some new songs I am working on (please excuse the awful singing):
In Like A Lion (a tongue-in-cheek bluegrassy bit)
Out Like A Lamb
Camera Obscura
Masquerade
Lullaby Argentine

some older instrumental stuff that uses some industrial-esque noises:
All Saints Day
Narcolepsy
Chill Wind
Vibrate Like Real

If the mods want, they can move this to the off topic forum.  I don't mean to spam; just sharing. 

I am into a lot of different stuff, and the newer work has been me trying to branch out from my normal background of noisy and fast rock/punk/whatever to use a lot more traditional instruments like the banjo, concertina, mandolin, & violin and to just slow down a bit (other than that first one).

If anyone else wants to share their music, I'd love to hear it.  I noticed there were at least a couple of other banjo & guitar players out there.

I really love your music.

the steamiest instrumental is all saint day with his clockworky sound.

in the singing ones, in like a lion,out like a lamb,camera obscura and lullaby argentine seems all very steamy too.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Hey those tracks with vocals remind me a lot of the old 70's Australian Post-Punk band The Boys Next Door (featuring a very young Nick Cave on vocals), your voice also kind of reminds me of the singer from Pere Ubu. With that said, I don't think you have a terrible voice at all. Personally I don't get the Steampunk thing from the vocal tracks, but they are good regardless. Maybe upon repeated listenings the influence will appear more.

All Saint's Day is cool too, it reminds me of some experimental mid-80's bands.

If you want to hear bad singing listen to my vocal tracks (lol).

well, I suppose I was thinking the newer were only mildly steamy in the sense of instumentation use more than lyrical content, although there are some "handmade" (lol) clicky/machine-ish noises going on in Camera Obscura and Lullaby Argentine.

Oh yeah, no I agree. I can here what you are referring to, however for me, I have a very specific idea of what steampunk would sound like. But please don't feel discouraged. The reason I made my own music was to emulate my own personal idea of Steampunk. Some people call anything that I would refer to as weird americana Steampunk, while I just call it weird americana (you know that folksy, bluegrass carnival/sea shanty sounding stuff). But I do agree that the mechanical sounds do add a bit of a steampunk flair to those tracks.

Regardless, of what I'd classify your stuff as, I think it's good, and it sounds cool.

Same here.  Grin

Hawthorne - Good stuff! I especially your industrial style music, because that's the sort of sound I'm personally into. Do you have a myspace music page to promote your delightful sounds?

Some of it's pretty steamy, some not so much.  But who cares either way, it's all good.  I'm downloading now. Smiley
