New recording of an old song with the following Garageband synths: "hip hop kit", "pop flute" and "shimmering harpsichord" (IIRC). Song about good friends who have, by now, all moved away. I'd love any thoughts on this. [more inside]
This has been the worst winter in 20 years where I am. It's still snowing horizontally as I speak. So I wrote a summer song as a big middle finger to the damn cold. [more inside]
A sort of sixties-ish jangly folk-pop demo with a couple of synthy touches.
A song by (my band) Freelove Fenner about handicrafts and labour. Features layered guitar, farfisa, bass, drums and my reverbed voice. Recorded on an Otari 1" 8-track.
Epic 60s janglepop meets Northern Soul, final version of the tune I've been evolving here and on The Music Incubator. All based on a little piano riff, and therefore my August challenge entry too. [more inside]
Final mix of the song I posted a couple of days ago incorporating a couple of changes suggested by uncleozzy. [more inside]
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]
Back to the 4-track cassette box. This was a breakthrough song for me. [more inside]
A 1991 recording of one of my songs, recorded at Egg Studios in Seattle. I'm not quite sure what I think of this one, all these years later. It's a love song, of sorts. [more inside]
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.
