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]

You Can't Ignore My Techno

Shortish instrumental, born out of me dicking around in Garage Band and trying to break out of my indie-rock rut.

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.

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

Cover of the Ewan McColl classic, at the original speed for once. So I know covering a classic like this is pretty dumb -- how you gonna compete with Johnny Cash, Peggy Seeger and Roberta Flack? But I was really curious about something I read, so I wanted to try an experiment. [more inside]

Eyeless (Slipknot cover)

This is what Slipknot would sound like if they were only one guy in his bedroom and didn't yell so much.

Back on my Back Again

Another slice of 1995 Big Star/Television influenced indie ephemera from my 4-track cassette box. I still really love this guitar riff and the herky jerky power pop stuff at the end of the chorus. A song about not wanting someone to feel bad for dumping you. When I first heard Sloan, I thought 'man, they stole my sound' although really we both stole Velvet Crush's. [more inside]

Hey Google, My Town's in the Lake

For the last two months, people trying to look up Randolph Vermont on Google Maps have been directed to a dot in the middle of Lake Champlain, 100 miles from the town's actual location. I've tried pretty much everything to get them to fix it [sad details]. Now I'm trying this. [more inside]

Seventeen Below (Electric Version)

Someone suggested I re-record this with a heavier treatment. So I threw the kitchen sink at it. Guitars, guitars, more guitars, a cello section, some HEAVY guitars, harmonies and a bonus weather forecast. Don't let the quiet beginning fool you. [more inside]

Darker Shade of Blue (Electric version)

Amped up version of a song I posted a few days ago. Gnarly guitars, Hammond organ, sweet harmonies, in a Television / Big Star / Matthew Sweet frame of mind. [more inside]

Where you gonna get your good things now?

One of my favorite chord progressions ever. A demo from about 1995 for a notional solo album, and for once I sound like I'm actually worked up about something, which I was. [more inside]

Memo To My Son

I love Randy Newman. Along with the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, and Cat Stevens, he was the first musician I fell in love with as a child, thanks to my parents. I've covered him once before on MeFi. Now I'm doing it again. [more inside]

a perfect preservative (big ghost version)

Big Ghost's version of this, which gets nice and jam-bandy, we feel. Thanks in advance for continuing mixing/mastering advice. [more inside]

Fall In Silence

Sort of an odd tune, relying primarily on one chord. The lyrics actually mean something but that might not be very obvious. Features my dad on alto sax. [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]

April 23

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

Apart

I can't tell if the glass is half full or half empty on this song. But that's ok. Ambiguity is all right. [more inside]

This is an angry, broody, dark, but pretty song. I'm proud of it, I think it's one of my best! Includes a pretty sweet xaphoon (!) solo by yours truly, plus background vocals by my wife. [more inside]

Six is where you take the three and make it two times

I was alone. It was late at night. March was approaching its end and I had to sing a song about the multiplication table. I had no lyrics. I recorded some guitars and then pressed record on the vocals to see what would happen. [more inside]

her name is hope

I wrote this after attending a concert late last year. Just finished (?) the recording. It's kind of a tribute to the musician I saw -- maybe you can guess who it is? Either way, it's a track that features guitars, pianos, fretless bass, vibes, drums, vocals and a lap steel part in the chorus that I'm really satisfied with. [more inside]
