Movie Credits instrumental

Kind of an eerie repetitive theme that I think sounds like it could be heard at the end of some kinda spooky, horror, thriller'ish type of movie i started with one little riff i made and copied and tweaked it over 5 or 6 tracks

Last Girl

Here's to Lon Chaney. Because Bela Lugosi already has a song, and I thought it was high time for a tribute to the man who would've been Dracula, if not for lung cancer. [more inside]

My Granny's House Was Scary

3/4 of the way through my Tom Waits impression, I realized I could play the riff from Black Sabbath's "Black Sabbath" over the top.

Don't Play Cards With Satan (D.Johnston)

Took a look at this month's challenge themes and thought: Tom Waits does a much better Tom Waits impersonation than I could ever muster, and I'm just not a 'lots of notes' kinda guy. But, "spooky"... there you go! Submitted for your listening pleasure, my version of this Daniel Johnston song. With lines like "I saw my own heart laying, black with blood", I guess you could say it's pretty damn spooky. Here's a very powerful clip of Johnston performing the song on organ. [more inside]

unfolding

My take on mid 70s Michael Stearns from Planetary Unfolding, with a dash of Kubrick ala 2001. It's dark, brooding space music. [more inside]

Elfrita The Landlord

Elfrita used to be my landlord. She would place giant spiders outside my door so they could crawl into my apartment. It was horrifying.

Oh Death

Here's my version of this most haunting of American folk songs. It's very stripped-down: just voice, drone, a bass drum and a shekere. In the time-honored folk tradition, I've made a few minor lyrics changes here and there, and the melody I'm using is different from the Dock Boggs or Stanley Brothers versions of the tune. Anyway, it's one of my very favorite traditional songs. Hope you enjoy.

Back He Flew Away

Inspired by the Gullah singers of the Georgia Sea Islands, with their marvelous a capella style. My friends and I sat in a half circle in my living room and as each singer took a turn leaning in to sing the lead, the others all around filled all the little spaces with harmonies.
