I swear that song sounds like something Billy would write.

It sounds like something old Billy might write.

I do wonder if he's involved behind the scenes.

SP should be: New Singer (maybe a chick.. D'arcy?), Jimmy, James, and Jeff.

I could go the rest of my life never hearing BWBW again and that'd be quite alright

The problem is that Billy's vocals have become intolerable. They used to be very emotive and had a lot of range even though they were unconventional but now they're very flat and one dimensional. He's become a 1 trick pony vocally, and he even struggles with that.

Take a song like Quasar, it could potentially sound pretty "edgy" and rocking but he croaks away these corny lyrics with terrible sounding vocals.

I'm honestly surprised he doesn't get more shit for how bad he sounds now. I can't think of many rock stars who've had longevity that just completely changed their singing style and had any success with it.

This would be a good idea, but keep Billy on for lead guitar. Maybe if he doesn't have to worry about singing he can create something cool on guitar for the first time in ages

it's good, mastering's pretty unflattering though. had to check my playback settings to make sure i hadn't somehow put "loudness equalization" on by accident. dream pop doesn't need to be constantly blaring at any volume

all & all tho i'd say this can comfortably join JCC in the "SP sideprojects that are notably better than recent SP releases" club

I gotta say that I've enjoyed this EP more than most of the music Billy has released post original line up. This kinda proves Jeff is not the problem with SP. He pulls off the dreamy/atmospheric guitars as well as leads. If only this waa brought more into SP.

I also wrote Night Dreamer's FB page suggesting they make a Bandcamp page. Mindy, the singer, actually wrote me back saying she loves Bandcamp and that they will definitely look into it.

It appears there is some sort of 10-year "rite of passage" w/ Corgan which Myke & Nickole did not cross (hence their unceremonious demises) but our boy Jeffrey has done with flying i repeat flying colors congrats Jeff!

You guys are actually listening to this? One watch of that corny Youtube video was more than enough for my listening pleasure
