OK Demons

Song from my band Steady Habits' upcoming EP, "Making Enemies at the Bar". Late 90s-esque third wave ska in all its pop-punk influenced glory. Saccharine as hell, but whatever. If you dig the track and want to help us put it up on vinyl, feel free to pop some scratch into our Kickstarter site. Thanks dudes!

Shotgun

The only good thing about having a sore throat is that for a brief window of time I can hit some low notes. I was too sick today to concentrate on any real work but this was lying around half-finished so I took it another quarter of the way. Despite the title, this is not a murder ballad but a song about the day I realized Ms. unSane might (eventually) become Mrs unSane. Features a totally fake Hawaiian guitar, one of the rare moments where my surf playing has spilled over into one of my songs. [more inside]

The Pink Raincoat (studio version)

Sometimes songs come easy and sometimes they come hard. Everything about this one was hard. The final, sweated over, version of a song I posted a rough demo of a few weeks ago. Hopefully the results are worth it! [more inside]

Pink Saturday

The horns in this bouncy lo-fi surf-garage number? Synthesized. But the off-key backup vocals? They're real.

Don't Rush

I wrote and recorded this song in 1992 in Walnut Creek, California near San Francisco. I remember I was preparing to climb Mt. Whitney. I was pretty prolific in my songwriting then. It was about my first girlfriend, and how we pretty much took our time, and spent many years together during our youth in a healthy relationship. I think it's a pretty good example of a formula pop/love song. I hope you like it! [more inside]

Whatever You Give (I'll Take from You)

Money Growz Treez

More of my experiment into writing/producing pop-ish music. I'm poor and just messing around at this point, so it's just Garage Band. Feedback much appreciated! [more inside]

After the Summer Has Gone

I thought this month's "Summer Song" challenge would be a slam dunk -- breezy, fluffy bubblegum! I can do that! I regret to report that Things Did Not Go As Planned. [more inside]

Summer's Calling (remix)

I wasn't at all happy with the first version of this challenge track that I posted. So I redid it, and now it makes me feel all sunshiney inside. [more inside]

Summer's Calling

This is the second of two summersongs... this one is my attempt to shake off the summertime blues and write something genuinely hopeful, complete with a spoken intro and healthy helpings of cheese and bubblegum all round. [more inside]

Sugar, Sugar

On the day that I was born (in San Diego), the Archies' quintessential bubblegum pop song was a #1 hit (in England). This is a pretty straightforward version, although the guitars and bass and drums have all been replaced with marimbas and glockenspiels. [more inside]

likeBOOM

Based on a chopped and sliced sample of a heart beating, in this track Millimeters of Mercury (my "stage name") pulls his shields of extreme Auto-Tune down slightly to let you get a little more close and personal.

Back on my Back Again

Another slice of 1995 Big Star/Television influenced indie ephemera from my 4-track cassette box. I still really love this guitar riff and the herky jerky power pop stuff at the end of the chorus. A song about not wanting someone to feel bad for dumping you. When I first heard Sloan, I thought 'man, they stole my sound' although really we both stole Velvet Crush's. [more inside]

Seventeen Below (Electric Version)

Someone suggested I re-record this with a heavier treatment. So I threw the kitchen sink at it. Guitars, guitars, more guitars, a cello section, some HEAVY guitars, harmonies and a bonus weather forecast. Don't let the quiet beginning fool you. [more inside]

Darker Shade of Blue (Electric version)

Amped up version of a song I posted a few days ago. Gnarly guitars, Hammond organ, sweet harmonies, in a Television / Big Star / Matthew Sweet frame of mind. [more inside]

Darker Shade of Blue

Another semi-autobiographical 1995 slice of cheerful melancholia. But a pretty guitar riff and one of my favorite choruses to sing, even if I never really could hit the last note. There's an electric version of this with more of a Big Star / Matthew Sweet feel, but darned if I can find it and anyway I like this one. [more inside]
