Need a little help. Here's a nice little cover I did with a good old friend I've been playing with since highschool. Need some help. Using a logitech usb mic which I generally like the sound/versatillity/ portability of. Trying to figure out how to cut out the high-pitched noise it comes with.
Nice little short story song. Ten points to whoever can guess the famous dysfunctional family first! I've been trying to write this song for a year, and then it poured out of me today all at once. Could definitely use a little feedback on how it came out. [more inside]
Punked up waltz about how to avoid bedbugs. Still a little iffy on how the vocals are mixed. Thoughts? [more inside]
Coming late to this great mefimusic challenge. So many I still want to cover, but here's my noir version of umbú's excellent Kitten (in my robot purse), a song that packs way more adorable and awesome into less than three minutes than should feasibly fit. Hope I'm doing it justice. [more inside]
This is the studio version of a song I posted a while back. With video! Shot in an abandoned school house. Fun times. [more inside]
Thank y'all for 7 fun years. Here's a new tune I wrote for my band Big Ghost called Great Spirit (get it? get it?) Enjoy! [more inside]
A song written by my brother, who recently came home from a two year Senegal Peace Corp stint. To paraphrase his contention: "If you want to catch up, put your phone down and take your pants off." [more inside]
A little tune about some teenage girls I know who could easily kick my ass. I've been working on a session of drum tracks I had my brother do before going into the peace corp for two years, and this is the first song nearing completion. Still getting used to working with real drum tracks. Any pointers and criticism would be great! [more inside]
Snazzy tune by my buddy Pat with a baddass, rocket-ship-style ending. Looking for feedback on the mix, as I'm using a new DAW. Thanks. [more inside]
bouncy, hyperbolic night-out song, wherein I muse on the merits of Jack Daniels as it pertains to dental hygiene. (not really) [more inside]
My band's rendition of this tune, which I posted a while back. It was fun condensing the 9 track arrangement down for a three-piece. Worth the long intro. [more inside]
ecstatic punk_metal love song with stereo distorted bass, country inflected vocals, and a few stolen lyrics. Kinda a follow up to this song. [more inside]

Big Ghost's version of this, which gets nice and jam-bandy, we feel. Thanks in advance for continuing mixing/mastering advice. [more inside]
Haunted punk from my band Big Ghost. This is my second attempt at recording drums (thanks for all the advice, Mefites!) and my first post that all the band worked on together. so pointers are very welcome. [more inside]
old/well-loved song. been meaning to throw this up for a while. jazzy ditty about the internetty world. needs a competent brass bit if anyone's interested. [more inside]
Tight lil pop diddy about the time my little brother disappeared on New Years day and turned up two months later in the Dominican Republic. This is the first full song I've done on my new computer, which makes me wicked happy. [more inside]
Little ditty about young love, the joys of suburban Massachusetts in autumn, and the allure of all those wonderful things behind the counter at drugstores. [more inside]
Ever get drunk and watch daytime tv and then get kinda pissed off? This is an oldy, but I've been playing it with my band lately, so I revamped it and remixed it. [more inside]
last minute valentine's day song for all those lovers and fighters out there.
Post-traumatic stress syndrome is a bitch. Pre-traumatic stress syndrome? Well, that can just wreak havoc on your marriage. Let's just hope this song is a relic from those bad old '08 days. (It's proggy-punk-grunge, if you're looking fer a genre) [more inside]
hey home recording kids: i'm trying to get this song ready for my lady's birthday. could use some help with the mix. I need advice by monday nite. going for cute. what's working / failing? what needs polish? [more inside]
Kinda country plus the Cure. the song's about Einstein and Uri Geller and serotonin re-uptake inhibitors, and the shady little place they all meet. [more inside]
I pretty li'l ditty about jelly, pirates, and (of course) true love. still getting my bearings as far as recording in my new apartment. two guits and a glockenspiel for the win? [more inside]
I've posted this song here previously, but I wanted to share the video I made for it with the help of my lovely and talented assistant Jacob Guza. Hope you enjoy. NSFW lyrics/youtube [more inside]
Nedroid's unofficial theme-song (with official, Nedroid-penned lyrics!) About five years ago (in the early stage of my mefi lurking) my good buddy, TheMadJuggler asked me to throw together a little tune for his net-buddy, Nedroid. Here's a pretty faithful version of the song I came up with. I post this as the last song recorded in my shitty little Haverhill apartment, as a fan/love letter to a fine cartoonist. [more inside]
I'm a piece of hell, burning like a champ. I'm in love with you. I don't know exactly what you're supposed to do about it. (it's a touch noisy) [more inside]
Quick little ditty about the joy of watching shitty bands in Northampton. Still not sure how I feel about this one. Little help? [more inside]
This is a song i've been trying to put together for a year or two now. It uses my usual punk + x formula, where here, x = rawhide. The second half is big, noisy, and was tons of fun to make. I"m kinda fond of the lyrics Hope you enjoy. lyrics inside [more inside]
So I went for the triumvirate: it's a spooky song with overwrought instrumentation and Tom Waits style vocals. Hope you enjoy. [more inside]
written and recorded very quickly: a couple of childhood experiences made into a little parable set. hope you enjoy. it's fun as hell to sing. [more inside]
sassy little song featuring my new glockenspiel. [more inside]
little song i wrote while walking to work. lyrics inside.
jaunty little ditty about poor ol' jim, cuckolded soon after moving to boston with his finance. not entirely sure where this came from except that i'm very very very often lost in boston. usual stuff: buzz guitars, fake drums, computer blips and me shrieking like a dolt. enjoy!
This is much more the style I usually work in. Poppy, punky, and fuzzy. Maybe it's just because of the low grade equipment I use, but my songs always turn into big saturated buzz-fests. At least with this one, it was no accident. As usual, recorded by myself with guitars and robots. Hope you enjoy. Lyrics inside.
