"Little Shit"

It's about the prez-elect, had to make a quick mumble-rap-hop / norah-jones-ish / slow jam thing about it to keep my head up

Hot Mess

A jazzy/funky/noisy/weird tune written for the 60 second challenge. Just sort of stops instead of ending. [more inside]

Don't Call It a Disease

As humans explore beyond the solar system and add themselves to the wider galactic population, they bring with them their cats. Likewise, the humans' cats bring with them their parasites. Over time, toxoplasma gondii alters its effects on humans and other sentient species, imparting a sense of spiritual enlightenment, thus leading to a new galactic religion. [more inside]

Proto Man: An Empty Home

It is tradition among my people to collect 8-bit chiptune soundtracks that contain brilliant music, and learn and arrange them so that others may find joy in their melodic beauty! [more inside]

Shame the Devil (Turn it Up)

Quick if somewhat epic demo knocked together over the weekend... featuring glockenspiel, mellotron, piano, and baritone twang. Video shenanigans featuring multiple clones over here.

Almost Over

Another track off the new album, with bonus video and links to the evolution of the song from a first sketch as posted here on MeFiMu. [more inside]

Someone to Love (live)

Live version of a song I posted a demo of a while back, featuring my friend John on the mighty Hammond A100 (a B3 essentially). An interesting moment, in that it's the culmination of a long journey that I lived out here on MeFiMu, originally as unSane, then Sweet Mister, and now Sportswriters. [more inside]

Where My Mind Goes

The artist formerly known as unSane here, now posting as Sportswriters because that's my band and to a large extent it grew out of my experiences here. I grew disillusioned with MeFi overall but Music will alway have a piece of my heart. We're now recording an album which I'll start posting soon but in the meantime, I sat on the porch and wrote a murder ballad. Here's a very rough demo. Very much influenced by Chuck Jackson, Aaron Neville and Little Anthony and the Imperials, dripping in vibrato guitar and soul chops. I think the final version will have some spooky strings and backing vocals, and not be as out of time as this!

The Calm Kiev

We once used to wonder what it would sound like to whip up a healthy feisty mix of dream pop and hip hop - rap and now, thanks to this tasty earbite, we have an idea. Definitely taking a walk on the dark side, underlined by both the music and vocals, this is still definitely worth the listen.

Somebody to Love (You)

Full on frenzied singalong Northern Soul with some spectacularly funktastic drumming from my pal Darrell. Put on your dancing shoes and join in the 'You-oooo's if you want.

Almost Over

Pretty much finished version of this sketch I posted previously. Our drummer is going to put live drums in but we're still trying to figure it out... other than that it's mostly done. Sort of sits in a strange space between studio one, funky soul and white boy reggae circa 1977.

Almost Over (sore throat mix)

Holy crap, this is rough. On the knife edge between soul and reggae, neither of which I'm qualified to sing, but part of my ongoing project to write songs people actually want to listen to. [more inside]

How'm I Going to Get Over?

Another torch song, I guess. Used the new 'drummer' track from Logic Pro X for the drum track... quite impressed the way it adapts the kick/snare pattern to the emphasis in the bassline. LPX is quite nice, but still buggy on my machine. Another hard song to sing, for me anyway.

The Waiting Game

I've always wanted to write a blue-eyed Northern Soul stomper. And it appears now I have, kinda. Grab some Lucozade and a towel and we'll have a MeFi meetup down at the Wigan Casino. [more inside]

Your Ball and Chain (slight return)

I remixed this song I posted a few days ago taking into account some of the feedback and I like it a whole lot better now! [more inside]

A Town with no Pity

Epic 60s janglepop meets Northern Soul, final version of the tune I've been evolving here and on The Music Incubator. All based on a little piano riff, and therefore my August challenge entry too. [more inside]

The break-neck lo-fi fest continues with this cover of a song I just loved to death back in high school. [more inside]

I Want You Back

Everybody driving by my window the last three weeks has been blasting Michael Jackson, I couldn't help myself. Maybe got a bit carried away. Many apologies to James Jamerson. [more inside]

Back To Being Me

Maybe I wrote this song for Aretha Franklin. Maybe I wrote it for Candi Staton. Either way, when I sing it I feel like a large black woman.

Feed Off

Another song by my ex-band, again with me on trumpet. Mellow soul/funk.

Like a Sunrise featuring Diane Jessurun

I went looking for some Creative Commons acapellas to muck around with, and this is the result - something a bit trip-hop and soulful, based on this vocal performance from Diane Jessurun. I'm not too unhappy with the result. CC2006.

Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child

I've always loved this spiritual, and I loved recording it as well. It was a balmy evening in New York, and as I was singing, I felt as much in the center of the world as far far away....

Hazy Heat

Another song (featuring spinning from DJ Sku) from The Wild Farewell by The Harvey Girls, as posted earlier in Projects. It is too damn hot to be outside.

Shamone

Funky soul-inspired song from a 10-piece North London band sadly no longer in existence. Trumpet = Lotto!
