[PTS003 - LP] Songs of the Month 2005

Songs of the Month was a project I did in 2005 (obviously, from the title). It was mainly an exercise for me to keep me writing songs constantly. It worked out pretty well. I only really dropped the ball in two months (which I suppose IS 1/6 of the year), and made up for one of them in January 2006. Anyhow, a few of these songs (Nostalgia Makes Confusion, Lying Down, Recess, The Down Side) ended up being used as material for the band I put together later on, The Low Hello. So the exercise proved fruitful. It’s interesting (to me at least) to compare and contrast these Song of the Month versions with what we did in The Low Hello.

[PTS001 - LP] King Filament - The Unlucky Palindrome

All of these songs were written and recorded during my college years. Some friends (and some acquaintances) lived in house whose address was 1331. I came up with the nickname the Unlucky Palindrome (you know, 13) and it kinda stuck. Some lucky things and some unlucky things happened there, but in retrospect, for my musical development, perhaps the luckiest thing was that my friend Jim needed somewhere to keep his drums, and my bedroom was just big enough to have them set up, and to have my bed in the large closet. I had purchased a BOSS BR-8, which recorded on expensive Zip disks, and one interesting summer I wrote and recorded these songs.

[PTS000 - LP] King Filament

My friend Keith got a Tascam four track recorder sometime in 1995, I think it was. I was very excited. I was in a band called the Immigrants, and we were getting our first taste of the excitement of songwriting. It was 1995 I think. I was 15 or something. I was learning chords and mastering barre chords — seriously exciting. But in the Immigrants, I’d write songs sometimes, and the singer, a good friend still, James, would sing them. I needed to know what it was like to do songs on my own. A friend with a four track willing to record you and a bunch of new song ideas — INCREDIBLY exciting.
