Take a Chance on Me

I love different cover songs, so tried to make a tragic love song out of an old Scandinavian disco song. I think maybe all ABBA songs are tragic beneath their shiny sequinned disco pants. It starts quiet, builds up and ends up quiet again.

Yup, that one.

Folsom Prison Blues

A cheesy song to cover, I know, but I did it for the old man for Christmas along with a two other country covers.

All I Want Is You

Pretty straight forward cover of that Juno song (but not that Juno song). Features Grover the banjolele, the geetar, me trying to sing high, lots of timing issues, and way too much going on in general. [more inside]

I Don't Want to be Here

Recorded back in '01 for the Chalkhills.org King For a Day XTC tribute compilation CD. Written by Andy Partridge, but never recorded by XTC. This was a one-off project, but eventually led to the formation of my XTC tribute band, and we played it live once or twice. [more inside]

I'll Stab You (for Sumru)

Dammit: Reprise

A revision of my earlier version of this cover, since I had a night to burn at school. Bigger, a bit less background noise, a little more banjo.

Going Down to Die

A Danzig cover (aahh!) I used to love the early Danzig albums back in high school. Three or four months ago I had a nice night and must have remembered the band because I woke up with this. It has since been remastered several times ( took out a lot of bass on the guitar ) and many attempts to post have been made (some nights you just can't figure out LAME). Like everything else I seem to have thrown together so far, it's one take on guitar (with vocals from that take bleeding in) and then one for vocals which were doubled. I added some shit in the left at a couple places.

Zillion (cover)

Zillion was a game for the Sega Master System. This is a song from the game (which you can see/hear here -- this song starts about 17 seconds in). I have, however, added lyrics, which are about the game's lack of a save function. With 77 tracks of tiny instruments, this song is probably my grandest musical venture yet. [more inside]

The Luckiest Guy on the Lower East Side (cover)

ORthey requested that I do a cover of "The Luckiest Guy on the Lower East Side" (by The Magnetic Fields) and so here it is. He wanted me to use autoharp and drum machine, but because I am churlish I did not in fact use either. And to add insult to injury, I didn't even sing it myself! I got my wife to do it! [more inside]

Cover of Wheat Kings by Tragically Hip. Crappy guitar work, slightly less crappy vocals.

Wheel in the Sky (bluegrass cover)

As requested by uncleozzy. I'd like to think this is a song sung by a hard-travelin' man dreaming of his girl—a girl with beautiful long black hair, and a high, soaring voice; Old Man Perry's daughter, Stephanie. [more inside]

i will (radiohead cover)

Spur-of-the-moment lo-fi live cover of the Radiohead song off Hail to the Thief, to which I added a couple of equally rough overdubs and some reverb. The guitar is out of tune and poorly played, but the vocal melody tweaks are kind of fun. [more inside]

In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

I know, I know, another Neutral Milk Hotel cover from this guy. But bear with me on this one - this was my first ever attempt at recording something. Beware of ridiculous effects, general fuzz, super cool whistilng and wild panning, especially if you are on headphones. [more inside]
