Tell Yourself

I suppose this is the equivalent of my last yay new instrument song. Banjo, 'lectric guitar, 'lectric drums, singin. [more inside]

Pretty and Disheveled

We totally spelled this wrong on our EP. Hope y'all like it.

Trucks n' Stuff: Beck Cover

For no good reason, here is a random cover that came out of an evening spent trying to get to grips with multitracking in Cool Edit pro...

Concrete Creeper

Loopy, mostly off-the-cuff, more-or-less-zero-production bass-and-vocal thing? Primusoidal TomWaitsishness with the slop cranked way up? Lyrics and vocals courtesy of this guy over here.

This is a rethink of a song I posted earlier this year. [more inside]

gone

I think this is one of the catchier songs I've come up with in a while, though I never seem to be a good judge of that. At any rate, it's a short and simple track about intense love gone missing... or something like that. [more inside]

the end

A "drifty" and atmospheric song about life and death and love, complete with harp. [more inside]

hungry heart

This is a lazy pseudo-live cover of the Bruce Springsteen song, recorded on a whim a couple of years ago.

Caravan (rehearsal)

The Smoke Alarm Sessions, cont'd. I've been learning Caravan. I love the way Ellington did it a lot. Nowadays so many people play it very straight ahead, & I think that gets boring. So we experimented. At first Barry tried to put a funk beat behind it, but I'm not sure about it. On the second chorus I was thinking that since I've been to Egypt I should use that as inspiration to experiment with different melodies. I think in the future I'll probably take that a lot further, I kind of liked the feel. So, we'll see.

If I Had You

4/10/07 rehearsal recording in LA. Trying out some new repertoire... well, new for me. This adorably sweet little song was written in 1928. I decided not to put any kind of modern spin on it, but to just sing it slow and straight. (Guitar by the always adorable Barry Zweig.)

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!?

You've Changed (guitar/vocal)

This is a very rough recording (of quite possibly my favorite ballad ever) from a rehearsal in LA a year or so ago. I was working on possible CD repertoire with jazz guitarist extraordinaire, the oh-so-adorable Mr. Barry Zweig. (Written in 1942 by Bill Carey & Carl Fischer, You've Changed has been beautifully recorded by Dexter Gordon, Billie Holiday, Nancy Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Nat King Cole, Kay Starr, Diana Ross, Charlie Shavers & Eva Cassidy, among others.)

Cry Me A River

Happy Sunday, hive mind! Well, I haven't been performing jazz much since moving to the Bay area. I'll confess, I've missed my musicians in LA (see song title) & just haven't found my niche/comfort zone up here yet. For a while, I was commuting down South to work on a CD but it got to be too difficult... so my musical life has been in limbo & this year I REALLY hope to change that. If you folks say you'd like to hear more mp3s, I do have some. And hey... if there's someone out there who would seriously like to collaborate with (or hire) this chick singer... I'm all ears and open to advice. I also take requests! :) I miss singing for people... (Incredible basswork courtesy of the fab-u-lous Chris Conner, my dear friend)

slow happy south

I put this together days after being given a banjo as a gift. It is made up of the one roll and four chords I knew at the time (about a year ago). It doesn't really kick in for like :40 so give it a bit. (horn stabs at the end are sampled.)

Next Train

The first track I recorded for my college course (so technically the first track I recorded properly...sort of). The brief was to record a track using layered vocals - 24 vocal tracks in all. I dug out this old song (think I was about 16 or 17 when I wrote it) to do the job.

My Dream

Song from the band I used to play in, Go On Red. Rock and Roll song with a ska edge.

Worse Than Pop - We Can Clone Knight Rider Fans, We Have the Techno

I am a lonely man, with only Audacity for company.
This is my first attempt at a multitrack recording. I don't have a real microphone, so it's really lo-fi. I also apparently have no clue how to master, so the levels will scare you. I welcome suggestions, death threats, etc.
