The Twelve Days of Customs, Day Nine

Day 9’s song is from jaychuck!

 
Here’s what jaychuck has to say:

Hi, I’m jaychuck. I like Rock Band. When I’m not on that, I like to write online as a freelancer. I have a website called Common Reactor that I update every once in a while with either original or linked content (mostly reviews) about the current state of independent music.

I’m new to the C3 team, so I haven’t had as long of a time as others to release many custom content. My only previous track is Substitution by Silversun Pickups. My future content will try to represent a sect of Rock Band players that, like me, generally like the indie music scene (spanning genres such as indie rock, alternative, new wave, punk, pop, electronica, hip hop, dance rock, indie folk, etc.), though both past and present influences are open game. If you follow current music culture or organizations from either print or online like Pitchfork or Rolling Stone, you’ll get a sense of the music I listen to. If you really want a better idea of what I listen to and may look to chart in the future, check out my last.fm account.

As for the song for today’s 12 Days, I thought Royals by Lorde would be a great fit. We were essentially told to pick big songs for this project and I don’t think there was a bigger pop phenomenon this year than Royals. It’s a song that really changed the perception of what a Top 40 song of this generation could sound like: minimalist atmosphere, hip hop influences, and realistic worldviews all from a 16-year-old New Zealander. The triple harmony vocals alone make for a fun time in the game, but drummers will be surprised how tricky the patterns can be here too. Hopefully this will be a great fit to your RB library. Enjoy, everybody.

(Remember, this is just a reveal; all of the songs will be released together on December 25. Check back tomorrow for another awesome song!)

  1. After checking out your last.fm account, I’m really anticipating your upcoming tracks. (I noticed that you listen to a lot of CHVRCHES!) Thanks for the great track.

  2. After also checking your last fm account, I expect great and powerful things out of you. A few of my requests, LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend, Wilco, Radiohead, and The Velvet Underground to name a few, but in all honesty I would be giddy with most of it. Also with those requests I want large amounts from each, like you should have the same obsession with these artists that farottone has with Queensrÿche or Supertramp.

    Thanks and all.
