Rainbow Capitalism

Getting this up here before the month ends: the latest from our killed-by-death styled punk band Franky and the Slight Incline. It's over quick. [more inside]

June 23

Out of Metal and Wire

It's track 5/5 on the Hellish EP, and the highest tempo by a good measure, at a brisk 175bpm with it's own kind of groove.

June 20


just... three. You probably get its simplicity, but it sure does sound like the spiraling path to hell. Probably also appropriate as the next recurring pattern in which you get stuck in my "sleep paralysis" series.

Aesop Mountain (mandolin cover)

In the event of encountering wild foxes be encountered in the mountains (see yt vid), my repertoire now includes a tune for them.

A dance track that goes pretty hard! Your enjoyment might be enhanced by a very basic but very cute animation loop. This is Track 4/5 on the EP. [more inside]

May 30

Bulutlar Arasidin

from a book of Uyghur melodies

May 24

Till The Bells Bring Us Home

High-energy synths and percussion with intertwining, anthemic melodies. (My love of Rush probably shows but it's a pretty straightforward tune.)

May 20


This was a fun one to make. Basically one improvised take on a MIDI keyboard which is hooked up to 3 synths and drum machine, with a pad from a 4rd synth going on in the background. Piano and noise-wave crashes were added afterwards. Using the JX-8P as a bass synth for the first time and gotta say....not too shabby!!!!!! [more inside]

May 19


Electronics with some guitars that really need to be re-recorded but this had already taken too much time. [more inside]

May 16


Just mucking about with Audacity, playing with sliders and buttons and numbers. This is a 3-minute slow-motion loop of the Gap Band, Dif Juz, and PJ Harvey, all noodled up and sludged out and ready for your next terrifying bout of sleep paralysis.

May 13


Some chiptune dnb* played on an sms** and an snes***, both midi controlled. [more inside]

08 - crickets tell the temperature - vampire deer

"but they didn't do their repetoire for long" - that's the last song for now - thanks for listening

May 4

If I Can (You Can Too)

A pretty simple dance tune. I borrowed (well, adapted) a melody, I admit - but it was a 4/4 melody crying out to be in 3/4, and I wanted to set it right. This is track 2/5 on the Hellish EP.


Got an Arturia Keystep which means I can now program sequences on the JX-8P and baby it is a game changer!!!!!! Marimba sounds are from the Roland SC-88 which is MIDI'd up to the JX-8P as well.

May 3


2 analogs synth looping together. Experimenting with CV connectivity to create syncopation.

07 - sunflower year - vampire deer

last year was strange and disturbing and this year's no better

April 28

06 happy ever after - vampire deer

stuck ranting in a post-modern fairy tale

April 25

05 through my window - vampire deer

a hymn of burned out apathy

April 24

Middlesex Fells

A granular synth piece fed by a crunchy field recording. [more inside]

April 23

04 golden hole - vampire deer

the golden hole is in the median of hall rd, between utica and sterling heights, which is a horrendously busy section of northern detroit suburbia - locals are more specific about what kind of hole it is but i will refrain from crudeness - i would really hate to deliver stuff around there, which i think this song is about

April 22

03 everything's under control - vampire deer

either than or we're totally incompetent and nobody wants to believe that

April 21


Spanish guitar plus electronics

April 17

02 lost and dazed - vampire deer

history is so interesting unless you're living it

April 16

Another Daughter

01 can't get away from the smog - vampire deer

i wrote this when i was 16 or 17 - funny how things haven't changed - it's the 1st of 8 songs - the album's name is crickets tell the temperature

Entrance Music for the Billionaire Techbro's Throneroom

(for an Imaginary, Low-Budget Cyberpunk Movie)

April 13


Upbeat melodic Euro-trance style tune with big hooks - should get you to put your hands up and/or your foot down. Check out the video here. [more inside]
