Heroes Run

Escape from San Clemente

Upbeat dancey-trancey music for driving fast and far away (from wherever you want to be far away from). Never mind the meter, you can dance to it!

Bushy Tails

Short, fun and bouncy, melodic, dancelike-although-odd-metered, all electronic instrumental. Sort of like a lobotomized Dream Theatre interpreted via Kitsune2 would be one way of putting it. [more inside]

Windmill

A song from probably january 2010 about the huge windmill on my former college. If you haven't been up close to a windmill, you're missing out on the friendliest giants out there. I am currently without any instruments so I am experimenting with the synths on my computer so I pulled up this old guitar/voice song to play with. [more inside]

East Harlem

Still on the horse, this time with a Beirut cover! This one took a lot longer, 3 nights of iPad work. Beirut usually has a lot of brass instruments, so this one was a real challenge, but I'm proud of how it came out. [more inside]

I really have no explanation for what I was thinking on this.

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]

Obstruction

This is what happens when a wimpy acoustic guitar player writes a song entirely with a vintage synthesizer. [more inside]

Can I Register Online Please?

This started as a little tune I made up a couple years when I was trying to register for classes at my community college using their online system which wasn't working. All the parts on this track were recorded by me using my friend Ian's microKORG XL.

Beautiful Bidet

A short song about the positive and then the negative male relationships in my life. Features classical guitar, reverbed out bowed banjo, auto-tuning, synth, french doors slamming. This is the latest in a string of versions of this song, having trouble finishing it. [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]

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]

Sun Doom

Quiet, loud, low, and high bleeps. Plus drums. (Unfortunately, it sounds weird on built-in computer speakers. The toms and bass get chopped out almost completely. Maybe skip if you don't have headphones. Sorry, guys.)

Hello, Are You There? I'm Listening.

Kind of experimental...starts off very synthy. Not a song exactly but probably enjoyable. [more inside]

a strange and mysterious adventure

This instrumental track was originally named "Em wrong" because it came out of absentmindedly playing my guitar while watching tv and accidentally strumming an E minor chord incorrectly on the 3rd fret. The resulting song has an uneasy, mysterious vibe. [more inside]

Once again, friends, it's the Smoke Benders: Daysuke on tuba, Naoya on drums, and me on pocket drill, diddley bow, light-triggered synth and vox. Live in Toyama, Japan. Video here.

The Fanstastic Voyage of the U.S.S. Totes McGotes

The usual silliness from me. The sauciest synth licks are to be found at 0:54 and 1:05.

Star Dream

Smoothy, dreamy chillout vibes with gently gliding arpeggios swirling over luscious synth chords. Think Futurecop meets Mike Oldfield.

A Joke I Didn't Understand

This tune is another example of a lyric directly inspired by a Metafilter comment. Shortly after reading the comment, I wrote the lyrics, and posted them in that same thread. Got around to singing it (well, it's half sung, half intoned, actually) the other night. Video here. [more inside]

Spacetime

A little progish - lots of analog synth, lots of interesting sounds, harmonies, counterpoint, a little odd meter, hopefully pretty catchy chorus, and one of the more obscure lyrics I've written (lyrics inside)... lots of stuff! [more inside]

Bad Romance (ukulele & synth one-man live cover)

Yes, I know, it's Gaga, and it's overplayed, and likely to polarise opinion. But on the other hand, despite all of that, this really is a good song. (And you can tell it's a good song because it survived me butchering it with a uke.) Video version is available here. [more inside]
