Minimum Wage

Spidey sense tingled. Dashed this off.

Try Again The Best You Can

The lyrics to this song are from a postcard dated 1965-1966, where John Lennon wrote lyrics to a song that he never recorded. I read about it a couple of years ago and wrote music to go with the lyrics. This is how it turned out. [more inside]

Safe and Sound [Capital Cities cover]

Jessamyn asked me to cover this song a long time ago, and I set about it at a snails pace. It's finally done! (Sorry it took so long, darlin.) It started out in my mind as, "What if New Order or the Cure covered it?", and it turned out sounding like me covering it. I worked more over the past month to make sure it sounded the way I wanted it to, and I learned a lot about Garageband along the way. I'm kinda proud of it. And I'm glad it's over. [more inside]

hypotech

Here's my entry for the MetaMeta challenge. It's a cover of dobie's track hypotech from a while ago, done with many acoustic layers. Thanks to dobie for actually sending me the lyrics too! [more inside]

Kitten (in my robot purse) cover

Coming late to this great mefimusic challenge. So many I still want to cover, but here's my noir version of umbú's excellent Kitten (in my robot purse), a song that packs way more adorable and awesome into less than three minutes than should feasibly fit. Hope I'm doing it justice. [more inside]

My Childhood At the Open Mic

If memory serves, in my pre-teen years, bands At the Open Mic tended to sound a little like this. I wish more of them had covered Cortex's songs. [more inside]

Come As You Are

Another Nirvana cover I recorded a while back and just remembered about today. MIDI keyboard + vocals. It was fun to see if I could cover this song without the signature riff.

Ringfinger (by Nine Inch Nails)

This was my submission to a project in which various artists covered songs from Nine Inch Nails' Pretty Hate Machine using at least one circuit bent or modified instrument (Soundcloud link). This one uses a reklus-modified Korg DDD1 and Monotribe (along with a sweet ring modulator he built).

Deck the Halls

This is about the least effort you could put into wishing a merry f'n Christmas. Now with sleighbells. Of course.

Do You Remember the First Time? (Pulp cover)

After I finished this I went back and listened to the original and, okay, wow, that's kind of different. It gets a little Nashville in the middle, which may have been a mistake. Or not.

Se Rapprocher

For the Great Request Raffle, I was assigned Move Closer, by Phyllis Nelson.
I'd actually never heard the song before but on repeated listenings it really grew on me. Great slow groove.
Some of the lyrics were super-cheesy so I thought a solution would be to sing it in a different language. Maybe French?
Then it occurred to me to go FULL ON SERGE GAINSBOURG and here we are. [more inside]

The Tourist

From the beginning to the end; after this track we have only one track left in this absurd amalgam of noise before the whole of OK, Computer? is finished. I hope you've enjoyed this bizarre ride, which has destroyed my voice and changed forever the way I sing, seen the birth of at least one new Gyrophonic instrument, and helped me really develop my comfort and style as a producer and arranger.

Dream a Little Dream of Me [jazz version]

The American standard by Fabian Andre, Wilbur Schwandt, and Gus Kahn. This is my jazzy little version. Started with some noodling and became a proper song. And very easily inspired by the version by Mama Cass Elliott. [more inside]

Suffragette City

When I was assigned this tune for the David Bowie 'Ziggy Stardust' challenge, I was a little worried that I couldn't really manage it, somehow. But I had fun with it and I think it turned out OK. Plus I got this total blam-blam to help me with the promo clip, which you can viddy, my little droogie, at YouTube or Vimeo.

Climbing Up the Walls

Only three tracks left until we've finally finished the full album of OK Computer. The idea here is pretty simple--since we've made basically every other track super creepy, it was time to make the creepiest track on the album something completely different. Presenting rock and/or roll. [more inside]

Frank Mills

This song has been stuck in my head since we walked by the (former) Waverly Theater in Greenwich Village last week.
I had to exorcise it today with some sloppy, mistake-filled guitar-playing.

Keep Your Hands to Yourself (Sketch 1a) (Georgia Satellites cover)

This — and not my post from a year ago — was actually the first sketch of my cover of "Keep Your Hands To Yourself". Be warned, this is not pretty, more like a scribble on a wet napkin than a drawing. It's first-take everything, rushed, and I think it was my first stab at using GarageBand. (Everything before that had been made with Audacity or 4-track.) [more inside]
