The Sound Remains the Flame

Just playing around with an open C6 tuning, which always makes me think of Led Zeppelin.

Them's The Pits

Educated clowns need no monkey suits to entertain the crowds.

Steam Stove

This is a song from the batch I recorded when I recorded Cold Dip and It Could Always Be Early. It has an absolutely ludicrous number of tracks for a song that has nothing but guitars and harmony, and I feel the need to just release it and see how others react to it. [more inside]

Piano

Hard to believe, but I've been here 3 years and 3 days. So, I just got a bunch of my earliest recordings from my dad's computer so I thought I'd post this one from when I was 17 to mark the occasion. Creatively titled "Piano" because of the extended use various E keys on my mom's piano. Definitely wear headphones, secret bonus track at the end. [more inside]

Pink Saturday

The horns in this bouncy lo-fi surf-garage number? Synthesized. But the off-key backup vocals? They're real.

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

Your Little One Way Street

Once again it's the Tomato Can Sanza (run through my trusty el-cheapo pitch shifter) in action, in another tune from my set at the 2010 Sengawa Jazz/Art Festival in Tokyo. Video at YouTube. [more inside]

Mask of Anarchy

With respect to Shelley. I wrote this song many years ago and recorded it on garage band tonight. It has meant a few things.

Napoleonic blues - second song posted

A song I wrote the lyrics for and worked up the melody and progression with the band. Me on ukulele, Jamie singing and on glockenspiel, Justin on guitar, Ella on cello, Tina hitting a a tin. This was recorded before Christmas, again not the most beautiful of recording quality but it gives you a sense of the band's fuller sound with the cello. Any feedback or critique appreciated as always. [more inside]

in an aisle seat

Greasy rock song about falling asleep in passenger seats. I could use some help with this. Ok, this is my first attempt at recording with real drums. While I'm happy to finally post something featuring my insanely talented little brother, Mike, I'm sorry to say that the drum recording I started out with was awful and I'm not sure I've made it any better. If anyone has some insight as to what can be fixed and how, or some tips on cheap/lo-fi/hopelessly inept home drum recording, I'd love to hear them. [more inside]

The Bottom Falls Out of the Clouds (demoriffic version)

cortex was kind enough to let me borrow the lyrics from his song "The Bottom Falls Out of the Clouds" (which he wrote for the first ever MeFi Music Challenge), and allow me to set them to new folky/acoustic/lo-fi music for this month's challenge. [more inside]

the vase (demo)

As a follow-up to this post, here is the demo I recorded for the song I posted a long time ago here. As before, the idea is to share something about the evolution of my songs for anyone who might care.

undulate underling (demo)

A demo that I later recorded and posted here. I'm posting this as a contribution along the lines of what others have done before me -- providing a window into my songwriting. Plus, I wouldn't be surprised if some prefer this version.

mandala

This collage, like this one, this one and this older one, has been mostly done through the use of a looping device and a guitar. And some ambient sounds too. Last part designed to propitiate meditation.

Window

A new Grandma Sylvias track. Sort of supposed to be a cross between "10:15 Saturday Night" and Delta blues. Features hesitant guitar playing, a burst of noise at the end, occasional whistling, and the usual tape hiss.

Mary Mary

A NSFW song about Mary (full of grace!) recorded in 2001 on a Tascam 4 track with an SP-202 and some ridiculous records and friends. From the same album as last year's Tryptophantastic. [more inside]

Antimony

Just a bit of a jangly, lo-fi, two-track, three-chord GBV meets Velvet Underground groove I got into, with a lead line over the top of the second half...

i will (radiohead cover)

Spur-of-the-moment lo-fi live cover of the Radiohead song off Hail to the Thief, to which I added a couple of equally rough overdubs and some reverb. The guitar is out of tune and poorly played, but the vocal melody tweaks are kind of fun. [more inside]

The power of passive aggression, in song form. Meant for listening loud in headphones, although what isn't?

8 More Miles to Louisville

More "americana" from that woodshed in Sweden. Recorded on a battered radio/cassette player in 1984(?) so its low fi. We called ourselves The Early Puritans on the occasions we actually got paid for a gig. [more inside]
