Barry Phipps with Spare Machine. A Buddy Holly tune. Barry Phipps (Coctails) sent me his vocal/gtr track as a practice demo for a show in which I was part of his band. We didn't end up doing this song in the set, but I used it to make this recording. Buy Barry's record (of originals) here: http://bpapparel.co/products/barry-phipps-the-town-vinyl-lp,

An LCD Soundsystem song. Evidence that I am better suited as a mumble folky. Garageband drum loops, $50 piano, toy xylophone, toy tambourine-type thing, washtub bass, yelling.

Thanks, Lakeside. You're flow is fantastic on pretty much everything you put up here. I made a video in which I do some lip-synching-- you know, like a pro. http://youtu.be/Ewimjtg-nzs?list=UUCzRSP8PtfkuFlvj12Vv_Dw

I actually prefer your vocals here to Murphy's original. You're a little more subdued and I think it fits better. Awesome job.

Thanks, AreDaneel. Do you really write stuff on apps? If so, which one(s) do you like?

I use Caustic, which started as an Android app but is now on iOS, OSX and Windows. It's like a baby version of Reason (and written solely by a stay at home dad which blows my mind). Its only $8.
