Listen

2007 RPM Challenge (2007)

Combines technopop, rock distortion, reggae and hip-hop beats, poetry-circle strumming, Scott Joplin, orchestral strings, and teen angst lyrics. The singing is passable.

2008 RPM (2008)

Rock, New Wave, Synthpop, Electronica

Screw You Benny: 2009 RPM (2009)

The way things used to be and the way things could have been, at various tempos. Acoustic folk rock recorded on a borrowed DV camera, with influences from '90s alt-rock and '80s Goth / New Wave.

Bastardsword: 2010 RPM (2010)

Rough demos of a few songs that I wrote in 2010 ("Bastardsword," "Heart of Space," "30 x 23"), plus a bunch of other songs I had laying around that I had never recorded before. Some wrong pitches, some issues with recording and mixing. Ambient (or "melodic electronica") is a completely new direction for me.
