Sleepy Song for Olivia

Olivia's Sleep Song

Lately I’ve been riffing on the guitar for my 9 month old daughter, Olivia, every night. Today I decided to take a moment and do a quick recording and bounce of some of the tunes I’ve been riffing on. We’ve been playing it for Olivia and so far she’s been sleeping sounder than ever before! Fingers crossed, maybe this will make life easier and happier for us all.

Understand

UnderstandKoht called me last Tuesday and said we should play music. Honestly, we accidentally started this loop in C# which made it extremely difficult to jam to this. But the song had good bones and thanks to a string of serendipitous events in the remixing process this thing came out pretty well. Especially when Crystal came home at 10:30 and busted out the Melodica.

I miss you Rob. I used a custom Logic Audio synth patch to do the bass. I’m stoked on how that part came out but really, there’s no substitute for Rob’s bass riffs.

The lyrics / cover art are following the theme…. what would it be like to talk to yourself when you were a kid? Do you think you would even listen to yourself?

Something About Indonesia

Something About IndonesiaAnother song from our jam session with Peter Koht and Crystal Birns on New Years Eve.

I added the bass line and some of the drums after the fact, but otherwise this is straight from their living room. We called it “Something About Indonesia” because Lindsey sang something about Indonesia :). I’m thinking that one thing that might help in these impromptu sessions is some sort of method for rapidly writing lyrics… like maybe I could come prepared with a list of topics, or a few rhyming chorus lines… Hmm… thinking about it…

Old Back in the New Year

Old Back in the New YearHappy New Years!!!

Peter Koht and Crystal Birns invited me and Lindsey to their house to play some tunes with them on New Years Eve.

Koht started with a Tom Waits riff. We lucked out and picked a solid drum loop on the first try. Sadly Rob was not available to join us so we had to pump up the guitar to lay down a bass track.

The old back in the new year motif came somewhere between the new years champagne and the Vicodin I took for my back :)
