The Church's Desolation (and Old Hundred)

Guitar, banjo, and vox arrangement of the shapenote tune, The Church's Desolation, number 89 in The Sacred Harp. A quick fingerstyle arrangement of Old Hundred (49 on the top) was tacked onto the front. [more inside]

Shotgun

The only good thing about having a sore throat is that for a brief window of time I can hit some low notes. I was too sick today to concentrate on any real work but this was lying around half-finished so I took it another quarter of the way. Despite the title, this is not a murder ballad but a song about the day I realized Ms. unSane might (eventually) become Mrs unSane. Features a totally fake Hawaiian guitar, one of the rare moments where my surf playing has spilled over into one of my songs. [more inside]

Don't Fool Me (2010 version)

Today's espresso-driven shot of melodrama power-pop. Originally written around 1995, I think I finally nailed how it was supposed to sound. [more inside]

The Pink Raincoat (studio version)

Sometimes songs come easy and sometimes they come hard. Everything about this one was hard. The final, sweated over, version of a song I posted a rough demo of a few weeks ago. Hopefully the results are worth it! [more inside]

God Only Knows

Just something we did for fun this weekend. I can only take credit for the singing and half of the snaps.

Blackbox Blues (big ghost version)

My band's rendition of this tune, which I posted a while back. It was fun condensing the 9 track arrangement down for a three-piece. Worth the long intro. [more inside]

Tie in the Lines

A quick song after a very long day, and the first song to end up in the pristine new pages of my new notebook.

Bring Us Your Leader

Restraint (Ex-Machina Mix)

Previously. This mix replaces some of the sampled guitar parts with real guitars, and the piano is played live. Once again I'm using Guitar Rig 3 LE for post-processing. The drones are still Reason samples. The drums were replaced with Battery 4. Same vocal track.

I had a few hours to myself this morning and wrote this song. [more inside]

What I Deserve (Ex-Machina Mix)

I recently bought a new computer, which allows me to use Guitar Rig 3 LE that came bundled with Cakewalk SONAR without taxing my CPU. So I re-recorded one of my songs with actual guitars. [more inside]

Norwegian Wood

When I'm in a prolonged songwriting funk - which I am now - it can sometime take a cover of a favorite tune to snap me out of it. Let's hope this does. [more inside]

Guitar, Melodica, Instrumental Happiness

After too much time spent noodling, I'm trying to make actual tunes with some semblance of structure. Today's attempt was fun! What does it remind you of? [more inside]

prayer song

ecstatic punk_metal love song with stereo distorted bass, country inflected vocals, and a few stolen lyrics. Kinda a follow up to this song. [more inside]

Summer's Calling

This is the second of two summersongs... this one is my attempt to shake off the summertime blues and write something genuinely hopeful, complete with a spoken intro and healthy helpings of cheese and bubblegum all round. [more inside]

Spacetime

A little progish - lots of analog synth, lots of interesting sounds, harmonies, counterpoint, a little odd meter, hopefully pretty catchy chorus, and one of the more obscure lyrics I've written (lyrics inside)... lots of stuff! [more inside]

Bring the Chase

Guitar and synth rock, with a certain whiff of the 70s about it, and a comparatively laid back chorus that I'm pretty happy with. Lyrics inside. [more inside]

You Can't Ignore My Techno

Shortish instrumental, born out of me dicking around in Garage Band and trying to break out of my indie-rock rut.

Millimeters of Mercury (featuring Lanthanide Contraction) — Bulletproof Breakbeat

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

Cover of the Ewan McColl classic, at the original speed for once. So I know covering a classic like this is pretty dumb -- how you gonna compete with Johnny Cash, Peggy Seeger and Roberta Flack? But I was really curious about something I read, so I wanted to try an experiment. [more inside]

Eyeless (Slipknot cover)

This is what Slipknot would sound like if they were only one guy in his bedroom and didn't yell so much.

Back on my Back Again

Another slice of 1995 Big Star/Television influenced indie ephemera from my 4-track cassette box. I still really love this guitar riff and the herky jerky power pop stuff at the end of the chorus. A song about not wanting someone to feel bad for dumping you. When I first heard Sloan, I thought 'man, they stole my sound' although really we both stole Velvet Crush's. [more inside]

Hey Google, My Town's in the Lake

For the last two months, people trying to look up Randolph Vermont on Google Maps have been directed to a dot in the middle of Lake Champlain, 100 miles from the town's actual location. I've tried pretty much everything to get them to fix it [sad details]. Now I'm trying this. [more inside]

Seventeen Below (Electric Version)

Someone suggested I re-record this with a heavier treatment. So I threw the kitchen sink at it. Guitars, guitars, more guitars, a cello section, some HEAVY guitars, harmonies and a bonus weather forecast. Don't let the quiet beginning fool you. [more inside]

Darker Shade of Blue (Electric version)

Amped up version of a song I posted a few days ago. Gnarly guitars, Hammond organ, sweet harmonies, in a Television / Big Star / Matthew Sweet frame of mind. [more inside]
