Babymoon to Minnesota
Another little guitar and cello song about dashed romantic babymoon plans. [more inside]

Cover of this beautiful song by Sibylle Baier. Guitalele, flute/clarinet/marimba/wurlitzer piano synths. [more inside]
Nowhere to be Found
How I felt so lonely tonight How did you find me tonight? When I was nowhere to be found
An instrumental on an electric guitar tuned BABBBB. Features bowed electric guitar, as well. Was listening to a lot of the band Beach House at the time.
Here's a sparse, new version of one of the first songs I uploaded here, The Long Trail. [more inside]
My Roots are Strong and Deep (the Microphones cover)
This is a cover (gah, feels like all I can do lately) of "My Roots are Strong and Deep" by the Microphones. Features my friend Taylor Bridges on heavily distorted banjo, and recorded in this wonderful, cement stairwell back at the school I used to attend. Anyone know of good, secluded, reverby spots in Portland, OR? The sort where people generally won't walk by, but if they do they won't snicker?
I realized the last three songs I've posted have been covers, so it's about time for an original. This is from the same project that this and this is from. [more inside]
Dead Man's Will (Iron & Wine cover)
A cover, but unfortunately not a cover of Vogue by Madonna for the monthly challenge. This is the result of me trying to really know what I am doing with a song before I record, instead of just recording with a "I'll fix that later" approach and piling on more and more tracks. So this is one track, recorded on a USB mic in a pretty stairwell on my college's campus. I'm still stuck on the BbGCFABb tuning. I'd absolutely love any thoughts.
It Could Always Be Early
A song for a little project I've been working on, which is a batch of songs all in the tuning BbGCFABb mostly recorded in my parents sauna. [more inside]
Headless Horseman (the Microphones Cover)
Here's a cover of the Microphones song "Headless Horseman". Here's the original. Here's a song with guitar, piano, banjolele and lots of harmony (by my standards)! [more inside]
Another Sauna Song. Recorded at 4 this morning, and actually sounds more like it was recorded outside than my last song, even though this one wasn't at all. In drop D, but tuned down a whole step. [more inside]
Here's a song that is stylistically similar to Apfel Augen, but with (half stolen) lyrics, and some percussion that I'm quite fond of. The guitar is tuned C#G#C#F#A#C#. It features some cool whistling, which I was trying to make sound like slide electirc guitar. [more inside]
