Have a merry Synthmas with this peaceful electronic soundscape from the Men's Snarehouse.
An upbeat synthwave / retrowave instrumental.
A Men's Snarehouse production. Watch the video.
I can't believe you've done this. Electro-dance-pop.
In honor of tomorrow's blu-ray release, I recorded a new take on the classic Lynch/Badalamenti theme, "Falling," from Twin Peaks.
This is a song about an artist dying for attention. From the forthcoming album First World Problems by Resistor.
Resistor celebrates springtime with a lush new single, "Everyone I Know." This hook-laden dance-pop number is seasoned with Resistor's cynical charm, pondering whether originality can exist if a person is merely a product of his environment. Of course, the existentialism lurks beneath many layers of burbling synths, glitchy drum machines, and boy-girl harmonies.
"If You Don't Cry" by Resistor (originally performed by The Magnetic Fields).
Another bit of synthpop metacommentary in the form of the funny-cause-it's-sad-cause-it's-true inner monologue of a cynical artist.
My take on the McCartney Christmas tune.
The 11th entry in the monthly series of homemade synthpop singles from Resistor, "Narcissist" does what it says on the tin.
A simple electro-ukulele ode to solitude and song.
"I'll Refuse" is a synthpop doowop revenge song. There's a video here.
This one is a sparkly nugget of synthpop about the bitter, self-sabotaging adolescent lurking within all of us. Or at least within me. It's classic Resistor.
A homemade synthpop tune about the myth of the meritocracy and the pain of being an artist without an audience, like something Stephin Merritt could've come up with on a dreary evening in an alternate universe where The Magnetic Fields never got popular.
This is an electro version of the theme song to the children's show "The World of David the Gnome," which aired in the US on Nickelodeon from 1987 to 1995.
A new synthpop song from Resistor about all the lies we agree to believe in so we can make it through the day.
A synthesized take on the Beach Boys by Resistor.
A minor-key waltzing synthpop lament of being unemployed and underappreciated.
Resistor vs. Lana Del Rey
Resistor makes real songs for synthetic lives.
This is the lead-off track from The Flood, the new album by Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies, released today.
"July" is the promo single from the upcoming Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies EP. "July" is the feel-good song of the month, if not the century. "July" is a tale of love, summertime, and ephemeral youth, told in the timeless language of pop music.
This Borges-inspired track appears on the new Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies EP, Labyrinths, available now for streaming and download. The demo was posted here.
This is the lead-off track from the forthcoming EP, Labyrinths, by Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies, to be released 1/7/10. It's a wistful slice of indie-pop about insomnia, suburban isolation, and the boredom of hometowns.
Just another folk-rock song about Jorge Luis Borges.
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo, la la la, la la la la. The new hit single from Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies. A chamber-pop meditation on time, aging, and death.
I recorded this version of the old Christmas standard with the original, depressing-as-hell lyrics. Check out this FPP for the backstory.
Silent Night with acoustic guitar, ukulele, and 4 part vocals.
"Our minds are permeable to forgetfulness; I myself am distorting and losing, through the tragic erosion of the years, the features of Beatriz." -- Jorge Luis Borges
This is a cover of Engine by Neutral Milk Hotel. The original was the B-side of Holland, 1945. I made this recording in honor of the tenth anniversary of In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.
This is the first thing I've recorded in awhile. It's a song about Christmas that I wrote for Surfjam Stevens. I recorded it in my bedroom with a little help from my friends.
Here's a track from my album about wanting to be a robot. I figure lots of you folks can probably relate. My band is currently touring the east coast, with dates in VA, NC, WV, MD, PA, NJ, NY, CT, and VT. Details inside!
A Metafilter exclusive! This is the studio version of my contribution to the meficomp. It's the second track from my new album, which is available now.
The opening track from my upcoming LP. Handclaps, ooh bop bops, fiddles, and flutes.

Julia / you've got a lovely uvula / I wanna take you to Florida / so please say yes We'll start a family / play lots of D&D / and watch the Goonies / on VHS
A Neutral Milk Hotel cover, and the first studio recording with my new group. Coming soon to your town!
Cover of a John Vanderslice song about Requiem for a Dream.
Now that the summer's ending, there's a cold wind blowing in / So we've got to build some shelter, before it rains again
Ooh, bop bop, ba-ooh, bop bop. All I know is the road and I love you.
Acoustic demo about what I did during the Cold War.
Demo of a song about being far away from the spy you love. With acoustic guitar and tuba.
