I am a song lover of all genres, but especially enjoy wordplay and clever tuneplay in all forms. While any musical genre is possible, I'd guess a disproportionate number of songs will likely be acoustic guitar + voice or even just multitracked voice. Other instruments: mandolin, electric guitar, midi stuff, merlin, digital piano, trombone...

The whole "metal foot" thing refers to a metal plate permanently inserted in my one foot after a particularly awkward fall which broke a bone in my foot into three pieces. Ouch. But that was over 20 years ago now.

I'm also the lead singer of FAWM's favorite hair metal band, Glorious Disaster.

Most of my demos are going to be rough, just as a fair warning.

FAWM 2016 - 36 songs (Winter Sports -18 songs)
5090 2016 - 80 songs
FAWM 2017 - 78 songs (Alphabet of Adjectives - 26 songs)
5090 2017 - 134 songs
FAWM 2018 - 76 songs (Exploding Teacups - 9 songs)
5090 2018 - 121 songs
FAWM 2019 - 69 songs ("metalfoot sings the periodic table" -14 songs)
5090 2019 - 84 songs
FAWM 2020 - 82 songs (periodic table, another 14 or so)
5090 2020 - 128 songs
FAWM 2021 - 104 songs (periodic table, and a whole lotta collabs!)
5090 2021 - 101 songs
FAWM 2022 -80 songs ("Metalfoot Sings The Periodic Table" project done. Finally.)
5090-2022 - 53 songs (was kinda stuck till I hit on the "songs about small towns in Manitoba" theme)

Married to @kellyk. Father of the @metalfootlings.
Not sure what I'm doing for FAWM this year but I need it!

Thank you for your kind comments on 'Celebrate'.
[avatar]
@kkd
Thanks so much for your comments on “shine” and “the Well is Dry”. It’s nice to know that others relate!
[avatar]
Thanks for listening. After I saw your comment I went back and listened to that track and realized that Soundcloud's mastering made it sound really thin and plus I had the vox mixed too high. I remixed it with the vox lower and reuploaded without SC's mastering so it sounds warmer now.
[avatar]
Hey! Just a shout out and thank you for being such a good collaborator and putting music to Patterns and the World Can Be A Critic. See you at 50/90!
[avatar]
Hey, @metalfoot! Thanks for your generous feedback on NRE and The World's on Fire. Wowsa, you prolific! I look forward to enjoying some of your creations. 😎
[avatar]
I'm glad you like "Consequently the Second Maid." I gather you had inside info on the lyric-writing end of the collab 😀 . Kelly's lyrics were really interesting and fun to work with and called for a somewhat different approach for me, but yeah, I feel good about it. I even played it at a open mic this week with a violinist playing some cool fills. Btw, congrats on your impressive output! That's a lot of songs!
[avatar]
OK, chords for The Wanderer:
Verses
C D# F
C D# F
C
Chorus
A# G#
A# G#
F C#
Bridge
PIcking out the notes of C, Csus2 and Csus4

Now that all looks a bit odd, but it makes a lot more sense when you know that my 12-string is tuned to D standard, where, in order, the chord shapes are the equivalent of D, F, G, C, A#, D# and D, Dsus2, Dsus4
Hope that makes sense!

@reklov
Thanks for listening and commenting "Kyrie Eleison"!
[avatar]
Alex, thanks so much for listening to my song "Dancing in my Dreams".
[avatar]
Thanks for your comment. It s a real life story and it was funwriting it... You re soo quick with songwriting... I Admire that.
[avatar]
Appreciate the kind feedback. if you see something you like feel free to do it.
[avatar]
you sound SO much better than Neil 👍🙌
[avatar]
Thanks for your kind comments about my song "Chaser" ... and congrats on such a successful FAWM 2023! You're an inspiration.
[avatar]
@amusia
Sure, I would love to collaborate sometime!
[avatar]
Thank you so much for “LA Lady.” You had a super FAWM! Wow! Alex is back!
[avatar]
@gb9
Thank you for your kind comment on 'Clean House' and congratulations on an awesome FAWM!
[avatar]
Thanks for listening to my "Tales of Ise" story. These stories are known by heart by Japanese kids and help tyo shape their culture. The Haiku masters refer to them often in their poetry
[avatar]
Thank you for comments.
[avatar]
could be 😁 I’m more like a tortoise .. but I HAVE won FAWMs in the past( I have no idea how hehehe.. must have had hella more spare time.

