Tough Love Black Eye

Punk, metal, jazz, slack, folk and noise. This pretty much typifies the grab bag that was my band, Big Ghost. Like trying to get Pavement and RHCP to agree on California rock. It's a mess, but it was our kinda mess. [more inside]

my idea 21

Quick song recorded this morning on Music Memo with (automatically added) bass and drums, and some synthesizers and (fair warning) voice-cracking singing. [more inside]

Men's Retreat

New recording of an old song with the following Garageband synths: "hip hop kit", "pop flute" and "shimmering harpsichord" (IIRC). Song about good friends who have, by now, all moved away. I'd love any thoughts on this. [more inside]

Made In The Image

New and much improved mix of a song from a few years ago. Kinda rock-metal-electronic fun with a pretty good helping of vocal harmonies. Critique away!

Beautiful Bidet

A short song about the positive and then the negative male relationships in my life. Features classical guitar, reverbed out bowed banjo, auto-tuning, synth, french doors slamming. This is the latest in a string of versions of this song, having trouble finishing it. [more inside]

a strange and mysterious adventure

This instrumental track was originally named "Em wrong" because it came out of absentmindedly playing my guitar while watching tv and accidentally strumming an E minor chord incorrectly on the 3rd fret. The resulting song has an uneasy, mysterious vibe. [more inside]

Spacetime

A little progish - lots of analog synth, lots of interesting sounds, harmonies, counterpoint, a little odd meter, hopefully pretty catchy chorus, and one of the more obscure lyrics I've written (lyrics inside)... lots of stuff! [more inside]

Bring the Chase

Guitar and synth rock, with a certain whiff of the 70s about it, and a comparatively laid back chorus that I'm pretty happy with. Lyrics inside. [more inside]

Millimeters of Mercury (featuring Lanthanide Contraction) — Bulletproof Breakbeat

Amen Break + Synthesizer-Playing Chemistry Major + Guitar-Playing Chemistry Major = We blow roofs off shows like supercritical reactions blew the top off Chernobyl.

A Number Another Summer

Instrumental demo written/recorded as first-takes after reading this post about the recording of The Cure's Disintegration album. Consider it a comment for the Disintegration post. And please excuse the mix, as it was hastily done. In keeping with the Disintegration theme, it begins with 8 seconds of silence.

Olive Fields

I got the idea for this tune while driving through the farmlands of Northern California. Introspective and calming.

Frog versus Toad (Are Part Of A Zombie Bot Army From The Future)

Two chords: Em and G. But don't worry. You're not part of the Zombie Bot Army. Because Frog and Toad are. And they're staying up all night drinking and having snacks at a bar with PB. [more inside]

There Is No

I don't even know what genre this would be considered. This started as three guitar tracks recorded for a very upbeat techno/house track with a beautiful female vocal. When it ultimately was not used for that song, I took the three guitars and built this slow groove thing around them. [more inside]

23rd Century

Here's a track from my album about wanting to be a robot. I figure lots of you folks can probably relate. My band is currently touring the east coast, with dates in VA, NC, WV, MD, PA, NJ, NY, CT, and VT. Details inside!

Glow

I made this song last summer (2006). It has the usual synth and drum machine, as well as the addition of a little guitar. Very fast-paced, yet relaxed. Oh, and, of course, it'll someday (maybe) have lyrics.

Montage

an overwhelmingly ambient texture, pierced with many elements of various density - scraped percussion, Latin and bluegrass gestures, strings, somber guitar notes and swirling electronics. Very soundtrack, very visual, particuarly for fans of Gustavo Santaolalla.

Snakey

This is a song I did in 1995 with my band Verge on the album Little Idiot. This recording is entirely the product of the studio, but we would play it live too. (We'd drag out a lot of gear that would barely function at times to do just that...) We made this recording in the basement of my loft (at the time, sigh) in Williamsburg sometime between 1993 and 1995, sequencing it on a Mac IIci computer with no sampling or digital audio though we did record onto a digital 8-track tape recorder (remember "tape"?) so the guitar solos and voice and synth and things are pretty well as they occurred.

SeaSong

Cultural Amnesia is a group that I was in during the early 80s and a quarter of a century later we are still, occasionally, doing it. SeaSong is a track we recorded in 2004. We did record some songs earlier this year, but they're not fully buffed up for release yet. There will be a vinyl record of our old stuff released later this year.
