A little improv song, testing out some of my new gear. Vaguely inspired by Bill Withers. [more inside]

True love will find you in the end

Cover of the oft-covered song by the un-coverable Daniel Johnston. Main track recorded in my dorm bathroom in the winter of 2009 by drumming a banjolele with a pencil.

I Can Dream, Can't I?

Made famous by The Andrews Sisters in 1949, here I use a beautifully understated jazz guitar version by Pizzarelli and Vignola as backing. It's been a long while since I recorded something to post, so I hope you enjoy it!

Auld Lang Syne, ragtime fingerstyle arrangement

It's been five years since my last attempt at arranging Auld Lang Syne. I thought I might try to start a small fire under it this year. [more inside]

What's Not Being Said

Instrumental. We used electric and nylon guitars, glockenspiel, electric bass, and a drum set [played by 2 guitarists, so don't judge]. Criticism [aside from the drums] welcome. [more inside]

Medford Grrls

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]

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah

A ragtime arrangement of one of the most ear-wormy, riffiest songs I know. [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]

Out Up and Thru

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]

Voytek the Soldier Bear

Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies - "July"

"July" is the promo single from the upcoming Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies EP. "July" is the feel-good song of the month, if not the century. "July" is a tale of love, summertime, and ephemeral youth, told in the timeless language of pop music. [more inside]

My Girl's Blues

A little rough, a little raw. Just a little old-time blues instrumental.

Rock, Paper, Scissors (the single mix)

Shorter, sweeter mix of this responding to some of the suggestions on the last one. Lost the first intro, cleaned up the drums, changed the harmonies slightly, brought up the melody guitars, and dropped in a blazing little guitar solo, even if I do say so myself! It's under three minutes now -- give it a listen! Now just have to figure out the B-side...

Myself and Peterkins getting mellow on a Sunday afternoon. All acoustic, guitar and double bass, with added percussiveness from Peterkins.

Ode To An Invisible Orange

Is this Metal? Inspired by this MeFi post about Metal and this MeFi post about Metal as a catalyst for world peace, I set out to write and record this instrumental over the weekend. Rough edges are OK in Metal, right? You should probably turn this up as loud as it will go.

Steam Stove

This is a song from the batch I recorded when I recorded Cold Dip and It Could Always Be Early. It has an absolutely ludicrous number of tracks for a song that has nothing but guitars and harmony, and I feel the need to just release it and see how others react to it. [more inside]

Riptide

A silly pop song that I wrote for my band Boeufcake. We've been playing together for years, but we have few recordings worthy of sharing due to the tediousness of multitracking and the shit kicking good time we'd rather have drinking beer and playing loud. Be aware, there's a couple naughty words in this song. [more inside]
