    My new DAMSELFLY album 'An Awkward Bow' is out now

    Evening fellow NSC'ers.

    Please excuse the indulgence of its own thread, but I know not everyone who's into music checks out the various 'Albums...' threads.

    So, a quick heads up for fans of electronica, post-rock, instrumental etc action, that my new album is now out. You can stream, download here (CD on the way too).....

    https://damselfly1.bandcamp.com

    Of local interest, apart from most tracks being inspired by the local area, the cover photo was taken near Ditchling Beacon, looking back towards Brighton and the sea.

    I hope some of you might like it. Thanks for listening.

      Good stuff.

      I prefer Marshall stacks and people in cloaks etc. But it’s always great to support anyone producing art.

      Rock on. Or indeed (post) rock on.

      It is decent Mr Joe well done

      1-2 minor comments (constructive ones I hope) and it could be the shitty speakers ony my laptop or the stream
      Track 1 has a high pitched noise and I cant tell if its meant to be there or not, if it is I cant make it out
      More bass on the drums mate

      Good job though, up my street 8/10

      Thanks Kosh. I'm quite partial to Marshall stacks and people in cloaks now and again too

      Thanks Maffew, always good to get some constructive feedback, and an 8/10 is a damn fine score! There's quite a few ambient and not-so-ambient high pitched bits across a few tracks, some guitar feedback, some synth, all intentional but possibly not to everyone's tastes (especially NOT to my wife's tastes!). Very possible that it could be excentuated by 'thinner' speakers. You're also not alone with the drum comment, a couple of people have said they'd prefer heavier / base'ier drums. That one's a bit horses for courses I think, and I've long been a fan of Grant Hart's Husker Du drum sound, so there's a homage / nod to the great man there.

      Cool stuff, yes I am not listening on the best speakers (they arent rubbish neither cos I just put some in to relisten).

      I love ambientish/electroish stuff and instramental and it's decently produced. A bit bassier/more leading drum would turn it from something I listened to as opposed to something I might bop to in the kitchen if that makes sense, I like all varieties of music to an extent, and wish I could do it so thumsup pal

      Look forwards to listening to this.
      Particularly after the Grant Hart comment

      That's probably where the Grant / Husker similarities end to be honest, other than maybe a sense of melody within the noisier parts at all times, although I am a huge fan of both. I've also tried to get a bit of two of my other big 80's and 90's influences into some parts with the guitar / feedback parts - Thin White Rope and My Bloody Valentine. I like the idea of trying to mix some of those sounds with electronica.

      Cheers. I've re-uploaded the first track again just in case there is something that sneaked in to the original upload that's not meant to be there (if that can even happen, I'm not overly techie when it comes to this stuff). I have pretty bad tinnitus on the left side so am never 100% sure if some sounds are real or in my head! (which makes mixing fun as you can imagine).
