Album's finished, yo. What better reason to give you another outtake? B-movies is available from CD Baby (North America) and the B-movies web shop (elsewhere); or get cheap, legal MP3s from Amie Street.

Another song I've recorded this summer, guitar, voice, phrase sampler (you can hear the click triggering the chorus here). As always, critique, etc - I'm totally open to suggestions and ideas as far as where (and whether) to develop these ideas

Happy Birthday, Mom!

This is a little song I put together for my mom's birthday a few days ago. Unfortunately, tuning was an issue, especially with all the untunables -- the toy piano, old keyboard w/dying batteries, and dollar store recorder. Well, I think it's still kinda fun, regardless.

Piano piano piano

I think this is a pretty fun riff/song. Using a piano, loop pedal, and recording on my laptop Critique the hell out of it, as usual. (And, yes, I'm technically no pianist.) Any suggestions about how to 'flesh it out' would be welcome, too!

So Weird

Submitted to SongFight (under pseudonym Minty Handy) for the about-to-be-posted fight "So Weird", and felt like posting it here as well. The musical journey from "where's my uke and what's this week's title?" to "oh crap, gotta pick up the kids, one more take and I'll submit it" took about an hour.

Never Alone

I thought I'd toss up a recent demo I'm unsure about and see what the feedback is. There are big problems with the drums, chorus vocals, lead guitar, to name a few, but those are easily fixed, if it's worth it. Sounds like Uncle J on the bass.

studio time: 2007-03-25

First thing: this file is 9.98 megs. Score. Second: The track is upwards of ten minutes. It's from a series casually referred to as studio time - hit the jump for a better description. The upshot is that this is me, sitting at a piano, with no particular idea of what to play.

Three Ringer

Someone gave me a Hammond Audio-Vari drum machine a few Christmases back, I enjoy really simple music so I put this together. It's inspired by a visit to a circus many years ago. I'm glad I've been drunkenly poking around Metafilter tonight, I posted some music on the 'Projects' section weeks ago but this is much more appropriate.

Crash Into Mr Xcitement

Mashup I made for fun, had laying around on my hard drive, and remembered while reading this thread. The tracks are "Crash" from Gwen Stefani's "Love. Angel. Music. Baby." (written by her and Tony Kanal) and "Mr. Xcitement" from They Might Be Giant's "Mink Car" (and featuring Mike Doughty on vocals.) What I like about it is that neither track is an acapella track, and that both singers (like both music tracks) are overlapping throughout, but it still works -- other than a tempo (but *not* pitch) change to speed up "Crash" and a few measure movements/cuts, no other changes were necessary. Note that release of the TMBG/Doughty track predates the Stefani track, and that I cut off the spoken word intro and painfully long musical ending of the TMBG track (which the Stefani track did not overlap) to save you all download time.

stupid angel boy

This is an older song, comprised about six years ago. It is an angsty song, concocted in response to the second lesbian with whom I was madly enamored declining and telling me I was "beatific". It is a poppy song, and I wouldn't post it were it not, in my opinion, catchy. I'm well over the emotions, but the song is still kinda cute.

The Imlovence (of My Heart)

I had promised Sarah I would write her a song. Granted, that was while we were dating. We're not anymore. But I did promise, and she is a superly awesome person, wholly deserving of a song. The chorus comes from a facecloth we found in a dollar store, and it's words, three of which being nonexistent, can be found within the bowels of this music post.

White Van

I was watching a horror movie about two years ago when it occured to me that it was the music which made me feel uncomfortable and anxious. Since that time I’ve been working on making an album that connects a listener to their own imagery. I have a story for this album, but then I think everyone’s got a story of their own… White Van is a track from my first album, SOUNDTRACK, due to be released October 31, 2007. Thanks for listening!

We're Moving

We are moving in 2 weeks and a while ago we "fluffed" our house to make it look pretty so we could sell it and that entailed removing any trace of human habitation. As a result, all our stuff has been packed away for weeks and I've been going insane in our neatly arranged, showy house in which no one could possibly live a normal life.

Three Prayers in Irish Gaelic: I. Ár nAthair

Way, way back, I posted a request on Usenet for translations of some Catholic prayers into Irish. I wrote a vocal work with those translation for a composition class. For this recording, I used the solo cello sample in Reason and let MIDI take care of the rest. The harmonies weren't part of the original score.

The Parade at Bobbleton

I wrote this in 2004 as a goodbye to the web-game, Game Neverending, which I'd been really into in the preceding period. Bobbleton was probably the most popular location in the game. At the time I was also interested in the chip-music aesthetic of 32-bit games consoles and the work of Nobuo Uematsu and this track was a sort of experiment in trying to achieve that aesthetic without using the consoles themselves.

Sidewinder

Tuned the guitar way down and added some banjo. This song does this thing where it equates "snake" with "girl." Like a metaphor, see. Also: it seems to play better through headphones (possibly because of the use of stereo). But maybe I just have bad speakers.

Casual Friday

So this is a song that my band PROMIS recorded about two years ago. We're from New Orleans and finished tracking on August 27, two days before Hurricane Katrina hit town. The song isn't about New Orleans though--it's about Oakland, California, in particular the Rockridge neighborhod and riding "casual carpool" across the Bay Bridge. The instruments are a CP-30, a synth, drums, and some live violin.

posted by ray_ray at 5:45 PM PST - 5 comments

Paying No Mind

The song started as a very simple guitar progression and evolved from there. I love the sound of crickets, frogs, locusts, rain, thunder, etc. Nature in general. So I found some sound clips, added some more guitar, an oboe here, a drum fill there, and there it is. Simple and relaxing.

Used To Ride That Train

There must've been hundreds of times over the years that I've tapped out a rhythm on a pan full of water while doing the dishes, the pitch woozily shifting as the h2o sloshes about. At those times I've almost always thought, hey, I should put this on a track sometime. Of course, I never did, until the first MeFi Music Challenge, with its "water" theme. Along with the big metal bowl full of troubled waters, you'll hear jawharp, talking drum, bombo drum, bell, shaker and vocal. [Lyrics and more inside]

This song is about my wife, who was far away at the time. Recorded entirely on an old Tascam 8-track: no ones or zeroes allowed.

CREDITS: Tyler Massey (that's me): composition, guitar & rubbishy, slightly-out-of-tune vocal; Joel Hatfield: production, bass, & backing vocal; Alex Kendall, drums; Kevin Allison: guitar & backing vocal. 1995.
