One More About Face 2

A basically complete track from a planned upcoming album (which will also include Where No One Has Gone Before), partly to get feedback and partly just to light a fire under my ass to keep working on the damn thing and maybe finish it this year. As indicated by the title, it's the second (of 3) songs planned for the album titled "One More About Face." [more inside]

Hot Mess

A jazzy/funky/noisy/weird tune written for the 60 second challenge. Just sort of stops instead of ending. [more inside]

MinnēFunk

I don't like the look of those clouds. Better bring in the funk so it doesn't get rained on. But you can leave the noise outside. [more inside]

Collard Greens

Most songs I write are about relationships and life and whatever, but this is a funk song, and it's about nothing. It has some pseudo-metaphorical lyrics that gained meaning after being put down, a direct quote from an old tennis coach I had in college, some electric piano I wish was a real and not just in my computer, some funky backing guitar by a friend of mine, a piano solo out of a wild west saloon, and then various layers of looped acoustic drums and electronic beats.

B Reel

I thought it fitting that my first Mefi Music post should be something I've never done before and is pretty well outside my usual realm of experience, so tada! This is a beat I made for a friend, but things fell through and now it's a lost soul. [more inside]

Remix Snippet

What might be the outcome of taking a rather dreamy pulse-based trance inducing track, stripping it back, adding an addictive disco electronic undertone and phasing ghost-like vocals here and there (and rather rare)…? Have a listen and then you will know :)

If You Want Me To Stay

Another jam (Sly cover) at yet another gig, circa 1994. It would have been totally forgotten and unremarked were it not for the fact that someone taped it. [more inside]

Heard and Said

I tried to imagine what Duran Duran's "Notorious" would sound like if it were originally written by Japanese funk band Zoobombs.

Something Funky

Mostly finished electro/house track that I'm working on, wouldn't mind some feedback...

Boom Chicky Boom

I've just started a new band. It's a rollicking affair, kind of a neo-primitive, New Orleans funk/blues explosion, with tuba, drums, and yours truly on diddley bow (etc) and vocal. This is the first song of the first set of our first gig, and was a completely impromptu, unrehearsed affair. These guys can read my mind, and I think it's gonna be a really fun band. Well, it's already a really fun band, actually. I do hope you enjoy it. Video here.

Lorem Ipsum

A hypothetical j-rock anime theme song using a simulated choir, simulated singer, simulated orchestra, simulated drums, but very real guitar and bass -- it is at least somewhat rooted in reality, as is the well-known passage that serves as the lyrics. [more inside]

Hopscotch

A laptop-demo of a song that I'm doing currently live solo + live with a band. This version if solo + looped, so it's one take, but I'm looking to record it for real pretty soon - so please, I beseech you for constructive criticism! Gracias!

The Happiness of Not Having to Lift Things

This is a new piece our band, Falex9, is developing. We didn't know what to do with it lyric-wise until after we finally got a permanent rehearsal room in Seattle and realized how happy we were that we didn't have to lug our gear around anymore. The song may have a slightly deeper meaning in the future as we refine the lyrics / music. Either way, it's been a fun playing it. [more inside]

One of the Perks of Being a Well-Known, Albeit Ineffective Superhero

This is the fourth (and maybe final) People Will Blink song posted on this page. This one is definitely a prog-rock tune. It's about a day in the life of a superhero who doesn't really.... do anything. But there's an epic battle at the end. [more inside]

(8-Bar Wake) Before an Irish Funeral

First song off of the new People Will Blink record. This song was written about 3 years ago and went through many transformations before it began to sound... well... listenable. When we played this song live, Azeem used a vocoder during the bridge. He forgot it in California when we recorded, so we used a clarinet, melodica, and recorder in it's place. [more inside]

The Semi-Coherent Funk

A 1 minute, 43 second ditty. This was the first thing I did when I got Garage Band 2 years ago. All the drum loops are stock, and I'm riffing on bass & "lead" bass. I improvised over the groove until I got something I liked, then looped it.

Sum Yung Punk

A little adventure into some left-field drum'n'bass. Strangely enough, when this song started out, I intended it to be a little ambient-melodic piece for my four-month old. Pretty early, though, it just screamed out for a beat...

Feed Off

Another song by my ex-band, again with me on trumpet. Mellow soul/funk.

Spacetalk

A Van Winkle side project, Kurt Kostokos on guitar and drums, and Dave Appelbaum on keyboards. Definately of an exploratory sonic nature...

FERB

FERB - 'Funky Electronic Rhythm n' Blues' is a little blues track I wrote and performed for a small class gig we did last year for the sake of putting on a show and having some random musical collaborations. I'd classify this as the first gig I ever did but fortunately I had some incredibly talented guys in the band to make me sound good!

Drift Thing

This is the title track of my band, Themasses, new CD. It was originally an instrumental but had lyrics and melody added by singer extrordinaire Sherry St. Germain during the recording process. It was produced by Ben Kaplan and Themasses and recorded at The Farm Studio in Gibsons BC, Canada. Enjoy!

Hillbilly Disco

This is just an improv jam from a rehearsal with my old band. It's a little bit funky, a little jazzy. Overall it's just a really fun groove IMO. The recording quality is not the greatest but it's not too bad. It features me on drums, my buddy Dan on guitar and another guy named Jonathan on keys. Enjoy.
