Wounds

A stompy, Floyd-y thing with downbeat lyrics that hopefully end on a note of optimism.

A Ballad of 4 am

Third song in a 33 song, 3.5 hour project some friends and I have been working on over the past 14 months or so. A gnostic fable masquerading as a scene from a film noir. The rest are here: https://archive.org/details/33Songs

A Ride to the Airport

This is the first song in a 33 song, 3.5 hour project some friends and I have been working on over the past 14 months or so. It was meant to take 4 months, but you know.. The whole thing is free to stream or download, donations are welcome, we're not really here to make ourselves rich and famous, because what could be more dull? http://henriettatoughlove.com/ https://archive.org/details/33Songs https://henriettatoughlove.bandcamp.com/album/33-songs-for-33-people

cover of Freedom '90 by George Michael

I’ve been working on a musical collaboration with a fellow musician friend of mine during these crazy coronavirus times, in hopes of generating something fun and creative while we have all this spare time not working or gigging. Here's the second song from that collaboration.

Fluid Bonded - John The Rabbit

After co-writing and producing an album for a friend this year I decided, what the hell, Trump is President and we're all gonna die, may as well get over my fear of singing and write a solo album. This is the first compositon that gelled from that effort and made it onto the final album (which album can be heard on Bandcamp here). Recorded entirely in my spare bedroom, using Logic, Ableton, various iOS music apps, and my own human body.

Good So Bad

This is my take on a song by one of the hosts of [dopey podcast](http://dopeypodcast.com), the one they close out every episode with. Came out kinda like a ska tune somehow. Got my daughters doing a little background vox.

"Little Shit"

It's about the prez-elect, had to make a quick mumble-rap-hop / norah-jones-ish / slow jam thing about it to keep my head up

The Challenge Is This

I needed this challenge to get away from the song I've been slowwwwly working on otherwise. I recorded some of it last year, but heavily edited and added onto it last night, and then trimmed it down to a slim fifty-seven seconds. Song 14 in my Unu Kanto Po Semajno series.

My Heart as Your Home

My good friend and music senpai Jeremy Blake wrote and recorded a song called "My Heart as Your Home" that I immediately fell in love with. I recently got a chance to record a cover of it with my younger brother. He played ukelele and sang the lead; I did all the arrangement, production, and backup vocals. I think it turned out really nicely. [more inside]

You Can't See It

My son asked me to record his heartbeat for some school thing a few months ago. I had this heartbeat lying around so I added some Moog to it and Bob's your uncle it became a synthpop song.

Beach Pajama Party!

Song #6 in my less-and-less-aptly-named Unu Kanto Po Semajno series. Kinda poppy and abstract... you know those old Beach & Surf movies of the late 1950's, early 1960's -- the kind starring Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon? Or like, Sally Field in Gidget? This is the kinda music I'd wanna dub over the original score.

Lama (Malcolm Holmes' OMD Remix) by @Ummagma

Just as the seasons can see a categorical change in all the features embodied in this one unifying phenomenon we call 'the weather', so too can a song be totally turned on its head from the original version, doing a near about-face.... that is what happened to this track in this remix by Malcolm Holmes, famous for his participation in legendary synthpop group Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD).

Lama by @Ummagma

Two of my favourite bands in the world are Stereolab and Cocteau Twins and another band whose music I find greatly inspiring is Pink Floyd. This song is a pure project of this triangular love for these three bands. Enjoy!

Men's Retreat

New recording of an old song with the following Garageband synths: "hip hop kit", "pop flute" and "shimmering harpsichord" (IIRC). Song about good friends who have, by now, all moved away. I'd love any thoughts on this. [more inside]

Asteroids

There's a saying that aging is like sailing into an asteroid field, where the asteroids get thicker and thicker until one hits you. This is a song about that. One take everything. Video.

River Town

Where does one genre begin and another one stop? I'm asking myself the very same question every time I hear that this song is indie or pop rock or folk rock or dream pop. Well, whatever one calls it, I hope you enjoy this. [more inside]

BFD

A mix of cultures often results in something beautiful - interesting art, world views, beautiful babies and intriguing music. And you don't have to be from either of those cultures to appreciate how wonderful this can be. This song represents a melange of two cultural infusions - from Canada and Ukraine. This is Ummagma. Enjoy. [more inside]

Safe and Sound [Capital Cities cover]

Jessamyn asked me to cover this song a long time ago, and I set about it at a snails pace. It's finally done! (Sorry it took so long, darlin.) It started out in my mind as, "What if New Order or the Cure covered it?", and it turned out sounding like me covering it. I worked more over the past month to make sure it sounded the way I wanted it to, and I learned a lot about Garageband along the way. I'm kinda proud of it. And I'm glad it's over. [more inside]
