Women and Men

My contribution to MetaFilter's Flood cover album. [more inside]

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

We made an EP.... here's the title track. Featuring Sredni Vashtar's usual swirls and loops and noises, it was one of four songs recorded and mixed late last summer in South London [more inside]

A profane dance celebrating being on vacation. [more inside]

Hot Cha

It's They Might Be Giant's Hot Cha for the MetaFilter Flood cover album. And, yes, it goes a bit strange at times.

Rhythms and samples

Shame the Devil (Turn it Up)

Quick if somewhat epic demo knocked together over the weekend... featuring glockenspiel, mellotron, piano, and baritone twang. Video shenanigans featuring multiple clones over here.

Beautiful Micro Disco

Well, what you've really got here is 'Beautiful Moment' by Ummagma, which is a lofi acoustic/electronic blend with passionate and melodic male vocals and also 'Micro Macro', which begins in neo-ethno-folk territory but ends up with a burst of indietronica. To boot, here is Ummagma 'Lama (Irregular Disco Workers Remix)' to really throw a wrench in this acoustic lofi approach to making music :)

It won't be the same

Old slow acoustic thing. Live the snare. [more inside]

Kiev (original version)

A song, or really any artform, can be born from one's happy place, just as it may be born of frustration. It seems these days, that a lot stem from the latter, but this song is notable in that it seeks the former by the end of the song. Doesn't everyone want a light at the end of the tunnel? This is Ummagma 'Kiev' . [more inside]

I Also Do Weddings


December 29


DTMFA ballad. [more inside]

River Town

Where does one genre begin and another one stop? I'm asking myself the very same question every time I hear that this song is indie or pop rock or folk rock or dream pop. Well, whatever one calls it, I hope you enjoy this. [more inside]

LDR in Space, or Interstellar Song

A brief, ridiculous tune about space travel.

We Want A Rock

Hereby submitted for the MetaFilter Music Flood 25th anniversary tribute album. [more inside]


distant sounds: slow, forward-moving, reminiscent; warm ambient winds + tumbling bass

06 hexas - vampire deer

last song - the road goes on forever [more inside]


When synth and guitar blend with electronica and vocals that are not too up-front in the mix, but not totally phased out to be lost in the mix, often some really nice sound is what can happen. At least that is what we think happened here with this track. [more inside]

Make You Feel That Way

A Christmas Wish

Almost Over

Another track off the new album, with bonus video and links to the evolution of the song from a first sketch as posted here on MeFiMu. [more inside]
