Bridge to Nowhere

You can feel the beat rising, incrementally, step by step. Melody, chorus, melody, chorus... The air clears. It's that part in the song that builds and builds to it's highest point and then [more inside]

Tokyo Primer

Just working on some cyberpunk feels [more inside]


Do You Feel?

Original Power Pop from Austin. Buzzie is an old band name, but with new membership. The current lineup spent 4 hours in the garage cutting demos 2 weeks ago - this is a rough mix of the live tracks. [more inside]

No Longer Defined (Simple Edit)

A simple version of a cool, brooding electronic jam. Underlying ambient riff accentuated with minor chord synth jabs alternating in EQ/phaser/flanger/stereo effect layers.

Titry / Live and Let Die

Let's throw in a juxtaposition in sonic terms just for the sake of diversity. Here is a free download of Ummagma 'Titry', alongside one right here for 'Live and Let Die'. The first is an instrumental folky track somewhat like Peter, Bjorn and John's 'Young Folks' crossed with Tortoise (with their more upbeat side of postrock). The second is also upbeat in the best shoegazey dreamy fashion - but with ethereal yet solid vocals... Enjoy both :) [more inside]

A Men's Snarehouse production. Watch the video. [more inside]


Line of Life (Ummagma Remix)

When you conceive of how many tracks go into creating a song and visualize them, row upon row stacked upon one another on the computer screen of the producer's studio, it's mind boggling how it could ever come together in perfect symmetry, especially if the tracks are not laid down at the same time. This is the story of one remix. This is Huge Shark 'Line of Life (Ummagma Remix)'. Trans-continental electro dreamscape. [more inside]

Those Aren't Poodles [Greg Nog cover]

I had the day off. I heard the previous song. I started singing it my head like this. I had to share. I am still in my jammas. I am a recalcitrant dog misidentifier, but I'm better known for considering all animals and some human babies gender-neutral.


Those Aren't Poodles

one day Westphal and I were in Chicago and we saw a guy walking two Bichon Frises. one was running way ahead of the guy and one was lagging behind and so Westphal made up a little song about them. good thing i was there to correct his HORRIBLE MISTAKE or WOW he would have looked like a REAL DUMB DOG MISIDENTIFIER

Our Lady Of The Morlocks

Gymnopédie No. 1

Alas, not a TMBG cover. But a droney, sometimes dissonant cover of Erik Satie's Gymnopédie No. 1 on pump organ.

Matt's Bathroom

They Might Be Giants

Here is my take on TMBG for the Metafilter Flood Album! More novelty than novelty, that's my motto (apparently). This is not at all what I had in mind for this somehow. [more inside]


Birdhouse in Your Soul

Even -- or especially -- in the darkest hours of the night or the wee hours of the morning, there is still a Birdhouse in Your Soul. For the Flood project, here is a cover by chara and me. [more inside]

Theme from "Flood"

Why is the world about to fall in love all over again? Why will we be marching hand in hand? Why are the ocean levels still rising up? It's a brand new record for 2015: MetaFilter's cover of They Might Be Giants' classic album, Flood!


Freq Wreck

Short, rhythmic, jazzy


Sredni Vashtar - Awake
