I Just Want to Feed the Ducks

Well, last week I had stepped out for a cigarette and witnessed a snippet of a conversation between a man and his daughter. They were both riding their bicycles down the sidewalk through the plazain which I work, and my guess would place the daughter at about 9 or 10 years old. As they rode past me, I heard the man say to the girl, "I just want to feed the ducks, and you keep pulling me away." And that's pretty much the basis for this song. It gets kinda awesome about halfway through. I mean, I think so, anyway.

Little Orange Dinosaur

As long as songs about colored dinosaurs are on the front page, I thought I'd add mine. This song is about 8 years old (hence the junky analog recording). It's about a little orange dinosaur I loved when I was a kid.

Every Hour of Night

I worked on this with a friend a couple years ago. It's a bit shakey... but it's done. Slight delay at the beginning.

Vincent's Secret Hobby

Folkish rock that may just rip your face off. This is another song from my friend that I helped produce. Good stuff, I swear! *not responsible for said defacing...

Purple Dinosaur

Daniel LeClair, a friend of mine, told me how much he adored his 3-year-old kid. How he understood everything the boy spoke, mumbled, shouted or coughed. The only thing he never understood, was how the boy could be in love with that purple dinosaur. I thought there was a song in there. Recorded with another friend, Uili Damage, who did the production and sang in it. So, I wrote the song, but Uili made it sound as it does here.

The Masons Own 'U'

"The Masons bought 'U' the other day. Now there's a lotta words that we can't say." Let Steve and Chris from the Nude Dancer Explosion tell you about them. Plus a totally rockin' acoustic guitar solo. (Slightly NSFW... in a bad word kinda way)

You Are The One

I know you never meant to bring it quite to this place And everybody watching can see it's a hell of a show I know you're only feeling like a mouse in a rat race But there's just one thing I think you ought to know If it's down to me or you, you got to go

bench song

A happy song about new love and late summer nights. I'm not sure that the arrangement for this is done, really, but I've been leaving it alone for a while now. Features keyboards, bass, drums, slide guitar and vocals.

Snakey

This is a song I did in 1995 with my band Verge on the album Little Idiot. This recording is entirely the product of the studio, but we would play it live too. (We'd drag out a lot of gear that would barely function at times to do just that...) We made this recording in the basement of my loft (at the time, sigh) in Williamsburg sometime between 1993 and 1995, sequencing it on a Mac IIci computer with no sampling or digital audio though we did record onto a digital 8-track tape recorder (remember "tape"?) so the guitar solos and voice and synth and things are pretty well as they occurred.

all this blue

Trip hop or something. At its core it is still a singer/songwriter sort of deal, but this features -- in addition to regular vocals -- opera samples, moaning girls, reversed strings, synth bass, subtle sustained guitar feedback, scratching, acoustic slide guitar, tambourine, crumbly noises, and whatever else. Includes the F-word right at the start, if that concerns anyone.

Samsara II

Samsara: The eternal cycle of birth, suffering, death, and rebirth. A song from my very first band in 1999. I played keys, synths and added some backup vocals at the end. It was also my first experiment with home recording. Considering we only used a couple of SM57's, a mixer from the 80's and a PC... I think it turned out pretty good!

Falling From the Sky

Easy going, pop rockin' goodness. Like many folks posting here, this is one of my old band's songs. This one in particular was written by my good friend (and then bandmate) Chris Knott - who recently moved to NYC with his band, Commas.

Fictional Encore

Audio collage of some of the pieces of a live recording that landed on the cutting room floor. From my old band's final show.

Signals

I'm not ready to unload any of my instrumental piano music on here yet, so here's another band song—the only song I've ever written for a band. The original version only exists on poorly recorded minidisc recordings of live shows, and I can't stand listening to that version any more because after I brought it to the band it quickly dawned on me that I had just written The Beatles' "Glass Onion" all over again. Oops. So this here's a 70s groove version of the song I just started working on today. My plan is to get a new band together and rerecord it like this.

Ana Ng (acoustic)

This is an acoustic cover of the wonderful TMBG song Ana Ng, done on a four track recorder many years ago. Though I did once see "I don't want the world, I just want your half" painted on a bridge (it was really surprising and cool to discover), we substituted "Homies '88" in its place because we had recently seen that on a bridge and thought it a bit absurd that someone took the time and effort to paint such a doofy message.

It Wasn't Me

The result of the production from hell. Another track I did for an assignment in college. The week this was due in I had four other assignments due, and was suffering a creative block, so by the time I'd finally finished mastering the track I'd gone over 30 hours without sleep for the second time that week. Thankfully after I handed it up that morning I was able to sleep right through to the afternoon the following day....good times!

maroon for red

A song from a couple of years back which is still a favorite of mine. This one has heavier drums and more electric guitars than most of my tracks, but it's still a love song.

sleep fiction

A pretty catchy melody, I think -- starts slow like most of my songs, but then picks up and becomes more of a rock track. Sample lyric: "Sleeping with you is still fiction, so missing it must be a contradiction." Features vocals, guitars, piano, drums, strings.

Shooting

A song about all of the violence and hate in this world. Recorded in March 1987 at the 8 1/2 club in a town called Pinetamare, Italy, otherwise known as Villagio Coppola, Italy. The name of our band was: Tous. I played bass.

Seven Years of Bad Luck

Another Dessert Parade track from the same recording where the track that'll be on the forthcoming MeFi compilation CD came from. The songwriter's new band, Turbine, has taken this song and reworked into a song that has a completely different feel to it, but I still prefer this version. (Posted in honor of MeFi's 7th birthday.)
