Awesome picture, Rockonn! Man, if I ever go high bandwidth, that's going to be my avatar.
Anyway, Earthman - that was some quite impressive stuff! Quite original - you've got a knack for the alternative. Are you, perchance, influenced by a weird British jazz-rock band called Henry Cow? Your work reminds me of them a little.
Well done overall.
Mandolin Song: This was a very good compositional idea - I like the way that the major chord fills suddenly come in over the minor lower-register progression. A timing glitch or two, but otherwise great.
That One Song With The Sounds: That's a great rhythm tone! Good chordal ideas, but the strumming was a little aggressive in parts.
Jebsley Sings: Dude, you built a dulcimer? Cool!
This sounded quite medieval - I can imagine it as the soundtrack for one of those old-school historical documentaries. :D
5-String Guitar: I really liked this, it was very Opeth/Promised Land
-era Queensryche. Great work, considering you only had five strings to play with! Would sound even better with a smooth lead.
Ampy's Crying: Some would call this art! Seriously, it would make a great introduction to a quirky art-rock song
EAEBDD: Good, but too short! Build on it, man - you could turn it into something jazzy, by the sounds of it.
Richmond Hill: This is probably the best song, and the one that reminds me the most of Henry Cow. Really original, and well-arranged. The wah work at the beginning was nice; the dissonant keyboard harmony thingy was awesome; and after that, the idyllic little piano progression just sounded plain creepy! All you need to do is add some trippy vocals, and you've got a prog-rock opus on your hands, Sonny Jim. :D
Just out of curiosity, what did you use to record?
"It's all folk music... I ain't never heard no horse sing!"
- Attributed variously to Leadbelly and Louis Armstrong
If at first you don't succeed, you are obviously not Chuck Norris.
