Banjo + Trombone = Awesome? I'd love your feedback on this new project I am a member of (trombonist). Kind of "new wave bluegrass." I hope you like it.

Suck a Ring

An old-timey, shitkicking, jug-banding, bluegrassy number about oral sex from Courtney McClean and the Dirty Curls, a band in which I play jug, jew's harp, harmonica, and sing harmony vocals. [more inside]

All Day Long

Very short and perhaps sweet. I've been working on this kind of music for a while and this is a good example of where I'm at with it right now. Two Chord Challenge!!! ENJOY! [more inside]

Fume [Beck]

I've seen a few covers recently and decided to dig up this bluegrass version of Beck's Loser B-side masterpiece. Warning: contains the word "fuck", stark depictions of inhalant abuse, and piping hot banjo rolls.

You Are My Sunshine

Let's call it EMOldtimey. Or, really, let's not. It's not a damned clean rendition, but with this old heartbreaker you don't have to be. My pre-verbal niece was purported to love it, and that's good enough for me.

Banjo Lullaby

On preview, this sounds at least 1/4 slower than it should be. Posting anyway. It's my best so far.

LIttle Birdie

Played by my Grandpa. Super Crap recording and he was a bit out of practice, but this is real old timey music from long ago in Western Appalachia. Please overlook the pops and cracks, this is the real deal.

I'm Going Away

By god, it's a bluegrass song! Thought of it because of this superlative Williams interpretation.
