OP-1 Clicks and womms

Recently got a Teenage Engineering OP-1 and this is a first attempt to put the 4-track through it's paces. It's a noisy little thing, extremely digital. In addition decided to put this together without any sequencers so the rhythms are... inconsistent. This is straight out of the device, no additional processing.

Fuxxed Rx

About 10 years ago I had a pretty terrible year. A lot of people thought they knew what was wrong with me & also thought they knew how to "fix" me, but they all turned out to be wrong.

Many Chords

My wife had a pessimistic guitar instructor when she was younger, one of those "there's nothing new in music, there's only 12 notes" kind of musicians. So, as a rebuttal to that mindset, here's an in-progress 50+ chord progression that I think is turning out swimmingly so far.

Help me describe this

I have been writing some new songs that are probably influenced by the fact that I am listening to a lot more pop music than I used to. However, they don't sound like what I'm listening to, despite the fact that I do not feel I have invented some new, groundbreaking genre here. How would you describe this song? Any artists/genres it sounds like? [more inside]

Go Bag

I wrote this in October 2017. Originally it was going to be a lighhearted song about someone I know who used to carry around two bags everywhere they went, one of them a "go bag." In world news, Russia was expelling diplomats, North Korea had tested a nuclear bomb, almost 1000 people were shot in Las Vegas by one gunman, so it became something else, a love song for lovers in a time of fear.
