Life Through Veils

Old recording from 1990. Music Recorded live, with the middle section and ending being written extemporaneously in the studio, vocals are the only overdubs. Originally 24 track, but this was rescued from cassette, hence the crap quality. I wrote the music and the singer wrote the words and melody. I sang backup. [more inside]

Untold Demons

I unearthed the very first song I wrote in 1986 and flinched at all the clueless chord progressions my 14-year-old self used. But I could sense some potential behind a few of the ideas. So I reworked it extensively and brought out more of the subliminal inspiration that went into: mid-'80s Heart. [more inside]

One of the Perks of Being a Well-Known, Albeit Ineffective Superhero

This is the fourth (and maybe final) People Will Blink song posted on this page. This one is definitely a prog-rock tune. It's about a day in the life of a superhero who doesn't really.... do anything. But there's an epic battle at the end. [more inside]

It's Nedroid!!!

Nedroid's unofficial theme-song (with official, Nedroid-penned lyrics!) About five years ago (in the early stage of my mefi lurking) my good buddy, TheMadJuggler asked me to throw together a little tune for his net-buddy, Nedroid. Here's a pretty faithful version of the song I came up with. I post this as the last song recorded in my shitty little Haverhill apartment, as a fan/love letter to a fine cartoonist. [more inside]

Beauty of Love

This song is from the band I have been with for the longest, LOX-P, and was recorded at the same studio and under the same conditions as the last song I posted, War Waltz. On this recording I am the bass player, however I wrote the guitar line as well. Hope y'all like it. [more inside]

War Waltz

"The tribes of war are rising again, they're brutal and raw and lying the same" That's my favorite line of this song. Warning: turn your volume down it's quite loud ;) The song was recorded in one day and mixed on the next along with 2 others for the band's first demo Cold Day Waltz. [more inside]

Venom

Till I Can't Run No More

Another song from yet another band I'm in, The Eric Weiler Band. Generally the quick-and-dirty go-to description many people find for us is along the lines of "Tom Waits singing for the E Street Band." Make your own call. I play the Hammond.

(8-Bar Wake) Before an Irish Funeral

First song off of the new People Will Blink record. This song was written about 3 years ago and went through many transformations before it began to sound... well... listenable. When we played this song live, Azeem used a vocoder during the bridge. He forgot it in California when we recorded, so we used a clarinet, melodica, and recorder in it's place. [more inside]

Ghosts and Robots

Or "Hooray for the Humans" a meditation in Post-Apocalyptic Folk-Rock! Every now and then, someone favorites (or unfavorites) this little line, which I dropped as a comment on a great post about the world after humans. It's actually the opening line to a song I've been mean to post forever. Here's the cleanest version I've got so far. [more inside]

Chester

This is the intro to a song my band has played live a few times. Live, I do it with loops, although it's not quite this developed. This is another Pro Tools experiment, thanks to the wonderful Swem Library Media Center.

Nothing to Say

Brooklyn Cars

Recorded with lots of bleed to 2" analog tape in a very cold studio in an old barn upstate New York (and vocals, keys and other overdubs done in a warmer environment back in NYC), this is a song about fan culture in the internet age. Sorta. And fun. [more inside]

gone

I think this is one of the catchier songs I've come up with in a while, though I never seem to be a good judge of that. At any rate, it's a short and simple track about intense love gone missing... or something like that. [more inside]

Surfer Girl

No, not that Surfer Girl. I wrote this years ago back when the internet was still pretty new and AOL chat rooms were becoming popular. Recorded on my first Mac with no bass and a drum machine that I had absolutely no idea how to work.

in memories

A collaboration with non-mefite Riadsala, who sometimes records bass for me. This is a pretty strange track, with a lot of effects going on, with a weirdish tempo change into the chorus which is backed by something in the vein of guitar shredding. [more inside]
