2  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: TWO brand new singles just released on: June 21, 2020, 07:18:08 PM
Double the fun!

First up is "Ramifications" (written by Dana Castillo). It's electronic like you'd expect from us, although this time it's a bit different...more smooth and hypnotic. It'll be the lead track from our upcoming album "Hidden Intentions".

https://fear2stop.bandcamp.com/album/ramifications

The other, "Faraway" is nothing like you've ever heard on a Fear 2 Stop album, with absolutely breathtakingly beautiful keyboard and piano from the insanely talented Dean Entwistle. It will follow Ramifications on the album, and is an absolute must listen...trust me

https://fear2stop.bandcamp.com/track/faraway



Stay tuned for news on "Hidden Intentions" coming soon....
Yeah, give it a listen!!! Hidden Intentions will be something big!!!!

7  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: New Website (and band member) on: May 22, 2020, 08:34:25 PM
Anytime!

Just released a new song... we’ll be putting out a new album shortly

http://fear2stop.bandcamp.com/track/animate
As i commented you before on your Animate thread, this song is so amazing and reminds me to a way-cooler My Solution.
I'm looking forward to listen to that amazing album!
8  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: Animate on: May 22, 2020, 08:30:34 PM
Here's our new single (from our upcoming album Dance of the Dead) Animate. We went for our usual blend of sci-fi horror influenced sounds, but this time our Brian Wilson influence is a bit more readily apparent.

Hope you guys enjoy it!

http://fear2stop.bandcamp.com/track/animate
Cool sound Billy! this track has an amazing chord progression and it kind of reminds me to My Solution, the organ and the synthy sounds are more than cool and the brief sleigh bells add a cool effect to the track, amazing job!!!
9  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: In Quarantine Vol. I by Dean Entwistle on: May 22, 2020, 08:26:49 PM
^ Awesome....will check it out later on today.

Also I just about finished the koto track I was working on Cool
new album: https://deanentwistle.bandcamp.com/album/sounds-of-quarantine!
Cool, i want to listen that cool track!
10  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: In Quarantine Vol. I by Dean Entwistle on: May 20, 2020, 07:42:08 PM
Dude this is INCREDIBLE....especially Cry of the Moon. I can definitely hear the Brian influence on regards to the chord progression. Absolutely beautiful. My wife and I are stunned listening right now
Thanks mate!! Yes, the Wilson-esque and Bacharach-esque influences are so dominant on that track, I will try to record a piano only album with that kind of feeling, thanks man!!!!

Btw, i have uploaded the final volume of "Kotos of Madness". Link: https://deanentwistle.bandcamp.com/album/kotos-of-madness-iii

Uploaded a new compilation of stuff from our early years when our sound was quite different. Definitely less polished and less produced.


http://fear2stop.bandcamp.com/album/fear-2-stop-the-early-years-vol-1-2002-2005
It's so cool man, I love Peppermint Twist (well that one is on another album/EP but it's so freaking awesome) and Arcade Blooze, You're into something good man, good work!


Fun fact...there were porn samples used in Arcade Blooze (you can tell from the hi hat sounds....which aren't actually hi hats but something else entirely lol); that was Raymond's idea!
LOL, that's an strange and pretty awesome piece of trivia, that song is so great man, nice job!!!!!


Thankya! We’d listened to 20/20 earlier in the day and I think All I Want To Do influenced us LOL
Oh yeah, the Denny Wilson b*nging someone tag

LOL that’s the one !
hahahahah, thanks for your like on my FB page, now I'm following your page!

😎  Oh and check your PMs... 😉

Gotta help our fellow artists ... that’s the way I look at it! That’s the one thing I do like about music now; have earned very little money from it but I can still record whenever I want. Also there’s also more of a community type vibe now which is sweet
I've replied your message, thanks for your support, mate!

