THERE WILL BE NO INTERMISSION. New Amanda Solo album!

(1/4) > >>

Merk:
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...

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.

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!
