Fun With Garageband: Muxtape Edition

Longtime readers of Short Schrift know that, like many, many other people, I enjoy messing around with GarageBand, the music creation app that comes with Macs. I posted an earlier song here last September; but now I am ready to reveal a fully-fledged 5-song "Fun With Garageband" EP.

What are you in for? Well, the software is (like the Nintendo Wii) fun but limited, so it's a lot of chamber-pop in the style of Jim O'Rourke and Stephin Merritt, with a few rock/blues efforts thrown in like gravel in the bubblegum. It's all instrumental, no vocals. "Orkney Street" has actually become my ringtone.

I hope you enjoy it. And if you too secretly make your own GarageBand tracks, it's time to share that stuff.

Hmm... muxtape is not loading tracks of GarageBandy goodness. Is this just me or is it not working for you either?

Whatever happened with Muxtape, it's fixed now. Listen away!
