Truth's A Patient Stalker

A new (very early) rough mix from a chamber pop project I'm doing called "Wishing Well Divers." It's sung from the perspective of Truth personified as a stalker patiently pursuing a corrupt business man. It features cello, piano, acoustic guitar, and an early, rough vocal cut (there are some changes still coming to the vocals, and the guitars will get a boost in the mix ). At any rate, it's a glimpse of where this is going. I welcome any (gentle) feedback. Lyrics below the fold. [more inside]

Clueless

A bitter rock song first written and recorded not long after my last band's original lineup fell apart. That band's ugly break-up (partly triggered by the failure of our band mates' marriage) coincided with both my mom's cancer recurring in terminal form and my wife's losing her job of four years because we stayed in Germany with my mom too long. So we had plenty of pent up bitterness to spare. We performed this song live as Pocket Novel Mystery after re-forming briefly with a new line-up, but when this recording was made, it was just me and my wife, Lori. [more inside]

Secret Book (Vocal Mix)

This is a new version of Secret Book, of which I originally posted an instrumental version here. On the new mix, my wife Lori sings beautifully, and I wail a bit at the end. [more inside]

Her Favorite Records

"In the dark she fakes another little death, and says she thinks that it'd be better if he left. With ashes floating on her breath, she lights another cigarette." Down-tempo alt-country with a cello. From Pocket Novel Mystery's "Eight Days in the Life of Grace."
