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]
Another live recording from a concert at my school in spring 2009. Music and Lyrics by me, vocals also me. [more inside]
Full on vocal harmony twin electric 12-string assault, my attempt to collide the Monkees with the Byrds with a side of the Go-Betweens. [more inside]
One of my favorite chord progressions ever. A demo from about 1995 for a notional solo album, and for once I sound like I'm actually worked up about something, which I was. [more inside]
This is an angry, broody, dark, but pretty song. I'm proud of it, I think it's one of my best! Includes a pretty sweet xaphoon (!) solo by yours truly, plus background vocals by my wife. [more inside]
I wrote and recorded this last summer about my asshole boss. Minor structural changes have been made since then, but the idea is there. [more inside]
An uptempo, harmony-laden poppy number about a short-tempered, rotund gentleman who seems to be everywhere I go.
Aggro-industrial stomping, with just a hint of WaxTrax! [more inside]
Most of my songs are sparse. This one is not! It's got "a lot of sound," and some bite. Does it kick buttocks? You decide.
