What's Happened Then to Now v1


Svetlana stuff: Progress

Gwynn and I recorded some vocals and she played organ on it. This is going to be on our band's upcoming album. This is only one verse... Lyrics are as follows:


it's all i do

to forget you

when i miss you

i think of the bad times

you gave me like a

trojan whore

We finished all of my vocals on Tuesday, and we plan to finish Gwynn's this weekend. :)

  1. anna ternheim - lovers dream
  2. the shins - turn on me
  3. sandie shaw - hand in glove (smiths cover)
  4. rocketship - naomi and me
  5. rumbskib - springtime
  6. daylight's for the birds - worlds away
  7. interpol - not even jail
  8. magnetic fields - all the umbrellas in london
  9. guided by voices - the best of jill hives
  10. her space holiday - key stroke
  11. jenny lewis and the watson twins - the big guns
  12. sufjan stevens - let's hear that string part again...
  13. sufjan stevens - in this temple as in the hearts of man for whom he saved the earth
  14. ladytron - all the way
Now a disclaimer: I didn't really have the capability to edit the songs together so they flow since I wasn't at home when I put this together. Here's a link to the .zip file containing the mix. Enjoy!


Cover Versus Original: The Smiths' Last Night I Dreamt

It took me a while to get into The Smiths, but now after years of listening to them nonstop I love them. Initially, I was a big fan of the earlier and more Rockabilly-influenced Morrissey stuff. (Many of his early b-sides are the best solo material he's released.) The other night a friend sent me this string version of Last Night I Dreamt and I decided to pull out the original as well as the Low version from a few years ago. Which is better? Doesn't matter -- it's a solid song.
