star shapes

This is a song i've been trying to put together for a year or two now. It uses my usual punk + x formula, where here, x = rawhide. The second half is big, noisy, and was tons of fun to make. I"m kinda fond of the lyrics Hope you enjoy. lyrics inside [more inside]

Have a Good Time

A waltz. From our album Planks of Grass, which is split between NYC and PDX songs, this one is NYC.

Living Ain't Worth Dying For

We were going for a John Cougar Mellencamp, Americana, country-rock thing. We have no interest in having a message, hence the stupid words. And we think vague singing about "Uncle Sam", "the war", "the factory", etc., is funny.

Needs

This is the first song I have ever written, on a dare for my husband's alt-country band. They liked it enough to record it. The handclaps make me laugh.

Tecumseh Valley

Townes Van Zandt was a talented man who wrote beautiful songs. I own some guitars and recording equipment and have a lot of spare time. Here I embarrass myself and denigrate Van Zandt's legacy by attempting to cover him. But I did add a string arrangement!

Going To Abilene

I am re-uploading this song. I wrote it a while back and recorded last weekend. I'm just learning to record, so the guitars are a little quiet. Tips would be very welcome! I'm stoked I get to re-post, since I spelled "Abilene" wrong last time.

Room at the End of the Hall

I had this vague melody a year or so ago, and at the time it was starting to become a song about riding my bike at night, drunk. I stuck it on the backburner until after I saw that Johnny Cash bio-pic, where they sing that June Carter duet "Time's a Wastin'" together, (which they never did in real life.) So then I got this idea to write a nice country duet like that, but instead of it being all happy and fresh-new-relationship-let's-consummate-it kinda thing, I wanted it to be about people that hated each other intensely. People that were sick and tired of seeing each other everyday for years and years. Then, for an added twist, I forced my lovely wife to sing the harmony part. We actually do like each other, though.

Everybody Lies a Little

This is a song by Hank Plank and the 2x4s, a band for which I sing, play guitar and write songs (like this one). It is a country band, and this is a country song. We have been a band for over 10 years now. Three of our members have a total of two children. This song is about infidelity and there is a pun involved.

Center of Gravity

More music from Chris Knott. He plays everything on this. I helped clean up the mix.

Abraham Holmes

More low quality, drunken Bluegrass with The Failsworth Pilgrims. Recorded the same night we recorded Diamond Joe - only slightly more sober. We always opened our shows with this one because it lends itself to soundchecking so well. Another rough mix, although we did go back later (drunker) and add the super-camp backing vocals

Meet Me Tonight At The Landfill

A big pop-y, jangly duet for the end of line.

Picking Black Raspberries

Came up with the main theme while picking black raspberries (also known as blackcaps) on my landlord's property, and finished composing it while suffering from a subsequent bout of poison ivy-induced rash. All tracks recorded at once, normalized but unmixed since my computer lacks adequate power for multi-track recording.

Drunken Brawl

I've got something

Recorded 7 or so years ago with a friend. It's missing something in the middle, but I like the way it disintegrates towards the end. I've no idea what genre it is, but I guess it shows influence from all the country/folk/lofi music I listen to.

Diamond Joe

Low quality stomping country music recorded drunk and presented here in it's straight-from-the-desk unmixed format. Came out pretty good. Nice rattly drums.
