I made my children to sing on another Christmas song. In three-part harmony. Merry Christmas, everybody.
Cover of the Carpenters song. [more inside]
More of a slow-building groove than a "song." Probably recorded about 10 years ago, I honestly can't remember. [more inside]
Sort of a spare, dirge-like rendition. [more inside]
A riff song about using a kid's room to hide contraband. Two tube amps, a 1970's generic-brand Japanese drum kit and some other stuff.
Sort of a sappy one. [more inside]
I entered this over at Songfight a few months ago. The song for that week had to be titled "Boron Rod." I didn't know what that was so I had to look it up. [more inside]
Another pep talk for the anxious and non-confrontational. [more inside]
My attempt at a "summer song" for this month's challenge. [more inside]
Cover of The Rascals' song that was a Billboard #1 hit on the day I was born. With a bit of a nod to "The Model." [more inside]
This song was #1* on the day I was born. [more inside]
Really old demo recording that I recently found on a decaying tape. [more inside]
A tune about an odd man who used to roam around my neighborhood as a kid. He wore a crown sometimes. Featuring chococat on drums. [more inside]
A song begun a few years ago and just recently finished. I recorded the initial acoustic guitar track last summer in the boathouse, using a condenser and also the stero mic on my video camera. While fighting off mosquitos. [more inside]
Antisocially romantic. [more inside]
From the "Island of Misfit Toys" scene in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. What was wrong with the doll? [more inside]
Cover of a Byrds cover of an old Louvin Brothers song. [more inside]
It's so hard to see through the filth and the grime.
I can't stand it when a couple will fight with, swear at, humiliate or completely demean each other in front of a room of people. It happens a lot. [more inside]
In the style of Leonard Cohen. Just kidding. For the Velvet Underground challenge thing. [more inside]
Brazilian Infomercial fodder. [more inside]
Another from the waste-bin of demos that never went anywhere. Gauging from the effects unit, I'd say 1996; at least pre-1997.
Cohen, prison style. [more inside]
I don't know what this is; kind of a pseudo-jugband, neo-bluegrass-ish, Hee-Haw with a whiney singer. [more inside]
For May's "remake your first song" challenge. [more inside]
For the April "write a song with only two chords" Music Challenge. Brought to you by the chords E and A. [more inside]
It's the same, dark road. The same, dark room.
At least I hope it will be. [more inside]
Weird demo. Probably 10 years old. Releasing it to the ether; good riddance.
Ya. Kind of a Norman Bates take on it.
Cover. As requested by Mr. cortex.
Cover. Obviously. [more inside]
Sort of a pathological sibling rivalry. Not autobiographical.
Water as escapism.
I was in a band called gleaner in the late 90's and we recorded four songs at a "real" studio. This was an attempt to make a (power)poppy, happy thing about a stalker-y kind of person. This is the second of the two songs from this session that were mine. The first is here. [more inside]
For this month's challenge, in the "Spy Music" category. [more inside]
You won't care tomorrow. [more inside]
We're finally free and clear. [more inside]
Because it's new.
For this month's MeFiMu Challenge: Here's my fuzzy, fizzy, buzzy cover of chococat's original, one of my very favorite MeFi songs. [more inside]
Dirty, crusty demo recorded at the turn of the century.
