Come Fire Engine Come

Another song by the kid, in which a fire engine is summoned. Backing of canned wah guitar loops + laugh track supplied by me. Not a musicchallenge because my kid is very cool.

Kinderstash

A riff song about using a kid's room to hide contraband. Two tube amps, a 1970's generic-brand Japanese drum kit and some other stuff.

This Song Was About Crying

It's a snow day here in Wisconsin and that means that the kid and I are recording. This one is 5 tracks of kid vocals -- sort of a nonverbal impressionistic vibe this time -- with some canned drums and synth. And some crying at the end.

I don't love you, bees, and I am a fly

The four-year-old barfed in preschool this morning and the two of us are home for the day. We just recorded this song: he's singing and playing drums, I'm shaking the rattle. It seems to be about bees, bears, and tyrannosaurs chasing each other through the forest. I like the ringing declaration "I'm a fly! I'm a fly!" that closes the song. Also, the lead singer peed himself a little right at the end, which I think is pretty rock and roll.

The Alphabet Song

A strummy, easy-going version of the alphabet song as I sing it to my 3-year-old son. Not the standard melody. [more inside]

Photographing the Deceased Child

I've decided to make lo-fi recordings of old songs I wrote in my 20s and early 30s. Many of these songs are between 15 and 20 years old and have not been preformed since they were written. [more inside]

Blah blah blah

This is another children's song, and it's even better than the last one. Induces uncontrollable giggling in test audiences - for the young, and the young at heart. [more inside]

Saturday night at the Ranch

This is what happens when the neighborhood kids crash my party. I dropped the beats, they uh, did something. There's not much musical talent here per se, but it is an interesting social snapshot. There were four kids, it's difficult to make them out because they all sound the same. It's really funny to me that they all think that they are future rap stars. Fo Shizzle!
