Yesterday I put up a quickie cover of "The Wild Kindness" by the Silver Jews in honor of David Berman's passing.

Even though I don't know the original song... I really liked that track, owl... sounds great.

I listened to both the original and your cover and I liked them both. Your voice suits this song very well.

I have a new album! I had copies at Song Fight Live a couple weeks ago and now it's online too, for pay-what-you-want download:

https://micahsommer.bandcamp.com/album/you-like-me

It's got five Song Fight songs, four SpinTunes songs, and five songs I wrote all by myself.

A couple months ago I composed a children's song for JB and Dorie (and Hugo, of course), called Wiener Dog on a Motorcycle.

It was pretty well-received so I decided to release it as a single.

Here it is on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/0I7EXPLCTFt2Nl5tgENLI6
and on Bandcamp: https://sockpuppet.bandcamp.com/track/w ... motorcycle

and it's on a bunch of other places too

Anyway, if you have kids or know someone with kids, please let them know about this song. Hopefully it'll replace Baby Shark.

"Revolution at Nine", a cover of the Beatles Revolution #9 for solo piano. I'm channeling Fats Waller and Art Tatum, for anyone who knows who they are.

I know, you're thinking "How is this a cover of Revolution #9? I don't hear it in there". Here is a recording that shows you how I used the Beatles song in my piece.

Fine piano playing, and an entertaining project, but I wouldn't call it a cover of Revolution 9. I'd call it "Ragtime Toccata, Inspired by the Famous Beatles' Revolution 9, Synchronized to Its Evolution in Time and Featuring Many Ingenious References, while Bearing a Curious Resemblance to the Beatles' Honey Pie from the Famous White Album, Performed by the Renowned Jim of Seattle for the Benefit of Song Fight."

That was the working title.
