This is a recently recorded song that'll probably go on my next release. I'm not sure yet about the mix, but I guess it's good enough in its current state for a spin around the MeFi block. Party down y'all. [lyrics inside]</small]
This is a tune from a 1995 release called "Samm Bennett's History of the Last Five Minutes", from the Knitting Factory label. The CD is currently out of print. The guitarist is Hahn Rowe, everything else is me. I've been thinking about re-releasing this and possibly my earlier KF CDs on my own label (Yay! Rights have reverted back to yours truly!) but I've got a bunch of new songs I wanna release first. Thought I'd just throw this one out there into the ether. Anyway, [lyrics inside] and, hope you enjoy...
A track from an EP I just released called Friendly Songs. The five songs were written for livejournal friends who responded to a memepost.
This downtempo "weirdo-falsetto" number is a track by Clearspeaks featuring edlundart. The music was written and produced by Clearspeaks while I wrote the lyrics and vocal melody. I also performed the vocal and created the vocal snippets used in the background, similar to what I did on "elevate."
Another entry for the song-a-day (pt 2!) project. This one's got a sweet glorified click-track for a drumbeat, and even more vocal overdubs!
First song from round 2 of my song-a-day project (previously on metafilter projects). On-the-spot songwriting fun with many, many overdubs!
A calm and smooth falsetto song with lyrics lifted from an emergency first aid poster (with some additions turning it into a love song). Features guitar, bass, piano, and electronica-style rhythmic vocal snippets.
Hey all. This is my band out in Philly, we're called the BUICKS. The band has been together for quite a while but this is our first recording with our new label Teletone Records. It's a mish mash of blues, soul, r&b etc....philly style. We call it Americana for lack of a better word. Anyway, this is one of the slow songs featured on the cd. Hope you all enjoy.
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....
Something a bit different. Vocal samples (mine) cut up and arranged in a sort of chorale form against a bluesy backdrop.
A slow and sad song I wrote and recorded after a breakup/separation a few years ago. Features a falsetto chorus and acoustic guitar, including an e-bow undercurrent.
Another new one from the new Ice Cream Creatures EP. Vocals with a strong beat. Love gone bad. But Love is good.
A new track from my band, Ice Cream Creatures. sliced and diced female vocals, acoustic guitar, glitchy beats. Good for the soul.
Shakuhachi player meets Roberta Flack, Redd Foxx and John Wilbye in a bar. "for if one flaming dart come from her eye, was never dart so sharp, ah, then you die, you die."
A short noir soundtrack. by Audiosports (http://www.albertoforero.com)
A light-hearted vocal tune/experiment - all sounds are from my own voice, including the potentially craptacular quasi-beatboxing in the middle. Enjoy!
