this is why

More of a slow-building groove than a "song." Probably recorded about 10 years ago, I honestly can't remember. [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]

Another from the waste-bin of demos that never went anywhere. Gauging from the effects unit, I'd say 1996; at least pre-1997.

You Still Look Like You Did Before

Never Gonna Stop

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]
