Does this belong in a movie?
There's a song with words and stuff that this was originally based on, but I like the instrumental version better. Mellow, textured, haunting, builds slowly. What do you think?
Tough Love Black Eye
Punk, metal, jazz, slack, folk and noise. This pretty much typifies the grab bag that was my band, Big Ghost. Like trying to get Pavement and RHCP to agree on California rock. It's a mess, but it was our kinda mess. [more inside]
You're So Dangerous!
An upbeat ditty about falling in love, blah blah blah. Cobbled together during my currently-on-hiatus 52 weeks project. Inspired by Holiday-era Magnetic Fields. [more inside]
So this is another song, audio is taken directly from the youtube video here. This is a live performance, did a session in the lighting hire and install company I work for over the weekend. This video forms part of a competition entry for our band. [more inside]
Something fairly new. This is two of us playing live, me on bass and singing, and synth and drum machine from Magnus. [more inside]
Resistor -- Cordless Phone
A Men's Snarehouse production. Watch the video. [more inside]
Everyone I Know
Resistor celebrates springtime with a lush new single, "Everyone I Know." This hook-laden dance-pop number is seasoned with Resistor's cynical charm, pondering whether originality can exist if a person is merely a product of his environment. Of course, the existentialism lurks beneath many layers of burbling synths, glitchy drum machines, and boy-girl harmonies. [more inside]
If You Don't Cry
"If You Don't Cry" by Resistor (originally performed by The Magnetic Fields).
Resistor - Keep it to Yourself
Another bit of synthpop metacommentary in the form of the funny-cause-it's-sad-cause-it's-true inner monologue of a cynical artist. [more inside]
My take on the McCartney Christmas tune. [more inside]
The 11th entry in the monthly series of homemade synthpop singles from Resistor, "Narcissist" does what it says on the tin. [more inside]
Resistor -- All I Wanna Do Is Strum My Ukulele
A simple electro-ukulele ode to solitude and song. [more inside]
"I'll Refuse" is a synthpop doowop revenge song. There's a video here. [more inside]
Resistor - Insecure
This one is a sparkly nugget of synthpop about the bitter, self-sabotaging adolescent lurking within all of us. Or at least within me. It's classic Resistor. [more inside]
Resistor - Vincent van Gogh
A homemade synthpop tune about the myth of the meritocracy and the pain of being an artist without an audience, like something Stephin Merritt could've come up with on a dreary evening in an alternate universe where The Magnetic Fields never got popular. [more inside]
Resistor - David the Gnome
This is an electro version of the theme song to the children's show "The World of David the Gnome," which aired in the US on Nickelodeon from 1987 to 1995. [more inside]
Resistor -- Lighting and Distance
A new synthpop song from Resistor about all the lies we agree to believe in so we can make it through the day. [more inside]
You Still Believe in Me
A synthesized take on the Beach Boys by Resistor.
Resistor -- Ingenue
A minor-key waltzing synthpop lament of being unemployed and underappreciated. [more inside]
Resistor - Video Games
Resistor vs. Lana Del Rey [more inside]
Resistor - First World Problems
Resistor makes real songs for synthetic lives. [more inside]
Once It Was The Colour Of Saying (Work In Progress)
This is incomplete and very current WIP from my glacial synth-based alter ego and is perhaps something of a companion piece to White Feather. I'd really appreciate opinions on (a) the pretty drastic transitions in the piece from the rhythmic to the quasi-orchestral and back again, (b) whether the lyric theme has any kind of cheddar whiff, and (c) whether it needs more "oomph" under the orchestral bits (actually difficult to pull off without destroying the mood - I've tried....). Any other comments welcome of course - but this is unfinished and well rough so....geeza break. [more inside]
The Garden of Forking Paths
Just another folk-rock song about Jorge Luis Borges. [more inside]
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo, la la la, la la la la. The new hit single from Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies. A chamber-pop meditation on time, aging, and death. [more inside]
First song ever written, and completed. Written/recorded in 2 hours flat. Fishing for feedback.
Here's a track from my album about wanting to be a robot. I figure lots of you folks can probably relate. My band is currently touring the east coast, with dates in VA, NC, WV, MD, PA, NJ, NY, CT, and VT. Details inside!
