Medford Grrls

A little tune about some teenage girls I know who could easily kick my ass. I've been working on a session of drum tracks I had my brother do before going into the peace corp for two years, and this is the first song nearing completion. Still getting used to working with real drum tracks. Any pointers and criticism would be great! [more inside]

Out Up and Thru

Snazzy tune by my buddy Pat with a baddass, rocket-ship-style ending. Looking for feedback on the mix, as I'm using a new DAW. Thanks. [more inside]

Police Action!

A riffy instrumental I recorded a long time ago on a cassette 4-track.

Voytek the Soldier Bear

An incomplete mix of a song I'm working on about a bear who joined the Polish Army (the subject should sound familiar). [more inside]

Do the Wrong Thing

Sometimes you need to do the wrong thing. This is the first track from the PRISONERS album THIS IS ALL OF THE TIME. We recorded it at the Hive in Vancouver in January. [more inside]

last hurrah

bouncy, hyperbolic night-out song, wherein I muse on the merits of Jack Daniels as it pertains to dental hygiene. (not really) [more inside]

Blackbox Blues (big ghost version)

My band's rendition of this tune, which I posted a while back. It was fun condensing the 9 track arrangement down for a three-piece. Worth the long intro. [more inside]

What I Deserve (Ex-Machina Mix)

I recently bought a new computer, which allows me to use Guitar Rig 3 LE that came bundled with Cakewalk SONAR without taxing my CPU. So I re-recorded one of my songs with actual guitars. [more inside]

Bring the Chase

Guitar and synth rock, with a certain whiff of the 70s about it, and a comparatively laid back chorus that I'm pretty happy with. Lyrics inside. [more inside]

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]

Thru your eyes

Rock song. weird intro. wish I could sing it like it should be.

it shows

This is an angry, broody, dark, but pretty song. I'm proud of it, I think it's one of my best! Includes a pretty sweet xaphoon (!) solo by yours truly, plus background vocals by my wife. [more inside]

her name is hope

I wrote this after attending a concert late last year. Just finished (?) the recording. It's kind of a tribute to the musician I saw -- maybe you can guess who it is? Either way, it's a track that features guitars, pianos, fretless bass, vibes, drums, vocals and a lap steel part in the chorus that I'm really satisfied with. [more inside]

Asshole Holiday

Tight lil pop diddy about the time my little brother disappeared on New Years day and turned up two months later in the Dominican Republic. This is the first full song I've done on my new computer, which makes me wicked happy. [more inside]

The Ballad of Cherry Hill

This is the lead-off track from the forthcoming EP, Labyrinths, by Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies, to be released 1/7/10. It's a wistful slice of indie-pop about insomnia, suburban isolation, and the boredom of hometowns. [more inside]

run to you (bryan adams cover)

No, seriously. Just for fun, I decided to do this cover song to test out some drum stuff. Thought I'd share this while I work on some new songs...

paint another layer on

Ever get drunk and watch daytime tv and then get kinda pissed off? This is an oldy, but I've been playing it with my band lately, so I revamped it and remixed it. [more inside]

Lost in the Desert

A lengthy (slightly self indulgent) electric guitar piece, I've performed it live with drums and bass but this is recorded just with guitars. Its quite rocky, especially half way through the piece. Bit of a change of pace from my previous postings, hope everyone likes what they hear. If anyone wants to record some drums for it I'd be happy to hear it!

come here (aberdeen)

This started as a weird tune with pseudo-Indian wailing/cat meowing vocals, guitar feedback, and a one-note sitar solo. It still has those elements, but the track ended up being an almost radio-friendly, catchy (?) pop-rock thing. [more inside]
