So apparently I'm doing mid-80s pop now.

Pretty good! Like the tone and the dreamy 80’s vibe. Reminds me of Slowdive a little actually...

Thanks :-) I don't really know where it's going so I'm throwing it at my writing partner and see what it turns into :-)

Thanks! I appreaciate it. Here's another I've been working on for a while. I just cant seem to get this one right, I don't know what it is. At first I thought maybe it was just ear fatigue from listening to it too much. I let it sit for a few months and am still just not 100% happy with it. Maybe someone here might have some input that could help me out?

Another great one. I wouldn't want to ruin your dish here, since i don't have any clue on how to make good music. I just love to listen to it :') The one thing that i noticed is that the synth from the beginning is playing throughout the whole track. That's probably on purpose but maybe if you give other instruments (drums or the other synth / bass) some room here and there, it could maybe make things more interesting? I recently noticed that the ambient/downtempo music that i enjoy the most, has almost always some unique sound in it that doesn't show up in the rest of the track. Maybe that together with the above mentioned breathing room of the synthline could help you out. lol im not sure if this makes any sense or if it could help. :lol:

Hey, thanks for the feedback! I think you're definitely right. Honestly I have that problem in pretty much all my songs. I always have a really hard time coming up with a complimentary verse to switch to and usually end up just repeating the same main chord progression throughout. I'm gonna work on coming up with a bridge or something to make it not so repetitive. Also, don't sell yourself short. I checked out a few of your tunes and really dig it! Especially the one with the Parks Canada 1984 sample. I like the sort of retro lo-fi vibe you have going on. Definitely reminiscent of Twoism. Anyways, thanks again for the feedback, I really appreciate it!
