Our good friend Zak came on tour with us and Old Gray and May, and documented the whole tour. He made this video from footage he got from our shows in Chicago and Pittsburgh and us generally being drunken idiots. We like it a lot.
My forever inner 14-year old punk self will forever be stoked about this.
Dylan from I Kill Giants put together this really fucked version of Gig Life.
If you have not listened to I Kill Giants, please check them out. We all adore them, they are fantastic musicians and have been writing mind blowing songs. I think i listened to collector 10 times in a row while taking the Orange Train back to Boston last week.
Oh my god I just got to the second chorus and it’s a nightmare
This is really fucking sloppy, wow. Like, it’s obvious the dude tried to take the sharps out of the sound, but it’s also obvious he failed to remove the original sound completely, so of course it’s going to sound fucked up: you have a bunch of minor seconds creeping out, and those are dissonant as fuck. I would like to hear a properly transcribed version of this song, though. It’d be cool to hear the side-by-side difference between major and minor keys with an actual, put-together example.
HAHAHAH oh my god what a fucking little shit. “You’re not supposed to have minor seconds because that’s way too dissonant jazz jazz jazz.”
I never said it was a bad thing, did I? I never even implied that you couldn’t have dissonances—fucking Bach had dissonances, and he’s about as orthodox as you can get with harmony. I simply explained why everyone is like “oh my god this is a nightmare”. Because that’s kind of what dissonance tends to do. No need to be a cunt about it just because you have poor reading comprehension, bud.
(and if it were properly transcribed, it wouldn’t have those anyway, because the original song doesn’t, so far as I recall)
Yo, I did this with an mp3 of the song and Melodyne. Don’t take it so seriously.
