow guys I just saw that I was in your top 3 and i am.. honestly.. speechless. I really don't know what to say- what an incredible honor to read my name- especially because its YOU. You both are so talented and DEFINITELY also take up a place in my top3 artists I've come across.Yea, thanks so much, I'm going to go listen to your songs now because me being inactive on this site resulted in many new pieces of art from you for me to listen to. You're the best <3

  • @hbusse  8 weeks

    I just wanted to say thanks so much for listening and for all your encouraging comments this month. It makes me feel so much braver as a songwriter to hear that others are impacted by what I’m creating. ❀️

  • @fiddlerblick80  Feb 21

    Hey cheers! I’ve had a load of fun playing with the textures of guitar and Logic’s plugins. There are definitely many more dreamy tracks in my future.

  • @berni1954  Feb 21

    Thanks for filling me in on the technique behind "Strictly for the Birds"

  • @davidtaro  Feb 20

    Thanks mate! Really sweet comment, very much appreciated πŸ‘

  • @gm7  Feb 20

    Great sound on the guitar,,,longer nails do work!

  • @gm7  Feb 19

    THX for kind word on 'The Forever Dance' i was going for that "Neil Young" sound. Good ear you have.

  • @davewermers Feb 18

    Thanks for listening. Thanks for the encouraging comments.

  • @anaezia Feb 18

    Thank you for listening to my song. I am glad that you liked it πŸ™‡

  • @cblack Feb 17

    Hey, glad you enjoyed it! I had a lot of fun with that track!

  • @davidtaro  Feb 17

    Haha. Never get into an argument with a 4 year-old about ANYTHING. They always win. Cheers for the listen and comment!

  • @sbs2018  Feb 17

    Thanks so much for giving my tracks a listen - your comments are so appreciated!!

  • @theodamus  Feb 17

    Thank you so much for the lovely comment! I definitely stretched my ability to interact with air on that one, appreciate very much that it sounded like flow!

  • @fiddlerblick80  Feb 15

    Sounds good, I really dig the words and already hear a couple different sounds. Thanks for the lyric!

  • @majordanby  Feb 15

    Yeah all phone phone work. No other means of recording. Dan has a better handle than me. I’m happy for you to run wild and produce whatever you feel.

  • @fiddlerblick80  Feb 15

    What's your email, so I can send ideas?

  • @fiddlerblick80  Feb 15

    Hi! Looks good, I'll mess around with these words today. And you've done these songs with your iPhone??

  • @fiddlerblick80  Feb 15

    Let’s collab. Ideas?

  • @chrisshepard Feb 15

    Those poor discarded school kids. πŸ˜‰

  • @gm7  Feb 14

    Thanks for the comments on Gotta Get Better...glad you liked it.

  • @nancihobson1  Feb 13

    Thanks for your comments on my songs. Came at a very good time, I was disgusted with the last one, nothing like I wanted it to be. I'm in the sign business, and it reminds me of newbies who pick crazy letter styles and add outlines shadows and fades and end up with something unreadable. That Cheap Perfume song of mine is pretty much unlistenable to me. So I appreciate the encouragement, I needed it! Guess I'll try again after all πŸ˜€

  • @porrectus  Feb 13

    Thanks for the kind words on Run Away. I feel that " Oh " can mean so much.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 13

    Thanks! I'd only heard your first tune this year, meaning to come back and hear some more and you're only one shy of 14 😁 Great work! I'll have to catch up later.

  • @maesparrow Feb 12

    What is your spotify name? I will stream all of your songs!!! πŸ˜€

  • @davidtaro  Feb 11

    Just realised you guys are nearly at 14 already. Songwriting machine!

  • @joana01 Feb 11

    Hi, thanks for your kind comment on my song wake up, means a lot. Also, I am so happy that your music is on spotify! πŸ˜€

  • @davidtaro  Feb 10

    Hi mate, thanks for the listen on Fairytale Blues - that Nilsson comparison has pretty much made my year πŸ˜€

  • @gm7  Feb 10

    Great vocals moody deep. Keep them coming

  • @gm7  Feb 10

    New song..collab with @robynmackenzine ang @gm7

  • @sourcedecay  Feb 8

    Thanks for the kind comment on "Wandering" (collab with skylermf)!

  • @gm7  Feb 8

    Thx for the kind words..just love stuff..very captivating voice and guitar work. Very nice of you to comment on my different styles.
    I have a collab with another FAWMer soon

  • @artie Feb 7

    Thank you for the comment! πŸ˜€ We were all set for this skirmish and ready to write something silly af, and then we saw the topic and were like, "Oh shit!" πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚

  • @faceofeinstein  Feb 7

    Hey man, thanks for the positive comments. I was listening to the same stuff while skateboarding (horribly) in the 90's.

