Complicated

This song showed up in the middle of a very stoned 45 minute jam session with my band The Next, for which I play the drums. None of us remember making this song. It's kinda fun and catchy.

Power of Love

Thanks to two class cancellations due to ice storms in the Capital, I was able to arrange and record this Valentine's day treat. Imagine Huey Lewis, baritone, with a banjo.

Inarmed Decision

This is another song my old band. It's mixes ballad with a slight hardcore influence

Postcard From A Volcano

A bouncy pop song from my old band New Blind Nationals. This song always reminded me of The Promise Ring

Regicide Solution

Here's an unfortunately prescient political power-pop tune I penned in '02, as recorded by Detroit's own rock foursome LISBOA at our (then) modest home studio in our first collective foray into DIY recording. RIFYL: The New Pornographers and dudes/lady-dudes in that vein. Honky tonk piano (emphasis on the "honky"), a Hammond, some e-Bow, a little vibraphone, and a few too many "nah-nah-nah-nahs," but whaddya gonna do, right? Hope you dig it, friends.

Intensation/Mental Chant/Bullsh*t

3 song medley I remastered from my old band 10-96's seminal release "No Retreat...." I ripped it off of vinyl and transferred it into Pro Logic and then into mp3..... Opinions welcome! (About the sound quality, that is.... I am looking to burn copies of the whole album to send to some labels for re-rerelease)......

wedding song

Piano-based song written for my wife, for our recent wedding. As usual with my songs, it's slow and sparse. A lot of vocal layering going on, and some electric guitar to round things out in the chorus. Enjoy!

Perfect Martyr

One of my bands, The Man So Cool, did some recording a couple weeks ago for a demo disc. We're still working on final vocals and proper mixes, but this is a pretty good rough mix of one of the songs. Links to the other three songs can be gotten over yonder.

Pain

This is one of the first raw demos of the composition which I was able to play with one of my Ibanez guitars...to be precise with ibanez rg. I'm planning to add a better version soon.

The Slow Cowardly Death

Somewhere I read about how you can effectively kill populations of people by just doing your job in a big corporation, and not questioning the decisions above and below you. It was termed the "slow cowardly death" of the people affected. After reading MeFi for what feels like years, I finally became a member, so I thought I'd share something. I recorded this last year to test out my home studio, and have something to play at funerals.

Confession

True story. Kid owes drug dealers money, so he tells them his aunt is on her way home from cashing her tax refund check. She is gunned down on her porch in front of spouse and kids.

Take It From Me

The Archers of Loaf meet the Bay City Rollers in this humble contribution to the grand tradition of cheeky break-up tunes. Terrible puns abound, but you've been warned. From LISBOA's 2003 EP Either Origami, available here for five lousy clams. Crank it up, friends.

Briscoe

Another Division of Planes song from Trembling Wires, but with a different vibe than Ghost. I think this is the most mellow track on the ep, actually. Recorded by Scott Norton at Headgear Recording Studios and mastered by TJ Lipple at Silver Sonya.

Ghost

A quick lil' song from my band DIVISION OF PLANES. Recorded by Scott Norton winter of 2006 at Headgear Recording Studios in Brooklyn, NY for our upcoming ep Trembling Wires. Mastered by TJ Lipple at Silver Sonya. Both TJ and Scott did an excellent job. We got the masters back from TJ last week. I'll post a few more when I can.

Flat Fix

This is a tune from a 1995 release called "Samm Bennett's History of the Last Five Minutes", from the Knitting Factory label. The CD is currently out of print. The guitarist is Hahn Rowe, everything else is me. I've been thinking about re-releasing this and possibly my earlier KF CDs on my own label (Yay! Rights have reverted back to yours truly!) but I've got a bunch of new songs I wanna release first. Thought I'd just throw this one out there into the ether. Anyway, [lyrics inside] and, hope you enjoy...

Sister's Gone by Channel 18

Recorded in an airplane hangar in Louisville back in August, we used the built-in mic on my friend's iBook, and Garage Band to do the multitracking. Sounds pretty kickass for how low-tech it was, if you ask me. Just two guys, I played drums, my friend played guitars and bass.

