When Battle Tapes replies to a FB question: New song “No Good” from forth coming EP. and you’re just dancing around your tiny apartment endlessly to the 41 second sound bite teaser. FB needs an automatic repeat button.
—-April 5 Update – RELEASE on Baeble Music
——-April 6 Update – Actually released on official Battle Tapes Soundcloud! I FUCKING LOVE THIS TRACK
I really, really have not been inspired to do any of my silly fan art lately. But then I see this shirt and it looks like someone had a lame idea similar-ish-esque to my Greater Than 84 piece. Ray Jones, I seriously dig it.
So today I’m on reddit, and I see this ad on the side for GameOfBands, reddit’s longest running songwriting competition. I click it and read the greeter post, and the steps involved, and all of the rules and regulations are novel long and I don’t see myself joining the club as a songwriter. But I fall in love with the very first track I click, Broken Walls by scottpontiac, skerry1 and abyssmalstar. The theme for Round 98 is Stolen, and it looks like all the lyrics and music transpired from other songs.
It’s not the best song in the world. It has parts cut together, sloppily woven riffs and I’ve heard much better mashups, but it’s good for a two week deadline. In fact, it’s incredible for a two week deadline. It’s the imperfections that make it so freaking good. The point is, it’s like stepping back into my Myspace days of Zero Star and finding bands and music and raw talent I never would have found any other way. That’s what it’s all about.
