The Pianimal: Episode 1 - Tom Waits Covers

August 28, 2008 8:55 PM

Recorded live in my living room on Monday night, the debut episode of this four-song, one-take podcast is my way of making sure I DO something with the piano in the corner. Each song fits a certain theme (this episode, it's Tom Waits covers), and there are no re-takes or edits allowed. It's the Pianimal -- and it's ALIVE!

This week's tracks:
1. New Coat of Paint
2. Big in Japan
3. San Diego Serenade
4. All The World is Green

Next episode’s theme is 90s Pop Songs, in which The Pianimal will delve deeply and bravely into the dark realm of boy bands and great dancing. You KNOW you wish you still had an excuse to listen to Backstreet.

To subscribe to the podcast or to see the oh-so-cute graphic I drew for the Pianimal, visit the post on my website for Episode 1.

This is such a cool idea, you should keep posting them here, though, it's great to have new things of unsuspected format in the site. And even though I haven't got to it (it's still playing) I have to congratulate you for choosing "All The World Is Green". Epic song.

Your covers of the songs are great, but my favorite moment is when the phone rings and you briefly consider answering it.

This was a lot of fun to listen to.
