[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.

The starting six, Or: “Re-release”

The first six “releases” are music that spans from 1995-2006, including the first things I ever recorded on four-track. I’m doing this as a way to consolidate it all, and maybe drum up more interest in some of the later better stuff (like the Low Hello EP, the Square Miles EP and Tenille).

Each release will have a separate blog post for it, containing the links to the individual songs, a ZIP file of the songs and any additional images or video (for easy download of everything), and other info. The Releases page will have just the titles and cover images, and clicking on the cover images will take you to the particular blog post for that release. Got it?

Oh, by the way, I’m putting Tenille up for free. It’s my one and only CD I made for actual sale (it’s for sale on iTunes and on CDBaby right now for some amount of money… I haven’t seen a single cent any of the slim sales I’ve made through those avenues). But I’ve decided that it’s better to have people hear all the songs rather than just the two I used as advertising for the for-sale CD.

I’m also going to be retroactively filling in more information about each one later, including cover shots (some of which don’t exist yet, like for King Filament and The Square Miles).

Anyway, enjoy!
