So I only wrote four songs this year for FAWM (the goal is 14), which is a little lame. I blame the President. But, as a show of my esteem for you, the listener, I'm appending five more tunes that I wrote over the course of last year AFTER February, all recorded in the same scratchy home recording kind of way.
These are all first take recordings (full disclosure: I DID multi-track Today Is Today, because it would have taken me HOURS to nail it live. I'll practice, I promise), so all miscues, swallowed words, dog toenails clicking, and other odd sounds are part of the "fun." Some of these may become beloved members of the canon, others may be stripped for parts and sold on the black market. Time will tell...

JH - All sounds, noises, strings, voices
Recorded live to Garage Band on iPhone at the Belleclaire, Catskill NY, August 2016-February 2017. "Engineered" and "Mixed" by JH.
Riffy power-pop with hooks to die for. High-energy and low-bullshit. I would play with these dudes every night of the week and twice on Saturday night (except we'd probably be too drunk after one). James Hearne
