boygenuis: After listening to this on repeat a bunch, I think I can find a place for this in my collection.

This is very pretty. The vocal melody reminds me of something I can't place; I reckon that's a good thing that it feels familiar yet unique.

Groovy. Great garage rockin' sound. I dig the bridge/middle eight.

I love the mood here. Some of the down-and-out imagery in the lyrics is laid on pretty thick, but the mood and that voice carries it.

I stand in solidarity with your lo-fi punk rock ethos. But this is just too messy for me to hear it.

I like this a lot. Just the right mix of spooky and knowingly dumb.

Pretty, but soundtracky. Wish there was a little bit more to it.
Perfect Placement (rough mix)

The noisy elements kind of distract from the lyrics, which is bothersome given that this is attempting intimacy. I like it, but I'd mix the noises down a bit.

I really like elements of this. The guitar sounds are neat on top of the percussion. However, it doesn't go anywhere -- or at least doesn't go anywhere that grabs my attention. Good, not great.

To quote Spinal Tap, "there's a thin line between clever and stupid." I don't think this is poorly executed. I think it's done perfectly for what it is. I kind of think that what this is is poorly conceived.

I agree with TNB, the chorus is really catchy. Overall, has kind of a Wilco thing going on. Not bad at all.

Soundtrack-tastic. Belongs in an animated short. Agree that the sounds are great. The snores kind of take me out of the music, but almost imply a narrative or something. Needs a cartoon.

I love the voice and the atmospherics in the back. The lyrics don't jump out at me. Still, nice mood piece.
Life I Lead (Album Version)

Score: +0
Agree that this is competent, workmanlike alt-country. I'd need something more peculiar swirled in to love this. Good performance and recording, though.

I really like this. Great slightly-odd pop feel. Nifty arrangement. All the parts fit together quite nicely.

Great little pop deal here. Seems effortless.