Oh .. and I’m sooo enjoying MALM like always; this site is so great. watch out for an upcoming listening binge happening on a profile very close to you soon ❤️
[avatar]
😂 Alex… 68 songs? come on…. YOU’RE the awesome one 😂
[avatar]
Holy Prolifery lookit all these songs! Thanks for the peek and comment on Let it Rain, demo is posted!
[avatar]
You're absolutely right, FAWM is a great place to try out new stuff without getting booed off the stage. At worst you might get a polite "Ummmm . . . That was different." FAWM and 50/ 90 have allowed me to dip my toes into punk, funk, metal and others genres I never would have tried otherwise.

Thanks for the kind words and the collaboration, see you on the Tuesday evening chats!
[avatar]
@cts
Seriously? How cool is that? VERY! Field trip? Family outing? Just plain curious about how Herr's makes their chips? Congrats on the win in a very big way!
[avatar]
Not to hand, but I can go back and work it out 😎
I'd be delighted if it became something that you enjoy singing! 👍🏻🤩👍🏻
[avatar]
Re "Over the Horizon", the computer does a verrrrrry large part of the work for me. I wish I could play guitar or piano effectively. I just get plugins and cheat, or ask my partner sometimes to do the guitar stuff. I really want to learn some day!
[avatar]
Too kind! I think we need to clone our bodies so we can listen to all the amazing songs out there while busy with the making music part. I haven't spent a lot of time trying to connect in previous years due to confidence, but this year I've decided it's time to be brave!
[avatar]
Thanks for commenting on "Complacency"! Very kind of you when you have so much going on here up here ^ !
[avatar]
@kosch
Thanks for the comment on "Get On Your Horse And Ride" - this "multi-tracking thang" is new to me, but it's been fun to try!
[avatar]
@andrea
Thanks for your compliment. I've been there too, knowing I can just post something ok, rather than work more. It can be easy to want when time is constrained. I thought about quitting FAWM after the first week but am so happy I stuck it out. I met some great people and helped make some cool songs. I hope you are feeling better and enjoyed FAWM too! You have a huge list of rewards for participating. I will make time to listen to a bunch :)
[avatar]
Cheers on Cycling Proficiency Centre. If you check my profile I have always had a sampler theme for FAWM. One of my supportive kids came up with the theme of using public service announcements and i jumped all over it.

Last year’s Attack From Space and 2021’s Voices From Tomorrow’s Yesterday are my personal favourites. All my music is free to download.

I’m certainly willing to give a collaboration a try. Never done one in FAWM. And other than the brief period when I was the vocal stylist sort of synth player in a punk n’ roll cover, or did some synth jamming with a friend, I’ve been doing this on my own.

But hey if you can’t try something new in FAWM….
[avatar]
@andrea
Wow Alex, 68 songs. That blows my mind. Congrats on a very successful FAWM. Thanks for the great collaboration. I love the way it turned out :)
[avatar]
Hahaha that's ok, but even I realize not every instrument can be a bagpipe. Thanks for listening. I was hoping "Колос" would truly get people going... but then I followed it up with a jaunty sea shanty... oh well.
[avatar]
What can I say? I'm a child of the late 90s and early 2000s.

