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]

Theme from "Flood"
Why is the world about to fall in love all over again? Why will we be marching hand in hand? Why are the ocean levels still rising up? It's a brand new record for 2015: MetaFilter's cover of They Might Be Giants' classic album, Flood!
Subterranean Homesick Dylan
It's well known that Radiohead went to Bob Dylan for inspiration on the title of Subterranean Homesick Alien; it's less well known that they actually lifted the song structure and lyrics themselves from this rare demo recording. [more inside]
Chin Up, Cheer Up
This is a cover of a Ryan Adams song off his album Demolition. Unashamedly cheerful and bouncy, even if I have no idea what it's actually about. Video is here. [more inside]
Whiter Shade of Pale (cover)
Lofi acoustic waltz version: piano, drums, harmonica, solo vox. The song adapts surprisingly to 3/4 time. [more inside]
Grand Canyon (The Magnetic Fields)
A cover of the great song by The Magnetic Fields, recorded by myself but for a cover band that is beginning to form called the Magnetic Feel-'er-uppers. Features Bb stairwell guitar, whistling, and harmonica/harmony.
Power of Love
Thanks to two class cancellations due to ice storms in the Capital, I was able to arrange and record this Valentine's day treat. Imagine Huey Lewis, baritone, with a banjo.
