At this point I just need to acknowledge that childish major-key jams with samba feet are my home genre.
This gloomy synth jam was made on an airplane and finished late at night in my parents' home during an emotionally complicated visit.
I made this upbeat, major-key, low-fi-sounding jam entirely on my OP-1, the same gizmo used in these videos. The transitions aren't as good as they could be, but they're definitely a level up for me. The whole thing falls apart at the end in a glorious heap. A good LET'S GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY instrumental.
My good friend and music senpai Jeremy Blake wrote and recorded a song called "My Heart as Your Home" that I immediately fell in love with. I recently got a chance to record a cover of it with my younger brother. He played ukelele and sang the lead; I did all the arrangement, production, and backup vocals. I think it turned out really nicely.
Kinda of a bleepy-bloopy little instrumental jam. I'm really kind of fond of this one.
What happened was this: I discovered an Ableton tutorial about how to create a pretty convincing shitty-old-tape effect, and then I upgraded my phone to iOS 7 and heard the new ringtones (which are actually really nice), and then I started noodling around, and I made a little thing of which I am unreasonably fond.
A cover of Magnetic Fields' "You're My Only Home," recorded entirely on a Teenage Engineering OP-1.
This is a cover of Bishop Allen's "Butterfly Nets." While the song is a favorite of teenage girls on with ukeleles on Youtube, I am instead a 34-year-old baritone with Garageband and an OP-1.
