Broadjam Artist: Uncle Spider & The Electric Dirt Clods
Song: A Whiskey In The Morning / Rock

Reviewer: Antho

Positive Comments: Very cool sounding guitar idea – ripe for a lyricist/singer to run with. The melodies lend themselves to a great song in the making

Constructive Comments: I’d like to hear the part up until 0:32 played on a nylon string acoustic, and the rest of the song on a guitar with a little bit of midrange drive, like through a Vox.

Positive Comments: It’s the smooth operator. Sounds silky. Good stuff here. This is GROWN folk music. I’m really diggin’ the vibe. Keep em comin’. Salute!

Beyond This Life by Signal 30

Reviewer: Rin Vinson

Positive Comments: The simple piano lulled me in quickly. Even though there are no lyrics I feel like there is a hook in the song…a musical hook and I think the musical hook is strong. The tempo is nice and the composition is nice. I would say there is a majestic sound overall. This piece would lend itself to many visual situations and should do fairly well for you. The recording is decent quality, the mix is very good, and the master sounds nice and full. Nice job.

Constructive Comments: I would say that although I do like the piece, I think that the “ah” vocals and the strings have, possibly, too much of a computer driven sound to them. The piano sounds nice and natural to my ears. I think some better sounding vocal and string patches would help this song immensely because it is a very well composed song. Thanks again for sharing and good luck.

Rewind (Instrumental) by CaiNo

Reviewer: Rin Vinson

Positive Comments: This tune builds so well! Electric piano intro grabbed me right away. The HH and congas with a ton of verb got the groove chugging, and then some nice bass playing gave some support. Extremely cool, moody piece of music here. Originality scores are high on this piece. Visually I could see this piece doing well in many areas. The recording is organic and sounds nice and real. The mix is perfect and the master sounds like a professional job. I really enjoyed the song. Thanks for sharing.

Constructive Comments: The only and I mean ONLY thing I would say about this song to critique it is that the strings at the end might not need to be there. Other than that, I loved it and I would like to hear more. Very enjoyable. The groove is happening.

Positive Comments: Great guitar tone. Tasty and sparse, I like that.

Constructive Comments: It’s very well done, don’t have much. But, just thinking maybe a cold stop, or two, would add a nice contrast.

The Usual Victim by HarryBudini

HarryBudini

Broadjam Artist: HarryBudini
Song: The Usual Victim

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Groovy psychedelic vibe that reminds me of Lennon, Bowie, and more currently, Of Montreal. Of course it’s Harry. I think you’re using your voice perfectly in this one. Cool sitar touches and swirling feel. I really like at 2:20 where you starting hitting one One with sitar splash–this gives it a Funk that really works.

Constructive Comments: That bridge comes in really late–it should be a good bit sooner. The bass & drums are kind of fluttery and don’t really settle into a smooth rhythm, which detracts from the song. I think they’d be so much better if more simple and grooving on the beat. The words are a bit hard to understand at times.

Waiting by Richard Walker

Richard Walker

Broadjam Artist: Richard Walker
Song: Waiting

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: Really nice baritone vocals that remind me of Ron Sexsmith, as does the song. Maybe Rufus Wainwright a bit too. Good production, playing, and arrangement. You’ve borrowed The Beatles’ “Listen” in the progression which will make it familiar but not so close that it’s a copy.

Constructive Comments: The bass is overpowering with a loud low end. It needs to be backed down and thinned out a bit.