Also, being able to write it in a lunch break depended on a) having a solid template set up in my DAW, and b) restricting myself to (mainly) one riff for the song. I just got lucky that the riff was half decent.
[avatar]
Thank you for taking the time to listen and comment on The Negotiator! See you next year!
[avatar]
Protect you, Alex. "Splendid" is high praise, and I'm not sure I've earned that! But nothing says you couldn't keep a copy around for 50/90... Probably couldn't make me a collab tag at that point since *my* contribution won't be from 50/90, but I would always be curious to see what you would do with a set of my words.
[avatar]
Challenge accepted. I'll have to think on the likelihood of 50/90 - my living circumstances past June are actually a bit up in the air! For now I get to have a listening feast, which should include a solid dozen of your gems. :)
[avatar]
@amelea
Thanks for the comments 😀 (and I went back and tagged it as electronica now! Thanks for reminding me of that word)
[avatar]
The pipes don't come in until 1:23. The "distorted pipe" is actually my MOOG Grandmother. And I totally love playing it. ;-)
[avatar]
In answer to your question, my recording is all done with a cheap walmart microphone into the audacity software. I generally do one take with both guitar and vocals at the same time because fiddling with it too much stresses me out and makes me just avoid doing it altogether! I definitely have been feeling like I have room for improvement in that area but am not sure what next steps to take without being totally overwhelmed. So if you have any hints or suggestions feel free to send them along :)
[avatar]
Thanks! Congratulations many times over for you!! I've enjoyed many of your songs this month and it looks like you had a very productive time of it!
[avatar]
@clioem
Thanks! I've had some great opportunities this month to explore other sides of what I do... and I am so happy for it.
[avatar]
Well, it is called Acoustic Rebellion 😉
[avatar]
Thanks for commenting on The Leaving Never Ends! I just posted an updated demo. 😊
[avatar]
Thanks for listening to "Blade Runner Blue" -- I'm definitely going to try to tweak it into something more.
[avatar]
And as usual, feel free to change or move things around as you see fit, if it makes it work better.
[avatar]
Yes!!
As in, yes please to a collab on Sycamore Seed. I will add a note to that effect.
[avatar]
It's up. Came out really well, I reckon. And now you have to post at least one more song to hit sixty (wow!)
[avatar]
Perfect! I'll post it after I've been interviewed by John for his podcast. Many thanks!
[avatar]
My goodness, a shout out in the recommended songs thread!
Thank you so much 👍😁👍
[avatar]
Hey! That's sounds great. Would love to hear what you come up with.
[avatar]
Cheers Alex - I hope you're able to shift that headache soon.
[avatar]
1) Thanks for giving a listen to two things I had a stamp on tonight! Your compliments mean a particular a lot because of how prolific, how tuneful, and what a good guy you are.

2) YOU WERE IN THIS AREA?!?!?! About three weeks into 50/90 last year is when @deadhead and I were together recording and editing our album! We could have all met?!??!?
[avatar]
Thanks for your comment and support on "test : quel ami êtes-vous ?" !
I realised after posting that maybe there are no phoney "psychological" test in english speaking magazins. But if you got most of the jokes, I suppose you have your share of this doom.
[avatar]
Oh no, that would be extra -- AND obnoxious! ;) I'd better stop or I'm going to get a reputation as a rabble rouser, when really I'm afraid I'm more of a goody-two-shoes, rules-following people-pleaser. ;)
[avatar]
@newukenewyork As one does!
[avatar]
No, I know, I was amusing myself with excess.
[avatar]
@newukenewyork The trick is you don't need to tag someone on their own wall, only on any other!
[avatar]
@nadine
All cool, I won't be able to rerecord and finish during FAWM ^^
[avatar]
@metalfoot ha! (incorrect placement of comment intended)
[avatar]
@newukenewyork Disjointed conversations are half the fun of the sound boards. 😀
[avatar]
@nadine
Hey, I uploaded my draft cause I don't find the time to work on it until FAWM ends. Let's see if more people want to continue on the instrumental. Just let me know when you find time to continue. I'll restring my guitar...
[avatar]
Thanks for the kind words, you’re already at 53 tracks that’s incredible… I’ll take time to listen to some of your tunes once I reach my 14! ;-)
[avatar]
Thanks x1000 for your continued encouragement, most recently on "The End is Coming For Us." Will I get another one out before the end of the month?!?!
[avatar]
Thanks for your comment on my 'black dots' song! Ha - yes you may be right :-)
[avatar]
Thanks for the kind comment on my take on the “Clean House” skirmish. In fact creating songs on iPad is made very easy by GarageBand, highly recommended!
[avatar]
Thanks, of course, for your kind words on "Catch The Train!"
[avatar]
The comparison to TMBG on Massive Limestone Cube is high praise, thank you! I'm actually using samples from a drum machine they used on their self-titled in the rockier part (I believe the Yamaha RX15), so I figure that adds to the feel. Also super proud of the piano, so thank you for the words regarding it!

