My first deliberately-written country music song. Or is it western? Or roots music? Can't tell, as I cheered for the winning side in the Civil War. ;-) You can detect a few inadvertent influences, to be sure, but let me know what you think. [more inside]
A song I wrote for my now-defunct band, The Whoreshoes. [more inside]

Another country song that I recorded for my dad for Christmas. [more inside]
I recorded a few favorite country songs as a Christmas present for my dad. This is one of them. [more inside]
A cover of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire." [more inside]
A shell (?) of a country song, but also my first try with Melodyne (an Auto-tune-esque plugin). Combo music talk/listen: how does the pitch correction sound? [more inside]
More from the woodshed Jimmy Rogers we liked. The Early Puritans go country. [more inside]
More Black Metal satirization. This time I attacked a different Black Metal cliche, the call-to-arms track demanding the execution of Christians. So NSFW on that level, I guess.. [more inside]
This was part of a musical satire project, lampooning Black Metal. It's too easy to make fun of the dress, , so I instead went with a slightly more conceptual satire.. I covered widely regarded classic Black Metal tracks, as Country songs. This track is a cover of Satyricon's seminal Black Metal milestone, "Mother North (original)" [more inside]
bittersweet sturm und drang [more inside]

Just added a little vocal harmony, is all.

MEFI MUSIC CHALLENGE July [more inside]
Inspired by the recent MeFi post. Also, first song upload. Hi!
MeFi Music Challenge, Lyrics Flavor. Toe-tappin' old-timey country happy blues. [more inside]
My first new song in quite a long time, recorded in as deliberately lo-fi and distorted a manner as possible, because that's what I like. I'm now 40, so it's time for me to start singing country. Therefore, I have written a murder ballad. [more inside]
Part of my Old Songs project, where I record song I wrote years or even decades ago. This song tells of the disasterous introduction of the Hawaiian Can Toad to Australia, for some reason. [more inside]
My version of the Jimmy Webb song
I added a guitar accompaniment to By The Grace of God's gorgeous a cappella country waltz. [more inside]
Acoustic number in the works, just looking for some advice & feedback about this song (see description) [more inside]
Loves Deep Mineshaft is an odd little song recorded in a couple of hours on Thursday afternoon. I make the music and Ron makes the words. I've been playing music for a long time in bands and solo and Ron has been getting his writing published and doing spoken word spots at clubs in New York for years. This is the result of glueing his words and his harmonica to my playing everything else. It comes out a little bit like the last song of the night at David Lynch's favourite bar and I'd really like to know whether other people think it's any good. I tend to like stuff that sounds screwed up like this but I'm not sure anyone else does.
