Millimeters of Mercury — S2

Slightly dubstep-inspired, named for the closest star to the supermassive black hole at the center of the galaxy (S2). The star is a young star and the fastest-moving massive object in the galaxy, and by metaphor, the song expresses the hubris and beauty of youth.

Playing with Garageband's guitar effects. Lots of distortion to cover up my lazy fingers. [more inside]

Turn Away

Poppy-ska song I wrote a couple years ago about being afraid to ask a girl out. (I did, eventually, but not in the song). [more inside]

come careening (demo)

This is the demo I recorded for this song posted earlier. I slapped some kind of distortion effect over it to approximate the feel I wanted in the final version. Although it's too hazy-sounding and the vocals are nearly unintelligble, I really love a lot of things about this recording. It sounds like some kind of important uncovered secret to me. Anyway, this post is part of an "evolution of my songs" series I started here and here.

Staring at a VDU

A VDU is, of course, a video display unit. A song about one of the things the Web has made: Millions of people who sit all day long staring at a screen. [more inside]

Facebook Profile

Although not strictly part of this month's challenge, I would like to point out that this song, which deals with how our social media lives on after we die, is heavily inspired by "Waiting for My Man." [more inside]

come careening

Layers of soft guitar distortion with pseudo-indian instruments thrown in, under a falsetto vocal over a deeper background vocal going through a guitar amp. I'm kind of proud of the lyrics, which are about staying true. [more inside]

But When Cindy Dances

The first song I ever wrote, dating back to 1986. A pop song about a real Cindy and a possibly invented dance, sung in a fragile and especially twee manner. Part of my Old Songs project. [more inside]

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.
