I was recently tasked with creating a 30 minute ambient song for a client for the purpose of helping people relax and drift off to sleep-land. Here is one of the tracks I recorded which I thought I’d pass along to all of you – for free!

Perfect for: Trying to get to sleep, yoga classes, studying, working, thinking, meditating, and when you need to solve a rubik’s cube.

Goddamn Electric Bill Covers Metric (Free Mp3)

gdeb-metric-cover

Last year I did a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds in order to press vinyl for the new album Jazz. Not only did I succeed, but several wonderful people donated an extra amount for me to cover any song they wished. The first song I covered was Feliz Navidad, requested by Boon Sheridan for the holidays. And, thanks to Benoit Laflamme, I am pleased to present my instrumental cover version of “The Police and the Private” by Metric.

The next Kickstarter cover is actually a Goddamn Electric Bill acoustic cover for my friends at QBS Alternative Radio in Doha, Qatar: Our History, Part 2 + Wake Me Up. Stay Tuned!

Goddamn Electric Bill has two songs (Less Evil (written for the film) and Pull The Lever (on the new album, Jazz)) in the 2011 Grand-Jury Prize Winning Sundance Film Festival Film, “Like Crazy Soundtrack” on Paramount Pictures.

GDEB at Sundance with Drake DoremusI had the opportunity to see the film on opening day at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT at the Eccles Theater (1200 seats!) and I can’t stress enough how amazing and beautiful the film was. It was no surprise that the movie sold to Paramount for a festival-topping 4 million dollars shortly after premiering.
