I can't get enough Hazlewood.

Generally don't want to listen to my stuff or my bands after the long process of recording and editing. But as a time capsule of my life, they can be incredible to go back to once in a while. Sometimes cringe though.

I hang my own art in my house. It feels fancy. Can't be bothered trying to sell it or make more anymore. Just not enough time in the day.

I make music alone now because I'm an asshole to work with artistically... I may start something new with other folks and some of my friends are pushing me to do it. Mostly I make it to get it out of me. I enjoy playing it but rarely want to listen to out outside of actually playing it. I find that I'm sick of it and overly critical when I listen to recordings... I'll tolerate it when playing it for someone else to critique but that's about it.

I don't think people bumping their own shit is arrogant... it's just superfluous to me

I listen to my own stuff to the point where I hate it and I think it sucks completely. Then I make more music.

A mild increase in self-loathing and the ability to be even more critical of your own work while still retaining the belief that it's worth doing and relevant.

Same.

I'd listen to my own music if I ever bothered recording it.
Even then, it usually sounds awful.

If I had a massive recording studio and enough money to commission top mastering guys, plus the will to make some actual songs, I'd listen to my music all day. :snax:

I've been saving to have my next album mastered professionally by someone whose work I really love, and it makes me a lot more anxious about the whole recording process and listening to my own music. When I'm in control of every single thing and don't really give it to anyone for feedback until I release it, there's a comfort zone, but when it goes out to someone else with a much better ear than mine, it's a whole new world of conflicting emotions. It makes it feel more valuable (probably just literally, in the very obvious sense) and as if I care about it more, which makes me more anxious about listening back to things because of how critical I now have to be.

Mastering is scary and kinda cool, and I hope, in the end, if nothing else makes it easier to listen to my own music, after all the main person I'm making it for is me.

This is it.

D.o.S. wrote:It's a bit of a false dichotomy, because like someone said earlier being humble about what you do is a good thing -- no one likes hubris, after all - but the logical endpoint of "I don't listen to my own music" begs the question "well then why should anyone?"


I'm probably the most humble person I know. I feel good about smelling my own butthole.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.

King Krule is another one with a great deep voice. He's also such an awesome little weirdo... I can't believe he's 23.

I need to just stop singing and find someone with a voice like that to sing my jams :thumb:
