Another song from my newish free EP of quirky electronic cheese, "Part Time Drum Machine." I sort of picture a mechanical sunrise operated by heavy robots intent on bringing light joy. You know. [more inside]
I wasn't at all happy with the first version of this challenge track that I posted. So I redid it, and now it makes me feel all sunshiney inside. [more inside]
This is the second of two summersongs... this one is my attempt to shake off the summertime blues and write something genuinely hopeful, complete with a spoken intro and healthy helpings of cheese and bubblegum all round. [more inside]
This is what happens when the whole band is present, overdubbing together--and you're still stupid, but now there's one more of you! [more inside]
Part two of the epic Cheese trilogy. [more inside]
Originally by man vs sun, recorded while just dicking around with a microphone. [more inside]
Exactly what we need right now. [more inside]
Because I have no shame, I have used an accordion to cover Journey. [more inside]
Just a silly cover song.
I realized yesterday it'd been a while since I'd posted anything, so I dug through the Garage Band archives last night, and found this ditty I tossed together a couple years ago. I got the original groove by taking a pre-fab midi drum track, and assigning the notes to a clavinet patch, and it grew from there. It started out cheesy, so I gave in to the cheese, and threw in some lounge organ. All the percussion is GB midi crap, but that's me on the bass, the piano and the Hammond Organism. (Warning: IANAHOP) The vibe kinda suggested the title. Grab your smoking jackets, ladies and gents!
An unapologetically cheesy Michael/Janet Jackson style 90s epic pop song. I just got a new main synthesizer (Yamaha Motif XS) and per tradition, when I get a new piece of gear, I write a new "demo song" with it. Everything you hear is coming out of this insane keyboard in one pass, no external processing! DON'T hit play if you're opposed to sugary Teddy Riley style swing, you'll be nauseated. I'm an equal opportunity nostalgist! :(
This is a short theme I composed while at the grocers.
This might be the first song that directly references a question in the green. I recorded this a few years back as a present to my mum. (The talented Mr Matt Evans added the scritchy-scratchiness.) This is the song as I remember my mum singing it to me. The only difference is that my Mum sang it in a lilting Scouse, whereas I tend to intone it pretentiously. BTW: My question in Ask still stands. I'd love it if anyone knew this song - or anything like it. I fully intend, one day, to illustrate the song as a children's book, sell millions and retire to a caribbean island to kill myself slowly with daiquiris. You have been warned.
