metaphors by sexymustache is a brilliant piece. It is written so very well, and I would love to see videos com from this text.
Everything Is On Fire [Robo Remix] is another brilliant remade piece by RJ. I love it so much that I thought I shoudl tell everyone else to listen to it! You are brilliant with music, my friend!
what if? by tonguecutsparrow is another worthwhile listen. I love that the what if collab is being remixed into more than text records! Great job! Let's keep those remixes coming!
Brutal Waltz: The Smoke is an image that absolutely blows me away. It is very well rendered and I would love to see what remixes people come up with based on this image.
fighting fears is an image that I absolutely love. It isn't complicated by any means, but it says so much to something that every single one of us can relate to: fear.
Words We're Waling (REC Room) is an awesome thing given to us by the bossman, Joe. I love this little drunken ditty so much, and I am very excited to see where the remixing process takes us with this!
Words hurt is a very powerful video that speaks to the dangerous power of words. I reccommend that everyone watches this and ponders upon its message.
joe sketch remix is a wonderful image that I think fits perfectly into what Marke and Joe are looking for in the vinyl cover. It's black and white with 60's and grunge feeling to it. It's perfect!
there are things i don’t jive with, see, beats that don’t match the rhythms i move to, i’m not some cool cat, i hate cats and i hate being cold but when things get heated i boi...
everything is on fire all the time.
This is a remix of count's fab original sketch. Done in gig poster style inspired by the work of Bob Masse. EDIT: Wow! Thank you all for the feedback. I'm honoured!
Just another doodle for Haus_of_Glitch's Brutal Waltz. I kind of like the idea of the Smoke as this sinuous movement insinuating itself into the industrial rhythms of the music. There's something creepy about that contrast. I see each pair of Proms wreathed with a Smoke so that what starts at first as a duet actually becomes a trio. In the end, only the Smoke are left.

When I was done writing these words, (finished it on my birthday) it seemed to me like a sort of tavern sing-along. So here's the bottom layer. Now I'd love to hear what y'all add to it.
Sing along with the chorus! Or sing along with any part of it you see fit. Play along on another guitar. Acoustic, electric, the chords are just the same old ones: G C D and Em. It definitely needs bass for at least part of it. Perhaps a drum set, although I think even more fitting would be less formal percussion. Clink bottles together, stamp your feet, knock on wood, etc. And who knows what else? Piano, fiddle, Moogs, shit, the more the merrier.
When you upload your new layer, make sure you release it as an isolated stem (in other words, by itself without any other records mixed in), so we can remix it together with all the others. Here I've released a full version as an MP3 file for listening, and also uploaded a ZIP file with stems. So, if you want us to listen to your addition in combination with all the others, you can upload that version, just make sure to also upload the isolated stem(s), either as audio files or a ZIP file.
Also, when I first wrote this and released the lyrics, and then a GarageBand recording of it, I was happy to see that quite a few hitRECorders recorded various versions of their own. LizzieMackie and Metaphorest made a beautiful one, as did TongueCutSparrow and others too. So here I hope to start a definitive bottom layer for the purposes of mass sing-along, but that doesn't mean those other excellent versions will be forgotten :o)
