Dishonest Used Car Salesman
Another dumb song from the dumb-songs album demos. This one's ... let's call it early-2000s emo?
How Far I'll Go
I had the drums and amp mic'ed up anyway, so I decided to lay down this track from Moana.
I made a really janky demo of a dumb pop punk song I wrote years ago and then a friend of mine laid down drums for it [more inside]
Deck the Halls
This is about the least effort you could put into wishing a merry f'n Christmas. Now with sleighbells. Of course.
Jack the Ripper
A quickie. Took an ominous Nick Cave/Bad Seeds dirge, applied a little jolt of electrical shockers.
Millimeters of Mercury — Ice Age
An as-of-yet instrumental, franctically-paced (187), electronic post-hardcore-influenced song. Without doubt the most balls-to-the-wall, overblown, overpowered, overdriven, bombastic production I've created. But it's still in that poppishly glossy, tightly-produced package anyone who has heard me knows. Any suggestions welcome as to how vocals should flow in it, and collaboration also welcome.
The third song from my forthcoming solo album "This Is Hollywood," detailing a rather common theme in pop music: male prostitution along Santa Monica Blvd. in the early 90s.
See, I think about weird stuff. Like, what would happen if you combined Creed and (a really sloppy, tuneless version of) The Buzzcocks? Heh, well, you'd get the Creedcocks, wouldn't you? And you know, I think they might sound a little something like this... [more inside]

Fell in Love With a Girl [White Stripes]
Me and my almost-13-year-old son Mikey at it again (we recently did a cover of "Son of a Gun"). Our two-man band, Megakelvin, put together another pop-punk number, the White Stripes' "Fell in Love With a Girl," a song Mikey fell in love with through the video (which, as you remember, was done in Lego). Since then, he's consistently had this one among his favorites. Here's our take. I think he brings the RAWK.
Here's a song by my band Blood on the Stereo. We are from LA. We're playing a free show this Monday April 9th at the Gig in Hollywood on Melrose. Let us know if you likes. Thanks! _teddy
