Shot Of You

Lama by @Ummagma

Two of my favourite bands in the world are Stereolab and Cocteau Twins and another band whose music I find greatly inspiring is Pink Floyd. This song is a pure project of this triangular love for these three bands. Enjoy!

Men's Retreat

New recording of an old song with the following Garageband synths: "hip hop kit", "pop flute" and "shimmering harpsichord" (IIRC). Song about good friends who have, by now, all moved away. I'd love any thoughts on this. [more inside]

There's a saying that aging is like sailing into an asteroid field, where the asteroids get thicker and thicker until one hits you. This is a song about that. One take everything. Video.

Sad Enough

My friends and I have been playing together for a few years, we get a couple shows each year here in minneapolis. We recorded a few of the new songs, this one is a straight ahead pop song

Do You Feel?

Original Power Pop from Austin. Buzzie is an old band name, but with new membership. The current lineup spent 4 hours in the garage cutting demos 2 weeks ago - this is a rough mix of the live tracks. [more inside]

River Town

Where does one genre begin and another one stop? I'm asking myself the very same question every time I hear that this song is indie or pop rock or folk rock or dream pop. Well, whatever one calls it, I hope you enjoy this. [more inside]

A mix of cultures often results in something beautiful - interesting art, world views, beautiful babies and intriguing music. And you don't have to be from either of those cultures to appreciate how wonderful this can be. This song represents a melange of two cultural infusions - from Canada and Ukraine. This is Ummagma. Enjoy. [more inside]

Safe and Sound [Capital Cities cover]

Jessamyn asked me to cover this song a long time ago, and I set about it at a snails pace. It's finally done! (Sorry it took so long, darlin.) It started out in my mind as, "What if New Order or the Cure covered it?", and it turned out sounding like me covering it. I worked more over the past month to make sure it sounded the way I wanted it to, and I learned a lot about Garageband along the way. I'm kinda proud of it. And I'm glad it's over. [more inside]

The Calm Kiev

We once used to wonder what it would sound like to whip up a healthy feisty mix of dream pop and hip hop - rap and now, thanks to this tasty earbite, we have an idea. Definitely taking a walk on the dark side, underlined by both the music and vocals, this is still definitely worth the listen.

(Another) Sunny Day

This has been the worst winter in 20 years where I am. It's still snowing horizontally as I speak. So I wrote a summer song as a big middle finger to the damn cold. [more inside]

Interesting Times

Written because I am finally starting to get back into recording stuff, and I needed to give myself a simple project to stretch my muscles. So I told myself to write a Stereolab song circa 1994. I haven't listened to Stereolab for few years. Now That I've recorded this, I'm gonna go back and listen to them.

Ummagma - River Town (Mind Movies Remix)

This is one Ummagma track that has been totally turned on it's head, taking what was a dreampop folkrock-ish track and utterly transforming it into an whirling electro-dance track with traces of vocals from Shauna McLarnon. [more inside]

Almost Over

Pretty much finished version of this sketch I posted previously. Our drummer is going to put live drums in but we're still trying to figure it out... other than that it's mostly done. Sort of sits in a strange space between studio one, funky soul and white boy reggae circa 1977.

Been There (working title)

One of my first attempts at making music on a tablet (well, except for the guitars)... This is still very much a work in progress, but I kind of like how this mix is shaping up. This will eventually have vocals. Part of a bigger new project I'm working on under the tentative working title "The Big Dismal."

Beach Erosion

This is a song from my band Blackwolf Beach. We are from Baltimore, MD. I think we sound like punk/melodic hardcore/noisey stuff. There are two other mefites in this band! Josher71 plays guitar and sings sometimes, and petulantbeard plays drums and sings sometimes. I play guitar and sing sometimes. [more inside]

Straightforward classic pop. I banged it out in GarageBand yesterday. Music and lyrics by me. I also did the vocals, guitars, and bass tracks. Plenty of rough edges I know (my voice isn't great, the guitar solo should really be horns, and the drums sound a bit lifeless), but otherwise I think it came out pretty well. Back to studying for the bar exam! [more inside]

Way Back When (studio version)

Final version of the rough acoustic demo I posted a few days back. A bit of blue-eyed soul, a bit of BONNY era Prefab Sprout, a bit of TEMPTED era Squeeze and a few 10cc harmonies, and the guitar from Alison. Did I miss anything? [more inside]

While the term space rock is kicked around quite often these days, there is something else out there: space pop. This song epitomizes that term, as reflected in the title itself. Poppy, spacey and ethereal trip to the cosmos. [more inside]

Everyone I Know

Resistor celebrates springtime with a lush new single, "Everyone I Know." This hook-laden dance-pop number is seasoned with Resistor's cynical charm, pondering whether originality can exist if a person is merely a product of his environment. Of course, the existentialism lurks beneath many layers of burbling synths, glitchy drum machines, and boy-girl harmonies. [more inside]

For some of the best things in life, intensity builds as anticipation kicks in. That is what this Ummagma track is for me - with layer on layer, building a sort of icicle/sand castle that never melts or washes away. It just builds and then takes flight. I hope you will feel the same. Of course, there is that The Smiths thing happening - happy music, depressing lyrics. Rightly so. Spot on - have a read. [more inside]

Lama (Jane Woodman Remix)

This remix of the track "Lama" does not outright flip the original version on its head, though it does dress it in a murkier shade of darkgaze (darkwave). The bright dreamy element from the original version spills over into this version too, so as to not detract from the original point of this song in the first place. I hope you enjoy it. Your feedback is most welcome.

It's funny how sometimes it takes all but a few minutes to write a song, while the development of another song can really stretch out. This was one of those stretches - "Risky" was a song that was written "in chunks" - the basic instrumental bit was written in Kyiv, Ukraine before a big move to western Ukraine and then to Canada, where the rest was written & recorded before finally being dragged back to Ukraine, where it was properly mixed and mastered. The time span from start to finish: 5 years. All that moving around was us, by the way, not just the tracks bouncing around in cyber space. Thus is the history of this track. I'm posting the lyrics too if anyone wants to have a go at them or "sing along" …. yeah, right… any feedback is welcome. Peace. [more inside]

mmHg — Reckless

So I have another instrumental piece of pop to share with everyone. This one has lyrics but I don't like the way my vocals sound with it. It basically expresses remorse for a Wet Reckless (reduced DUI) in a roundabout way all while using a 1-5-6-4 progression that avoids total cliché by way of a treble synth playing altered tones and keeping it fresh.
