A blog started where someone puts an iac songlink up (not their OWN song ) and the next person who answers the thread comments on it in some way and leaves a songlink that the NEXT person answering the thread could comment on..............and they in turn would leave a songlink for the person after them.....and so on.. If you wanna keep the songchain going,put a comment on the last song of the thread and then leave your own link and i'll add it here....Many thanks to all who've participated and introduced me to alot of cool new songs..:)Station Owner Steve Ison

Winter
"Interesting atmospheric number, the singer has quite an unusual voice, deep and smooth but with some unexpected highs. The rythmic change in the middle caught me suprise, mostly made of of vocal samples, but in an usnusual way. Good idea for athread this as I would never have come across this otherwise. My suggestion for listen too is Sally Strawberry's Come Back To Bed one of my favorite songs and it aint even blues :-)"........Andy Broad................................................................ OK Jammers I'm gonna respond to your choice but not to Steve's (this is "chain" right? just trying to define the protocol) Too out there for me but I'd better listen again because I'm a notorious blockhead when it comes to new (for me) styles. I suggest this one for the next participant, just because it is unlike anything else on the site and it really grew on me after a few listens. http://iacmusic.com/songs.aspx?SongID=56307&ArtistID=93426"....Kozy Kingz added to station 3/28/2008 10:17:12 PM

Song of birds
RE: Magoo - "Song Of Birds" The song, itself is lovely. Well-constructed. Pretty melody. But the production gets stuck in my craw. The chirpy birdie noises are more distracting than soothing to me. And some of the other little flourishes do the same the cymbal splashes and tympani. If you could leave the production alone and let the song stand for what it is (even the violins are fine), you would have a lovely, beautiful piece.

Brian Booth
Something to Say (IAC re-mastered)
Thanks, Sam; when I clicked the link, I was quite pleased to see it was a Brian Booth tune. He became a friend and supporter, when I first came to this site. Even though he's taken a leave of absence for almost a year, I'm glad that his songs are still up. His English-folk songwriting style is always warm and expressive. A good soul. I hope he'll be back soon. "Something to Say" is "a song about parting". As usual, Brian's words are to the point, but there's a feeling of yearning and regret just under the surface. I especially like the little lyrical twist at the end. A song that everybody can relate to, with some great harmonies and a line or two of a capella, for emphasis. Excellent song.

"How sweet.." Great choice Andy. I love the artists treatment - the fresh lilt and quasi-jazzy phrasing/chording. The second guitar added little for me would have preferred a second instrument -Hammond organ, wurlitzer piano, or even chromatic harmonica. Still he "made it his own" didn't he? Good, no great cover! OK . Here's one that seemed to be a big hit when it was added to IAC. Very slick, and "downtown" but I love her voice and my wife comments on the accompaniment every time.

LOL!!). As you know, I think, Steve, I ran off to Eric's place just as I was starting up at IAC and spent a night at his place, recording most of "Glen Hill" on day 1 and "Oh, Leigh" as a spontaneous jam on day 2...Eric's brilliant......................Hugh Hamilton added to station 3/29/2008 2:49:53 PM

The Locust
Official Verdict - Nobody Gives a Shit
Well it looks like me who's gonna have to enter the intensely brutal,skull-crushing place of Gremislavs.About as far removed from 'Melody' as its possible to get.Infact its a world where melody's probarbly punishable by instant firing squad, and creativity instead is expressed in bludgeoning rage and violent stop-start time sig changes delivered with ruthless military precision.Its music remade as extreme sport..Punishing,technically demanding,requiring intense life or death concentration and would probarbly make your eyes bleed if you were exposed to it at high volume for a reasonable time.I'm sure its as addictive as crack for the few who love it and would doubtless make the whole history of human music seem unbearably tame and tepid by comparison ....I wouldn't pretend to appreciate the aesthetic here,but have a respect for its outsider quality and the fact there's a f*ck of alot to (rightfully) hate in this world if you set your mind to it.. ........................Steve Ison added to station 4/1/2008 10:21:25 PM

Transcendence
Bat Lenny - Transcendence ... One movement of a larger work (their Shawdowland Suite), fresh psychedelia from St. Paul, MN. This is one aspect of indie that artists other than electronic have not taken advantage of. Not having to tailor our work to label formuli, more of us could be working on larger concepts. These guys are unafraid to use the freedom and independence (yes, that's where Indie comes from) of the small studio with no clock on the wall to create something mural sized... and succeeded. ............Reviewed by LARS MARS added to station 6/16/2008 5:03:03 PM

The Sky's The Limit
The Sky's The Limit ... Steve April Real nice tune ... a bit Dylanesque, a bit Donovanish, a lot Steve April ... Simplistically simple arrangement that is a superbly charming background for the upbeat lyrics ... I like the way the vocal is stretched and teeters on the brink of "being in the half key" stretching out and bringing home the point that "The Sky's The Limit" ... and I like any song with a pom paa pa (not to mention bongo's) ... nice pick Hugo"...........REviewed By SAM, THE MAN WITH NO BAND added to station 7/8/2008 9:21:36 AM
