Invaders from Outer Space

Recommended Posts

I posted a compilation of tunes on BandLab as an album, "Invaders from Outer Space". Every one of these songs have been put together with a lot of help from the forum members here and at the old Cakewalk site. It's taken six years to write enough songs that didn't make me cringe too badly to justify doing this. I have one more song for it, the title track, but I don't know how long it will take to finish that stupid song, so here's the compilation.

A great big thanks to you all for all the help over the years.

Hey Kevin, "Shot in the Back" is terrific --- that groove is infectious and the opening guitar is perfect.  Your vox are outstanding -- I like the rock grit in your voice -- the mix is great -- stellar work mate~~Allan.

Now playing in the background. Very good! Rerouted from my PC speakers to my main monitors!

Nice song Kevin.  Yes I agree - your vocals have a nice pop-rock sound to them. Great song too. I think the lead vocal could use a tiny more lows. I hope someone else will chime in.  Not sure where, and not very much. And just to say - It sounds nice the way it is.  I know what you mean about years!  Some people just pop songs out left and right.  I'm worse than you.  I'm embarrassed to say how long I have been working on several songs!

Toes tappin. Your song has two parts and they are both brilliant. Kudos on the punchy yet controlled drums, any tips?

 

That was really great. And your vocal was awesome as well, great voice, man!

cheers,

-Tom

Also I bet Tom Petty would have loved your song, or Smashmouth - it's a really good song when I can hear it being performed in my mind's ear by various artists.

I listened to a few of the tracks and I'm thinking wow such great songwriting skills and the voice to go with it.
You've got talent for sure.

Hope it sounds okay through the monitors, all those tunes are mixed on headphones. I have to get me some decent ones, I don't like the old KRK 5's I have now. Thanks!

Thank you, Max, nice to know I'm not the only one who works at a snail's pace!

I'm quite fond of my M-Audio BX8 monitors. They also have the BX5. Worth a check. As in check out, not write a check! Black Friday's coming!
