Another older one... hoping to get some new stuff finished soon but here is a fun track in the meantime!
A fun composite/mishmash of song ideas (and some narration) originally created in response to a sound track idea request for an eccentric little animation a friend of mine was trying to get going. Not sure if the animation will ever come about but here is what I put together for it.
part of a fun summer jam with my friend Yukon John on vocals
I had a bit of fun with this: it's about a relationship gone wrong. I believe that the dual bass part is rhythmically interesting. Double bass and synth bass rhythmically intertwine and are coupled with a synth trumpet. There may be some Brian Eno influences a la The Drop. My album is available for $5 download at CD Baby: The Dividing Range. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/theseedsofautumn
So I was reviewing my song posting history and realized most of my stuff is kind grim. Thought it would be fun to try something a little happier. [more inside]
this is a tune I wrote over 11 years ago. Ive posted it once as "Marra Wanna be like me" The Version is a rare 4:19 mix. [more inside]
This is a little something I cooked together earlier this summer for the fun of it. I never finished it, but thought it might be fun to share anyway. [more inside]
Another uke tune. I really love the old novelty songs and this is my little contribution to that genre. [more inside]
Ive ran a few gaming servers. A couple years back I was running a Counter Strike Source Jetpack Gun Game server. I needed a Connect song or Welcome/Join song so I recorded this. [more inside]
My brand new song, just written and recorded on 9/3/09. [more inside]
Get your tongue off my face. [more inside]
A nice summertime dub-reggae-esque jam featuring samples of Mungo Jerry and squealing synths. [more inside]
and you're invited! [more inside]
This was a song I wrote about a fictional women that I didnt really meet. In fact I havent ever stopped in New Orleans I may have drove through along time ago. This song is one of three done at a studio. The drummer was way to uptight for my music. He kept saying he could play john bonham solo's and Im thinking this isnt really the place for Mr Bonham. I need Ringo here. Anyway they over recorded drums with alittle crackle. I had a friend do the bass and lead style playing and he held it togther enough to make it listenable. Thats when I went home studio after seeing the money I could throw away. Anyway this song was before the hurricane period as well by a year Id say. I just really wrote it cause I wanted something fresh for the studio and upbeat. Anyway Listen
Just a song I wrote in while living in Austin Tx. *Warning* to listeners I do make use of that four letter word But I feel its in the taste of emotion that came with the feeling from writing this tune. The song wrote itself in about five mins as I just spit out the words. It wasnt till years later that I recorded it and it hasnt ever really changed in format or wording as I did try a cleaner version but as I said the emotions cry for the dreaded "F" word. I used to play on the streets down on 6th street alot just for fun. Anyway The message is we are really all the same and we could probably all do good if someone wasnt telling us how bad we are all the time. Lou Reed Once Said " Critics are like assholes everyone has one" The song is writtin around that thought. Please take no Offense I mean none its just a feeling put to music.
This is a pointless instrumental cover version of Meatbomb's recent a capella (one extreme to the other), Blah blah blah for the MeFi Music challenge, so now you can sing along to the tune*! [more inside]
First song off of the new People Will Blink record. This song was written about 3 years ago and went through many transformations before it began to sound... well... listenable. When we played this song live, Azeem used a vocoder during the bridge. He forgot it in California when we recorded, so we used a clarinet, melodica, and recorder in it's place. [more inside]
An OK local radio station is having a contest for "Jingles" about specific characters on their show. "Chris Boyer" races cars, wears Hawaiian print shirts and is Homophobic. This is my submission.
Just some bass, korg sample drums, some vocs and a really bad English accent. Enjoy!
It's getting to be time to put together the Christmas mix tapes! This was recorded by a band I was in in 1991. Our new guitar player, Michael Cox, brought us the song so he sings lead. I'm one of the girl background singers (heard best toward the end) and might be playing a tiny bit of guitar (I don't remember for sure), and I know I played some jingle bells near the end of the track (What Christmas song doesn't have bells?). It's a goofy singalong sort of holiday tune. I like it a lot. I wish I had a better quality copy, though. We recorded this song along with another batch of demos, in time to get airplay on KNDD's local music Christmas show that year... then promptly broke up before even completing all the tracks as a band, though I went in to the studio later to finish. C'est la vie.
