This has been the worst winter in 20 years where I am. It's still snowing horizontally as I speak. So I wrote a summer song as a big middle finger to the damn cold. [more inside]

Another quick composition, in the vein of blues or something. [more inside]
Summertime gives me a lot of time to write music. Especially outside. This track samples "Do While" by Oval. I wanted to turn an ambient track into something a bit more danceable. Any thoughts?
Summer's nearly over, but never fear -- it's always the sunniest season on your HiFi! Ford and the Prefects and the Don Ho Symphony Orchestra present "Hawaii," this year's breakout good-times swingle. [more inside]

Another Saladabar song. This one is an instrumental and is new. The recording is a live recording from a recent rehearsal made with an Edirol R-09.
"Daddy, can I have a sammich? Can I have candy/ice cream?" "Can we go see the Simpsons Movie?" No, no, no. Go outside and PLAY! (MI)
Mainly an experiment with a new microphone. The vocal needs to be re-done, and made louder. Otherwise, it's okay. Oddly enough, it's about this girl... I hope it's not gauche to post lyrics :-) Longing for summer In the Snow that fell around us All around the town Following children Running In and out of my life Getting drunk and dancing All we had we lost Turned into Ice Waiting for aeroplanes How could You expect much more from me? Did we stand a chance? I tried to keep you Dipping Into London guidebooks Thermals and two bedspreads Even though we knew you'd Never Delay ?
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.

Now that the summer's ending, there's a cold wind blowing in / So we've got to build some shelter, before it rains again
Scaled the cliffs of an abandoned embassy, sitting on a broken concrete jetty, looking out to the Mediteranean. Kids playing around me in the water.