I found the image I got the inspiration from on my hard drive if you want a visual regarding the massive limestone cube, though I was imagining it being a bit more "cube" in my head - it's a bit rectangular here. [...]

@jeff9
Glad you enjoyed "Gabrielle". Thanks for taking a listen and for the kind words.
[avatar]
Got inspired, did this. The jpg shows structure and timing; it's 100 bpm in E minor. https://www.dropbox.com/s/go2tbqdf8a473kf/Unexpected.zip?dl=0

If you come up with something, please you can dropbox your vocal stems to me, and I'll mix them in. Cheers!
[avatar]
Thanks again for your comment on my tune
[avatar]
'Really beautiful' will do just nicely, thanks.

Although I suspect all the heart-outpouring going on in the liner notes is forcing people to treat the song with an undeserved reverence which intimidates them.
[avatar]
@kellyk
Do it!! :) (collab)
[avatar]
Thanks for the comment. I had a comment about my tone on a song that was MIDI guitars and I felt awkward about it. I do play around with it and craft it to my tastes, but if tone is in the fingers, they were not my fingers.

I could play it if I needed to, but it would be a lot less enjoyable, unless it went full "so bad it's good".
[avatar]
Hi Alex - things are chaotic here at the moment, as I'm sure you've noticed. If you don't hear from me over the next few days, please set a placeholder. But I will put together a track for you to add vocals to. I WILL do this, I promise!
[avatar]
I like your song "Dust". . I wrote one with the same title last year but it was much more of the eternal dust-of the-Universe-side. You are invited to attempt Uncle Billy's Singing Frog if you wish. I've thought about it but it's Looooongggg.
[avatar]
It's wonderful to find someone who's so in synch with your own style. I look forward to many more of those!
[avatar]
@toms
Absolutely hands down my favorite thing so far this FAWM. Bravo!!!
[avatar]
'tis a feature, not a bug. Cherish it.
[avatar]
Thank you for listening to the epic tale of "Flaco the Eurasian Eagle Owl!" Long may he fly.
[avatar]
thanks for having a read of my lyrics for the Duty calls prompt. And you...your output is enviable and astounding to say the least!!!! I have much in the way of listening to catch up with.
[avatar]
Thanks for the kind words on "When You're Famous!" AND the overall encouragement. :)
[avatar]
@reklov
Happy Birthday, Alex!
[avatar]
Yes, I'd love it if you'd musicate Butterfly in the Wind!
[avatar]
I hear you! For me too, the month's been triple-booked with non-FAWM stuff. Haven't been able to listen, barely having time to write. Hoping to do more in the home stretch!
[avatar]
Thanks for listening to “Worth Slaying For.” That Bbm6 was worth writing for!
[avatar]
Hey, thanks for the comment. I changed some things on Sounding Off and I think it is a million times better. Let me know what you think.
[avatar]
Thanks for checking out Jobs For Early School Leavers and your kind comments. I have really been enjoying the Public Service Announcements theme and think I may have a few more tracks left in me this FAWM.
[avatar]
Thanks for the comment on Schmendrick! I haven't read The Last Unicorn, so I had to look it up, but you are correct, Schmendrick is indeed the hapless magician in that book. I was familiar with the Yiddish term, which was where, if Wikipedia is to be believed, the author of The Last Unicorn got the name, because his character is apparently quite schmendrick-like. Thanks for broadening my cultural horizons!
[avatar]
Aw, thanks, man. That's really lovely to hear!
It wouldn't exist without your wonderful lyrics 🤩🤩🤩
[avatar]
Thanks for tossing "Who Would Be Mine" out of zong-land! The chord progression was actually a mistake -- I read my notes wrong and initially meant to use a minor vi not VI for the opening chord but then -- I did what I did! ;)
[avatar]
Thanks for de-zonging my hospital song! Glad you liked it, and I did think of you when I was doing the whistling :-D
[avatar]
Yes! Please! You are the perfect person for it!
[avatar]
@amelea
Thanks for the comment on Sofie On The Sofa, as always! You are wise to stay away from the drink...
[avatar]
Hey, I am so glad that you are having such a fruitful FAWM: I wrote an interactive song and it would be great to have you take part in it if you feel inspired to join i! https://write.fawm.org/songs/17960#c71362
[avatar]
oh my oh my, lookit that songlist, where do I even start...
[avatar]
We do indeed! No stress though… Shall I send you some lyrics?
[avatar]
Thank you for all the encouragement! You definitely helped me hit 14!
[avatar]
Exquisite Corpse piece, I hope! Sending this as a share link, hoping it works...Please let me know, & thank you for your patience with the tech-challenged! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Wwvboz_biTM35a5N9bEGBipuITI0KDyE/view?usp=sharing

