Solo Spanish guitar
A preview of a single we're releasing in a few weeks' time.
The Very Small Starship Rises into the Clear Sky
If you listen closely the five tones from Close Encounters of the Third Kind are almost in there.
Very pleased with how the key change at 1:30ish, just before the synthflute comes in, worked out
Slower, shorter and synthed up version of Cascade
This is one of my partner's songs, on which I played some of the instruments. It's full of wordplay. She recently uploaded her demo album, Nothing New, to Bandcamp. She's a smart and witty lyricist and a great guitarist (and ukulelist). And she plays reed instruments, which are a complete mystery to me.
Terrible Realization Music for an Imaginary, Low-Budge
The usual. Perhaps slightly more menacing.
Engine of Flowers
Solo Spanish guitar
December's release from Sredni Vashtar, staying with the slow, epic, moody sound for the time being.
It's time for more robo-jams! This song is procedurally generated and has eleven key changes. [more inside]
You Already Knew This
Clunky bluesy picking on a Spanish guitar for the first minute and then it opens up a lot.
Death Scene Music for an Imaginary, Low-Budget Cyberpunk Movie
Not had time for much recording lately - it's been a brutal couple of months. Here's another part of the soundtrack for a straight to video cyberpunk movie from the nineties. (apologies to the fellow mefite who I'm supposed to be doing a collab with - I'll be in touch I promise!)
A new single from us. [more inside]
Mildly frightening music for the mildly frightening time of year
One Day Those Tiny Wheels Will Start to Spin Again
Fast guitar, keys.
Dark sibling to my global smash hit Goldenhill
The latest release from our band. A sort of woozy, after hours lament for something lost.
It's a graptolites thing. Lots of guitars. Lots of effects. Some keys. All the rules broken.
More ambient guitar noodlings.
Babymoon to Minnesota
Another little guitar and cello song about dashed romantic babymoon plans. [more inside]
Shining Tor at Twilight
Broke my own rule and drenched this one in effects and keys. Very New Age. Not sure I approve of it.
With apologies to OMD.
A Small Kind of Triumph
Played on a plank with some taut wires
Twelve string acoustic miniature again!
12 String etc
12 string recorded on a phone as usual
A bad omens country song with my lowest drawly early morning vocals ever and a cool slippery guitar riff in the chorus. [more inside]
We had our first ultrasound where the baby really looks like a baby, and I of course had to write a song. Guitar is tuned way down (low string is an A). [more inside]
The Thing that Beats like a Cracked Bell
12 string acoustic etc
Bigass Pizza Blues
Trying out an exciting new piece of recording gear, the Strymon Iridium!!
Guitar, phone, still a bit clumsy.
A change of pace. [more inside]
Two Robots Loitering at Guitar Center
This is a generated guitar piece. [more inside]
Break Me In Half (demo)
My journey of writing pop punk songs from thirty years ago continues apace. This one started as a TikTok and then I banged out this demo in my living room today. I'm trying to get better at writing choruses and actually using my voice.
Lend Me Your Car (instrumental)
I'm doing February Album Writing Month, or FAWM. My music career has been mostly as a bassist and engineer. I play a ton of instruments. But I never really wrote songs. Once in a blue moon when inspired. But I wrote one in six hours tonight. Tracking vocals and guitar feedback tomorrow. But here's the instrumental version, because I'm too excited not to post it anywhere. Is it a masterpiece? No. Is it good? No. But I had zero inspiration and dug in anyway. And I made something! So go me.
Using my friend's old Roland SoundCanvas to get the mellotron-esque string sounds and the Yamaha SLG-100 for the acoustic vibes. It records remarkably well, though definitely not the same as the real thing. Little bit of fretless bass action on here as well!! [more inside]
I sort of learned how to fade out a song on LogicPro. [more inside]
Little song my wife and I recorded this morning on an iPhone. Guitar and cello [more inside]
The final song on our new release, the Red Light EP [more inside]
All I Have To Do Is Dream
A quick finger style arrangement of the Everly Brothers' classic for baritone guitar. [more inside]
Cover of "Anabelle" by Gillian Welch. Bass, guitar, accordion, lots of reverb. [more inside]
A Spot of Blue
I bought a new USB microphone, and this is the first song I've recorded with it. Feels lovely to not record onto my phone. [more inside]
Just having a play outside a couple summers ago
The Let Go
Another request from my three-year-old grandson, this is Elle King's "The Let Go." Video.
Expanded version of this song, but this time we're in control and not in control. Both my mother and my wife's mother planted our placentas under trees, in my wife's case a Japanese maple in West Seattle. I don't know if this was a 90s trend among certain parents, or if it's still a thing or not. [more inside]
We're trying to release a song a month this year and are kicking things off with 'Ten'. [more inside]
Merry Little Christmas
Yeah, it's the theme song for Holidays 2020.
Unexpectedly optimistic instrumental. [more inside]
