When the Curtains of Night

I'm happy to present my collaboration with not_on_display: this is our version of a neat little tune that was included in The American Songbag (a 1927 folk song collection by Carl Sandburg); the song there was itself derived from a late 19th-century song by William S. Hays. [more inside]

The Leaving of Liverpool

I had a great time collaborating with billiebee on a cover of this traditional folk song/sea shanty. The goal was to record a simple arrangement that was different from the more lively covers out there -- to borrow billiebee's phrase, a gentler version. I'm hoping our rendition highlights the lovely melody of the song. [more inside]

Dirty Deeds (Done at Market Rate)

I've always thought it'd be extra cool to make a collaborative album like the Postal Service- the band, not the government entity- except, instead of snail-mailing recordings back and forth, you could just trade mixdown mp3s via email. This is a track I can't seem to come up with a vocal melody for. Any takers?

ndYouandMeandYouandMeandYo (In A Heartbeat)

I think I've mentioned elsewhere that I'm a bit tired of working on my own. So....here's an idea I'm offering up for collab. This demo sounds very '80's to me - like something a big-hair ponce-rock outfit like Cutting Crew would have knocked out. "I Just Died On My Arse Tonight" was I think one of their biggies. Uugghh. We need to kill that off pretty sharpish... [more inside]

Cook, Peary, and Byrd

Here is my entry into the "Educational Song" challenge from March of last year. (THIS IS AS FAST AS I WORK, PEOPLE.) It is a searing exposé / sing-along waltz that reveals the truth about early arctic exploration. My dad plays trumpet, my friend Jessica plays trombone and sings, my wife Sue sings just a little bit, and MeFi's own dubold and Pecinpah sing as well. Lyrics and (yes!) citations are inside.

Additional Small Things

Leave Her, Johnny

Here is an entry for the January Challenge! It is by me and rangefinder 1.4. It is a cover of "Leave Her, Johnny," a traditional sea shanty that was sung by sailors at the end of a voyage, as they were preparing to leave their ship ("her" in the song). [more inside]

Half Empty Waltz

MeFi's own es_de_bah takes over vocal duties on this one -- I didn't feel like I was the right person to sing it, and so I spent some time going through the "Music Collaborator" Mefi Wiki page until I found someone who would be. (It was his excellent song "a perfect preservative" which made me consider him in the first place.) In addition, my dad plays trumpet; I play Magnus chord organ, flute, and interesting percussion. It's a waltz. [more inside]

The Accursed Hat

My take on Jofus's cowboy epic. Although I think a song like this demands additional production that I am not able to provide. By all means, feel free to download it, add whip cracking and horse hooves and banshee moans, or swirling guitars, or whatever else might epic this bad boy up.

in memories

A collaboration with non-mefite Riadsala, who sometimes records bass for me. This is a pretty strange track, with a lot of effects going on, with a weirdish tempo change into the chorus which is backed by something in the vein of guitar shredding. [more inside]

I Shine

CollaborationFilter: I had this song I could never considered finished because it sounded dreadful in my voice. Then I discovered Metafilter Music and here I discovered chococat. Like pretty much everyone else who heard his music, I was blown away. And so I asked him if he would help me out with the song. Cool guy he is, he did. And this is the result.
