First of all, we would like to say thanks to everyone that's given us support. This EP is one that were are vastly proud of and we think it really shows through on the music. While we still have a ways to go to improve, it's great to see progress and to hear it reaffirmed by our fans. So thanks to all of you and thanks to Newgrounds for giving us the opportunity to start this in the first place!

Alright, so here's the list of songs in order of appearance:
(1) Welcome to the Party
(2) Ready to Go
(3) I Couldn't Tell Her
(4) Break Away with Lira Yin
(5) These Walls with Lira Yin
(6) Just Seventeen

We would also like to mention a BIG thank you to Lira Yin. She's got an amazing voice and is incredibly nice and easy to work with! You should definitely check out her stuff on her myspace (link at the bottom to her page).

In this album, we tried to work a LOT on vocals and while they're better, it's still not our strong point, so if you guys have any suggestions let us know. We'll be practicing throughout the year to get better. We also tried to make the transitions in the preview a bit more smooth thereby making this "song" more than just a lump of sounds.

The entire album is available on many of the main digital distributions stores (iTunes, Amazon.com, etc) - links to the stores are on our Myspace. Don't forget to subscribe to us using the RSS feed - it'll be easier to keep track of our songs and updates with the new feature (you can access it by going to our User Page).

Also, we've got a free download of "I Couldn't Tell Her" available. It's from a program sponsored by Windows, so be sure to check it out! Oh, did we mention it's FREE! Here's the link:

Still very good.

I don't particularly like the start of the song, its decent, and your music is much better than decent. Generally this song isnt quite as good as your others, the slower pace doesn't really seem to help your voice, and the voice seems to be a theme with your music. I recommend lowering the pitch some so it sounds a little more... i dunno, it just seems like it would sound better that way, but thats just me.

I do like Lira Yin's voice a lot in this song, it fits very well.

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Thanks! This was actually a demo for our Sounds of Summer EP (on sale on iTunes). Anywho, it's rather old and I think that the songs themselves are good, but the demo's definitely for promotional use.

YAAAAAAHAAAAAAAAA !!!1!11!1

I WANT THIS EP !
IT'S TO AWESOME!!!

I LOVE YOU GUYS !

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Haha thanks Kiku!

RESPECT!!

dude awesome my gf loves it to *starts dancing* XD anyway Thank U for providing AWESOME MUSIC 5/5 and 10/10

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Thanks!

Very cool

I'm especially impressed with your ability to blend the vocals with the song so easily. I've been experimenting with vocals recently and can't get the music and vocals to blend without one overshadowing the other.

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Thank you!

Great previews

Lotta different styles going on here. Especially like the collabs with Lira Yin, she has an amazing voice. Suggest you do make more music with here voice.

Keep up the great work!

ApproachingNirvana responds:

Thanks! We have a couple things in the works, so definitely keep an eye out for that.
