Make Right the Time
This is my synth-based anthem cover of the song by singer/songwriter Danny Schmidt. This version is an earlier draft from 2018, mostly from a whirlwind month when I was trying to get as much done before my trial of Ableton Live ended. Me on vocals, synth/loops. Many thanks to not_on_display for the arrangement idea and feedback through multiple iterations. Basically I made this to help myself feel better, and I figure it's something I could share especially now. [more inside]
Building a beat around an organ loop [more inside]
A piece I wrote and recorded with a friend as part of an instrumental post-rock project.
The Ballad of Highway Boy
All this awful flood action has inspired me to dig up the sad old tail of Highway Boy, raised by his trucker brother, because his father was a hurricane and his mother was a cellar door. [more inside]
True Love Will Find You In The End (Daniel Johnston Cover)
If you know of him, you may have an opinion that Daniel Johnston is a outsider genius, a troubled victim of hipster exploitation, or simply a not-so-typical independent musician who found his audience. If nothing else, his work is irrefutably full of sincerity and emotion. This little piece of his is one of the great American songs. [more inside]
Mouth of the Coldest Seas
A tribute to the ancient hidden source of all cold seas and those that watch over it. With vocals by my friend who sings in an actual early music choir! It's also got square waves, organs, and sometimes ambiguous chords.
(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love & Understanding
[Cover] Sentimental and simple, but a good reminder of what matters. [more inside]
Christmas Glow Worm

The next from Earth and Sky. [more inside]
Even more (distorted) pump organ in your electronic music. [more inside]
Memories Of Emerald City
An attempt to get my synth-plugin to sing. The tune I wrote sounds kinda like MPS from Kid A, but it wasn't intentional ;-)
wilshire waltz one
Well, it's been about (over?) 3 years since I last posted. I haven't done a single music-related thing in that time. This one just kind of came out. It's an instrumental waltz about walking in the city.
So Much More
Just got a new zoom h6 to record with. Guitar, vocals, whistling, and a 1930's Dogherty pump organ. [more inside]
Time to Get Up
I don't know why I keep going back to this song I wrote when I was 17, but here's new version of Time to Get Up that I recorded yesterday. Starts slow, but includes lots of organ, a little cardboard box banging percussion and Leah Wilmoth's reverb'd out harmonies. Recorded on a Zoom H2. Wear headphones.

Quite possibly the creepiest science paper ever. [more inside]
Blessings of the Swazi (Nkulunkulu Mnikati wetibusiso temaSwati - Swaziland)
Next from Anthemic comes a much more abstract interpretation of a much more obscure anthem, from a country many more people are prone to forget exists. It's also, probably, my personal favourite track of the whole album. I'd like to think it very deftly stomps through the full spectrum of brilliance and stupidity, at any and all times. [more inside]
Without My Pants On
Submission for this month's "record a track before you put on your pants in the morning" challenge. I sat down in my underwear at 7:35am to put together a song about what might have happened if I had sat down without my underwear. [more inside]
Sometimes With You
Sometimes with you, I forget myself and laugh! (headphones recommended) [more inside]

First stab at recording my new Estey folding Chaplain's pump organ. [more inside]
Let's go grab a pizza.
On The Sunny Side Of The Street
I am tired of having a cold. I miss singing too much. And I was thinking... gravelly voices are cool, right? So I finally gave in to the urge; here's me singing and playing my old organ on the old standard by Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields. One take, no mixing, all the crap left in just like I like it. Pretty sloppy, but at least it's got character.
Side By Side
Cover of the old favorite, an impromptu Valentine's day gift. Me on acoustic and electric guitars, my little old organ, and vocals. [more inside]
A redo of this in a new direction.

Maria...Lorianne... (part two of two)
Spacey, instrumental, bongo-heavy breakbeat-driven jam with vintage analogue organ sounds sampled from a Baldwin Funmachine. Picks up where the first half stopped and has more of a prog-hip-hop vibe than the first section. [more inside]

One of the first songs I ever wrote, remade in a multi-million-dollar studio by a band that broke up shortly after it was recorded. The original version is here. [more inside]

Assasins Never Cry (rough mix)
There are 22 James Bond movies (counting the one in production), but there should be more. And these additional nonexistent ones need theme songs. We in Derailleur have taken it upon ourselves to provide the theme songs, hoping the movies will catch up with us. [more inside]
