Yeah, I'd figured these tracks were all going to be on the album, since the word "demo" was added onto their links on Bandcamp, YouTube, etc. Except, "demo" was also added onto Small Hands, Small Heart, but I think that one is a little less personal than these other ones, so not surprised it didn't make the cut (same with In Harm's Way).

I hope there's very little uke on the album - preferably not at all, since TTAT and BOTI are so much better on piano. That said, I hope it's not all just piano & vocals, as that will get a bit monotonous. I must say I'm a little disappointed there's almost no new material, but oh well. Intrigued by "All The Things Pts 1 & 2 - wth is that gonna be? Haha

Still really excited for this. Any ideas on its title yet? Probably not...

no idea about the title.

Amanda has social media-ed the last few days that at least two artists
have been in the studio to add special sound effects.

other than that, it seems its mostly piano & vocals.
THOUGH being Amanda, there could be a few surprises!

great post!

the tracklist from Patreon is unlikely to leak from here.

sadly, its unlikely you'll get a lot of replies here.

the reason for both, is that new accounts can't
be created right now on this forum.
team AFP is aware, but has other priorities.

Starting a topic on here to discuss the new solo album!  Patreon's Community section doesn't seem to get a lot of activity/ discussion happening with these things, or the posts/comments just get lost easily in mass of content.  Facebook just feels like an echo chamber...

I guess I was prompted to make this topic after Amanda posted on Patreon a photo of the list of the songs she's recording in the studio now.  It took me right back to WKAP era and all the hype/excitement that happened on the forum when Amanda was in the studio, all the photos, short video clips etc.  It got me excited about the new album and this forum's musings. (Hopefully, there will be more activity on here now, leading up to the new album)

So I wanted to start us off by talking about the recent tracklist.
Thoughts on the songs shes recording? re-recording? covering? Potential running order? Predictions?

I'm not sure if I can post it because it's for Patreons? Presumably, most ShadowBox members are patreons?  Let me know, and I can remove it!



Bigger On The Inside
Mother’s Confession
The Things About Things
Drowning In The Sound
Death Thing
Voicemail For Jill
Machette
The Ride
Look Mummy (No Hands cover?)
All The Things 1
All The Things 2
Judy Blume
Brick (Ben Folds Cover)
I Want You ( But I Don't Need You, Momus Cover?)

I'm guessing that Brick, I Want You and Look Mummy will be bonus covers, given their content and how they fit well into the current set lists of Amanda's recent gigs.  I also think that Look Mummy No Hands, sound similar to The Ride and will maybe drag the album down a bit.  I am glad these songs are getting recorded though and are finding a home to belong to.  I also remember Amanda saying this album would have 10 songs? That would dismiss the 3 covers, and if you count All The Things pt1, pt2 as one song? is it a song?

I am also curious with the pace of the album given its mostly ballads (long ones too).  I have been looking at the list for a while and haven't been able to predict a running track order, maybe The Ride being the closing track...

I just realised I've been a fan of the dolls/Amanda for 12 years now...  I have seen Amanda numerous times (last week in Edinburgh actually) but this will be my first dolls gig.  I can't remember when I was this excited about a gig since I was a teenager!?  I am still in disbelief that this is happening.

The dolls were THAT important band for me when I was "discovering myself" in high school.  I was such a fangirl.  (i guess I still am?)  The dolls have always been in a special place in my heart now for over a decade.  It's nice to revisit the forum and remind myself of the impact the dolls have had on my life and in bringing this forum/community together.

I'll be there on the 31st, what songs are we hoping to hear?  I would really love to hear Glass Slipper.  It's an added bonus these gigs are over the Halloween period, I'm excited to see what they make of that...  the 18th year anniversary? wow.
glass slipper would be amaaazing... or bank of boston beauty queen... but i honestly doubt they will play them :-(
i personally hope they'll include some no virginia songs but i try to keep my expectations low^^
i always hope for Kalendra(sp?).
i've only heard it live once.

a fan since The Onion Cellar, Dec 2006,
.though I don't remember Kaledrina being played there.
hmmm you don't mean Kaledrina?

yes, Kaledrina is the song I always hope for.
i couldn't remember how to spell it.

2005 recording:

Lyrics (at least one version):

yes, I've heard this recording before... great song!! I didn't know it was part of the onion cellar...

yes, great song.
i've always wondered why Kaledrina didn't make an album/EP,
& is played so seldom.

i don't remember Kaledrina being played at The Onion Cellar.
i've tried to clairify this by editing above,

None. I'm just learning not to have plans, expectations and to take things as they come.
sounds almost Zen Buddhist!  ; - }
It is also freaking difficult. :)

This forum is like old school letters - you send it and wait for weeks for the reply. It is very Jane Austen-y. :D
haha, that's the perfect way to look at it!

agreed!  (though its not difficult,
 I just have to read a few posts back to get the context back.)

i still enjoy the postings here, even at the slow pace!
