A new cover song – Wild Horses

Yep, a cover of the Rolling Stones classic; I’m part of a group that’s trying to do a cover a month. This is very electronic and uses a lot of vocoder too, I hope you like it!

Two new covers of Never Tear Us Apart

I’ve just posted two new covers of Never Tear Us Apart, one in a Delta blues style and one in a ’60s girl group style. A happy accident led me to the second one – you can read about it on SoundCloud. I hope you enjoy them!

Stayin’ Alive – It’s not just for disco anymore

I’m a member of a group of musicians that are working to get better at mixing and mastering. And we’ve started doing some cover projects. I’m not big on doing covers – licensing is a mess and I’d rather spend time composing than dealing with legal stuff. The latest project is Stayin’ Alive by the […]

Lyrics for Robot Sex

Because the robot voices can be hard to understand, I thought it would be good to post the lyrics along with some commentary about the words for each song. Robot Sex The lyrics were constructed – I created a list of words with the trans- prefix that I felt described some aspect of robot sex; […]

Robot Sex Album Notes
