Hey Wieners. If you're bored and want to check out something different, I'd love to get some feedback and non-biased opinions on the band I'm in, The Banana Convention. I don't mean this to be a blatant plug of the band or the website, because I'm honestly interested in other people's thoughts about what we're doing. I also think a lot of Wieners will actually "get" what we're doing and will get a kick out of it. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Having heard little bits of it, my first reaction as an amateur producer would be bring the bass up in the mix, especially considering what the drummer's playing.

Maybe it was just the recording quality, but it just didn't sound brought up enough. But considering the stuff that you're doing, rhythm section overkill is your friend.

IMO, of course.

Being amateur producers ourselves, we're just learning the recording process and playing around with a few things, so your input is appreciated. Also, most the recordings on the website are live. We do have an 8 track demo EP recorded and the recordings on that are much better than those on the site.

But I appreciate you checking out the site and your feedback. Thanks!

As someone who has listened to more indy crap (not comparing this to crap, but stating a fact) than I care to admit ---

Please, please - don't feel that more bass is always better.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

I'm not saying it should be so loud that it breaks windows, but if the level is on 3 right now, it should be on 4. Just to enhace the rhythm section slightly, which IMO was the strongest part of the tracks I heard.

I had much the same reaction. I liked it on first listen, but wasn't blown away (except, perhaps, by "Raincoat.") It does continue to grow on me, though.
