Asteroids

There's a saying that aging is like sailing into an asteroid field, where the asteroids get thicker and thicker until one hits you. This is a song about that. One take everything. Video.

Shame the Devil (Turn it Up)

Quick if somewhat epic demo knocked together over the weekend... featuring glockenspiel, mellotron, piano, and baritone twang. Video shenanigans featuring multiple clones over here.

Almost Over

Another track off the new album, with bonus video and links to the evolution of the song from a first sketch as posted here on MeFiMu.

A Darker Shade of Blue

The lead track off the album we just released. Like a lot of tracks on the album, I posted early versions of it here on MeFiMu so it might be fun to track the 19-year evolution from acoustic ballad to powerpop anthem.

Kingdom Come (15 Metaphors for Love)

There were originally 23 metaphors but it was 8 too many.

Don't Walk Away

I recorded this in my pyjamas, then overdubbed some stuff, and I like it. Video, too.

Another live version of a song I posted several versions of previously. With living video!

Someone to Love (live)

Live version of a song I posted a demo of a while back, featuring my friend John on the mighty Hammond A100 (a B3 essentially). An interesting moment, in that it's the culmination of a long journey that I lived out here on MeFiMu, originally as unSane, then Sweet Mister, and now Sportswriters.

Where My Mind Goes

The artist formerly known as unSane here, now posting as Sportswriters because that's my band and to a large extent it grew out of my experiences here. I grew disillusioned with MeFi overall but Music will alway have a piece of my heart. We're now recording an album which I'll start posting soon but in the meantime, I sat on the porch and wrote a murder ballad. Here's a very rough demo. Very much influenced by Chuck Jackson, Aaron Neville and Little Anthony and the Imperials, dripping in vibrato guitar and soul chops. I think the final version will have some spooky strings and backing vocals, and not be as out of time as this!