  • @davidtaro  Feb 7

    Haha, and the other comments too! Weird mutual listening party going on there πŸ˜‚

  • @davidtaro  Feb 7

    Cheers for the riff feedback! Been listening to your songs this afternoon - really really top stuff. Am keeping an eye out for the rest this month πŸ‘

  • @porrectus  Feb 7

    Thanks for the list and the comments, I appreciate it.

  • @heidiserwer  Feb 7

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments on my songs. Appreciate your generosity!

  • @leah0k Feb 7

    Thank you for the super thoughtful comment! I always look forward to y’all’s creations as well!

  • @wacha  Feb 7

    Thanks for your feedback on "The Devil's Playground"

  • @wacha  Feb 6

    Thank you so much for your kind words on "Mildred Is Free", I'll take a Dylan comparison any day!

  • @tan482 Feb 5

    Hey! Great to see you're back this year. Not sure how much I'll get done this year, with a 10 month old and a 4yo 😝 but we shall see. Will try to at least do some listening. Happy FAWM 2021!

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 5

    LOL. I agree. Subtle irony is much meaner than just calling someone a dumb motherfckr. πŸ˜‰

    And I do think no one is fully irredeemable. Though I think Trump is trying hard to be in that group of people that is.

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 5

    Ah thanks matey for your comment. It really was a release of all the pressure i had been feeling that day.

  • @bradbrubaker  Feb 4

    What quote did I unwittingly quote? I honestly have no idea.

  • @sbs2018  Feb 4

    Thanks for the praise on β€œUnderground,” Much appreciated!

  • @cleanshoes  Feb 4

    Thanks so much for your lovely comment on Living on the Moon!

  • @sph  Feb 3

    Thanks for the comment on my first tune. Yes, a voice would be interesting - in the current form it's a bit to repetitive

  • @mccannrs Feb 3

    Thanks for the comment on Windy Cindy! I'll never complain about a Beatles comparison, lol!

  • @heidiserwer  Feb 3

    Thanks so much for listening and your comment on my song. That comparison is quite an honor! Looking forward to hearing your music this month!

  • @haim  Feb 2

    Hi man. loved your second song. great vibe. Have a great fawm.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 2

    Thanks for the listen and comment on plinkplunkponk. FYI I left out mention of the tetanus-laden garden fork with tines at knee level protruding from the garden trolley for I felt none would believe it. There's reason for all the stuff inside--there always is--but just as well its' a stone floor, the blood doesn't show so much.

  • @berni1954  Feb 2

    Thanks for giving my collab with Doug (Just One) a listen. Happy you liked it. I am so very pleased you liked my playing. You wouldn't believe the number of takes it took to do that simple solo πŸ˜‰

  • @hbusse  Feb 2

    Ah thanks for pointing me that direction! Absolutely beautiful listen. Evidently with 283 MILLION listens on Spotify, I am the one late to the party.

  • @hbusse  Feb 2

    Thanks for the listen and comment on my song Flutter! I'm not familiar with Yann Tiersen, I'll have to check them out πŸ˜€

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 1

    Yeah mate just outside sheff. Its a far cry from writing songs in my thai hammock but hey ho, am grateful i can still work at least and i got the opposite of you. I usually love the iphone work as yes it keeps it fairly straight forward. Now i faced with my whole studio!! πŸ˜‰

  • @quork  Feb 1


  • @guatecoop  Feb 1

    You always amaze me how your ideas are so well thought out and then executed. So nice to hear your music again.

  • @heidiserwer  Feb 1

    Hi! Happy FAWMing!

  • @kovbleu  Feb 1

    Hello!! I'm so looking forward to hearing your music again! Happy FAWMing! 😊

  • @sueawesome Feb 1

    hi dan and karl!

    if the rest of us get one song from you guys I hardly call that a failure

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Feb 1

    Hoping to hear the Major Danby in action again this year! Happy Fawming!

  • @ustaknow Jan 31

    Hello! Happy FAWM2021!
    - I am honored you'd "follow" me
    - I always wonder "why", hahhh, but not asking; I work in the vaccum of my mind and presume no listeners πŸ˜€

    I try to keep track, not many, - feel free to freely comment. The folks that work with me know that's not just lip service. Once I know a person, "sounds good, like it" then, takes on more meaning; but, that takes time.

  • @quork  Jan 16

    Happy FAWMing!
