Highway 20

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]

Heart's in the Choirbox

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]

The Apokakodex Opens: The Desecration Of Heaven Pt 1: A Call To Arms

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]

Mother South

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]

Mansion on the Hill

Cortex has given me a taste of MuFi collaboration, and I like it. This is a simply acoustic country gospel ballad about sin and possible redemption. Anyone is welcome to download it and contribute. [more inside]

No Time to Cry

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]

Loves Deep Mineshaft

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.
