Spidey sense tingled. Dashed this off.

The Phone Calls - Lucky Dave

Not much to say except that it's a kind of happy long weekendy thing.

Learning web dev and reflecting on lifetimes lived long ago

I took a four week vacation, partly with the intention of recording some vocals for my many instrumental tracks. However I spent the whole holiday learning web development and getting drunk in the evenings and recalling fonder memories of times past... I only managed to record vocals one day for about 4 hours and it was almost a total loss. I only managed to get a single line down really. I wrote more lyrics but the takes for those were unusable. Well, here it is for better or worse with the single line repeating over and over on a loop... [more inside]

The Loop

After spending a few years rehearsing and making rough and ready demos, Sredni Vashtar finally made it into a real studio last month. Here's one of them - the mix is still a bit rough so it works best on headphones. [more inside]

Rid of You

I wrote and recorded this a couple of years ago. This is a remix using some new stuff in DP8. It's about a bad relationship.

Visualization

Tastefully blending several genres together, including indie or alternative rock, dreampop, space rock, psychedelia, ambient and shoegaze. Sounds of Sputnik is a project producing a sound that immediately brings several associations to the surface - like dreaming, space, flight, exploration, reflection. Worth a listen whether or not you have or have not traditionally gone in the above-mentioned genres of music. [more inside]

Slow see

A song by Bummed, a shoegaze-influenced band my friends and I have been working on. I'm on vocals! [more inside]

Back To You

Sonic Youth has been a big influence on many modern-day bands and Ummagma is definitely one of them, as is evident from one listen to "Back to You". The hazy gazey sounds here build into a kind of intentional dreamscape. [more inside]

Momma's Boy

Nice little short story song. Ten points to whoever can guess the famous dysfunctional family first! I've been trying to write this song for a year, and then it poured out of me today all at once. Could definitely use a little feedback on how it came out. [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.

guitar track

just a guitar riff I've been working on. Not sure where to take it exactly.

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.

it would take an hour...

Feeling a bit down tonight so I went looking through my projects and tried to fix up old throw away songs. This is one that's not too bad. An idea I hadn't quite fleshed out instrumentally. But why not throw on some improve vocals to make it feel more whole?

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]

Upsurd

Fusion confusion. The meshing of musical genres found in this Ummagma track represent a fusion, reflecting the confusion that is so commonplace nowadays in this world - simply absurd and rising. Hence the name Upsurd.

battle t

I was going to "throw this one away but instead I spent like 8 hours on trying to make it better and still didn't really get where I was going. It was one of those nights when I just couldn't get inspired or the magic wasn't happening. But struggling as I was, I still felt it was kind of fun and thought I'd go ahead and share. [more inside]

Another hit!...or not. I moved to the west some time ago and decided to celebrate by writing a song. [more inside]

gr1 vs. 2

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

a complicated render

I'm trying to come up with vocals for this one and really struggling tonight. I had an idea, which was to just use pitch correction. I actually kind of liked it. At the risk of sounding like kanye west, i think it helped me get the melodies from my head onto the track without me immediately deleting it. I think maybe I'll use it as a guide track to get a usable take.

Night at the beach in the dark with more vocals

I let a few people hear this before (both here and elsewhere) and they all wanted a mix with higher vocals (despite the fact that I've assured everyone the vocals were total rubbish). So I've re-mixed it and re-mastered and now you might be able to hear my voice. If you still can't understand me, I've included the very depressing lyrics below. [more inside]

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.

is it the beach at night

Another attempt at songwriting. Unfortunately the vocals were so bad I almost deleted them. Instead I just backgrounded them.

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]

Listen

Listen, a song by Sredni Vashtar. Recorded, as usual, at rehearsal. The loop drones throughout and the guitar and bass are sparse and simple.

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]

sound out collaboration

My brother who lives in northwest Florida took the time, energy and money to come out and visit me in New Zealand. He's the only member of my family who's ever taken the effort to come out an visit me in the 8 years since I moved here but unfortunately due to just bad timing and unforeseen circumstances, I couldn't give him the welcome he deserved.

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.

River Town

The themes of timelessness vs. something purely of the moment and also of mobility vs. immobility are somehow factored into the folds of this dreamy folkrock-inspired track by Ummagma. Whispy and somewhat ethereal. [more inside]

Old ship church

Another one from the afore mentioned project from a few years ago. Not quite up to my current standards but I like the energy in this one anyway.

Love That Makes Me Laugh

Cover of a Bill Withers song by my new band Third Time Lucky. Rough take from rehearsal, not properly mixed or anything. Hope you like it.

Another track from the same project as the previous one I posted.

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]

where it starts

This is one I did back in 2012. I wanted to do something more electronic but as that's not my forte, it ended up being pretty minimalist. I ended up overlaying a subtle guitar track in the end anyway...

This is obviously kind of an experiment...or in other words, it's a bit of a mess. [more inside]

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

Very hesitant to let anyone hear this one. [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.
