Hi everybody. I wanna tell you guys about the band I'm in because we want to seriously promote it....the band is called Seneca Falls..It's me and two other girls...I play the drums while my other two friends play the guitar and the piano...you can hear our songs at:

http://www.purevolume.com/senecafalls

and

http://www.soundclick.com/bands/0/senecafalls.htm
I'd prefer if you download the songs from here because we want to get higher on the charts there. You can also find a bio on each of the band members. I have a lot of quotes from Freddie Mercury on there..thanks!

You can see our website at:
http://www.angelfire.com/band2/senecafalls/

Our songs aren't completed yet because we haven't yet put the drums in..I have an electronic Roland drumset, so it's been difficult drying to record with it because of editing and other stuff..but the full versions will be out soon with me playing the drums...I sound really good on the drums which you will find out later..but for now you can hear the vocals and guitar which sound cool..the lyrics are really meaningful and I hope you guys enjoy it and please give me some feedback on what you think. I would really appreciate it if you told your friends about the band also. Thanks!!!

Was the singer drunk at recording??


I think a little more work might be needed there! Maybe an image change too?? It sounds pretty bad. Fair play to you for giving it a go, but I think its pretty awful, sorry.

Good luck anyway.


And dont let Simon Cowell hear it!

I don't know, the other band member wrote it, I didn't.

my opinion:

good:
1. for a band with the influences you have you seeemd to stay away from some big "scene-cliches" which really annoy me. seneca falls, as well as most of the song titles with the exception of "murdered murderer" all seemed pretty legit in today's "let's be artsy, violent, and write poetry" uprising of new high school bands copying other much better bands.

2. along with lyrics seemed honest and not what I call "scene-fraud", but I couldn't understand them without reading them

3. you got a band together and played music, with people willing to make music, great, more than I ever did, (bass players don't seem to be the type to get the band actually together)


needs work:

1. jumped the gun on posting mp3s? maybe should waited until you had some unmastered songs from the EP, you can't really tell what these songs are going to sound like even with more instrumentation

2. singer...I know you already addressed that but still, post an ad in the paper or something, message boards work too

3. bass player?

anyways, keep it up I'd like to hear what it sounds like with more instruments and production, try promoting again when you have some proper recordings! The scene needs some more girl bands that don't suck (there's a few exceptions but not many, most the good ones are only girl-fronted not all girl)

rant:
just remember don't try to sound like anything, sound like something, but don't try to copy someone else, thats the biggest gripe I have about the emo/punk/hardcore scene is that every new band is "for fans of thursday, taking back sunday, and thrice!" and it really gets old, Sure I love those bands, but that doesn't mean I'm gonna like 20 other bands that sound like them...

well anyway...good luck! let me know when you have new stuff up

Thanks VGB..that was a very constructive critique of the band..I really appreciate it...I'll be sure to keep you updated...I'm sending the completed recording of two songs to my friend now so she can post them..thanks so much...I agree we shouldn't have put up the recording without completeing them yet but, my friend just felt like give people a taste of things..anyway, thanks again..I'll try to find a singer..I'm also forcing another friend to learn bass so she can join, lol....
