The songs are really poor quality...but since were a relatively new band were trying to get out music out there and establish a fan base before we hit the studio in mid July. These are the first two songs we wrote and right now were working rather hard to write 5 or 6 more to play a show in Late July.
the vocals are rather soft and at times the music is overpowering but remeber this was done on a crappy four track tape deck. anyways have a listen.
seth- a scandal to remeber

i really wish i could hear it better. it sounds like it (father's day) would be a groovy song if it was recorded better.

I'm not really going to make any criticisms until i can hear it better and hear all the parts the way they were meant to be heard.

well thanks for taking a listen anyways, its so hard to get a good sound in the place we recorded and with the crappy equiptment we recorded them with. Our singer works at a radio station doing janatorial work and the lead DJ there said he would record us in his home studio for pretty cheap so hopefully well have a decent demo out in mid July, so ill post up these two recoded much better then.

Here's my critique: It is a killer song. You guys play tight
the recording kinda sucks cos...
I realize this is one take. Also I realize you were in a hurry.
But dig this. One takes are awesome in their display of integrity. But you get too much crosstalk in the mics.
I can hear guitar in your vocals drowning the mic. I cant hear the bass in it, which tells me you dont have the bass nearly high enough (its close, maybe more mids?) on your vocals.
I realize this aint your equipment, but you obviously have a computer.
Have you ever tried to do this yourself, with your PC?
I would try this:
Record just the music. I dont hear a crosstalk in the instruments, but I do hear the vocals being shredded (their fidelity) by the prescense of other instruments. Then do a vocal track using a cheap pair of headphones to monitor the music, and record that onto its own track.
I listened to Salt and Switchblades BTW
I have more suggestions, but long winded answers dont help you.
Keep up the good work. Your fraternity is AWESOME.
God Bless
Dale

P.S. can you make thes songs downloadable Im on Dial up and man I hear five seconds wait ten minutes and hear five more.
