Rapper's Delight - Performed by Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant

Just in time for the song's 40th anniversary, I edited together the voices of Siri, Alexa & Google Assistant to make their first ever rap collaboration, a cover of the hip-hop classic, Rapper’s Delight. Yes, this is the kind of thing TV editors do when they're unemployed.

Ukulele song book index, and chord tracker

I like to play the ukulele everyday. I know a bunch of chords but not all of them. I wanted to have a tool that searches song books based on which chords I already know, so I could discover new songs and navigate my books better. Click the chord diagrams you know, and it displays a directory of all the songs you can play with those chords. [more inside]

SoundTalk - Turn forum conversations into playlists

SoundTalk is a Chrome extension that finds song titles in the current page and generates a Spotify playlist. For example, with two clicks it turns this recent Ask thread about ultra sparse music into this playlist. It's different from other tools because it looks for any text that seems like a song title, rather than just finding links to known music services. More playlists and suggested uses below the fold.

Same Rat, Different Hat

The debut record from Out of System Transfer, a neo-old-timey band who sing punk-influenced folk songs about the assassination of William McKinley, hitting cops in the head with a brick, and riding the subway. Their sound has been compared to the Holy Modal Rounders, Mojo Nixon, and Mischief Brew. With physical media sales becoming less viable, it made little sense to get CDs printed (plus, no one in the band even had a working CD player), but it also felt wrong to forego the great potential offered by album covers and liner notes, not to mention the feeling of having a tangible thing for fans to have. Thus, the record was released as a zine, (also bundled with the download as a pdf) with original artwork commissioned for each song by various Brooklyn-based artists. [more inside]

"Wii U" parody song

I saw the announcement video for Nintendo's new console, the "Wii U" yesterday morning, and immediately after that someone sent me a YouTube video of William Shatner's cover of Cee-Lo's "Fuck You". A terrible idea was thus born in my tiny brain, so I cranked this out yesterday afternoon. Enjoy.
