In the past couple of weeks, I found myself going back to a piece that I'd started working on a few years ago -- probably because it's in a slower triple meter that's somewhat calming for me. This is a condensed one-minute version, featuring piano and guitar, for the 60 Seconds and Under #2 MeFi Music Challenge. [more inside]
This mp3 was converted from a video I made, recording stereo audio straight into my phone. It's a rough draft with minimal instrumentation and arrangement I'm hoping to develop further with a group that recently started coming together called The Wishing Well Divers. [more inside]

I've posted this song and then it's evolved version - now here it is in its FINAL (almost) entirety. [more inside]
My band recorded this in my basement the night before our show at the blind pig. (The second song is Wasted Hearts.)
We were going for a John Cougar Mellencamp, Americana, country-rock thing. We have no interest in having a message, hence the stupid words. And we think vague singing about "Uncle Sam", "the war", "the factory", etc., is funny.
