The Crow on the Cradle

A quick recording of a way I've been messing around with approaching an old song. I think the time-signature change makes it seem a bit more bitter and a little less sinister, which is interesting, if not necessarily better.

A friend of mine lost her pet black rabbit recently. A conversation about it led to me digging out this old (c. 2007?) recording.

Homeward On

A sort of sixties-ish jangly folk-pop demo with a couple of synthy touches.
