who loves you baby

AMBER ([personal profile] amber) is!

Born in Sydney, Australia, she was given a cassette tape of OK Computer for her tenth birthday, the start of a life-long love affair with Thom "lazy-eyed" Yorke, Radiohead, and the '90s Brit-alt scene. While she loves almost all music with the passion of a thousand suns, her favourites tend to be artists with a unique sound within their genre. There is also a special place in her heart for a capella groups, modern classical, covers, show tunes, and any song she can use to win cash at pub karaoke.

One day she plans to be President of the Galaxy.

NEO ([personal profile] baconface) is young and cool and a resident of America's "deep south". She scraps a bit and yells sometimes but is generally the affable type. She is neurotic at the best of times, but this means all her posts will be cleanly formatted and easy to navigate. An extrovert who masquerades consciously and successfully as an introvert, Neo spends her spare time obsessing over the prospect of vaccinated time travel and criticizing Pitchfork's prosaic reviews while writing verbose ones of her own that she has to date never shared with anyone . . . until now. Actually, it's still pretty unlikely her opinions will make it too far past her Twitter feed. But that's why this site is called Dreamwidth. Because it lets you all dream. Widely.

She likes plinky and whimsical sounds, ska, kick drum abuse, and Jimi Hendrix. She disliked the movie Avatar primarily because of how it portrayed the United States Marine Corps. She is also ninety-nine percent real bacon. The remaining percent is Gentleman Jack.

RY ([personal profile] crescendo) has been a musician pretty much from birth, and rumour has it that she's been singing longer than she's been speaking. Twenty-three and currently residing in sunny Seattle, Washington, she's going to be famous some day, just you wait and see. May or may not intend to inflict original recordings and her own covers on you poor people from time to time. She, like Neo, has a whole lot of opinions that are probably better expressed in 140 characters or less.
Likes: Really good sandwiches, harmless trolling, tattoos, the word "delightful", mash-ups, 80s/90s pop, singing and dancing to Disney music, funky covers, melodic indie pop, shoegaze/post-rock that isn't grating, Nate Ruess, and fucking your mother.
Dislikes: Owl City, being judged for still wholeheartedly enjoying the Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls, and Amber's lies and slander!!

THIS POST MAY ALSO BE USED TO INTRODUCE YOURSELVES, particularly if you intend to contribute heavily to member-upload posts or pick up a lot of tunes. Tell us about you and your musical tastes! It can only help the quality of our uploads. It can only help our personal tastes. It can only broaden horizons.

hi guys!! I'm Caitlin, I've known [personal profile] amber for some years now and that's how I got here. I can't make any promises as to how much I'll contribute to member uploads, but I do have a few bands up my sleeve that I'd like to share! but I'm always up for any opportunity to grab new music. I'm twenty, I'm in California, I study psychology and work in a boring office and perform improv comedy weekly, and that pretty much sums up me!!

my taste in music is not incredibly unique. I am most fond of bands with singers who don't really sound like they're the... most talented at singing. like, their voices are awesome to listen to but maybe technically they aren't so skilled? Andrew Jackson Jihad is a good example of this for me. I love anything with piano, and more often than not like acoustic/stripped down versions of songs the most. my favorite band since I was old enough to have a favorite band is They Might be Giants, take it or leave it, and has fostered a lifelong love of happy-sounding songs with not-so-happy lyrics.

ah, let's see, what else. I also enjoy non-vocal music in the vein of God is an Astronaut, Explosions in the Sky, Ratatat etc. I unabashedly love musicals. I've got a major hard on for bands with both female and male vocalists (The Hush Sound, The New Pornographers, Stars). fkjds let's be really honest: I pretty much like everything. and not in the way where people go "I like everything... EXCEPT RAP AND COUNTRY." I like rap and (some) country. I even like a couple Owl City songs here and there. I have the entire Pokemon soundtrack in my iTunes. ~*~2 b a master~*~

the only thing I'd say I don't like is any song where I can't fucking understand the singer. that will turn me off immediately. learn to enunciate, god damn it :')

ANYWAY THAT'S IT, wow I wrote you guys a book. I'm really stoked for this!! :Db

I am honest if nothing else.
