The Devil Walks the Earth

Here's a live recording of a song I premiered at a gig two nights ago (July 18, 2014). The bassist accompanying me is Keigo iwami, from the Swamp Root Jimmies. The song is anti-war, anti-greed, anti-death. Video here.

Mystery Intergalactic Radio Burst Detected

A fun composite/mishmash of song ideas (and some narration) originally created in response to a sound track idea request for an eccentric little animation a friend of mine was trying to get going. Not sure if the animation will ever come about but here is what I put together for it.

Me and Al

This is a sketch of a work in progress. It started out as a simple cascade riff on the top three strings of the guitar and morphed into what appears to be an Irish fiddle lament. [more inside]

Paperweight

Mining old acoustic songs to deconstruct and add beats to. This song gutted this time.

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]

It's Not So Bad

An quickish acoustic one, with lyrics about my dad, his melanoma, and a couple of other things. Has probably the most acrobatic bridge bit I've ever done. [more inside]

Whimsy Will Be the End of Me

A remix of an old acoustic cover of a Slipknot song. Glitched-out and re-sampled beyond recognition.

Lynchburg Town

Not the old-time tune you may be thinking of. Fretless banjo with a percussion loop. (As it happens, Garageband's Jazz drum kit instrument has a rattle that sounds a lot like a jawbone.) [more inside]

Old Joe

A popular 19th century minstrel tune with fretless banjo, tambourine and vocals. (Different from the old-time tune by the same name, and not related to Old Joe Clark either.) Lyrics as recorded are not offensive.* [more inside]

22 (not a t. swift song)

I took a break from music stuff for six months, and then came up with three songs in rapid succession. I'm out of practice, and I'm not in love with this one, but it's the best of the three. Posting just so I don't completely fall out of the habit.

I Am The Cosmos

After flaking on too many challenges I was determined to get this one in under the wire, despite whatever life threw up in the meantime to distract me (quite a lot as it happens, but in a good way). [more inside]

Never Took a Dollar from a Dead Man

This is S&H, from a show we did just the other night here in Tokyo. I'm so digging working with percussionist Habu Hiroshi, he's really bringing the groove. Video here.

Oh Death (by S&H, live, April 2013)

Well it isn't the first time I've posted this song to Metafilter Music. Nor is it the second, third or fourth. But, in my defense, I'd say that all of these versions are, well, rather different from each other, in their various ways. This fifth one is from my duo band S&H, and was recorded live at a little African restaurant in Shinjuku. Video here.

River Town

Sometimes various musical genres blend together to create something fresh and brilliant - the old with the new, analogue with digital, with styles and sounds intermeshing to create a new fabric. That is what we were after with this song, which has got to be the Ummagma song that leans most towards folk-rock. A little hiatus from dreampop. [more inside]

Face of Appalachia

Discovered that my new Focusrite will covert old cassettes to digital. This is from around 1978, my friend Karen and I covering a Lowell George and John Sebastian song that I learned off a Valerie Carter album. [more inside]
