Balkan Red Alert Part II

Just sneaking this one under the wire for the Hallowe'en challenge. A thrown-together palate cleanser from the recent power pop -- a piece of Eastern European-flavored surf about the scariest thing I can think of. I actually gave myself the shivers when I was putting together the ending so it's probably worth sticking around for that. [more inside]

No One Lives Forever

On this Day of the Dead, I bring you this festive reminder: no matter where you run, no matter where you hide, the Grim Reaper will catch you. He'll also catch your cat, he'll catch your dog, he'll catch your goldfish; he's gonna get us all. [more inside]

Bed of Nails

Recorded in response to the way we punish women who fight back against abusive partners. there are many examples of Women speaking up in opposition to violence by partners... but in My experience it seems men often try to argue (ignoring the facts and statistics) that "women are 'just as' abusive" [more inside]

Old Friend

It's been way, way, way too long since I posted any music here, or in fact recorded anything. Anyway, it's always rough starting back up, but always a little interesting. Here's a song I was planning on submitting for the monthly challenge, but apparently I am unable to make scary music. [more inside]

Vampire Dub No. 13

I don't know what's scarier: re-imagining your favorite early-60s Halloween novelty record sounds as Garageband "dub," a full MIDI trumpet section, or the slug people who overtake the vampires late in the song. (You'll know it when you hear it.)

Raven (Do As Infinity cover)

Does covering the ending theme of a Japanese horror movie count as a scary song for this month's challenge? Well, I'm posting it anyway. The only thing scary is thinking I can singing like Van Tomiko.

Looking at Witches

I am re-posting this at the suggestion of another user, this time with lyrics included. This and others are available here. Looking at Wiches Some say they're having a pretty good time And they're working on quitting this town. Everything's working out fine for me. You should see the way I get around. Like a dry drunk Down at the mall. Looking at watches, He feels something crawl Out of a memory He has of a girl. Looking at witches, Down at the mall. And ain't we got friends that are long ago gone and that's all that we want them to be? Nothing but nothing And nothing alone Could make them mean nothing to me. Sometimes in winter you get to go home. You get to dress darkly. You hang up the phone. You walk home from Pittsburgh With one thing in mind. Sometimes in winter, you leave things behind. And we miss when you sing Those old country songs. We get them for free around here, but we don't keep them long. Because we can't keep them long.

Demented Children's Songs

A nightmarish take on children's music. I always imagine myself stuck in a carnival funhouse being chased around by evil clowns when I listen to this. From 1995 and one of the first songs I ever wrote. Some completely out of control layering towards the end! [more inside]
