It's on my Hubski bio, I think, but here's a soundcloud of my current stuff:

Hrm, not sure why that's not coming up as a URL, but it works. Not all of it is entirely complete, and none of it is mastered. I suspect it'll be a work in progress for a long... long time.

Here's a song I did a long long time ago, for old time's sake. Sounds like it was recorded in a tin can, and didn't get much ear time to the best of my knowledge, but for something I shit out over the course of a weekend, I'm still pretty proud of it:

Deep cuts, man... deep cuts.

Hey, here's a song I was just thinking about shooting out to the Hubski music club! Good timing on this post, thenewgreen. Made it last year with some buddies, abandoned it, just came back to it last night and putzed around a little bit. Could be a fun one for additions. Esp. in the rhythm department. But also in every other department. Long, but extremely easy to follow. Lemme know what you think, I can do all the requisite shout-outs in another post.

I listened to that song earlier tonight with Atticus (Shenandoah). I was listening to another friends music via youtube and decided to search Le Loup. I found a really cool "official video" for one of your songs that we both listened to and watched.

One thing I am going to try with Atticus is to go as long as I can without him watching any childish bullshit or kiddie-songs. I want him to be constantly surrounded by interesting and challenging music. But I suppose, some songs may bridge the divide. We really ought to make that our collaboration. A children's album that doesn't suck.

I feel like I recall the song Eidolons, I've heard it before, right? If not, it's great either way. Do you hear any percussion in it eventually? I dig the lead guitar work, crunchy and uninhibited. Nice work.

Children's music is a racket, dude. We could clean up, big time. Case in point- the song you linked, the point at which I took it down, had more plays than all of my "legit" soundcloud songs combined. Not sure whether to be cool with that or depressed.

Might've had Eidolons up a while ago. Never got off the ground from my end because it needs some serious investment re. drums, bass, non-electric guitars... basically everything I don't have access to or the wherewithal to play. Lead guitar was my friend/old guitarist. Miss playing with him. Or anybody.

Also, most of my songs have between 10 and 60 plays. The Itsy Bitsy Spider has 100 and 7 downloads (which is 7 more than most). Let's do it. Our kids will dig it and it could potentially pay for their education.

Not that it matters of course, but I'd still be interested to know: Who is the most played musician on Hubski?

Move to Chapel Hill. I have those things. Let's record children's songs and retire.
