So Slow by Mara

Wendy Redden

I usually enjoy the psych rock sound, but personally just a little bit too much reverb for me in the vocals. Unique enough voice (reminds me of Foxygen a bit)  I don't feel it needs to be altered very much. I also feel the ending of the song is a little abrupt. I do feel there is something here, if it can just be tweaked a bit. Thanks for sharing! 

Radio Flote

especially loved the way overboard feedback/reverb on the vocals, spice it up with interludes, chorus or something different.

Earbuddy

Smoky, sinister vibe that will leave listeners intrigued and wanting more.

Pretty nice track...a solid mixdown and master would make this amazing...

No Control VV by Vera Vera

Earbuddy

Really enjoy this understated garage rock.  Hints at some massive power but never unleashes it, so it comes across like a grittier version of Fear of Men or 2:54.  I'd love to hear more and learn more about Vera Vera.

The Future, Forever by Vera Vera

Mike Mineo

"The Future, Forever" creatively incorporates versatile live percussion with both entrancing synth arpeggios and post-punk guitar crawls, resulting in a striking sound that Vera Vera should be very proud of. I'm particularly fond of the verses around 01:30 where these electronic and rock-driven elements combine beautifully over the wonderfully emotive vocals, which remind me of a bunch of great vocalists -- from Brian Molko to Robert Smith. I recommend you spread this track around and promote it as a single; there's a lot of radio and blog potential here. Keep up the great work. I'll be posting this on Obscure Sound in the near future. Also feel free to reach out to me at mike@obscuresound.com if interested in hearing about my digital PR servicing (rates, success stories, etc). -Mike

Like the sound, reminds me a bit of Julian Casablancas+The Voidz, but more accessible.

The Haunting by Mara

Eric Danton

Dig the icy guitar, but song plods where it could be explosive: at the 16-second mark, for example, where the rest of the band comes in. There's already a post-punk Interpol thing happening here, why not bust it open like they do on "Untitled" on the first album? More instrumental contrast and crisply defined parts would help.

Jackson Balling

This track fits the title very well, right off the bat. Without any impression of the rest of the EP/album this track was included in, it feels like an interlude track that's meant to slow everything down for the listener to offer another perspective of your sound. If that was intentional, then it is very well done.

Like the previous track that I auditioned of yours, I really like the way it goes from the chorus and drops back to the verse, at around 1:12. It's restrained and nice. I feel like I want to hear a clean version of the vocals though, its not that the processing is bad, necessarily, just needs some contrast. Have you tried juxtaposing clean versions of the vox with processed versions? Cheers. 

Jackson Balling

The flow of this song surprised me about halfway through, when the guitars proved themselves to be leading the track while the vocals and drums followed in spectacular fashion. The lo-fi vocals and reverb-filled guitars really complement each other well in this short track, and when mixed with the blasting drums of the chorus the song really takes off and satisfies throughout.

Shades by Mara

Jono Kane

This is good. I feel like there are some aspects of the production that could be improved. When the ride kicks in at around 1:30, it's a bit hot, also, the bass is mixed hot too... not too bad though, it's just really pronounced. I love the way it drops back to the verse at 2:20, very cool. Tweak the levels/compression/eq on the drums and bass a bit and you'll be set. Cheers. 

Brian Pokora

Would like to hear more!

just works for us at WG

Jackson Balling

This track is more quirky than the others, perhaps because the vocals stand out in the mix more than ever before. I hear some Jack Steadman tones among the noise which works wonders with this sound that you've created with this release. The song goes by fast but drew me in immediately, and I have much love for that reoccurring creep of a riff that comes in past the fade in.

Diamonds by Mara

Brent Faulkner

I like the dark, mysterious vibe given off here - the production definitely stands out , all anchored and driven by the exceptional drum groove.  I like/understand the approach taken with the vocals, but I also would've liked to have heard a bit more clarity specifically within the vocal production; the lyrics at times were a bit hard to decipher.   Enjoying things with a certain enigma and 'blackness' about them,  this was a worthwhile listen and certainly showcases potential.  

Jackson Balling

This being the second track I've heard from this group I've got to say that it really helps me understand the sound a lot better. The lo-fi sound is wonderfully executed and it keeps me engaged to the great guitar work and almost haunting vocals.

Paul McFadyen

Quite an interesting track, not the kind of thing we'd cover on the site but definitely something I'd listen to

Alan Poyer

Shivers....this right here. 

Smoky reverb and distortion levels create a swirling blend of sultry tones laced with despair, want, greed, and other dark things we secretly love. 

Was shocked by 1:44 - the offbeat entry actually works out. Takes the listener by surprise and resolves 10 seconds later. Well done.

Will definitely add this to the blog queue for http://awakingdreamer.com and share it out. Thanks for sending!

This is great - I love the contrast between the vocals and the guitars. I had a quick listen to the rest of the EP as well, and the quality is high all the way through.
