So Calli along with holoMyth and holoEN is going two years, and this cover of a track from Calli’s first major-label EP, SHINIGAMI NOTE, is pretty much my commemorative upload for it. And yes, I decided to use the presence of the lyric “‘Play the role of ‘bad girl”” as a way for my take on this to be sassier on top of manlier, because hey, that is how I look at Calli at the very least: a crudely badass woman I’d like to spend my time fancily bullying into further improvement. Of course, it’s fine if she doesn’t notice my stuff. I’d even call it a miracle, since she seems to have a tendency to fixate on worthless feedback, which I think my feedback usually is, even and especially with how I tend to write like a wannabe reviewer, which is a double whammy because I heard that reviewers are supposed to be snobs.
And speaking of snobbery, yes, I did do some censoring on my cover here. I’d also like to say that I am a firm believer in sounding more insulting without using textbook curses. Still, this song is my favorite off the EP, which, along with “MERA MERA” being my second favorite, definitely is also saying something about how I perceive the quality of the whole thing (Hint: It also has me down bad at best). Not like having alfonsomusic remake the groovy instrumental, myself work these intricate vocals, and Shig do the effect-heavy audio engineering weren’t a fun challenge to me, though. I mean, what is an ordinary Tobby day without him plotting to outdo the Grim Reaper’s First Apprentice? And I like to think that I’m styling on her with my finer vocal control and wider emotional range. She still has me beat at emotional power and audio engineering quality, though.
Now, before I go TMI some more, here’s a link to this cover’s mp3. Also, again, I’d love some honest constructive feedback from you folks. You might find yourself with more range than you think here, too.
