insecure

Made in the Multitrack app by harmonicdog. I'm sorry about the wonky levels and general noisiness; I'm still learning how it works.

John & Tanya - Werewolf Night

This is from our JUST released album, The Story Is Everything. We're trying to beat a crazy deadline and sell 17 CDs before the end of the day tomorrow (Thursday, May 17). If we do it, we can bring physical discs to the Kerrville Folk Festival next weekend. Here's the link, should you happen to feel generous. Thanks for listening!

Such Great Heights (cover)

I've always had a soft spot for this Postal Service song, so here's an acoustic cover featuring resonator guitar, pump organ, and ten copies of me. Lighters out for the last chorus, please.

More Than Anything

Experimenting with layering chords together in this short folky uke/guitar song. Also hoping the vocals blend well with the feel of this one. [more inside]

Ain't Too Proud to Beg

It's Valentine's Day, and I wanted to do a song about fighting against heartbreak. Naturally, I could not resist The Temptations. [more inside]

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]

Can the Hive Mind help me with this riff?

I wrote this simple little Mellotron piano chord progression this morning but it's baffling me. Can anyone suggest how I get it to loop back around to the beginning again? [more inside]

Simple Town (Full Version)

Feisty powerpop version of the a capella song I posted for the challenge. Man, this was another freakin' difficult song to mix, not least because it was the first one I did on my Yamaha HS50m monitors which Chococat recommended.You know when you go to the bathroom in the middle of the night in a hotel and accidentally turn on the overhead fluorescents and catch yourself stark naked in the most unflattering, pore-revealing detail and sort of gasp in horror? These speakers are like that. You fight them every inch of the way, not trying to get the song sounding good, but just to stop it sound so goddamn bad. [more inside]

Summer's Calling

This is the second of two summersongs... this one is my attempt to shake off the summertime blues and write something genuinely hopeful, complete with a spoken intro and healthy helpings of cheese and bubblegum all round. [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]

Walkabout (Atlas Sound cover)

In which I decide to stop candy butt-ing around it, and attempt to join the reverb drenched, echo cave sound of today. This doesn't really sound like anything I've done before, so I'd love to hear a couple reactions. [more inside]

My contribution to the two-chord challenge. A sleepy little song with fingerpickin' guitar, piano, and some three part "harmony." I experiment a little more with my voice on this one. [more inside]
