Summer Follows Redux

Impossible Bookings is a collaboration I kinda sorta foisted upon cicadaverse, who initially posted the instrumental version of this track 6 months ago. I put words to what he'd created, we each reworked what we had into shorter form, he remixed my vocals and added to the instrumentation...then life happened to us both. We caught up recently after a few months off, remastered it, and called it good. [more inside]

savory for me

Just an experiment of guitar electronic fusion I've been playing with. I'm planning on doing an album-full of these types of songs soon.

deeply listening

Spent the last year learning to program and had no time for music. Finally got a job and a new-ish life so I thought it's time to get back to some things I enjoy. This one is different from my normal thing though I suppose I'v'e always had an attraction to analog merging with electronic. Maybe thanks to new order/joy division??? Though this doesn't sound anything like those.

Guitar instrumental. Some slide. GarageBand on the drums.

Road Race

Instrumental with big tunes and riffs, and a driving cadence that's perfect for cycling (especially if the weather should force you to ride indoors). Bandcamp download (with artwork).

B'doo Deh Du

Dance-Rock Late-70's-type Instrumental. Maybe if Thin Lizzy and the Talking Heads were commissioned to write the theme song to CHiPs? The only lyrics are "B'doo deh du" and "Bah-Bah-Bah-Bomp!" [more inside]

2 days left

I haven't written a song in a while (or it feels too long to me at least). This is just some more guitar rock with a hint of electronic programming. It fits the mood I'm in mostly. Two days lefts to go until I start my three week holiday. I've been working full-time without a vacation for about 2 1/2 years. I need a break...

based

an old improv song I did... Well the base was formulated but the guitar was improv. and the programmed drums were an after thought. Luckily I have the foresight to record everything in time.

almost time

This is a guitar-only outtake from another song I did. I was going to use it as a outro on that song but the original clocked in a 9 minute time already so it got discarded. But still, I like the feeling of it...especially as it's guitar with no other instruments ;)

native

I was really happy with this one when I first recorded it about 19 months ago. Listening to it now, I realise it was given way too much compression in the mastering phase. unfortunately I have lots the master project now with a faulty hard drive so it it what it is... [more inside]

Lawn Mower Times

Another combination of Guitar vs. Keyboards. Guitar gets the first move this time.

Battery Charger Error

recorded about 7 months back, I thought It'd be nice if Guitar and Keys could share some space and cohabitate. I sort of liked the combination of both here.

leisure for real

this is a bit of a lofi track from 2012. I looped a bass line and then jammed out to it. Then I thought, wow, if any bassist hears this, he's going so think, what a boring pass part! So for those bassist out there, I threw in a bit of a bass solo as an outro.

patience

I think this may be one of my favorite things I've done guitar-wise. I started out with a very basic chord progression and just played out as many variations of that as I could think of and then took my favorites and combined them into a simple quiet/loud dynamic. [more inside]

gr1 vs. 2

kind of unhappy with this one. A bit Grunge and couldn't work in the finesse I wanted to.

where's the exit?

Just another instrumental rock song. A few more electronic elements added in this time but overall, still very much guitar based.

disc

I went to a lot of Punk shows and listened to a lot of that type of music in my youth. I think I paid like $7 or $8 to see Greenday before they exploded on MTV. My friend's band opened for them. Likewise, NoFX, Pennywise, Bad Religion, and many others were among the bands I saw live as a teenager. I haven't really listened to a lot of those bands for a number of years but sometimes I run across a random track in my music library and it brings back all those memories. [more inside]

convolutions

I have been making too many one part songs lately so I had wanted to do something with a few different parts, you know, like a verse, a chorus, and a bridge and maybe if I'm lucky, a super-chorus... [more inside]

The long queue

I used to have to commute through rush-hour traffic. You spend a lot of time thinking or zoning out when your car is not moving very fast.

daylightsaving's eve

This is from a project I did about 2 years ago I think. I don't think it's ever seen the light of day till now. It's a bit low quality in it's mastering probably. I wanted to do an 8" with this and 3 other songs but never got around to it. [more inside]

there are other things also

I was feeling another bunch of unsettled feelings so I thought I better do another discordant, frustration-venting song. [more inside]

carefully optimistic

I thought I'd try to write something more upbeat. I couldn't think of a vocal melody so I just filled it with different guitar parts.

just a rock song (instrumental). I played around a lot with some organs and synths but still guitar based overall...

it takes a long time to become whole again....

Instrumental. This was actually a song I wrote as early as 1993. I kind of stumbled on a really terrible recording of it from back then (you would not want to hear it, believe me), and I thought why not revisit it, so I jammed out some parts on the chord progression and eventually recorded this.

crashing is not safe

I got in a car crash about a month back. No one got hurt but it was still kind of scary (I had my 13 month old in the car and she was screaming and crying) and afterwards, it was really depressing/distressing. It was really hard to get to work and I couldn't go anywhere and then there's the money I had to borrow to fix the car. [more inside]

ode to an imaginary bicycle on a grassy hill

I wrote this song night before last because I haven't written much lately. No vocals because, my vocals would only make it worse. Really. But feel free to sing your own! [more inside]

Visualization

This instrumental explores not only ambiences and walls-of-sound seemingly inspired directly by cosmic travels, but also features electronics, samples, drones, and beautifully melodies peppered with a lot of dissonance, creating sonic tapestries perfectly suited for reflecting, reading an Arthur C. Clarke (or Isaac Asimov) book and taking a journey through the stars. This is Sounds of Sputnik.

Ambiguous Sense of the Future

Post-rock always seems embedded with the sense that something is dire; however, shake it up a bit to get a kind of post-rock indie shoegaze vinaigrette and Sounds of Sputnik is likely what you would come up with. This is Ambiguous Sense of the Future.
