Random Pictures of Strangers

As happens from time to time, a comment someone made here at Metafilter was the spark of inspiration for a song. This was the comment, and here's the song.

Butterfly Trapped In a Phone Booth (minimal mix)

The second in my new series, Songs of the Mundane. It's written specifically for a video, which is, of course, viewable at YouTube. The version I'm posting here features vocal and dulcimer only: thought I'd start posting alternate mixes here to MeFiMu since I almost always link to a video version, and why not make 'em different, right? The version you can hear with the video has several percussion tracks, and, of course, a butterfly...

Japonisme (1)

I took an old 45rpm of a Japanese folk song and started dropping the needle. Took those bits, sliced 'em up and moved 'em around a little, then added some synth and electric piano, some udu and guiro. Et voila! Le Japonisme!

Don't Play Cards With Satan (D.Johnston)

Took a look at this month's challenge themes and thought: Tom Waits does a much better Tom Waits impersonation than I could ever muster, and I'm just not a 'lots of notes' kinda guy. But, "spooky"... there you go! Submitted for your listening pleasure, my version of this Daniel Johnston song. With lines like "I saw my own heart laying, black with blood", I guess you could say it's pretty damn spooky. Here's a very powerful clip of Johnston performing the song on organ. [more inside]

her theme

A song I recorded several years ago. I thought I would someday go back and fix the numerous rythmic imperfections and scratchy guitar but have since lost the make file, changed recording software and generally made my peace. Beware of turntable.
