The US National Anthem

Hey, the old one is clunky, hard to sing, and it's all about bombs and war and stuff. I wrote a better one. [more inside]

Never Took a Dollar from a Dead Man

This is S&H, from a show we did just the other night here in Tokyo. I'm so digging working with percussionist Habu Hiroshi, he's really bringing the groove. Video here.

Lines

I wrote the music for this last summer, and I eventually intend to re-record it with lyrics once I finish them but for now I'm putting it up here as an instrumental and looking for feedback from the MeFi community.

Your Ball and Chain

This was a sort-of-answer to a question I asked myself: what would an Adele song for a guy sound like? I guess the answer is, Al Green, kinda. My favorite thing about it is the chord progression, especially the I7-vii7-III-ii7-v7 (Fmaj7-Em7-A7-Gm7-Bbm7) at the beginning. I tried backing vocals but couldn't really make them work.

Annie Took the Money

Last of the tunes recorded earlier this month in a little house in the mountains. Vocal and stick dulcimer. A very prolific songbird who was just outside can be heard throughout this performance. Video here.

Real To Reels -Tribute to John Lennon

I wrote this on December 8th, 1980 right after I heard about John Lennon's murder. I was in college, in Albuquerque N.M., and was so upset I had to take a cold shower to calm down. I wrote it in the shower, and wrote it down when I dried off. We've played it in various bands ever since, and this version was recorded in Chicago in 1995. [more inside]

Gone Gone Gone

For the April "two chords" Challenge. The two 3-note chords even share a note in common, so we're talking a total of five notes serving as harmonic accompaniment for this song. Played on the strumstick. There's a hoop drum, too, of indeterminate pitch. I posted a lo-fi, live version of this song to YouTube as well, direct from my 6-mat tatami room at home. You can see it here.

Mnemosyne (It's autumn in the country I remember...)

A tango-influenced setting of a hundred year-old poem by Trumbull Stickney, "Mnemosyne" is the title track of our new CD, recorded by Ljova and the Kontraband (music by Ljova, sung by Inna). Mnemosyne is the Greek goddess of memory, and this is a song of nostalgy and of memories that turn color like autumn leaves yearning for rebirth with a vibrant song in the spring.... We've long been looking forward to sharing this song with you all. [more inside]

I said Id write your song

Most people who write some of their stuff are inspired by the break up part of their relationships. This song is about a women I onced loved who asked me when do I get my song. After hearing other songs about past relationships. Most women inspire only one song in my lifes tails. She on the other hand has become the focus of the her that I speak of in so many songs. Only thing is she doesnt ever get to hear these songs. She has moved on and is happy with someone else. I also have moved on but Im just happy alone I guess. The beginning of the song was meant to sound some what of the begining of The End by the Doors as I remember setting the stage. I still write mostly of her to this day even though Im over her. Listen

A new version of a song I came up with this year. This is a lot like how it will sound live. Hopefully it'll get even funkier. (disclaimer: used to be called "The Porn Song")

The Band Will Play a Melody

Part of my Old Songs project of making lo-fi recordings of songs I wrote many years, and, sometimes, decades ago. I have come to the inexorable conclusion that in the years between 1996 and 2000, I was either quite depressed, or unexpectedly skilled at feigning it in song [more inside]

This is sort of the summer culmination of a song that me and some of my friends have built up. This version is solo (all of the extra 'tracks' are live loops) Oh, and critique the hell out of it!
