Listen

Raised By Motorcycles (2009)

Aside from a few hammerhead beats, every sound on this album was recorded in my bedroom, then looped and/or otherwise manipulated. Instruments used for this album include guitar, toy accordion, ornamental hunting trumpet, computer desk, battery-operated keyboard (lovingly dubbed "powersockey" due to some idiosyncratic English on it's casing), scissors, cellular phone, and beer bottle.

Where I Yet Was Not Never (2010)

All sounds recorded live to my computer, then looped and otherwise manipulated in ACID music studio. Album title inspired by an online personal ad in broken English.

Broads Of Canada (2011)

Inspired by the second side of the album Neu! 2 by Neu!, this album features two original compositions and nine experimental remixes of them. Okay, okay, aside from Neu!, it was also inspired by my own procrastination.

Mikipede (2012)

Album title provided by Poland. This album features my first real experiments with sung vocals ("Page 37" and "My Fellow Ghosts"), and well, that's something I need to keep working on.

Maybe Next Year (2017)

There have been a few times I've missed the RPM deadline or skipped it altogether, so I thought it would be amusing to give an album I completed within the deadline the title "Maybe Next Year". The other significance of the title is that I started feeling that some of this material was too similar to songs I already wrote, so I've been telling myself that next February I would try to go outside my usual methods.
