simple songs

they are my favorite.
a note or two, maybe a great couple of chords–wonderful.
i’m sick of bands and music and shows and uploading and downloading and analyzing and criticizing.

a simple song. lyrics are best left out if they don’t do anything.
where am i going anyway?

i’ll turn it up and bury my head in the speaker.
if i listen close enough, i can hear
that once
i felt something
that seemed important
but now i forget…

and now i feel stupid and useless.

new music! new fun! new psychoses!

ieatpants is proud to present “simulation of an artist

this collection of songs turned out to be much more personal than i had anticipated… that’s because i started with a goal of combining a love of echoey guitars and effects-laden loops with a few jaunty acoustic tunes about cramming my giant legs into the smallest airline seat ever. but it turned out all the songs are by the same guy. as fucking pretentious as it sounds, i’m really happy with the way this album turned out… the last 12 tracks were recorded all at once and probably could stand to be their own little EP, but I feel like they are representative of the struggle between making a catchy or silly song and creating a moody, atmospheric guitar piece… plus i love the cover–i used a blank CD insert, my old scanner, an extra messy marker, and some nifty images of J.L. Borges and i can’t believe how excelelnt it came out.

ok, i’m done telling you how awesome i am.

in addition, i have lately been playing music with an old friend. we’ve put together a nice representation of how fun we are: The Gentlemen of the Western Reserve – “The Rise and Fall of the West(ern Reserve)”

recorded in one saturday in a living room while someone was in the kitchen cooking up various meats for us to try… i recomend “horse race jubilee” and “bunnies” to get you started.

and finally, believe it or not, more updates soon!
