Ambiguous Sense of the Future

Powerful swirling and driving full sonic force, enveloped in a mishmash of postrock, shoegaze, and noise rock. [more inside]

equals66

just a rock song (instrumental). I played around a lot with some organs and synths but still guitar based overall...

simple plastics

Another day, another song. Rock, indie, alternative, etc... A bit of hit and miss.. A bit of an experimental, weird intro. I was inspired by someone I once heard trying to play the guitar with a mallet. Some keyboards and organ are thrown in underneath (probably to try to make up for the lack of verse vocals!). I Also tried to throw in a vocal idea on the chorus here (written below) [more inside]

it takes a long time to become whole again....

Instrumental. This was actually a song I wrote as early as 1993. I kind of stumbled on a really terrible recording of it from back then (you would not want to hear it, believe me), and I thought why not revisit it, so I jammed out some parts on the chord progression and eventually recorded this.

Shame

About as close as I'll ever get to writing an epic stadium rock anthem. A bit like an angry indie version of the Buzzcocks' "Ever Fallen in Love" — but less danceable. [more inside]

Libel

A decent proportion of the lyrics were sourced more or less directly from the sensationalist headlines on the covers of beauty / gossip / lifestyle magazines. Most of the other bits I nicked off Eastenders. [more inside]

christmas trees

This is an experiment. I'm not a vocalist. Yet, I had a melody in my head for this song I wrote and I can't find anyone else willing to sing so...this.

Lantern Selection

instrumental, guitar rock. I had fun writing this one a few months back.

Peanuts

Everyone else in the band always jokes that this song should be called Penis, but they're just juvenile idiots. On the other hand, it does contain the lyrics "American tits" so maybe they're right. [more inside]

World Trade Centre

A punky little indie number about opting out of consumer culture and the acceptance / celebration of violence and warfare. Also, Wargames (the film). Hope you like it! [more inside]

crashing is not safe

I got in a car crash about a month back. No one got hurt but it was still kind of scary (I had my 13 month old in the car and she was screaming and crying) and afterwards, it was really depressing/distressing. It was really hard to get to work and I couldn't go anywhere and then there's the money I had to borrow to fix the car. [more inside]

ode to an imaginary bicycle on a grassy hill

I wrote this song night before last because I haven't written much lately. No vocals because, my vocals would only make it worse. Really. But feel free to sing your own! [more inside]

Bushman

Today I learned that the Bushman from San Francisco is gone forever. I wrote him a rock song about all the times he scared me while I was growing up. RIP Bushman.

Cloud Ships

A mid-tempo piece, built around the opening drum riff. Carbon 7 is an improvisational jazz/space/rock trio that just makes it up on the spot. [more inside]

it's the same idea

Wrote and recorded this a couple of years ago. This is where I left it, a couple of notches or more away from perfect... but it's got some good things about it, including a really messed up (in a good way) guitar solo. [more inside]

you awoke like

Pretty excited about this one. This was a weird kinda experimental duet I wrote a long time ago and I'm finally starting to mess around with it for reals. It features my lovely and talented friend Pat. As per usual, I could always use some advice. Tricky stuff starts around 1:07. [more inside]

Balkanofellini

Eastern Europe has long been known as a mysterious place when it comes to music, spanning multiple genres, including music with a particular ethno-folk component. This is one of those songs. Well done Ummagma. [more inside]

Higher

This is the probably most commercial thing I've ever written -- still not sure how I feel about it -- but it was completely accidental. I just had this little 3-3-2 piano riff going and started putting a bassline under it, and the whole thing kind of fell out. I resisted it for months because it seemed so obvious but eventually gave in. Drums are 1-take 3-mics from my drummer but I think they work pretty well. The interesting thing is that the 1-bar piano riff continues through as an ostinato through the whole thing, never changing. I guess it's Coldplay's version of Marvin Gaye's SEXUAL HEALING, or something. A bit of U2 in there too somewhere in the scritch scratch guitar that comes in in the second verse. [more inside]

Christmas Eve (redhanded)

Yay pop-punk. Prequel to Chrismas and July, which I posted a few days ago. Part of a weird little vein of story song I've been working with lately. [more inside]

HF

For decades now, I have been inspired by songs that make you think beyond just a lovely melody (hopefully they'd go hand in hand together). On that note, here's a song about unwinding and placing greater value in human relations (at a time when we so greatly need this).

Theme for a non-existent war game trailer

Music for a theatrical trailer that never got made for a FPS war game. It's maybe a little over the top. Imagine lots of explosions or something.

Brain Zaps

Brain Zaps is a song by my new punk/garage band, Brain Zaps. Every band needs a song about their own name. It's the last song from our set at the Town Hall Hotel in Newtown. I'm the singer. The logo was designed by Michael Skattum.

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]

I Don't Believe in Horoscopes, but...

Blackwolf Beach is a band out of Baltimore MD and features three mefites out of its four members. Josher71, CapnSue, and Petulantbeard. Capnsue and I actually met through Mefi so it's pretty awesome to be able to put this up. This is from our first demo.

Edgar Allen Poe

Don't feel bad; Edgar Allen Poe couldn't hold his liquor either... This is the last track from my band's first foray into the studio. It's kinda a jokey throwaway tune, but we love it. More to come. [more inside]

Outside

When a band "dances" on the border between 6 or more musical genres and one of them happens to be progressive rock, the listener is often in for a delightful surprise. Hopefully this song qualifies as one of them. This is "Outside" by Ummagma. [more inside]

Human Factor

Imagine a carefree diva singing in a non-chalent way as she looks out the window of the passenger side during a road trip. The soundtrack to her ride is based on an indie rock slide-guitar laced tune, which builds in intensity throughout the ride until bang - confusion and collision. That is this Ummagma song in a nutshell, message and all. [more inside]

Visualization

This instrumental explores not only ambiences and walls-of-sound seemingly inspired directly by cosmic travels, but also features electronics, samples, drones, and beautifully melodies peppered with a lot of dissonance, creating sonic tapestries perfectly suited for reflecting, reading an Arthur C. Clarke (or Isaac Asimov) book and taking a journey through the stars. This is Sounds of Sputnik.
