Adieu Papillon A very emotional organ-based underscore

I recorded this piece of music as the underscore for a radio piece I created a few years ago. The piece was about finding a cassette tape of my late grandfather talking my grandmother through an illness. It is very emotional, a little sad but with a glimmer of some positivity in there as well….

Vampire’s Lament A retro-horror inspired lament led by a crunchy electric guitar and a theremin

I’ve got a real soft spot for fun, knowingly-cheesy horror – especially the music that accompanies it. Horror punk & psychobilly get played a lot around here. With that in mind, I sat down on this rainy Sunday and made a sad lament, something Dracula might listen to while he ponders the meaning of the…

Square Tired Bicycle A funky descending melody with an off-kilter ukelele

This is a track I’ve had around for a while. I had been listening to Damon Albarn a lot when I first wrote this and loved something about the idea of a slowly de-tuned staccato synth as the main melody in a song. You’ll hear what I mean during the intro of this piece –…

When It All Falls Apart Aching electric guitar for underscoring desolate scenes

I’ve been working hard to create more ‘underscores’ on the music supply – tracks that are well suited to being put in the background of your project. This music kit is a great fit if you are working on anything apocalyptic or emotionally heavy. I plugged in a big, reverb-y electric guitar and just let…

Spring Feelies Uplifting indie pop for that spring pick-me-up

Yea I get the feelies sometimes, what! Spring is arriving, the sun feels so much warmer and I woke up this Sunday morning and recorded a poppy, uplifting track. That’s all I can say, enjoy this, feel good, spring is here! Please note that all freebies are Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International┬álicense. This means that you can…

The Bad Kids Big bad vibes cruisin' down shady back alleys!

This track has been months in the making – I kept going to post it, listening back and thinking “Oooh, it’d be really fun to add a little more here or there”. There were more than one (actually A LOT) of giddy moments dancing around the studio in the production of this. If you need…

Fake News A head bobbing groove with a futuristic 5 o'clock news vibe

I am reeeally stoked about this track. This one was one of those times you sit down, hit record and something kinda cool just comes out. I named it “Fake News” because the loop in the intro of the song reminded me of one of those old fashioned 5 O’Clock News stinger sounds that they…

Apparitions A moody suspense backdrop with big pitch bends

I wrote this song on the bass, early in the morning on a reeeally foggy day. That’s almost exactly the vibe you’ll hear, subtle, slow-moving creepiness that would make a great backdrop for any suspenseful project. Right at 30 seconds in, there’s a huge pitch bend up that would make a great ‘reveal’ before the…

Same Thing Every Day A laid back beat with a catchy bassline

Wait for the beat to drop on this one – it’s got a long intro that would make a great fade-in under dialogue/narration and then a found sound beat and catchy bass line take over. This track reminds me of the walk to the subway that some people do everyday, or the strangers who you…

Feelin’ Pretty Good A bass groove that'll make ya happy.

This is a groove that I came up with while jamming about a year ago – but it’s stuck with me the whole time. Something about it is so simple and head-bob-inducing that it feels really good. As our first release of 2019, I figured what better way to start out the year than feelin’…

At Rest A lofi, relaxed vibe in two parts

Continuing with my “lofi” series, here is a very relaxed composition with a solid backbeat running throughout. The song has a transition about halfway through which ushers in a really nice electric guitar melody and then fades into it’s outro. If you are looking for something lofi and chill for your project, this tune might…

Heartbreaker A song to make any situation a wee bit sad...

This one’s a bit of a personal one. I dug it out of my archives from a time I was feeling pretty blue – but thought it had some quality to it that might work really well in the right project. If you need something acoustic based, with a hint of sadness, give this tune…
