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 –…

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…

Arcade Heroes A retro 8-bit arcade theme for all the beautiful geeks

Sometimes a song is born out of just playing around with all the instruments I’ve collected/sampled/etc. over the years. That’s the case here. I found an old 8-bit emulator and just had a bunch of fun with it to create this retro-arcade inspired song. Give it a download if you need a peppy old vintage…

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…

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…

Alien Tongues An odd sci-fi vocal melody

I was inspired by the Golden Record that was shot into outer space on one of the Voyager missions when I sat down to record this track. I asked myself, “What if you had to write a song in an extra-terrestrial language?” The main melody that you hear is my own voice, altered to sound…

Carpenteresque A classic synth horror theme inspired by John Carpenter

I watched one of the Halloween movies recently and just couldn’t get over how iconic that theme song by John Carpenter is. It’s incredible how simple, catchy and perfect it is for that movie. In the spirit of that, I wanted to pay homage to John Carpenter by recording this music kits that was inspired…

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’…

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…

Step Up To The Mic An inspirational build that grows slowly with lush strings

Sometimes when I sit down to record, it’s with a very specific idea in mind. With this track, the goal was to score one of those scenes near the end of a movie where the main character has a big revelation, steps up the the mic and gives a feel good speech that ties the…
