Do The Rumble

Tried my hand at pulpy instrumental rock.

Bellwether

Ethereal and Haunting, but you can dance to it.

Miami Dice

My girlfriend said this would make a good theme song for a new Miami Vice reboot. I'm both proud and terribly ashamed of this notion.

Clean Wave

My attempt at a modern new wave instrumental, and a new way of recording with Ableton.

Fortune's Son

My 2nd FAWM song of the month. A waltz about the ocean.

More Than Anything

Experimenting with layering chords together in this short folky uke/guitar song. Also hoping the vocals blend well with the feel of this one.

Lack of Grace

I'm back after a long absence. Trying to get back in the pop song writing mode. Glad everyone is still making music here! This is my first song in months.

Follow

My girlfriend wanted me to write a simple ukulele song. This is it. Short and sweet.

Boxing Glove

Originally this was a 20's style uke crooner. But now it's um...something else. Straight pop.

Virgin Ears & Old Man Lies

This is my attempt at a GBV-style rocker. I put a guitar solo at the end as (kind of) a goof. I hope the musical irony gods will forgive me. Mixing this was a real bitch. I think I could go back and mix this 20 more times and still not be happy, but I gotta let it go. Any specific mixing/EQ advice on this is appreciated.

Still The Same

Short but fairly epic for me.

Save This Song For Me

This started as a waltzy uke crooner but grew a bit bigger. I love the old-timey sound. If only I could add parade instruments.

Something Happens

A VU style riffer. I recorded this a few years ago and just rediscovered it. I am quite fond of this one and the silly, posturing lyrics.

The Cynic

A relationship, coldly thought out from beginning to end, in just 97 words.

Far

Another uke-y croon, mellow and heartfelt.

Is There Any Difference?

Improvised song collaboration. I adore the outcome of this moody song. My friend Mark is on vocals, I was on guitar. Bass and piano were added later by me. We literally made this up as we recorded it. Never have made-up, almost gibberish lyrics sounded so meaningful.

Mildred

More uke-pop about girls.

Whatever You Give (I'll Take from You)

I always know the tricks you play, but I still get taken. Another poppy (and slightly ominous) uke tune. Hope you like it!

Sadie

As autumn arrives, it always gives me a feeling of glorious sad sentimentality, almost like a chemical reaction. Whether I actually have something to feel sentimental about or not, those chilly sun-filled days create a longing like a chemical reaction. This song is that feeling for me, when you can't get back the past, but flounder to try. Guitar and vox recorded live with a single guitar overdub.

The Proposal

Another uke tune. I really love the old novelty songs and this is my little contribution to that genre.

In the Constellation of the Pines

Revenge and ukulele.

Channel 19

I grew up when there were only three or four TV channels, no internet. Now people want to be micro-celebrities, and want their privacy to boot.

Goodnight, Dear

I started writing songs on ukulele about a year ago after giving up on the banjo. This is the sort of quaint, happy vibe that I like hearing with the uke. And yes, Paul was my favorite Beatle.

The Undertaker

This is my first post to MeFi music. I look forward to hearing a lot of great music. This is one of my more upbeat tunes despite the title.
