Demo of the first track from a dumbass pop concept album I'm working on.

A bit more 'techno-y' than I'm used to from you, frenetic, but that seems to be the point and it's still pretty good. Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to the new album.

FWIW, I normally don't dig this style of music but I found myself getting into this. Like the attitude on the vocals.

I like this one a lot. Drums (loop?) is really chanky and nice. The instro stuff after the chorus is surprising and cool. Oh, also surprising is the note you go to on the word "home" -- unusual choice -- I really like that.

This is super cool, has a good groove, and a nice melody. I really dig it.

And I know it's a demo, but I am going to pick a really (really) small nit: I don't know if you're just flying the chorus in at the end and cutting too close or if it's an over-aggressive gate, but the sharp cutoff after "life" during the outro (at 3:05, for example) is distracting enough that I noticed it the first time through.

When I saw the words "dumbass" and "pop" in the description, this is not at all what I expected to hear. It may be pop, but I don't think it qualifies as dumbass — it's much too smart. Nice song.

Really well done. Sounds like Beck remixed by Simian Mobile Disco.

This one is really neat.

However, I burned it to CD to listen in the car, and the bass ended up being pretty heavy, to the point that I couldn't make out the words unless I turned it up really loud (I'm also dealing with road noise, of course), and by then the bass on my eardrums was kind of painful. But maybe that's just my speakers, and I still really like the groove.

This is awesome, I love the big bottom sound and the edge on the keyboard cuts through it perfectly.
