Blame

It's a new power pop composition. It's been a while since I posted a new song, and since this one makes me happy right now, I thought you might like it too. [more inside]

Power (Time to Turn)

Obviously, I couldn't decide on a title, so I used parentheses. Pretty straight-up rock, with synth adding some color to the guitar melodies, and a somewhat anthemic turn toward the end. [more inside]

Dark and Scary

My friend Bill got hit by a car while riding his bike in San Raphael, California last month. He's been in a coma, and broke his vertebrae, collarbone, ribs, and has been on a respirator, critical. He has a history of alcoholism, and meth. He came to the midwest because his mother was dying, and after she did, there were ghosts in her house. We wrote and recorded this three years ago when he was in the midwest in 2007. I was planning on finishing it for Halloween this year. But now it makes more sense to me. Wow. Sometimes music transcends time and space. [more inside]

Blackbox Blues (big ghost version)

My band's rendition of this tune, which I posted a while back. It was fun condensing the 9 track arrangement down for a three-piece. Worth the long intro. [more inside]

I Heard Your Voice

A new track that my friend Lesley and I worked on over the last few weeks. Inspired in part from reading a Joe Strummer bio.

Pulling Teeth

Another song in the 'I'm trying my hand at writing and recording rock music single-handedly in my bedroom' project. Looking for criticism, suggestions, tips, etc. - on mixing especially. [more inside]

Uncle Wigalee

A song about Sex. This is the last of three songs from my short-lived band Hurlo Thrumbo. Recorded in 1990. I wrote the music and played bass, and the singer wrote the melody and words. Rescued from cassette. [more inside]

On A Combine

Wrote this on my friends farm in Iowa. A good "double" meaning song concerning genetic engineering, both intentional and accidental, animal and vegetable. [more inside]

Child of the Light – Unfinished Mix

A bit of 80s style guitar-rock goodness. I wanted to wait with sharing this until the mix had actually been completed, but the sound guy is taking his sweet time, so here it is. [more inside]

Black Dog – Unfinished

This is a little something I cooked together earlier this summer for the fun of it. I never finished it, but thought it might be fun to share anyway. [more inside]

I'll Never Know

Spacy, psychedelic, crazy spoken-wordy rock song inspired by Afroblanco's poem of the same name. Brought to you by Ambien (TM) and Lagavulin 16. [more inside]

What I Deserve (Ex-Machina Mix)

I recently bought a new computer, which allows me to use Guitar Rig 3 LE that came bundled with Cakewalk SONAR without taxing my CPU. So I re-recorded one of my songs with actual guitars. [more inside]

Away

This song was recorded with my old band, Niche, 7 years ago. That's me as an angsty teenager, putting on my best impression of mid-90's alternative. [more inside]

Channel 19

I grew up when there were only three or four TV channels, no internet. Now people want to be micro-celebrities, and want their privacy to boot. [more inside]

Sharkus - Tomb

My first attempt bringing live instrumentation to my Garageband exodus. I have messed with making it louder, but it makes it sound way too flat, so my apologies to you and your music knobs. Either way, this is a song about a tomb. Not necessarily death, as the metaphors mix if you look too much for the meaning. Rock music does these sorts of things. [more inside]

Summer's Calling (remix)

I wasn't at all happy with the first version of this challenge track that I posted. So I redid it, and now it makes me feel all sunshiney inside. [more inside]

Bring the Chase

Guitar and synth rock, with a certain whiff of the 70s about it, and a comparatively laid back chorus that I'm pretty happy with. Lyrics inside. [more inside]

Back on my Back Again

Another slice of 1995 Big Star/Television influenced indie ephemera from my 4-track cassette box. I still really love this guitar riff and the herky jerky power pop stuff at the end of the chorus. A song about not wanting someone to feel bad for dumping you. When I first heard Sloan, I thought 'man, they stole my sound' although really we both stole Velvet Crush's. [more inside]
