Dark Patterns

This is a free internet single from the new album my wife Lori and I are working on as Tangemeenie. It was inspired by a discussion I found here on MetaFilter. Lyrics under the fold. [more inside]

Yeah Yeah

What happens when you let your seven year old son take over your home project studio for a few minutes? Turns out, you get experimental electronic fun (with help from dad). [more inside]

Been There (working title)

One of my first attempts at making music on a tablet (well, except for the guitars)... This is still very much a work in progress, but I kind of like how this mix is shaping up. This will eventually have vocals. Part of a bigger new project I'm working on under the tentative working title "The Big Dismal."

Truth's A Patient Stalker

A new (very early) rough mix from a chamber pop project I'm doing called "Wishing Well Divers." It's sung from the perspective of Truth personified as a stalker patiently pursuing a corrupt business man. It features cello, piano, acoustic guitar, and an early, rough vocal cut (there are some changes still coming to the vocals, and the guitars will get a boost in the mix ). At any rate, it's a glimpse of where this is going. I welcome any (gentle) feedback. Lyrics below the fold. [more inside]

The Undiscovered Country Song

A quiet song about looking around for all the people you've misplaced over the years. Guitar, piano, cello, recorded live using a field recorder. Vocals overdubbed later at home. Unreleased from a new Tangemeenie side-project my wife Lori will eventually also contribute vocals to, called "The Wishing Well Divers." [more inside]

Inside the Moon

A moodier, down-tempo track from Tangemeenie's 2001 debut album, "Faust," produced using cheap digital recording gear, loop-based techniques and trick lighting. (I apologize in advance for my "jolty singing style".) [more inside]

Clueless

A bitter rock song first written and recorded not long after my last band's original lineup fell apart. That band's ugly break-up (partly triggered by the failure of our band mates' marriage) coincided with both my mom's cancer recurring in terminal form and my wife's losing her job of four years because we stayed in Germany with my mom too long. So we had plenty of pent up bitterness to spare. We performed this song live as Pocket Novel Mystery after re-forming briefly with a new line-up, but when this recording was made, it was just me and my wife, Lori. [more inside]

Flesh & Bone

"Why did you come to me only to run from me when I tried to protect you? Why did you turn on me when I tried to warn you there were wolves outside your door with rows of jagged teeth and a taste for red meat? I guess that's how it goes when you're only flesh and bone." Get-up-and-dance, old school electro-pop. [more inside]

The Gilded Cage

We're living in a gilded cage in the gilded age: watching shadows dancing on the wall and rattling our chains so we feel like something's happening when we haven't really done a thing and so we never have to think too long about the mess we've made. Ain't it strange the sun don't shine here? I can't see any source of natural light. There isn't any way to tell the time here. So no one really knows when we arrived... [more inside]

The Book of Love

For this month's MeFi Music Challenge, just to make things confusing, I'm offering a cover of a cover. Specifically, it's a cover of Sleepy Pete and Melissa May's The Book of Love (which, of course, is also a cover--not to mention a hard act to follow). [more inside]

Memory Hole

A sad/angry song about the place where all the things we'd rather forget end up. Inspired by MeFi politics filter, where I was first introduced to the concept of "the memory hole," which in turn gave rise to this song. (This is a redux post after I accidentally posted an old mix before.) [more inside]

Left Hand/Right Hand

A new wave song vaguely in the style of Blondie, with a masturbatory guitar solo at the end to drive the point home. [more inside]

Secret Book (Vocal Mix)

This is a new version of Secret Book, of which I originally posted an instrumental version here. On the new mix, my wife Lori sings beautifully, and I wail a bit at the end. [more inside]

Underwater Silent Movie

An imaginary soundtrack theme from a silent movie filmed entirely underwater. A short but sweet instrumental track from Tangemeenie's forthcoming "The Gilded Age."

Secret Book

An instrumental, rough mix of yet another track from Tangemeenie's work-in-progress, "The Gilded Age." This one takes a low-key, folksy kind of turn. [more inside]

King of Flesh and Bone

The first mostly completed track in a larger project my wife Lori and I are working on under the name Tangemeenie, called "The Gilded Age." It's obliquely about the romantic (and so often foolhardy) impulse to knock down giants just to watch them fall. Lyrics inside. [more inside]

underwater caves

A song about underwater caves and the strange things that live in them. Me and my wife recording as Tangemeenie. Sorry, it's not new, but I wanted to play, too. And I use my guitar to do an impression of water in this song, so it just seemed to fit.
