Sugar, Sugar

On the day that I was born (in San Diego), the Archies' quintessential bubblegum pop song was a #1 hit (in England). This is a pretty straightforward version, although the guitars and bass and drums have all been replaced with marimbas and glockenspiels. [more inside]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

Cover of the Ewan McColl classic, at the original speed for once. So I know covering a classic like this is pretty dumb -- how you gonna compete with Johnny Cash, Peggy Seeger and Roberta Flack? But I was really curious about something I read, so I wanted to try an experiment. [more inside]

I Heard it Through the Grapevine

Another live recording of a Motown tune. This time I'm not doing the lead vocals, but the backing vocals are me (and one of the guitarists), and so is the vocal impro bit in the middle. I also had a hand in the arrangement. [more inside]

Eyeless (Slipknot cover)

This is what Slipknot would sound like if they were only one guy in his bedroom and didn't yell so much.

We are gonna be friends (White Stripes Cover)

I was just having fun playing that cute White Stripes classic while messing around with Garageband effects I didn't realize existed, but I enjoyed what came out so I thought I'd post it.

My Train is Coming

One of my contributions to an XTC tribute album project from 2001. The song, written by Andy Partridge, was taken from a rough demo floating around on bootleg cassettes, but never actually released by XTC. [more inside]

People Got to Be Free

Kite

My wife and I recorded this tonight. It's originally by Copeland. We were particularly happy with the result, so I thought I'd share.

Heart of Glass

Good Enough

Another cover song (you seem to respond better to those, anyway :P ), this time something as unoriginal as Evanescence (I know, all the emo kids are doing it...) Yet again, a recording from my vocal exam last week. [more inside]

Na Na, Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye) [Steam cover]

If, at a meetup, bondcliff hadn't pointed out this month's music challenge to me, I might have covered this song eventually anyway.
But since it's this month's challenge, and since bondcliff and I were born on the same day/month/year (same city and same first and middle name, too), I decided, hey, why not do a nutty, rushed job on it instead so that it actually means something. [more inside]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face (Roberta Flack cover)

umbú and I were born pretty close to each other, since this song was also #1 on the week I was born. For some reason, I pictured my version performed by some weird mix of Geinoh Yamashirogumi and Tokyo Jihen. [more inside]

Wuthering Heights

This is an unplugged version of Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights that we recorded for a project at school. The arrangement was a joint effort, and I'm singing it. I got a terrible cold days before we were due for the studio, and thus this is not as good as it could have been. [more inside]

Dead Man's Will (Iron & Wine cover)

A cover, but unfortunately not a cover of Vogue by Madonna for the monthly challenge. This is the result of me trying to really know what I am doing with a song before I record, instead of just recording with a "I'll fix that later" approach and piling on more and more tracks. So this is one track, recorded on a USB mic in a pretty stairwell on my college's campus. I'm still stuck on the BbGCFABb tuning. I'd absolutely love any thoughts.

Memo To My Son

I love Randy Newman. Along with the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, and Cat Stevens, he was the first musician I fell in love with as a child, thanks to my parents. I've covered him once before on MeFi. Now I'm doing it again. [more inside]

You Got It (bluegrass cover)

Roy Orbison gets the lofi FourTrack treatment. This is pretty rough stuff, but has convinced me that with some care You Got It could be a fucking tremendous bluegrass number. [more inside]

Kids (MGMT cover)

Another loud, sloppy, first-takes-only FourTrack cover. One of my favorite earworms, though I should really have listened to it a few times to figure out how the verses go. [more inside]

Complicated (Avril cover)

I still don't know why exactly I just did this, but here is a deeply lo-fi cover of Avril Lavigne's Complicated, from vague memory and sight-read lyrics, on an iPhone using the Sonoma Wireworks/retronyms application FourTrack. [more inside]

Earthbound

This is a simple Rodney Crowell cover song. I have liked the song for the longest time. I did a simple version for the love of the song. My landlord did the leads and fancy parts still simple but was a fun way to spend the day.
