I Love Tea Parties on the Ceiling

An old song based on this scene from Mary Poppins that I told melissa may I'd post a long time ago. [more inside]

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)

Chivalry

The second recording of my first visit to my school's media center. It's a song idea that I've been toying with for a long, long time. It's in 7/4... if you like that sort of thing.

Face The Music (Tony Danza)

I forget why Tony Danza was in this song title, but man have you ever seen that guy naked? This is another rockist song from my old band New Blind Nationals. It's got the three guitar attack but with a pulsing disco bass line underneath. I'd like to pretend that Franz Ferdinand stole their best ideas from me while I was sleeping.

Tanks and Planes

Another song from my old band, this one mixes balladry with a hardcore influence. Noteworthy because it's one of the few songs I named (after a misremembered Radio Shack game from the 80s that I never actually played).

Dissent

This arrangement still needs some embellishment, though I think it works okay as is. Probably one of my better vocal turns.

End of the Good Songs

Another jangly guitar thing in the style of say Built to Spill from my old band New Blind Nationals, this one would jokingly close sets on occasion (it also has one of my favorite bass parts)

Sturtevant By Night

Three guitars and a teensy bit of aggression in this song by my old band New Blind Nationals.

Cancer Patient

Mmm, 6/8 time... The vocal's less questionable than the other songs I've posted, but it is quite raspy in places because I ended up doing it in a couple takes after already having spent an hour two whipping the screamy bits of M.A.D. into shape, so my voice was a bit shot.

Used Up

A slow bouncy pop song from my old band, New Blind Nationals

Invocation

A long time ago, this song used to have words. They were super lame. Now it makes for a good guitar freak out. The drums were the first thing I ever made in Ableton Live. Doing the tempo changes at the end in Live was a pain (but I still love you, Live!). I think the drums sound a bit stiff and robotic (in a bad way), but it's still about the best I can do with real drum sounds. The vocal's a bit dodgy, but is Good Enough For Now.

Inarmed Decision

This is another song my old band. It's mixes ballad with a slight hardcore influence

A song by my last band - I played (bad) backup guitar. Recorded live at a show at my college
