SMWCentral Official Annual Music Tourney #2 (2022) - Preliminary Round: Set X

Non-SMW

There are now [slightly less than] 24 hours left in the submission period! Submit and/or update your submissions if you haven't already!
Check out my WIP romhack!
i know this isnt really a discussion thread but can i say rhizome youve submitted a song from my 2021/2022 aotys in back to back tourneys. you are in my head. i was gonna pick a 070 shake track but was too indecisive.

theres actually really fun music picks all around from everyone, this feels like its gonna be one of the most genre-diverse tourneys weve had. wish people werent too scared to submit black metal and power electronics 👉👈
Phuture Doom - Phuneral Phuture
Objekt - Bad Apples (Bandcamp — also it dropped five days ago)
Tennyson - L'oiseau qui danse (Bandcamp)

Deciding on these was hard and very last-minute which was stressful. Looking forward to this.

Ask and you shall (apparently) receive! Also there was I Am A Lake Of Burning Orchids last(?) tourney, so like, you're good #fim{:B}

Yessssssss
Submissions are now CLOSED!

First of all, I needed a very specific number of songs for this tourney so I could split the songs evenly, so I had to get one last filler song. For this, I asked my friend dragnalus who's very into music for a submission, and she gave me:

The Smashing Pumpkins - Cherub Rock

Anyway, now for the good stuff. Since this tourney has a TON of new people...first of all, thank you all for joining, and welcome to the tournament! Second of all, I figured I'd make a post explaining how the tourney works. This post will focus on the Preliminary Round.

-------------------------------------

SETS:
Every 48 hours, a set of songs will be posted and you'll have to vote for your two favorite songs from that set. There are 208 songs in total, and they will be divided into 26 sets of 8 songs each. The order of the sets and the songs within them is completely randomized, but songs by the same artist or nominations by the same person will not appear in the same set. The two songs with the most votes will move on to the Bracket Round; unlike the previous tourney, some ties will be allowed to move on since there's a lot of free space in the bracket.

Some things to keep in mind:
- You're allowed to vote for your own submissions.
- You're allowed to vote even if you didn't submit any songs; likewise, you're not required to vote if you did submit songs.
- The way you vote doesn't matter as long as you make it clear which songs you're voting for; some people rank and/or write their thoughts on every song in a set, while others just pick their winners. Again, it doesn't matter as long as you make your winners clear.
- You're allowed to only vote for one song, but you're generally meant to vote for two since two songs will make it through.

-------------------------------------

SCORES & SEEDS:
Every song will receive a "score" based on the amount of votes it received divided by the amount of people that voted in that set. For example, if a song gets 18 votes in a set with 30 voters:

18 / 30 = 0.60

These scores will be used to determine the songs' seeds, which will be used to create the pairings in the Bracket Round. If you don't quite get it, those won't come into play for quite a while, so don't worry about them for now.

For those interested, all of the songs, their sets, and their seeds can be found HERE.

-------------------------------------

The first set will be Set A, and it'll be out tomorrow, June 27th at 1:30 PM EST. If you're in the Discord server, you can ask for the Tourney Toads role to be pinged whenever new sets go live.

I took notes while listening and I will subject you to them. Everything in no particular order.
If you like anything I'm remarking upon negatively, don't worry about it, I probably don't mean it personally

Akira Ishiguro - Aerobics of Alien
I guess, this is the best in the set?

Sevish - Starfish
This is cool but in a stronger set I would not be voting for it.

NO?
TWO-MIX - Just Communication
Pleasant vibes honestly.

Ghost - Square Hammer
It's fine, I wouldn't go out of my way to listen to it though.

NO
HOME - Hold
I forgot a song was playing by the end of this.

Modern Talking - No Face, No Name, No Number
Entirely unremarkable.

Genesis - The Cinema Show
Lyrics gave me rancid vibes all around honestly, shame cause I might've liked the song too if not for the lyrics.

Parokya ni Edgar - Picha Pie
Shut up.
Genesis - The Cinema Show
TWO-MIX - Just Communication

Shoutouts to Starfish for being itself and Ishiguro for goin' hog-wild on the set, as well as Picha Pie for making me hungry. I can't say that I didn't enjoy any of the songs in this set, I guess my top two just clicked with me more.
Sevish - Starfish
Ghost - Square Hammer
