Another Nirvana cover I recorded a while back and just remembered about today. MIDI keyboard + vocals. It was fun to see if I could cover this song without the signature riff.
Cover of Radiohead's "Karma Police" for the major/minor challenge. [more inside]
Well, this is my cheater because Let Down is my song. But it is turning out to be difficult, so I've been working up a few others to play when I get pissed off at Let Down. [more inside]
Just what the world needs: another cover of a hit pop song by a white guy with his guitar. [more inside]
Here is a cover of the song (Tumble) in the Wind by Jackson C. Frank. I was drawn to this song by the way he is ostensibly singing to someone, but it feels distinctly like there really isn't anyone he is singing to. Piano, reversed piano, attempt at falsetto, ramshackle percussion.
So, I like ben folds, I've been sitting on a great piano arrangement of this forever, and I can't focus enough to attend to the pile of writing I've fallen behind on. But if I'm creating something that can be shared, is it REALLY slacking? This is a cover of one of my favorites from Supersunnyspeedgraphic, the LP, "Songs of Love".
Another cover song (you seem to respond better to those, anyway :P ), this time something as unoriginal as Evanescence (I know, all the emo kids are doing it...) Yet again, a recording from my vocal exam last week. [more inside]
I love Randy Newman. Along with the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, and Cat Stevens, he was the first musician I fell in love with as a child, thanks to my parents. I've covered him once before on MeFi. Now I'm doing it again. [more inside]
My Velvet Underground homework. There's some backing falsetto in here and some piano and stuff. [more inside]
Programmed, recorded and edited today. This song appears on Robin Holcomb's self-titled album from 1990. It's got some odd key changes and a lot of clashing notes. [more inside]
A cover of the Eels tune from Electro-Shock Blues, a wonderful pop opera.
Recorded live in my living room on Monday night, the debut episode of this four-song, one-take podcast is my way of making sure I DO something with the piano in the corner. Each song fits a certain theme (this episode, it's Tom Waits covers), and there are no re-takes or edits allowed. It's the Pianimal -- and it's ALIVE! [more inside]
With piano ivories, shimmering vocals and far too much sincerity, I have transmographied the Beastie Boys' energetic party-chant into a mostly miserable, quasi-beautiful, semi-epic, completely human piano ballad. [more inside]
Decided to whip out my slightly-more-old-school-than-usual electronic instrument for some nostalgia. Saddest theme, Memories of Green, and Ocean Palace Theme.
