You're So Dangerous!
An upbeat ditty about falling in love, blah blah blah. Cobbled together during my currently-on-hiatus 52 weeks project. Inspired by Holiday-era Magnetic Fields. [more inside]
So this is another song, audio is taken directly from the youtube video here. This is a live performance, did a session in the lighting hire and install company I work for over the weekend. This video forms part of a competition entry for our band. [more inside]
Something fairly new. This is two of us playing live, me on bass and singing, and synth and drum machine from Magnus. [more inside]
You Can't See It
My son asked me to record his heartbeat for some school thing a few months ago. I had this heartbeat lying around so I added some Moog to it and Bob's your uncle it became a synthpop song.
Lama (Malcolm Holmes' OMD Remix) by @Ummagma
Just as the seasons can see a categorical change in all the features embodied in this one unifying phenomenon we call 'the weather', so too can a song be totally turned on its head from the original version, doing a near about-face.... that is what happened to this track in this remix by Malcolm Holmes, famous for his participation in legendary synthpop group Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD).

New recording of an old song with the following Garageband synths: "hip hop kit", "pop flute" and "shimmering harpsichord" (IIRC). Song about good friends who have, by now, all moved away. I'd love any thoughts on this. [more inside]

Falling (Theme from Twin Peaks)
In honor of tomorrow's blu-ray release, I recorded a new take on the classic Lynch/Badalamenti theme, "Falling," from Twin Peaks. [more inside]
Pretty self explanatory. Drug teens doing teen drugs. [more inside]
Everyone I Know
Resistor celebrates springtime with a lush new single, "Everyone I Know." This hook-laden dance-pop number is seasoned with Resistor's cynical charm, pondering whether originality can exist if a person is merely a product of his environment. Of course, the existentialism lurks beneath many layers of burbling synths, glitchy drum machines, and boy-girl harmonies. [more inside]
If You Don't Cry
"If You Don't Cry" by Resistor (originally performed by The Magnetic Fields).
Resistor - Keep it to Yourself
Another bit of synthpop metacommentary in the form of the funny-cause-it's-sad-cause-it's-true inner monologue of a cynical artist. [more inside]
My take on the McCartney Christmas tune. [more inside]
The 11th entry in the monthly series of homemade synthpop singles from Resistor, "Narcissist" does what it says on the tin. [more inside]

A simple electro-ukulele ode to solitude and song. [more inside]
"I'll Refuse" is a synthpop doowop revenge song. There's a video here. [more inside]
Resistor - Insecure
This one is a sparkly nugget of synthpop about the bitter, self-sabotaging adolescent lurking within all of us. Or at least within me. It's classic Resistor. [more inside]
Resistor - Vincent van Gogh
A homemade synthpop tune about the myth of the meritocracy and the pain of being an artist without an audience, like something Stephin Merritt could've come up with on a dreary evening in an alternate universe where The Magnetic Fields never got popular. [more inside]
Resistor - David the Gnome
This is an electro version of the theme song to the children's show "The World of David the Gnome," which aired in the US on Nickelodeon from 1987 to 1995. [more inside]
My attempt at a modern new wave instrumental, and a new way of recording with Ableton. [more inside]

The Other Shoe
Peppy and poppy, though I don't really have a pop voice. Who needs more than two chords, anyway? [more inside]
Mare in the Moon
A fantasy for synthesizers and percussion. [more inside]
Stranger In Your Room
This is one of my favourite songs off my most recent EP, The End Of The Beginning. [more inside]
Let Me Know
A short, sweet synthpop/r&b jam. I've been listening to Confessions alot lately, and this is sort of my take on the modern r&b genre.
Homesick synths, bittersweet beats. [more inside]
The Garden of Forking Paths
Just another folk-rock song about Jorge Luis Borges. [more inside]
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo, la la la, la la la la. The new hit single from Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies. A chamber-pop meditation on time, aging, and death. [more inside]
A new direction for me... Italo-disco-cyberpunk-house-pop?
1988 (Phoenix Mars Remix)
I decided that God Particle's 1988 needed lyrics, so I added some text-to-speech from Phoenix's Last Transmission From Mars. Everything is better with sad robots! [more inside]
I Never Want To Go Home
Another semi-anthemic dance song about dancing with a girl! [more inside]
(This Is) The Dream Of Matt And Harriett
A song about my favorite failed Aaron Sorkin show. My good friend Jessica sings Harriett's part.
Three In The Morning
I've been on a roll the last couple days - here's a cute little synthy doo-wop song I just finished! [more inside]
a blast from the past
Water as escapism.
Thanks for the Add (demo)
A dancey pop kinda thing. I finished all the recording and rough mixes for my next album so I'm starting to enjoy making music again. Also: trying to be less of a perfectionist so I maybe don't go bonkers.
A simple, melancholy electro instrumental that I recorded a couple of years ago. Percussion ideas came from various hip-hop sources; the melody is my own. I use it as background music during a spoken-word segment of my live shows. [more inside]
Take Me There
If I was to describe this song with sarcastic overtones, I would say this is a regular run-of-the-mill ageispolis techno song. Well, it's not. This song is anything but typical of what I usually produce. Vocals, emotion, melody, structure... christ, what's gotten into me!?