That means a lot to me. We’ve been doing this since 2001 (back when it was myself, my wife, and our friend Raymond) and (I’m dead serious) have recorded around 1000 songs (not a typo) over the years. We started to have some success but then Dana and I had Jaymie, and then Raymond’s wife passed, then my strokes... so we’re just now at the point of going full throttle again.  We don’t have any qualms about being successful in the commercial sense but that means little right now (although if we get a few buys I certainly won’t complain). Jaymie said she’s mostly interested in “making works of art “.

Works for me
Wow, you've been doing this for 19 years? that's so cool, you need to do something for your 20th anniversary!!!.
I have recorded a lot of songs too, that's why i believe that you've recorded a lot of tunes; so sad to hear about your friend's wife Sad.
I wish the best of the lucks to all of you! Good, good luck mate!!


Thanks Dean! We are planning something for our 20th but haven't worked out exactly what just yet.

Do you have a Bandcamp page too? If so I'd like to check it out Cool
Awesome! I hope that something goes more than amazing for you and your band!

https://deanentwistle.bandcamp.com - this is my Bandcamp, some of my sound is influenced by Clairo (She's my main inspiration in a lot of aspects), The Beach Boys, Queen, Bowie and Gershwin, in fact, I've released a new album with faux kotos, it's now on Bandcamp


Clairo? She’s one of favorites out of anybody from the past 20 years (especially Bags)

Gonna check out your work later on tonight after I’m done working on a track. You have a great taste in music for sure. Looking forward to it!

I went ahead and tweeted a link to your page on my Twitter as well


Oh and I did end up using a koto sample on a track I’m working on after all 😎
Btw, what kind of koto are you using?

Yes, She's my biggest influence right now and well, my crush hahahahaha, I love her stuff on Bandcamp & Soundcloud and her Immunity album (IIRC, we talked briefly about her a month ago in a topic about quarantine).

I've never heard of Aphex Twin, I'll give it a listen.

Dean, this is the one you want: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXd0QcTR5_M


It sounds so great! I will try to replicate that kind of feeling for the follow-up EP

Looking forward to that. Wink
Done!

Hey friends!

It's been a while but I thought I would post I have a new cover of "In My Room" up:
https://youtu.be/WOPjNVuswxA

In this crazy quarantime I figured it would be silly if I didn't cover this gorgeous song, and way too appropriate that I recorded it back in my childhood room where I first discovered the BB's and all their beautiful songs <3 laugh
Hope you are all taking care, staying healthy and taking this time to dive deeper into some great music! I will likely be releasing some new music of my own soon too Smiley

Much Love!
WOW, you did an amazing job on this one, the harmonies are so beautiful and soothing, nice job Kayla and stay safe!

Here's our latest from our upcoming album (details to come...). This is a great example of where our sound is going towards. Even though the album is more of suite type of deal, this works as a good stand-alone.

FYI the crackling sound is intentional as we were going for the distorted organ sound from Country Air on Wild Honey


http://fear2stop.bandcamp.com/track/area-420
it sounds so great! the synth drone sounds so great and the crackling organ sound you mentioned before adds a cool atmosphere to track, amazing sound and very good job!!!

Thanks Dean...that means a lot. Being able to with my wife, my best friend, and my daughter is a blessing! Especially the kiddo... started off with me teaching Jaymie how to mix, and how it works as far as producing. She’s close to surpassing me if she hasn’t already! And she’s not yet 13 ! So I want this to be successful but more so for her, as I know she will eventually do her own thing.

She started writing after we saw Brian live in 2017. When I had my most recent stroke for a long time I couldn’t write anymore, or at least finish anything. She ended up helping me get back to where I was . I couldn’t have done it without her. And she’s so young!

Needless to say, I’m very proud

Here’s an example of her writing (I did the bridge)

http://fear2stop.bandcamp.com/track/mean-girls-2020-remaster
Wow, that song is a cool-cool track, I love the whole synthy-vibe coming from this track and the percussion adds a way cooler flavor to it.
I've been listening to The Next Level and I can tell you that your style (well, the style of your band) is something special and unique, good work, mate!!!!!!
