Song #5

For this song I employed the help of some live drums, the sequenced ones just weren't cutting it. I hauled all my gear to a bigger sort of closet, and we did two takes and called it good. I'd never recorded live drums before, and I didn't like doing it.

I swear, this song perfectly describes the girl. Lucky for me, she's onto some other poor soul. Aaahh...hindsight.
This won't be the last song on this subject, trust me.

Always best when heard thru headphones.


song #5 is called Original Girl

Song #4

Woo Hoo! This marks the first month of the One Song Per Week effort! To celebrate, I made an album in the Snocap store called 'The First Month' and you can get all 4 songs for just $2.99! That means you save...like...loads of money! Now, back to our regularly scheduled blog...

This song is based on the Persian myth of Laili and Majnun (think Romeo and Juliet, but way way earlier) and brought into the scope of things going on in my life.
A friend of mine gave to me a poem that he scribbled down from memory after we had been discussing luck and love and heartache. It was by Rumi, and it goes:
'Come come whoever you are
wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving
ours in not a caravan of despair
even if you have broken your vows a thousand times
come, come yet again,
come...'

Song #4 is called Laili

Song #3

Ever had a song that defined you at some time period in your life? Well, at one point for me it was the Talking Heads 'Memories Can't Wait.'
For Song #3, I was thinking alot about drugs. I wanted to write about the way it feels when it all starts getting out of control, and the unravelling really sets in. I had a tough time with the harmonies (some of them are friggin' high), but I think they finally came out ok. I really like the way it sounds in the headphones.

Song #3 is called My Last High

Song #2

I sat on the opening line of this song for a long time before it finally took shape. It started out as just a piano song, but soon decided it wanted to be a bit more rock and roll. I had the idea realization that a certain someone I used to know was just making people miserable as a way of settling an old score. All teeth and claws, she was.
This is also the 'radio edit' because the original has a very prominent 'f**k' in it. But i figured best to err on the side of caution here in the beginning.

Song #2 is called: Black Heart.

If you knew her, you would agree.
