This new single from The Microdance which Nicole sung on is much better. https://soundcloud.com/themicrodance...end-radio-edit

Default Nicole With The Microdance.

Top two songs (Smithereens & Making Plans for the End) on the Microdance's Soundcloud feature Nicole on vocals - as does the whole of the upcoming album.

https://soundcloud.com/themicrodance

This is my band and I'm quite prepared for the barrage of caustic criticism - but it's Pumpkins related; so I'm posting. Obviously, I hold a faint hope that some of you will enjoy it.

I will also add that Nicole is a consummate pro, a wonderful person and an absolute pleasure to work with.

I won't be answering any questions about her though!

The Microdance made that record. It'll be released in the autumn - 70 minutes of musically and emotionally deep music with numerous layers and sonic textures - power and beauty in equal measure; no let up in quality, all 'a pile' songs.

Default The Microdance 'New Waves of Hope' ft Nicole Fiorentino.

Last year my band, The Microdance flew to LA to record our debut album 'New Waves of Hope'.

Nicole Fiorentino sings BGVs on it. For those of you who are interested, she is an amazing professional, wonderful to work with and a truly beautiful person.

I'm definitely expecting the usual Netphoria scorn; but I thought it may have a little added interest here due to the personnel!

Here's the stream: https://soundcloud.com/themicrodance...-waves-of-hope

Yeah, we killed the crowdfunding promo when the record got funded - so that was a redundant post SJ. Even if we hadn't, how would that correlate to the quality of the music, you fucking idiot?

Having my intelligence questioned by you is almost as ironic as you suggesting that I should grow up; because you are without question the most moronic person I have ever dealt with. In fact, I've received several PMs from people letting me know that you're a professional cunt!

I also think you need to get laid more - a good thing for that is to crank the Microdance up to full volume in the bedroom.

Fuzzy - I actually sang (or tried) like that since way before I heard Deftones so there's no conscious mimicry going on.

Jesus wept, can someone delete this thread please?!

There were six; all of which were extremely contemptuous and sullying of your character and four of which were very complimentary towards The Microdance. Can't be bothered to paste them here though - responding to your hateful rants is just above the parapet but copying and pasting a load of messages is way beneath my level of interest.

Pretty much all of it is here, save 10 or so songs that were put out exclusively by our label.

WWW.THEMICRODANCE.BANDCAMP.COM

New Waves of Hope is the album she sang on.

The two albums are on Spotify but not all the releases prior to them... And I detest Spotify!

Thanks for your interest

The new The Microdance album blows them all out of the water.

Have you been drinking?

Perhaps you should listen to Our Love Noire by the Microdance instead.

What's correct is that it's not as good as The Microdance's latest album, or, in fact, any of their releases.

What's incorrect is the spelling: it's Our Love Noire. The implication being that the blackness of the love is a female thing.

Thank you though, greatly appreciated.

If that is genuine, I would like to genuinely say thank you.

It's difficult to get a positive reaction for your band's music here, especially if you're being a dick and trying to get a rise out of people by saying it's better than anything that's brought up. Which I do not believe!

Although, sometimes a strategy like that is worth the effort considering we've had great reviews and sold literally 11 copies of an album that was released last July. I won't even go into Spotify and how bad the royalties are, I'll just say they're about 10% of the figures bandied about by both Spotify and people that haven't released on that platform!

Incubator - check your emails bruvs; everyone who buys 'Our Love Noire' gets a copy of my side project's EP.

It's probably just a touch more dreadful than The Microdance!

Yeah, but Incubator says that The Microdance's two albums are better than the new Mogwai and we've sold 20 copies in six months.

This is clearly an illogical path, my furry friends.

Frankie Siragusa who co-produced The Microdance's 'New Waves of Hope'.

Not saying that because it's my band, saying it because I've worked with him and he brings the songs up to the next level.

Such as finishing the song on a soft chord and suggesting doubling it with piano strings recorded with a condensor mic or hitting the kick gently with a hockey stick with cloth wrapped around it for the mellow outro of a song.

No pointing at the radio and shaking his head.

Obciously Flood too - he helped so may artists push the boundaries of their sounds to create career defining albums.

The only two alt rock bands I know of putting decent alt rock albums out are The Joy Formidable and The Microdance. There are probably dozens of others but everyone is sharing Loveless and SD like it's new fucking music. With the TMD selling 30 copies of our albums and two relatively shitty bands, Nothing and Whirr getting all the plaudits, there's not much hope.

Yes, TMD is my band but I have first had experience of this, so it's pertinent to me. The 30 people who've bought our latest album have shared that shit and cited Pearl Jam, Deftones and SP as bands who our latest album is infinitely superior to theirs, but no one sees that because they're not interested.

The music industry is the opposite of inspiration for independent bands and very soon there'll be non left.

Any alternative band that put their debut album out post 2007 or isn't a generic shoegaze band with all the right pedals but no songs is fucked.

People are buying £60 re-releases of a 1991 Slowdive album but not theirs.
