Demo of a new song! This is the first one I've written on my own (outside my band) in a long time. Recorded in my living room this morning.
You just want an excuse to dance. KOLN • Bandcamp • Lyrics This is the penultimate entry in a series of outtakes that did not make it onto the album "Damn Poets", to be released soon. (It is implied that the tracks on the album are superior to these outtakes. This is true.) If you like my songs, I would very much appreciate if you'd consider leaving your email. You will not be spammed; you will be among the first to find out when Damn Poets drops.
I've started a blog on which I post a new song a day...this is the third one (last Wednesday). That's the story behind this song. It's about trying to hold on to a time and place (or at least that's what I said in the post). [more inside]
Won't you join us on a small journey? [more inside]
This is as personal as I get when not improvising. [more inside]
A submission to the unofficial "Seven Nation Army" challenge. [more inside]
My recent music contributions here have maybe not really supported this statement, but: more than anything else, I like making catchy bubblegum pop songs. This is one of those. Autoharp, marimba, and a whole lot of new wave synth. See inside for tangential MetaFilter connections! [more inside]
Another Geese song! I wrote this song a little more than ten years for the woman who eventually became my wife. My original recording was simply me and a guitar, neither sounding particularly good. I recently re-recorded it, and, well, hear what happened. For more, you can go to my music site (forgive my self-promotion). Enjoy!
This is a little something I did (obviously unfinished) that I'd liek to get some reaction for. Any thoughts? It's a pretty straightforward power pop/rock song, complete with ahhs, claps, shakers, and tambourines. Rawk.
While my friend Beth is in town, we're recording a bit (as The Shrimp Boat Pirates. We just finished this one last night. Hohner-Gruhn guitar, Fender Stratocaster, Casio keyboard, kitchen utensils, Audio-Technica microphone, and GarageBand.
