Hard To Know by V-Neck Sweater

Really reminds me of some 90s rock/alt. Vibes like Fight Club (The Pixies - Where is My Mind) and reminds me of the scene where all of the credit/banking buildings are blowing up. I feel the vocals definitely need some more definition and to be brought to the top of the mix. The space is nice but a bit cluttered, guitar licks/bends overpower the track as a whole. I'd also recommend (If I was acting as producer) some vocal harmonies, oo's, ah's, during instrumental portions. Production is good and arrangement flows well. The introduction of bells towards the end is refreshing as well. Overall nice vibe and tone, should easily fit into some light rock/indie/alternative genres.

At first listen, love the bumbling beat you've got going on. The overdriven sound is really nice as well. Although, the vocals, at times, seem to become a bit harsh on the ears frequency wise. The count from one to ten with the layers and panning create a huge sound that pulls you into the music and really excites the middle of the song. I'm actually really impressed with the overall production and the creative ideas within. The panning of vocals helps create "fresh" sounds within the beat and the transitions are spot on. This really is a roller coaster of a beat with fantastic transitions and a great overall progression. Fantastic job, the attention to detail is phenomenal.

Oh My by Claus Zinger

Sounds great for a singer-songwriter type of sound. Feels a bit more alternative/folk than blues though. I'd be interested in hearing a version recording the guitar and vocals separately with some professional studio mixing techniques to really bring this song to life. There is also a lot of potential here to put a band behind the song for added impact as well as some guitar and vocal doubling. I would love to hear a change up to the strumming too, but as it is, the style and progression fit what you're doing with the piece as a whole. You really do have a lot of options to expand upon your work!

Music bed is great for what you're doing. Not too distracting, but exciting enough to provide a good backing. Although, the voice-over seems a bit boring and too scripted. Pulls me away from the message and, as an engineer, I can hear edits and sibilance problems with the processing. Have you considered female vocal talent? With this industry's overwhelming male population it would provide a stronger "hook" for you guys to catch clientele. 

Overall, it's a good video and inviting as a whole. Great idea for a site and I sincerely hope that it works out well!
