- I was raised in the wilderness of northern california, but I am planning to join mainstream human society on valentine's day, as a symbol of love and peace.
I received my Masters in Music Composition in 1995 - since that time I have been working in IT and writing songs on the side with our band Bigfoot Woman
First of all, thank you so much for sending me this track. I've listened to it three times. I love it. It's beautiful and brilliant. I also dig your description -- the personality and authenticity is there. I know this is not comedy, but I can't help but chuckle. So good. Simple tune, beat, and tempo. Just right. I'm sharing this track to my peeps. I recommended some folks you should check out. It will follow in another email.
Simple yet engaging composition with the rollicking acoustics and steady percussive beat, combined with deeply endearing vocals reminiscent of Nick Cave or The National's Matt Berninger. Similar to Nick Cave as well, I'm digging how this bluesy and atmospheric tune is accompanied by an engaging narrative that's funny, mythological, and longingly melancholic -- all simultaneously. The range this track conveys in just around two minutes is impressive on its own; great work. I'd suggest pursuing PR with Nick Cave and The National as comparison points. I'll be posting it on Obscure Sound in the near future. Reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in success stories/rates regarding my digital PR servicing; I can help if you need it. Thanks for the great submission -Mike
I don't really get this song... i mean, i do... I understand what it's about, but at the same I'm don't. But my view is whatever floats your boat bro... no matter how freaky. Let your freak flag fly. I dig your voice, I dig the production... even the drums. The drums feel sloppy and messy but right. I just didn't connect with the song but your songwriting chops are strong.... would love to see where you go from here once you've moved past bigfoot women.
Love these vocals, instantly grab my attention. Production is nice, simple yet driven forward by the drums. You say it's not a comedy album....but it sure sounds like it. Nice tune, kept me engage throughout...but a little disappointed not to have a resolution to the lyrics...like why the hell is this dude trying to find a bigfoot woman!? Cool tune, I'll give it a share :)
Okay, the title made me laugh. Good production. Love the drum sound. The strings are a nice touch, too. So here's the question: where do you see this song being placed? Hey, I'll give it a spot on my website, but where do you see it going from here? It's a tad short for a lot of radio programmers, although it might find some love on speciality/new-release shows on alt-rock stations. It also might end up on a couple of morning shows for a giggle. And is there more coming? Is this what the band is all about? Is it Cracker/Camper Van Beethoven meets Lonely Island?
I enjoyed this song and felt it had a bit of a Nick Cave vibe to it. As for promotion, I would suggest starting by including some more info about the project (bio, social links, etc.) in your Fluence submission. Since the album has already been released on Bandcamp, it would be hard for a publicist to work the record, which I would usually recommend doing, however you could make a compelling music video for this song and perhaps start a campaign to push that. Besides that you should be playing out in your region as much as possible, submitting the music to local radio and making contacts in your local scene. Best of luck!
