Another song from my newish free EP of quirky electronic cheese, "Part Time Drum Machine." I sort of picture a mechanical sunrise operated by heavy robots intent on bringing light joy. You know. [more inside]
Quiet, loud, low, and high bleeps. Plus drums. (Unfortunately, it sounds weird on built-in computer speakers. The toms and bass get chopped out almost completely. Maybe skip if you don't have headphones. Sorry, guys.)
ColdChef's daughter Georgia wrote a great poem about the sun. I am learning the ukulele but am not particularly creative. I took her poem and set it to my version of music. It's the first song I ever recorded. Thanks ColdChef and Georgia! More details. [more inside]
A filk dedicated to Andy Coulson and all at the News of The World, may it rot in peace. [more inside]
Thine age asks ease, and since thy duties be To warm the world, that's done in warming us. Shine here to us, and thou art everywhere; This bed thy centre is, these walls, thy sphere.
This was a happiely done shes gone song. When I first wrote it I thought to myself " If she hears this then shell know and we will be ok again" Needless to say she is still gone and all I got was this dam T-shirt. This was my first and only studio demo session in where I did my first three recorded songs. Sorry for the song restart at the end just me being lazy on a edit. Listen Ps: as the story goes she has heard this one I know for sure
A song I've done.
I think this'll be my last music post for a while, until I get my shit together, as it were. Thought I'd round it off at a nice even 10. And, I thought it fitting to post this super-old song, ('98 or '99), which was my first attempt at "multitrack hard disk recording," with one Sure SM58 mic, some crappy Mac software on an old biege G3, handclaps and a LittleTikes™ toy piano. I used what I had. Way back when, I posted it on sites like the old mp3.com and it got some nice feedback which felt awesome and immediate and kind of weird and new. After a while I got sort of jaded with all the online music site stuff because it was clearly becoming the "So You Think You Can Dance" of the Internet, at the time. Posting stuff recently to music.metafilter has rekindled a lot of that fun, immediate kind of vibe for me, so I thought this was a good way to complete the circle. At the time I called this "a happy song about sad people," which I guess it is. It was written after leaving a shitty job. It sounds kind of corny and twee now, and the recording quality is pretty shite, but it was sincere at the time. Cheers everyone. In preview this seems like way too much information. Oh well.
