My 12-string and I take a fingerpicking stab at the Husker Du classic. [more inside]

Higher!!!

See, I think about weird stuff. Like, what would happen if you combined Creed and (a really sloppy, tuneless version of) The Buzzcocks? Heh, well, you'd get the Creedcocks, wouldn't you? And you know, I think they might sound a little something like this... [more inside]

Fix You

Here's a quickie for this months challenge to record a song you hate. Fix You, by Coldplay recorded as a really slow, lo-fi, slightly out-of-tune and very out-of-rhythm bedroom song. A tiny preview of my new pump organ makes it's way into this recording (which you can check out here) [more inside]

Tubas In The Moonlight (Cover)

A song by The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, hastily covered as a means of testing out Garageband on the iPad. WARNING: Contains muffled swearing. [more inside]

Everything I Do (I Dun Fer You)

Some rollicking bluegrass as a spoon to the heart of Bryan Adams, Kevin Costner, and basically that whole period of the early 90s. [more inside]

flyball's lament (the verbose version)

this is a take on 'Flyball's Lament' by the Great Big Mulp, which was also covered by ORthey... I made up some additional lyrics about space hazards some time last year, and I've been playing it at parties and whatnot - basically whenever people talk me into playing in front of a crowd.

I'm Yours But Not Really

For the May music challenge. One of Jason Mraz's most popular songs, which to me evokes images of boorish fratboys slamming PBRs, wearing nice hats stupidly and casually observing how sensitive they are because this song is on their iPod. [more inside]

Rock The Casbah

What with revolutions going on in the Middle East, this seems like a particularly appropriate song right now. It's a cover of the Clash's fantastic original, although I have to say I'm not sure Joe Strummer would recognise it as being anything close to his creation. Video version is here. [more inside]

Wicked Little Town (cover)

One of my favorite tunes from Hedwig and the Angry Inch, given the super lofi iPhone Fourtrack treatment. Guitar, melodica, piano, drums. [more inside]

Kraken (Pirates of the Caribbean 2 score cover) — Millimeters of Mercury

This is a hard dance cover of the theme that plays in the score of Pirates of the Caribbean 2 when the Kraken is nom-noming on the ship. It was fun. Enjoy. :]

(Tumble) in the Wind [cover]

Here is a cover of the song (Tumble) in the Wind by Jackson C. Frank. I was drawn to this song by the way he is ostensibly singing to someone, but it feels distinctly like there really isn't anyone he is singing to. Piano, reversed piano, attempt at falsetto, ramshackle percussion.

Steam Powered Aereoplane (John Hartford)

My first post here! This is an attempt of John Hartford's great tune. I used GarageBand for bass and backup guitar, the rest is me -- two tracks guitar, mandolin, and double tracked voice. Hope you like it!

Ain't Too Proud to Beg

It's Valentine's Day, and I wanted to do a song about fighting against heartbreak. Naturally, I could not resist The Temptations. [more inside]

Leave Her, Johnny

Here is an entry for the January Challenge! It is by me and rangefinder 1.4. It is a cover of "Leave Her, Johnny," a traditional sea shanty that was sung by sailors at the end of a voyage, as they were preparing to leave their ship ("her" in the song). [more inside]

Boots Of Spanish Leather

Another "get me out of this musical funk" cover. The more I hear Dylan sing this, the more I think this may be his most beautiful song. Here's my try. [more inside]

Extremely spartan recording, for me. Vox, piano, a simple vox harmony, and a melodica solo. [more inside]

One For The Road - Long Live Rock (Live)

The end of our set Saturday night, recorded from the crowd on my TASCAM DR-07. We opened up for East Bay Ray's new band The Killer Smiles, the band was pretty excited about it, and I think the energy really comes through. [more inside]

Polk Salad Annie

Here's my humble version of Louisiana-born singer/songwriter Tony Joe White's most well-known tune. Recorded live at SABACO in Waseda, Tokyo on December 9, 2010. Loved this song ever since I first heard it at age 12. Here I'm using is the Vietnamese jaw harp called the Dan Moi, plus a wobbly, warbly drone from the JUNO 60 analog synth. Video here.

Grand Canyon (Magnetic Fields Cover)

I received a violin bow this weekend it's been really exciting and fun using it to play the electric guitar, so I thought I'd post a quick and dirty new cover of the Magnetic Fields song "Grand Canyon". Here's a video of me playing the song with the bow. Also, those loud bangs you hear that sound like regular worker crew replacing the roof? Wrong, they are actually hella underground, lo-fi authenticity booster superheros. [more inside]

I'm Looking Through You (Beatles cover)

So scody had a medical adventure today, which got me thinking about how awesome scody is and how much I enjoyed hanging out with her and being music dorks in LA last fall, and this is one of the songs I remember really enjoying during our drunken singalongery. [more inside]

My Roots are Strong and Deep (the Microphones cover)

This is a cover (gah, feels like all I can do lately) of "My Roots are Strong and Deep" by the Microphones. Features my friend Taylor Bridges on heavily distorted banjo, and recorded in this wonderful, cement stairwell back at the school I used to attend. Anyone know of good, secluded, reverby spots in Portland, OR? The sort where people generally won't walk by, but if they do they won't snicker?

Songes of Love

So, I like ben folds, I've been sitting on a great piano arrangement of this forever, and I can't focus enough to attend to the pile of writing I've fallen behind on. But if I'm creating something that can be shared, is it REALLY slacking? This is a cover of one of my favorites from Supersunnyspeedgraphic, the LP, "Songs of Love".

Dang Me

Woke up this morning with a sore throat and my voice about an octave lower than usual so I figured it was time to record a cover of Roger Miller's despicable novelty hit that was #1 on the country charts the day I was born. Despicable because it's a song written from the perspective of a complete cunt. So I brought some self loathing to the table, along with the sore throat and my complete inability to play blues guitar.
