Pulling Teeth

Another song in the 'I'm trying my hand at writing and recording rock music single-handedly in my bedroom' project. Looking for criticism, suggestions, tips, etc. - on mixing especially. [more inside]

My Money's Worth In Blood

So, I've been experimenting with writing and recording pop music - currently in my bedroom with garageband. I'm an amateur. I may have gotten a little effect happy on this one. But hey, it's a start. [more inside]

A Very Difficult Etude for Two Instruments

Another older piece I composed, in 2006. It uses a sort of minimalist, pseudo-metric modulation that, even though the tempo stays the same throughout, creates a kind of time-warpy impression. [more inside]

Outspeak

I thought I'd throw a few older compositions up here for fun. This is a short piano trio I composed in 2004. Lots of extended techniques and other academic foolery. But it still rocks a little, when it does.

Facebook Profile

Although not strictly part of this month's challenge, I would like to point out that this song, which deals with how our social media lives on after we die, is heavily inspired by "Waiting for My Man." [more inside]

Give Up On Us

Folksie fun-times with my band, Borachio. (I'm on drums.) We did this in my guest room, separately, so it's only so decent, but hopefully you'll see what we're going for.

Exotic Newcastle Disease

This is a new track by my band, Royal Quiet Deluxe -- I play an amplified typewriter for percussion, Tim plays guitar, and two chickens vocalize and play keys. Also, a phone recording of a PSA about Exotic Newcastle Disease in Southern California is mixed in along with crickets, locusts, and other summer sounds in the Virginia mountains. [more inside]

Sparks

This song liberally samples a song by Beri Saharof by the same name. What you never heard of Beri Saharof? Check him out, he's pretty good, sings mostly in hebrew, what with him being israeli. I discovered his music in an excellent movie called Saint Clara, good luck finding that one! This one sounds especially good in a car once the bass line kicks in.

Out of Gas

Probably my best song on my new album "Objects in Space". One of the few songs I've ever sung on. Excellent turntable work by E_B_A. You can download this, and any of my music at my website popamericana.com/76.

Say U.N.C.L.E.

It's a cover, but not exactly. I was too lazy to figure out the whole song, so I just took the basic hook and had some fun with it. First time working in Reason.

Hopscotch

A laptop-demo of a song that I'm doing currently live solo + live with a band. This version if solo + looped, so it's one take, but I'm looking to record it for real pretty soon - so please, I beseech you for constructive criticism! Gracias!

The Chestnut Tree Cafe Lounge

The guitar player, Sken, and I have been working on this and a few other pieces in my garage without the benefit of a drummer for a little while. Although this is far from complete, after finally adding the much needed drummer, I'm too excited not to upload it. Here we, Fralex9, are practicing at "Studio A" in Seattle with Christa Kae on drums.

Cupcake, When You Have a Chance

This month's themes (cupcake, brisk, interstitials) didn't exactly turn the inspiration amplifier up to 11, but, goddammit, I ain't one to run away from a challenge, no sirree. I rolled up my sleeves and got to work. So this one goes out to you, my little cupcake. You know who you are. [more inside]

King of Flesh and Bone

The first mostly completed track in a larger project my wife Lori and I are working on under the name Tangemeenie, called "The Gilded Age." It's obliquely about the romantic (and so often foolhardy) impulse to knock down giants just to watch them fall. Lyrics inside. [more inside]

Man of Very Few Words

Well, it's a few days late for the November '07 MeFi Music Challenge, but my on-the-fritz computer spent most of the month in the repair shop, plus the dog ate my homework, but better late than never, I reckon. So this one's going under the veryfewwords tag, as if the song title didn't give that away. [more inside]

Don't Play Cards With Satan (D.Johnston)

Took a look at this month's challenge themes and thought: Tom Waits does a much better Tom Waits impersonation than I could ever muster, and I'm just not a 'lots of notes' kinda guy. But, "spooky"... there you go! Submitted for your listening pleasure, my version of this Daniel Johnston song. With lines like "I saw my own heart laying, black with blood", I guess you could say it's pretty damn spooky. Here's a very powerful clip of Johnston performing the song on organ. [more inside]
