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]

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.

O Holy Night

Despite my lack of religion and the fact that this song has been done to death, I thought I'd give it a shot.

The Best Place In Town Is Also The Darkest

Written for this thing a while ago in which I had a few days to make a song with this title as the prompt and "creative use of starts and stops" as the challenge.

Repeating Phrases

Here's me bashing away on our crappy piano, from this past winter. It's a song about blindly following things.

Boots

A guitar, a buzzing tube amp, a me. Some clapping. From a new collection of songs called Cake Dome, written and recorded entirely in the 29 days of February, 2012. I made a video, which you can watch on Vimeo or YouTube.
