Boots

A guitar, a buzzing tube amp, a me. Some clapping. From a new collection of songs called Cake Dome, written and recorded entirely in the 29 days of February, 2012. I made a video, which you can watch on Vimeo or YouTube.

Elbow

The first completed song out of the 10 I'm supposed to have done by the end of the month for the RPM Challenge. Don't think I'm going to make it at this rate. [more inside]

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 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.

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]

Sorry You Died

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]

Meanest Words

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]

Not Nice

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

I don't know what this is; kind of a pseudo-jugband, neo-bluegrass-ish, Hee-Haw with a whiney singer. [more inside]

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]
