This is the last in the RPM 08 songs that I have done. I came down with the flu this last week, and work the next few days. Therefore, I have fallen short of the goal. Enjoy my failure! [more inside]

Secret Book (Vocal Mix)

This is a new version of Secret Book, of which I originally posted an instrumental version here. On the new mix, my wife Lori sings beautifully, and I wail a bit at the end. [more inside]

Weekend

Another quick song for RPM08. Not so happy with the mix, but I like the way the song turned out.

Ghosts and Robots

Or "Hooray for the Humans" a meditation in Post-Apocalyptic Folk-Rock! Every now and then, someone favorites (or unfavorites) this little line, which I dropped as a comment on a great post about the world after humans. It's actually the opening line to a song I've been mean to post forever. Here's the cleanest version I've got so far. [more inside]

Chester

This is the intro to a song my band has played live a few times. Live, I do it with loops, although it's not quite this developed. This is another Pro Tools experiment, thanks to the wonderful Swem Library Media Center.

I'm a piece of hell, burning like a champ. I'm in love with you. I don't know exactly what you're supposed to do about it. (it's a touch noisy) [more inside]

gone

I think this is one of the catchier songs I've come up with in a while, though I never seem to be a good judge of that. At any rate, it's a short and simple track about intense love gone missing... or something like that. [more inside]

in memories

A collaboration with non-mefite Riadsala, who sometimes records bass for me. This is a pretty strange track, with a lot of effects going on, with a weirdish tempo change into the chorus which is backed by something in the vein of guitar shredding. [more inside]

King of Flesh and Bone

The first mostly completed track in a larger project my wife Lori and I are working on under the name Tangemeenie, called "The Gilded Age." It's obliquely about the romantic (and so often foolhardy) impulse to knock down giants just to watch them fall. Lyrics inside. [more inside]

star shapes

This is a song i've been trying to put together for a year or two now. It uses my usual punk + x formula, where here, x = rawhide. The second half is big, noisy, and was tons of fun to make. I"m kinda fond of the lyrics Hope you enjoy. lyrics inside [more inside]

Christmas Time for Girls and Boys

This is the first thing I've recorded in awhile. It's a song about Christmas that I wrote for Surfjam Stevens. I recorded it in my bedroom with a little help from my friends. [more inside]

Reno Dakota

A Magnetic Fields cover I recorded recently. I've been working on my singing for a while, and I was mostly wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to go from here in improving it? Any other feedback is also welcome, of course.

Burnsauce

Sort of a kiss-off song. Play this after you've been dumped via email by some silly girl that you should have never been messing around with, anyway.

Chordish Song

Another song I've recorded this summer, guitar, voice, phrase sampler (you can hear the click triggering the chorus here). As always, critique, etc - I'm totally open to suggestions and ideas as far as where (and whether) to develop these ideas

Bass

This is sort of the summer culmination of a song that me and some of my friends have built up. This version is solo (all of the extra 'tracks' are live loops) Oh, and critique the hell out of it!

The Marching Glum

Navelgazer and I are in a Brooklyn-based indie-rock band called The Olivers. This past weekend, we recorded 7 songs for our new album. This one is called The Marching Glum. Please let us know what you think - we are curious as to how people will like our new material. (previously : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

jim gets lost on purpous

jaunty little ditty about poor ol' jim, cuckolded soon after moving to boston with his finance. not entirely sure where this came from except that i'm very very very often lost in boston. usual stuff: buzz guitars, fake drums, computer blips and me shrieking like a dolt. enjoy!

snake

A quirky but perhaps oddly serious song inspired by that old Snake video game, written and recorded for the mefi music challenge.

Great Big Kiss Off

An early song by The Action Items, which was usually just me, but on this song also includes dainty dave on the drums. Posted in response to the song that is hopefully still immediately preceding this one.

log

This is an old song, not written for the mefi music challenge water theme, but the lyrics kind of fit, so I decided to upload it. I actually wrote this waltz about having a cold, but it sounds very "oceanic."

Hey settle down

I always hear people describe indie rock as jangly, and I'm not sure what they mean, but this sounds jangly to me. There are 8 different instruments on this track and I play everything except drums. So there.

Sister

First song ever written, and completed. Written/recorded in 2 hours flat. Fishing for feedback.

Sinaloan Milk Snake Song

A lo-fi cover of a lo-fi song by the Mountain Goats, from Zopilote Machine. Made in GarageBand, vocals recorded with built-in mike. I'm brand-new at this, so I welcome technical advice about how the mixing, recording, use of loops, etc. can be improved.

in formal cat

This is much more the style I usually work in. Poppy, punky, and fuzzy. Maybe it's just because of the low grade equipment I use, but my songs always turn into big saturated buzz-fests. At least with this one, it was no accident. As usual, recorded by myself with guitars and robots. Hope you enjoy. Lyrics inside.

23rd Century

Here's a track from my album about wanting to be a robot. I figure lots of you folks can probably relate. My band is currently touring the east coast, with dates in VA, NC, WV, MD, PA, NJ, NY, CT, and VT. Details inside!

Here Lies a Lonely Man

Under an archway, cross a cobblestone floor through an old wooden door. There's an apartment, and someone lives there, but does anyone care?
