During the horror show that was 2020, I sometimes felt like a passenger on a plane flown by a madman. Then it hit me... I'd heard that story before. I ended up doing a cover of a classic, prescient song by my ultimate art hero Laurie Anderson. It's the first song I've recorded under my Maxx Klaxon moniker in some years. (Longtime MeFites might remember my contribution to the MeFiComp back in 2006... but I can't find a link to it.) Check it out on Bandcamp... and remember, it's Bandcamp Friday today (May 7), so for all purchases before midnight, 100% of the money goes directly to the artists.
As the IAAF World Champions begin, a 45 minute ode to the Decathlon. For the "lead single", I made a videoclip [warning: strobes] inspired by Le vol d'Icare by Georges Schwizgebel. AND a 90s site to boot! [more inside]

You can listen for free on BandCamp and of course if so inclined can buy the tracks. We recorded this in our practice space/basement on a laptop, but I think it sounds pretty darned good. Let me know what you think. Thanks! Bonus Bluster Fact: The band met on OkCupid [more inside]
Hey MetaFilter, I have put together an 'album' of short covers I recorded between 2009 and 2011. Most of them I have posted to Music MetaFilter in the past, but I thought it would be fun to wrap them together a bit and hopefully it will inspire me to record more again. Includes guitar, bowed banjo, pump organ, harmonica, piano, whistling etc. [more inside]
