Dark as a Dungeon

An old Merle Travis song that I learned years ago when I first started getting into bluegrass. Another chance to break in the new resonator guitar, and do some fun chorus harmonies. [more inside]

In The Pines

I went and bought my first resonator guitar yesterday, a Gretsch Honey Dipper (evidence), and this seemed like a good tune to try and break it in on. [more inside]

Paranoid Shepard

This is an endlessly rising Radiohead cover vignette; a section from Paranoid Android rises a whole step and repeats itself, and does so again, six times total, before returning to where it started, as a kind of large-scale take on the Shepard tone. [more inside]

The Golden Age (Beck cover)

A synthed out, vocoded take on Beck's extremely non-synthy song off of Sea Change, as an excuse to fiddle around with Reason 8. [more inside]

Carl Sandburg (Sufjan Stevens cover)

threeants' lovely cover of Chicago reminded me of this version of another song off that same album that I recorded ten years ago, and made me realize I never posted it to Music. So here it is! [more inside]

Those Aren't Poodles [Greg Nog cover]

I had the day off. I heard the previous song. I started singing it my head like this. I had to share. I am still in my jammas. I am a recalcitrant dog misidentifier, but I'm better known for considering all animals and some human babies gender-neutral.

Gymnopédie No. 1

Alas, not a TMBG cover. But a droney, sometimes dissonant cover of Erik Satie's Gymnopédie No. 1 on pump organ.

They Might Be Giants

Here is my take on TMBG for the Metafilter Flood Album! More novelty than novelty, that's my motto (apparently). This is not at all what I had in mind for this somehow. [more inside]

Birdhouse in Your Soul

Even -- or especially -- in the darkest hours of the night or the wee hours of the morning, there is still a Birdhouse in Your Soul. For the Flood project, here is a cover by chara and me. [more inside]

Theme from "Flood"

Why is the world about to fall in love all over again? Why will we be marching hand in hand? Why are the ocean levels still rising up? It's a brand new record for 2015: MetaFilter's cover of They Might Be Giants' classic album, Flood!

Hot Cha

It's They Might Be Giant's Hot Cha for the MetaFilter Flood cover album. And, yes, it goes a bit strange at times.

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]

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]

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).

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.
