"Some new old guitar​-​based songs" is a 52 minutes patron-only download of almost all unreleased/unfinished songs I wrote on the acoustic guitar (and two early version of tracks from THESE FLEETING MOMENTS). Some of them have been in past patron packages (in 2015), some of them are pieces I had forgotten even existed.

Now that TO TOUCH THE MILKY WAY is finished, I've been thinking about the first couple of these guitar tracks I wrote not long after 10 NEUROTICS; however I could never think of words for them so they languished; and then I moved to Portland and moved on to less rock-cabaret styles of music; and further they languished. I've long wanted to finish these songs, though my biggest stumbling block has been figuring out the words! Some of these got so close that I brought Brian into the studio to play drums on them. I thought that if I listened to all of them together perhaps I'd get inspired and pick four of them to finish up as an EP.

Which tracks do you like best?


These pieces come from three different periods

2009-2010 -- Pieces started after I finished 10 NEUROTICS, when I lived in Brooklyn. Includes an instrumental version of "She's Gone."

2014-2015 -- Pieces from the early part of writing THESE FLEETING MOMENTS. (I included a mix of "Limitless" because when I heard it a few days ago, I couldn't even remember what song it was. I thought it was something I never finished, because in the album's final mix the acoustic guitar are much lower to make room for all the other instruments.)

2016+2017 -- Two songs written during TO TOUCH THE MILKY WAY

All instruments: Sam Rosenthal
Percussion: Brian Viglione


released August 12, 2018
