Hey guys, we just played our first show a few weeks ago, and we would really like some feedback on the music. If you like it, give us a like on Facebook, makes us look way better to promoters! Thank you!

Welcome to DMU. Expect and embrace the wave of criticism that will come.

Your songs show promise in their live form, and I believe studio time will allow their strengths (which are primarily in your ability to create rhythmic texture and atmosphere/ambience) to shine. I believe your interests would be best served by working on song structure - increasing your ability to use dynamics, transitions, etc. to create your effect of choice will allow you to write more ambitious and memorable songs. It's an ongoing process, which I know firsthand from my own musical endeavors, but if you keep at it, your music will benefit. I suppose it boils down to forming a musical voice - the more you know what you want to bring to your works, the easier it is to implement.

With that advice in mind, I do want to see continued work from your band; developing ever better material will, beyond being an end in its own right, bring you steady income if you keep applying yourself, and I believe you've reached a good point from which to apply yourself further (bizarre phrasing aside).
