Our Gold Machine

This is a sad, grim, angry dirge that I wrote out of frustration at my complicity in systemic injustice. 100% Ableton Live software instruments, aside from the percussion in the final chorus, which is a Nord Drum 3P, which is AMAZING btw. [more inside]

Make it Up

This isn't the best quality demo, but this is our dancy, live crowd-pleaser

Stony Brook

From the back catalog of The Olivers. Somehow this one never made it over here. As always, interested in y'all's thoughts.

The Olivers are on some rough seas right now, but here's something to guide us all to better shores. [more inside]

What's Wrong With Amerika

On of my band KiLiFAX's mainstay 'anthems', the song title pretty much says it all. [more inside]

There is a Light

The final song from The Olivers' slap-happy EP. Complete with bald-faced Beatles and U2 references. Listen, Comment, Favorite, and Add To Playlist. Enjoy!

Tidal Girl

The Fourth installment by The Olivers, my band with Afroblanco and a few other guys. (Previously 1, 2, 3.) This is another fairly earnest pop-rock song that we think is pretty hot, but without your opinions, we have no real way of knowing, now do we? We thank you all for any thoughts or suggestions you might have.

John Hughes

The first song off of The Olivers' EP Cleveland Panda Rampage, though the third one to post. (Previously (1, 2)) Afroblanco and I play in a band together. This is a song, well, not about the noble '80's director so much as inspired by his cheesy yet touching brand of passionate sincerity. As always, we want to hear from the people/spambots. Especially the spambots. Thank you.

Summon My Jesus

The second song to post from our new EP. (Previously) This is my band with Afroblanco and some other guys. We're called The Olivers, and are giddy for your comments, snarky or otherwise.

Big Ideas

So Afroblanco and I have a band together with some other guys. (I am on guitar, he on doumbek and other percussion.) Here is the first of a few songs to come over the coming weeks. Cheers.

Talkers vs. Writers

"Oh, yeah! You're a sucker!" "Works everytime!" "Let the other ones talk!" Though it's not the subject of the lyrics, this song always seemed somewhat appropriate to MetaTalk to me. I've been meaning to upload it since Mefi Music came together, but little things here and there seemed to always get in the way. The incarnation of the band that recorded this swiftly broke up later that same year. We've all gone on to other bands. Anyhow, here it is now. The year: 2002. The band: Knife Skills. The method: Tascam 4-track. The location: A & D's concrete wall, shed/apartment in Brooklyn, NY. The safetyfork: Bass.

Briscoe

Another Division of Planes song from Trembling Wires, but with a different vibe than Ghost. I think this is the most mellow track on the ep, actually. Recorded by Scott Norton at Headgear Recording Studios and mastered by TJ Lipple at Silver Sonya.

Ghost

A quick lil' song from my band DIVISION OF PLANES. Recorded by Scott Norton winter of 2006 at Headgear Recording Studios in Brooklyn, NY for our upcoming ep Trembling Wires. Mastered by TJ Lipple at Silver Sonya. Both TJ and Scott did an excellent job. We got the masters back from TJ last week. I'll post a few more when I can.

Snakey

This is a song I did in 1995 with my band Verge on the album Little Idiot. This recording is entirely the product of the studio, but we would play it live too. (We'd drag out a lot of gear that would barely function at times to do just that...) We made this recording in the basement of my loft (at the time, sigh) in Williamsburg sometime between 1993 and 1995, sequencing it on a Mac IIci computer with no sampling or digital audio though we did record onto a digital 8-track tape recorder (remember "tape"?) so the guitar solos and voice and synth and things are pretty well as they occurred.