(I would love to send a better one without the timing fumble later tonight, if that's acceptable. If not, no problem, I can go with this...)
[avatar]
Thanks so much for your comment on my Is There One More First Dance from the #fakeit challenge!
[avatar]
Thanks for listening to "The Lights on the Radio Tower!"
[avatar]
Picking Up The Check - have a go at it
[avatar]
Thanks for the kind words on my lyrics. Much appreciated! As for iquity, I figure if Shakespeare could create 10k words, we have license to add a few. And, yep, just the opposite of iniquity. Happy FAWMing! :)
[avatar]
Shucks, thanks! I feel really at home here! And more inspired by than envious of the stellar talent I'm getting to witness around me, which...whew! My inner critic can sometimes take that the other direction.
[avatar]
Thanks for the comment on "Carl Perkins and the Meaning of Life." I'm glad I achieved catchy. Don't feel I can pay tribute to Carl Lee Perkins with a less-than-catchy song!
[avatar]
@johns
Go right ahead Alex.
[avatar]
Hi Alex, I've made you a collab'or on "Let Go," and you can post at your convenience. Cheers--Andrew
[avatar]
i'm in awe of your superhuman ability to write so many songs while also listening to and commenting on so many others! are you a robot? ;) thank you for your comments!
[avatar]
Thanks for listening to "Taken Alive." I was working through some stuff yesterday morning ;)
[avatar]
No rush, I have a packed time until mid next week.
[avatar]
Just sent you a little something by email... 😁
[avatar]
Yeah glad you found VOL Bill is as prolific as maybe anyone ever. Would be remiss not to mention the Audible Sigh album is amazing and a crime that they never got major national recognition and airplay. Looks like you have maybe more songs on here than anyone, so it would seem you are rather prolific as well!
[avatar]
hey Alex thanks for the listen and comment on Strange Sounds!! Very much appreciated!
[avatar]
Alex, you play a mean guitar! 😄

