For decades now, I have been inspired by songs that make you think beyond just a lovely melody (hopefully they'd go hand in hand together). On that note, here's a song about unwinding and placing greater value in human relations (at a time when we so greatly need this).
While the term space rock is kicked around quite often these days, there is something else out there: space pop. This song epitomizes that term, as reflected in the title itself. Poppy, spacey and ethereal trip to the cosmos. [more inside]
This remix of the track "Lama" does not outright flip the original version on its head, though it does dress it in a murkier shade of darkgaze (darkwave). The bright dreamy element from the original version spills over into this version too, so as to not detract from the original point of this song in the first place. I hope you enjoy it. Your feedback is most welcome.

I was surprised to find I'd never posted this to MeFi Music. Yet another Radiohead cover by me and my friend Mel. On MySpace we are Minor Vine. [more inside]
The proverbial seeds of this song were planted when I visited Savannah, Georgia at the beginning of the month and found myself captivated by the ubiquitous plant life named in the title. Later, when I was working on lyrics and couldn't think of a second verse, my bandmate Mel reminded me of a dream my friend Kathy had in which I killed a guy and hid him behind a couch. The end result may be disproportionately creepy, but I rather like it. [more inside]
This post made me feel a bit less self-conscious about doodling away at music with bugger-all technical skill. So I thought I'd chance your ears with a short shouty number. [more inside]
I was so upset by King Benny's loss of pets/friends as described in 'All my hearts are belong to you' that I fell into a fit of sentimental indulgence and thus penned a hurried tribute. Apologies for taking anyone's name in vain...
We totally spelled this wrong on our EP. Hope y'all like it.
For no good reason, here is a random cover that came out of an evening spent trying to get to grips with multitracking in Cool Edit pro...
This is about one of those times when you know you really shouldn't, but you just can't help yourself...;) [more inside]
While it pains me as an older brother to say this, I think these songs written by my sister and friend are something. They're both 15 and budding musicians! The ID3 tags are subject to change, they're undecided re: group name.
Song from the band I used to play in, Go On Red. Rock and Roll song with a ska edge.
