I listen to quirky hipster music and I write quirky hipster music.

I have decided that this year I want to really focus on quantity and not worry about quality or do too much self-editing. I realize that is kind of the whole point of FAWM to begin with, but I still need to remind myself and put it out there. QUANTITY. Yeah. (aka force myself to finish songs)

    Thanks for your lovely comments! 🙂

    Howdy, Benjamin, thanks for comment! Quickest zong killed for me yet. I think you've chosen right strategy. Polishing will never breath life into a corpse and too flashy clothes makes it hard to see if your song got way too many toes! We just have to release those toads, hoping for the occasional prince!

    The effort was totally worth it because it's SUCH a great sound.

    I could definitely hear the tasty blues tones but that track was takin names and kicking @$$

    Love "The Lamb is Worthy," both song & video presentation! Nice cajon technique with the brush filling the hi-hat function. I'll have to try that again. Much easier than a shaker at that rate.

    Benjamin, thank you bro!

    Thanks for listening to my silly children's album! Glad you got a They Might Be Giants vibe, they're a big inspiration for me (their No! album in particular).

    Thank you for your comment 🙂🙂

    Thank you for your comment; it makes very happy that you think my song could be impactful!

    I love every one of your influences. Oh the notwist! Been forever since I thought about them or the microphones. I’ll have to give them a listen (in March 😀

    Yeah it's amazing that all that music is still out there! There have been a few people returning after years away recently, they did some 20th anniversary (!) livestreams last year that brought some folks back into the fold. Anyway would be cool to see you over there if you do fancy making a glorious return!

    I've only been songfighting since about 2017 but I don't believe it has changed much over the years, no! The main website is still very old-school internet, hehe. What name did you submit under when you were active over there?

  • @vomvorton  Feb 2

    Aha! I love that there's so much crossover between FAWM and Song Fight over the years! I've been submitting over there for a few years now. Definitely a good motivator when FAWM is out of season!