I'm definitely going to start recording some instruments and doubling the speed to use in my songs, it sounds awesome!
[avatar]
Yay. 7 day FAWM win. Good job.
[avatar]
Hello! I've been super sick in bed since Thursday. However, if you want to come up with some music, I'll gladly work on a toplining vocal part once I'm feeling up to it. It's been a rough week. I also didn't realize the random collabs were weekly, so I need to go probably remove myself from the pool for the rest of FAWM. You can email me at stacykoviakmusic@gmail.com
[avatar]
@amusia
Yes, I am a little late, but I made it to the party!
[avatar]
Putting Gordie Johnston, Big Sugar (what a name!), and you on my playlist, friend. Thank you.
[avatar]
Thank you for the note on "Didn't Say Stay" -- singability (spellcheck says that is NOT a word) is something I'm working on, as I feel very weak on melody creation.
[avatar]
Hi there
Just a note to say I have now put a demo up of my Winter's Tale

https://write.fawm.org/songs/14193

Thanks for your comments when it was just lyrics.
[avatar]
Thanks for the kind words on Hey Minnesota - I definitely envision it with music but I'm glad the a capella version suits the theme!
[avatar]
Thanks for listening to “Flaming June.” My first skirmish was a rush!
[avatar]
thx, here's a pan, there's a pan
[avatar]
Thanks for the cokment on 'Get it done'. Has taken a couple of days to figure out how to respond. Yes there's a few chords of interest in there, they felt like they fit so I popped the melody on top and it came out alright.
[avatar]
Yes, @frozenlonesome is in Winnipeg, but I realize ALL Manitobans are well acquainted with insane cold all winter long. I don’t know how you guys do it!
[avatar]
Thanks for your comment on "Fish Baby Birthday" I think I have a tendency to overwork songs and make them TOO clear, if that makes any sense, so I'm trying to be okay with writing something that isn't always going to make literal sense to people. :)
[avatar]
@scubed
Thanks for the lovely comment on the laundry morph! I really enjoyed working with your song!
[avatar]
Hi...did you see my note about the 4 track problem? I can only record at 2X. If this is a problem you might have to count me out. Check the full note on the 4 Track Challenge forum....
[avatar]
@clioem
Thanks so much for your enthusiasm about Erratica :)
[avatar]
Thank you for the kind comment on "Let Go." I'm honored that you'd like to musicify it, so go for it. I have a bad habit of making changes after posting, but you can use any version, and I'm okay with your lyrical tweaks, too.
[avatar]
@arose
Thanks for the comment on words half full, good to see you again this year! You're killin it as always!
[avatar]
Thank you so much for the helpful feedback on my song! I’m so glad you liked it!! Really appreciate you listening! 😀 And yes, if I were the therapist I would not be amused. 🤣
[avatar]
Thanks for being my first commenter of FAWM 2023 :-)
[avatar]
Thanks for the tasty comment on "Nutrition!"
[avatar]
I would like to thank you very much for your that kind words on "Love me the same way I do".
[avatar]
Thanks for the listen! Serum is a digital synth!
[avatar]
I'm so glad somebody liked that chord on "Lord!" Thank you! Felt like a risk to put an F in there (only place in the song) but I tried it and liked it.
[avatar]
Thanks for the kind words on first dance.
[avatar]
As far as I'm concerned, lyrics from the internet might as well come from AI. ☺️
[avatar]
I like the idea of a tune percolating! If something connects for you on The World Can Be A Critic, give me a holler. : )
[avatar]
@miga
Thanks for the "hey!" One of these days I'll sit down and write. Over and out!
[avatar]
@andrea
Thanks for totally getting the lyrics. Sure, take a stab at the music! Let me know if you need anything from me :)
[avatar]
Hey Alex! Collab???? Different format this year? Do you want to record some guitar chords, verse chorus (and bridge too if you like) if you record them to a click I can rearrange them and have some fun.
[avatar]
@sollis
Thanks for listening to my track, Alex. You're not kidding about the weather in Manitoba; I just looked it up and thought the temperature was a typo at first!
[avatar]
@nadine
Never heard of that sorry. Maybe its not in my region?
[avatar]
Ah bless you! Am making hay while the sun shines... Glad you like the my fake-it-take, can't wait to hear yours later in the month! Thanks for letting me run with the Home Alone piece too - I just about managed to get it sounding how I wanted in my head! Was so lovely to then do a few goes on your fake-it and just get it out there (and it felt so natural, lovely chord progressions).
[avatar]
Any mention of Sufjan is 1000% a compliment in my books. :)
THANK YOU!
[avatar]
@cts
You've got mail, amigo!
[avatar]
Thank you so much 🙏☺️
[avatar]
Bless you! May I take first stab (assuming Mr Coops agrees) and come to you if I don’t get to what I’m after?… I have a very particular style in mind I’m wanting to try…
[avatar]
Just seen we both asked for srcoops Home lyric! Maybe we could collab on it?… or I can fight you for it… 😉 I do have a certain vibe in mind which may not be your thing…
[avatar]
Hi! Thanks for letting me know about the new website! Here I am, checking it out!
[avatar]
Thanks for the kind comment! Welcome back to another FAWM. Good to see you again :)
[avatar]
Thanks so much for the kind comments! Looking forward to more FAWM!
[avatar]
This is a cool idea with the periodic table. I am just starting on a similar project, though I don't think it will be as in depth as yours. Have you made a forum for this?
[avatar]
@nadine
Thank you! Sometimes I just feel like screaming. I didn't eat something for lunch, I just grabbed my smartphone and yelled. I feel much better now. Actually, I'm quite impressed of how much my screams improved in one year...
[avatar]
Okay, sent it in an email to your linked Hotmail account. 🤘
[avatar]
Ha! All good. No one really listens to lyrics anyway. 😍
[avatar]
Hi Alex

