I put two songs in my music website: "Please Pretty Please" is the song on top, and "Black & White" (it was played on the Radio BBC by (DJ) Tom Robinson: whose song "2-4-6-8 Motorway" had lots of play on MTV and/or VH1 in the 80's, and has collaborated with Elton John, Brian May of Queen, and Peter Gabriel) is the next song down. Please tell me how you like the music and how it can be improved, and I promise to return the favor. Here is my link:

Nice! The first is very reggae of course, the second sounds 80s which is coming back.
Any chance you could review the midi arrangements I made? It’s my most recent post.
Many paid and free VSTs as well as Kontakt libraries. As well as HW synths/drum machine and acoustic instruments.

I chose to listen to "Black and White", your air-play champion: The song starts
with a clean guitar riff and heavily reverberant chants in the background.
The lascivious vocals give the song something psychedelic doomy, suitable
for the upcoming Helloween day. 8)

I really like the guitar playing and the guitars. The singing takes at least
getting used to. Overall, you can see a nice motif that holds the song
together. And the 2:40 minutes that the song lasts are very short! Nice,
soulful psychedelic song with a lot of expression! :tu:

Please Pretty Please - Love the drum intro, especially that snare. Nice and crisp. The vocals on this one are a trip. Also loved the Moog solo. The whole vibe of this one is just so cool. Great mix on this one.

Black And White - Wasn't sure what to expect with a title I'd seen a dozen times before. But the song, as usual, was nothing like what I expected. This is right out of 60s 13th Floor Elevators and the like. Really took me back to my misspent youth. Very well done. Probably my favorite of the two.

Liked it.

It's off the beaten track for me. Not the sort of noise I collide with often.

First song, hints of Gang of Four with an echo of Cleaners From Venus. It's got a post punk feel, yet doesn't lean uncomfortably into the past.
Second song, reminds me of one of XTC's better moments, with a touch from the Black Lips. I like the controlled shambolic delivery, makes for compelling listening.

Fits neatly into the 'pre-future post-retro shoe wave' category.
eh?

Dunbar,
Thank you for listening and commenting! I appreciate it! I didn't know there was a 'pre-future post-retro shoe wave' category. I went back more than a month and did not notice a thread from you. If you have music you want me to review, leave me a link.
