Miss America (Q Hut mix)

The same song I posted a couple of weeks ago, but this time with live everything, including Hammond, drums, and Rhodes. No sims or samples involved... all recorded in the (very reverberant) Quonset hut. Mostly done as an exercise, turned out to be interesting I think. [more inside]

If I Could Just Pull It Off

This little number rhymes "burning bush" with "tush". Also "Otis Redding" with "bedding" and "wedding". And "golden ladder" with "pancake batter". Plus, so much more. You are urged to listen. Video and lyrics here.

Soon As the Rain Lets Up

From the latest BIG SYSTEM gig. Mostly drumming going on here (WaveDrum and talking drum), but the one verse I broke into (never got around to the next one) is from an old song of mine (someone uploaded it to YT here), and that was enough to give this one a title. Video at YouTube or Vimeo.

i put down the phone / left a bag of cookies on the corner / filled my brain with a soft white light / sent all my 8-track tapes / to my cousin down in mississippi / took my foot off the pedal, and gave up the fight... A brand new song, live in Tokyo, May 1, 2011. Video here.
