Today I learned that the Bushman from San Francisco is gone forever. I wrote him a rock song about all the times he scared me while I was growing up. RIP Bushman.

Cloud Ships

A mid-tempo piece, built around the opening drum riff. Carbon 7 is an improvisational jazz/space/rock trio that just makes it up on the spot. [more inside]

I am happy to you. Inspired by this MeFi post and the audio that went with it. And old track I remixed. Particularly looking for feedback on the bass instrument and how it's mixed etc.

A glitch?

So today, I cannot get any of the recent posts to play. If I work my way down to Feb 5, they all seem to play from then and earlier. Has anyone else noticed this? posted by Danf at 11:07 AM PST - 4 comments

22 (not a t. swift song)

I took a break from music stuff for six months, and then came up with three songs in rapid succession. I'm out of practice, and I'm not in love with this one, but it's the best of the three. Posting just so I don't completely fall out of the habit.

F'n Amazing

More electronic beats! I was going to wait until I had finished a whole song before I posted this, but who am I kidding? This is probably it. I think I'm getting better at making virtual instruments though. If not better, louder at least.

Trailer Park Madonna

My friend Chris showed up the other day with a terrific two chord song he wrote, so we sat down and blasted it out. He's such a great lyricist with a great rusty voice reminiscent of John Prine. Not the kind of thing I normally do but we had a lot of fun and I love this track. Americana I guess.

Millimeters of Mercury - Immortal

A cutesy synthpop commentary on basic human nature, fears, religion, why we think what we think and do what we do, and our place in the universe. [more inside]

Random Pictures of Strangers

As happens from time to time, a comment someone made here at Metafilter was the spark of inspiration for a song. This was the comment, and here's the song.
