All the Malcontents by jobu 13 days ago
astounding as usual. is that a flange and compression on the main vocal.

Elephants (Band Version) by jobu 3 years ago
your singing just gets better and better. sounds tight.
Synchronicity II (The Police) by Tony2008 3 years ago
Singing is exceptional but a bit too close to original. playing is tight. I think you should have explored a completely different take on the song. Maybe an acoustic with rolling reverbs for the sppoky factor of the comparison themes. For what you did though is was well done.

Subdivisions (Rush Cover) by RayLaVeau 4 years ago
nice. impressed. IF you personalize this and make it a little less like the orig... nah you could sell this. make a nice vid and boom. I actually had to go watch the live in holland vid version and I'm always always always floored by Neil Pert's drumming. Its probably fair to say Rush is the greatest rock band in history...ever.
Right to be Nervous by jobu 4 years ago
Something I've noticed. Ever since you became a dad your songs are longer than 1 minute. So good to hear from you. This was beautiful.

thanks for the video Tom It was nice of you to do that for me.
Tom Sawyer (Rush Cover) by RayLaVeau 5 years ago
VERY great and respectable cover. Did you use a moog minitaur for the bass synth? I think Geddy actually uses a full on taurus pedal synth.
Basic iPad MIDI Music Station... by woodguy32 5 years ago
looks like a minimoog. well done. I wish you the best in your battle sweetie. how much are you selling them for?

Only Place For Me by RandyBenjamin 5 years ago
my mother loves this song. I think there is an abundance of talent here. Song itself is not for me though. Too much 70's easy listening. On the other hand I would kill to have her singing for me.

DEMUndT FaST few second taster by Blacklilyorchard 5 years ago
trying to find a choir for this piece. It needs it. Whole thing is planned out. Don't want to use the synth for the choir part.

Going to Ground by JHarley 5 years ago
the drums are projecting a player perspective as opposed to the audience. 2 hi hats on one on each side which is a weird choice. Maybe bring the effect of the guitar a little more to the opposite. I hear it creeping over when the chorus effect (in the chorus) kicks in but it is a tad off balance for me. You might be able to throw some ambience in there instead to counter it. love the choice to slow the tempo at the end.
Going to Ground by JHarley 5 years ago
i listened to this while sirens were blaring from just a few blocks away for the first bit of the song. was a perfect pairing... in a good way
Just a minute, Irwin by JHarley 5 years ago
I see the J and M Chain-ness of it but when you start talking I INSTANTLY thought of a band called "Its Immaterial" Look them up on soundcloud if you don't remember them. There is a remix of Driving Away From Home. I gotta be honest... For the longest time I thought you were the singer.but they are from liverpool i think. ( I love random punc.Tu:ati!n )
Push by JHarley 5 years ago
you are so british you out brit the other brits. great song... but relegated to the b-side. (best songs are often on the b-side. b is for best) Think I'm going to redo a j&m chain song. ....when i get paid I should have enough for the new interface.

The White Horses (Revenant) by JHarley 6 years ago
Tons of drudgery everyday from this website and then this drops. I had just finished listening to the dukes of stratosphere and it was like a continuation. I think you are actually friends/workmates/co-producers/in some way affiliated with with andy partridge. (when I say friends I mean acquaintance because I hear Andy is a bit of a **** ). Regardless .. I LOVED IT!

let me down (easily) by Blacklilyorchard 6 years ago
without trying to sound like I have a music pole up my arse, I sometime feel that music needs to transcend format and become more of a sound sculpture. Stuff like this has a heavy influence from artists like Talk Talk/ Mark Hollis in the latter days. Bringing emotion without interpretation. similar to the technique/style used in Drunk Girl Crying. And the above mentioned Song that saved the world.

Analog Friends by jobu 6 years ago
been a while. fantastic. lol you aren't mad cuz I'm doing electronic stuff now? this actually made me cry. mind you i'm a bit emotional atm so a cereal commercial could probably set me off. anyway hope you and the family are well.

An Unremarkable Man by JHarley 6 years ago
dude you know I have amazing respect for you and am probably your second biggest fan but you did something thats a no-no in my books. ripping off velvet undergound is uncool. the chorus for femme fatale. being that you are my age - ish or older( lets say older to make me feel better) i should think you would have recognized it.

im guessing you caught it though just now and are in the works to fix it. in that case... forgiven

i'm only heavily critical because you are one of the best artists on iC and it caught me off guard. its such a good song so at least acknowledge it.

i am part of the cult

glass flowers by Blacklilyorchard 6 years ago
Ya I made the mistake of not buying the whole studio version of live when I had the money. Instead I had to buy a at the lawnmower. I really like the extra instrument you get in studio. Boo at the extra cost for the upgrade.

unleashed cyber dime mix by Lapskin 6 years ago
a little too midimacman-ish for me no context.. no continuity its like you just grabbed a bunch of loops from the ableton library and jammed in a mix. Must be one of those 5 minute compositions. I don't normally come down on people i enjoy listening to but you can do much better than this.


i'm never going to mince words with you.

A Star by JHarley 6 years ago
john... I heart you. your music is inspirational. greatest respect. That being said....

not what I was expecting as a revision. The low end vocal harmony was out of place and it seems like a mashup of 2 songs. It went from dramatic to violent without context. I say this to you because I know you have the chops to understand what I mean. Its almost like an argument between 2 married people that inexplicably turned violent and ended tragically with the survivor left in a puddle of tears and possibly blood wondering what the hell came over them. Mind you... that could also describe most football matches.

bring some fluidity back to the song. I know you know you aren't done.

I'm Not a Star (part) by JHarley 6 years ago
simply unspeakable. seems more like the end of a song than the beginning. Its a trick I learned. When you can't move forward.. work from the end and reconstruct in reverse. then maybe just tag on a sustained note with a single word right at the end (same note as your first in this but a higher octave with some falsetto) of this to punctuate. you always have so much drama in your songs.
day three by Lapskin 6 years ago
[quote="Lapskin"]@Blacklilyorchard it is already on order smiley
word of warning.. some plugins and AUs have not been fixed to work in Lion but most 3rd party still work in logic oddly. Also some DAW controllers do not have updated drivers. You may have to boot with 32 bit enabled along with 64 bit (holding the 3 and 2 down when you hear the boot chime and hold until you see the spinny circle of dashes then release)

so does this mean you are going to pick up a copy of logic studio?
