This is the first song I ever wrote. It's also perhaps the saddest?

John & Tanya - Werewolf Night

This is from our JUST released album, The Story Is Everything. We're trying to beat a crazy deadline and sell 17 CDs before the end of the day tomorrow (Thursday, May 17). If we do it, we can bring physical discs to the Kerrville Folk Festival next weekend. Here's the link, should you happen to feel generous. Thanks for listening!

Hold On To Love (simplified version)

I decided to rearrange this song that I posted before to take out some of the crazy modulation and make it more straightforward. What do you think? [more inside]

the degenerate case

A trace of various examinations of questions I have had about melody, beauty, tradition. This is not the degenerate case, but rather it is about the degenerate case. [more inside]

Such Great Heights (cover)

I've always had a soft spot for this Postal Service song, so here's an acoustic cover featuring resonator guitar, pump organ, and ten copies of me. Lighters out for the last chorus, please.

J Base

Short instrumental with multi-tracked acoustic guitar. I apologize for how quiet and fuzzy the recording is. This is my first upload on MetaFilter but I have other stuff posted under the same username on Youtube if you care to listen to anything else. Thanks!

For Valentine's Day, 2012, a ragtime arrangement of two unlikely bedfellows: Lady Gaga's Bad Romance and the 1817 JC Lowry tune Pisgah (58 in The Sacred Harp). [more inside]

Girl on a Swing (Ballad of a Cavalryman)

This is a super-rough demo of a song I wrote yesterday for the 'Has Been for Years' song fight. It's a gothic little waltz using a resonator guitar, told from the point of view of a trooper in the 7th cavalry who was killed at Little Big Horn while waiting to be relieved by Reno's troops. Recorded before I put my pants on, for the challenge. Video proof is here. [more inside]

Don't Disturb This Groove (Ex Machina Mix)

A few weeks back, I bought an acoustic-electric guitar. I want to go back to the songs where I faked guitar parts and replace them with real ones. I posted this cover of The System's "Don't Disturb This Groove" a long time ago. This new version changes the strumming style enough to necessitate the addition of a bass part. [more inside]

Teenagery

Recorded onto an audio cassette in about 1982 from a radio/cassette player with built-in mic. As a bit of a laugh between recording our more earnest efforts at Irish folkmusic (posted earlier here).The Early Puritans we called ourselves up there in Stockholm. Does it count as a September offering? [more inside]

The Sun Still Shines (when your heart is breaking)

A quick semi-impromptu-one-take-in-my-pajamas recording of a sad little Wilco/Elliot Smith-ish song that's been buzzing around my head. Using a crappy MXL mic which I really don't like, but was the closest to hand. [more inside]

Cooling Card

I don't often deliberately set out to learn a cover, but I love this Jawbox song a lot and wondered if I could somehow squash a bassline and two guitar parts down into one. Not sure if I succeeded, but this is a lot of fun to play.

Not Anywhere Anymore

i put down the phone / left a bag of cookies on the corner / filled my brain with a soft white light / sent all my 8-track tapes / to my cousin down in mississippi / took my foot off the pedal, and gave up the fight... A brand new song, live in Tokyo, May 1, 2011. Video here.

Grateful Wanderer

Many of the gigs I'm doing these days here in Tokyo are fundraisers for Tohoku quake/tsunami disaster relief. This tune was from one such concert. The video for it has been added to the Artsts Support Japan YouTube channel, and it can be seen here.

Irony

Also recorded around 2007, this along with the other song I posted are all that remains of 30+ recordings. "Irony" - inspired by the Reverend Peter Popoff of televangelist fame.

Golden Ratio

You just want an excuse to dance. KOLNBandcampLyrics This is the penultimate entry in a series of outtakes that did not make it onto the album "Damn Poets", to be released soon. (It is implied that the tracks on the album are superior to these outtakes. This is true.) If you like my songs, I would very much appreciate if you'd consider leaving your email. You will not be spammed; you will be among the first to find out when Damn Poets drops.

No Such Place As Home

Yet another tune recorded in a classroom at the former elementary school were I was a refugee for a few days. Here I'm playing a berimbau they had lying around. Not playing it in the usual way (caoiera-style, you know), but just kinda strumming it. Your basic one-note accompaniment. Video here.
