Tech Support

This, one of my longer songs, is a sort of homage to Parliament/Funkadelic keyboardist extraordinaire Bernie Worrell. This is also about a couple of friends who broke up as I was working on the song and still were relying on each other for technical support. I also worked in a call center, which has a lot to do with this song. From March, 2001.

I tried to remix this a bit just now but I can't find the source files anywhere. I was able to remaster is slightly, though.

Deadly Friend

This song, ostensibly combining the 1980s style of Hall and Oates with Frank Zappa's "Valley Girl", which was originally composed and recorded in 2003, and which clocks in at just over a minute, is based on everyone's favorite Wes Craven film from 1986. I saw this movie on Channel 20 out of Detroit when I was in High School and it really terrified me. I think some of that spirit of terror manages to come through in the song. Enjoy!

For the first tune of this week, we have a completely brand-new tune that I just now put the finishing touches on. It's a dreamy electronic-type piece (and at four-minutes, it's relatively long by my standards) which expresses some of the frustration one feels when reading Google news all day (not that I or anyone I know actually does that). Katie came up with a couple of "AisFors" when I was running a little short without having any idea what nefarious purpose they'd be used for, so I guess I'm forever grateful to her for that.

Anyway: heat up some chai, dim the lights, turn up your speakers, and enjoy.

Happy Friday! As promised, here is the second tune for this week: "Family". This is an acid-jazz type tune (though only two minutes) I did almost two years ago, but just recently (today, in fact) remastered and re-encoded. I hope you enjoy it.
