My name is Brandon. I specialize in music (though I draw as well). I play guitar, bass, keyboards, and sing in a band called lifelikepictures. Josh (my drummer) and I are influenced by Bark Psychosis, the Beach Boys, the Beatles, Bjork, Blur, the Cure, Dirty Three, Disco Inferno, the Eels, the Flaming Lips, Godspeed! You Black Emporor, Hood, the Jesus & Mary Chain, Joy Division, Low, Mazzy Star, Modest Mouse, My Bloody Valentine, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, the Pixies, Radiohead, Slowdive, the Smashing Pumpkins, the Smiths, Sonic Youth, Spacemen 3, Spiritualized, the Stone Roses, the Stooges, the Swirlies, the Velvet Underground, and Yo La Tengo (as well as several other bands).
Just added an unfinished song to our My Space (link provided above) that I worked on last night. It's our first real experimentation with a keyboard dominated song (most of our other stuff is guitar based).
Welcome to the forum & thanks for posting! You have a plethora of good influences to draw on.
As always, I'm interested in what the vocals are going to be like. This song has morphed a lot from this. The keyboards add a very different element that what I recall from previous versions.
One thing I would like carried over is the small echoing 'clicks' or any other random noise-scapes mingled in with the track. i think they add a vague narrative to a song that might work for this one... you think, or no?
