Tie in the Lines

A quick song after a very long day, and the first song to end up in the pristine new pages of my new notebook.

April 23

A rendering of a theme, to start thinking about what it could be in a song. Kind of happy.

My Sister the Giant

I'm doing an album this month, and this is the first thing I've recorded for it. I think the album will be mostly or completely instrumental, but we'll see. [more inside]

Architect

Another song off of my EP. It's usually the last song we played at shows, and the longest and loudest. [more inside]

Youth

New song, kind of a spur of the moment thing. I think this is pop, and that's cool with me.

Why

Came up with this song yesterday, and I sort of like it. A departure. [more inside]

Sift

Kind of a break from recording and re-recording songs to be played live this year, this is kind of a folksy, reverb and acoustic-heavy, simple and short composition. Harmonizing my vocals is such a bummer lately, since it reveals how limited one's range is... [more inside]

Horn

A new version of a song I came up with this year. This is a lot like how it will sound live. Hopefully it'll get even funkier. (disclaimer: used to be called "The Porn Song")

Intro (version)

A new version of a song I had a couple of months ago. Kind of an OCD version.

cc'ed

Another acoustic, instrumental tune. This is the first track I've made in GarageBand (my Ubuntu machine died hard last week).

Go Home Metronome

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!

b

This is the reaction to my constant enthusiasm about music theory: I strung up my first guitar, a 3/4 size steel-string classical, with a mismatch of electric guitar strings, and tuned it BF#BBBD#. Then just played whatever. It made for an entertaining spring break and a kind of 'endearing' song.

Chester

This is the intro to a song my band has played live a few times. Live, I do it with loops, although it's not quite this developed. This is another Pro Tools experiment, thanks to the wonderful Swem Library Media Center.

Hopeful Hopeful

A big ol' composition kind of song. Just a little bit like "post-rock" I guess. As before but this time with multiple takes, stereo, and fun little stuff scattered all around. It's also my first project using Logic Pro, which seems to rock

Three

Based off of 'Diagram' - which, I think, I've posted. Sort of a different structure. First time I've used distortion for a while. The second half is for delay pedal enthusiasts.

80x80

A song that sort of reminded me of the 80s but really isn't very 80s. Again, just an idea, not a whole production. Please, any criticism or suggestions are totally welcome. Thanks!

Chordish Song

Another song I've recorded this summer, guitar, voice, phrase sampler (you can hear the click triggering the chorus here). As always, critique, etc - I'm totally open to suggestions and ideas as far as where (and whether) to develop these ideas

Hopeful Hopeful

It's my usual setup - bedroom recording, loop pedal + Telecaster. This is my more recent sort of loop song, and it has more of a jazzy feel. I run the Tele through a compressor before the loop, too. Yeah, this one's a little long, but I just really, really like it. I recorded it a few minutes ago and was just so happy with how it turned out (I had no idea what it would be) that I'm done for tonight.

Chivalry

The second recording of my first visit to my school's media center. It's a song idea that I've been toying with for a long, long time. It's in 7/4... if you like that sort of thing.

Trucker's Lullabye

The title pretty much sums this one up. Recorded at 2am or so with my lovely tele.

Class

Unusual music, make with a ukulele, acoustic guitar, and bass, in one shot. Using a MagicStomp as a (very rudimentary) phrase sampler, and Audacity to record. Enjoy
