What Child is This?

We all thought as hard as we could, to come up with a Christmas song that none of us hate, so we could do it semi-reverently, in a manner which at least resembles proper. It took so many takes to get it right that now we hate this song, too. [more inside]

From Olga

Arnaud wasn't just about the techno noise. He was an enormous fan of Laurie Andersen's Oh, Superman and had assembled a vocoder himself by taking apart the family's old tube TV. His mother Olga, who was not an educated woman, could not write without speaking aloud, and so one day when he heard her writing a letter, he snuck a microphone under the rickety table, fed it to his home-made recorder, and began to play along...

Into the Night

I was determined to get something into the mefi challenge this month, and what's better subject material than Dracula? Nothing. The mix isn't the best, but I've been playing with it too long, so I'd rather have it out there in the atmosphere. Why not.

November challenge entry. 60bpm, naturally. I offer no apologies for the darkness of this one. I hope the ticking isn't cheating re the vocals-only criterion. Lyric contains some strong language. [more inside]

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]

Woman Driving, Man Sleeping

This is a cover of a song by one of my favourite bands, Eels. It's pretty typical of the band - slightly sad and thoughtful, with a lot that we aren't told. I'd been planning to record this anyway, but then along came the Transpo challenge, and this seemed to fit very well. [more inside]
