Mistress Song

I played a gig last week with a violin player and a bassist and they recorded it. This is one of the tunes. [more inside]

Not Enough to Keep Me Satisfied

I wrote a country song awhile back but never got around to figuring out how it should end. The latest Mefi Music Challenge provided suitable inspiration. [more inside]

Leadlined

Title still feels like a placeholder; waiting there for the proper, more apt one to make itself known. Apart from that it's another cornucopia of sameness just like the other stuff. Boogie shoes not required.

Whispers

Part of the unofficial internal mic mefi challenge. A song about a car accident outside my apartment building and the people that come to watch. [more inside]

The Ballad of Daisy and Jay

I've always loved The Great Gatsby - it, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, have some significance here in Minnesota. I tried to get some personal elements into the characters for this. [more inside]

Sift

Kind of a break from recording and re-recording songs to be played live this year, this is kind of a folksy, reverb and acoustic-heavy, simple and short composition. Harmonizing my vocals is such a bummer lately, since it reveals how limited one's range is... [more inside]

Jonathan's Things

An early song; back when all I needed was an intriguing title to enable me to create something. Ah yes, the good old days.

Undercover

Recorded this song last night. It's a new direction, sort of. Unplugged electric bass, acoustic guitar, vocals. 7/4 but unusual rhythm work. I like it, hope you do.

cc'ed

Another acoustic, instrumental tune. This is the first track I've made in GarageBand (my Ubuntu machine died hard last week).

Tip Your Hat

A song I wrote back in 1996. Its lyrics draw from images from the Mexican Day of the Dead, which I've always fancied. In particular, I like the small clay dioramas that show scenes of skeletons going about daily activities, such as getting haircuts or riding in cars, and it is those images that fueled this song.

Dammit (Blink 182 cover)

This is the most unlike me I could ever be. But it seemed like a perfectly natural direction for the song to take, and my luck has been severely down the last couple days, so... (dear people who hate blink182. I do too, most of the time. This doesn't sound like them)

'Til We're Dead

I think I managed to write a somewhat upbeat song! Well, upbeat if you ignore the title and lyrics. It's got: hammond organ, celesta, acoustic guitar, bass, drums, and some epic "Woo-oo-oooh" back up vocals.

Muster

A song from a promising project called Lek that ended up short-lived as we found ourselves living far away from each other. Lyrics and melody by the same friend K who sang the Bjork cover that I posted a while ago. The music is by the rest of us.

Incident After

From the same EP of 2007 as My Fire (O Captain! My Captain!). This one is a little too laid back for how I play it now, it's meant to be a bit more punchy and at a faster clip. [more inside]

Try to act surprised

A song about accepting that bad stuff sometimes does, and will, happen. Written after the untimely death of a relative a year ago. It's not about him per se, but it does make me think of him every time I play it or hear it, just because the song came together at around the time of his passing.