To Wit

A song off the upcoming EP from Victor Furious & The Murder of Men, a Nashville-area local group. Looking for some feedback, as a move to NYC is forthcoming. Music is (self) classified as laughing-gas rock. Let them know what you think - eponymous website and MySpace.

My Dictator (Can Beat Up Your Dictator)

Putting the "b" in "subtle," Detroit's LISBOA pens a political power-pop tune that pulls no punches. Alliteration is always awesome. Sounds like: Kansas City's best (i.e., only) Cheap Trick cover band meets Propaghandi at an after-hours bingo parlor. In drag. Dig the horns, dudes and lady-dudes.

Hats, Caps and Notions

Another slice of power-pop rock from LISBOA's self-produced 2005 LP Live from the Grand Hotel Abyss [iTunes link], with a title indirectly inspired by a mefi thread of all things! By the way, you should totally pick up a copy of the mefi compilation CD: it features another track from LISBOA as well as a bunch of great tunes from some genuinely talented mefites, too. Plus, proceeds go to, you know, the kids.

Everyone's Depending on Us

Misunderstanding At A Busstop Downtown

When I first got my digital 8-track recorder, I wanted to make a test song to learn it's functionality. This song showcases some wild off-key singing as well as my inability to track an instrument without a single mistake. It's about a little mishap I had shortly after I started dating my current girlfriend.

Governmentium

Another track from the new 23rd Century Album, and because you demanded it, one more song after this one. You can DL the whole album for free from our website.

Another Another Number (Rollercoaster Project remix)

I got some positive comments last time, so it seems like The Rollercoaster Project is your cup of tea. Here's his remix of Another Number by The Cribs. This is an official remix, which was released on their Hey Scenesters single. Said the Gramophone had nice things to say about the remix, as did some wag reviewing it on Amazon (scroll down to "Temi Amazon"). Again, do let us know what you think. <crass commercialism>You can find out more about The Rollercoaster Project, and download (or buy physical copies) of more of his stuff on my label's website</crass commercialism>.

Evil (Rollercoaster Project remix)

This is an extremely remixed version of Evil by Interpol. It was produced by my friend and label-mate The Rollercoaster Project, whose music is guitar-driven experimental electronica. If you like this, you can download a couple of tracks from his debut album (sadly now sold out) or download the title track from his upcoming single (and purchase it). I'd love to hear what you think. He has a few more (unrecognizable!) remixes, which I'd be happy to post.

Classical music meets instrumental tango salsa rock. Live recording from the Ohio Action benefit show, October, Kenyon College. I took the solo on this track, replacing vocals with a violin "guest vocalist."

Bigger, Cheaper Buzz

I've been messing around playing the guitar for about a year, but I recently got a drum machine and decided to start trying to write some songs. This is my second. The song has lyrics, but I haven't recorded the vocals yet. Recording was done in Garage Band.

Hmmm

One in Japanese, fellows. I know there are a few of you who speak Japanese out there, so if the lyrics of this song don't really make sense, don't get offended, take it on a "best effort" basis. The lyrics were translated by the girl who sings in it, who is half Mexican, half Japanese. Also, if anyone can provide confirmation that it actually says something, it would be great, all this time we've only been able to hope the words actually say something and they were not taken from a refrigerator manual.

God of Filth

I am the drummer in this kinda punkish/metalish rock band called The Next. And this is one of our songs. It is very, very different from the sort of thing I tend to do whilst solo. And this is the best recording of it we've made, thusfar.

CHRIS GARVER - Wasp in the House

A selection from the recently released album "e4/e5" ...songs about elected servants and employed servants. Songs about shock and awe, the beatniks, & holy Moses. Songs about Paul Bunyan, Tammy Faye, & Zelda Fitzgerald. Posthumous songs, sacreligious songs, contradictory slanderings... Jewelry store robberies, the language virus, & the reawakening of the languished American dream?

Number One

Hey all, this being my first post, I'll go ahead and explain the situation, for the sake of future songs. I write the music in FL and my friend Dave from back home in TX does the vocals in this yet unnamed project. We're still trying to acquire a sound, so we're knocking simple stuff out of our system first. This song is our (poorly mixed) cliche love song, only about a MySpace stalker. The amount of cheese should make you smile.
