New song: Unspecified Incident at Sea

December 4, 2011

Here’s a new song for today’s Atheist Advent, about some troubling incident at sea. I don’t know where, if anywhere, this plot line will go.


Atheist Advent 2011

December 2, 2011

I’ve started this year’s Atheist Advent! Two songs up so far, and a third currently in my head and about to be recorded. The third one is not exactly the po-faced nu-folk that I normally prefer to write. I’m not going to do much writing on this blog this year: please check out

and you can subscribe on iTunes off that page too. I’m podcasting more than filming this year. I don’t know why I got so fixed on film when music is so unarguably about sound.

for songs, chat and discussion. But I’ll come back here from time to time, certainly.

Happy Atheist Advent.


December 21: But to Mourn (Solstice 2010)

December 21, 2010

I meant to record this with the eclipse in the background, but I came up to the tower too late.

Please stay tuned, gentle viewer, for a better version of this song, and the last few songs of Atheist Advent 2010. This is the grim time of year, oh viewers in the North; the year is dead; but it will rise again on the third day. An unspectacular rise, to be sure, with just a shade less darkness, but another opportunity nonetheless (Australian viewers, please insert the antonyms of all the relevant terms in all this — or go to Juice Media for something less leadenly Northern hemisphere, and basically a lot better musically and political than anything I have done).

More notes and lyrics in the Liner Notes pages. Musings concerning the evils of Santa Claus, the wonders of activist students, and the speed at which a song can be written in the rain.
