There's A Guest In My Hose (NSU Mix)

Remix. Faster - varispeeded to within an inch of its spectral life. New drums. Modest EQ tweak.

Just in under the wire for September's "transpo" Challenge theme.

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]

I'm the Scapegoat (But I Don't Eat Garbage)

Gyrophonia goes burlesque...or perhaps the other way 'round. I'm not quite certain which. [more inside]

After the Summer Has Gone

I thought this month's "Summer Song" challenge would be a slam dunk -- breezy, fluffy bubblegum! I can do that! I regret to report that Things Did Not Go As Planned. [more inside]

Summer's Calling (remix)

I wasn't at all happy with the first version of this challenge track that I posted. So I redid it, and now it makes me feel all sunshiney inside. [more inside]

This is the Summer

The first of two songs for this month's Summersong challenge -- a singalong powerpop anthem about incest, sunburn, and lost love on an English council estate. [more inside]

Jasmine & Seashells

You know that rush of memory that happens sometimes with a certain scent or sound? I've tried to evoke that through writing a song within a song. Not for me to judge whether it's worked or not.... [more inside]

Like a Virgin

So JaiMahodara and I threw this cover together for the challenge last night. Last minute, and a little unrefined. But we had fun. [more inside]

Dang Me

Woke up this morning with a sore throat and my voice about an octave lower than usual so I figured it was time to record a cover of Roger Miller's despicable novelty hit that was #1 on the country charts the day I was born. Despicable because it's a song written from the perspective of a complete cunt. So I brought some self loathing to the table, along with the sore throat and my complete inability to play blues guitar.

Sugar, Sugar

On the day that I was born (in San Diego), the Archies' quintessential bubblegum pop song was a #1 hit (in England). This is a pretty straightforward version, although the guitars and bass and drums have all been replaced with marimbas and glockenspiels. [more inside]

Na Na, Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye) [Steam cover]

If, at a meetup, bondcliff hadn't pointed out this month's music challenge to me, I might have covered this song eventually anyway.
But since it's this month's challenge, and since bondcliff and I were born on the same day/month/year (same city and same first and middle name, too), I decided, hey, why not do a nutty, rushed job on it instead so that it actually means something. [more inside]

Ring My Bell: Tango

Always despised this song. Seems ironic that it was at the top of the charts the day I was born, but there you are. I thought maybe making it a sort of a bastard tango might improve it. [more inside]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face (Roberta Flack cover)

umbú and I were born pretty close to each other, since this song was also #1 on the week I was born. For some reason, I pictured my version performed by some weird mix of Geinoh Yamashirogumi and Tokyo Jihen. [more inside]

All Shook Up

Elvis Aaron's #1 hit single for May 25, 1957. My version clocks in at eight seconds longer than Mr. Presley's, and uses slightly different instrumentation: the marron glacé guitar, the one string double drum, a shekere/maraca and talking drum. And, um, I made a... *ahem* ... video for it, which, if I had an ounce of dignity, I never would've posted to YouTube or Vimeo.

The first time ever I saw your face

The Roberta Flack version of this song was #1 when I was born, but I decided instead to follow the lead of the Chi-Lites, a Chicago group that rivaled Philadelphia's Delphonics.

Six is where you take the three and make it two times

I was alone. It was late at night. March was approaching its end and I had to sing a song about the multiplication table. I had no lyrics. I recorded some guitars and then pressed record on the vocals to see what would happen. [more inside]
