I got an urge to do a slower, gospel inspired cover of this song written by Nick Lowe (probably best known for the version popularized by Elvis Costello) and my friend helped me make it happen today in a quick fit of studio fun.
A new (very early) rough mix from a chamber pop project I'm doing called "Wishing Well Divers." It's sung from the perspective of Truth personified as a stalker patiently pursuing a corrupt business man. It features cello, piano, acoustic guitar, and an early, rough vocal cut (there are some changes still coming to the vocals, and the guitars will get a boost in the mix ). At any rate, it's a glimpse of where this is going. I welcome any (gentle) feedback. Lyrics below the fold. [more inside]
A sad/angry song about the place where all the things we'd rather forget end up. Inspired by MeFi politics filter, where I was first introduced to the concept of "the memory hole," which in turn gave rise to this song. (This is a redux post after I accidentally posted an old mix before.) [more inside]
The first protest song I've ever felt compelled to write for my band Pocket Novel Mystery. This is a rough draft, but we'll probably use this one on our next full-length, in one form or another.
