CMAR MMX

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

As is traditional, I have spent the entire year carefully crafting a new version of Justin Timberlake’s finest moment, Cry Me a River, and recorded it at almost at the last minute.

This year ukuleles feature heavily, along with a sort of swing jazz feel.

Cosmic String / Pavement Tribute

Monday, March 1st, 2010

So, February is over and I’ve got a bunch of new songs. Once they’ve been tidied up a bit, remixed, sorted, artworked and filtered there will be a new album called ‘Cosmic String’ for all to enjoy. Until then, you can hear the songs as they currently sound by going to my FAWM profile page.

Here’s ‘Driving Alongside a Train’, one of my favourites from the month.

I also have a song featured on ‘Show Me A Word That Rhymes With Pavement’, which is an excellent Pavement tribute album. I did ‘Zurich is Stained’ and I’m colossally proud of it. The other tracks are all great too – in fact you could say that they’re gold sounds!!!!

It is FREE.

INCOMING!

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

For some reason, after recording my second cover of Cry Me A River last year, and before playing it live twice, but after playing it live with a band in the olden days, but before now, I said “out loud” that I would record a new version every year until I died. A mysterious naked man reminded me of this recently, and I was thus forced into doing this:
