Everyone I Know

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.

Resistor - Keep it to Yourself

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.

Resistor - Insecure

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.

Resistor - Vincent van Gogh

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.

Resistor - David the Gnome

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.

Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies - "July"

"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.

The Ballad of Cherry Hill

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.

Shutterbug

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.

Things I Used to Know (demo)

"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
