Just A Veneer

Snarky Americana. Mostly about a girl I dated once who just lovvvveed reaching into my wallet.

Memory in New York

This is a soundtrack that I originally created and produced. It is about the vibes of New York City as a melting pot which is urban, lively and unique. It is in jazz style and I used Logic Pro X.

Theme Song Theme

Not a complete theme song, more like the theme of a theme song. It makes mundane tasks like checking the mailbox seem urgent and full of import.

Safe and Sound [Capital Cities cover]

Jessamyn asked me to cover this song a long time ago, and I set about it at a snails pace. It's finally done! (Sorry it took so long, darlin.) It started out in my mind as, "What if New Order or the Cure covered it?", and it turned out sounding like me covering it. I worked more over the past month to make sure it sounded the way I wanted it to, and I learned a lot about Garageband along the way. I'm kinda proud of it. And I'm glad it's over. [more inside]

The Mission

Whenever someone writes cross-genre, it always leaves you wondering what flavor their potpourri will take. When you see post-rock and shoegaze together, you might also have an idea of what you'll be hearing, but throw a piano in there, and you've caught everybody off kilter. That's what this song does, but nicely so. [more inside]

B Reel

I thought it fitting that my first Mefi Music post should be something I've never done before and is pretty well outside my usual realm of experience, so tada! This is a beat I made for a friend, but things fell through and now it's a lost soul. [more inside]

If psychedelic space rock can be sparkly, this song would be the epitome of that dynamic.. Or shimmery or glistening or whatever. Glitter is in the eye of the beholder.

Salt Water ~circa 2004

It was 2004 and I was staying with some new found friend in California, sleeping on his couch while I filled a Production Asst. for a straight-dvd-movie filming in Hollywood, Ca. He had this Digital multi-track recorder handed down to him by a friend, which he told me didn't work. It worked off a Zip drive disk, where it stored what you recorded. I believe the drive was probably failing frequently (wasn't that the case with all of those zip drives?)... [more inside]

Jimmy's Tune

My friend Jimmy wrote the lyrics and chord changes, we had a drummer friend come in and lay down a groove and I did the rest of the instrumentation, recording and mix down. Enjoy
