Gotta Get A Message to You

I thought I had uploaded this 1998 live living room recording but I guess not. Yet another example of my old band's Bee Gees fixation. [more inside]

Keep Your Hands to Yourself (Sketch 1a) (Georgia Satellites cover)

This — and not my post from a year ago — was actually the first sketch of my cover of "Keep Your Hands To Yourself". Be warned, this is not pretty, more like a scribble on a wet napkin than a drawing. It's first-take everything, rushed, and I think it was my first stab at using GarageBand. (Everything before that had been made with Audacity or 4-track.) [more inside]

High and Dry

A cover of Radiohead's H&D on resonator guitar in open G, for the minor/major challenge. I originally intended this to be a shitkicking country stomper but it turned into something quite different. [more inside]

Butterfly Nets

This is a cover of Bishop Allen's "Butterfly Nets." While the song is a favorite of teenage girls on with ukeleles on Youtube, I am instead a 34-year-old baritone with Garageband and an OP-1.

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.

4AM Cover

Need a little help. Here's a nice little cover I did with a good old friend I've been playing with since highschool. Need some help. Using a logitech usb mic which I generally like the sound/versatillity/ portability of. Trying to figure out how to cut out the high-pitched noise it comes with. [more inside]

Where Everybody Knows Your Name (cover)

The 1980s friendliest theme song (with some odd verses that don't get played during the show's intro). Played with my firefly banjolele.

The Rose

I'm stuck at home with a cold, so I thought I'd comfort myself with this cheesy old song and learn to sing in harmony using GarageBand. [more inside]

Last minute entry. This was supposed to be, and will eventually be, an a capella/choral twofer with Fitter Happier, but I wasn't able to finish it in time. [more inside]

ian curtis' bathroom surprise

Oh shit. I lost the power supply to the br-532 in the move, so to be econimical i got a br-800 which arrived this week.. i recorded all this within the last 2 hours and about a half hour ago realized i had no idea how to get it off the damn thing. turns out it was the same way as the 532 but to make a short story short used the mixing on the 800 and um.. here we go.. straight off the br-800.. also played bass for the first time in 500 years

Fitter, Happier, World Famous

Like all supergroups, the OK LA MeFi Action Band sometimes pares itself down to a solo performer and producer arrangement. Nobody leaves the room, you understand, but everyone takes a drink and everyone but me holds their breath. [more inside]

East Harlem

Still on the horse, this time with a Beirut cover! This one took a lot longer, 3 nights of iPad work. Beirut usually has a lot of brass instruments, so this one was a real challenge, but I'm proud of how it came out. [more inside]

Paranoid Android

The epic second track off the Roddy's O-Face record. It's pretty hefty compared to the rest of the songs, so make sure you can handle a solid minute and forty five seconds. [more inside]

Subterranean Homesick Dylan

It's well known that Radiohead went to Bob Dylan for inspiration on the title of Subterranean Homesick Alien; it's less well known that they actually lifted the song structure and lyrics themselves from this rare demo recording. [more inside]

Well, this is my cheater because Let Down is my song. But it is turning out to be difficult, so I've been working up a few others to play when I get pissed off at Let Down. [more inside]

Karma Police (Tragically Straight Version)

A little spit-polish on the learning-to-play-it demo I recorded after I got the assignment. I had to get it mixed and off the desk before I spent the rest of my life adding the goofy little fills I missed the first time through. [more inside]