Happy FAWMing!
[avatar]
Hey there, I'm your harmony singers challenge lyricist... Any requests before I send you a song filled with nouns and regret?
[avatar]
Hi Alex! Welcome back to FAWM, and I am glad we’re matched in a rando collab!
[avatar]
Hey Alex! I think we have lots f catching up to do:-) Have a good start!
[avatar]
Thank you, I dropped the ball last year for multiple reasons, I think I did three songs for FAWM and nothing really new at all for 50/90. Excited to be back at it this year! I look forward to hearing some of your songs.
[avatar]
Hi there, have a good FAWM, lloking forward for your new songs and exploding collabs!
[avatar]
@cts
Hello, good sir! That idea I shared with you last year has yet to be realized and I’m hoping it will come to fruition this year. I’ve got a few irons in the fire, but hopefully this a collaboration that can come to be. Happy FAWMing!
[avatar]
welcome back! Really enjoyed your tracks and feedback during 50/90 :)
[avatar]
Beard on, dude. Always. And have a great FAWM!
[avatar]
Hey Alex!!! Happy FAWM great to be here <3
[avatar]
@reklov
Hi Alex! I wish you a good fawming time!
[avatar]
Looking forward to checking out your newest works this FAWM - good luck, but with those stats ... I don't think you're gonna need any :)
[avatar]
@nadine
You're welcome! I really enjoy listening to indie music. I'm fed up with radio pop and hyped bands.
[avatar]
@kristi
Happy FAWM to you!
[avatar]
@jamkar
A happy FAWM to you Alex!
[avatar]

Hello, Alex! Hello, #laundrycore !

Alex! I cannot put into words how awesome I think you are for how you contribute to this community with your art and your grace. I’m so grateful to know you and will try not to be overwhelmed by the sheer number of songs you write and listen to more of them this year. Maybe you can let me know the ones you think I’ll like?

February without a Metalfoot collab would be like a comparison without a comparative.

Let's do this!

Thank you Alex! I try to limit my capacity this year, cause I haven't finished most of last year's writes 😥 But I let you know if I have an idea that's made for you. I haven't forgotten about that! 🤗
