Christmas

"Christmas," written by Florence Dore, and also recorded by Fuzzy and the Posies. It's not a Christmas song -- or if it is, it's one of the bleakest. This cover is by me and my iPad. [more inside]

White Geese

For another MFA class we were meant to come up with a creative response to Judy Grahn's poem A Woman Is Talking To Death. Also I'm trying to process changes in relationships. Two birds, one stone, and one very sore dry throat. [more inside]

Boots

A guitar, a buzzing tube amp, a me. Some clapping. From a new collection of songs called Cake Dome, written and recorded entirely in the 29 days of February, 2012. I made a video, which you can watch on Vimeo or YouTube.

The Sun Still Shines (when your heart is breaking)

A quick semi-impromptu-one-take-in-my-pajamas recording of a sad little Wilco/Elliot Smith-ish song that's been buzzing around my head. Using a crappy MXL mic which I really don't like, but was the closest to hand. [more inside]

Sadie

As autumn arrives, it always gives me a feeling of glorious sad sentimentality, almost like a chemical reaction. Whether I actually have something to feel sentimental about or not, those chilly sun-filled days create a longing like a chemical reaction. This song is that feeling for me, when you can't get back the past, but flounder to try. Guitar and vox recorded live with a single guitar overdub. [more inside]

I wrote this song about you

This song is a very hard song to discribe. Seeing that we dont really know each other I feel I can blurt out the real meaning here of this song in this forum so to speak. Its very personal song. My daughter got her self pregnant and she wasnt ready. I pleaded please have the baby we can work through this it will be ok. I thought she was going to be with me in this and my wishes. We were on good terms and our relationship was that of divorse myself in Mi and her in Tx even though I was in her life I wasnt there as much as I should have been. Anyway we talked of this and then for some reason she cut me out. I called and I called and I called my X wife, she was on the was to Dallas with no phone to get a abortion. I had no way to stop her. This was my first grandchild being ripped out of my life. It happened I cant change that. That nite I sat down in a chair and spit out these words. Its all I have let to remind me that my grand child was. They killed a part of me that day. Im in more contact and still love my daughter very very much. We all make mistakes and bad choices. Anyway I wrote this song about you where ever you may be. Maybe sitting on my lap right now and I dont even know it. My daughter has not heard this.

Let It Go or Give In

I wrote this very recently and decided to record it while it was still fresh. It still needs a lot of work instrumentally, and structurally as well. I'm thinking about working with some musician friends to spruce it up a bit. I would love feedback!

Old Man

A cover of my very favorite Randy Newman song, which is also maybe the saddest song I know.

tearjerker

Can techno music be sad and banging at the same time? I've been listening to a lot of Jurgen Paape and wanted to try my hand at the sad vocal sample techno song.
