From Dwight to a Dude.
More material from the sessions with EMHU out in Palo Alto. I really like this track but never got the name for it. I can’t tell you where this extrapolation and modulation came from, but I dig and I hope you do. This is one for the headphone heads.

We were really good in Nueget / Megaspore Mothercell about getting an idea and then taking it to completion. We didn’t really have a song per se when we started here, but we sure did at the end of it. It’s definitely got that Sonic Youth garage vibe we were heading towards. This is just Steve and I while we were in-between bassists (which was quite often).
Props Steve.
And as a bonus, here’s the overdub version of White Rainbow complete with guitar shreds.

Filling a request here with some more full mixes (expect more).
This one comes as a birthday present / documentation / <3 letter from the summer of 2003. The inspiration from that summer had kicked in to full blown detonative status and so this grew out of a need to explode. It's also the last mix I did in the cut n' paste style via CD Architect. The title is (incorrectly) a reference to a trip to the Gulf Coast that I was trying to commemorate. The 'Live' thing is also totally a joke, as this is calm, contemplated, coolness. Includes hits from, but not limited to: Radiohead Daft Punk Phoenix Bit Meddler Bran Van 3000 etc, etc... Download: Noggin – Live from Tiki Island (full mix) (right click and choose ‘save as’)

An amazingly talented good friend of mine named Jordan recorded this and sent it to me either while I was in Austin or while I was in limbo / homeless between Austin and California. On a whim, I asked him to send the tracks and let me try to add a piano, which I did using my piano in Bryan (slightly in a honky tonk tuning, no?). I do not consider myself a piano player, but I do consider myself a musician and I will play whatever you throw at me. Having said that, don’t throw pianos at me right now. Put this one together by ear, then grabbed the only mic I had (thanks again Thoams) and recorded this while my dad ate beans in the kitchen and my mom scoured the internet for travel deals (she was really good at that). If you listen close enough, my cat, The Baron Archimedes Von Resonator Al-Stimpson de Chenonceau even has a part in this.
Thank you Jordan for being such an inspiration.
ps. there is another version of this somewhere that has a crazy glitched out guitar solo I’ll try to find and upload later.
