The Bottom Falls Out of the Clouds (demoriffic version)

cortex was kind enough to let me borrow the lyrics from his song "The Bottom Falls Out of the Clouds" (which he wrote for the first ever MeFi Music Challenge), and allow me to set them to new folky/acoustic/lo-fi music for this month's challenge. [more inside]

first step

An instrumental track that went under the working title "pseudo-eastern." Most prominently features guitars, lap steel, fretless bass and programmed sitar sounds. The subtle percussion is a spinner ring kind of like this one, run through a healthy dose of reverb. [more inside]

If I Fell

Beatles cover recorded with my 6 year old daughter a few years back. Voice is a bit pitchy throughout but give me a break, I was only 40 at the time.

snake (demo)

Another entry in my recent demo series of posts. I posted a not-quite-done version of the track here, featuring piano and overly heavy drums. It's a song about the old classic video game "Snake". I'm sure I'll revisit the "proper" recording some day, but in the meantime, this is a nice performance. [more inside]

come careening (demo)

This is the demo I recorded for this song posted earlier. I slapped some kind of distortion effect over it to approximate the feel I wanted in the final version. Although it's too hazy-sounding and the vocals are nearly unintelligble, I really love a lot of things about this recording. It sounds like some kind of important uncovered secret to me. Anyway, this post is part of an "evolution of my songs" series I started here and here.

the vase (demo)

As a follow-up to this post, here is the demo I recorded for the song I posted a long time ago here. As before, the idea is to share something about the evolution of my songs for anyone who might care.

Suenos

Recorded a couple of years back, this was inspired by a visit to the house of the late composer Manuel De Falla in Granada, Spain (a wonderful city). At the risk of immodesty this one has some of the best "lead" acoustic guitar playing I've recorded to date. For those with no Spanish "suenos" translates as "dreams" [more inside]

undulate underling (demo)

A demo that I later recorded and posted here. I'm posting this as a contribution along the lines of what others have done before me -- providing a window into my songwriting. Plus, I wouldn't be surprised if some prefer this version.

Hallebritishlujah

my take on the monthly challenge fairly faithful but with some harmonies. One take for guitar and vox, one take for harmony, no level altering (it needs it, it also needs the guitar rerecording, but no time!). Again recorded by singing and playing at my mac. One day I'll set up my recording gear!

Gaffer Tape and Glue

I read a friend's blog this morning and she had a line in there about how she felt like her heart was stuck together with gaffer tape and glue. 10 minutes later I had this, another 20 and I had recorded it using Garageband and my mac's internal mic. As I haven't written anything in about two years, I'm pretty happy with this writer's block break. [more inside]

Gone Gone Gone

For the April "two chords" Challenge. The two 3-note chords even share a note in common, so we're talking a total of five notes serving as harmonic accompaniment for this song. Played on the strumstick. There's a hoop drum, too, of indeterminate pitch. I posted a lo-fi, live version of this song to YouTube as well, direct from my 6-mat tatami room at home. You can see it here.

Joy In The Morning (Cast Your Stone)

An older recording that I just dug up. One of my friend Hawk Coleman's best vocal performances. A bit of a folky melodramatic march that builds pretty big towards the end. [more inside]

Part 2 of the drunken covers story rampage (part 1 was pretty angsty), in which our hero borrows from the Flaming Lips as he muses on how to incorporate violence into his law-breaking.

The Best War

Believe it or not, this song was not written about the Iraq war. In fact, it was a reaction to something I was sensing in the air back before the first Gulf War, circa 1990. I changed the wording slightly to reflect the times, but the song still works beautifully. The recording is from my new collection 2 O's, 2 E's (a reference to how I spell my last name). You can download the entire album and lots more stuff at johnvoorhees.com.

Clowning Around

A little upbeat piece I came up with one day mucking around with some friends - not the greatest recording quality, the microphone I used was actually one of those headsets that I clamped over the guitar. Still its one of my favourites, hope everyone gets into it.

Werewolf Night

Ooo! Spooky! Well, it should be pretty obvious that this song has almost nothing to do with literal werewolves, and everything to do with a predatory mindset, but that doesn’t keep it from weirding my mother out every time I play it!
